That's pretty similar to how I felt about Doom3: People
complained how "unrealistic" it was to not be able to duct tape
the flashlight to the gun, but...For crap's sake, it's a game
about a demon invasion from hell and one guy single-handedly
holding them all off. Realism and believability were obviously
never the point. :)
'Course, that game had other issues, but realism (or lack of)
was never one of them.
But maybe I'm misremembering. Saw it a long time ago.
Never saw it myself, but that's what I'd heard it was about.
It's funny, people are willing to suspend their disbelief for
demons from hell, but not for the lack of a flashlight and duct
tape. It's probably because it was an annoying game mechanic, and
taping a flashlight to a gun is something so simple and mundane
that you *can't* suspend your disbelief at Doom Guy being unable
to find a way to use both at once somehow.
