Top 10 Worst Things About Among Us

Among Us is one of the most recent viral video games, having been released in 2018, but got incredibly popular in 2020 due to the coronavirus and quarantine. I've been playing a lot of it and while it's fun, it's not without flaws. So with that being said here is the list.
The Top Ten
1 Immature players

I haven't had a single game in Among Us where there's not at least one idiot ruining the gameplay for everyone, whether it be not starting the game, calling emergency meetings for no reason, accusing others for no reason, etc. Not to mention how immature most people are. This is a murder mystery game where you play Death Note, but half of the people have no clue what they're even doing. It's annoying.

*Emergency meeting.*

Other people: What?
6: I need to use the bathroom.
Me: Really?
1: I can show you the bathroom.

*No one was ejected.*

10 SECONDS LATER

*Emergency meeting.*

Me: Now what?
6: The bathroom was dirty.
Me: Are you serious?
Me: *votes 6*
1: I can show you another bathroom.

See what I mean? Me and a bunch of other people wanted to vote 6 just because he was wasting our meetings. Thank God he stopped after that...

2 People vote out someone just because of an accusation

So, I was playing and Orange (who saw me scan) said, "Black (me) sus." I was like, "How? You saw me scan." Orange said in all caps, "BLACK SUS!" And I was like, "Dude, you, Red, and Green saw me scan." There were only me, Orange, Green, and Red left, yet for some reason, they all voted me. When it said OREO GIRL was not the imposter and Orange won, I went into the lobby and I was like, "Y'all are stupid as hell. Y'all saw me scan and still voted me off, dummies." I got so ticked off that I banned Orange because he kept saying things like, "I am so smart, y'all are so dumb," etc. Everyone said to ban him, and I was like, "You don't have to tell me twice."

3 No way to increase your chance to become impostor

Half of the time I log into Among Us, I do so hoping I can play a round as an imposter because it's the most fun part of the game. Unluckily, the chance of that actually happening is incredibly low because there are ten people in the server, and only one to three of them can be chosen depending on the server type.

4 The people who use discord or have a sibling in the game to find out who the imposter is then just tell everyone

*Inhales* Today, I met the most irritatingly annoying cheaters I've ever met. So Yellow was THE imposter and killed Dark Blue. We reported, and Black said it was Yellow (which was true). But this b*tch said, Yellow is my brother, so I'm not gonna vote him. She voted me, and so did her brother, while I voted Yellow and so did Black. Then it was a tie. I found Black's body, and then they voted me out! Sadly, they were the host, so they were in charge. These people must be banned!

That's cheating, but there isn't really anything to do against that. The game basically relies on people being mature and playing the game the way it's intended to be.

5 People voting you out even though you have confirmed to be safe

So, I was watching my brother play Among Us and I saw Black scan, but she got voted out because one of our dumb crewmates couldn't see that Orange was the Imposter. This is how everything went:

*Dead body reported*

Yellow: It's Dark Blue.
Dark Blue (my brother): Uh, no. It's Orange.
Yellow: How?
Black: Yes, it's Orange.
Dark Blue: Well, you are not the imposter, I am not the imposter, and Black scanned. So it's Orange!
Yellow: Vote Dark Blue.
Black: I'm voting Orange.
Dark Blue: I'm skipping.
Purple: Dark Blue.
Orange: Dark Blue.

*Dark Blue was not an imposter.*

*A few minutes later...*

*Dead body reported.*

Black: It's Orange.
Yellow: No, Black.
Black: I scanned!
Orange: Black!
Black: No!

*Black was not the imposter.*

*Back in the lobby.*

Yellow: GG.
Dark Blue: I said Black had scanned :(

6 Red and cyan always being portrayed as ‘sus’

So I used to be Red, and I would always get the same thing: "Red is sus," "Red is sus," even though I am innocent. On this one map, I got banned for being Red just because I was "sus." LIKE, COME ON! Is it illegal to be Red or something?

Cyan (me): Pink killed White and vented in electrical.
Orange: Red sus.

*Red was not the imposter.*

*Emergency meeting.*

Pink (imposter): Ngl, Cyan kinda sus.
Me: No, she vented and I scanned in front of Blue. Remember, Blue?
Blue: Yep.
Pink: But he's sus.

*Cyan was not the imposter.*

Orange: Red is sus.

"Orange was an Impostor. 1 Impostor Remains."

Pink (Impostor): Not gonna lie, Cyan is kinda sus.
Cyan: No, she vented, and I scanned in front of Blue. Remember, Blue?
Blue: Yep.
Pink: But he is sus.

"Pink was an Impostor. 0 Impostors Remain."

7 Card swiping

When I get on the map and see card swipe as the first task, I think, Easy, right? WRONG. It keeps saying, Bad read.

8 Impostor kills someone then immediately reports it
9 People who call emergency meetings for no reason

This happens often near the start of a game, and it sucks. There's nothing to report, and most people will just vote skip or vote out the annoyance. What's worse is that they often aren't even the imposter, so we have to vote out a crewmate, which adds a risk for the imposter to win because there's one less crewmate.

