I voted "No new ideas - every game is a sequel, a remake, or a revamp". But I think this goes beyond just remakes and sequels - even new franchises seem to involve gameplay and mechanics that've already been done before.

Micros by far. I avoid any game that has them like plague.

DRM. Every new game is equipped with useless Denuvo that only affects legit customers.

Micros are fine to a point. If it gives unfair advantage, or purposefully locks aspects of a game behind a paywall (e.g. characters, weapons, etc.) I immediately drop or never even play the game. I prefer strictly cosmetic add-ons. It also depends a lot on what kind of game it is to begin with.

Not saying its impossible but eventually it does become hard to be original. I mean making a new IP is one thing and easy enough but makimg it a unique experience (that will also sell well) is a challenge at this point.

The stakes of failure are much higher now than they once were, games used to be more experimental and sought fresh ideas often when they didn't require nearly as much time and money to make. Indie developers are pretty much the only ones left who can afford to indulge in something new and different but major studios will try to play it as safe as possible.

This is true. I wonder why major studios havent hopped on thr indie bandwagon as in making cheaply made games just to test the waters on what kinds of things people would like. Basically throw out a 10-20 game and if it sells them be like "well if people loved that imagine the money we could make if we made it triple A"

The "Open world" fad.

I went with Microtransactions, but more specifically the push for games as a service. I feel these things inherently promote bad game design.

Microtransactions are not as bad as DRM.
