Which is more annoying in video games...:
 
A) Missions where you have to guide a defenseless person from point A to point B without them dying and they make little-to-no effort to defend themselves, avoid danger or stay close to you,

or

B) Timed missions that you have to make it thru flawlessly to reach the destination by the time the clock runs out, and even one second of delay kills any chance you have?

Me and my cousin were talking about it and I was just curious which one annoys the more hardcore gamers more :rant

I say B is more annoying. I actually happen to like missions which make you set up a gameplan and how you are going to play out the whole thing.

On the other hand, I hate missions where I have to make somewhere in time. When I'm playing a game, I want to enjoy everything. The landscape, guns, sounds etc. I want to be able to stop and look at stuff if I need to.

A is more annoying.

B is entirely in your control. You may lose a couple times first but you'll learn. Nothing you can do if it's just poorly scripted/programmed AI in A.

Yeah choice A came up cuz I was lookin for a cheap 1p game to play and i picked up Dead Rising 2 for like $15. So many people you have to lead thru 8 billion zombies and some of them just practically feed themselves to the zombies lol. Some do good and defend themselves...a few actually saved ME a couple times, but some are just f*ckin useless!

A.

There's nothing worse than a poorly programmed A.I character who runs round the level letting themselves get attacked or falling behind/ running off. It's infuriating.

B.

While it is tedious levels like that are generally do able.

Escort missions for sure. Extremely frustrating, especially when dealing with a game with poor AI.

Definitely A.

I enjoy trying to complete a mission in a certain time. Trying to figure out what to cut in order to save time is a lot better then escorting a retarded AI.

Don't play Dead Rising 1 then. Victims there are like retards compared with the sequel.
Fun games though.

As for the question, yeah, option A.

That's exactly what I first thought of when I saw choice A. Total retards.


NHL 12 is like that too. Put it on Allstar and your computer teammates always get beat to the puck, and fail to defend the front of the net. Pretty much like watching over and protecting useless people.

This.

I remember hate playing the fourth Silent Hill game, because after you go through each level, you had to escort your lady friend through the exact same level you just finished off, as well there are extra baddies in each level and the bitch did nothing to defend herself!

To top it all off, depending on how much damage she received during that time will dictact how fast/slow she will move in the final boss battle. If by some miracle chance she is barely hurt throughout the game, she will be possessed at this point and will walk very slowly on a catwalk towards her death, giving you time to finishing the boss. If she's battered and bruised, then that bitch will practically sprint towards the edge and there is no chance you will get a good ending. Damn that game! :banghead:
