Then you misunderstood me, my main source of frustration comes from what I wrote in the last paragraph. Hence the:

Afterwards I launched Deus Ex again on Deus Ex difficulty without crosshairs or object highlighting. A much better game.

No, difficulty isn't what stops me from playing stuff (especially since I beat the boss on easy anyway, as explained in the posting). The difficulty spike was just an annoyment. But what I can't stand is when there is a huge disconnect between what happens during gameplay and what happens in cutscenes/scripted events. In this specific fight it would have been perfectly fine with me if the cutscene with me loosing would have come when I actually lost against that dude. But when I finally beat him after I can't remember how many attempts just to see the cutscene... no, that is just botched scripting in my opinion. Or was it really important for the story if he looses 5, 20 or 50% of his health before the cutscene plays?

In case of Witcher 2 it was the compilation of all those little annoying things to one big pile of anger. Today I was contemplating continuing Witcher 2, but I decided to continue my NG+ in Dark Souls instead.
Currently playing: Dark Souls 3
