Come on now, there's gotta be something you're sick of seeing get over used in videogame after videogame.
Something you wish they would just stop with already.

Personally, for one, it's most modern games limiting how many weapons you can cary at any one time to just two or three.
useualy being, one small weapon, such as a hand gun, and one or two bigger guns.
This I suspect to be not for realism, but to cover for their own laziness and unwillingness to make more available weapons for the game.

Pointless DRM doing nothing but causing hassle for people who bought the game. Why bother, it will always be cracked in the end.

Even GTA4's draconic SecuROM DRM got cracked in a short time, as did Assassins Creed 2's requirement to be online all the time. It's actually easier to pirate and install both than it is to buy them.

This is what you have to do to install it:

1. Insert disc
2. Install 'Rockstar Social Club' which is just a launcher that also does patching, it starts on Windows startup by default without asking and it must be open to launch the game.
3. Install Games for Windows Live, a completely useless piece of shit that again starts on startup by default and is required for the game to laucnh. You also can't play online without creating an account.
4. Start installing game
5. Spend 30 minutes figuring out why the fuck SecuROM isn't accepting your product key
6. Download patches, one of the recent ones exists solely to remove the 'Social Club' thing.

Then every time you want to play the game.

1. Insert disc (No-CD patches for retail versions don't work with mods thanks to SecuROM)
2. Start up Games for Windows Live: it's still necessary because :reasons:
3. Launch game
4. Wait 2 minutes for the developer screens to pass
5. Wait another 2 minutes for the long as shit loading times
6. Enjoy your extremely badly ported game that runs like complete arsegravy on every computer.

Rockstar can fuck off good and proper. What's annoying is that nearly all of this shit isn't necessary if you pirate it. Oh, and you still have to use Games for Windows Live even if you buy it through Steam. Why?

When done correctly it goes as
Part 1 introduced new ideas and is what makes the money
part 2 uses the money/experience to make a better game, which builds on part 1 but trys to be fresh.
part 3 does as before.

but what we have in the industry now.
part 1, include as little content as you can get away with, so you can use it as DLC or possibly use it for the sequel.
part 2, same as 1.
part 3, same as 2.

I think the reason why open world games became so popular, is becuase the makers see it as a easy and rather lazy way of extending game play time by having the player spend 50% of his time playing the game just getting from one mission or event to the next, as they travel across the same clone stamped terrain over and over.

There's casual as in 15 year old kids that rarely play video games if it's not with their friends in the room, who think it's "gay" to play video games alone, and who only do so as they use that time to yell at random people on xbox live.
(Today I was playing a game with a pop up that kept coming talking about how I can play with my friends online or some crap, I told my tv to fuck off and that I have no friends.)

Then there's the type of casual gamers that are little dumb kids or just old.
The type that don't know shit about video games and need helping hands for everything in games.
They're the ones with your cooking mama or other such interactive and overly simple games.

Oh and let us not forget the hipster type of casual gamers, the type that mostly just play iPhone games, and who show off their mario shit because it's so cool and nerdy, the ones who only play interactive console games at home which can be played with friends, like on the wii or the move or konnect.


I think we might need more terms to expand on "casual" since it has clear sub genres, which game developers treat very differently and market to differently.
for the frat kids they make call of duty clones
for the idiots you got all those simple puzzle games, and games that practically play themselves.
for the hipsters you got games like rock band, or whatever else required waving around a big plastic dildo in front of a tv.

I am completely and utterly fed up and pissed off as hell with pc games and their 360 controller crap.
I do not own a 360 controller, I do not want to buy a 360 controller.
There is nothing wrong with the usb game pad I currently own.
When the hell did it get this way? it's like every single dev forgot there are game pads out there that are not xboxbox controllers.
When a game says "press Y" how the crap am I supposed to know what button is 'Y'?

