Yeah day 1 updates are the absolute worst. Nothing irrational there.

-rubber banding in racing games (i'm looking at YOU mario kart!)
-cutscenes
-when the game gimps your ability to move/function as a plot device (the opening sequence of MGSV)
-pointless dream/drug sequences (FarCry 3/4, Max Payne)
-QTEs :gomez:

Yeah, this could be annoying on MK, but it also kept the game fun.

Puzzles are awesome. Gotta love LIMBO, Inside, Braid, Portal 1&2 etc. They give you a sense of accomplishment.
