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

*Emergency meeting*
Other people: what?
6: I need to use bathroom
Me: really?
1: I can show you 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 other 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...

You're playing a game full of mature people who are at least 14, but then that one obnoxious 10 year old joins the server saying how he's gonna get everyone voted out because he's "savage", then ends up getting killed first and screams throught the entire game.

I haven't had a single game in Among Us where there's at least one idiot who's 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 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.

ALL THR TIME! So l would join this map with my boyfriend and red joins and asks me to be his girlfriend l said no and white (my boyfriend who l was on the phone with) goes crazy as hell. Red keeps telling me sexually stuff in the chat and the host would not ban him! I asked the host if they can ban red and they said why l said “THEY ARE SAYING SEXUALLY STUFF TO ME AND ME AND BOYFRIEND ARE TALKING ON THE PHONE” they said am l cheating and telling him who kills l said no me and him are on mute then the host kicks red and they come back and told me to go into med bay (l was imposter) so l did and l killed him. But yea all the time l will have someone join my map or someone else’s map and say sexually stuff to me.

2 People vote out someone just because of an accusation

I just want to tell another annoying thing:
7: *starts chasing me*
8: *follows 7*
Me: *calls meeting*
***Emergency Meeting***
Me: 7 was following me
7: I wanted to stick together
Me and mostly everyone else: *votes 7*
***SilverShadow was ejected***
8: *starts chasing me*
Me: *calls meeting
***Emergency Meeting***
Me: it's 8. she was following me
8: it's 3
***no one was ejected***
8: *starts following me again*
Me: *waits for emergency cooldown*
8: *kills 1 without me seeing*
Me: *reports*
***body found***
Me: It's 8 she killed 1
***no one was ejected***
8: *kills 2 and wins*
sad :(

and I hate when the imposter convinces the other person that you are the killer:
2: *starts chasing me*
Me: *calls emergency meeting before she kills me*
**Emergency meeting**
Me: it's 2. she was trying to kill me before I called the meeting
2: it's 6 (me)
Me: no it's you admit it.
4: it's 6:
**Shadow (me) was ejected**
**Betrayers win**
Me: whyyyy?

This should say something about the playerbase being really immature and annoying. Just write "(insert colour here) sus" and almost everyone will gang up on him. Imagine this was real life and people just threw out others into outer space because "they were sus". Although to be fair this is a game..., but it's no fun when you get voted out when you're innocent.

This happened to me once and I DID NOT appreciate it at all. When I finished all my tasked, someone did an emergency meeting and brown said “aY PuRpLe kIlL SoMeOnE AlReAdY” jokes on him, I didn’t have a kill option. But then everyone was trusting brown and voted me off. After the game I BANNED them because I’m an unfair moron. :D

3 No way to increase your chance to become impostor

Half of the time I log into Among Us, I do so to hope I can play a round as an impostor 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.

Na because then literally everyone would increase their chances and it would just be the same thing as we had with no increased chances.

I got imposter 3 TIMES in a row. just sayin

Disagreed. It’s way better if it’s random, that makes the game more unpredictable.

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 impostor 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 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.

It's pretty annoying when it happens. One time when I was an imposter I killed someone and the person who died told their brother then told everyone but even so, I wasn't voted out XD.

The game is supposed to be mysterious not obvious though I will admit that I have done this twice

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

So I was watching my brother playing among us and I saw black scan be 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 impostor 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 impostor*
*Few minutes later*
*Dead Body Reported*
Black: It's orange
Yellow: No, Black
Black: I Scannned!
Orange: Black!
Black: No!
*Black was not the imposter*

*Back in the lobby*'
Yellow: gg
Dark blue: I said black had scanned :(

This often happens to me.These people are either blind or dumb,or both.And it's even worse when you click play again and same people vote you again,even though you again proved you are not impostor.

So blue did scan and so did red and when we had a body report cyan says “blue killed in admin” me and red said “no blue was doing scan in med” cyan says “BLUE KILLED I SAW TRUST ME” Red said “are u dumb or something bc blue was doing scan me and black saw” cyan says “ITS BLUE! ITS BLUE” blue gets voted off and its says blue was not the imp so l call meeting and cyan see dumb cyan it wasn’t blue now we vote u. Guess what it was cyan! They self reported and blamed it on blue! (Poor blue)

which I do a bad job of doing

6 Red and cyan always being portrayed as ‘sus’

Dude come on you know that the imposter is chosen randomly but you still accuse these guys because of there color is am a constant victim of this

So l used to be red and l would always get the same thing, “Red sus” “red sus” even tho l am innocent. On this one map l got banned for being red just bc l was “sus.” LIKE COME ON! Is it illegal to be red or something?

Honestly, Purple and White are most sus for me. But I got everyone to vote red out even though I was the impostor for the 'memes'

I once was voted out because I was red.

7 People who call emergency meetings for no reason

So I was playing and some called a meeting. I then noticed the person's name was Tails (like Tails from sonic) and I knew why he had called it. He told everyone that there was a fake Tails in the server, which was me but my name was tailsthefox. Then he started following me.

