I feel like every MGS game needs a segment like this, otherwise the games would be too perfect. I can't think of a single part of MGS3 that I didn't enjoy playing, apart from said sequence.

fucking Skyrim I swear. I spent 5 hours trying out mods that are supposed to fix this.

I kind of liked Halo CE's health system.

You have regenerating shields but you also have health.

When you run out of shields you start taking health damage and health doesn't regenerate without medkits.

Good times in tome4.

There's a boss called The Crusher. His preferred opening move is teleporting you and himself to hell, where you get hit by fire damage every turn while he heals from it, because he's a demon. There is no way to escape hell except by killing the boss or by dispelling the sustain he's using.

Because factors like barrel length, firing mechanism, and barrel rifling rate all have an effect on the rounds speed and accuracy. Irl it's not enough to matter because a bullet to the chest is a bullet to the chest. The differences get exaggerated in shooting games so that the guns can feel different.

Oblivion and Morrowind destruction magic was OP as fuck. My cousin had it towards the end of his Morrowind playthrough that he could kill half of the NPCs standing outside in Balmora with just two AoE fireballs. In Oblivion he could kill just about ANYTHING with the one touch spell he made. Knocked Dagon unconscious in three hits. Then Skyrim rolled around and suddenly he could barely do shit with destruction.

Maybe you're just bad.
>>
>>258151878
You're literally retarded. Static or not, it still doesn't change your center point. When it opens up, when it snaps back the crosshair is still centered on one point.
Lets take for example, Day of Defeat. Your cross hair moves up as the recoil kicks up. You fight back against the recoil to keep the cross hair centered in place. In CS once the spray pattern kicks in you can put your crosshair at the legs in order to get a headshot, and the animation is completely out of place with the action it performs.

Twilight Town is a 4 hour tutorial. The only way to get past it is to make an extra save of the game that you load whenever whenever you want to play the game again. But that isn't necessary because KH2 is awful.

Dusk
