The cardinal sin of vidya: style of substance. Gameplay is damn near the bottom of the hierarchy of importance.
Enemy scaling. By half way through the game you can clear through bad guys pretty quickly if you're smart. New game plus is a total joke and you can tear most enemies to shreds with no issue unless you're a complete fool.
But seriously, though. That had to have been spammed on Nintendo threads. This is how it should be, not in order of console quality but descending order of cancerousness:
I don't care what games are available on any of those devices, only one seems to never shut the fuck up about their pixelated waifus and that's the Nintendobsons.
I enjoyed the gameplay in Killer7, as simplistic as it was. Most bosses had interesting uses of characters and guns. The worst part in the entire series is fighting the Hiroyasu Kirahashi/Shinya Akiba fight though. Holy fuck trying to shoot their brains is so annoying.
Fighting nuke general.
Pain in the ass motherfucker who makes like 8 nukes.
Is there an enemy worse than a Flood Combat form with a Rocket Launcher?
The minigames are terrible and there's too many of them.
Shovel Knight, still no Plague Knight DLC
Oh man, Prometheans. Such good origins, such cool lore, horribly executed.
>floating enemy goes first, can fly away, always annoying
>dog enemies, one shot kill with every rank
>bullet sponges that can teleport and have several one hit kill attacks
AND THATS ALL THERE IS
Halo 5 better have a whole slew of new Promethean types. I like the original plan of them being named and typed after chess pieces. Do that. Make it exciting again
All the menu time spent item swapping
Why is this the hardest boss in the game?
I beat Marx Soul 3 out of the 4 times I fought him, but this fucker...
I haven't played this game since around when it came out and I don't really remember anything about this chapter, but I always see these posts. What made this chapter so bad? I remember liking the art.
Played windwaker for the first time a few months ago on an emulator, I heard a lot about the triforce quest before playing it, but it didn't actually bother me much when I got to it other than the ghost ship.
The scoring system.
I always hate overly "gamey" shit like that, it's really distracting and annoying, especially for someone who's not very competitive like me.
Still, I obsessively got A+ on all the levels later on because I felt like I had to, not because I enjoyed it. FUN FUN FUN
The art is amazing but
>flurrie is shit
>one long escort mission with the little bugs who tend to fall off ledges
The backtracking in Twilight Town comes close, but at least it had a neat concept of
losing your body and partners to Doo_less and eventually fighting them with Vivian.
Nigga, Dingo is a badass and one of the coolest motherfuckers in vidya.
You best not be shitting on Dingo
I agree, it's just not that interesting and feels weak compared to the rest of the levels.
Even Twilight Town, AKA backtracking central had a great character and introduced
secondbest party member
This town in Fallout 1. It's just north of the Cathedral. Remember it? No? That's because it has no identity or atmosphere of its own, so they made up for it by throwing a whole bunch of big numbers at you.
The best energy weapon in the game. The best armour in the game. A map full of a gorillion deathclaws. The map just beyond it housing a group of weapon traders with more advanced tech than anyone outside of the mutants and the Brotherhood (who the hell are they trading to? No one else carries their merchandise). Forgettable characters, one-dimensional dialogue, and predictable quests.
This town was tacked on and they knew it. The only thing of worth in it - and the only thing that even related to the rest of the world - was the Followers of the Apocalypse...located in a sidemap that I *completely missed* in my first game. Fuck this place.
What, you enjoy feeling like you're in school all the time?
I don't need a game to pat me on the head and give me grades, I'd just like to have a good time. I don't see how I'm ruining anything.
You can have your good time. Nothing is forcing you to aim for a good score, but complaining that it's bad because it's "too gamey" ruins things for everyone else when devs start taking retards like you seriously.
Little replay value aside from discovering side conversations by going to places other than where you're needed. The first playthrough is fucking magical though, and after enough time has passed I still replay it desperately trying to feel those feels again.
>nothing is forcing you
Except for the huge, shiny digits that are constantly on the screen and pop up even more every time you do a thing. It's disruptive and pointless, but I'm only speaking for myself here, so don't get mad. I wouldn't ask anyone to cater specifically to me, I only shared my personal annoyance with my favorite game ever.
They originally didn't even want to put the tutorial in because "art doesn't have tutorials" or something like that. To me, the scoring and grading also feels like an artificial and unnecessary attempt at player validation, mostly accepted because it's been around as long as video games themselves.
