Some later games were annoying, Streetfighter 2 being a good example. But the same can be said about any format at the end of its life cycle.

But the big annoyance is the same today as it was back then bad design, unskippable logos, intros and bad streaming.

You know
(brrr click click) Codemasters present
(brr brr ) a SomeStudio game
(clickclick) (mod starts) MAGIC FOREST!
(nothing, drive not even loading, 10 seconds later, insert disk 2)

Today its
Sony logo.. (load for 0.5 seconds then wait wait wait, fade out)
BSA copy is stealing a car(load for 0.5 seconds then wait wait wait, fade out)
Codemasters...(load for 0.5 seconds then wait wait wait, fade out)
SomeStudio ... (load for 0.5 seconds then wait wait wait, fade out)
3rdPartyEngine (load for 0.5 seconds then wait wait wait, fade out)
3rdpartyPhysics (load for 0.5 seconds then wait wait wait, fade out)
BrilliantPreRenderMovie (hitbutton, hitbutton, finally fades out)
ActualStartScreen (CreateNew game, then wait wait wait, fade out)
NonSkippableTutorial (DoObviousActionOneAtaTime, finally get to game)
NonSkippableIngameCinematicIntro (hitbutton, hitbutton, finally fades out)

Yay I get control stuff!!

And don't get me started on Blu-ray or DVDs.. they don't even have anything to load.
