I don't know if everyone else loves them, but at least I am being in the minority here when I say I hate waypoint icons. I can tolerate them when you created them yourself and when it makes sense to have them in the gameworld (The Division and MGS5 for instance), but often in open world games you accept a quest and it automatically creates the waypoint. It's lazy all around. Lazy design and makes the player lazy. Why even read what the quest is about? Just skip skip, accept and follow the icon. I've seen them in recent Horizon Zero Dawn footage as well and made me cringe.

Some games do give you the option to hide it, but then you are looking for a needle in a haystack since the world isn't designed around those UI elements. From Software does not use them in their games and I haven't seen them in the new Zelda either. In those games you really have to take in the world and explore and makes for a far more rewarding gameplay experience.

Street Fighter, i can only play for so long before i start to notice how shallow it is, also have no favorites among the entire roster and dislike pretty much all of the design and technical decisions they made in SF5... though i might not be alone in thinking that.
Final Fantasy, i played through all of 7 when it came out but only remember the final boss fight, so i tried to play it again when it came out on Steam and besides the funny writing i really hate the gameplay, when i got to the part where the game opens up with the world map i stopped immediately, played some of 9 as a kid but fell off, got back in with 13 and while i don't think they're great... i think the 13 series are probably the best FF games, 15 looks pretty bad.
World of Warcraft, back in the day i used to play online shooters with my friends, we were in clans, we had fun together, then WOW came out and every single friend i had turned into a mindless WOW zombie for 3-4 years. I wasn't against MMO's in fact i played most of them around WOW avoiding it on principle as i've never liked the Blizzard style of games, it got to the point that when they finally stopped playing WOW as much i had to re-meet my friends again, "hey, haven't seen you in a while", they still play WOW but only for a couple months in between long breaks, they coerced me into playing it so i did for a few weeks but stopped after i fell asleep while playing due to bordom, which has never happened in any other MMO, it only served to validate how i felt about the game originally, there are far better MMO's out there which fuels my hatred of WOW.

There are more of course but i think those are my big 3 in gaming, outside of games i'll quickly throw Pop and Rap music out there, the two laziest but most profitable forms of music, any soul left in those genres died a long time ago.

@dussck: I think it's a shame when the icons exist in games that could easily exist without them by default. Some games that come to mind are Bioshock (1 and 2), Deus Ex (the new ones) and the Dishonored titles. These all have enough detail in their environments and/or map systems that playing without markers is absolutely possible.

If Prey has these things I'm switching them off.

  • PC master race fanboy bullshit

If I'm sticking to the gaming category, this probably wins. Hate is a pretty strong word, but it definitely makes my eyes roll around several times just about every time I see this, especially when it's said outside Youtube commentary, where that type of stuff can (sadly) be expected. Obviously if you mention about it to the writer, you just can't take a joke. Fun times are good 'n all, but if it's really supposed to be a joke, maybe try changing it up a little after having repeated it for the past 5-6 years.

Obviously fanboy wars between any platforms in general are the fucking worst and I don't know how people are still keeping it up to this day. Oddly enough that was never a thing back when I was a kid and was the only guy who owned Mega Drive from my group of friends, while a good handful all had SNES. Maybe it was worse over in the US?

@glots: @maximus_dipplomacy: I always got the sense that it comes from newer PC converts. I guess I didn't know that many PC gamers growing up but the ones I knew were always chill and didn't discriminate that much. They were on the wealthier side or even nerdier than I was but usually they had consoles too. It wouldn't surprise me if ppl that can't stop talking PC this, PC that these days were the same folks that were yelling PC gaming was dead in the mid-late '00. PC gaming is good and can be awesome but sometimes, you have to go through all kinds of hoops or deal with janky shit. I like to play older games on PC and yeah, you'll probably be able to play them but I expect to do some leg work before hand.

