Top Ten Most Annoying Things When Playing Video Games Online

The Top Ten

1 Lag

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!

When playing online, there is one thing and one thing only that bothers me more than anything else. When you are doing good, and all of a sudden it lags, it messes up whatever you were doing at that time.

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!

It's such a pain it always happens unless your computer is built for it

2 Kids playing rated M games

Look... when I was a kid I wasn't allowed to play above my age, so why should you. If you think it's kinda funny or whatever... go play something else. You aren't cool or hard, so... go away.

Yeah I remember not being allowed to play halo 3 when I was about 10 years old, I was able to when I was about 14, if I was playing halo and call of duty or grand theft auto as a kid I sure would of got a no, I was allowed to about 14 years old

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'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.

This is a huge problem. I'm 13 but me and my friends arent the type to get the idea that the violent actions in games are alright to do in real life.

Same here, I can't believe people my age would actually scream and rage with their mic on. It's infuriating.

3 Hackers

I remember a hacker in mario kart ds online they had a battle track online the game thought it was a race, it was on pipe plaza I think, it also showed the place you were in a race

They cheat like hell and its not cool at all...

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!

There is acho no point in hackers because it just takes the fun out of the game and its just so ANNOYING!

4 Little kids that can't handle dying online


This is really annoying! I kill someone on a war game, like Base Wars, and they decide to be a complete kid and rage at me! That is what annoys the crap out of me! I feel like coming over there, and gouging their eyes out! " you HACKER" "f you noob" "u noob" "nice hacks" "F U! " "STOP KILLING ME" "GO TO HELL! " "spawnkillers" This is what pisses me the Hell off. All these damn kids rage over a kill they can't get over. Whoever does this, just go kill yourself.

Yeah I sure heard little kids raging when they died on call of duty and Grand Theft Auto 5, kinda annoying when they do

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.

5 Campers

My neighbor is a huge bot at Fortnite! All he does is camp and spam his AR at people!

I remember people camping in call of duty it super annoying sometimes

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

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

6 Playing music through the mic

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.

Yeah I remember once someone playing some weird Japanese music or something before

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.

If that happens to me and I really was having fun I would get vengeance you should get revenge

Agreed! I played Counter-strike Source, and in every server some 5 year old logs in, and plays some remix from the 80's man!
I can't concentrate!

7 Quitters

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 atleast wait till the end of the game and support your team.

That is sad, but is it also okay to quit to cool down for a while after getting frustrated because there is no reason to get mad over a game.

I seen someone rage quit before, I may of done it myself once or twice when I was younger

Ok some examples of this, and FYI I do not play rated M games so as I was saying LUIGI'S MANSION DARK MOONS multiplayer is fun but when there are only to people you have to take caution 70 percent of the time I played with one other person the second we started he just quit and I hate that also TETRIS AXIS you are playing a round and you end up dominating the round then they just quit why just be a good sport

QUITTERS should never had played the game in the first place if they were never going to finish the job!

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.

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.

Thats cheating like hell and its ANNOYING

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


9 People who abuses glitches

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

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

Hate hate hate it!

Yeah this annoying, like some glitches to cheat and stuff

10 People accusing you of hacking just because you won

7 year old kid playing Call of Duty: you HACKER you HACKED ME IMA HACK you AND HACK YOUR FAMILY AND HACK YOUR SCORE! That kid said the word "hack"5 times...

That a funny comment you said there. He must be really ticked off.

Yeah that happened to me one time on ROBLOX.
Somebody reported me just because I kept killing them in a shooting game.

These are even more annoying then hackers. They are so darn annoying that need a time out for 2 hours.

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.

The Contenders

11 People who curse every 5 seconds

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.

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.

It's not cool. Just annoying as heck.

Yeah this super annoying I think I have muted some people who where cursing like every few seconds

12 Losing connection

Yeah I lost connection the other day on black ops 2 in the middle of a match it dc everyone it was the lobby not my internet we all had to restart

13 Spawn killing

This the worst this happened once with host privileges I accidentally set my spawn point in the sky and changed to survival, I had to quicky change my mode back to creative then change it to night and sleep in my bed to fix my spawn point

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

Yes and in minecraft pros do it to protect there rich houses and you could only get saved if your a pro

People do that on roblox

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

Yeah this annoying I sometimes have to put my clothes away when playing games, I can't pause an online game like call of duty, if I playing myself I quit, but if I playing with friends then that different

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.

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

Some games keep going even if you're paused.

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

Yeah this super annoying when they do this, I just mute the person who keeps swearing, if I couldn't in the game I would go to another lobby

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...

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

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

17 Excessive trash talking

Yeah this sucks, I have had people keep trash taking before witch was annoying, and say I suck at the game or something, maybe once in awhile as a joke is fine, but too much would get super annoying

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.

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

DotA is 20% strategy, 80% trash talk.

18 People who kill you online

Depends on what game, it fine on call of duty, it kinda can get annoying on Grand Theft Auto 5 or minecraft, unless your playing mini games where you have to kill each other,

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

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

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.

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

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

20 Screeching fat British kids

This shouldn't even be an option, or it should say, "The person created this topic."

This is not racist. HOW IS THAT RACIST. DAMN people need to stop SJWing everything. Guys, lighten up and laugh.
i'm British and I found this funny

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

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!

21 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.

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

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.

22 Spammers

Yeah I know they won fair and square but I have trained my ass off just to be beat by a guy that does really easy moves over and over again

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

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.

Don't you just hate it when chat messages completely block your vision, and some jerk types

23 Spawn trappers

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

The worst...just the WORST.

What are spawn trappers?

There are so many people like this in cop n robbers

24 People who brag about thier skills

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)

no one gives a crap if you hae completed all the achievements or if you beat the game 100 times just stop talking and play the damn match.

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!

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

25 Rage Quitters

The only thing worse than a quitter is a rage quitter

Mostly noobs
