I have 3 rules for games that I do not play. These are my personal rules of things I can't stand in video games

1 QTE (Quick Time Events) can't stand them, I always play on the crushing, no hope, hardest level so the QTE is literally .2 of a second, it's pretty much just guess the button event or die, then do it over and over again

2 Platform games (Mario, Sonic,) I have no patience for these games, you fall of the ledge you die, you miss the jump you die, you jump too early you die, hate them

3 Re-spanning enemies (Any game) Especially hate them when you have limited ammo, you use up the ammo and the enemies keep coming, you are left to just speed running through the game, hate doing that

My 3 rules, if it's in the game I don't play it

What are your game rules?

Well considering the game I play the most consists of clicking circles and flinging my cursor across the screen, idk what I specifically hate, other than random points in a game where they give you so many different options and ways to go, but I only have like two or three that I can take, and one of them involves popping out of stealth mode and going loud, which even then doesn't always work.

I present to you, THE 10 RULES OF GAMING.
1. Don't have a First Person Platformer, when you can't see your feet.
2. Don't have a dramatic build up, and a crappy ending.
3. Don't have a cutscence and have a quick time event pop up in the middle of it.
4. Don't have DLC that has no extra content.
5. Don't try to make a realistic game without realism.
6. Don't put out a Glitch Fix that breaks more things then it fixed.
7. Don't make a long game with no save or check points.
8. Don't make a game that gives the player no clear objective.
9. Don't make a game with hard enemies and crappy controls.
10. And last but not least, don't have a escort mission, where the AI wants to die, and commits suicide.

What are your game rules?

1. No blatantly false advertising (graphical downgrades, features promised but not delivered, that sort of thing)
2. Bugs and glitches (if a game gets its act together, then I would consider buying it)
3. Games blatantly chopped up into a bunch of dlcs and microtransactions
4. Timers (mainly applies to mobile games)

That is my general guideline for deciding not to buy a game

Pay-to-win games (usually mobile games, or servers that let you "get this OP stuff by donating money")

I can stand there being DLCs to "improve gameplay" as long as not buying it won't actually keep you from playing properly. I can also stand minor "pay-to-win" games that give you the option to donate in exchange for "faster point gain" or some kind of privilege like "seeing the beta project early!" because it doesn't make you instantly better than everyone else. I've been on servers where players who didn't donate were stuck with the same five classes, which were rather low-level, but players who donated could get gear that, if you donated enough, could kill you in two hits if you weren't careful.

Of course, people who get that good gear tend to think they are better, and don't really do anything, so they sit in packs together. If you can single them out, they're easy to fight, just hard to kill because of all the armor stats they have.

Free-to-wins that let you donate in exchange for perks that don't give you an advantage are also cool, which is another reason I love osu!
