What do you hate most about games?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What do you hate most about games?

Games that are too easy.
linear Games that feature a mute character. (RPGs are fine)
Sex Mini Games (why do they exist its like an insult to gamers)
Sex scenes in bioware games (they never made sense)
Activision's games going downhill always because they keep releasing them.
their Fanboys always so obsessed about them that they ruin it.
ripping off movies , it makes normal people think games as a "laughable wanna be movies"

I live for the burn...and the sting of pleasure...
I live for the sword, the steel, and the gun...

Dumbing down, western games are moving towards fps/hack-and-slash. Soon there will be nothing else.

Games are getting far easier (besides a few).

Too many games follow the same method of gameplay and it's getting annoying that every shooter play's like COD and every hack/slash plays like God of War.

The Wii having the ability to have huge, open and diverse games like San Andreas and yet no one takes advantage of those capabilities (No More Heroes).

Not enough games are being released, the 360 went through a surge from 2005 to 2007 and then started to die down. The only games being released now all try to be these huge, AAA masterpieces.

Since Oblivion, I havn't been able to find a game as addictive and time consuming.

The PS3 has so many games I can't buy because so many of them aern't distrubuted outside of Japan.

Nintendo game's have lost the shine they had back in the Nintendo 64 days, the efforts put into all their games this gen seem out shined by the older games like Ocarina of Time, Mario 64, Star Fox, Donkey Kong 64, Majora's Mask, Perfect Dark and Banjo Kazooi (they should never had sold RARE).

Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.


How much time they take away from my life

Too short, 25+ Hours should be standard. And I dont care about the money thats not a problem for me but if I like a game and its over after 6 hours I am pissed.

Also the evolution of games (and hardware) is to slow in my eyes.


I forgot: Too easy, really too easy. 

Around the Network

Nowadays the gaeming trends I hate are:
-Short campaigns
-Repetitive Games
-check points (save points) every 30 seconds
-too much piloted experiences
-the auto-recharging life bars in fps and 3rdps

When characters do things in cut scenes which are so much cooler than anything they do in the actual game. Also checkpoints a few minutes before a difficult section instead of right before.

First off, what's screen tearing? I'm too lazy to look it up.

And secondly, franchises that have a sequel every year and the fact that Infinity Ward never got the message that COD is terrible.

1. Infinity Ward does not want a CoD game every year, Activision does
2. Who is this message going to come from? The reviewers that have given their last few games averages over 90 or the people who have lead to the over 40m sales

I hate that I spend so much time playing games, but at the same time I wish that they where longer and I had more time to play them...

Games in which there is:

- Bad voice acting.

- Over the top cliché characters.

- dumbed down stories, dialogs etc...

- Simplified game play mechanics.

- And developers that care more about those damn casual gamers (Who the hell are they ?) instead of their fan base.
