When did you realize X and Y weren't the 10/10 pokemon games you were hoping for

Upon realizing that...

-It just feels like they used pretty graphics to cover up for the fact that it's kind of a half-arsed game.
-This game is pathetically easy compared to past installments, especially anything pre-BW.
-Shoves easymode in your face with the xp share after the first gym. Granted you can just turn it off, but that thing really doesn't need to exist until post-game. Don't tempt new people into becoming dependent on the xp share.
-There's hardly anything to do post-game compared to previous gens, (BW1 had this problem too)
-There's some lazy recycled locations (one-room caves),
-Unable to explore any of the other power plant facilities on route 13, even though they tease you with doors leading to them.
-Too many bland linear maps, (Route 1 is pretty and all, but I like to wander off the beaten path)
-90% of locations have no reason to be visited again after your first time there.
-I realized this while doing a speedrun in 5:43- You get stopped A LOT by npc's/events to tell you things you already know.
-Gamefreak still pretends IV's are some kind of secret/mystery.
-Route music is bland, except for route 15 and co., which is simply too short/ needs another phrase
-There's a lack of balance with who gets mega forms.
-Absol's mega form should have just been a standard evolution. Seriously. It's just way too awesome to be unable to hold an item, and utilize it's 115 base speed on the first turn.

And the graphics weren't even that great (except the battles).

Mega Pokemon don't count. They're temporary and just power boosts.
