    From PC Gamer:

    All this time, Aliens: Colonial Marines‘ stupid AI may have been caused by a single typo
    Five years later, one modder uncovers the smoking ‘a’. Was a single letter really the problem?

    Aliens: Colonial Marines released on February 11, 2013. It wasn’t very good. As Chris Thursten noted in our review, the AI of the aliens was especially bad. At the time, he said, “aliens pop out of vents and pop back in again, get stuck on the ceiling, fall off walls and run in circles.” Well, it turns out the game’s laughably stupid xenomorphs may have been caused by a typo—more specifically, a single letter mucking up the game’s code.
