We bet you know all about these annoying video game trends.
Games are ever-changing. You never know what kind of concept they are going to come out with next, or how they are going to market it. One thing is absolutely for sure, if it makes money in the industry, game creators will copy it. This leads to some very annoying video game trends.
Here are our top ten annoying video game trends in the current market, just in time for the holidays.

10. Useless Teammates
Gamers know it falls on them to dominate the battlefield but when you’re saddled with teammates in a multiplayer game that just don’t cut it, it can be one of the most frustrating things in the world. Forcing very skilled players to play with people who expect to be carried is no fun. We like when people of the same skill are matched together.
9. Excessive Crafting
Crafting is fine and dandy, but when you have to make a piece for a piece for a piece for a bigger piece, and then use that bigger piece to craft another piece for an even bigger piece, it’s just plain annoying.
We’re sure you’ve all been there before, and it can make you reluctant to log into the game.
8. Greedy Merchants
Maybe you deserve more than 5 gold for the amazing purple item that you’re being forced to vendor. In-game merchants would vehemently disagree with you. They’re happy to hand out paltry sums for epic loot, and it’s simply infuriating.
Oh, and now the merchant is selling the item for a million gold. Enjoy those rage veins, gamers.
7. Unskippable Cutscenes
Now, don’t just go around willy-nilly skipping all the important cutscenes for the story; that’s a terrible idea. But, when you’ve faced off against UBERBOSS9000 for the umpteenth time, maybe being able to skip his starting cutscene would keep us from mocking the whole damn thing while it’s playing.
It’s also nice when you’ve played through the game already and there’s nothing to spoil. Just let us do our ridiculously complicated playthrough already.
6. Forced Grinding
If you’ve ever played anything resembling an MMORPG, you’re familiar with “the grind”. It’s the lovely part of the game where there’s nothing to do except put your head down and get that next level through sheer willpower alone.
Throw a fan a couple of side-quests or a dungeon, will you? I’m sick of killing these boars for XP.
