Is it just me or are many well-known Unity games actually quite badly made?

Consider if you will that this laptop will happily run a game like Skyrim without issue. Would you expect a low-action 2D game like Oh Sir to run so hot it can't get past the tutorial without making my computer self-terminate?

First idea I had was to limit the amount of CPU cores it was allowed to use. Starting at 50+% CPU usage, I cut it from all four to just one. This made the game stutter. Wildly. It needed at least three to not stutter, and still used 50+%.

Then I used the NVidia control panel's per-application settings to disable a bunch of things and only then would the game run smoothly on a single core, at around 20% CPU usage.

So far I've played and won two rounds, letting the system rest inbetween. And Oh Sir is by far not the only Unity-based game I've encountered with this issue.

What's up with that?

I think it's the Unity engine to be honest. Those games tend to run like someone running a marathon with a rope choking their neck.

Or when I do any sort of running competition.

Unity is a poor engine that is overused, I'm not even surprised.

And then there's games like Cuphead. Which, stupidly, does not disprove either of your arguments.

It's overused because its so easy to do stuff in the engine and its very user friendly, I've tried unreal engine and I couldn't even figure out how to get menus up like blueprints didn't really help that all the tutorials to find it were outdated.
