Top 10 Enthusiasm Killers in Games

BT: "We’ve all been there. You’re playing a game, having a great time, and then all of a sudden you’re hit with that one thing that will absolutely kill your enthusiasm. You think to yourself, this particular quirk of the game won’t show up too often, and when it does, you’ll be able to power through it. But no! It turns out that particular quirk is one of the main gameplay mechanics!

I have so many games sitting on my shelf that I haven’t finished. Games that I was just unable to get through because there was something about the gameplay, some annoying hitch in the game’s design that just completely killed my will to go on and made me shelf the game. Of course, there is a scale to such annoyances and some of us are willing to endure one more than others. Even though tolerances may differ, I think most of us can agree there are some common threads that run through these games.

There won’t be any special rules for this list, but instead I’m going to include a brief list of some common offenders of the things that I list. Bear in mind, this does not mean these are bad games. Even the best games sometimes suffer from something that really causes your enthusiasm to take a hit. So let’s take a look at what we all love to hate!"

I just hate things that don't fit. The planet scanning in Mass Effect 2 for example.

i don't understand how there can be bad AI in any game these days. surely, unlike graphics, it should have matured but instead seems to just be rewritten for every new game from the ground up. is there not a couple of AI middleware players out there waiting to clean up?

how can a game today have the same AI problems as a 10 year old game?

good article BTW

Devil May Cry's camera makes navigation more interesting...and not a chore like many other games. I love DMC!
