Default Rampant Games - Puzzles and RPGs

March 14th, 2011, 16:35
I liked puzzles when games were more simple, because they added a complexity to the game that would not have been there otherwise, but now they tend to annoy me. There were a few in either BG2 or IWD2 that drove me up a wall (can't remember which game it was now). I don't mind having to figure out how to do something, so say encountering an obstacle in the form of a puzzle that I have to solve with in the game, but I need at least a nudge in the right direction.

The ones I really hated where were the correct sequence was in the pattern on a wall or the ground, especially if it were in a different room. Since 99.99% of the time the walls and ground are just decoration, it never registered to look for the clues there until I searched for an answer online. I find that the whole experience just really takes me out of my 'game zone' unless it is well incorporated into the dialogue or action of the game.
