Games give players countless tools to help turn the tide in their favour. But as players survive in a game longer, they unlock and gather more and more gear until their pockets are brimming with potions, antidotes and bombs.

The feeling of rummaging through your inventory in the middle of a fight is as tense as it is frustrating. I’d love to keep things simple, but most of the games I’m playing right now require as much inventory management as they do skilful combat.
