The problem with EoE that most people hate and simply refuse to recognize is that it's a time when circumstances and nature are completely dictating the action. There was nothing any character could've done to change anything as forces beyond their control were already set in action. Shinji was just a pawn that had no power until he was given it by GNR.
Here's another time when NGE goes against the grain of traditional anime, as heroes are generally given the power, from somewhere to overcome overwhelming odds. To change the forces of nature that's working against them. The underdog beats the giants attempting to crush them. Not so in NGE. Each character does exactly as much as they're allowed in terms of physical and psychological ability - and some people get pissed that they didn't do more than they could.
Still dosen't excuse Shinji for his actions but your right. People blame Shinji for 3I for happening for as you said...no god damn reason.
