One of the things I would sometimes see at least is that there seems to be at least some complains about the loading time of a game. Is the loading time of a game that annoying for some people? Like do they hate it when you have to wait a bunch of minutes (or possible seconds) just for a game to finish up loading?

When it's horrendously long, and happens every time you die, or just venture to far into another area, yeah, it's a massive pain in the ass.

I don't like loading screens after deaths, it already sucks that you died then you have to wait around for it to load. Completely discourages playing on any harder difficulties.

If it takes more time to load than it does to play the game then I hate it, the further the ratio is shifted towards time playing the game, the better.

I had heard that mod nation racers, pre patch, took forever to load and frequently. It ruined some peoples experience of the game at the time.

I've been playing Nier and while I can't say that the loading times are too long it does seems there are far too many.
When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

I don't really mind if the loading times are between levels or whatever, but I hate when gameplay just suddenly halts, and a loading bar pops up, and gameplay resumes once the game finishes loading.

Like Duke Nukem Forever, for instance, has some pretty long load times, but they're all between levels, so I don't mind. On the other hand, while on horseback in Oblivion, I constantly get halting load screens, and that annoys me more. Same thing with the first Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

Of course, especially when playing on harder difficulty or save-and-load scenarios (like Valkyria Chronicles). What's even worse is when you have to go to loading screens when you enter or visit a small room or space like in Dragon Age 2 or Mass Effect 2. Oh... my... goodness...
Our opinions may differ. The question is; do you respect my opinion as I do yours?
