little 5-12 year old kids on my FPS -.- what kind of parent is buying these little cocky SOBs these games?!
oh and 40 year olds on my games that think there MLG just because theyve played the game since its release befor i was born -.- no one cares, your a piece of crap that needs to just go back to your lonely life and accept that no one likes you.
oh and just because i have to say it......2 things....1, people that are on xboxlive that dont have mics or that have them and dont use them, if you dont have one go get one if you have one the least you can do is use it to say hi or tell me theres a elite right behind me about to bash my brains in...2, people that play music over there mic thinking its "cool", you know what? its not cool matter of fact everyone wants to either A, kill you right now and burn down your house, or B, they want to slice your voice box out of your neck and THEN kill you for making us all suffer.

I like it when people play music with a program on Css. Provided the music player in question stops when asked and takes music suggestions.

Also I third sequels.

YES! Though I'd have to say, if the sequel pushes the series in new directions gameplay wise, then its ok. Rehashes of moar of the same should be limited to cheap DLC

Not true. Just look at Sonic. everyone complains about how the new ones are bad because they've gone so far away from the originals.

^There are a far multitude of reasons why Sonic fans complain and why Sonic is the way it is.

The fans all want something different - I hear fans whining because it's not LIKE another sonic game....and then other fans complaining that it IS like the Genesis Sonic games. I hear fans whining about there being too many characters and then I see others whining that they need to bring back the retired chars like NAck the Weasel. I see sonic fans whining because they try to make stories then other sonic fans whining cause they DON'T attempt to make a story with some games.


In the end though, the victor is none other than Sega - as no matter how much the sonic fans bitch and moan and complain, just about all of the sonic fans keep on coming back. Or at least enough to buy enough of the games for them to make profits. I mean, look at Shadow the Hedgehog - considered among the worst games of all time, and yet I see that on the Greatest Hits. What's that doing on the "GREATEST Hits" next to much better received games like say Shadow of the Colossus? simple - they're based off of sales, not receptions. If they were, we probably would actually see a rerelease of some games like Valkyrie Profile Simeria that actually WERE well-received but nobody bought.

I hate how everyone hates 2D, I mean c'mon practically every GOOD game started in 2D, and think about it, even if the recent hand-held Sonic games are better than their 3D counterparts (admittedly that's not saying much...) And I ask the people who've played New Super Mario Bros. and Galaxy, what one is better?

Game's that follow some shy charecter with a heart of gold as he goes on a valiant adventure to save the world and get the girl. That story got old after the 2nd time I saw it.

On the other sides of the spectrum....

-Gordon Freeman being revered as a "Good character" despite that he has JUST as much flavour as a plain rice cake in a pretty package. You think he may be an actual CHARACTER by looking at him, for having a face and a name unlike almost every other FPS character...but when you open that package, inside you see just another Rice Cake. Exact same thing as that one in the green package you've been eating for years. Oh you know who I'm talking about...Link. wonder why it's original when Gordon Freeman is a sock-puppet who never talks yet the characters act like he speaks to them yet not original when an RPG does that...it's a ripoff. Gordon Freeman has as much personality as my sister's Barbie dolls. You can dress them however you want, but they still have the same "create your own" personality. he's not original...he's just another Link, who in fact is of Dragon quest and Adventure Heritage.

I like them both equally, New Super Mario Bros. gives me that old school fix when I want/need it, Mario Galaxy just looks really great and is fun to play, especially on that cookie level when the BGM is Super Mario Bros. 3 <3

I find it interesting that, sans Handheld games (Which are slowly becoming 3D), Japan seems to be the only non-freeware game developers that actually still acknowledge that 2D can be just as good as 3D. Anyone remember those old point and click adventure games in the 90's like Curse of Monkey Island, King's Quest VII, and Toonstruck that featured cutscenes that actually looked like they could be animated? And on top of hand-painted backgrounds that had their own style. 2D has a specific fluidity that 3D can't match. Heck would Final Fantasy VI have worked if it were 3D? It'd have to be done VERY VERY well in order for it to not look just like Final Fantasy XII and lose all the artstyle that made it stand out in teh first place. 3D doesn't always look better, I'd rather see something that looks like a very well put together 2D graphics with colourful sprites that give the element of a fantasy world than a dull 3D game that's trying to be colourful but only results in eye-searing combinations that looks kind of like it was made by a bunch of ameteur programmers in Second Life.

