Others are far less serious but will still get under your skin.

Well, there's been a survey revealing what plagues gamers, and you'll probably be unsurprised by the results...

A new survey reveals what annoys gamers most

The survey, conducted by Westen Digital via YouGov, apparently showed that the biggest irritations a gamer can face are having to delete old games to install new ones and slow loading times.

Apparently 14% of those polled disliked having to delete games, and another 10% didn't like how much space those games took up in the first place.

This is the kind of issue that plagues people who spend a lot of time playing new games, and you'll know from first-hand experience that you'll often have to juggle games around just to install the next big CoD update.

It turns out that 22% of those polled also disliked the slow loading times we've had to deal with as we draw near to the end of this generation. Avengers is probably the biggest offender of this at the moment. We've all got smartphones now, and lord knows that less time spent on Twitter as games load would do us all a lot of good.

Will the PS5 and Xbox Series X fix these problems?

The key thing here is that both of these issues should, theoretically, be addressed with the next-gen of consoles.

Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X (and S) boast impressive processing speed and SSDs, which should eliminate many of the loading woes that we've all had to live with.

They also come with sizeable storage space. However, it's not quite that simple when it comes to storage.

Games are becoming larger and larger as textures get more complicated and graphics improve the file sizes increase. That means that if you're only planning on playing the big titles from the next-gen, you'll still need an extra SSD to be able to have more than a couple of games installed at once.
