In your opinion, what are the worst things about a video game / video gaming?


I'm about to start a new series on YouTube called "Greasy Gripes", a gaming equivilant to James Rolfe's "You know what's Bulls**t?". In this series, I'll be going on about my pet peeves in video games such as dire control, jump scares, small subtitles, checkpoints, passwords, DPS meters and many more minor irritations just for a laugh. My question to you is, what features of video games annoy you, and could you give examples of games with them?

    Loads of great points here, nearly all of which will see a script for a Greasy Gripes episode! I hope to start this on the weekend, and have five ready to be filmed so far! ^^

    Some very nice points, all of which I agree with. Out of all of them, the former two for me are the worst. I hate timed missions, especially when you've plenty of time left over and wonder what all the stress was about. Thanks again! ^^

    I hate this too, especially getting content online. I don't see why it can't be on disc as an alternative, even though I'm heavily outspoken on the overuse of packaging nowadays.

    I could easily do a video on this, because I could compare being a drone to having fun, i.e comparing quest/reputation systems of WoW to say, Fallout. But I totally agree with you there and this is something I'd like to talk about. Thankies! ^^

    A very common problem in the ~NES generation of video games, most notably in adventure games like Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania. I feel your pain ^^

    Indeed. Publishers fail to see the big picture by clogging the market with games that don't matter, and become genres we'll never want to come back to. Sooner or later, there will be no money left from any video game genre. It has happened before :(

    I like the sight of virtually unbeatable games, but if there isn't a reward in sight that's worth it, it just makes the experience worse ^^
