Default Whats one of your gaming sins?

So we all know that there are some games or things within a game that is loved by all and is accepted by the industry. The questions refers to which of these accepted and loved game features do you hate or dislike?

Choose only one to make discussions easier please.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For me it would have to be Morrowind. I don't know why but I cannot stand the game. I tried modding it for graphics and added features, I tried playing it stock but nothing can get me to like the game. My GF thinks I am nuts, especially considering how much I love open world games. There, thats my sin. I can't stand one of the most beloved RPGs of modern gaming.

Easy - Half-Life 2.

I think it was released as an unfinished, boring, predictable as all heck, inconsistent waste of code. The 1st and 2nd episodes improved it greatly, but when it's coming from the bottom of the barrel that's not saying much.

Hate it.

I have tried playing Half life 2 several times. I bought it when it initially came out and followed its dvelopment religiously before particularly during the stolen code and the year delay. I just cannot get into the game. It is very overated. Does that count as a sin.

I was going to add Arkham Asylum but i enjoyed it a hell of a lot more on my second playthrough so all is forgiven. Cannot wait for Arkham City

YES! And thank you. I was beginning to think I was the only one here who didn't like it.

I'm a little confused on the topic, but here is my go:

Borderlands and Oblivion. Never finished these games because I could not get into them.

You're not alone.

The first time I played through the game I played on hard. Made it through without dying even once and extremely fast. Thus I refer to the game as Half-Short 2.

Thought it was predictable, boring, and a bit bland in the graphics especially after Far Cry.

Gears of War. Ugh. An ugly game with repetitive combat wrapped in a little too much "brofist!!"

Also, team fortress 2 never interested me in the slightest.

Gaming sins...?

Well this one time, during a Tomb Raider game...


No but seriously... I dunno. Never got into WoW and that's apparently uber-popular. Never got into the CoD or BF MP craze. Though I did enjoy Duke Nukem 3D as a boy, never did get into the series.

Yup- I'm a sinnar.

+1 for HL2. I just can't get into it. I have a lot of other sins as well. So many games I have but I haven't played because I haven't gotten into them.

Hardcore mode in FPS games. I realize that some say it's more realistic. It just makes it too easy to kill enemies. It's noob mode.

I disagree.

Anyways games I hate with a passion because they are disgustingly awful are Far Cry 2 and Mafia 2.

Wow I can't believe people here hated HL2, that is one of my favourite games. I remember playing it at the time and loved the physics, cool level designs, car & hovercraft missions were heaps of fun. My only complaint would be that it was too short, I was enjoying the game so much when it ended I was sad lol. Doom 3 came out at a similar time and that game was boring and over rated. Who could be bothered reading the PDAs? the guns were boring and the the indoor cramped corridors just aren't my style.

Sin? probably the fact I like BF2 over bad company 2. I just don't find BC 2 as fun as BF2.
