Weekly Webcomic Wrapup is totally illogical


Recent Nerd Rage and Corpse Run comics brought up an interesting point about flawed logic in video games. There are some games that force you to accept their odd premises in order to forge ahead in their stories. In the case of these comics, not being able to combine items to solve puzzles in Zelda or using the work of young adventurers as the basis of a Pokemon professor's research seems questionable to their respective artists.

However, many of these games don't give us much of an opportunity to question their flaws; we just have to accept that these details don't always add up for the sake of the story as a whole. So, this week's question is: What are some of your favorite examples of flawed logic in games? While you ponder the more confusing aspects of gaming, be sure to check out last week's webcomics and vote for your favorite after the break!
