The things you despise... in the games you ADORE!

Pick a game you love. Adore. Played until your fingers bled (...that was the Summer of 69).

Now... tell us one thing about it you utterly hate.

I know it's tough... games you love are often defended by a magical flame shield and accompanying nostalgia goggles, but sometimes, being able to admit flaws only serves to STRENGTHEN your love for them!

NOTE: You can't have "it's TOO awesome" or other tongue -in-cheek cheaty copout answers. Legitimate downsides only here!

To remain on-topic the games should be leaning towards Xbox One, but feel free to add others dear to you.

Carth in Star Wars KOTOR. I don't despise him, but he is a sook.

The opening planet in KOTOR. Taris? That is so annoying to get through and the reason I never played it more than once.

The boring missions in Rred Dead Redemtion, such as as rounding up cows, etc. Brilliant game otherwise.

I have an XB1 example; Dead Rising 3.

I'm super-zealous about the series and adore the ridiculous, tongue-in-cheek demeanour. The first sold itself as "Dawn of the Dead: The Game" to me, and though now everyone loved the timekeeping aspect, I'm a fan of those "you probably need to play multiple times to see everything" games. In some ways it reminded me of some of my other favourites with tense time-branching like Pikmin, Shenmue and Way of the Samurai.

The sequel was even more campy and hilarious in setting, taking place not just in an isolated playpark of a mall, but in an isolated fantasy wonderland of a Casino strip (Las Vegas).

So in Dead Rising 3, the increased size, massive update in scope, number of zombies, weapons, abilities and vehicles was like a dream come true... so when the setting was a drab, brown city? Man, what a let-down.

I mean, the game is still exceptional, and arguably more fun in general, but the setting doesn't feel "Dead Rising". It feels like you applied all those wonderful, exciting and nutty assets, mechanics and features of Dead Rising... to a totally different setting devoid of the campy colour and fairground-like playfulness I find synonymous with the franchise.

Of course, I still played it... TO DEATH. CHORTLE ETC.

DR3, The final upgrades of the melee/firearm trees kill the game, atleast for me. Every zombie you hit or shoot goes flying back like 10 feet leaving you unable to witness the work you just did on that zombie, it really kills the immersion and feel of being in a crowd.
