Tech2.com calls out the most annoying trends plaguing the video game industry today.
Really, what do people get out of it?!!! ;)
I don't know because it's not something that is difficult to achieve. It's the opposite, it's incredibly easy. The difficult part is being first on an article that boils over.
So, uh, one of their points is "incessant whining," yet much of the rest of the article could be justified as whining. :D
Annoying trends: # Motion gaming (we should leave it at the wii and be done with it tbh) # 3D (but u can turn it off so meh) # Crappy MMoS that are guaranteed to fail from the instant anybody sees the first screenshot. Then they go on and keep making the damn things... millions down the drain. That would be all the ones on their way except SWToR and GW3.
Trends Im most annoyed with this generation is DLC (milking this gen is out of control) and watering down games to make them more appealing to the masses, AKA mainstream and casual gamers. Make new IP's for them and leave the more complex games.... well more complex. Don't sissify my tried and true franchises. Leave them alone.
Games that are called "free" to play...
1. Greed 2. DLC that costs money 3. Split screen games becoming scarce 4. Actual expansion packs becoming scarce 5. Rushed Sequels 6. Catering to the mainstream and casualizing games 7. Not enough JRPGs 8. Not enough Mech games 9. Not enough japanese games in general 10. Garbage console ports being released on the PC. If you're gonna do it, please do it right. I guess most of these actually fall in line with number one.
