Honestly 95% of shooters seem to have those same looking red barrels that explode conveniently placed near the bad guys. I mean why the hell are red explosive barrels everywhere? I think their were even some in Quantam Break footage we saw. It kind of bothers me.

Dumb AI.

The Last of Us is a major offender of this. Sneaking around doesn't seem very cool when the AI is running in front of the enemy and nothing happens.

Recently? Frame skips and screen tearing. I haven't been susceptible to it before but lately its just been like...oh yea I'm playing a game. I'm not there....I usually stop shortly after.

Motion controls.


This.

Every movement reminds me I'm PLAYING a game and not "in the game".

When your only doing micromovements with your fingers it becomes entrancing almost and you forget you even have a controller in your hand.

Sounds cheesy, but you "become one" with the game.

Motion controls instantly takes you out of it.

When my son is watching me play a game and he steps in front of the tv and his fro blocks 75% of the screen and i have to yell "head! move!" in a Scottish accent.

I hate that.