I like some sweet things, but in general my bar for "too sweet" is pretty low, so I tend to not like a lot of things people seem to enjoy. The thing that annoys me the most is stuff like sugar in coffee which is terrible and ruins the coffee, banana on pizza, pineapple on anything. Like cmon, you don't have to eat sweet shit every time, savory or bitter is good too. :(

I have a couple of franchises I guess I can see why people like, but I sure don't. Notably stuff like Bioshock because it plays like dogshit, Borderlands because I think the RPG and the FPS parts clash in a really unflattering way and any survival games because they are braindead timewasters. Bethesda and Bioware have shit writers and I haven't liked one of their games since New Vegas and Mass Effect 1.

Phew, being inflammatory takes so much work. I'd take a crack at music/Tv and movies as well, but to be honest I only really actively seek any of those out if I expect to like them, so I don't really see much poop anymore. SyFy in general I could probably make fun of still though.

Final Fantasy 4.

FF4 may be the only of the NES/SNES FF games I actually don't like. I like 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 even to this day, but 4 is a total mess. I have been recently going through all the old FF games. I am playing it now [on the PC remake] to see if maybe I was just crazy for hating it back in the day, however this is the one I am having serious trouble even wanting to get through. The story is fine and all, but this thing is a total gameplay mess compared to these old ones [and that is even including the super weird FF2]. Just a complete mess gameplay wise [A slightly above average story is more than I need out of a game, I need it to actually play well]. I could go on for 20 minutes of all the things broken with the gameplay in this game, but I must go soon!

I mean you can find plenty of people who also think FF7 is a poor game and overrated, but I have yet to see anyone else agree with me that FF4 is a bad game, let alone the worst of the pre playstation FF games.

The best part, is at least once this is over I get to play Final Fantasy 5. A bit more of a simple story, but an actually fun game to play.

I guess this game is a perfect example of how often I don't relate to Brad on games. I love a good story and atmosphere and all that, but at the end of the day I need the gameplay to actually be half way decent [or why am I even playing a video game??] while Brad seems to be overly persuaded just by that alone it seems at times. FF4 just is a total mess in how the core gameplay of the game is.

She's right. Milk is the worst. The taste literally makes me vomit almost immediately.

Eggs too. Fuck eggs. I don't know why, but every now and then I forget how much eggs make me sick and I'll try eating some only to be harshly reminded. I feel like there was a short period in my life where I did okay with eggs if I threw them on some sort of breakfast sandwich with a bunch of meat and cheese where I could hardly taste them, but one day out of the blue, I tried eating one of those sandwiches and after just one bite and it came right back up.

@dudeglove: I grew up loving ghostbusters and watched it recently with my fiancée and didn't think it held up particularly well.

I don't wish to beat a dead horse, but Ghostbusters' "success" is because it was seemingly one of those "lightning in a bottle" moments where it was a combination of "hot" SNL stars (who themselves I do not think are all that funny, animal house did way more with much less), a catchy tune, a bunch of other things to create that summer blockbuster vibe that people seem to arbitrarily fall in love with for no other reason than... because that's what it is, and... that's seemingly it? Was there nothing better on at the cinema at the time? Turns out there was plenty good out that year, but also a whole bunch of other crap that people keep bringing up like it was the second coming (like Gremlins, The Karate Kid, and India Jones and the Temple of Doom).

I feel sorry for your fiancee.

Avocadoes. Everyone I know either likes or loves avocadoes, my mum eats them like fruit.

I can't stand the greasy texture and the taste, the mix of the them gives me this reflex that I'm eating a vegetable that's gone horribly rotten and bad and I just gag.

I really am not a fan of their "find your own fun" kind of game, and I barely stand playing more than half an hour of the broken campaign missions. Because at the time, being an "open world adventure game" meant "being a GTA knockoff", I was convinced I didn't like the genre at all.

Gremlins is okay but I don't love it and I never liked Indiana Jones. I also watched the goonies as an adult and didn't think much of it either.

I generally despise story campaigns that are longer than around 20 hours. There are exceptions, but for the most part any game longer than that is an over-padded grind-fest that long outstayed its welcome; dragging its plot on for too long and lacking game mechanics that make it fun enough to keep going on anyway.

