    Default 5 things in gaming you can't stand

    I know there are games, game characters, game companies, and so forth that everyone can't stand, so Im asking what are you top 5?
    here are mine
    1) Sony
    2) Electronic Arts
    3) Square - Enix merger
    4) Flooding the market with current fads ( right now seemingly War games )
    5) Movies - to - games

    1) First-person shooters
    2) EA Sports (Electronic Arts has had some incredible stuff in the past, so EA as a whole doesn't get trashed)
    3) The new "Crime/Murder Simulator" genre that is so huge
    4) Use of innate human reaction (ie-sex and blood) to sell a game
    5) Voice-over narration (samples are cool. Narration is usually embarrassing to listen to.)

    1. Acclaim (or, as Oobgarm refers to them as, Ack, Lame )
    2. THQ (which I think stands for Tart Hellraising Quijibos)
    3. The Madden series (I am biased against just about all football titles, maybe unfairly so, but dammit, I just can't like sports games that are too realistic.)
    4. Konami of America (still waiting for an American port of Gradius 2... tick tock tick tock)
    5. Appaloosa (you nearly killed Contra, you @#$%brains. )

    I'm sure I can think of an infinite number more. GAH!
    That's it! Next stop: The Junkyard. Population: You!

    What's so bad with Square and Enix merging?



    1. Microsoft
    2. Any "Cool" characters, i.e. Bubsy, Dynamite Headdy, James Pond
    3. Philips CD-i (I own one...)
    4. Annual sports games
    5. The isometric view being used improperly (SMRPG rocked it though)
    Egbert, I miss you...

    1. Mandatory Water Levels - Thanks Nintendo. x_x

    2. LJN on NES.

    3. Unbearably poor control. (Action 52, Dragon's Lair on NES, etc.)

    4. Series that are that should no longer be. (Tomb Raider)

    5. Series that no longer are but should still be. (Zombies Ate My Neighbors)

    1) Annual sports games that add nothing but a new roster
    2) Monthly fees for games I paid $50 to play
    3) Sequels that are worse than the original... if you're going to add to it, make it something worth adding!
    4) Sequels that do nothing but improve graphics slightly, and still sell millions
    5) Having to walk 10 minutes to get some damn key, then 10 minutes back to use it, knowing full well this will happen as soon as you can actually get to said key

    1 - First person ANYTHING. *grumble grumble*
    2 - Mission based games. Seems like every game company is following that fad...even Final Fantasy
    3 - Square fucking Enix's ingenious idea that Fate Linegod's name in Star Ocean Till the End of Time, should be changed to the spelling F-A-Y-T. I wanna choke the person who made that call.
    4 - Microsoft.
    5 - Acclaim. Their fucking rep. is annoying as piss. *shudders*
    RIP Kamino. 1984-2010. Yes, yes I do like nes...

    <+skaar> Maybe you should ask yourself "What is it about me that makes men not want to let me penetrate them?"

    1 gamefaqs lack of support and bias to old games and everything except FF7 (Jerks)
    2 using sex, profanity, and making a game more violent than the next, to sell a game instead of making it good and origina...sony!
    3 current generation's bias against 2d gaming.
    4 RARE not heeding to our call and not releasing a new battletoads game
    5 The "when you ask people why they love sony? Because...." Bias
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?

    1. Limited Saves, or only being able to save at one specific point (sometimes I don't have the time to play a two hour level and being able to save on the fly is helpful)

    2. Water levels

    3. 100 % completion ratings and only being able to do something at one specific point and never being able to go back to it again (ex. Metroid Prime and the scanning of certain things for the catalog)

    4. Hot Topic t-shirts and kids that think they know what Retro Gaming is

    5. Fanboys (just buy and play whatever....don't limit yourself to one company / system)
