Things You Don't Like in Games
« on: September 25, 2014 »
This is where you discuss what aspects you don't like or are not fond of in games. If you have any, post them under this topic. It can also be things you don't like particularly in levels or in stories. I would like to know. ::) :luigi: :hammerbro: :yoshi:

I've always hated auto-scrolling levels in platformer games. They're so annoying. Especially if you lose a life if you're not too fast. :-D

How every big name game today cares more about cinematics and political messages rather than gameplay. Thank you SJW Movement.

Probably because they want to impress us fans with highly advanced graphics & be dwelled into the story. I understand where you're coming from. Gameplay is blatantly the most important aspect of a video game, hence "game"play. Flavor-text can be a bit redundant when you already know the lessons in hand.

I have fine about gameplay anything in games expect...

1.Bugs and Glitches in games
actually every games have one or more glitches, but i don't like about some bug and glitches that easy to find and make me free lost things something that i don't want lost (example rare items or save data).

2.Bad luck repeatedly or more luck gameplay than skills
I'm fine about bad luck but if found more repeatedly that make me something lost encourage and efforts use my skills (so sad, that unjustified).  :'(

Water levels.

Also, puzzles. Puzzles are a big one.

Enemies, particularly in RPG bosses with no health bars-(This is primarily why I stopped playing the Mario & Luigi series-For me, this is like having a large number of blank puzzle pieces without a picture or piece count-Both can go on forever and ever with no end in sight; also imagine this scenario: Times are desperate and you can't take much more; should you use your strongest attack with that hard-to-obtain item or risk conserving  it by using a weaker attack that may or may not do the job-You don't know)

Bosses that restore their health-(A spin-off of the former, the power your partner's heroic sacrifice or minutes of work suddenly wasted, along with all of your Power Points you had used)

LOADING...-That one's pretty self-explanatory.

Permanently missable events and items-(You know those moments when you're still haunted by not getting that one item because you didn't know about it and now the only way to get it is resetting your game? Yeah, those. I'm also covering when you can't go back and replay levels or see cutscenes that you liked without having to make a separate file)

Insanely hard "just so it can be hard" difficulty/Hard mode-(This one is just developers being mean; I understand the central component of challenge, but some companies just seem to want players to suffer and that's wrong; at least make it so someone with average gaming skills can make it through the story or give those less skilled an "Easy Mode", so they can play too. I also just don't like getting angryor seeing other people get angry)

Hard/Hero Mode-(After you beat a game, sometimes a "Hard Mode" with nothing that unique or with anything to work towards, isn't worth it for some people; Plus, imagine how much better games like the already excellent A Link Between Worlds would be if that effort had been put into the first quest.)

Good Game, Terrible Plot/Plot Points/Rosters...-(On a personal level, this ruined the otherwise great Super Paper Mario, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Yoshi's Island, and the first three Mario & Luigi games. Did we really have to recover two Cobalt Star parts we lost just because the Bros. got dizzy, or running endlessly on a hamster wheel generator, or the introduction of baby characters that plague spin-offs to this day and the idea that Mario and Luigi couldn't have survived witnout the Yoshis and were carried by a clumsy stork, and a RETCON to boot? You get the idea.)

Incredibly long levels/fights with no checkpoints-(Like bosses that regenerate health and permanently missable events, this one is a matter of the time you invested and all of that ending up to mean nothing.)

"Just for the sake of it" Adult Content-Blood, Needless sexuality, swearing, killing for fun, etc.

Mysoginy, Racism, Religious intolerance, Homophobia, stereotyping, etc.-(As a female, this one's personal and hard-hitting; also, minorities aren't the nicest people in the world; I mean, is it just me, or do Black people in particular seem to be demonized all the time, in media and in real life? I'm looking at YOU, Barret...People of all genders and ethnicities need to be treated respectfully.)
"At last, the promise has been made..." and then some. :ssb4cloud:

So what you're saying is all game developers are sadistic people who just want the people to play their game to suffer.

Okay.

I don't like co-operation only when my "ally" is being a complete retard and/or trying to make everyone lose.

I mean, it's fun - but we just don't get anywhere like that. :P

I hate co-operating with com players. They're so stupid. I almost always lose in Bowser Jr. mimigames in Mario Paty 9.  >:(

I also hate things that are unlogic. I don't remember any of these now, but I remember there are some.  :P

@EDIT: Now I remember! Talking signs in SMG! Always when you are "reading" them, they're saying "Hey!".
