Character Flaws: Ten Game Heroes Who Fail at the Simple Stuff

The Space Marine, Doom: Can't Look Up

Congratulations, you're one of the few, the proud, the space marines. You're trained to employ all of the latest high-tech weaponry and battle-hardened to face any threat. There's just one problem. You were sick on the day they taught you how to look up and down. But it's too late for all that -- you've got to get on this ship to Mars. No worries, you shouldn't run into any trouble there.

    yes immortality can be a bad thing. theres been so many times that ive put in a god cheat (throwback term) and not had as much fun after getting used to it... sure its fun at first but the limitations is what actually seems to give the games depth and realism say...dying? as far as resident evil 5 goes i believe that the devolopers left the run and shoot ability out of the picture to enhance the strategy aspect of the game. or maybe slow down the pace of the action or lengthen the game itself or "if it aint broke dont fix it" . regardless, it seems a bit out of date. couldnt they improve on any gameplay from resident evil 4? maybe walk and shoot? baby steps and then fire your semi-auto handgun? no? seriously?

    Only played the Most recent 'Prince of Persia' on PS3 a cpl times but my friends & I found the "Hand of God" thing a lil' weird! But it is nice to never die and have to start over from the beginning of a tough level!!

    Wow, some of you guys get serious hard-ons about the whole "running and shooting" thing. It's a ****ing GAME, get over yourself. I bet you even stopped reading the list just to ram on your keyboard about how unfair it is that people at GameDaily have opinions about ****. Get the hell over it!

    Not dieing is a flaw? Seriously I always thought most games were like "God I just keep dying to damn much" but now they complain?

    They're complaining that he can't shoot and move, something almost all video game characters can do. They wouldn't mention it if all video game characters couldn't do that

    The phrase, gentlemen, is called "spray and pray."

    I understand its actually difficult to accurately shoot things while running, but really... if there's a massive horde of zombies behind you, I can understand that even if you just shoot all willy nilly you'll at least hit ONE every shot. If it was four or five, yeah, I'd definately stop and shoot. But if it was a huge crowd, i'd run and fire an M16 randomly for all I care.

    If you were being chased by a horde of angry zombies you would figure out a way to run and shoot! Sure it won't be accurate... but sometimes you don't care!
