Crappy sequels to good games/sequels that are nothing like the game before it. Super Mario Bros. 2/Doki Doki Panic comes to mind. BUT considering how similar the japanese SMB2 is to the first game, maybe US gamers weren't screwed over as much as they think.

But the Japanese SMB2 is insanely tough.

Hmm, lets see...

-Snobby pro players in online games (Kill-steals or straight out kills you just for the lulz and calls you a noob) (Asking questions that you couldn't find in any guide you've looked at and called a noob for that as well for not knowing)
-MMO hackers *gives the evil eye to Maple Story*
-Sucky camera systems that result in you getting killed while trying to figure out where you are.
-The majority of movie based games
-RPGs with more cutscenes and dialogue than play (I wanted a fantasy type game not a movie)

Can't remember what I put in here already, but recently, it's been cheating morons pissing me off, in so many ways.

Note: This is with regards to CS 1.6

First and most obviously, it ruins the game. What's the point in playing against an opponent who knows where you are and can kill with zero effort? Well, in theory. Some of these idiots are awful even WITH cheats. I lost count the amount of noobs I've seen killed while they try and shoot someone through a wall with a submachine gun.

Second, the fact that no matter how blatant they are, they always deny it. That really annoys me for some reason. I mean really, when the whole server is saying that you cheat, and you KNOW you cheat, why bother saying "nooo i dont cheat u noob lol im pro". Ugh. At least myg0t just go for it and make it as ridiculous and blatant as possible and never deny it. It's almost funny watching them sometimes.

Third, why not go own some bots or something? Doing it against real players is just being an arsehole when all you obviously want to do is just rape everything in sight and have a cool score. I did it before actually. Pretty amusing.

Thank fuck I'm back on a server I have admin access to. BANNED YOU TWAT, HAHAHAHAH.

It's not exactly -in- the actual game, but people who are so shocked when they lose that they have to find any and every excuse to throw at you to convince themselves that they don't suck. (Saying you used "cheap tactics", etc.)

This nice Destructoid article illustrates a lot of the things that annoy about video games.

A choice quote:
If these pukes were good at the game like you, they wouldn't need to rely on such cheap tactics, would they? They'd be like you, running around with the shotgun, not having fun and despising everything everyone else is doing. The fact that they have killed you so many times is proof of how bad they are at playing.

Euphemisms!
When you can't move in first person shooter mode. (Here's looking at you, Metal Gear Solid 1-3...)

Oh man, my friend from school does that all the time. We battle online in SSBB and he'll lose, he gets off, I see my Wii has a message, and it's the same friend that I just managed to beat complaining about how I have horrible lag. Funny thing is, my friend over in the UK (The one that whines lives about 30 min away) says he wasn't having all that big a problem, the usual second or 2 delay, that's all.

Metroids.
The best/worst part of any Metroid game. Especially in the impact crater in Metroid Prime (the original)

"I'll just jump onto this toothy thing now..."

*SCREEEE!!!!!*

"OHFUCKITSONMYFACE!!! Didn't I just kill like 5 of you??" *falls into phazon and has to use powerbombs to kill that fucker* "Now to start climbing alllll over again."

Scariest. Enemies. Ever.

How about in MP3 when your in the last room before Dark Samus. When all the Phazon Metroid are following you around and endlessly spawning while you're trying to shoot that little thing inside the pod.

What is it with people on game sites bashing Spore? People are complaining the differen't game play elements doesn't have as much depth as they wanted, Spore is a casual game and was never advertised as being something a hardcore RTS fan would get something out of.

As Will Wright put it he took X% of Civ, X% of Diablo, X% of genre X and integrated them into Spore. Anyone complaining the RTS elements aren't as complex as RTS X haven't been keeping track of what Spore is intended to be.

Shitty music in games where the sound is incredibly important... that fucking annoying piece of shit mekon song in amplitude made me want to stab out my eardrums for example...

Or games with "realistic recoil" in general but especially when you have no idea at all just how much the recoil is messing with your aim.

Or really REALLY creepy people asking "zomg hai u wana yiff?" in SL... but I believe I've ranted about that before...

any flying enemy in any game evar

Cliffracers... the word that makes any TES player shudder

One of my griefs is abandoning FPS modes, i dont mean actual FPS games but having a optional "aim in first person" mode... for example in the Ratchet & Clank series you could always aim in first person and they even had a PLAY in FPS mode after finishing the game once but as far as i've seen you now only got "over the shoulder aim"
I also had a chance to play-test Red Faction 3 at the Games convention 2 weeks ago and seriously aiming in 3rd person just isnt as good as first person... i tried throwing bombs at a certian spot but they went EVERYWHERE but where i tried to aim
After seeing a machinima video where someone made GTA4 look like it was played from first person it just struck me again how cool having a first person mode is... just look at the facts, it improves free aim, easier to navigate through narrow areas, no tangling the camera in a bad angle where you cant see anything and not to mention it can give the game a totaly different feeling

So yea my call is, if you have free camera choice have a at least OPTIONAL FIRST PERSON MODE, so many games could profit from this... hell i dont know why this is dropped from games that even HAD it before

Personally things that annoy me in video games or the video game community.

