Biggest Gripe about Games

Postby User removed » 04 Mar 2006, 20:37

Right now, I'm taking a break from Destroy All Humans

It's one of those games where you can "buy" upgades to your character. I need an upgrade for this next level, but I don't have enough "DNA" which is like cash. So I've spent hours running the same missions over and over again to get enough for the upgrade. It's like work. It's Saturday and instead of working on a project at work, I'm doing repetative activities for hours to "buy" a virtual something. Come on developers, I bouth this game to be fun, not to put my nose to the grindstone.

Anybody else? What bugs you about games?

Games which claim to have open and vast whith the potential to explore, but turn out to be narrow and linear.

Also short games.

Health packs on top of or under crates.

Yes i know that feeling repeatedly trying to do something due to a little computer bug etc.., you feel like throwing the pad at the wall again and again. And again and again....................

Pro evo grates me at times in the master league.

I hate it when you complete a game and you unlock a 'harder' difficulty level.
If I've spent ages completing a game, why the f*ck would I want to go through it again and get stressed out more?

To be a better gamer? Depends how good the game is and what it is.

Got to agree with you there.

i dont like games that are simply too hard. I tend to set every game at "normal" difficulty and consider myself to be about an average gamer skills wise but some games really take the mick. I think the Rogue Leader games on gamecube could be very tricky at times (to get the gold medals). Ninja Gaiden Black tests my patience too. The thing is I have limited spare time so I dont want to keep replaying the same levels or bosses.

When a good game comes out and every fanboy bitches about it not being good enough.

Example: Wind Waker.

But then, Wind Waker did suck in many, many ways :P

It was also good in many ways too...

In the case of Max Payne, so I can have more of a challenge, and so I can play it again...

Games that could have been so good but were ruined by “you know what" eg;

Deus Ex: Invisible War and Brothers in Arms.

Games which claim to have a load of content but just make you unlock rubbish like pictures or silly codes or another character. They are usually stupidly short as a result. The only series I will let off for this crime are the Max Payne games (and even then it's only a new difficulty).

Average games in their genre that somehow gain a huge following and are made out to be the best example of what they are, eg;

Halo/Halo 2 (it still makes me laugh when people say it was innovative at the time) and Counterstrike (there were much better multiplayer games around at the time and there sure as hell are better games out now).
Soldiers, when I give the command to fire, fire straight at my heart. Wait for the order. It will be my last. I have fought a hundred battles for France, and not one against her... Soldiers Fire!

Damn - DX2-IW flashbacks. Joy turning into sadness, it's happening again.


Personally for me it's games that have art over fun (and are also too short, maybe it's fine when you get given the games as reviewer but 30 quid for 6 hours does not make Andy happy), and games affected by 'you know what'.
