I don't think that is entirely fair. Even if I don't always
have multiple options, that doesn't make it the same as never
having multiple options. Most items in your inventory result in a "I can't use this
", does that mean we should simplify the inventory to a single option and let the game decide what item is the appropriate one to use? If we condense Look, Talk, Use down to a single Interact option, why not take Wrench, Pencil, Rubber Chicken (with a pulley in it) and Gem and just turn them into Inventory? Is there a significant difference I'm not seeing?