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

Today I was in this server, and this guy, named chef, called an emergency meeting and he's like what should I make for lunch today. I was like what the heck dude

Why do people call emergency meetings for no reason? I swear I was in a game and within 2 minutes we had like 3 emergency meetings like what...? Why?

8 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.

So me and my sister were playing on this map and we just got o after the first round and red was the host and they would not start blue (my sis) said start brown (me) START OR I LEAVE! bc I said start 10 mins ago my sis leaves and so does everyone eles

Yeah this is obnoxious.
Me: Joins, is the 10th player.
Me in the chat: Start
Half the others: Start...
5 minutes later: START!
*just leaves game because the host is lazy as hell*

I hate it, but it doesn't happen much

9 When people take ages to vote

HAPPENS TO ME ALL THE TIME! Just this one person won't vote and we have 0secs on voting time so we have infant time and blue was the imp and they would not vote bc they were the imp and just sat there we voted to kick him

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 had to do something in the real world!

Sometimes it's annoying sometimes it's excusable.

Ugh these people are so annoying just vote for someone if you take too long then you look sus tbh

10 Card swiping

When l get on the map and see card swipe as the first task I think easy right? WRONG it keeps saying bad read

this be so stressful bc some could just come and kill you

The Newcomers

? Bad color scheme
? Closed-minded people
The Contenders
11 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!

Especially the downloading tasks.

I'm fine with the task.

12 Being a ghost isn't fun

If you get killed by an impostor, 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..., just like a normal ghost. It's no fun in the slightest and I hope ghosts get something more interesting to do in the future.

My Cousin Played This. He was Voted by all the people in among us. He was mad and said They All Cheated or saying they were hackers. It's a fun game.

When l finish my last task and l die there is nothing to do and I don't want to leave so l will just sit there talking to the other dead ghosts

I don't mind spectating other players, especially the dude who killed me, and chatting to the other ghosts is ok too I don't see why this is even mentioned on the list

13 Impostor kills someone then immediately reports it
14 Players who leave the game because they are not imposter

Well...ALL THE TIME! I got imp with 2 other people and 3 people leave and when people leave it counts as a kill for the impostor and we imps win and never killed anyone all because 1 more person left

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 impostors leave at the start and it is even MORE frustrating because losing 1 of 8 hurts, but losing 1 of 2 is a kick in the balls.

That's the most annoying thing for me. Usually, there's always between 1 to 3 players who leave the game, it makes the game easier for the imposter and less interesting.

This is stupid. People rage quit cause they ain't imposter. then the imposters win cause there are no crewmates left except me

15 The hackers are everywhere

OK how many encountered stupid sire sirol. He will hack if you don't hack. I've seen sire sirol like 5 times and I would hack him just so he feels the pain. I think this dude is eris loris. You need to ban a red dude called sire sirol now. Do it!

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.

So I joined this map and green was floating in the air, I was like ...?what? so l get imp and green calls meeting and says brown (me) is the imp so I said how and he said l can see your name in red there was only one imp bc the other one left and l get voted off and lose and surly l get dc

There are even many hackers in cubic sandbox, like this one time that there is a cubic sandbox user that steals the spot of host in whatever multiplayer game he enters

16 It's everywhere on the internet

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

I have found among uses 5! When I found the one and only 1 among uses

17 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. Skelder is has a sensible map layout and isn't too large.

Skeld is the only map anyone uses, Mira HQ is annoying when you keep having to go through decom, and I have played Polus like more than 50 times, and haven't memorized it

Among Us costs five dollars though.

They should add like two more maps.

18 Getting banned from a server for no reason

ALL THE TIME! I join this map 4 people and I said hi in the chat. Well...for some fricking reason saying hi in the chat got me banned and l was like what dude all I said was hi

I got banned for 1 finding the imposter and 2 I was wearing a ninja hat. I will always ban that idiot.

I got banned just because I caught the impostor red-handed. Why are people so salty?

I got banned because I wouldn't give them my personal information. What

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.

I hate it when that happens

I remeber one time I was crewmate and someone killed me at the start of the game when their kill cooldown went to 0

Once we started and l just started to walk to elec we did not have card swipe so l died before I made it into elec

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

You know, those who talk WAY too much, or talk is 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 - and that means there's a higher chance for the impostor to win. Literally once someone said "Who tf killed ma boi Blue? He was my bestie" and I voted him out without hesitation when in the end he was innocent. Like come on, who writes like that if you're innocent?

so one time I was playing and cyan call meeting and we said what cyan said l am the imposter and we vote cyan and it said cyan was not the imposter next round cyan calls meeting and says I am the imp and we voted kick on him because he was wasting time and not doing tasks by saying he was the imp when he was not

Dude you aren’t the imposter so work with the crew don’t pretend to be the imposter

I’ve been in a server where someone “admitted” that they were an impostor, when they actually weren’t.

21 Uncomfortable death scenes

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

I watch YouTubers play Among Us and the dead scenes are very very creepy and that is saying something because I watch gory adult shows with my parents

Lol. I have no problem with it.

I play betrayal.io and I do not like getting thrown into the ground

22 It's boring
23 Overused names

I have seen 2 other people with my name, shadow

yeah names like "imposter" or "crewmate"

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

You just have to buy it every time, when you have a new PC

It can be free on PC, all you need is BlueStacks.
