Gamersmint: Today, Gamersmint looks back at such annoying/irritating/retarded gaming cliches which has…at some point of time made most of us go mad.
Very nice article, sometimes no swimming annoys me too, I mean wtf.
Awesome article. I would add, idiot townsfolks to the list. They are annoying as hell and are present in most RPGs
an article which is not about ps3 or xbox 360 exclusives? /reads
"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!
its wasnt part of his contract
I am reminded of Cole from Infamous. Dude could climb anything like he was sticky but a chain link fence would stop him everytime.
Or God of War 3, Kratos could fall from Olympus and survive but fall from a little ledge and you are dead.
lol fucking fences
@zootang wtf you talking about? right before kratos falls he´s saved by athena
reminded me of Halo 3 lol, Master chief saving humanity but died in a puddle. Damn you BUNGIE!!
What about sexual innuendo and women with large breasts?
Women with large breasts that have water balloon physics.
But those are nto annoying...
Those are LOVELY, my friend! Perfect example of why they're awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Lol neckbear...wth was that?
"3. Retarded AI Companions" & "4. Invisible Walls" These two infuriate me the most.
Best Cliche... nearly all video game women have awesome bodies
Excellent read. Question: For the "RPG INN" sleeping one, which game are they showing in that screenshot? Thanks in advance...
it's Laxius Force 3. It's an awesome RPG and you should try it out.
Looks good. Thanks for the help, sir.
It's made with RPG maker... buy that and you're off to make your own rpg games
How about we take everything out of games that makes them games.
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.
1. Heroes can Never Swim 3. Retarded A.I Companions 4. Invisible Walls I hate these. I hate these with a passion.
in infamous...it's pretty logic that you can't swim... you're electric man...lol
True. 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? EDIT 3: http://www.youtube.com/watc... The BttF DeLorean in GTA4.
Ramirez! Do everything! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
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.
Reminded me of http://www.youtube.com/watc... Hilarious
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 .
but from ac1 is more or less a bad excuse lol
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 ..
what about for Halo?
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.
i love exploding red barrels. especially in BFBC2 where they blow a huge hole in the wall
