Resident Evil

Man I remember playing that game and pulling my hair out trying to make the main dude jump. I was like “what the f***? He won’t f***ING JUMP!!! Screw this game!” Years later I dug it out and beat it senseless and killed Hitler making the world a safer place for democracy, but I was still pissed the game wouldn’t let me jump.

Today I look back and realize how innovative that game was by making you grapple and not jump. That’s just good game design, and some of those puzzles would have been easy if you could jump.
Too bad I was so stupid back then to know that. I just wanted to jump.
