1UP, only slightly more credible than “7-10” IGN, has compiled a list of dumb gaming trends that annoy it so, so much. Among them, pay-to-unlock features (see The Godfather for Xbox 360), fixed save points (the ribbons in Resident Evil, for example) and unskippable cut scenes aka the whole of the Final Fantasy series from VII on.
Remember when games were an innocent distraction for your Saturday afternoon?
