@DanteSolablood That is pretty unforgiving. Maybe the designers thought they were making the game more challenging for the better.

-I decided to split my complaint about Smash Bros. into two posts since it's pretty long and drawn out.-

When the March Nintendo Direct teased B.O.T.W. Link, I thought it would indicate a few serious changes to the characters (this video link here discussed character updates that was fairly in line with my opinions, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MU33OaerX1s ). However, with Smash Bros. Ultimate, other than Link, the rest appear to be mechanically the same overall.

If S.S.B. Ultimate does have customs, I hope they are accessible immediately when the character is unlocked, varied and faithful, and maybe something more like Mortal Kombat X's character variations where you could have Scorpion use one of three sets of moves such as the Ninjutsu, Hellspawn, and Inferno sets. In Smash Bros. Ultimate, that would be like if Luigi had his ''Smash'' moveset containing his standard moves, a ''Haunted'' move set based upon Luigi's Mansion, and and a ''Jumper'' move set based upon his appearances in the Super Mario line of games. This way, people can still use the standard moves they have become accustomed to while having access to something more authentic. Plus, it could prevent to having a certain mix of moves from being unbalanced.

I know it's a bit much to ask for and a pipe dream but if they add this in then I don't think I'll be disappointed if there isn't a story mode.

Trailing missions with characters that go faster than walking speed but slower than running speed make me want to smear myself with peanut butter and jump off a roof.

@I_Am_A_Geek Call of Duty is pretty guilty of that isn't it?

Peanut Butter?

Modern Tetris games with a tetramino piece that touches the bottom of the grid and you're still able to change his position for a brief moment. It breaks up the pace of the game while also potentially screwing up the layout I had in mind.

Have you been playing Sonic Forces?

When people suck at a game and try to blame it on poor game design rather than admitting that they just suck at it.

Games with D.L.C. packs that outweigh the content of the base game.

@ReaderRagfish Don't worry. I was just seeing if someone was going to mention Star Wars Battlefront I & II but my interest in a conversation about that has peaked a bit ago. Sorry if it bugged you.

@Elvie Nah, it didn't bug me, just thought it was a bit odd.

I hate fetch quests etc in open world games that get marked with a dot on the map. I would rather no dot and have the NPC give me directions eg turn left at the church, go up a dirt track and turn right at the swamp. This kind of thing really breaks immersion imo.

When games only allow you to use the memory card in the first slot on systems like Gamecube and PS1.

Games that use a retro aesthetic as its main source of appeal. I don't hate the style but I don't like how developers use it to cop out of making a original visual signature, have an excuse for bad/simple presentation, or to capitalize on 8-bit/16-bit nostalgia, often as bait to sell an average game.

When Switch games don't allow you to connect more controllers than there are players.

If I'm using a controller that doesn't have a home button (such as the Pokken or Gamecube controllers) I'll turn on a Joy Con when I want to go back to the home menu. But sometimes the games won't allow any more controllers to turn on while in the middle of a game, so it doesn't work.

@ReaderRagfish That reminds me of an annoying occurrence in Super Smash Bros. For Wii U.

If you are using a Wii remote as first player and you accidentally activate a input on the Gamepad, the Gamepad will automatically become the first player. To fix it, you have back out and enter the desired mode using the Wii Remote and it is deeply tedious.
