Top Ten Most Annoying Things When Playing Video Games Online

The Top Ten
1 Lag

Whenever I'm playing Halo 4 with my brother online. Lag ruins the games for us, when I try to shoot someone in those vehicles, they lag right behind me (for some odd reason) and run me over! That or I'm aiming at someone, they're moving, and they glitch out and move somewhere else! That's when all the people in the lobby leave and it gets SO DAMN IRRITATING!

I hate both lag and hackers. But in Minecraft, those guys that fly are in creative (/gamemode 1) they are not hackers. Creative mode is part of the game anyways.

While lag on the other hand...ITS JUST SO ANNOYING! You can't take it away and its slows down ALL THE FUN! Even the creators could have problems fixing it.

Most of these can be controlled by simply muting the other players. Lag on the other hand you can't do anything even with a strong Internet connection. How many times have you just been doing great in a game online then it lags you out? ANNOYING AS HELL!

Lag... Lag my greatest enemy. I does not matter what game, a chance will be lag ruins everything. Most of the time lag kills me or makes me lose in any way. Sometimes the game freezes too. BUT the rarest of times happen that lag saves you. May the lag not be with you.

2 Kids playing rated M games

I'm, like twelve-thirteen. My parents won't let me play Earthbound because it is rated T. (I still main Ness and Lucas in smash four though, no rule against that.) I've played Call of Duty at my friend's place, and is boring to be honest. The only games I care for that are above my age are Red Dead Redemption ( my buddy and I play it his house), Earthbound, and Xenoblade Chronicles X, as well as the original Xenoblade.
And with the world we live in, none of the "inappropriate" things in games surprise me. Cursing? Hear it at school. Violence? Isis, war, terrorism. Blood? People get hurt, so what?

But the whole "kids with Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty" crap, yeah, that's gotta stop.

It's so frustrating how judgemental people are when it comes to kids playing M games. I am a kid who plays M games, but it's horrible to know that people my age will scream and cuss while their mics on. It's laughable, but it also ruins the whole experience. Also, people are judging kids who play M games as screaming, cussing idiots. I hear about people trying to be nice, but get bombarded with insults. People also think we only play Call of Duty when I myself play games like Uncharted, Battlefield and Borderlands. Call of Duty is nowhere near my most anticipated games list and never will be. So yeah, some of us are actually thoughtful and nice, not the short tempered 10 year old who only plays Call of Duty and screams every time he/she gets killed.

My ten year old neighbor plays Assassins Creed: Origins, and Batman: Arkham Knight, but his parents don't really know he does. And when I went to India this summer, my three year old cousins were watching Grand Theft Auto V videos. Luckily, their mom and my mom told them not to watch it. And I'm 14 I want to play Rainbow Six Siege and Call of Duty Black Ops 4, but I don't know if my parents will approve of it. But I don't complain too much because I play more Roblox and Fortnite.

I may be 12 but I here this a lot and I don't do it. I was playing a 1 on 1 on black ops 1 match with a 9-10 year old, I was beating him hard and he was a jerk at the start of the match saying "hey bruh I'm gonna kill ya so bad" ''I'm gonna 360 no-scope ya just to see how you like it" and a lot more. I said "i'd like to see you try" I could tell he was a kid due to his voice anyway "I'd like to see you try and me" 10 minutes later "DUDE PLEASE STOP" COME ON MAN YOU WERE OPEN" "YOU F! @#$ING HACKER" I yelled him to stop (he didn't) and won the match. little kids a NOT good gamers believe me they may know what there doing but they just find a game and say "OOHH I WANT IT" cause they heard about it or didn't in that matter. Anyway point I think made.

3 Hackers

In Roblox, there is a Hacker named Jaredvaldez4 and whenever I go on a game server, he follows me there like a ghost and when I turn back to see if he is behind me, he's not there at all... Than he starts to make scary noises that just creep me out... Boy, is he creepy! He hacked my friends, FloraOfHearts and girlcurly which makes me so mad!

