We've all been there - you'll be listening to a game being announced, getting all pumped up and ready to go, excited and intrigued, and then they go ahead and do it...

They announce a feature or a detail that immediately makes you dislike it.

It can be a petty, minor, personal thing, or it can be a sweeping issue with an entire genre. It can be a game's length, or even that you play as a racist cuttlefish. Hell, whatever it is, it's put you off the game entirely.

So, what is it for you? Those instant gaming turn-offs that put you off the whole game?

For me, it can be either of these, but much worse if paired:

PROCEDURALLY GENERATED

and/or

ROGUELIKE

I find them to be different sides of the same coin - the former in terms of art, and the latter in terms of design.

For real.

There are just certain things in the game nobody wants. Like stinky socks, nobody likes stinky socks.
