AI innovation is never there anymore, although with SOMA we can see that Frictional Games did try harder than most other studios so I give them credit for it.

I highly agree on the AI of AAA games lacking to an extreme degree. Reason I can't understand the hype over certain AAA games. Major reason I hardly brother buying any AAA games any more.

The fleshers are distinct. I actually like their concept. Probably the most tricky enemy to deal with, especial that teleporting (though, listening for the bang helps pin point them).

Frictional Games is one of the rare few devs I like. Kind of the reason I feel like they could of just did an extra bit more and really made a good game even better.

I'm just a crazy nutty gal that likes computer hardware.
Got bad hardware hoard habit too.
