The Daily Grind: What silly thing has bothered you about a game?
I like Star Wars: The Old Republic a great deal, but it still bothers me that I can’t just sit in a chair. Same problem with RIFT, which also takes forever to give starting Defiants access to an inn. It bothered me when I couldn’t toggle to walk mode in Guild Wars, it bothers me that I can’t wear spectacles with a cowl in Final Fantasy XIV, and I’ll no doubt find something else irksome in every MMO from this point onward.
None of these are game-breaking issues. They’re not even issues where the cosmetic style of the game isn’t where you’d like it to be. No, these are all problems that can be worked around quite easily, but just wind up feeling annoying. So what about you? What silly and ultimately irrelevant things have bothered you when you’ve played a game? Strange idle animations? A lack of environmental interaction where it should have been possible? Minor inconveniences?
