There is one question which got on hold, where the reason is not really plausible for me and it would be a good discussion and I would like to answer it but I can't find a button to ask for "off hold" or anything. I can't even comment the On-Hold info since I am too new.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – Martijn Pieters, ProgramFOX, ben is uǝq backwards, Hugo Dozois, random
People who can put a question on hold (namely, people with 3,000 reputation and moderators) also have the ability to reopen a question which is on-hold. It also takes 5 votes (or one moderator's vote).
This question is likely better posted on your site's meta. Namely Gaming Meta
That question was closed specifically because it's looking for developer reasoning. Since we're not the developers who made Wolfenstein, there's nothing we can use in our expertise to actually answer the question.
Even in the general sense, since the asker wants to know why modern FPS games are programmed that way, we still can't answer it. Our expertise is focused on playing games. Not dissecting them, and not reading the minds of those who made them.
These questions are off-topic, and we have a category just for them: "Game design and development". We don't allow questions asking, "Why did they design it that way.", for the reasons listed above.
