As a gamer, what is your biggest gaming pet-peeve?

As a a gun fan in reality, for me, when a game has guns (95% of the industry), but the devs don't pay extra, technical attention to the guns, it kinda bothers me. For instance, when reloading, the character automatically clears the chamber, wasting a round. Or after firing 100 rounds and finding not a single shell or magazine cartridge because they disappeared (Mafia and Max Payne got this right 10 years ago, what happened?).

It's not enough to make me put down the game, I probably wouldn't be able to be a gamer if it did, but it's just enough to make me notice, pulling me out of the game for a second.

What's yours?

If I can customize my appearance, it damn well better show up in the cutscenes. I don't mind prerendered stuff, but my character shouldn't be showing up in his default clothing.

I'm looking at you Force Unleashed... fixed it a bit with the second one though. More in-game cutscenes.

But as far as games in general, Checkpoints/Saving. A lot of games have this problem that it's not challenge but frustration. I hope more game devs fully use checkpoints or better saving systems.

Shooters that have basically the same AI as 10 years ago, i.e. "Spawn, run to pre-defined spot, start shooting at player", so that some times you can run past the guy while he is still heading to his spot, completely oblivious to you until then.

Poorly done microtransactions.

No good microtransactions come to mind at the moment, but I can think of a ton of bad ones...

Yeah I agree with that. Like on the old games where you can't change the sensitivity whatsoever.

No control customization is stupid. Also, pausing during cut scenes without skipping them... you know, sometimes I have s*** to do and need to get up, but I still want to be able to follow the story when I come back.
