Things I Hate: Pikmin (Gamecube Original)

As a Gamecube fan who started his support for the device before the system came out, I remember Pikmin quite well. It was one of the early launch games for the system, but it was certainly not for everyone.

It was Nintendo’s first real take at Real-Time-Strategy games, but with a simpler Nintendo twist. You controlled a little space man named Captain Olimar and you could control this little Pikmin creatures to help you rebuild your ship.

Everything about the game is good, except one major flaw. A 3 day time limit or it’s game over. That might not sound like a huge deal, but it rushes the player. I for one can’t tolerate time limits. I do hear they fixed that problem in the 2nd game and in the Wii re-release.