Why do people call emergency meetings for no reason? I swear, I was in a game and within two minutes, we had like three emergency meetings. Like, what...?

Today I was in this server, and this guy named Chef called an emergency meeting and said, What should I make for lunch today? I was like, What the heck, dude?

10 People who don't start a game

You know, when the ten people have joined a server but the owner just won't start? And then everyone leaves and more people come, but it still won't start! Like, why did you make the server then in the first place? Sure, you can always leave it without consequences at least, but it's still annoying.

Yeah, this is obnoxious.

Me: Joins as the 10th player.
Me in the chat: Start
Half the others: Start...
Five minutes later: START!

*Just leaves game because the host is lazy as hell*

If the host is waiting for 10 people, I understand that. But when the room is full, there's no excuse for stalling.

The Contenders
11 When people take ages to vote

Either it means they're impostors, or they're just being annoying for the sake of it. Or they're AFK. Dude, no one wants to wait for 90 seconds because you aren't voting. Just leave if you have to do something in the real world!

I hate it when people do this. Just skip if you're unsure.

Sometimes it's annoying, sometimes it's excusable.

12 Players who leave the game because they are not imposter

These people deserve to go die in a hole, though stereotyping all game-start leavers as crew is a silly thing to do. Plenty of imposters leave at the start, and it is even MORE frustrating because losing one of eight hurts, but losing one of two is a kick in the balls.

Well... ALL THE TIME! I got imposter with two other people, and three people leave. When people leave, it counts as a kill for the impostor, and we imps win without killing anyone - all because one more person left.

That's the most annoying thing for me. Usually, there's always between one to three players who leave the game. It makes the game easier for the impostor and less interesting.

13 It's everywhere on the internet

Well, I mean, the game just got popular. It will probably die out in a few months or so.

14 Being a ghost isn't fun

If you get killed by an imposter, all you can do is complete tasks, but who likes doing tasks? Apart from that, you can't report bodies, vote, or discuss with the others. It's no fun in the slightest, and I hope ghosts get something more interesting to do in the future.

I hate being a ghost. You can only chat with other ghosts. You should be able to participate in meetings.

Maybe give the ghosts something special to do. Also, you can chat while being a ghost.

15 The hackers are everywhere

I would be fine with hackers if 1: they made it obvious they were hacking before the game starts, and 2: the hacks aren't cheating, they're just spicing up the gameplay a bit. But none of them seem to do either, so all hackers suck basically.

There are even many hackers in Cubic Sandbox. Like this one time, there was a Cubic Sandbox user who stole the host spot in whatever multiplayer game he entered.

Once I was an imposter, and this other dude and I won straight away because he hacked. It was so annoying, especially because I was a crewmate like seven times after that.

16 There are only 3 maps

The only balanced one of these is Skeld, by the way. Mira HQ has way too many straight corridors, and Polus is better but is confusing. Skeld has a sensible map layout and isn't too large.

They're adding a fourth one! Very excited.

They should add like two more maps.

17 Getting banned from a server for no reason

Sometimes when I join a server, I get banned a few seconds later. When I look at the names, it seems to be because it's supposed to be a private server. Like, bruh, why did you make it public then?

ALL THE TIME! I join this map with four people and say hi in the chat. Well... for some freaking reason, saying hi in the chat got me banned, and I was like, What dude, all I said was hi.

I got banned for finding the impostor and wearing a ninja hat. I will always ban that idiot.

18 Doing tasks gets repetitive

What sets Among Us apart from other murder mystery games is that the civilians (crewmates) actually have something to do instead of just running around, and that is doing tasks on the map, whether it be connecting wires, flicking levers, etc. However, it gets incredibly dull after a while, and some tasks are painfully annoying, like the aforementioned connect the wires, Simon says, and downloading data.

I guess it's no longer being an actually good game that is the key to popularity. It's just being a simple and repetitive game that relies on online multiplayer. What a real shame, society!

19 Dying immediately

This happened to me in a server just a minute ago. I got killed by the impostor about 30 seconds after the game started.

This is why I'm scared of Electrical and Navigation. For some reason, the impostors always go there.

20 People who act like they are imposters but aren't

You know those who talk WAY too much or talk as if they are trying to sound nice but instead come off as suspicious? Those guys are really irritating because we vote them out, but it turns out they aren't imposters, which means there's a higher chance for the imposter to win. Literally, once someone said, "Who tf killed my boy Blue? He was my bestie." I voted him out without hesitation, but in the end, he was innocent. Like, come on, who writes like that if you're innocent?

I've been in a server where someone "admitted" that they were an impostor when they actually weren't.

21 It's boring
22 Uncomfortable death scenes

Not that big of a complaint, but some of the death scenes are kinda unsettling. Especially the one where the imposter basically shoots a spear through your helmet (which looks like an eye due to the art style). The others aren't as bad, but eh...

23 Overused names
24 The mobile version is free while you have to pay for the PC version
