Logic and Gaming

We've all heard the phrase "nit-picking" and it's generally frowned upon. However should can a certain level of logic, ruin our gaming experiences, or make them better in the future? (Dev, Homefront, Industry, Saints Row 4, Saints Row: The Third, Tomb Raider 2013)

Usually we have to suspend some logic. But, what I don't like, is when the narrative doesn't coincide with common sense or established maxims.

For example, in the new movie Lucy, Morgan Freeman is quoted as saying "We only use 10% of our brains." This is false. It ruins the narrative (for me) and sometimes I just can't get past it. The same thing happened with Signs. Aliens that find water toxic invade a planet that is 71% covered in water and harvest humans that are 60% water.

Just doesn't work out. Also, Bioshock Infinite had an indestructible zealot on an airship who (right after take off) immolates herself without any indication as to how she removed her spell of invulnerability +1000.