Earlier I tried playing some game, this menu says press B to exit/return, I have no idea what button is supposed to be B, but then I find it, I change the keybindings in the game's menu for my pad to something that works for me, and now that I exited the key binding (with their B button), that button isin't B anymore, but they still tell me to press B to exit/return after the binding has changed, but all the menu keys have also changed becuase of the binding, and because those ass hats only show the actual number of the keypad during binding, I have no clue whatsoever what button is what.
God I wish I could kick ever dev in the balls that does this crap.
the game recognises the numbers of each button on my pad, and the pad has those numbers on the buttons, yet they still show 360 buttons everywhere outside of the key binding sub menu.
Is Microsoft forcing pc game developers to do this in order to push their peace of crap game system?
seriously, fuck them, I'm sick of this.
>> No. 4824 [Edit]

Why are you playing with a controller on the PC? What game is it?


Also the blame is probably 100% on lazy shitty game devs

EDIT: Oh, I see what it is on your steam. Yeah car games are probably better with controllers. Given the game's low as shit score I can't really be surprised that they took shortcuts when it came to things like gamepad support

yeah racing/car games don't work well with keyboards I think.

The thing is though, it's not just low budget games, most games out there do this.
this was something that was actually added into the game dead island with an update, the game originally had a mouse icon before with the door smashing mechanic, but it then got switched for a 360 analog stick when I updated, and I wasn't even playing that game with a pad.

what's worse is when it's fully incorporated into the game play of a game.
When I was playing just cause 2 using a pad, They had minigame quicktime event things, requiring you to press something like 10 buttons in the order they show up as in the time limit.
Not as easy as it sounds when the buttons they show are buttons you don't have.
I tried modding that game just to replace those stupid icons, but was never able to find where those icons were saved in the game's data, they were pretty well hidden.

then there's crap like this, image related.
the hud and pick up items are based around xbox buttons, and the possession of those hud buttons ignores custom key binding.
They're not being lazy, they're doing this completely on purpose.

I just have a rough time with the XBox controller in general. I suppose I am too used to having a gamepad on the left and 2-4 buttons on the right.

I don't own a XBox, so whenever I play some game with my roommate and his friends, our skill levels (though I would normally be well above them... in terms of fighting games like Blazblue for instance) are more or less turned even because I can't get the commands off on that strange controller. They do it like it is no problem though.

Wth do they put the D-Pad on the bottom?

Really? I don't own an Xbox and have no intention of ever getting one (unless someone will be willing to give it to me for free) but I love the 360 controller. Actually, I'm pretty sure it's my favorite controller of all time*. Only two other controllers ever felt as comfortable for me - some Logitech pad (can't say which model, I borrowed it from a friend of mine a few times) and Wavebird. If the 360 used Wavebird's assymetrical button placement I would never use any other controller again.

First of all, this is pretty damn obvious. There's no reason to add 'if you ask me' or other crap like that every time you voice an opinion.

And even then, he actually did do that, most likely in an attempt not to anger people who are offended if everybody and their mom doesn't agree with them.

>just my opinion

I mean it doesn't get any more obvious than that. It's plain impossible.

Second, you can stop getting angry whenever someone mentions a gaming system that wasn't developed by Sony. You like them, we get it. Hey, I like them too. PS2 was by far the best paltform of the 6th gen. Doesn't mean I can't enjoy other companies' products and point out that while Dual Shock felt comfortable to me over 10 years ago it doesn't do the trick for me anymore. You are free to disagree of course but please, don't get angry again, I bet it's bad for your health to be under this much stress.

If anyone brings /v/ angry attitude over it's definitely you. ... Oh, I forgot. Just my opinion.

-Auto-Aim on consoles.
-Can't back up through dialog incase you missed what it said.
-No split screen multiplayer/co-op.
-On PC, no split screen multiplayer/co-op. This one sounds odd, but if it was a common thing we could just replace consoles with PC, and hook them up to our TVs, and it could do everything a console/DVDplayer/Cablebox/AudioSystem/etc does.
-In RPGs all the endless battles that offer no challenge. Sometimes I wish there was a mode where you could play without the battles and just enjoy the story.
-No more unlockables, I already know I am capable of getting them that is why they exist. Give me access to everything from the beginning and if I want a challenge I won't use it.
-Limiting options and game modes, You should be able to directly manipulate every single constant/variable in the game. ie: change gravity, # of teams, handicaps, # of enemies, enemy weapons, weather, AI level, objectives, etc, etc. Within reason though, as long as the system doesn't crash it is ok.
-Can't save after you die, forced to spend hours leveling up. This is usually how most Final Fantasys end (especially 3).

