what annoys you most from games?

59 Replies 558 Views Created 21-02-2012

Is it unskippable cutscenes, broken controls, laggy and/or tacked-on multiplayer, glitcheyness or unnecessary quick time events?

Lacking mapping controls as you like them.

 

Really this could be on the OS side of PS3 to be able and map anything as you like, a button to another button etc.

 

This was the most surpising thing about a game console - lacking this.

Just general lazy  Q&A testing for a game really annoys me. Obviously Skyrim sticks out for this for PS3 because of the problems it's had and the time it took to fix it. Fifa 12 aswell really bugged me due to them not adding the option to change weather and day/night cycle in the launch, which was in the start in Fifa 11.

 

I just think that devolping has become a case of " well the game launches next week it failed this,this and this but we can always patch that later". I don't think creating games like that is right. I think it should be launched at it's best and then the only reason for patches is to add trophys for DLC.

 

You wouldn't go to buy a car and the salesman says " oh well it has no wheels at the moment but we'll get them to you in about 3 weeks time".  

 

Then again due to pressure from a impatient gaming community and gaming sites and publishers.Games are rushed to get them out of the door to the baying public and to appease the publishers to get a quick buck. So we only have ourselfs to blame really.

Parallel leveling on RPG's.

 

What I mean is when enemies level up when you do.  What is the point?  It defeats the whole object of an RPG.  Oblivion is a prime example although it is a great game.

 

Artificially difficult sections on short games to make them longer.  For example Catherine & Ninja Gaiden are very hard games from start to finish so that's fine.  Some other games are fine until you get to a point when they become ridiculously hard before returning to normal again.  It just feels cheap.

 

Also linked to the paragraph above are games that require luck over skill to beat.

Hard thing to say really, but I guess the one thing I dislike the most are idiotic immature main characters. I don't want to play as an idiot. A scary amount of japanese games had this problem this console generation.

 

Other thing are things like idiotic side characters that you have to keep alive during some escort mission and they happily rush towards their death.

 

And then of course the stuff mentioned in the opening post, especially QTEs.

Oh man. You are so right re: Escort missions.

Why is it programmers put so much time into enemy artificial intelligence yet programme allies like they could be outwitted by your average pebble.

Oh and another pet hate I have about games that I've just remembered about from starting the SSX demo.

Games that say ''PRESS START'' on the main menu but you can progress by pressing X as well :| Then on other games it tells you to ''PRESS START'' and you can only press start to progress.

If it tells you to ''PRESS START'' then make it so only pressing start works, don't say ''PRESS START'' and allow me to press X, that should say ''PRESS ANY BUTTON'' to continue.

So glad I got that off my chest :D