...Say that's what's missing with style! COLOUR! Look at the FPS games and our 3D games - there's no colour! Everything's trying to be "Realistic" but apparently that means that there are little to no colours inside the game, while at the same time vomiting insane amounts of Bloom. Remember when everyone was talking about how Shadow of the colossus was so realistic? I didn't think so - I thought the people walked into the world wearing several pairs of sunglasses over their eyes. And Yahtzee even has stated that they only come in a few colours.

And look at what the culture has to say about colour..."Ghey". An artstyle that works has just as much character as some realistic looking character made with no reference. Heck, that's what makes people like Team Fortress 2, that it actually uses an artstyle.

Another PERFECT example. Odin Sphere. That game has the best looking 2D sprites I've ever seen. Anyone remember those old paper dolls/puppets we'd have to make for arts and crafts time during school where the joints where held together by fasteners? The sprites are kinda like that, except they look WAAAAAAAAAAAY better.

I don't think I've heard anyone using the word realistic when talking about that game, more that it's beautiful and stuff =3

- When one of my guildies leaves his computer on, so his 11 year old cousin gets on Vent and spams the same thing over and over "Hey y'all" "I'm Jessica Simpson, y'all"... *facepalm* (not really all that relevant, but *shrug*)
- Slow, powerful fighters (I much prefer faster, less powerful characters)
- Grinding.

Plenty of crap pisses me off.

A lack of proper music; This is one thing I hate about Final Fantasy and some other games, you're in some huge, dark cave, filled with enormous monsters that will rip you to shreds just by looking at you, with a boss that'll tear you the hell up, yet there's this happy happy "YAY RAINBOWS AND FARTING PUPPIES!" piece of filth tune playing in the background, what the hell? It makes no sense whatsoever.

Enemies who constantly shoot when you have nothing but swords and limited spells; This was something that annoyed me terribly in Drakengard, there would be a constant amount of archers who do nothing but back up and shoot when you're busy trying to kill someone else, and when you go to kill them, there was always another two spread out shooting at you, pausing you only to get shot again afterwards.

Constant appearing of cars; this happens to me a lot when I'm playing GTA, cars usually just act normal and fine when I'm doing nothing but speeding around the area, but the very moment I have to keep a car in tact for a mission or I have to get to some place in time, every damn car the game can process appears just to slam into mine and box me in, good grief it's annoying trying to keep a car clean of dents when there are nine cars barreling down the intersection and slamming into the hugest pile up ever.

A lack of just fighting modes; One thing I love to do in fighting games is to just constantly fight over and over and over again, so far the only game I've ever played that has something that fills that need is Bloody Roar 4, where you pick your character, pick your opponent and stage, and then just fight battle after battle after battle over and over again, sadly other games lack something like that where there's no waiting after a battle, it just keeps going on and on.

Attempts at being offensive; I personally love GTA, the first three adaptions were great, but when Vice City came along Rockstar just went out with "People find us offensive anyway, LET'S USE THIS AS A GIMMICK!" and just forced it, which just made the games lose their appeal and atmosphere instead of it just being a game meant to be fun that just happened to of caught a lot of flak.

Unlucky random battles; One thing that always annoyed me with Final Fantasy was how whenever I wanted to get into a random battle, I'd have to run around in circles for minutes at a time waiting for one to finally appear, yet whenever I'm on deaths door and trying to get a save point, bam, a random battle after every other step, instead of when I actually need to fight.

