Bad camera angles. i mean the ones that cause frequent loss of life

Jesus Christ Almighty.

i'm sure we've all played a game with a shit camera, ruins the entire game. i don't think it happens as much anymore, but back on N64 and PS1 when we first made the transition to 3D environments, it was enough to make a child put a gun to his brains

Gex, i'm lookin at you

games still stuggle with camara angles, just as bad as before. shadow of collosus for example REALLY fucked me around, espeically when your fighting 400 feet bosses, constantly having to move the cam yourself.

they should put rear-view mirror option or something. or make it more wide angle so the cam doesnt have to move as much. or in the future it shouldnt be as much of a problem because everyone will have multiple wrap-around tv's where you can just move your head instead and the whole environment is around you.

Sometimes i find annoying on RPGs games sidequest bosses that have ridiculously high amount of HP by the millions and have powerful attacks that can wipeout your entire cast on one shot plus inflicting status ailments - FFXII had one of those bastards

Because there's more annoying things in games than shitty camera angles

Anyone remember the shitty cameras in the sonic adventure games on the dreamcast?

I've been playing the original Rayman recently and the camera in that pisses me off. Its not exactly the angle as its a side scroller but you can hardly see whats coming next as its so zoomed in.

There was this section where i had to jump onto this flower pad that falls almost right after you land on it forcing you to make a quick move, i then had to keep jumping from pad to pad till i finally reached some solid land (which i couldnt see when i jumped on the first pad). As soon i land on it though an enemy from off screen comes in to view knocking me back off the ledge to my death.

WTF!? I hate Rayman! }:T

Ninja Gaiden had some shitty camera angles though, and the game was hard enough as it is.
