types of games you hate?

Just what the title says. Maybe you've tried playing these games but couldn't enjoy them or used to enjoy playing them etc.

For me I don't play a lot of video games tbh, so mine are probably just from what I've seen

I don't like visual novels. I do not class them as video games because there's abrely any gameplay, just selecting option after option. I'm not saying every video game you have to be pushing a million buttons at a time, but sitting through cutscene after cutscene selecting a choice after choice isn't a fun time for me. I also hate how most of them don't even have animation just still fucking images. I know School Days have animation I believe but come on. This is not 8 bit.

I also don't like games that rely on quick time events. Like press x to throw a punch or press Y to block etc.

Shitty tie in video games. Like you know when the latest Pixar film has come out so a shitty game comes out?

Level grinds.  Some of the franchise games related to films, especially if the game doesn't live up to the film.  Auto-leveling of enemies in games like AC Odyssey.  The singstar or dancing games of the PS3 generation.  Some of the fighting games with complicated control combos.  Anything with a linear storyline, or repetitive use of game tiles for level-grind dungeons.

Oh yeah. LOL. I remember doing that on Pokemon Red and Yellow. Not fun, but I kept at it. It was more fun int Sun and Moon. Might be 'cause the game was in colour.

If a game blatantly pushes a political narrative, I'll usually get kinda put off.

All the "rpgs" that aren't jrpgs. Talk about boring. And they're all lumped into the same category so I have to go through them just to find one jrpg.

Find the impostor type games. I'm always awful at them and don't really see much appeal personally. They just seem boring. Unfortunately Among Us is really popular now so I have to deal with seeing it EVERYWHERE and people always wanting to play it despite having no interest in that type of game

I don't get the games where you take it in turns to attack one another and you have health bars. Usually there's cards involved and anime style characters. I just find that boring.

It's got to be level grinding. It's not terribly common in most games that come out nowadays, but going back to play an RPG that has it in spades is rough.
Mainly 'cause I don't have time to dedicate trying to level a character/party up.

Also RNG in games is the worst. Having to waste the same enemy over and over just for a chance it may drop that certain rarity or or item you need.

-Gatcha games. To me it's a waste of time. If I wanna doll-up a character I can just draw it instead of chucking $100's into gatcha rolls. 
-Arcade games that are just mobile game ports

I don't enjoy games that give me a time limit from the outset, especially RPG's. Something like, you have ten days to complete an objective, or you lose, go nuts. The persona series was probably the only franchise that got me to overlook that feature.

Idle games, I don't really see the point of them.
Bad sequels that are actually much worse than the games from before.
Cheap shovel ware games that are just trying to cash in on a popular trend or two.

I'm not a fan of Toy scanning games (Skylanders, Disney infinity, LEGO Dimensions ect.) Its one big cash grab where you buy the base game and then you had to pay even more money (Including a new shelf) to buy the figures in order to play as them in the game.

I do not like the games where you need to invest a lot. There are games not for real money, they are so-called social casinos. But sometimes the developers make it difficult to earn chips while playing and offer to buy them. And you cannot withdraw this money back, you can use them for playing only. So I prefer the real Rich Prize Casino  and a chance to get profit.

So you actually played/emulated those games? Cause I don’t think anyone in this reply thread have actually played an LJN and just going off from criticism from the Nerd episode.

Well except for me who emulated Spider-Man Maximum Carnage and WWF Royal Rumble without knowing a thing about the LJN toy company.

Also Silver Surfer due to a combination of that Nerd episode and how awesome of a soundtrack that game has which is the whole reason I replay that game.

if they aren't don right, visual novels can just be really boring, so i don't fault you for not liking them. Ace Attorney is a good visual novel series that tries to be more than just words on a screen with no meaning. You have a lot of input, and actually have to be paying attention to whats going on. 

As for my least favorite type of game- the dark soul esque games, the incredibly difficult games made to be hard. I have really bad gamer rage, and games like this just bring it out super fast. i've broken things from my anger, so i just try to avoid games that i know ill make me angry. Also, when I play games I don't plan ahead so a game like this with constant planning just isn't what I am interested in.

I SO wished there was more turn based games out there.

That, and controlling a full party, and having a lot of abilities = uber fun.

The Temple of Elemental Evil was like that, for example. Bad game in so many respects, but man the combat was fun.

Only until level 5 or so, sadly, because afterwards it became too easy.
