Yeah. I totally agree.
Well except for the whole "Quicksave" thing. I like Quicksave in most games. I hardly ever remember to use it but it's nice to use if you want to Quicksave right after a cut scene and a boss fight. It's just nice to have the option. I hate checkpoints in games.
"Not only are our skills being neutered, it's being done in a way which makes us think we're still at the top of our game. It's exactly like The Matrix. Exactly like The Matrix.

It's a damn shame that people think they are "hardcore" because they can play games like Halo and WoW. ANYONE can be good at those games. ANYONE.

You know there are still some good games out there.
