What are some things that make you suspect you won’t like a game?

Recommended Posts

We’ve talked about games that we didn’t think we would like that we ended up getting into. I am pretty sure we also have probably talked about what criteria we use to pick a game to play, i.e. what we think will make us like a game.

But what makes you suspect that you won’t enjoy a particular game when you watch a trailer, read a description, or read a review?

In my case, I think what makes me shy away from a game are mentions of puzzles and/or a lack of discussion regarding story or characters (making me think that neither are relevant). Unless it is an open world game, in which case I don’t think I’ve ever suspected I wouldn’t enjoy one. I used to suspect I would dislike all third person perspective games, but I’ve since gotten used to them, so that is no longer a deterrent.

What deters you from becoming interested in a game—sometimes perhaps to your own detriment?

Guns. I’m a fan of medieval style games. Modern stuff just doesn’t hold my interest. I’ve played several games where the characters were in a modern world and the weapons they had access to were guns. They did nothing for me. But if the projectile weaponry you have are bows, but your main weapon is a blade, then there’s a good chance I’ll like it. Now that’s not to say I haven’t enjoyed a couple modern games. But they are few and far between.

I think when there are too many features and things are dragged. A lot of those time I'd say that even one level or spending few times into the world would get you bored. That's how you get idea on you won't like the game.

I've never liked a futuristic game. Usually, if a game is set in the future, it's a safe bet that I won't like it no matter what.

There's a few things that turn me off when it comes to looking into a game I think I might enjoy.

1. POV - I'm 99% of the time not going to enjoy a game if it is in first person. The only game I particularly like that way is Minecraft. Others tend to bug me.
2. The amount of blood - I can't handle blood or extremely violent games, so when I either see it in a trailer or read about it, I generally avoid the game if it feels I won't handle it.
3. No plot - I love a plotline in games. If I read the description and see no plot at all, I'm more wary of it. Even most of my simulation games have a plot!

Those are the main things I can think of... I'm sure there's more though.

I'm typically not a fan of first person games either. I've played a few, but I can count the ones I actually liked on one hand. And I would still have fingers left over on that hand.
