you not being able to operate the system, doesn't mean it's bad. Having to get used to a system doesn't make it bad. You people just suck at adapting and if you run into trouble you start crying. Same shit every day. if you wanna ambush at the start of a fight, untether your party morons and go into turn based mode before engaging if the enemies are patrolling. LEARN THE GAME GODDAMNIT
I'm sure I could find a way to steer a car without a steering wheel as well. But it would be very annoying and has nothing to do with my skill as a driver. Stop being an apologist for bad game mechanics. It helps absolutely no one. Not the players and not the developers.