Whatever, it's no big deal anyway.
>If you try and defend the areas you take you lose

Someone spoonfeed me why Nintendo fans are bad. Is it the constant Xenoblade threads? The amiibos? The rehashes? Look in any of those threads, and most people are critical about what the fag OPs start. Technically, the Wii U is underpowered shit, but I've had the most fun with it out of the new consoles. Can't be bothered to own a 3DS, though.
>all the hype built for the final mission
>spend 60% of it wandering around the world's largest unfinished basement, except with occasional forced fights with tedious and uninteresting enemies
What were they thinking?
Can someone find a flaw in the original Kirby Super Star? I seriously have no idea what my least favorite part is.
Maybe when i turn it on after not playing it for a long time and my save files get wiped out.
First Daylight sequence in Satorl Marsh all the way up to the beginning of Prison Island is the worst goddamn thing ever.
Anyone who says they liked Makna Forest is a fucking liar and they know it.
>If you don't defend, you lose: the game
The good ending conditions are bullshit, and the plot is cliffhanger as fuck if you don't get it.
We have a word for that anon, it's called a cliche, or a game cliche if you want to be specific.
Saying something is bad because it's too "gamey" sounds like you don't really like, you know, games. Like one would rather a game try and be non-gamelike, it's confusing and bad.
The final segment. Game is fucking incredible until you reach the NPP.
The fact that you can't explore this map thoroughly because you have to follow that Stalker group.
The bosses were too easy. The one in Maridia was difficult until you figured out the trick, but once you do the fight is over in about a minute.
The combat overall is not a challenge. But arguably the game is not about fighting enemies, but exploring. I'm not sure the game would actually be improved by making it more difficult.
When nintendo does something wrong they spin a tale to make it seem like /v/ has been in support of it all along, such as their amiibo dlc. Sonyggers do the same shit, but nintendo fans are too busy sticking Peaches crown into their urethra to call them out on it. Xboners were the minority after about halfway through the last gen lifespan. They did try to keep some superiority about them before the current gen consoles came out, but after the boner release they pretty much abandoned ship. The ones that are left are the best /v/ has to offer. However, I personally think that's because they're mostly normies: the ones that I've seen usually admit to playing madden or DA:I, but since they're new to the board they don't know how to shitpost and fuck a thread up like nintoddlers, sonyplebs and PCucks so often do
Don't let any tryhard 2deep4u faggots try to explain it as anything but a "fuck you" to all the fans who begged and pleaded for a sequel.
Oh yeah, I thought that might happen. That's totally not what I meant, maybe "arcade-like" would be a better word.
Otherwise, Hotline Miami represents everything I love about games.
>a variety of activities
Such as: murder, murder and more murder? I'm not sure what you mean.
I doubt it's me who has mental problems if I really don't need a game to use a boring, pointless system to let me know I'm doing cool shit.
I can see I'm doing cool shit and my incentive is that it's fun, not because Mistress will give me an A+ if I pull off some sick combos and executions.
Shitty strength weapons. The large club, great club, dragon king greataxe, dragon tooth, etc. all feel the same and have similar movesets. There is also quite a large gap in how much strength you need to 2 hand certain weapons. Early game strength weapons only require like 12 strength, but if you wanna use something like the dragon tooth you're going to need at least 27. Dex weapons have much better progression.
Lategame turns take too long (even longer in multiplayer) and that makes it kind of boring. Besides, you get too powerful by then and it's not that fun to destroy everyone because you can. It's way more fun to need a tactical approach because your fucking army sucks.
the "huge shiny digits" are very much an intentional feature of the game and not pointless, the point is to emphasize the feeling that you are enjoying a video game, while "you" are also brutally fucking murdering people
what the fuck would it have said?
>Such as: murder, murder and more murder? I'm not sure what you mean.

You have autism. The score means nothing and is irrelevant, it's there in case for some reason you want to do challenging things instead of just completing the game as usual. If you can't ignore the score, it's your issue.
what about 3 makes you like it more than earthbound? especially since you aren't a 2deep4u faggot?
how can you hate grasstown with that awesome music?
sand zone is way worse
>incredible, heart-damaging tension for 99% of the game
>last thirty minutes is a poor man's Colonial Marines where you shoot facehuggers, watch xenos ignore you, and generally have all the challenge and gameplay variety of a Telltale Games title
Just kidding, not okay.
the bosses aren't too easy, they are a nice challenge. I and a friend have just played super metroid for the first time recently and i would say the bosses or on par with dark souls. most of them took under 5 tries, but a few demanded upto 10 tries, like that birdstatue which took like 35 misslehits, and it dodges or reflects shots if you dont shot it from the back while its shoting shit or the front at some short spesific times
How the level designs gets worse as you progress through the game.
