    I've unlearned how to sprint without a sprint toggle button. If I have to hold anything to run, I'll go insane.

    What about games where you have to equip an item to be able to sprint?

    To be honest, gyro controls for aiming in e.g. Zelga BotW are a good thing... when you are in lying in your sofa.
    Each time I get my Switch for commute I need to kind of unlearn (stop moving the console by reflex trying to fine aim like an idiot) that and use the analog alone... or try to compensate for the ever changing acceleration vectors of the bus (which is too much of a PITA).

    I don't know if that counts anyway.

    Playing some games on a keyboard and mouse. I use a controller whenever I can.

    I can't think of anything recent with that mechanic, the only games that come to mind are Metroid and Half-life. It's inoffensive when it's for something like a rocket jump, but that's ancient history as well. While we're on the subject of sprinting, stamina bars need to go. If I can sprint for longer than a character in a video game the mechanic comes across as stupid.

    Pretty much this.
    I'm so used to bashing the A button to sprint that I cannot get accustomed to games that require you to hold the A to sprint.

    I saw it as recent as some of the DS RPGs, worse still I recall one of those which running would drop your health (though it was one of the first).

    Also maybe you are more fit than the 20 years trained special forces type. Did you ever think of that?

    See, the DS isn't recent anymore, it'll be able to drink, drive and marry legally in a few years, hopefully not all three at the same time.

    you cant unlearn skill in the sims
    which is sad
    if you ever get a sim with level 10 fitness
    then you can make it eat a lot, be a potato couch, etc
    your sim can become muscular-shaped back again super fast
    same with all other skills, even if you dont practice them for a long time
    your skills "skillness" wont decreases

    The Prinny platformer games for PSP removed the physics that made Super Mario Bros revolutionary. They did a good job of making the game challenging and interesting with throwback physics, but find me one person that didn't have to unlearn 2 decades worth of intuitive platforming skills.
