Incorrect use of thee and thou in video games

Just a quick post about one of my pet peeves in video games, incorrect use of thee and thou (and other archaic English terms and conjugations). Both words mean "you" but thou is used as a subject and thee as an object. Middle English verb conjugation is super easy compared to some other languages I can think of.

I go
thou goest
he, she, it goeth
we go
you go
they go

Second-person pronouns (nominative, possessive, objective)
thou, thy/thine, thee
you, your/yours, ye
Source

English no longer conjugates pronouns, with the exception of "whom" but people hardly use that anymore either. So I get why this mistake happens so much. I guess it's just because I grew up in the Mormon church, so I'm used to hearing these terms use properly. So when "Thee dost dare invade my home!?" pops up in Final Fantasy Dimensions, it makes me cringe.
