79 Things Games Developers Need to Stop Doing

"Tropes are over-used conventions or plot devices. Analysis of them is common in TV and movies, but in fact tropes are even more prevalent (and damaging) in games than they are in other mediums. Tropes can be a crutch for developers; a cliched element of design that is both lazy and unoriginal. Here are the 79 worst, most commonly occurring tropes in games.

The very first thing is that they need to be programming to take full advantage of all the power of each platform and not developing for the lowest common denominator. My fear is that the xbone will hold games back on the PS4 because instead of taking advantage of the superior PS4 tech they'll instead program for the inferior lowest common denominator xbone. Only in the Sony exclusive will we get the full potential of the PS4's superior tech.

Really? I don't completely disagree with you but there's no need to start that debate here, because quite frankly it's pretty much off topic.

As the other guy said, COMPLETELY off-topic. What sense does that even make dude. Click on the article first, then read it and than make a comment about the article and don't just troll around on here. How do you even have 7 bubbles? You should have one tbh.

On topic: It thought it was a funny read. Off course it's just for entertainment and should not be taken too serious, because games are just games, but it's funny if you compare how things work in games to how things work in real life.

I never understood the hate for red barrels... I like them

RBlue_Desire1176d ago

Was a Long and good read, but you can't really take out most of the stuff like Zombies/aliens/whatever coming out of vents, and stuff.

Also I like that in some games the factor that affect stealth is noise you make rather than crouching.
Its just fun walk slowly back to someone rather than crouch running.

I like this list just keep the red barrels, I see monsters /zombies and aliens coming from the floor or roof, or it takes over the main character.
