The fact that Mario can freeze things ICE SOLID out of nowhere by eating an ice flower? he can even fire them under water, so should that freeze the entire lake hes might be swimming in

That should be a mechanic in future games, make the land above a water level inaccessible unless Mario has a ice flower and clips above the ice

If you don't want to be suspicious, then you want to act like you're trying to help the town. Be constructive towards the game, share suspicions that aren't blatantly disprovable, cast lynch votes that aren't just a bandwagon vote with no explanation (we're all guilty of this one), ask people questions about their thoughts on things.

You don't want to post super often, but when you do post you want it to have content and not just fluff. Don't be afraid to share your thoughts, but also use your brain before you throw suspicions out there. I say this because we mislynched Taycamgame last game because he threw out a suspicion against me that literally made no sense in the context of the game. If he hadn't committed that brain fart, we would've been more likely to lynch one of the actual bad guys that day and not just a townie who didn't think before they spoke.

But it's not supposed to be logical, it's supposed to be magical
Magic isn't in real life. We just call things that seem magical because it's an event we're not use to seeing either regularly or at a certain frequency.
So, I'd say this thread is for things that are supposed to make sense in-universe following similar logic that we would expect to see in real life. For example, in Call of Duty, you can heal bullet wounds by hiding for a few seconds. That's the kind of stuff this thread is for; stuff that sacrifices realism for gameplay reasons. If something is very clearly meant to be magic, like the magic tunics in Zelda, then it's not 'bad video game logic', it's just magic. There's no reason why Zelda can't have 'actual' magic (which it does). Having magic in your game doesn't really sacrifice realism because it's inherently not something that CAN realistic in the first place, whereas being able to break a 100ft drop by rolling is a much better case.

Never released an episode anyway.

Why can mario jump so much when he is so fat and how does he consume his power ups, does he eat them?

In the 1983 arcade game, Mario Bros., angry crabs, flies & turtles can clog up pipes.

For crabs, flies and turtles to be clogging up a pipe is DISGUSTING. Imagine the amount of flies needed to clog a PIPE!

In Pokemon, if you don't have a Pokemon who can't use cut, you can't get past a wee tree. Even though you could burn it, crush it, or just squeeze past it. What were they thinking? (Particularly gen 1)
It's kinda sad to see that there aren't many episodes based on Link being the main protagonist. Hopefully I can see more in the future, because LoZ was one of my favorite franchises. ;)

In Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, the monks in stage 1 set up traps in the Shaolin temples (China) to kill off intruders can fall for their own traps themselves. I mean really!

Did these Shaolin monks ever tried to evade the traps THEY freaking set before Sub-Zero breaks in?!?

In Miitopia, it's possible to have a Mii get in a quarrel with someone, get the angry status, but can still protect the offender if they have the "kind" personality. Or in simple terms, a Mii is protecting someone they're mad at.

I mean, this is coming from a series where a male dinosaur can produce eggs in a matter of seconds and use them as weapons.
