warrior women trope

I'd be completely fine with this if any of them had the build of gwendoline christie with the muscle tone of ronda rousey, but all of them look like playboy models. every single male combat soldier has some muscle, but almost none of the females have any. the devs want to walk a line where they want to have female soldiers in there game, yet still want them to appear sexy. fuck that. give me a shredded 6'3 woman who is cut and has almost no curves

Why not?

The usual alternative is being trapped behind a neck-high wall that only exists to pad out a level. At least with parkour systems we can run over that bullshit.

Also I'm tired of medieval swords'n'sorcery RPGs. Sometimes it works out alright (Dark Messiah for example), but most of the time it's just "we read a Tolkien book at some point lets just go with that". In a world where Shadowrun/World of Darkness exists, it's goddamn criminal that there aren't more cyberpunk/occult-based RPGs.

How are there still long ass pauses during dialogue? Is it that difficult to make conversation sound, oh, I don't know, conversational?

Games with emphasis on player choice where your choices never have consequences. The worst it ever gets is having to choose between which of the two shallowest characters dies.
>>
>>285652171
This. In most games, conversations don't feel natural. Oh and also silent protagonists. I'm tired of main characters having zero personality because "durr you're supposed to self-insert". They're antinatural as fuck.

This. I would like to see more fantasy RPGs set in Medieval times. I would like more of Ancient Greece/Rome, Victorian Era (Arcanum), even a modern take on it. It's not that hard to go outside the box.

Fuck achievements in general. I won't lie, I've gotten some in games I loved playing as part of an excuse to replay them, but they usually add nothing substantial to games.

Additional challenges in games should unlock something in game, like a new mode, art, music instead of giving us an achievement

It was fun to be a melee-based character in F:NV and one-hit punch somebody so they would explode.

I do agree on the headshot thing, though. It's dumb that games don't treat headshots like it's a seriously lethal thing. Every game that does this (which is 99% of games) pisses me off when it happens.

I'm sick of games with dedicated tutorial sections that you have to finish before starting the game.

Either design the beginning part of a game in such a way that the player can figure out the mechanics with, at the most, quick explanations that don't stop the game, or put that shit in a manual, but stop with the whole "before you get started, let's teach you how to play the game" sort of thing.

also, a big double-fuck-you to games that disguise a tutorial level as some sort of "training" your character has to go through when you're playing as something like an experienced soldier but they're teaching you how to point and shoot a gun

Dumbing a series down because kids nowadays suck at videogames.

I dont mind simplification as long as it doesn't ruin the core game or series for what its known for, but introducing something like waggle or fucking motion cap to a series known for fast pace action, adventure, dungeon crawling...there's no excuse except selling out to fucking faggots to make more money.

It's completely retarded. I have no idea why Battlefield has it where you need at least 3 headshots to kill someone with an AR

And 2 in their hardcore mode.

QTE is probably the worst thing in gaming that I want removed.

Next would be the ability to regenerate damage taken.

Also, RTS games where you control one unit.

>Early Access

I've never gotten the hate for this.

I'm a software developer. Clients pay me all the time for unfinished software so they can go ahead and start using what features are complete, with the understanding that I'll complete the rest of it.

It's really common in software now since it's so easy to push updates. We usually call it "continuous integration" or "continuous deployment".

I don't see why it's any different if a video game customer wants to pay a developer for an unfinished game to go ahead and play it in its current state. It's not like they're being forced to
