Things you hate about video games

#1JackyBoyJaneyGiPosted 11/30/2013 12:01:17 AM
This is a list of everything I could think of that I hate about video games.

- Survival Horror games having more action that terror *Resident Evil 5*
- A single game getting tons of updated editions with minor improvements *Madden and Street Fighter II and III*
- Medusas *Castlevania and God of War*
- Lagging for online games *Grand Theft Auto V*
- Regional Locking *Nintendo*
- Good games only released in Japan *Fatal Frame IV*
- Getting up and swinging the controller *Wii Mote, Kinect, PlayStation Move*
- Motion Sensing *PowerGlove = Sixaxis, PlayStation Move, Kinect, Wii Mote*
- Wii Games that don't let you use a regular controller *Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword*
- Loading times *PlayStation 3*
- One hit deaths *Contra*
- Lack of difficulty setting *Most NES games*
- Battery packs used for saving are dead *NES, Game Boy*
- Annoying camera angles *Super Mario 64*
- Broken analog sticks *Nintendo 64 controller*
- Low draw distance *Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas*
- A game series getting too many new games *Call of Duty*
- Video Game Companies refusing to make remakes of older games *Final Fantasy VII and Resident Evil 2*
- Politicians who blame video games for real life violence *Explain all the violence that occurred before video games existed then? World War II, the American Civil War, the JFK Assassination*
- Keyboards *The controllers are terrible, they have too many f***ing buttons and are impossible for me to master*
- PC games that don't let you use a regular controller *System Shock II*
- Wireless controllers *you keep losing them and have to dig around your room to find it but they at least don't get tangled up*
- Wired controllers *they get tangled up but you at least don't lose them since they are usually connected to the console*
- Development Hell *Star Wars Battlefront III*
- Game stores who place stickers all over the case or cartridge *GameStop or Oogie Games*
- Instruction manuals that can only be accessed from the user interface of the console *The Last of Us*
- Not allowing us to export game saves *Most PlayStation 3 games*

Can't make a second game save *Pokémon*
Can't skip cutscenes or conversations *Final Fantasy*

1) Region Locking - Totally Hate It!!!

2) PSV Motion Controls - Dislike it, makes gaming so difficult

3) Wii Motion Sensor Controls - Also dislike it, swinging the remote is such a bad idea

4) Terrible English Voice Acting - Still better than mute games

5) Mute localized games - Shining Tears, Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time

6) Game Saves on the PS3 that cannot be transferred without using PS+

7) YLOD (PS3), Red Line of Death (PS4)

8) Perfect Circle Scratch (XBox 360)

9) One PSN account per PSV is seriously wrong!

10) Selling pre-revised PS3 that has insufficient thermal paste in the stores

Going to keep it at that..

I can handle bad voice acting in games, gameplay matters more and you'll overlook the bad voice acting because of it *Resident Evil*

So you hate keyboards, motion controllers, wireless controllers, AND wired controllers
uh... how do you want to play your games exactly, with your mind?

A controller that senses it's not being used and will fly back right next to the console so it will be there when you play a different game.

I'll try to keep mine brief:

-DLCs
-PAAGGs
-Interactive Movies
-Franchises getting ruined
-Japanese franchises Westernized
-Games catering to the lowest common denominator
-DmC and Ninja Theory
-Crapcom
-FFXIII franchise

There are others, but these are the major ones.

Remember when games used to be good?
Proudly boycotting Capcom and DLCs.
#9vind3dPosted 11/30/2013 12:32:52 AM
Games that don't have enough save points. Games that have you restart an area when you die. Interestingly, FFXIII fails in neither of these two points. ^ ^

SE may have another FF hit on their hands with FFX/X-2 HD. Perhaps the biggest FF since, well, FFX. :p

i hate to break it to you, but in order to be japanese, you have to be born in japan.
no matter how much you claim you love some obscure asian game and hate anything western you will never be japanese.