On a Minecraft server mine time whenever I play infection, there are SO MANY hackers that fly and glide and sometimes they fly to other maps so no one can get them. Also they say that hacking is allowed! It makes me so mad!

Yeah! I'm with you guys! Why?
2.Ok, so what? I know it's a "bad influence" and all, but seriously! ITS JUST A GAME! (Yes, I'm 10 and I watch ssundee playing rated M games)
3.Hacking is just the worst. You can remove lag by clearing your memory, playing on single player, etc. But, Unless you're like the owner of any server so you can ban them, they're LIKE IMPOSSIBLE TO REMOVE! crap.
5.Pfft..Those kids are just like bronies, video game version. They're so irritating they act like they're cancer. DEAL WITH IT! (You guys don't know how annoying is my baby sister. Its like the whole fandom of FNAF and Call of Duty mixed together)
SO YEAH, That's why hackers ruin the game, guys, you don't need OP stuff, high stats or whatsoever go be cool. All you have to do is be yourself and many complainers will like you!

Well. I actually enjoy some hackers. I ran into a lobby for WaW zombies on Kino, and they hacked the map so we can fly around and use nukes whenever we want, with unlimited money and wallhacks. It was a fun experience quite so.

4 Little kids that can't handle dying online

I have been sniped by snipers, blown up by tanks, shot in the back and had a airplane or two land on me and I can handle it. It's a war or fighting game! You can't have a single game without being killed once! Whose who do survive a full game are maybe just super-skilled players and are not hackers.

So I was playing Factions MP on The Last of Us, and when this one kid was downed, he started screaming on the mic for help. Around the end of the match, he was downed, so I went to help him. Then this guy with a Molotov threw it at both of us (which we died, obviously) and he got mad, like saying that I'm stupid.

Yep, I hear this all the time, in multiple guenras of games. Either they scream at the top of there lungs, or call you a hacker. If they challenge you to a 1v1, you'll rek them and they'll rage quit, like they normally do. Too bad there's little we can do besides kicking or banning them.

This happened to me when I was beating a kid online on Dragon Ball Xenoverse. He never gave up and kept losing until I stop. He said I was scared of him... ,yeah. So... ,i beat him some more to teach him a lession and he FINALLY gave up. Do I feel bad for him? I would if he hasn't ran his mouth

5 Campers

In all honesty it would depend on what game you are playing. If you're playing a tactical shooter like Arma, or Counter Strike, then it's okay. But in games like Call of Duty it can get annoying when a fast paced arcade shooter turns into a "who can kill this guy so we can continue" game

I agree. The people who camp need to be kicked off the game if they are staying in one spot the entire game and no matter what you do, they wont die. Especially in Call of Duty.

In fortnite they added a bush disguise well they set of a bomb. It is so easy to go up to a player without them noticing and it must be the most annoying thing ever - Unnamed Google User Remade

Do you think the military just runs around? No, they stay in one spot a lot of the time, camping is a strategy, not a way to cheat

6 Playing music through the mic

Not only applying to gaming, but in real life too. At school, I always pass by kids playing their rap music on their speakers, and on the road, people driving by with the bass all the way up, in fact so high I can feel my organs vibrating, and playing their rap music really loudly. Can't we all accept not everyone wants to hear your music? I swear if this keeps up, I'm walking through school playing Dream Theater to prove the kids a point.

So annoying! I had a Minecraft party and my friend and his girl came. He put some 70's music for his girl and when I told him to turn it off, his girlfriend tells me to leaver the room and the server. When I say no anyway she tells me to just go outside for a minute or two.

Oh my gosh! My friends always playing music I don't like for his girlfriend so she dosen't get mad at him. He dosen't realise how load it is and if I ask him to turn it down his girlfriend (who hates me) will kick me from the party.

