Hey, I thought this would be a good topic!!
Personally its got to be people who swap teams in online games just to be on the winning team to get more points resulting in majorly unbalanced teams!!!

gggrrrr...... killzone 2 really winds me up because of this :angry:

anyway what makes you want to throw the controller across the room when gaming??????

Hmm, I must say playing Call of Duty online can be a very fun, but also an rather frustrating experience.

First you have the little kids screaming down the mic in lobbies, and they're the ones usually running around the map using very cheap tactics (such as only using dual wield machine pistols). Not to mention people that camp excessively, don't play the objective, boost, or are just too skilled at the game for their own good!

But other than that it's a great game to play online with friends, and one I'll keep coming back to :)

I have a few dislikes in modern games-
  • Online players that are only concerned with their own K/D Ratio. I play half of my matches on team games, support the team. Sometimes I don't even use a gun, and just use a riot shield. (COD)
  • When a game puts too much emphasis on a badly designed mechanic (Assassin's Creed: Revelations, I'm looking at you)
  • When a game's file size gets too big to play properly, and it ruins the game. (Skyrim!)

Zairozen- Wow, he can hold his beer as well (Sammy adams). *Applaud* I underestimated you, SteelSatan.

I often dislike collectible trophies. They just get so annoying.


Feel free to add me on PSN with a message that you are from here. If you see a game that I'm high in percentage, but am missing online trophies, I'll definitely boost with you!

When alot of cheap things that makes a game more challenging occurs, I get easily annoyed. For example, on Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, whenever someone uses Deidara and only presses :square: to defeat me annoys me, because they only have to mash on one button! I get a kick out of kicking Deidara's ass in that game because of that.

Trophies are my biggest annoyance. Not because I don't enjoy collecting them or enjoy watching my PSN level increase, but because I know many people who flat out refuse to play fantastic games because the trophy list is hard, or because the game doesn't have a platinum or whatever the case may be. For someone to completely write off a game based on the trophy list is absolutely crazy to me. Even if I a game has a ridiculous trohy list where you don't get a single trophy for story based progress or completing the game, I'd have no problem playing it if it was my cup of tea. Hell, White Knight Chronicles is pretty much like that and I loved that game.

This describes my feelings towards trophies. And it's unfortunate I am one of the people swayed by trophy lists. But I'd rather play a good game with a hard trophy list than suffer through a horrible game with an easy one.

More than a few things:

1. People who play team-based games yet run around like Rambo's, worrying only about their stats or KD's rather than working as part of a team to win the match/objective.

2. Arrogant or elitist attitudes.

3. Listening to other peoples' music. Turn the shit off or go play a SP game and play the music as loud as you want.

4. Fights. I mean really, I could care less about what someone and their spouse/GF/BF, significant other or whatever are having a disagreement about. Either STFU or turn off the headphone and take care of your personal business.

5. Most online trophies.

6. People who purposely try and ruin other players games. I am not talking about the new gamer who may be learning the ropes and pulls a bonehead move (we have all done that), but those fucktards who purposely team-kill, shoot or whatever with no other goal than to mess up a gaming session.

- When lag slows you down and messes you up. (Super Empire Strikes Back)
- Douchebags that use Frag rounds in BF3.
- Cutscenes that can't be skipped!
- Dying in a tough spot and facing a cutscene that can't be skipped! hurr
- When people blast music through their headset... it's almost always shitty music too.
- Overhyped games that tons of people get just to realize that it's shit. (Killzone 3, COD, Sonic the Hedgehog etc..)
- Games that lay under the radar that turn out to be some of the best ones that you've played in awhile that nobody knows about because the piece of shit overhyped games are brainwashing the masses :( (Shadows of the Damned, The Warriors, Metroid Fusion, Metroid Zero Mission.)

Yea, that's unfortunate, but there are a lot of trophies that have pushed me into doing things that I normally would not have done that turned out to be pretty cool.

I unfortunately, tend to be this guy on Call of Duty. I don't necessarily want to ruin my team, but I go knifing the whole game because I find it more engaging and fun than shooting em up. Some games I'll be good at knifing, some games I'll be bad, but in the end, it wasn't the purposeful idea of ruining another allies game, but to embarrass the enemy team.

You would hate me then I guess. :lol: Though I just won't spend my time and money on games without trophies at all, I don't mind a difficult trophy list/no platinum. I have enough awesome games with trophies. ;)

My biggest annoyance are people online who clearly abuse exploits, but act as though they are actually good at the game. Find that a lot in NHL 12 and probably sports games in general. Instead of playing hockey, they just try the same one or two high percentage scoring attempts (such a high percentage I feel confident calling it a borderline exploit) the entire game. If you try these things enough, they will go in... no matter how good I play. Then to gloat like you actually have any idea how hockey is played? Give me a break.

I hate it when my team is too good. I love beating an entire team by myself. Goes back to the GTA IV Team matches, where I'd start with myself serving 6+ people on most occasions. I don't remember losing either.
