Time limits. I hate time limits.



I hate the creatures that have like 2 hp but are annoying as hell to kill. Usually bats. Those piss me off, I understand why they are implemented in games, but still They are found (or were found anyway) in virtually every Action/Adventure/RPG/Horror game ever made. They piss me off.

Play Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm ... it's full of them in the Story mode....

Around the Network

Only one save

Places that look the same but aren't.




It's more game specific but always one level in each halo, always pissed me off. Halo 1 Library, Halo 2 Library, Halo 3 Cortana.



- Autosave in places where there shouldn't be

- Cutscenes that in total are 2/3 or 3/4 of a game's length

- Unskipable cutscenes

- Too much focus in graphics that the evidence of little to no debugging is more obvious than sweet sugar

- Camera that focus more on the environment around the game character than the character.

- forcing waggle in a game designed for button pressing controls



^well you just had to go and get technical!

/LOL nah, those are good points. good post.

Save Points.
Metroid Prime 3 - Worse fucking save system ever. Every save point is so damn far and at one point they dont let you save. If you decide to turn youre system off be prepared to replay hours of gameplay.
Castle of Shikigami III - There is NO save point......


Random Battles.
Make no damn sense! Only game I can accept having this is Pokemon because youre looking for them.

Multiple Boss Forms
Ninja Gaiden & The Minish Cap - I understand maybe 2 but once you hit 3 or more youre pushing it. Not only does it get frustrating but it takes some of the excitement away.

Waggle Controls
Dont add fucking waggle controls for the sake of motion!
