Games that are rather linear, I tend to get a lot more satisfaction from playing, knowing that there was only one way to play it. You either play it right or wrong.
Open world games annoy the hell out of me
i hate linear games. something more interactive is better. not mass effect "pick what you want to say" interactive, but something more open to someone's style of play. hmm... cant think of any non linear fps games. and thats why i hate them all. harharhar

If it was non-linear then it would just be an RPG. That's what Mass Effect really is...a FPS with strong RPG elements.

Yeah, Mass Effect took a lot from Deus Ex. Both are a couple of my favorite games ever.

I can't say I've ever been extremely disappointed by games, mostly because I always read up on reviews and such in advance, so I know what to expect.

Burnout Paradise:

I know Burnout Paradise got a good review, but I hate it.
I bought it, but knew it was going to be open world so I may not enjoy it as much.

I just find it boring. They've took the fun out of it for me, because they're aren't races how their were before, and theres only one city, which stays as day.

What was good about burnout were the different tracks and layouts, but they got rid of that. If they do that on the next game, I won't be buying at all.

I also know the physics were good, so they decided to slow down the camera every time a crash occured almost, and even though it was good at first, its incredibly stupid now.
Plus, Burnout Revenge was an online game, but it had a good single player element as well, whereas Burnout Paradise seems to strive for online play all the time, and to be honest, I like my single players a lot more, with maybe the odd connecting online to play now and again.

Need For Speed Most Wanted:

I didn't like that one at all. I bought the demo and liked it, so bought the game along with FEAR (which I loved) as a cheap deal, but didn't like the full game.

I still think it sucks. It screws my friend's computer so much. I can't stand it. XP is graphically better than vista imo.
