1. fanboyism
2. movie games
3. crappy ports
4. timed exclusives( not genuine)
5. arron greenburg


You already said Fanboyism at Number 1. So you don't need to mention Aaron Greenturd in the number 5.

Shouls be at nr 5, This whole new aspect of charging a couple of dollars here and there for small and menial items for games.

achievements/trophies and headshots are the worst things to happen? What 4 y/o write this?

BeaArthur3258d ago

Agreed, 1 through 3 are legit but 4 and 5 are just stupid. Sounds like someone only had 3 issues and just decided to take on 2 more.

He's right about achievements. We used to play games because we enjoyed them. Now we play them to swell our e-peen (gamerscore). Developers think of the most tedious, asinine, time consuming ways to keep us playing their usually shitty games. Pacing? Story arc? Gone, baby, gone.

"Pleased be advised however, that it is not recommended to consider the "headshots are the best solution" idea in real life situations."

This I find incredibly stupid. In a combat situation I do believe a headshot would be the quickest most affective way to kill a person.

Whats this guys problem with options? No one forces these things on you. If you don't like trophies or achievments then ignore them. It is your own ego that will not let you so blame that. (I dont judge because I trophy hunt too, but I wont blame my own habits on the game.)

I try my best to get the platinum trophy in a game I really like, first playthrough I ignore all trophies though. Got 7 so far, none of those "easy" ones like Terminator: Salvation and the like, as I said, only games I like, I don't rent crap just to push my trophy counter, that is just wrong.

i agree with everything except achievement and trophies. Maybe because i am a trophy/achievement whore!!! But still.

What about DLC? Developers often use it as a way of cutting content only to resell it later.

Megaton3258d ago

That would be near the top of my list. When abused, it's probably the thing I hate the most about gaming today.

BeaArthur3258d ago

Even better, DLC that is already on the disc.
