i don't mind when there aren't that many weapons as long as they are useful and specific and don't overlap. like shotgun, rifle, pistol, etc. some games with lots of guns have about 5 pistols that barely differ. also it means that the rifle you start with isn't a weaker version of what you get at the end which also kinda annoys me that it takes so long to get the really cool guns.
