Awesome article.

I would add, idiot townsfolks to the list. They are annoying as hell and are present in most RPGs

"Ever wondered why the main character of a game who eats monsters like Dragons or Elite Soldiers for breakfast, has amazing super human abilities to boot and can kill a Giant with his bare hands, dies instantly if he falls into a river or heck even a sewer for that matter? So have we."

I literally loled at that. Excellent and a humor filled article. The best read on n4g for sometime!

Same here, I was thinking about this while playing the original Mercenaries the other day.

Those guys will call in airstrikes and destroy entire buildings, grapple onto helicopters and throw the pilot out, hijack tanks while taking fire...but swimming is a big no-no!

I am reminded of Cole from Infamous. Dude could climb anything like he was sticky but a chain link fence would stop him everytime.
zootang  +   1855d ago
Or God of War 3, Kratos could fall from Olympus and survive but fall from a little ledge and you are dead.
wiggles  +   1855d ago
lol fucking fences
King-Leonidas  +   1855d ago
@zootang wtf you talking about? right before kratos falls he´s saved by athena
SoSLy  +   1855d ago

ElementX  +   1855d ago
What about sexual innuendo and women with large breasts?
UnwanteDreamz  +   1855d ago
Women with large breasts that have water balloon physics.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1855d ago
But those are nto annoying...
Neckbear  +   1855d ago

Perfect example of why they're awesome:
NexGen  +   1855d ago

SuperStrokey1123  +   1855d ago

"3. Retarded AI Companions" & "4. Invisible Walls"

These two infuriate me the most.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1855d ago
Best Cliche... nearly all video game women have awesome bodies
TANUKI  +   1855d ago
Excellent read.

Question: For the "RPG INN" sleeping one, which game are they showing in that screenshot?

Thanks in advance...
cyborg  +   1855d ago
it's Laxius Force 3. It's an awesome RPG and you should try it out.
TANUKI  +   1855d ago
Looks good.

Thanks for the help, sir.
fooltheman  +   1855d ago
It's made with RPG maker...
buy that and you're off to make your own rpg games
dead_eye  +   1855d ago
How about we take everything out of games that makes them games.
specialguest  +   1855d ago
Invisible walls are annoying
If there's a cliff, and the player wants to temp fate by treading recklessly near the edge, then the possiblility of falling off to a swift end should be there.
sam2236  +   1855d ago
1. Heroes can Never Swim
3. Retarded A.I Companions
4. Invisible Walls

I hate these. I hate these with a passion.
fooltheman  +   1855d ago
in's pretty logic that you can't swim...
you're electric
sam2236  +   1855d ago

Not being able to swim in RDR was utterly retarded, though. That's the only thing that pisses me off about the game. I mean, it came out last year FFS, not '99!!

I wonder if Rockstar could patch swimming into the game or something.

EDIT: I wonder if there'd be any swimming mods for RDR if the game had been released on PC. You think it'd be possible to take the swimming animations from GTA4 and put them into RDR?

EDIT 2: Or even better: Driving around in the DeLorean from Back to the Future, lmao!! It's already in GTA4, so I assume it could be ported to RDR?


The BttF DeLorean in GTA4.

Reminds me of MW2's retarted AI
Ramirez! Do everything!
Kon  +   1855d ago
It's true. When i kill an animal in a RPG he often drops money and weapons. But what a animal is doing with money and weapons? Not like he came back from a shopping day or something.
Zashule  +   1854d ago
Reminded me of
Redempteur  +   1855d ago
Heroes might not swim but at least i enjoy when we have credible reasons for them not being able to

( assasin creed 1) = bug in the animus.
Infamous = electricty and water ( not pure ) don't mix.

those were "okay" reasons and it didn't annoy me.

Also the night at the inn is not 100% recovery , check dragon quest for example , or golden sun .

fooltheman  +   1855d ago
but from ac1 is more or less a bad excuse lol
Redempteur  +   1855d ago
yep but it made sense .. it also made sense when they 'corrected' this bug ...

i agree it's the perfect escuse for lazy work ..but still a good reason ..
SoSLy  +   1855d ago
what about for Halo?
Tuxedo_Mask  +   1854d ago
I don't understand the issue with a night at the INN healing you. Call me old fashioned, but when your at your worst sometimes all you need is a good night's sleep.
gcolley  +   1854d ago
i love exploding red barrels. especially in BFBC2 where they blow a huge hole in the wall
