Almost as annoying as escort missions are the "defend me while i hack this terminal" routines. Those are usually tied into the escort mission somehow, and usually make me want to pack up the game and sell it to Gamestop.

Does anyone enjoy escort missions?
F... NO!!

Worst Video Game cliche ever!! I think Devs now a days put them in games just to piss the Gamer off or the Dev has run outta ideas!

The fact that its become this generation's escort mission makes it all the more infuriating.im surprised escort missions still make it in games today,their hatred hasn't exactly been secret.

Couldn't agree more.

Moreover, it annoys me that your A.I. escortee often aspires to be the world's greatest bullet catcher - STOP RUNNING INTO ENEMY GUNFIRE, YOU PLANK!!!

It depends. Vanquish gave me the most enjoyment I had in an escort mission recently due to a "certain" engineer.....XD

Yep. This entire game is an exception for escorting.

I like em in GTA. Because they're usually silly.

Everyone who thinks escort missions are good please youtube "spyro 2 escort mission" and then re-evaluate whether you like escort missions.

It's boring, especially when the characters AI is dumber than a rock, constantly getting stuck or dying. You make it through barely, and now the nimrod has to make it somehow.

I notice some games do it to try and make things harder. You can get by just fine on your own, but suddenly they throw people in to protect and its the longest level in the game because of it.

Only thing more boring is when a character goes "follow me" and walks slower than hell all the way across the map. If you walk faster he gets mad and stops, or you still have to wait for him to get there to "open the door" All the while you don't do anything at all, you just follow

Nope. Worst mission type.

Bioshock's protecting the little sisters can be obnoxious. Bioshock 2 is worse withe big sister battles. I found them unecessary in their abundance. I agree with this article though. Die and try again escort missions, suck! I don't mind them when they are scripted or streamlined. It's the long, drawn out, no checkpoint escort missions that should be banned.

X-Com escort missions are fine.

Guild Wars 2 players LOVE escort missions. They're good for XP and usually part of a chain of events.

I always complain bout escort n defend missions. Sigh. And the new one in FPS's is go climb on a mounted gun- yes I'm pointing at COD. Try playing soap, price n yuri african mission on veteran

In those games where I can I generally start those missions by shooting the people I have to protect. I hate them. With every little fiber in my body I hate those people.
