Associatedcontent: Video games aren't exactly made to mirror real life. In real life, money can't be found in trees and there's no save option. Looking at a video game is terms of real life can produce amusing results.
Useless sidekicks are by far the worst.
How about propane tanks purposefully laying next to an enemy. (Singularity, Borderlands, etc.)
Lol infamous has too many of those. Even on the tallest buildings next to the enemies behind w/e they are hiding behind.
Or the fact enemy A.I doesn't know RED THINGS GO BOOM and take cover behind them.
Red propane tanks.
It's just hilarious that amonst every grey oil drum, the only one that's is explosive is the vibrantly red one. ****also, when the hell did anyone think te inability to move and shoot was a factor of survival horror or fear---*coughs and hints a RE5*
I only like those because, depending on the game, you can get some nice looking explosions.
useless a.i/teammates. bungie, i'm tired of having to end up driving every friggen vehicle in the halo games because the a.i. pathfinding is so absolutely piss poor. i just want to man the turrets, instead it's left up to an equally piss poor a.i. gunner. having to babysit everyone-i love mass effect but jesus christ, stop running around and take cover! i'm tired of wasting medi-gels on these morons. games that don't follow their own rules-in every fps there will be an enemy manning a turret with unlimited ammo that never overheats. however as soon as the player uses the same turret, it has almost no ammo and overheats quicker than a fat lady in august.
Useless teammates is the way to go. They're there for story purposes, but don't do the work for me. I paid $60 to beat the campaign, not watch AI do it for me.
Clouds. I hate clouds they are ridiculous. I was playing MS Flight Simulator X and everything was fine but there was this HUGE MASSIVE CLOUD! and I was like WHOA THAT'S A HUGE CLOUD IT'S GODDAMN RIDICULOUS! So I was like if I go around this cloud I'm gonna crash because there is not enough fuel for that so I went in straight ahead and all was fine then BOOM. PLANE EXPLODES. FUC$ING MOUNTAIN COLLISION. NO SURVIVORS. Except me, I ejected.
The never ending life - old school gameplay all the way ...or something "new " like demon souls
Games nowadays are about fun, rarely about challenge. Besides, there is no need to add a certain ammount of life since well, games aren't made for Arcades anymore.
