Looking at you, TLOU
this pissed me off so much in deus ex
no game, its not ok that you gave me shitty new weapons, I want MY tricked out weapons back. So many bad design choices in that game, it feels so rushed despite the fact they worked on it for 4 fucking years.

I think I'm right about that last part. I could be wrong and just stupid.

At least meet me half-way here and admit that samus should always have the morph ball from the start. I mean, goddamn, you usually get it like 2 seconds near the start anyways.
>megaman legends 2

The worst thing is how she says.
"OOPS. I'm sorry, Megaman!" while cheerful as shit.
Fuck that bitch with a white hot iron stake.

the game checks for defense value, so stripping them before a certain scene ensures their death no matter what you do
That's why you open your inventory and drop everything stackable on the floor before the script takes your stuff. Because fuck losing 20 lockpicks, 20 multitools and god knows how many grenades because of a stupid script that doesn't read how many items there are in a stack. I just imagine JC puts them in the same place he keeps all of his ammo.
No mention of the mandatory prison section in Duke's Archives?
That's one of the few legit moments of pure bullshit in Dark Souls.
Unless you were using a walkthrough, there was no way in hell you could have known that Seath was invincible. So you get killed. Sent to the prison. You lose all your souls and humanity counter.
And unless you somehow survive all the way from the escape to going back to Seath's area, then you'll have lost whatever souls and humanity you had on you.
>mission forces all your neglected, underleveled party members onto one team
>lose all abilities upon entering final dungoen
>get them back one-by-one before fighting the final boss
In GOG version you get upgraded stuff back.
Dragon Tooth is still shit, though. Loud, only shines against mooks that die quickly to everything, and can't knock doors open anymore since some patch. I'll keep the baton and the prod for half the inventory space and still have all my melee needs met.
Final Fantasy 6 and 7 both do this actually, albeit to a smaller degree. 6 tries to get you to play different parts of the cast at different points, but that doesn't stop the problem arising when you hit the final dungeon and have to make three teams. FF7 does something similar with the final boss depending on circumstances.
Better pray you were paying equal attention to your entire cast of party members or else.
>endgame area has two paths

yeah thanks for the warning shadow complex

7 isn't mandatory.
You can just say "nope, fuck them" in 7.
6 you're fucked out of luck.
>not dual-wielding rapid-fire dice with mcdaddy Setzer
Holy shit, you are missing out.
Even better because either dice or rapid-fire don't trigger counters (I forgot which, but I know that dice ignores defense, and fixed dice is even better). Only problem is you rely on RNG.
FF5 to an extent, but you actually can get some of that shit later. Less useful to though, and you can squeeze out with enough time if you grinded a bit ahead of time. You won't know to do that the first time through though.
What I hate about that segment is that your run is disabled. Fucking why.
>your reward is a fucking curse that stops you from opening your inventory

best kind of levels
>You have no more use for this key.
>Discard the key?
>Yes / No option
>there is literally no reason at all for you to keep the key in the game
Oh, you just leveled up in that dungeon? Too bad, so sad, you're now level 1 again. And so is your companion.
To be fair, you could keep your equipment upgrades, and this was kind of the point of the game.
>Having to choose which order you got your abilities back in without knowing which would help you the most in the next boss battle

>final boss steals all of it because fuck you

>boss battle theme is fucking awesome
>ending is still better than the anime and manga despite being "fucking nothing", simply because the other two endings were that terrible
Thank you, based Zeke.
>weapons can get hit by fucking death rays and explosions without a single scratch
>a tiny kitchen fire turns them to ash
This would have pissed me off even more and also gave me less reason to hate roll, so that's two strikes. Adding to the actual weapon loss makes three, so that's three strikes, get the fuck out.
>game offers you the choice to side with the villain
>automatic game over if you do
Oh yeah, I forgot
>boss battle takes place in space
>there are TWO suns somehow shooting out solar prominences and shit
>controls have you literally flying through space holy shit this is rad as fuck
That said, the game had a lot of kick ass bosses, despite also having a few lackluster ones. The fight against the angels was dope.
>morally ambiguous choice
>well i'll guess i'll choose this one
>+1000 bad guy points
>game offers you the choice to side with your friend
>can't progress past a certain point in the game because you need a certain item that is only possible to get by defecting and abandoning your friend
>which is what happened originally, but the revamped version suckered you into thinking you could actually change that, when all you get is just a playable "fuck you restart and do things our way".
Fuck man, I just wanted to save my friend.
>make perfect materia setup for all your party members
>go to yutai
>yuffie steals all your materia
>at the end of the yutai part she equips random materia to all your party members
Then they get put into your inventory. but if you did happen to have like, all party members with 5 weapon slots and 5 armor slots, when she puts it back, cloud would have Cids or something and Cid would have Tifas
Have companions immune to radiation
ITS YOUR FUCKING DESTINY YOU GO DIE AND GO INTO THAT RADIATION.
