To start things off, I hate the fact that when playing online, people need to cheat to go after achievements. one reason I stopped playing online in any games.

Guess i should have said cheating to make them feel they are the better player (mostly talking about sports games).

Price for me too. And, while this isn't always an issue, lack of content in games.

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I hate that some developers are skimping on their single player game and focusing too much on online multiplayer. Online in general, really, even DLC. I'd rather go buy a disc.

I agree. You don't get to hear much about campaign of the big franchises (GoW, COD e.t.c) when they are at pre-release stage... Although saying that COD4 has one of the best single player campaign's I think.

Seconded on bOnEs about the DLC. The one that's pissed me off the most recently is Gears of War 2's 'hidden chapter'. They actually admitted to taking it out of the original game, then releasing it with a load of multiplayer maps for like $15.

Then there are the community-based games that hype up their multiplayer, and then start splitting everyone up by releasing packs of three maps for $10 each.

When will people learn that we are just getting ripped off and plain refuse to buy these things? If developers are going to do premium DLC, do it the Rockstar way and make it an expansion pack, not a shitty little overpriced bolt-on.


EDIT: this isn't an Asylum topic. Moving...

lol, it was really funny with one of the games i played earlier this year... godfather II... the day the game went on sale, a DLC map pack hit the PS store for $10 laugh.gif... plus, a maxed out character was $5 and unlocking all weapons was $5 too... you could buy all of this for $15 but who would do that when the game was ridiculously easy anyways??... fun but, very easy...

still, charging more for extras that should be free is my biggest pet-peeve of this generation... and little big planet really really pisses me off with this too... love the game, i think everyone should at least play it once but, they charge you for EVERYTHING in the store... want a new character? $3... want new stickers? $5... want new materials and objects? $10...

fuck that shit...

The fact that no matter how realistic games get, there's always something in you that subconsciously knows it isn't real and tries to pick out every tiny flaw in animation or physical anomalies.

The insanely retardedly hard parts where you sit and try and try and try and try and try and try and try, yet you still can't beat it.

Another thing I hate is when that happens and you end up smashing your controller.

Dude, yes. Nowadays I only play on the easiest difficulty, so the last game that happened to me on was Spiderman 3 like two years ago. Happened to me BILLIONS of times on my GameBoy when I was a wee little boy. I threw that shit HARD too!

I hate those games where, uhh.. OK, an example works better. You know in Odins Sphere, where you have to guess who the noble is to defeat that one boss? And to know which character is a noble, either you had to play and pay attention for every single mind warping second, or just make a random fucking guess. I hate those games that require you have some sort of weird telepathic link to the level designer.

A general lack of story. I've noticed I haven't seen really good plot since Silent Hill 1 + 2 + 3. Stuff with meaning, themes, backstories, side characters. GTA 4 does have a high quality script but many people don't recognize that part. I just notice other games I've tried have flat scripts.
