5 Terrible Features In Great Games

May you find what you are looking for.

The above line is an old Chinese curse. The disparity between Western and Eastern culture is never more evident than in their way of insulting each other.

Our insults start with something like “your momma so fat…” Eastern insults start more along the lines of “venerable sir, may I have a moment of your time?”

This barbaric line might then be followed with “may you find what you are looking for”. If you are a douche you might interpret anything anybody says ever as an insult. In which case you’d throw your arms back and scream “Come at me bro!” while arching your shoulders and trying not to pee yourself.

If you were more reasonable you’d probably think it’s a sweet thing to say. Yes, I do hope I find what I’m looking for. You have yourself a nice day mister Miyagi (or Jackie Chan depending on your specific level of Asian racism). (Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, God of War 3, Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning, PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

Yup, skyrim is not the game to play if you are really into combat. They really gotta rethink the combat in any future elder scrolls games that might be made. Even if they just made it feel like your sword was actually cutting something or had a lock on system similar to dark/demon's souls. Ranged combat in elder scrolls isn't too bad, but they gotta fix melee combat if they want to make the game more enjoyable for everyone.

It's also not the game to play for story either, especially when you consider the genre it's in. Numerous RPGs have much more engaging storylines.

Skyrim is beautiful and an incredible technical achievement but as a fun game, I think it's lacking in some key areas. I'm approx 60 hrs in so maybe it gets better.

I'm only 15 hours in and I'm already done.

After games like Uncharted, The Witcher 2 and Kingdoms of Amalur, I expect more interesting narratives than Skyrim is offering.

It's a real pity.

Maybe Fallout 4 will be awesome :)

i couldnt agree more with everything on this list.

COD SP=stopped playing becuase it was just so similar everytime and i still to this day cannot follow the story in any 1 of them

AC=no comment, never played

Kratos=i used to love him but by number 3 he just seemed lost and that nonsense at the end of 3 with the max payne like segment, just awful

kingdom=lip syncing is beyond bad lol good thing i am mostly reading the subtitles anyway

skyrim=oh the combat, what i dont understand is they tried to make skyrim more "realistic" with every other aspect ( as much as a fantasy game could be ) but they didnt do anything to improve melee. after demon/dark souls they should have had a perfect template for how the combat should feel too

I'm really glad I'm not the only person who felt this way.

Carry on you magnificent creature :)