The worst is when someone has to sing along with all the songs, even after you've told them they're a terrible singer. I have a friend who sometimes does this. I avoid playing with him now.

7 Quitters

For example Grand Theft Auto 5 right? Your team is winning and the other team is losing but then people on the rival team starts to quit for no reason and then as the game goes on more people quit. You realize your team is about to win then suddenly the last person on the rival team quits and game over. Pretty annoying right?

I understand there are more importand things in life than video games that you could quit a game for. But, what annoys me is when people quit because they're team is losing. That's what a 3 year old would do. Don't cry about it and quit, just at least wait till the end of the game and support your team.

I hate it when this happens especially on Ranked, when I was playing Naruto Revolution I fought against this Kirin Sasuke with Shisui & Madara as supports his gamertag was Dimebag009 and I was AnimeGaming666 and I had Shisui with Anko & Tobi as supports he was going up in a Rank if he beat me. I was beating him so hard I tried by best to keep my greenbar but I didn't right when I was about to take out his tiny bit of health, he ragequitted

One time I played midnight club:la I raced someone with my Dodge and I was almost to the finish line but the person who I was racing with quit because I won. If you can't handle defeat then don't play online games.

8 Glitchers

I don't see the problem with Kids playing rated M games its up to the parents, I played god of war when I was like 14 so whats the big deal?

Plating music over the mic, easily solved MUTE THEM! That's all you have to do instead of moaning and complaining about it, just mute them.

Glitchers however ruin the game, I enjoy tf2 but when you get one person who wont die or places sentries in of the map areas so they cannot be destroyed is just annoying, PLAY THE GAME HOW IT SHOULD BE PLAYED! Cheating ruins the experience and people who do it are just sad.

Okay, music? No probably. Kids playing rated M games? Just ignore. Glitches and hackers? Totally the worst.
Glitchers and hackers just want to get everything op by codes. They are like "hey, I got a computer! Let's skip the tutorial and glitch this game instead!

MC hackers are just in creative mode. It makes sense of the flying and infinite lives and stuff since creative mode is part of Minecraft. But if you're using the duplication glitch, you're going to jail


When people use glitches I don't care. But, when people use glitches for never dieing or some crap ONLINE with other people...its annoying and cheap. If you can't play the game normally and you have to cheat to win then LEAVE.

Glitches can be funny sometimes (like in Skyrim), but when it messes something up or someone abuses glitches, it just becomes annoying.

9 People who abuses glitches

Who the hell added this list?
Don't the moderators on this site ever check racist lists before letting it through?

Like on bunch of games people abuse the 'duplication glitch' So frustrating earn it yourself

Yes I can camp under the prison( cops n robbers ) thanks to glitchy Minecraft

I'm trying to but I'm a slave to my hormones.

10 People accusing you of hacking just because you won

In roblox's top model, this girl named creeperhunter kept winning and getting first place all the time and I was always second just because she had VIP! So I went mad and than she'd go over to my model and say things like "ha ha couldn't beat me? " And "you know I'm better than you are I'm always first place" it's just so Annoying! That girl was cheating on me and I know it! So when I found out about this roblox hack website, I got because and hacked creeperhunter's account. She was so mad that she hacked me too and she got OBC! If this girl dares to come to your server, she'll ruin other people's chances of winning

It's also annoying if you are really good at the game and people still call you a hacker. There is a game on roblox called boys vs girls island wars and in that game I have over 5000 kills and I got 3000 of my kills without VIP. When I was recking a noob she told me to take of my VIP because they thought I was a hacker so I did and I stilled destroyed her. She kept calling me a hacker until she left the game.

This is so annoying! One day I was playing crappy ROBLOX and I won at Assassin! (Which for me is a cheap ripoff of Framed! ) and kept winning until a noob called me hacker for just winning in almost every round.

I was playing Roblox and this guy cep coming in my base trying to kill me and he fail every time and he fail because I killed him and said I was hacking and I cep saying NO! I don't know how to hack.

