What's Your Most Frustrating Video Game Moment Ever?? - Page 9

post #81 of 131
Pretty much any vehicle or flying race in Just Cause 2 made me mad. I know it was made for a controller but they could have done a better job of keyboard implementation. On a keyboard a lot of the cars became almost undrivable at high speeds. Tap the A or D key and go into a spin. Flying planes was such a pita too.

Oh, and any time control prompts come up outside of a training level too, especially when they obscure some part of the screen. Press space to jump? Really? Wow, I wouldn't have known that if you hadn't told me the last 50 times! kookoo.gif


Especially annoying are the obvious console port prompts; a blue circle with the word "crouch" written in it is not too helpful when none of my keys are blue or have the word "crouch" written on them. Looking at you AC2... mad.gif

Has to be homeworld 2. There a mission quite early on you have to take over a ship, then defend it. Think it was only like mission 5 but i never passed it:/

God of War 3: The 3-headed hound you have to fight after flying BACK UP THE CHAIN (which is the 2nd most frustrating moment in video games for me) ... on Titan. Did they REALLY have to add goat-men? Ugh... eff that fight.

I dread how difficult that fight would be on Chaos.


Although some WoW Raid bosses like Nefarion and Kalecgos were pretty frustrating. Kalecgos mostly because my guild, while good, had a hard time focusing on what to do. My GM routinely blew his top, lol. We eventually beat them though... I never did beat that hound on Titan.

Also Onyxia. I remember doing that fight for the first time... WITH threat meters. Before threat meters, that fight was like bashing your head against a wall until nothing was left but a bloody stump. Definitely one of the most frustrating fights in WoW back in the day.

OH GOD

Those damn water temples where always such a hassle, I particular hated the one in Twilight Princess. Especially the Boss, for the sole fact that I have a fear of Deep Dark water.

I had a checkpoint glitch in uncharted 3 which caused me to die literally seconds after I spawned due to being spawned infront of 5 guys with no cover...... I proceeded to break my controller and bought another same day tongue.gif

That and probably the steam achievement "The kids Xmas level" where you had to complete 5 missions in one playthrough for the achievement. I didn't get it, I spent so much time since the achievement came out trying to do it.

Which part? I beat God of War 2 on the 2nd hardest diffuclty (God?) and while I do remember some tough parts, I didn't have a lot of trouble beating it. God of War 3 is the one that gets my goat on the harder difficulties.


Actually, I take all of these back, the most frustrating moment in gaming I have ever had was trying to put myself through this countless times:


I love the game to death, but my God, that was the most grueling thing I've ever been through in a game. Never did get the Big Boss Emblem because of that section... I could probably go back and do it now since I have the Solar Gun... but the first section of the 2nd chapter is pretty much hell as well.

And if you're wondering, yes, it really is as difficult as the video makes it look. More difficult, even.

*Blows into NES game cart as hard as I can to make it work*

It still happens to GameBoy cartridges as well. My Pokemon saves repeatedly erased themselves.

Some of the Ninja Gaiden boss fights...

Plus quite a few of the regular enemies (Black spider ninjas, oh and I remember ghost fish being a pita if you aren't super careful)

Man that game made me mad... But then the most annoying games are those that you play over and over for some reason, even though you're going to burst a blood vessel in your face

F-Zero - hated losing to the pink car
Road Rash - bastards never tried to actually race!
Jurassic Park - I forget what it was that annoyed me about that game... maybe the spitting dudes

Definitely agree with the Madden comment - that ***** annoys me to no end
