So. In this section, the game taught me how to fire multiple arrows at once to kill my enemies from range. It did not teach me how to switch weapons when my puny little bow failed to incapacitate my enemies and they ran up to hack me apart with swords that apparently they can use but which are too advanced for me. It also did not teach me how to dodge, if in fact this ability even exists.
I heard a lot of good things about this game. I really did. Sure, I put off playing it, but that was mostly because I bought it around the same time as Skyrim, and come on. Skyrim. But now that I was actually playing it, even in the context of a Let's Play which, by its nature, means making fun of the game to some degree, I was looking forward to seeing why a lot of people really seemed to love it.
I think I know, now: they are masochists, and they hate joy.
