"Follow me!" the NPC says. So I do.
Well, I try to.
When I walk, the NPC is moving faster than me. I fall behind. When I run, the NPC is moving slower, and annoyingly alternates between walking and running because he or she is incapable of matching my pace precisely.
Why is this a problem? Why does it show up in every single game that has me follow an NPC or has an NPC follow me?
