Start To Crate
Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)StC: -5 (Introcrate Penalty)Criterion’s latest (and currently an Origin freebie if you plunked down for SimCity), Need for Speed: Most Wanted, thumbs its nose at the Start to Crate staff by not only delivering a picturesque view of the crate-filled harbor district in the game’s handsome intro cinematic (under the studio’s title card, no less!), but then also making it impossible to re-view said video (to snap our scientifically rigorous screenshots) without re-installing the game.
We’ve got your number, Criterion.

Very clever, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, hiding those medical crates in your opening cinematic in the foreground.  We thought you were better than this.
(We seriously did.  But you can’t argue with science.)
