English term or phrase: cardinal sin
Definition from What Games Are:
A cardinal sin is a fuzzy term to describe a grievous mistake in game design which sinks a game completely.

Example sentence(s):
  • While we're sure many people will consider the game's shortness a cardinal sin, we'd still recommend you give it a try if you're a fan of '80s and '90s gaming, appreciate lush 2D artwork and desire an experience which firmly lodges itself in your consciousness – even if it doesn't last all that long. NintendoLife
  • And, while this is dangerously close to a gaming cardinal sin, it's also something that is understandable. When you can play through a beautiful experience, why would you slog through something that makes your eyes hurt after and hour and has bugs that could ruin your save? WhatCulture
  • Wasting space is not always a cardinal sin. It really depends on the menu being displayed. However, maps and quests, encyclopedias, books, statistics, and inventories generally need the full screen to be useful. Sapphire Nation

  • Les standards sont un moyen efficace pour permettre à plusieurs de travailler efficacement. Qu'il s'agisse de nommer vos composantes (variables, constantes, procédures, méthodes, fonctions, ...) ou d'utiliser certains outils (librairies, IDE, contrôles de versions,...) respectez ces normes. Je comprends que certaines fonctions portent en elles du code inutile que telle ou telle librairie (publique ou interne) peut avoir mais faites tout ce qui est raisonnable pour réutiliser ce code. Votre code que vous pourriez récrire prendrait plus de temps et serait probablement à déboguer contrairement à la librairie proposée - Quora
