I have found this most recently in books where the female is playing hard to get for most of the book and it takes over the actual purpose of the storyline. Or you get to the end of a book feeling like nothing has been achieved in the story (thats the occasional down side to crime fiction I'm afraid, as much as I love crime fiction).

When a good show does not get a second series (Netflix im looking at you). I really enjoyed Dirk Gentlys detective agency and they only did one season. Im a massive Douglas Adams fan so it was really cool to see his characters on screen. Then nothing......now I have a sad face.

Episode 9: Your friend is really your enemy but they don't want to be your enemy... cry about it and then become your girl-type friend (hug partnner) which annoys the girls from episode 2-8.
"Every position must be held to the last man: there must be no retirement. With our backs to the wall and believing in the justice of our cause, each one of us must fight on to the end."

Earl Douglas Haig, Order to the British Army, 12 April 1918

So death, the most terrifying of ills, is nothing to us, since so long as we exist, death is not with us; but when death comes, then we do not exist. It does not then concern either the living or the dead, since the former it is not, and the latter are no more.

One that annoys me, is that they make shows, which are a blatant rip off of another series, but is literally the same storylines.

Silent Hills being canned. There was so much fucking potential shown in P.T and they pissed it away.

The fact that Team Silent got disbanded after SH4 and in turn causing the series to go to shit as they tried to westernise the game by handing the series over to western developers who went on to completely miss what made the series so great.

People crying for more sequels to games that should just end in peace. For example: Metal Gear. I get that people are still mad over what happened between Konami and Kojima. But I've come to accept that there's no more Metal Gear titles to come. The way the franchise was when it ended was pretty much perfect.  The series pretty much has a complete story. Solid Snake's story came to an end with MGS 4 and MGS V brought Big Boss' story full circle. The story is complete and Kojima is free to work on other projects, something he's been dying to do since MGS 2.
And it cracked inside,
It possessed and flayed my mind.
The lord of darkness takes my soul
And when I left the light it seemed so easy
Everything is out of control

Some very good ones.

I agree with Silent Hill. That demo was so freaking freaky, it deserved to have the game made. The whole franchise still gives m nightmares sometimes. But I'm a big chicken :haha:

I agree with the drawing things out too. There are plenty of things that now need to be put to rest.

Probably a very unpopular one but: Period Dramas. Really can't stand them, not sure why :lol: They just bore me. Never watched Downton Abbey. It's weird because my mum is suuuper into period dramas so not sure how I ended up the opposite :lol:

When a game gets a littletoopopular. It always drags in that special kind of DumDum that ruins games, or kids as well for that matter.

I'm all for games I like getting popular, but theres that certain amount of popularity where it starts to bring in the wrong people.

I get what you are saying, if a game gets too big the online community can get a little bad. Mind you its always funny listening to some one rage quit when you beat them lol
