    Personally, I hate when you have to wait a ridicolous amount of time to pass the mission, like in Warcraft III when you need to wait 30 mins for Uther to come or in CoD4 when you're waiting 20 mins for the helicopter to pick you and MacMillan up .

    What Really Gets me going is that great games have horrible multi player.
    Take Unreal 2 no MP what so ever,and even if there is it's terrible,just run and shoot,nothing like strategy or other stuff like that.
    For me Team fortress is the best,it's not just equals running in circles,there every one has some advantage...

    Edit 4 new threads by the time I typed this,wow

    Did you miss the whole 'Pripyat - Past' segment of CoD4? The question we should be asking is 'what the hell are YOU smoking?'

    Dumbass.

    When difficulty is added by making things unfairly hard, like a boss that can kill you in one shot, can shoot 100 ways at once and their only weakspot is about a cm in size on their back. Or jumps that need blind luck to achieve.

    I'd have to say badly thought out stuff, e.g. the alternate camera angle in blaster master blasting again. that meant you couldn't see most of the jumps.also, annoying-ass unskippable tutorials and unbeatable (pretty much) bosses, e.g. mike tyson.

    Escort missions which are badly designed, wait until all enemys are killed. Do this and I'll wait here.

    "Sorry, but I took it"

    Best escort mission i had was in STALKER: ShoC, the scientist you take to Yantar, he leads you where you need to go AND he fires on them too, places where you hide out have decent cover to fire from as well.

    When I can't just quit to Desktop from the game. No, they have to throw me back to the fancy Menu screen which has a loading screen of it's own, and there you select to quit.
    The worst example is Assasins Creed, where you quit, then get to the animus screen, then get to the menu before you are able to see your desktop again.

    Agree x1000. I was like "holy shit what the fuck" when I first tried to exit Ass Creed.

    You have to exit the simulation, get out of the Animus, exit to main menu, log into your profile, then exit the game. WTF

    Also every game should have alt-tab support. I'd really want Source to have this.

    Escort Missions and quicktime events that are executed badly.

    Example of bad quicktime events:
    Prince of Persia, the new one, overuses quicktime events. As in, every combat there's at least one. This wouldn't be so bad if they didn't randomly change what key you had to press every time, however even then you wouldn't make it first time as all it shows is a little coloured symbol. I'm sorry, but I don't want to have to look at that symbol, figure out which one it is, then press the corresponding key all in half a second, where if I press the wrong button the enemy gets all their health back.

    Oh and thanks for colouring the symbols Ubisoft. ON THE PC VERSION. WHERE THERE ARE NO COLOURED BUTTONS THAT ARE CONSISTENT.

    Good Quicktime events:
    Wanted: Weapons of Fate. Not that good a game, however the quicktime events are done superbly, where they only feature one button, you're given plenty of warning before they pop up, you have plenty of time to do them and you can actually avoid seeing them if you kill the enemy before he reaches you.

    As for escort missions, they ruined the ending of Bioshock with that shit.

    Timers, Escort missions, Instant kill jumping puzzles. Save points, Monotony (lookin' at you WoW), Arbitrary experience gains, Forced socialization with pubbie randoms, any form of invincibility power up that last longer than 10 seconds, Asians, Terrible bullet magnet vehicles, Kids, Characters that are forcibly designed to be relateable but end up failing, "loose all your stuff" missions, Teabagging, bad voice acting, RTS games where the AI likes to make up new and interesting paths to an objective just to piss you off, easy games, taunting, any game with vampires, flat out cliches, horror games that fail at being scary, games designed to appeal to a strange idea of "mainstream" (aka gangstas and hoes and shit yo motherfucka)

    It depends on what type of game, really. FPS? When the AI can see you through 30 feet of brush and cover. Prone. (FarCry 2 and ArmA 2).

    RPG? It's already been said, but "GO KILL 30 X WHILE THEY SUBSEQUENTLY DROP Y. GET 15 Y AND BRING IT BACK TO ME BECAUSE I WANT Y FOR OBSCURE Z REASON AND I CAN'T DO IT MYSELF."

    Racing? Like in GRID, when the AI is horrendous. I don't think the AI is supposed to be that bad in any racing game. Being forced into a wall trying to pass up an AI driver is so annoying.

    Games where I can't just save the god damn game. I have to find a "special" platform to save. Why can't I just hit Esc and press "save" and then load up in the same spot.

    Checkpoints aren't that bad as long as they are not to far apart .

    I don't see why people hate these parts. If the AI partner (most likely Alyx) did everything, there would be no game.

    Run a tank into the artillery. The artillery explodes and and counts as a suicide for whoever's inside of it.
