Worst Things About Video Games for the Latest Generations of Consoles

Why are some people turning retro in the video game matter? Well, It's not they are bad, but there are quite a lot of things that they are lacking while games from previous generations of consoles were excellent. This is the top ten of disadvantages. Obviously, there are exceptions. Oh, and if you don't like it, you know what? Truth hurts. But, aside graphics, we were better with previous games.

The Top Ten

1 Most Games Are One Player Only

Yeah kinda like Grand Theft Auto 5 and red dead redemption 2, could play with my friend online, but if thet were over they couldn't play with me on my same ps4 - trains45

If you say multiplayer, cool, I can play with anyone from anywhere on the world. BUT WHY CAN'T I PLAY WITH MY FRIEND AT HOME? It's nonsense! - keyson

I remember when I used to play with my friends at home. Now if I want to play with them they have to be playing with their own console in their homes

Granted the Xbox one can support up to eight remotes at once, but not many games have that many players.

2 Most New Features Are Paid

Yesterday you bought a game and played all of it as long as you like it. Now, They create games intended to take more money from your pockets. Skylanders? Disney Infinity? You've got the game, but you've got a three characters and if you like that one with the fire head, money! Want to pass through that door? Only that player you don't have can pass it. Money! Want to play in that battlefield or get a new gun for your character? The answer's simple. Money. - keyson

Just Dance 2014 you have to pay for the main song: Roar Katy perry - tohall01

You can't download them illegally. That Is The worst part

3 Gameplay

When I remember the infinite hours of amazing gameplay that games until 2005 gave us, I look at today's games and ask myself: "Where has the world gone? " - keyson

Disagree. Games today like Call of Duty are awesome,not stupid adventures of lolo crap

4 Sequels Are Almost Exactly As the Prequel

Although when sequels aren't exactly like the prequel, people tend to dislike the game because it's not a carbon copy.

This is VERY true in halo, Grand Theft Auto, and Call of Duty.

And I kinda agree that super Mario galaxy 2 is similar to the 1st. I kinda thought the 2nd one would have like, rainbow road galaxy - Harri666

Cough, cough, Nintendo, cough, cough

This is kind of tge case in Mario galaxy and galaxy 2

5 Lack of Originality

Yeah, I absolutely agree with this one! The first and second generation video games are most original - Adamshane1999

Those graphics look too cheesy. The seventh generation consoles are more diligent than those so called "hyper advanced" eighth generation consoles being sold to consumers worldwide. Xbox 360 is greater than Xbox One. PS3 is more superb than PS4. Wii is more cool than Wii U. Who knows what will happen to the 7th gen consoles later?

6 New Characters Are Not As Cool As the Ones Before

You can't compare the portal robots with Mario, Crash, Spyro, Sonic. Minecraft? Those cubic guys with bricks inside their heads? Hmm... And what's that guy from Little Big Planet? A sock with two buttons on his eyes and a zipper as tie? Please... - keyson

No, more accurately, they try to HARD to be cool. I just prefer the simpler, more charming characters like Mario or Kirby. - Garythesnail

Such as the dude from dead rising three he is horrible compared from the ones in 2 and the original

GLaDos, Ezio, Trevor, Midna, Pyro. - Skullkid755

7 We're Getting Tired of Zombies

This is mainly due to the success of zombie games such as The Walking Dead Game and The Las Of Us and other famed zombie games.

That's pretty much the only enemies you'll find nowadays in games

"Hey Joe, wanna play a zombie game? " - FluffyBanana

Zombies, zombies, and more zombies. ENOUGH WITH THE ZOMBIES ALREADY! - RiverClanRocks

8 Plenty of Games of Few Genres and Few Games of Plenty of Amazing Genres

The typical adventure with the special agent with a gun. Shooters. Zombies. And there are more coming out. - keyson

Enough shooters already please! - HeavyDonkeyKong

The ONLY thing I can think of that isn't fps games are Nintendo games, and sonic. - Harri666

9 Reboots From Existing Series Are Uglier and Uglier

What is that monster from the Skylanders series that took Spyro his name? - keyson

10 DRM

The Contenders

11 DLC

At least you don't always have to buy the dlc you don't want - trains45

"I don't want to buy a blue colored weapon! " (Evolve)

Nathanial Bandy: You have to pay for this! That's Bulls/// man!

