Makes sense to me.
Same goes with power-ups. That’s the only way I know my way to work in the mornings, I follow the trail of ammo and health packs.
Before you walk into your bosses room, is there a large room filled with naught but ammunition and health?
If only real-life boss rooms had save points right before them, asking for that raise (or telling your boss to go screw himself just to see what happens) would be so much easier.
