Things that ruined games for you

Achievements. 
Achievements made me not want to play nintendo wii and other games without a gamerscore attached to it. I spent 6 years getting a gamer score of 10,000 and gamer score and achievements ruined games for me because I don't find satisfaction in beating games that don't have them.

Let's see here...

AHoles that cheat online, scambots, aimbots, hackers, bug/glitch exploiters, micspammers, squeakers, squeakers, squeakers, squeakers, people impersonating known YouTubers, getting steamrolled, getting auto-balanced to the losing team at the last second of a round...

Oh yeah, and when TF2 crashes.

Over-abundant swearing. Don't get me wrong, I don't get offended by swearing and I swear but when a character says something along the lines of, "F*** that sh**, bi**. Get out before kick your f***ing ass!" I wonder why the developers even bothered writing dialogue if the characters were just going to swear like unintelligible babies the whole time.

Sadly, a lot of games these days have copious amounts of swearing in them that makes me want to put down the controller before the end of the first cutscene.

Thank you, I feel that way too. Especially in movies, I saw DeadPool, I thought the dialogue was stupid, there was no emphasis in swearing, because they say it every 10 seconds. The movie was good, but the talking was crap.

Games with cheating CPUs, take a look at pokemon. The computer's pokemon have moves that it cannot learn, have impossible stats, and can recover from moves that usually cannot be avoided. Guile in SF2, I spent so many quarters trying to beat his cheating ass, he can do his sonic boom kick without charging. Charging takes 2-3 seconds, but every charge character doesn't need to charge if they are a computer.

You know you're getting to be an oldie when

is your initial response to a thread like this. 

And seriously? With achievements and gamerscores? The thing that has absolutely no bearing on a game's quality and is indiciative of absolutely nothing about someone who has any set score? Have I been swimming in the glorious hot-springs native to the PC Gaming Master Race's Valhalla so long that I've missed utterly stupid trends like this holding sway over what games people buy and play - cos if so, holy hell I need to go back to the springs and continue enjoying masterpieces like Deserts of Kharak and Team Fortress. 

That commentary aside: I used to think that things like unbalanced multiplayer games would ruin things for me but the more and more I play, the more I realize that even the worst losses can be enjoyed if done with friends (as utterly saccharine as that statement may be.) I dunno, I may just be more of a social gamer than I originally pegged myself for. 

The prospect of having "bragging rights" in a game really only comes into play when you have someone to brag to, and even then; 2 years down the line nobody's really going to care about the minor things, it's really just the experience. Entire sections of my life just feel like blank splotches when I go back and think about them cos they were really just me playing games by my self or anonymously online in randoms. The parts that I do remember are times with the old SF-O guys on the TF2 server, back when I was being a monumental shithead. 

To tie this back loosely with the OP: the lack of a community to grow into or the presence of a toxic one is just so off-putting to me that I lose basically all interest. That, and games that lack a cooperative multiplayer component or even semi-compteitive elements to drag buddies into and kick their asses at. 

In short: toxicity in a community, or lack of ability for one to generate a community.

I need to get back into pc. My graphics card got fried(it was 400$....) and I haven't had the money in a while. It happened in December, right when I just got 4k gaming to work. 

But there are things that ruin games like computers in shooters, Shadowrun for Vista or Xbox 360 is a great example. The bots always lock onto you and their bullets never miss, while your guns(Even if they are in the crosshair), your bullets will move randomly, some go straight, and others don't.

I have weird taste, Shadowrun is my favorite fps. Whatever though.

Games that have terrible fanbases, such as Minecraft. That game was cool back in alpha, I played it alot because it was sandbox and I wanted to build some worlds such as Termina or Hyrule in it. But then when I made a server for the game, this youtuber made and autistic army called the "SkyArmy" or some stupid thing like that and those kids go on my server and say stupid things like "BUDDER" everytime I say gold or something. Fanbases like that ruin online games.

There is a difference between someone liking something and I don't like them for that and going into people's faces yelling "BUDDER".  I don't judge someone for being in a fanbase, they can do whatever they want, it doesn't affect me. But if someone logs onto a server and corrects you every 10 seconds and they keep quoting that fanbase like every 10 seconds, then it's a problem. Someone can be into something and it won't bother me, but if they keep shoving it in my face while i'm trying to play. Then it bothers me.

I totally agree. This whole thing about 'Who should be with who" is so annoying that I don't care about romance anymore. Although, the ones that are well thought up and take time to develop like real romance should is acceptable and enjoyable. Also, their over emphasis on this or anything else is also very irritating. Even I don't over emphasis on my fan fiction creation.

What does "camp" mean? Is it actual camping?

Actually, I do remember this one incident on perhaps the only online game I have ever played. It was an RPG/card game and it was really fun. I did trade with some players and the thing is in order for the trade to be complete, both traders need to select cards to trade away and both need to approve of the trade. Well, I came across someone one day and when I attempted to trade with him, he somehow selected some of MY cards that I didn't even put up for trade and closed the trade taking those cards without me approving of it. I have no idea how he did it but I have reason to believe that person was a hacker. I attempted to trade with him again to get back my cards and he took more of my cards again without my approval. I stopped playing that game just because of those terrible incidences.

I agree a lot with Scourge. Over the years playing competitive TF2, I've learned the importance of community, especially in multiplayer games. Team Fortress 2 as a whole is a small community, and its competitive community is even smaller. This means the community has to work together to be successful. For the most part, that happens: the community has crowd funded to send multiple teams to international LANs over the years, and has raised a lot of money for charities (Tip of the Hats). 

However, in all those great things, there are always people hidden in the community who are more interested in ruining things for everyone. I've personally been a victim of this. After organizing two local TF2 LANs and helping out with other community events, someone decided to make multiple videos attempting to ruin my reputation as a player and as a person in the community. For a while, the harassment was bad enough that I had seriously considered leaving the team I was on at the time, and not playing for a considerable while if at all again. 

Ignore the idiots, and find the people in the community you want to be with.

While this video pertains more to TF2, I still believe that it does a really great job of explaining the importance of LANs and community:

TF2 has always been marketed more as a casual game than a competitive one, as Valve has never sponsored a competitive event. Everything is community funded, and that's what helps make the community special. While the Smash community has historically been community-driven, in the past couple years, eSports orgs have really stepped up and supported the Smash competitive scene.

I was always into CounterStrike over TF classic and 2. I still go to LAN parties with classmates from school. It's either 1.6 or some other version where you can jump onto of a person or some weird crouch jump that will allow you to jump higher than normal, I have friends who do that so they hide in places and snipe in places where you can't normally get. Good thing about LAN parties is, you remember to never go to that C*nts house again.
