Primarily the whole card collection aspect - just dislike any game where items/magic is handled in that fashion. I find it breaks immersion, for me. I realize it is just my own quirk but there it is, rational or irrational.

"One thing we can tell you, however, is that the game will in part be inspired by trading card games. Donít misunderstand, however. Thorwalla is not a card game! Instead, it functions much more like a traditional RPG with turn-based combat. The difference will be in that the cards represent, supplement and enhance the charactersí abilities, much in the way traditional character attributes do."
I have always disliked this type of mechanism - whether it be runes, cards, or gems that create your character or magic spells. I like things innate.

I just dislike the mechanism for a game as whole.
