The Top Ten

1 Game is too easy

The Kirby games belong here too. - cjWriter1997

Mario Series, Zelda Series, Pokémon Series, Chrono Trigger, etc - xandermartin98

2 Storyline arguably as deep as the Mariana Trench, with a morality system about as deep as the kiddie pool in the backyard

Undertale - xandermartin98

3 Game is focused far too much on graphical spectacle over actual gameplay

God Of War, Gears Of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Okami, Rayman Origins and Legends, Wind Waker, Uncharted, Call Of Duty, Half-Life 2, Super Mario Galaxy, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, etc - xandermartin98

4 The game not holding up nearly as well as some people claim

Ocarina Of Time, Final Fantasy VII, Super Mario Bros, Sonic Adventure, Super Mario 64, Crash Bandicoot 1, Resident Evil, etc - xandermartin98

The 3DS version of Ocarina of Time is just fine however. - cjWriter1997

The whole Kingdom Hearts series in a nutshell. I dislike KH with a passion.

5 Mindless button-mashing combat

Lego Star Wars, Kingdom Hearts, God Of War, etc - xandermartin98

6 The game thinking it's a lot funnier than it actually is

Borderlands 2, Mario & Luigi, Portal 2, Conker's Bad Fur Day, etc - xandermartin98

Every 8 bit platformer could fall under this. - cjWriter1997
