    How about the "urgent quest, please help! But take your time, no real rush."

    Haha, I started playing Icewind Dale a few days back. I was supposed to do a mission of Utter Importance and Urgency, yet when I chose to Rest since my wizards were exhausted, THREE FULL DAYS WENT BY RIGHT OUTSIDE THE ENEMY BASE.

    Talk about suspension of disbelief.

    A game having more than 5 endings. As much as I like chrono cross and heavy rain, beating them 10 and 17 times,respectively, and in different and specific ways, is more of a chore than anything else.

    For those who have played MMO's.

    "Here, take this whistle to attract rare horses to charge at you! I need their hooves for my stew! I need six hooves!"

    "Six hooves? That's two and a half horses!"

    *Kills 20 horses in a span of an hour without a single hoof drop.*

    Black guy hair defaults to afro, its a permanent thing unless its intentionally (and laboriously) changed. The afro is just longer in game.

    Female? Time for her to overbearingly prove that she's just as good as the guys! As if that's her only purpose in life.

    Thats irritating IRL to, lol. (read: people out to prove things are irritating)

    The focus on graphics and deadlines to the detriment of everything else. For most games, ps2 era graphics would suffice.

    When developers try to bank on how serious their game is, while others are just silly.

    "Swinging a controller around to try and hit pink balls? What a silly waste. No, instead buy our game which shoots blood at you as you kill hundreds of enemies a minute with super powerful rail guns as we tell you a story you've heard a thousand times and could have been written in a day!"

    This, but isnt it weird that by following the same format, you get the greatest Warhammer games?

    I mentioned this is my huge post. 1 or 2 is max for me. They lose all meaning when there's tons.

    I would mostly agree with this except for the Chrono series (Trigger and Cross). Primarily because the different endings occur from wildly different circumstances. In both there's a choice on when you challenge the final boss with varying degrees of difficulty and consequent endings. It can also set up personal goals for a game you enjoy. I was pretty happy in Chrono Cross when I beat the final boss in their version of NG+ with only my main character. Hint: I killed him before the story actually began in that playthrough
