    For me, a number of (or combination of) things may turn me away from picking up a game ever again:
    -A story that trips over itself with too many plot holes.
    -Lack of clarity towards certain quests.
    -Loooooooooooong loading times.
    -Constantly lagging frame rate.
    -Sudden difficulty spikes.
    -Glitches that make certain segments unplayable.
    -Fighting the same exact boss more than twice (Okami is an exception).
    -Fighting with the controls.
    -Fighting with the camera.
    -Areas that place restrictions on the player (Unless they're optional).
    -Unblock-able instant death attacks.
    -Fighting a boss that is too hard for all the reasons stated above.

    • Badly written characters
    • Lots of fetching quests along the lines of:
    PersonA: "Go get this from PersonB and I'll give you this"
    PersonB: "Oh, if you get me this from PersonC I'll give you this for PersonB"
    PersonC: "I need this thing from PersonD"
    Etc, etc.
    • Fanservice for fanservice sake.
    • Really annoying repetitive music that cant be turned off.
    • Timed fights. Timed things in general. I'm just really bad at them.

    It could really be a multitude of things. Usually, if the characters are just unlikable or boring I just can't get behind it. Sometimes games are just way toooooo sloooowwww for me, which isn't great since some games take a while to progress and I just can't get behind it.

    • Confusing gameplay/mechanics/puzzles
    • The game is either too easy, or too difficult
    • If the game is challenging, it's for all the wrong reasons (Bad level design, game-breaking glitches, etc.)
    • Flat or unlikable characters
    • Bad or forgettable OST
    • The game has no replay value
    • Uncomfortable or backwards controls, like using B to jump and A to attack
    The list could go on, but I consider these to be some of the strongest turnoffs for me... Overly complex puzzles made me throw down games like Paper Mario: Sticker Star before I even finished a chunk of them.

    • Horrible ost
    • Urking characters
    • A slow start to the "interesting story".
    • Bad resolution.
    • Having a character act a certain way without clarification.
    • A unclear ending or mechanic.
    There we go!

    Ridiculously/unnecessarily complex control schemes. Why yes I /love/ learning 10,000 button combinations to kill that one enemy.
    Sometimes sharp difficulty spikes turn me away, too, though if I still like the game I usually tend to take a break, then return and try to move past the point I'm stuck at.
