10 biggest video game sins: Day one DLC, unskippable cutscenes, Doritos, and more

Escort Missions

You know, it can be hard enough taking care of yourself, so why do we have to worry about protecting NPCs? It's a gameplay aspect that always elicits groans from gamers.

You're surrounded by Ganados, they're coming at you from every direction, and you've only got several rounds left. Then you hear that annoying, shriek "HELLPPP!!!! LEONNNNN!!!!" You want to ignore her and just let the Ganados carry her away, but you'll get a Game Over if you do that.

Fortunately, not all escort missions are bad. Bioshock Infinite did a great job with Elizabeth by allowing her to be an incredibly useful partner who does not require your protection. Hell, she'll even toss you some ammo or salts!

Biggest offenders: Resident Evil 4 and GoldenEye
