Many gamers out there might see where I’m coming from when I talk about the unwanted/unnecessary co-pilot. It’s the person who insists on sitting next to you when you’re playing a game and telling you where to go and what to do.

In many cases, they’ll tell you to “go back” into a room you’ve already left because you “missed something.” But you didn’t miss anything. It’s your game and you know how to play it. They, on the other hand, have never touched the game, but are second-guessing your every move. You want to tell them to be quiet, but don’t want to look mean (or maybe that’s just me).

One of my favorite games to come out in recent years is Mass Effect 2, which is all about character interaction and making choices. But it looks like Olive isn’t very good with choices.
