Lack of regular autosave is a bummer. I'm playing Lego HP with the kids and you can't just turn it off whenever and it saves your progress, you'll often be glued to the controller for an unwelcome half an hour plus while you get to a recognised save point.

Weapon degradation can F off too. Never a good thing, why would it be.

Weapon degradation can be a fun mechanic if done properly, for example it really fits well in Metro Exodus but more often than not you get it in games like Breath of the Wild where it takes away from the experience.

I've become increasingly intolerant to literally ALL of those things LOL.
The problem is that people have voiced their distaste for all of those but developers double down and continue to include em as features rather than admitting they're a problem.

Weight limits when carrying items in massive games where almost everything can be picked up. If some gamers want a sim experience with weight limits that’s fine, but can others who don’t like it just turn that feature off? Have wasted so much time just moving items to chests, etc while managing inventory.

First mod I often install on any game is one to remove weight limits

Missions that force you to walk. I hate them. Or walk with someone. And weight limits. That's the only thing that's annoying me with BG3.

CoNn3rB135d ago (Edited 135d ago )

The one that gets my goat is NPCs that basically won't shut up until you move forward. I wanna look around an area without hearing "over here" for the upteen time in a row.

Bonus points for annoyance if it's an RPG

Sweet! I figured they’d abandoned it at this point. Fantastic game, sucks it released in such a poor state

Cool game but it has some issues on PC even months after launch. As usual I blame EA
