If game doesn't give in or say what to do, they begin thinking that the game is some way broken instead of thinking what am I doing wrong.
Yeah, that's what I was getting at. Glad you agree!

There is evidence of that, too, like the IGN reviewer who said it took him 2 hours to defeat a "boss" because his strikes were barely doing any damage. I don't mention that to shame or diss the reviewer, but it's clear there is a lack of understanding from even professional game reviewers on how ELEX and other PB games actually work. Education could really help there.
