Things I hate: -QTEs. Screw that, it's never fun. - Extremely scripted/constricted gameplay. Flanking? "You are leaving the combat area" - Unskippable cutscenes -1 save autosave/no manual save. Seriously, why? -DLC check/connect to servers on every startup. I just wanna hit load game and get on with it. Don't spam me you jerks. -In-game DLC stores/pitches. If I want DLC I will go look for it >:( -Designed for microtransactions. I bought the game, now you want me to pay extra to play it without insane amounts of grinding? -Accounts/stat tracking/Social networking. This is especially a problem on PC but also happen on consoles where they can't even use the DMR excuse. I never use my battlelog, Origin, GFWL, Social club, C&C4 or Crysis 2 account for anything other than signing in to play a game. And no I don't want to share it on facebook.
Things I dislike: - Levelling/weapon unlock systems in any form of competitive online. Want a dot sight on that M4? Well you better deal with the crappy iron sights for 50 kills first. Want to pilot a chopper effectively? Well first you have to be a sitting duck until you unlock flares. - Long puzzle sections in action games. - Characters whos personality solely revolves around their sexual orientation. - Farming/low drop rates.
Letting me know in-game that DLC exists and that certain features and stories cannot be accessed without purchasing said DLC.
Seriously...keep that crap out of my experience. If I want the damn DLC, I will download it. But I don't need my game experience itself reminding me that I don't have it (looking at you Dragon Age: Origins).
Yo Sephiroth, I'm really happy for you, and imma let you finish but Kefka Palazzo is the best Final Fantasy villain of all time.