EVERY game nowdays are stripping away their games for payable dlc. Mario kart 8 is adding 50% more for £11-£14. - Harri666

12 Every Consoles Lacks a Decent Intro to the Console


13 Most Times You Can't Use a Joystic or Play a Game From the Previous Console On the New One

When I wanted to play with 3 friends FIFA 14, the game let me select sides my PS2 controllers but didn't allow us to play I got so mad I turned my back on FIFA and went pack to play PES. - keyson

14 New "Original Games" Suck
15 Every First Person Shooter Ever Made

There are too many of these and they are very boring. It is just the same thing over and over again. The worst one is Fortnite because most of the players are immature 6 year olds.

DOOM, Halo, Quake, Half Life, Portal, Left 4 Dead, OverWatch. - Skullkid755

Way too many these days... Oh and to whoever tried to spell 'obsessed'... Did you say 'upsest'? UPSEST?!

Seriously, why are modern teenagers so upsest with those kind of games so much? THEY ARE JUST GAMES THAT YOU GET TO KILL PEOPLE IN, THERE IS NOTHING SPECIAL ABOUT THOSE KIND OF GAMES AT ALL!

16 Too Much Focus On Realism

At least the Last Of Us pulled this off! Right? - HeavyDonkeyKong

17 Fanboys

Genwunners are classic pokemon fanboys. - Skullkid755

Fans of gen 1 Pokémon are 90s kids, grew up when it started, Pokémon wouldn't even exist, grown out of Pokémon, possibly played Gold/Silver/Crystal, liked it but wont admit they did. Why don't you use Genwunners for Power Rangers I only watched Mighty Morphin Power Rangers after that I forgot about it.

18 Hour Long Updates

This does suck I have got a new game on wii u, ps3, and ps4 and I would have to wait sometimes for it to download witch can suck sometimes, it also can suck to wait for the update if it too long - trains45

Remember the ps2 days when you buy a game and get home, all you had to do was insert the disk and then you can play right away? And then the ps4 days when you buy a game, you need to update it and it takes 5 HOURS TO UPDATE IT!

19 Lack of Backwards Compatibility

What...Xbox One...

I would have a ps4 if it were backwards compatable - Harri666

Yeah it sucks that ps4 can't play any ps3, ps2 or ps1 disc games, i can buy digital ps2 games at least, but the ps3 is on playstation now, witch is a crappy software it lags and crashes, it be nice if ps4 could play discs from ps3, ps2, or ps1, or could let you buy ps3 and ps1 games on the store, or let you download previously purchased PS3 digital games on your ps4 - trains45

Xbox One, 3DS, Wii U. - Skullkid755

20 Fewer Games for Anyone Under 13

The last of us is made my naughty dog... Compare that to Jak and Daxter or Crash Bandicoot just why change what you make so much WHY

Not with Wii u.

21 When a Fun Local Mulitplayer Game Doesn't Have Online Multiplayer

I remember having nickelodeon kart racers with only local multiplayer no online I was disappointed I got bored of the the single player in like 2 days - trains45

22 They Are No Longer On Wii

I wish I could play all of my Wii games on the computer. I play NES games on 8bbit.com, and many other classic video games on the computer. The PC Master Race is the supreme video game hardware race. PlayStation & Xbox are overrated. Just look.
PlayStation (Original) -> PlayStation 2 -> PlayStation 3 -> PlayStation 4 (THE LATEST CONSOLE FROM SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT)
Sony Computer Entertainment? Sony, did you ever think about switching from console to PC? That would be a nice decision.
Xbox (Original) -> Xbox 360 -> Xbox One (Microsoft's latest console)
Maybe, Microsoft should stick with their computers & Windows Phones.
No. I don't want to play my Wii games on mobile devices like smart phones & tablets. That's stupid! Since I don't know how to play my Wii games on PC (yet), it's time to upgrade to the Wii U. It's a console that has a second screen for in case you don't want to play on the T.V.. That's awesome. T.V. these days suck. That's why Nintendo ...more

23 Way Too Easy
