Yeah, that's what we're talking about - except most were a lot more obvious than that. And you're right, it is pathetic that a modern game would implement them so crudely. Everywhere you went there were invisible walls preventing you from going where you'd be able to in any other game. No other game I can think of featured invisible walls so obvious and so numerous - not even games like Half-Life, released over 14yrs ago.
Was it a big deal on its own? No. Combined with all the other shit? Absolutely. id Software has absolutely no idea what constitutes a good first person shooter any more, despite them effectively creating the genre. It's rather sad.
