I enjoyed it up until every time I even looked at a vehicle I would have three hostile jeeps spawn behind me I'd have to kill.

So your saying 5 billion people do not contribute to humanity based on what exactly?

Someone like me doesn't need the extra hint to "go upstairs", if you're being thorough it's not uncommon to complete objectives before you were even supposed to know about them.
Same here. I tend to explore the crap out of games, and if I think I'm going in the direction I'm supposed to in order to advance the plot, I turn back and make sure I haven't missed anything.
I'm guessing these playtesters were braindead. If you don't know what you're supposed to do, how about, I don't know, just trying some stuff and see where that takes you?

Even though its can be frustrating, it makes it more interesting than just having an arrow and a single path to go.

 

I say keep it this way!

The last time I checked, being intelligent had nothing to do with contributions to society. Welcome to the five billion.

I often find CoD-like games harder than these "complicated" old school style games. Why? Because I try to do things that make sense and get blocked by invisible walls, scripted events, and other "Herp derp we never thought someone would shoot before bring told to shoot, we don't know how to react" shenanigans.

Either those beta testers are 14 years old, or they grabbed a bunch of console players used to "on the rail" shooters. They should hire some better beta testers.

Reminds me of Prototype 2. Was watching a friend play it when he started, and it was filled with tips and hint to get you started.

Then I happened to be around when he was finishing the game, and the damn end boss fight had hints and tips.

Any game that tries to hold your hand is going to be a boring game. So, kudos to the developer to making something that will force players from floating through the damn thing.

A good example of non-handing in a game, imho, would be Minecraft. Choose a world seed and go!
