Game Critics - I hate Tower Defense games. I really do.
I want to like them (and there's a million to choose from) but there's something about the passivity of the genre that drives me up the wall. They always start pleasantly enough, but things inevitably get overwhelming. All too often, success boils down to memorizing which enemies are arriving when, and there's nothing more frustrating to me than watching the screen, helpless, as my forces get overrun because of a single miscalculation. It's more like being a glorified bean-counter than actively playing a part.
