55 things we hate about our favorite games

The very worst of the very best

To prove that point for our 4th Annual Week of Hate – the magical time each year when we wholeheartedly celebrate our cynicism – I’ve compiled a list of 55 fantastic games and game franchises, then focused only on what they did wrong. These are such glaring weaknesses and obvious missteps, in fact, that I’m confident you can recognize most if not all of them through a single symbolic image – no text necessary. Once you’ve tested your aptitude for hatred, keep it going in the comments by posting your own personal pet peeves.
