This poll should be mass distributed to all RPG devs.

Bro, when you tack on mass, you sacrifice flexibility. That's just a straight up fact

Yep that's exactly why I HATE Dead Rising 1 & 2. The entire game is escorting idiots around. That and the story is so stupid, which doesn't help because it makes me just want to kill these people I'm escorting myself. Oh and time management. I do that in real life... I don't want to do that s### in a video game.


Exxxxactly why i hated those escort achievements in DR 1 and that glitch that made the convicts keep appearing in the courtyard so you have to walk Around the mall to get them back and not to mention local psychopaths in the area if you haven't defeated them already.

No, she is the classic slutty blonde, and Mario just refuses to accept that she has been cheating on him with Bowser for 30 years.

She isn't being kidnapped and being rescued, she is just running around and getting caught by a guy in complete denial of what he keeps catching her doing.

Timed objectives with long loading fail screens. For some reason, developers think these are fun, especially in open world games.

Escorting/Defending/Delivering anything frail under heavy attacks while a clock is ticking, followed by stealth in a none-stealth game.

Escorting isn't so bad if they give us decent NPC AI. I've seen a whole one game so far that has this.

Stealth/don't get caught for me.

Especially because so many games that aren't stealth games add this bs mechanic and it just doesn't work. Like, at all.

escort missions are just flat out annoying, it wouldn't be so bad if the people you were escorting weren't such glass houses, give me an escort with invincibility and i'm good. Make them glass houses and it's just flat out stupid.
