I have a RL friend who does the texting equivalent of "[Character] is standing there, come talk to him!" tags and it's starting to really bug me.

Like, he'll text: "There's a game for the Vita."

And I'm expected to respond — which is fine, that's how conversations work, but I mean. He doesn't even give straight answers after that. I have to drag it out of him.

Him: "There's a game for the Vita."
Me: "What is it?"
Him: "An RPG."
Me: "What's it called?"
Him: "Title Fantasy: The RPG."
Me: "Sounds cool."
Him: "It doesn't look that good though."
Me: "Oh, that's too bad."
Him: "But it's for the Vita."

And at this point, I'm like... get to your point, dude. Why do I have to pull responses from you when you're the one who wanted to talk about it in the first place? Why couldn't you have just said the name of the game and your impression of it right off the bat so we could just go from there? Why are we circling the topic instead of diving right into it?

He just sent me another 'bait' text and I'm currently letting it sit there to see if he's gonna follow it up or if he expects me to draaaaag it out of him again. I realize this is petty as hell, but it's been happening so often lately and I'm too irritated to bother with it right now.

I don't think it's petty not to respond to texts that annoy you.

You could say something like just "Okay" in response to those pointless texts, it gets the message across without being confrontational.
