    Pokemon just up and forgetting how to leave their pokeballs for a little stroll after Heart Gold/Soul Silver (pokeballs are technology... Totally counts ;)

    Halo 2, assault rifles were removed from existence until the next game.

    You still have infinite ammo in ME2/3, galactic society took cues from the geth and decided that instead of having to wait for your weapon to completely cool down before firing again, it would be better to use disposable heat sinks in the form of thermal clips, and you can simply eject them and insert a new one in the fraction of the time it takes to wait for the weapon to cool down. that "ammunition counter" that you see is how many shots the thermal clip lasts for. Different weapons are tuned to have more or less shots before overheating/needing a new thermal clip, hence different "ammo capacities" Ammo never comes into play. Ammunition is still chipped off of a big block of metal or whatever other material and accelerated with mass effect fields.

    The ammo crafting from Resi 3 was the first thing that came to my mind. Loved it.

    Is it just me that's been directed here from clicking a link on the home screen to an article titled "10 glaring plot-holes in your favourite games" (or something to that effect), which now that I think of it sounds like an old article?

    Perhaps the lack of energy balls in Portal 2 was because GLaDOS was in the process of putting Aperture labs back together and lasers are easier to program? Either that or the wiring for the energy ball switch got all confused. Especially if Wheatley was at the helm. Moron.

    The weapon wheel rolled out after Resistance 1... and then rolled back in for 3.

    Master Chief forgets how to hold two weapons before Cortana wakes him up in Halo 4

    I believe they wrote off the "older" technology in Deus Ex even though its in the future as due to the global economic depression after Human Revolution no one had money to finance the production of all this fancy technology, so they went back to older, cheaper technology. Kind of a sloppy excuse, but whatever.

    Skill Points In Dragon Age Origins are not in Dragon Age 2. When you level up, you allocate ability points and talent points. You no longer get skill points, because skills as they existed in Origins are no longer present. Your character can still do many things that used to be skills, like crafting and lockpicking, but these have migrated to other parts of the game.

    "All these new toys came at the inexplicable expense of bombs and other improvised explosives, which Desmond has suddenly forgotten how to make, despite being host to both Ezio and Connor." Correction: Desmond does not control his ancestors, he simply views the memories. He is not a puppet master telling Ezio to make bombs, simply, Ezio made bombs and so Desmond see it.

    Talking GPS gives bad directions to too many people, driving itself out of GTA 5.

    Maryrdom from CoD 4/WaW.

    that's not technology, just fast reflexes to take the ennemy with you.

    Medkits in Call of Duty. After the first game, the medkits seem to have disappeared from Call of Duty 2.
  • theguyinthecloset - May 5, 2014 5:21 p.m.

    I'd say time based autohealing technology made medkits obsolete.

    Between Halo 3 and 4 everyone forgot they could hold a gun in each hand.

    Is there seriously no dual wielding in Halo 4? I still haven't played it, waiting to find for less than 5$. Might be a while.
  • CrKnight - May 5, 2014 5:28 p.m.

    The last game dual wielding was in was Halo 3 so ODST, Reach and 4 didn't have it.
  • Hyperion - May 5, 2014 6:31 p.m.

    here's a possible explanation. chief could dual wield in 2 and 3 because cortana upgraded his suit to give him an assisted aiming system. she did that between 1 and 2 but during 4 she was going rampant and it was corrupted. it's a stretch i know.
