how do people feel about games giving players overall less control in games now?

like the way in tomb raider how she just automatically goes behind cover when near object, instead of having to press a button. or in uncharted how he automatically crouches behind someone when going for a stealth kill, or in assassins creed the way they took away the A button for jumping.
Kinda just makes it feel less like your playing a game and more like your watching a movie. what do you guys think?

The mechanic in Tomb Raider somewhat works. The one in Uncharted doesn't work. Let me crouch on my own. Overall, I don't think anyone likes it. At least MGS still allows for full-on stealth.

Many games now have a lot of things you can do at any moment. To slightly automate some things (should) make it easier to control.

My signature is better than yours.

It's been like this for almost 20 years now, mostly thanks to the psx.

I just beat Prototype 2, and you can literally just hold down R and run down the street...your guy will just jump over cars automatically or run up the sides of buildings.

Honestly, I thought it was great...if I'm sprinting to get somewhere, I don't want to have to jump over random crap every two seconds, I'd rather he just haul it.

It depends on how it's done. There are definitely some things I'd rather have complete control over (crouching in a shooter as was mentioned)

Your penis is playing a game, and your other penis is watching a movie.
