What words totally make you lose interest in a game?

Postby Millo » Thu Mar 20, 2014 10:50 am

For me it would have to be the big three


MMO- Let's be honest here, MMOs aren't exactly doing so great right now. I've never been an MMO fan, I just could never get into them so when I hear the premise of a video game or see a teaser that looks totally awesome only to learn that it's going to be an MMO it sort of kills the excitement for me. It means a subscription model, it means sucky ass combat system and UI taking up 80% of the space. It means grinding the same dungeon over and over and doing every fetch quest possible.

Free to Play- Also known as Cash Grab 2000, While I'll admit some games do free to play well (Planetside 2) a lot of the times it's just filled with unbalanced mechanics and quite frankly the equipment and weapons are just never worth their price point.

Mobile- Honestly who gives a shit
Have you tried turn it off and on again?

I do love Legos, but the Lego version of games are all one dimensional.

"Shooter" - Almost all of them are just so uninspired and when you consider the only way developers know how to make AI 'harder' is to give them clairvoyance it's just so fucking annoying to play most shooters. Good example of this is uncharted, the puzzle sections were pretty neat usually, the rest of the game was a fucking nightmare with forced shooting encounters everywhere especially on the jet skis.

"Realistic" - Brown, brown, and brownish grey. Also bloom.

"Fighting game" - Only one I have ever had fun play was Smash Bros and go figure it's the only one of it's kinda.

"Sports" - Even the few sports I like aren't any fun when played as a video game, fishing minigames being notorious for this in my book since they're either QTEs for 2 year olds or stupidly figety/luck based.

"tactical role-playing game" - Except on hand helds these are painful for me to play on consoles.

And of course there's the various motion control required garbage.

Sports- Why go play a game when you can play it in real life?

kinect- Even though it helped out with pushing technology further it still sucked because you could a say a word completely unrelated to the actual word you're suppose to say and the kinect will actual confirm it.

Anything that's a shooter- I'm so sick of them. Unless it's a franchise I'm fond of.

Turn Based RPGs that don't show your chracter(s) in battle- Seems really fucking lazy, and I want to actually see my characters in action.

Almost anything with Square Enix on it- I use to love Square, but they've really gone to shit. There are a few exception like Kingdom Hearts, but for the most part, Meh.

That's a weird thing to add. But considering the big major "innovations", being the regenerating health bar, and aggressive linearity, that makes complete sense.

I view motion controls as a undercooked meal. They still need more time to develop properly.

They need force-feedback but the only way to do that seems to be neural interfaces, rumble is not force-feedback. They also need much greater resolution, viewing angles, and refresh rates. At which point they'll still need to feel intuitive and natural.

Maddoc's analogy seems pretty accurate, motion control tech just needs some more development before it can really be natural or even good.

It''s not just 'some' development though, it needs like 20 years more.