>Ogre Battle 64
The fact it has to end.
....Okay on a serious note, I think a few of the later missions in the northern reaches where you are fighting the denizens of the Netherworld end up being a little pointless. If it had impact on how the final stages played out, it would make sense. Also, I wish Destin played a larger role in the plot as opposed to just showing up to be awesome. Oh and a limit of 2 black knights a game so I can't redo my army out of the Paladin/Archmage mold is kinda shitty.
The scoring system is really nicely presented, definitely. I still don't enjoy it, but it's honestly a small detail to me.
>what the fuck would it have said?
I have no clue. Nothing, I guess. That was one of the developer's sentiments, not mine. I'm fine with the tutorial.
>If you can't ignore the score, it's your issue.
That's basically what I said, though. I specifically mentioned how I wouldn't want devs to change their approach just because I don't appreciate one detail in the game.
I thought that's what this thread is about, naming the one thing that annoyed you, personally, in your favorite game. I'm just being honest, it's not a personal insult to the score-whores out there.
>You have autism.
Is this a hot new meme in the making? What do we call em? Ouya gotta be kidding me with your console choice?
>Defending Natalya from enemies
>Shes standing right in the open as enemies literally file out to shoot her.
>Escort missions ever.
Bioshock Infinite was awesome with its escort mission. Because your escort was safe from fire and actually HELPED YOU.
>This unit cannot be allowed to die.
>Is a powerful unit but dieing loses the mission.
>Literally sweating bullets as you escort VIP unit to destination.
>VIP unit dies because of enemies attacking out of no where and VIP unit just happen to be exposed or decided to chase.
Im glad that some strategy games had it where heroes and main chars revive or are revive-able.
Well, yeah, but those are still very distinct disorders, I would think.
Also, having some obsessive/compulsive tendencies doesn't really mean you have OCD. Some people like to say they have a disorder to excuse their weird behavior without knowing the seriousness of (technically) having an actual disorder.
I don't know, though, maybe I am crazy. It's not like I've been tested or anything.
I never go after high scores in games unless I'm so impressed by them that I feel they "deserve" it somehow, like I haven't *truly* finished a masterpiece unless I beat it in every single aspect. That's how I felt with Hotline Miami, it's pretty annoying.
>try to carefully clear a path through the enemy's lines
>order the VIP to location/check where an uncontrolled VIP is
>they decide to take the hardest, most well defended route because they have shitty pathfinding or want to stab a worker at the back of the fort
every fucking time
>mfw there isn't a bad part to Dungeon Keeper
Not my favorite game but one I like and won't replay because:
First part of KOTOR 2. Worst, most boring and shitty intro to any game I've ever played. Drags and drags. Game is fucking great after that but fuck that intro area. I don't even want to remember the name of it.
Honestly, for some reason, I'm okay with peragus. Its annoying, but not too bad. But Telos just takes fucking forever, and it just feels like you're accomplishing nothing up until you get to the polar enclave. Every time I see that bitch stealing the ebon hawk I just think "Christ, could you please just not do that for this playthrough?" Worst planet ever.
And that's what distinguishes it from having a disorder. If it doesn't affect your life that much, it's technically not a disorder.
That's only what I've heard, though. Apparently, "obsessive-compulsive" is "often used in an informal or caricatured manner to describe someone who is excessively meticulous, perfectionistic, absorbed, or otherwise fixated". Kind of like "autistic" for someone who's all of that times ten.
How easy beating Ganondorf was
Amazing game, that Wind Waker.
>Have 40 hours in
>Reached first "mirror" world
>Can't find what items I'm missing so I'm stuck
The writing can be overly cheesy at times.
Assuming I can't just say the shitty environments in general, probably that old faggot that levitates. That's by far the least fun, most out of place boss encounter in the game.
Thankfully it only lasts about two minutes. God Hand doesn't really have many bad parts because it's basically straight combat from beginning to end and the combat is awesome.
>They took out into free
>mfw the main menu now
I used to sit at the main menu to listen to it every time I played
>the GRAD boss
I can S rank Mistral, parry the fuck out of Monsoon, beat Sundowner in no time at all, and A rank Sam.
