Op Ed

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Rules For Games- Do & Donít #1. Thanks Morris.
Donít: leave diary entries by one person scattered over miles of corridors, buildings and countries. Thatís not how a diary works. A diary tends to be all in one place. Most people, when journaling their lives, donít tend to scribble it out on the nearest scrap of paper and then leave it wherever the wrote it. Because that would be utterly insane.

I prefer regenerating health over health items, but I do think both are kinda silly. I wish games would just have the player jump from one body to the next whenever they die. So you go into a mission with a squad of 20 guys. You get killed, your viewpoint jumps to another one of the squad members.

Speaking of regenerating health, it seems like that system is not in any Japanese games at all. I guess Japanese game developers and/or gamers love health items. Personally I hate navigating through menus to use a health item during a battle. It breaks up the pace of the game. I've been playing Onimusha 4 on PS2 again, and I have to stop and use a health item 3 or 4 times per boss battle. Kinda sucks. Happens all the time in Metal Gear games too. And there's nooooo way most of these boss battles are meant to be beaten without using a health item!
