What’s something about games you didn’t mind as a kid but can’t stand now? – PC Gamer


When we’re children we’ve got all the time in the world for videogames, and so their frustrations and failings don’t always register with us as strongly. As we get older and develop our critical faculties, becoming cranky and time-poor adults, we stop being able to put up with some of those problems.

What’s something about games you didn’t mind as a kid but can’t stand now? Is there a whole genre you loved once but can’t be bothered with now, or just a single game? Have you become less tolerant of drawn-out cutscenes, badly placed save points, random encounters, or the entire concept of boss fights?

Here are our answers, plus some from our forum.

Alan Dexter: This is going to be controversial, but I’ve had enough of rubbish graphics. I survived monochrome computing, the colour clash of the ZX spectrum, and the relative beauty possible on the Commodore 128 and then the Amiga 1200. Since moving over to PC (in the early 90s) I’ve witnessed graphics improve at an incredible rate, to the point that I’m totally spoiled now and want everything to look gorgeous. Throw me an 8-bit retro game, no matter how good, and I’ll niftily step out of the way. No thanks. Not for me. Been there, done that.