But I always have trouble with this damn boss.
the first time i played the game i didnt have enough washers to buy the chip to override the last boss. There wasnt enough money to collect in the level so i had to start the game over again
I used to hate the main menu and cringe at it but after playing a while I started to fucking love it. Same thing with persona 3/4s music.
>If it doesn't affect your life that much, it's technically not a disorder.
I think you're pulling that definition out of your ass. There are many "functional whatevers", doesn't mean they don't have a disorder.
I have OCD so I know OCD, needing to get scores in a game despite not enjoying doing it is typical OCD.
Favorite game is Final Fantasy VIII.
Worst part (for me) is the train mission. It's just not fun. I like pretty much everything else about the game, even the draw system.
A close second would be the prison (because going up and down constantly) and pretty much all of disk 4 (because no towns). But, I can at least fight shit in the prison and disk 4 has dem cutscenes.
STOP CURSING ME YOU PIECE OF SHIT EYEBALLS
I pulled it out of Wikipedia, actually. I'm pretty sure such a disorder affects a person in many aspects of his life. That's not the case with me. In fact, that hasn't been the case with any other game that I can immediately think of.
If we go by "a mental or behavioral pattern or anomaly that causes either suffering or an impaired ability to function in ordinary life" (again, Wikipedia; I'm sure that specialized medical outlets would be even more pedantic about what "disorder" means), it doesn't seem that chasing high scores in one specific video game and nowhere else qualifies as OCD.
The ONLY thing stopping me from getting max payne 3
THE ONLY THING
the bugs, occasionally
When you have to travel to every single town in the game to convince them to name you Hortator.
Just when the narrative picks up speed, it comes to a screeching halt for 20 hours.
Playing it without premium is suffering.
>Favorite game: Majora's Mask
Worst part: Pretty much everything that makes a Zelda game a Zelda game. Shitty dungeons, shitty bosses besides
Gohtand the "pre-dungeon" shit like collecting the Zora's eggs, defrosting the elder goron, etc.
>Shitty dungeons, shitty bosses
I still don't understand this. MM had some of my favorite dungeons in all of Zelda. The bosses were fine, too, especially Majora without the Fierce Deity Mask.
Maybe is wasn't so much the dungeons being shitty as they were tedious. Things like having to make clones 80 times in the stone temple and shit like that really got in the way. As for bosses, none of them really varied outside of "just hit it until it dies." I was floored when I saw that you didn't have to use any items for Odalwa.
>I was floored when I saw that you didn't have to use any items for Odalwa.
Yea, he wasn't particularly well designed. Though I know a lot of people are into the whole non-puzzle boss thing.
But Snowhead, Great Bay, and Stone Temple all felt so tightly put together that a lot of that menu jumping/swimming/whatever was more than made up for. These specifically I can't imagine being placed towards the bottom of a Zelda dungeon list, even with the "tedium."
Fighting Hibachi in any Dodonpachi game. It's the worst and best thing.
>my body every time I manage to defeat him.
Oddly enough, I felt like the sidequests were the thing that kept me going through it. Mainly because I
cried like a bitchwhen I restored Pamela's father.
I don't have a favorite video game. But what I'm playing right now...
cars are classed way too high when stock. a souped up shitbox will always go faster and turn better than a stock supercar at the same "performance index". my Sprinter Trueno i brought up to A class has something like 700HP. my S class luxury sports cars from bugatti and ferrarri wish they had that kind of power or torque

>first visit to the future
the flow of the game comes to a screeching fucking halt once you get to the populated dome. the sewers and subsequent dungeon are really bad, too
you want a flaw?
how about the fact the game teases that you can customize your party when you actually can't.
ayla will always be physically stronger than marle no matter how hard you try.
why even give marle the option to wear a power bracelet? poor game design.
shitty overrated game.
also, ATB is garbage. at least proper turn based has a little depth.
Crono has no personality, most of the characters are forgettable.
the soundtrack is mediocre, save for a handful of tunes, which are actually pretty good.
unavoidable battles going through passes and such. really no better than random encounters. worse actually since they're the same damn thing each time.
no voice acting.
100 different endings that are all more or less the same.
choices that barely impact anything. (think the courtroom scene in the beginning. no matter your choices, you still get sentenced to death. idiotic)
chrono cross is infinitely better.