The Contenders
11 Losing connection
12 People who curse every 5 seconds

I once played a x10 server on tf2 and some guy on the other team said more curse words than I even knew EXISTED, I hope I get a brain implant that censors all curse words when I'm older.

It can be appropriate (and funny) to curse every once in a while, but players who do it every time they lose gets to be obnoxious.

Every once and a while its pretty funny to hear curse words online but when you have the need to say the f-bomb every 5 seconds then leave.

"If you need to swear every 5 seconds on something as simple as video games, do not go on scary rollercoasters. "

13 Spawn killing

Spawn killing is terrible in Minecraft because you can't spawn any where else

Take the admins on roblox for example, every time you spawn they just say kill person's name and you or everybody dies! Whenever I go to the morphs and weapons people get jealous or know you are going to go on a killing spree and say kill person's name and keep on doing it until you rage quit and they run away! The reason I quit roblox was also because of those God damn douchebags!

People do that on roblox

I like that in splatoon the other team can't go past the opponent's spawn point. However, people can camp there... and yeah.

14 Parents telling you to pause the game and do your chores

This one I relate to since I was in the middle of an online mission one time, except they told me to pause and I couldn't... The game would still go so I had to kill all enemies I had that would still harm me until I could relax and help my parents... by the way the game was an RPG.

Me: oh momm I can't pause it, just let me finish this game then I'll come
My mom: are you backtalking? Fine then no computer for a week
In my head: what!? I didn't do anything!

Mom you make me want to drink something called bleach, you can't pause in online games

Especially when fighting Ornstein and Smough

15 Microtransactions

YES! These are annoying as hell. This is why online games made 5-10 years ago are better than those of today.

16 Excessive swearing

I was playing Mad Paintball in Roblox and 2 people were cursing for nothing. I could not handle the swearing, so I tried hard to make them stop cursing but they continues swearing. So I quit the game now and I felt good w/o the swearers

I may be profane, but at least I try to control my profanity. People who swear so many times in a short span of time, on the other hand...

It gets lame when people say the f word over and over again

That’s on here already dudes and dudettes

17 Excessive trash talking

I know like calm down it's just a game.

DotA is 20% strategy, 80% trash talk.

A little bit of it is fine, as long as you back it up with skill. Too much and having no skill at a game makes you look like a complete idiot.

Trash talking in Minecraft pvp in a nutshell:
Some kid: umm.. You... Are... Weak! Hah!
Me: :kills them and grabs their diamond armor: NOW WHOS WEAK?!

18 People who kill you online

That’s kind of how games work but ok

According to this guy’s logic, you’re not supposed to kill anyone in Call of Duty multiplayer?

19 Squealer

If you go onto black ops 2 and play the following gamemodes: Search and Destroy, Gun Game, Sticks and Stones, Dominion, and Multiteam. You will know exactly what I mean.

When they die the noise made is louder than a jumbo jet

Kid on mic: Wait, what was that
Me: Headshots him, dead.

OOoOOhh, a Report button!
Report, report, report...

20 People who steal your kills

My brother and his best friend are forced to play squads in Fortnite with my obnoxious neighbor. He just steals their kills a lot and takes their good loot when they find them first or kill the people with them. Like once he was just camping and my brother and his best friend had to clutch up against a squad with the Meowscles Peow Peow Rifle, Midas Drum Gun, Brutus Minigun, purple heavy sniper and a gold pump. And my neighbor was just being a huge coward and hid away from the battle. Then he swooped in and stole everything except the Peow Peow Rifle. But luckily, my brother and his friend kicked my neighbor from the party and won.

