Wth is the point of the "show me which way to go" button in a linear game?

I mean are we (gamers) looked upon as not being bright enough to figure out which way to go when our options are 1: back the way we came. 2: down a dead end. and 3: the only way that doesn't belong in #1 and #2?

Just seems like it's an option for people who are too lazy to actually look at their surroundings....

Believe it or not, casuals need it.

I just wish they implemented it better. Now if I switch it off, the bloody meters (which I want) disappear as well.

That's...kinda sad considering there's also an icon that points you to the next objective/door.

I used it all day in the "collect three keys" levels.

there are several moments where it is pretty helpful. outside of that it can be turned off if you really dont want it. personally i dont mind it since it tends to show me where exactly you need to go making it easy NOT to go that way and try to explore as much as you can. Plus the game has a habit of closing off past areas so if you happen to go too far then youre out of luck for anything youve missed.
