    Angry Things that bug you in games

    So I've been playing though The Last of Us (which is one of my favourite games on the PS3) but there are things about it that bug the hell out of me, for instance, has anyone noticed how loud the footsteps are... I mean I would be walking along and all I hear is thud thud thud, unless I am in crouch mode, which means going along at a much slower pace.

    So I turn to you guys to see if you have any pet hates like this, and for those of you who didn't notice how ridiculously loud the footsteps were before and do now because I posted this... sorry >.<

    Nothing really like that, but I do get mad when games have more story than gameplay (except in certain cases, like RPGs). Last of Us being one of those games.
    Xenogears is the tragic story of how your whole life can take a crappy turn, just because you happened to see a lady in a wedding dress before her wedding.

    Loading screens.

    smurfing loading screens.

    smurfING GODDAMN LOADING SCREENS, JEEZUS

    I have difficulty with games beyond the PSX era because of this. It's just sloppy game making, sloppy, sloppy sloppy.

    At least the makers of the first Tekken game put a game on their loading screen. T_T Where are ya on that, game industry!?

    God damn simpletons.

    Namco has a patent running for loading screen minigames, that's why.

    When someone is like "follow me" but are a million times slower than you. Or even "Kay I'll meet you there" says the NPC, who just stands there or walks slowly. Despite that they will ALWAYS ARRIVE BEFORE YOU. You can teleport, they will be there first. No clue why this bugs me so much but it does

    I prefer when games have an easy setting, but I can forgive if they don't so long as the game isn't impossible. What I do hate is when they say its easy and it isn't. I shouldn't be getting my butt handed to me by anyone on easy mode except maybe a few final bosses. I shouldn't have to level grind for several hours on easy mode

    Also games that don't give you enough money to do anything with

    Patent expires next year, I hear tell.

    Also, I'm not a big fan of timed underwater escort missions.

    Armor for female characters. It's so bad. A metal boob breast plate would KILL YOU. It would direct a sword into your heart. It's so stupid. It looks stupid. I'm killing dragons and monsters and orcs and trout. Give my female characters decent armor. If a game does this, I like it far more. I know it's silly to worry about the aesthetics like that but seriously, it's so impractical. Some games have blood effects. I always think that half the blood isn't from my enemies but from myself because of my own horrible wardrobe choice.

    I'm OK with loading screens so long as they give you something to do, like when you go through a time worm hole thing in XIII-2 or something to read (XIII) if not I just whip out whatever book I am reading for a minute or two.

    A million times this, in MMO's its kinda understandable (in case of lag) but in an offline game there is no excuse.

    The inability to step over very tiny barriers when obviously it would be a massive shortcut.

    Yeah, you get to the end and just stare back at them in the hallway behind you, waiting. And waiting. And waiting. ._.

    This annoys me to absolutely NO end. It STILL pisses me off when I see Kayle in League of Legends now; she used to have a chestplate, but then they stuck a goddamn boob plate on her instead because, hey, let's sell this character's sex more than her character! Same thing with Lux. And Leona.

    As for my contribution to the thread, probably the thing that annoys me the most in gaming is when I am handed a character who's ability to actually survive in the world I SEVERELY question. I'm not the brightest guy by any stretch, but if you are doing things that make me feel intelligent then something is wrong with you and I instantly and absolutely hate you. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaate you.

    And because these characters show up the most in RPGs, I know I'm stuck with them.

    For hours.

    Sometimes I leave people dead in my party as an act of futile defiance, hoping the game will apologize to me and remove them so I can get back to enjoying the game again.
    I also find myself lost in caves for hours on end, trying to hide from the plot that inevitably circles around these characters I hate so.

    Oh here's another one. When an enemy is down to like 5% HP but their evasion raises like 100x, making it impossible to kill them in that round Agarest War

    I third the poor armor designs for women. Hello, do you see Joan of Arc over here with barely anything protecting her? I didn't think so. Jesus Christ.

    Another thing that bugs me is when there's a platform or something you can see your character able to jump over, but for whatever reason the game doesn't let you get up there. It's just like "No, you're not getting up there. Smurf you!"

    I was playing Borderlands 2 for the first time with friends last night and that happened to me soooo many times. I just wanted all the best sniper spots. T -T

    I thought of another one, when you are on an escort quest, get half way through (and he conveniently needs to be spoken again) to advance through the next stage and you forget and run off ahead killing everything between you and the next check point and stand there... like a lemon, until you remember you need to speak with him to get him to move his ass *glass at Thrall*