Block whores; Another thing that annoys me with fighting games is how ridiculous the AI gets with blocking, Soulcalibur III is a prime example of this, I can kill off the first two opponents just fine in arcade mode, yet every battle afterwards the opponent spends 90% of the time in battle blocking, so I wait there for them to attack so I can counter, and they just stand there, try attacking again and they just block yet again. Same reason why I despise Ryu from Street Fighter, that's all the AI ever does with him is a nonstop block.

Love cannot save the world; Finally one last thing I hate about a lot of games (Mostly FF again) is how every damn thing is revolved around 'love', "THIS IS MY STORY" "I'm in love with you..." "IF WE GOT MARRIED WHO WOULD BE THE MAN?!" "I want to be in love... Waaaah..." "WAAAAAH...", no, shut up, no one cares if after the credits roll your trailer's going to be rocking back and forth, shut up and just, kill somebody already, damn.

In most RPGs, there's generally some mysterious ally who helps you out, but refuses to tell you anything that's going on (even if it could have made things a lot easier) purely because they "didn't want to involve you".

Now, I can understand hiding stuff from the main protagonist until they're far enough in the plot to understand it. After all, some pretty surreal stuff tends to happen in RPGs, so it makes sense your character would need a while to take in a rapidly changing world around them to understand the news, but when the reasoning is purely that they don't want your main protagonist involved, be it because they want to handle it on their own or they're concerned for the protagonist's safety, it bothers me.

Crysis Mod.

Quotes from the forum I found it.

Are those pics resized? Because they're kinda blurry.
Needs some flavor to it, maybe some color or something.
its too clean.. the walls are all the same colour..
It is nice.

But it looks empty and all pictures are blurry.
Well, I don't find it so so amazing.

I don't like the appearence of some textures and I can see texture patterns. I also don't like too much how the lighting is going on.
IT doesn't really look that good.
not very impressive
God damn graphics whores, if this isn't good enough then what is?

What pisses me off? Arcade ports that don't have infinite continues. Simply cause usually arcade games are just "cleaned up" for consoles and nothing is done to rebalance the difficulty, So those wonderful parts that are made just to suck the cash out of your pockets are just as hard but you can't continue as many times.
 
I hate when ...if your a newb at a game...and a pro comes around and kills you several times just for frags.. x.x..ugh...Annoying....Or if the person is persistant..and your trying to heal and you can't and you die.. ..and they have like 1 hp left..and you can't seem to hit them x.x

I hate that, especially in Pokemon games. You just need one more hit to KO a gym leader or someone...and miss, even on a low-level, high-accuracy move.

This, plus games that claim to be sequels but change so much it might as well be a completely differen't game; making the claim that it is a sequel pointless to fans.

*sighs* i have one particular example of this in mind right now (and no, it's not oblivion for once)

Not sure if these have been mentioned before:
-DDR-minigames, press the buttons on screen the right moment... those are just annoying and dont really add fun
-Unskipable sequences (usually right before high fail potential missions, difficult boss fights, ect...)
-Escort/Defend missions instead of tutorials
-Unconfigurable/locked controlls
-Unchangeable options (like motion blur, mouse acceleration...)
-races in NONE RACING BASED GAMES
-Overly complicated controls ( artificial Mouse Lag in Aquanox, Joystick-Helicopter-Control with your Mouse like GTA San Andreas, Battlefield, Quake Terretory Wars )
-"please insert disc to play" (yes that IS annoying)

YES! Yes it is, especially when you know it doesn't read the disk much if at all and using your CD drive sucks up a lot of your laptop's battery power. (Hey, So I like brutalizing fictional people in horribly grotesque ways in public places...)

And battery power getting dangerously low when you're not at a good quitting place is lame...

That and if you get a free game on a magazin disc... why the HELL would you need the disc in order to play a game you got for FREE anyway? (happend to me with Atlantis 3, my brother got it free on a mag-disc but cant play without it)

-"No, mate, since you're the boob, and here's the trap! *sticks Slag on a stick into Darkwater's body, also causing 100s of undead pirates to roam free in the Caverns*


I hate games with undead things in them, there's too much of it.