I can understand being annoyed by individual kills that are stolen. But you know, I also hate it when people don't understand teamwork. Like, this one friend of mine always whines about the other people on our team 'taking all the kills'. Argh! It's called working together! It's really fun when you and your teammates are in sync. I know getting assist after assist gets old and it shouldn't happen all the time. But seriously, don't whine about someone getting a lot of kills if they are really good. That's only natural. It's ok to have the least amount of kills on your team as long as the whole team was working together. If you don't want to have to work with a team, then go play FFA. But be aware that stealing kills is an acceptable (and recommended) strategy in FFA. Stolen kills happen all the time and I'm fine with it, because that is how you win in FFA.
Honestly, I rarely feel I've had kills stolen from me when I'm playing team games. And that's not because I'm the one stealing ...more

This is a problem in Fortnite Team Rumble. Then again, I steal other peoples kills, so I guess I can’t complain.

So much work put in damaging the enemy just so some random teammate hopping in and taking all the credit

21 Screeching fat British kids

While you are saying we are rude, you are using fat stereotypes to do this, being rude. You hypocrites. Not all Americans are fat. (Though some are, I must admit) And all you guys think about is Texas. I swear, You guys seem to think that that is the only way we all are. Obese and overly patriotic. NEWS FLASH! Stereotypes are BAD! AND MOSTLY NOT TRUE!

Ahahaahahaa! I remember this awful game I used to play but I quit it four months ago, and I'm not even gonna say what it was, but there'd be people who'd always be like "hi mummy" or "are u my mum? " LOL

Why is it british kids? It could be american, australian, german, mexican, canadian, african, and nothing at all. Why did they specify it!

Who racist p r I c k put this on the list? Some Americans are much worse.

22 Spammers

This is very annoying in Fortnite! Last season in Chapter 2: Season 2 I kept dying to annoying kids that just sprayed me from close range with their AR or SMGs. Like why can't people just use a shotgun in a close range fight instead of relying on spray weapons?!

Spammers are annoying even in Naruto they're a pain in the ass but DBZ they're much more worse. Seriously I fought a Y.Kakashi Spammer in Revolution who spammed Chidori but I made a huge comeback and beat him with Sakura, same thing I did with Shisui against a Madara spammer. RB1 fought a scrubby spammer and I 2v5 him + he rage quit. RB2 team battle he tried to 1v5 me with Goku all by himself with no other characters in his team by repeating the same combo over and over and abuse Instant Transsmission but failed miserably, he beat my Meta-Cooler but not my SSJ2 Teen Gohan LOL.

Spam them back!

Playing Minecraft on a crap computer and your party leader spam warps you *OUT OF YOUR GAME* to the lobby they are in and you sitt there for the next 10 minutes trying to move but you cant6

23 Spawn trappers

In Overwatch, one of the heroes is Mei, and once of her abilities is to build ice walls. One time, a Mei trapped the whole team in the spawn for quite some time, and of course, the other team took over the objectives and won. That was the game I dropped from gold to silver. R.I.P. sadical being in a good rank 2018-2018

This is the laziest tactic of killing. Going to the opponents' spans point and continuously killing them? Stupid.

Saem mineplex dominate spawn trappers are the worst. We lost because they raided our whole spawn

Sometimes ok on a private server with friends but on dominate on mineplex I HATE IT

24 People who brag about thier skills

I have more than 13k kills on my account on Base Wars on ROBLOX, but I don't brag, but every time someone who has more kills than I do, they say "prepare to die laugh out loud" This is what pisses me off! I feel like hacking into their account and watch them cry that they get banned!

I love Star Trek Online, but listening to the in-game chat at the major starbases like Sol and DS9 is enough to make me puke: guys bragging and obsessing over their ships and skills like so many teenagers bragging about their cars. Didn't Mr. Data say something like that? ;o)

Cool no one cares if your donald trump rich parents bought you mega V.I.P. its just showing that your a noob and can't play a game without cheats because your lazy

It isn't only this that makes me angry. It gets me angry when people make fun of you for your lack of skill. I had this happen on World of Warcraft.

25 Rage Quitters

The only thing worse than a quitter is a rage quitter
