All main characters of RPGs have swords, which always do more damage than machinae guns and other assorted guns. RPGs where the boss HP and Stats are based on YOUR level, and the parameters are not a definite set.

good one.

How about what I call "hero time."  as in "You have 12 minutes to rescue the pricness.. but you can stop at an inn and sleep and then go shopping to make sure you ahve the best armor and weapons, level up a couple times, rest again, get some more money to buy those potions, rest again and then come get me... and the princess won't be dead.

I fuckin hate when swords WAYYYY overpower guns (Example KOTOR 1 and 2) KOTOR would have been way better if they had balaced them.

Not FFVIII though, because that is a gunblade.

If the gun was fired on its own without the blade, you can guarantee it would do less damage as a normal slice with the blade.

Video games that seems to have skipped the beta testing phase.

Seriously, Titan Quest must've been released without any ever even playing the game.
They probably just compiled and started it and said "yeah the title screen is working let's rush it to the stores, we'll check for bugs later".

I hate games that advertise how many unique items they have, but you upgrade into the same set as everyone else at a particular level.

Meaning, at level 1 you use rusty iron, then at level 3 everyone upgrades to fine iron, etc... Whatever the case may be, no choices whatsoever. Alot of Korean MMO's seem to have this problem.

I'd rather a ton of unique choices for what I'm going to wear. EverQuest, Diablo series, and other games have done well on that.