*Halo 3 Fan-Boys who will mock Counter-Strike saying Halo 3 is the best FPS because it actually takes skill (It has targeting-assist though...)

*Counter-Strike Fan-Boys that will claim that however you killed them was not due to any gaming prowess but because they lagged, you used a "n00b" gun, you are hacking, or you're breaking server rules.

*RPG Games that have a horrible story line and shiny CG.

*Self-Proclaimed All around better-than you final fantasy fan boys/girls.
"Final Fantasy 8? Who cares, Sephiroth is such a bad-ass. Zidane? Who's that? You know Cloud (Insert obscure fact nobody cares about but themselves.)

*People on FPS's that will always must rant about how they killed you 5 minutes after they made said kill

*On MMO's escort quests... (The 30-Minute turle escort I hate to this day.)

*Catchy Music that I'm found listening to weeks after I beat the game

*"Innovative and New gameplay." That is basically "Hit X+R2 to rape enemy X. Hit Triangle and Square to Rape enemies X and Y."

* People who believe graphics take precedence over ANYTHING in a game. I mean, graphics are nice but they're not everything. I use to play games with really crappy 3D graphics but they were so fun I'd still play them to this day.

There's my list of gaming complains; I'm sorry if I come off as elitist or snobby that's not really the case. (Or I don't think I am...)

Today is Spore/STALKER: Clear Sky launch day in the UK.

They didn't arrive in the post today; so will arrive tomorrow. I went down to the shops and they were all stocking the two games, of course I couldn't buy any of them on the spot because the pre ordered copies are in the mail :mad:

Let's see...

1. Escort/Protecting missions - There are just some of those missions that just irk me. The one's you're escorting/protecting in the mission normally can be a complete "dumbtard" because of their Computer AI where it gets to the point you wonder if even succeeding in that mission is possible.

2. Random glitches - Now I know there are always going to be some glitches (they're inevitable), but some just drive me insane. Like in Ninja Gaiden II for the 360 - in Chapter 10 there's one where you're in this cave and there's acid surrounding you and you have to kill these giant worm monsters. Well, one time there was this one that would always pop up and you think you'd fire at it with explosive shuriken, but in reality that doesn't work. The only way you REALLY know that it's a glitch is that you walk right up to it and then pass it. Wasted ammo.

3. Lack of continues - I know some games are aiming for high difficulty, but there are some games out there where you spend a lot of time playing and once you die it's game over; you literally have the start from the very beginning. That's probably one of the worst feelings where you get closer and closer to the end of a game and then BOOM! Start over. ( I know some of these games have passwords and such, but there were those that didn't have that option.)

4. Save points being in the worst places - Big example: I remember playing Ninja Gaiden Black and I didn't realize that there was an air tank for you to be able to stay underwater for unlimited amount of time. I made it where I swam down this tunnel and found a save point so I save my game...BUT I couldn't make it back out of the water in time so I died. So if I had started up my game again I would still die anyway - meaning I messed up my game and have to start over. It wasn't till later I looked up information online and found out that there was a tank to begin with. Ugh. Horrible.

5. Cheap moves from AI - I think the biggest thing that annoys me in fighting games is where a computer opponent traps you somewhere to the point of where you can't get out because they're constantly attacking you with the same technique over and over again. That's the kind of thing that makes me want to throw my gaming controller across the room.

That's all I can think of from the top of my head. ^^;

Teh Emo Thundah!
Sequals that were solely fillers.
e.g. Metroid Prime 2, an excuse to introduce dark samus. Or Halo 2, *cough*arbiter*cough*

Samus already has a better doppelganger, SA-X!
Well, she did, anyway.

And the arbiter was unnecessary. Better than MC, but still unnecessary.
 

Zhyrersh the Sarcastic

Epitome of Sarcasm
MapleStory : Finding anyone for a party quest before you level up unable to do that actual quest. First group I have tried it with, they were fighting like ten-year-olds. And now, I am just waiting for two other friends to either get the game or level up to the appropriate level, which I feel is taking an eternity to even do.
