Make a beloved game worse with one simple change

All the bolts on the air grates in the Arkham Batman games have been strengthened and made unable for Bats to rip off for hiding and surveillance.

Any FromSoft game: you can now heal instantly from a pause menu without any risk. Also let the player carry unlimited healing items that are incredibly inexpensive.

In other words, turn them into Dragon's Dogma.

BLOODBORNE: gets Super Smash Bros. Brawl style tripping. Just randomly. At any time. You may trip. It could be in the middle of a boss battle or a dodge roll or anything. You can’t stop it from happening.
Aside from party games, name any other game that doesn't get ruined by that change.

The Last of Us - Better AI. Would be too hard then.

The Last Guardian - Better controls and Trico listening. Would feel unnatural.

Killzone 2 - Less input lag. Game would lose its weighty feel.

Zelda: BotW - No weapon degradation. People would just use the weapon they have the most fun with.

Soulsborne - Pause button. Game would become too easy.

Half Life 3 - Existing. Would make all other games look worse.

Majora's Mask: Have the Bombers give you hints on how to find everything in the game, and they never leave you alone until they give you their hints.

I see your Sekiro Easy mode and raise you a dedicated dodge button for DMC.


Make any Final Fantasy episodic.
Add cool downs to every special move in a Capcom, ArkSys, or NRS fighter.
Remove all puzzles from Zelda.
Teen (or lower)-Rated Mortal Kombat.

Sonic 2 - if you’re playing as Sonic and Tails, Tails getting hit causes you to lose rings

The beta version (with Hidden Palace) “features” this. Was probably a bug more than an intended mechanic, but holy shit would it have destroyed that game.

1 Star if police see you breaking basic traffic laws such as speeding, running red lights and driving on wrong side of the road.

Bloodborne, weapon breaks like in BOTW.

Resident Evil 2, unlimited ammo from the start by design.

MGSV, getting spotted will instant fail the mission except boss fights.

DMC5, the entire game you play as Nero.

Mega Man 2, when you defeat a boss, you don't"t automatically get their ability. Instead it's a RNG lootbox with the power being more rare than exotic. Retires start at the boss select.
