Sometimes there are series or even whole genres of games that just make you seethe with rage at the mere thought of them. If you could rid the world of any genre of game (or series), what would it be and why? For me it would be platformers. With very few exceptions they're just holdovers of archaic gameplay, riddled with trial and error and the only difficulty coming from sheer frustration. There's rarely any type of story or cohesion - you're just jumping through random disjointed landscapes without a clear purpose, collecting trivial trinkets just for the sake of collecting them. That type of gameplay worked back in the early years of gaming, but gaming has evolved past that point now.
