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

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 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?

5 Sequels Are Almost Exactly As the Prequel

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

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

What about some more innovation in Call of Duty?
Who wants to be a soldier every time...?
Lots if people just play the Multiplayer Mode.
Who cares for a good story which gives you
a great reason WHY YOU KILL PEOPLE in story mode.

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

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
