  1. Drive a car with a manual transmission (a lot of "racing enthusiasts" would disagree with me, and frankly, to hell with all of you!)
  2. Climb down a ladder

Write neatly. I've never a seen a game where you can write neatly when it passes you control of a pen or something (think Nintendogs or Duke Nukem: Forever's demo).

Accurately engage/follow others in melee combat in a sensible matter. I'm looking at you, Dark Souls targeting system!

This is probably the biggest, most glaring thing for this topic.

Move through seemingly open space near the edges of towns or on highways (invisible walls).

Driving manual is harder in games... how exactly? And ladders involve you usually hitting a button or holding up on a stick, if even that. Some games you don't do anything other than walk near them and you hop right up.

@MordeaniisChaos: If you play it on a G27 racing wheel with actual shifter, then it's easy, and pretty amazing, might I add.

When I try to shift manually on a controller with buttons though, I fuck up completely, even though I have driven a manual transmission car for years. It just feels wrong.

Finding weapons, teamwork, killing yourself (I shouldn't be able to survive a 200 foot drop without taking any damage), jumping from one platform to another, Driving (GTA IV, my car doesn't skid and swerve like that!), and walking without tripping or falling down stairs. (I don't trip and fall down stairs....often :P)

Lol, how do you light your house on fire making cereal? I never understood that about the Sims games. :P

I forgot to add going to the bathroom. Your character RARELY goes to the bathroom....unless he's Duke Nukem.

Talking naturally with people or have any sort of interaction other than violence really.
Walking at a normal speed and sticking to the group.

That made me lol in real life. I have never understood how preparing a salad caused my kitchen to go up in flames, but then again, how do we know the Sims takes place in our reality? oOoOoo

QTEs.

... I have no idea what I mean by that, but ruminate on it for awhile and see if you can dig a meaning out of it.
