 POLL: Worst "feature" in games this generation  
 
 
 
 If you could get rid of one of these, which one would you pick?
 by Neo7
 Always-on DRM (must be online to play a game)
 Constant Patching (releasing unfinished games)
 Free-to-Play when paying gives gameplay advantages
 In-game advertising (many iOS and Android games)
 On-Disc DLC (paying to unlock parts of the game you bought)

So along this generation of gaming we have seen many new concepts come into the gaming market usually revolving around revenue generation (and the one about updates in the poll) that have left sour tastes in a gamer's mouth. So lets take a poll to see which one is the one that gamers hated the most. If you can (and want), leave a post saying what you chose and why you picked it.

I voted for the first option because it effectually removes your ownership of the product

Except for possibly the in-game advertising I would get rid of all of them. But I chose the third option, because I think it needs to be more balanced between saying the game is F2P and then paying for stuff.

Put simply, I agree.

I say this^

But if I had to choose, I would have to say in-game advertizing because that's the only one that has the propensity to be so much worse as time goes on.

I chose always DRM.
IMO,it takes away from the single player experience.
Also,IMO,it takes away the single players right to cheat and/or use trainers.

Point and case D3.
