Having to do a thing three times would make my list as #1

Jeriphro910d ago

What do you mean? Like doing the same task three times in a row?

BrainSyphoned910d ago (Edited 910d ago )

Ya, find three items, kill three mini bosses, go to three dungeons. Things of three is a tired video game sweet spot number.

For me, it's collect-a-thons. They weren't fun in Donkey Kong or Banjo and Kazooie and they still aren't fun now. Why create these wonderfully oversized, detailed worlds if you are going to just supplement gameplay with ambiguous item fetch-quests.

There are exceptions, of course, But by and large, it just shows laziness on the part of the developer.
Good article, by the way!

Jeriphro910d ago

Yeah. It is funny some of the design decisions made by developers. Another one that irks me is unskippable cutscenes, especially after you die after the cutscene and are forced to rewatch the unskippable cutscene AGAIN. I mean, who thinks that a great idea?! haha

jambola910d ago

how about not allowing cutscene skipping
that's flat out inexcusable in any game in the last 10 years

i think the only real loss is GTAV

OtterX21d ago

I think everyone and their sister owns the game by now. They likely want to squeeze the rest of the holdouts before GTAVI releases.

Profchaos21d ago

That game comes and goes from subscriptions so frequently I think it's expected now. Like rdr2 on gamepass Rockstar Games only last a max of 3 months On a service

MrBaskerville21d ago

Talos Principle is the real loss.

BanginTunes20d ago

Facts that game is good as fuck I'm playing through 2 now, very underrated

Huey_My_D_Long21d ago

indivisible was pretty neat. Cute artstyle, fun throwback to older RPGs, shame its leaving but it is on sale often

shinoff218321d ago

Definitely. I e joyed what I played of it. Still gotta grab the physical at some point

Petebloodyonion21d ago

I'm not surprised by GTA V removal, Rockstar never allows this game to stay long on a subscription service.
They usually allow 4 to 6 months.

lodossrage21d ago

Yeah, they do that routinely with both GTA and Red Dead.

But it's because they know they can still sell them so they take them off and on to these sub services in cycle.

The weird thing to me is why is anyone still buying those games at this point? You would think after 3 generations of being sold GTA 5 that everyone and their momma would have it by now

RNTody21d ago

I fail to see how the loss of an almost 11 year old game that released across 3 generations is in any way a problem.