And the games that are worth going longer than 20, like The Witcher 3, usually go well beyond whatever point they probably should've stopped at as well (in W3's case, probably around hour 60; that base game took me 80 hours).

Edward Norton movies. I know that's technically more than one thing, but everyone I know loves at least one movie he's been in.

I, on the other hand, have never been able to sit through a single movie he's been in. Not one. Not Fight Club, not American History X. Not even Kingdom of Heaven, and I didn't even know he was in that. Something about his acting rubs me such the wrong way that I can't stand it and won't watch anymore.

In light of the most recent episode of Game Tapes, an episode that heavily featured everyone's favourite handheld, the Game Boy Advance SP, I decided to dig out my brother's old SP that I used to play and take a look at why I despise this system.

Look at how cool this system is, it folds
Look at how cool this system is, it folds

I never had any problems with the original GBA but was open to the idea of a newer model. All I hear is how amazing the SP is because of the backlight and how the clamshell design was so smart because how could the screen possibly be destroyed.

Play. The. Game.
Play. The. Game.

A system that is designed to protect the screen is literally the only handheld system my family owned that ended up having a broken screen. I've owned every Game Boy at some point in time and aside from losing the battery cover on my GBA I've never had any problems with any other system.

So in order to make this interesting, let's hear about something related to video games that you hate but seemingly everyone else adores.

You forgot to put in the part that explains why you despise it, or do you despise it because you broke it?

Pokemon. I'll say that I hate it in retrospect because at the time of the first US release of the original games I was certainly in on the hype. I didn't get into the whole Pokemon GO craze in the slightest because I could think of so many other things I would rather do with my phone and I'm just not that nostalgic for it. Maybe it's less that I hate it now and more that I'm over it. Or perhaps I never had a penchant for collecting things whether it be cards, comics, or digital monsters.

I think my Chief Beef is that I was such a fan of the anime and ultimately what those games are betrays all the things about the concept that I found rad as hell at the time. For instance the fact that you can only choose 4 moves at a time was a real drag as that series went forward and I realized it wasn't going to change in later years. Whereas in the show as long as you're a knowledgeable trainer who knew your shit you could basically whip out as many different moves as you needed to win. I also think the games are too grindy for my liking anymore. The world in the anime sure would feel dull if you're grinding levels all day instead of getting into fun shenanigans like escaping sinking cruise liners or going to the Poke-salon. Then there's the horrific reality of a world in which training pets to prize fight is presumably the most important thing in sustaining the global economy. Who knows how many underground deathmatch tournaments must exist on the fringes of this society.

@liquiddragon: Nope, not a one. I mean, I'm perfectly capable of recognizing that those are good movies that have good performances and that people should like them. But then Edward Norton appears on screen and I immediately tune out.

I'm just always aware that I'm watching "Edward Norton Playing a Character" as opposed to the actual character. He's sort of like Sean Penn in that respect (another actor whose movies I have trouble getting through). I think it has something to do with his voice. He's always delivering his lines in this nasally monotone that for whatever reason I find to be worse than nails on chalkboard.

@lawgamer: does he come off as a bit snobby, a bit douchie to you? I can totally see that. I also see where you're coming from with the acting but I've gotten to the point where movies are movies and a performance is a performance. I can't pretend like it's not. When you look at it from that standpoint, he is very skillful at what he does.

All of the Elder Scrolls Games I played (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim). I liked the opening theme of Morrowind and the first 2-3 hours of running around aimlessly, breaking into all the houses and stealing all the shit. After that I was done with their formula. I never even had much trouble with those games being buggy, I'm just bored to death by how bland and soulless they are.

And Black Ops. I was only ever interested in COD singleplayer, and in that regard I never thought that Treyarch had become the a team.

@babychoochoo: As someone who *really* likes FFXV, my opinion of the story is that it's told like ass but the overall narrative is fine. What makes the story enjoyable to me is that there are a bunch of really good moments throughout and the writing between the 4 party members is really good and human. Some of my personal favorite moments in that game aren't even parts of the main story scenes.
