Mesh's wall o' text reminded me of a few other annoying aspects of otherwise popular games.

Chrono Cross: S.S. Zebless
Legend of Mana: The gameplay.
Ocarina of Time: Poe hunting, getting Dampé to dig up that piece of heart.

Adding to yours --

C Cross: Both Zelbess visits sucked duck.. I also hate the way the game takes you to new locations.  "Let's go there!" "oh, hokay"
Legend of Mana: I honestly don't get a lot of the additional character building elements... placing places to get materials is odd and terribly explained.  Also, I don't know if it's the script or translation, but I feel whenever I play it I'm reading "Mrewn flandrest clertersal ung prowerdening" -- it looks english, but I have no idea what's being said half the time or why.
i have no ideas whats going on
Ocarina of Time: Dampé as well, but his grave chase.  I usually don't fuck it up, but it's just annoying to deal with.  Numerous parts of the shadow temple (mostly because I think the hover boots suck ass), and I hate trying to sneak through the Gerudo fortress.

I love men but that doesn't stop me from staring at this longer than I should have.
I think I'm more impressed that these over-sized breasts actually moving like breasts of that size might move.

90% of the time, traditional ATB bores the hell out of me too unless it can add some distinctive adjunct to make it better (Radiant Historia's turn swapping, FFX's instant non-turn-wasting-character-tap-outs, Trails in the Sky's minor-SRPG element, Baten Kaitos' ????? system)

None of those examples are ATB...

I usually lump atb and turn-based together... mah bad.

I'm the kinda guy who puts ATB on "Wait". I dislike being rushed.

This isn't my first replay of FF7 obviously, but I guess I never ever paid attention properly to this part. :P

When Cloud is talking about his first mission with Sephiroth, the mako reactor in Nibleheim. He visits his mother who says

"Let me get a good look at you."
"So handsome."
"Is this a Soldier uniform then?"

Cloud then says "Mom...I" and then there is a memory skip, that flash of white thing. I guess I just now noticed that this scene he confesses to his mother he never made it into Soldier and what she thinks is the Soldier uniform is just the average Shinra grunt uniform he's wearing.

There are a LOT of memory skips when he talks to his mother. Obviously he forces himself not to remember them because she would be talking about events in his own life, not his Zack persona.

Man I forgot about that completely.  THe really kick to the gut is when she finishes that memory-skip montage with something like "I'll always be your mother".

...that whole sequence really takes a long. ass. time.  But I'd be damned if it didn't set up the rest of the game nicely (especially come CLoud's big plot reveal).  Games today don't really bother with flashback sequences it feels.

I got 99 problems and a girl is one.

I couldn't bring myself to call her a bitch. But yeah. Girl problems.

Sorry Dagger.  If it helps, I'm a [self-proclaimed] cool chicka -- I swear they exist (Yoda and Mongoosey can vouch!  ...dunno if Grim would, Mesh would give me a speech about Magnolia Thunderpussy or whatever awesome thing he said that one time)!!  :D
Hope it gets better.

HAPS:
- FINISHED 4 PAPERS and TWO TESTS in last TWO WEEKS.  I DID IT!!!  Celebration Tradition: Geting naked and drinking hot chocolate
- Sewing!  Converted a t-shirt that cuts way too close to my neck into a v-neck... I also lost a needle somewhere... D:
- Drawing "secret picture". 
- Gamed a bit too
- Surprised boyfriend with a bicycle!!  He was happy.  I also got him that comfy gel crotch seat.... I love those things.

WHY THE FUCK ARE DAYS SO SHORT.

His overalls and crop cut hoodie still makes him a wank.

Not so sure about FFX-2 though, it basically ruins FFX's story.

Can you explain in how many ways X-2 is horrible? Because I really enjoyed my time with it (more so than X).
I wouldn't say that it is horrible, per se, but it does fuck up FFX's thematic elements. I thought story was one if FFX's biggest advantages and X-2 kind of messes that up retroactively due to everyone wanting a happy ending.

I agree with Ashton 100%. The finale of X was one of the ballsiest and most genuine in the series, and X-2 was like
Code:
'hur derp nope fayth magic'

If it helps, it takes the 100% to get him back in X-2 which is almost impossible without a guide.  And if you manage to achieve the 100% blind, you deserve a super duper nonsense ending.

I kinda would have preferred if Yuna "moved on".  Tidus was a giant wank anyways.

Battle: X-2 > X
"Plot": X > X-2
Music: X >>>> X-2
Characters: Any other game.
Controls: I've never understood how this is graded.

Three articles.  The first two detail the event, a teacher who had recently gotten a sex change was found killed.  The final article is an editorial by a writer who said the teacher should have been let go (written several months before her death).
