You sort of have to wonder why the poor souls always die without expending the last of their medical supplies. You'd imagine they took one glance at their bag during a life-or-death predicament, saw that they only had one bandage left over after all of their woes leading up to that point, and just went “fuck it.”
Sort of like how I tend to play a lot of games, actually.
I love the near-death situations so sometimes I don't heal because I seriously think I'm gonna survive (mixed results with that). Or maybe the skeleton had a clunky menu and couldn't use his item quickly enough. Oh oh or he could've been in a dungeon crawler and thought by the colour of the bottle that it was a poison and not a healing item at all.
