Pet Peeves in Language in Games?
« on: August 17, 2013, 01:25:22 AM »
Anyone have any pet peeves (or general complaints) about the language they see in different games? I'm curious to hear from people.

e.g. Grammar problems, spelling, wrong word used, too simple language, too long to read, etc. Whatever you have noticed.

Games, newspapers, and just about every piece of software with a "spell checker" — I don't do magic.

unrelated, but I was most amused to note the schoolkid in front of me on the bus this morning working on a page titled 'English Assingment'...

Big sign, "National Ejucation Week" on the side of an elementary school a few years back... and me without a camera...

Probably the kid was just assing about.