Which commentators do you find annoying?

Personally, I think humor is more important than professionalism in the world of game casting. I can forgive a lot of amateurish moves as long as there's humor and viewer connection. My favorites are day9, lagtv, artosis and tb. The rest that I'm familiar with just doesn't intrigue me on that same level. I think it's a matter of originality vs effort when it comes to my personal preferences on casters.

On topic:
I'm in general tired of the various trends modern consoles advocate. For example the menus and navigation there of in TESV. The controller limitations are ever so present, and I'd be cool with that if I was playing with a controller, but I'm not - I'm playing with a keyboard and mouse.

That's a point of annoyance that I feel hits me as of now. There's another point that I feel is just waiting to bite me, and that's social gaming. I'm so afraid of this trend and everything it manifests that I have to this day more or less effectively evaded it. Forced profile creations are bad, but now I know more or less what games to evade in order to free myself of these gaming profiles. Luckily for me, those games with their respective companies don't much appeal to me. If, however, this trend becomes the definite norm, it might just end up hurting me bad, and I'll be forced to compromise even greater on my gaming.

Lastly there's DRM, and if it weren't for game clients such as Steam, it would probably lead to me quitting on games alltogether. I don't buy physical copies of games unless I know it supports steamworks. I despise discs for a number of reasons, and threw away my DVD drive long ago just to force myself off of this terrible storage medium. My condolences to those stuck on slow internet connections.

When a game has a painfully awkward control scheme and theirs no option to change it.

I really think developers are trolling me when they do that.

Companies buying gaming franchises and running it to the ground.

RIP Command & Conquer and Westwood...

To be fair it is actually being made by Bioware group, so it is less likely to have romance plots and more likely to be just a huge heap of shit like RA3 and C&C4.

I think I'd prefer a Generals with gay romance subplots than another RA3 or C&C4

Why you hate casuals? Why are self-proclaimed [email protected] gamers so elitist?

See what happens when you don't try to increase your costumer base;

I'm so completely sick of westernization of game box art.
taking things that are nice and making them bleak dark gritty or just hiding it as the case is with many games, pisses me right off.
They're sending a clear message that you should be ashamed to buy something nice/cute/happy
good example of this would be all the Kirby covers they use and keep the same except for making him look pissed off in the American versions.
This shit is a complete insult to western gamers and needs to stop already.

and for what? so some little bastered who's ashamed of his hobby can pretend to be buying something socially acceptable at the cost of the rest of us?
or is it because they think most Americans are retarded and wont buy a game that doesn't have tits and guns on the cover?

The god damn Ico art is what irritates me the most out of all of those. The original is so damn beautiful and appealing, as opposed to the American version which is, frankly, hideous.

I don't like the growing trend of not making the music of the games playable outside the game itself, especially on consoles. I mean, I still listen to music from games like Morrowind regularly, and I miss the days when I could simply pop a game CD into my CD player and listen to the soundtracks of games like WipeOut and Rise 2:

Can't do that with my PS3 games, at most they might offer the tracks on iTunes or something.

Overpowered final bosses, or final bosses that are unbeatable without a certain set of skills/equipment/resistances. This has happened in a lot of JRPGs I've played lately.

I just want to continue with the story, I want to see the ending. But no, I have to drop everything and go grind somewhere. Completely ruins the build-up to the final boss and ending.
>> No. 5689 [Edit]
>>5688

I would be angrier to find out the final boss was some kind of wimp whom I managed to one shot.

Then again I rarely finish any games, once I get my fill I just stop playing (instead of forcing myself to finish it just for the sake of it even though I got past my 'saturation' point long ago).

I have no problem with challenging final bosses, e.g. Luciferfrom SMT3:Nocturne. I'm talking about bosses that you're required to grind for, because no amount of strategy using what you have when you reach the boss will work.
