I question the validity of that assertion. (Criticism)

Well put. And I question every single person who assumes that it's an easy fix. And it all depends on how a developer decided to program it into their game. A good example is why it's so easy to change an air filter on one car, but you have to pull the engine out to replace it on another car.

Either it’s a supercar where ease of maintenance doesn’t matter, or the engineers are fucking dumb (or their design goals were fucking dumb, I guess). I spend half my day cursing engineers’ dumb fucking decisions.

In bigger companies, it're rarely the actual engineers decisions. Computer Science majors actually take classes on how to deal with managers and people that are non-software. Yes, there are stupid Engineers but there are also engineers that are very talented and are told to just do something.
