You would think something as silly as a flashlight wouldn't make me rage but here we are. Why did they take away the handheld flashlight from the original xbox version?!? It made it so much more tense having to put away your weapon to see where you were going. Bonus points for smacking people in the face with it as well (could be used as a melee weapon if needed). Now you have a shoulder mounted flashlight that you can pop on and off at will while retaining your weapon. Some people will call it a quality of life improvement I'm sure. As for me, it really retracts from the atmosphere and suspense it once had many years ago.

When the BFG version came out on PS3, they made this change.

However, that version also didn’t have the dynamic lighting of the original either, so thankfully they restored it for this version.
For any whom this post happens to offend, I can get you a great deal on a spine.
