Biggest Pet Peeves About Video Games

Most of the time, us gamers encounter something annoying in a video game. This list is about the things that can piss off a gamer.

The Top Ten


Lag is cool. But cool means cold. And cold means evil. So lag is evil.

Tell me about it, my laptop is pretty old at this point and lag is very common


and then when it stops lagging you're dead


Well, there's an upside. If there are in-app purchases forced into your face in a game, it usually means the game was free.

We all know who loves these.

Ruined Gaming

The problem with modern games, even Mario.

Unskippable Cutscenes

One time on Pokemon sun, my 3DS was about to run out of battery and I had to go through this cutscene. I was out!

If you played Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon you know what I mean by useless and unneeded cutscenes!

(cough) Summons in Final Fantasy VII, for example (dear God)

Sometimes founded in mario kart 7

Long Loading Screens

Lego city undercover. Great game though...

Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition on PSP.

half the games I play are this

*cough* Fortnite *cough*


I sometimes like bugs. They can be really interesting.

some bugs are really funny though.

La ferme

Frame Rate Drops
Over-Saturation Due to Too Many Sequels
Video Game Rip-Offs

Yes. Ugh. These "good game developers" are just scamming ya!

Immature Kids Playing Violent Video Games

Parents should know by thus point that kids under 13 or 17 shouldn't even be playing Call of Duty or Mortal Kombat.

As long as the kids don't do anything in those games in real life. It's not that bad. - B1ueNew

I remember this 4 year old at Woody's. He said there was this game he liked to play, and I had no idea what he was talking about, so I asked him, is it innaproprite. And he said "very, lots of blood and weapons." Legend says he is playing Where the dead go to die : The game, right now.

Fortnite has become a social event for 9 year olds now

My mom is very strict about these things

Bad Controls

Everyone likes good controls.

The Contenders

Bad Graphics but Good Gameplay

I know you people are probably going to make the generic "Nintendo has bad graphics" comment...

but honestly, have you SEEN how insanely stylish both they AND many of their affiliates make their games art-wise?

Ah the 80s and 90s.
I didn't even grow up in the 80s but they had good games.

Most Call of Duty Wii games have this.

This is totally fine for me

Good Graphics but Bad Gameplay

Remember when Call of Duty was good?

It's still good though in my opinion. Just not as good as it used to be. - B1ueNew

This is why I love Nintendo!

Madden much?


Bad Fandoms

Especially Fortnite! It's so overrated!

All nintendo games have this.

Really? Are you sure you're not only speaking of the BAD parts of the fandom? Every fandom has one of these. - Marxcute19

Take any popular video games in this case.

Take Fortnite for example.

Overhyped Games

Any modern Call of Duty game.

Super Metroid and the Prime Trilogy, for example

Fortnite in a nutshekl

Fortnite is dumb


I was playing rdr2 once, and I was about to kill someone and the game crashed.

Very annoying

My game crashed once in Overwatch when I beat my high score of kills. I had 50 in that round, and my saved high score was 45. The game wasn't even over either!

Overrated Games

Ahem "Fortnite" cough cough

Cough fortnite cough

Cough Overwatch cough Minecraft cough cough Zelda cough Mario cough


I've already paid for the game itself! Now if I want to play more I have to buy more?

Paradox: its free real estate

Unless it's fortnite


When There’s a Waterfall Without Anything Behind It

Most annoying thing in the world. Even more annoying than that dog.

I bet one is better than you, dogs are cute!


Bad Soundtracks

I've never had to deal with this, since I mostly play nintendo games.

Hong Kong 97 my friends, it still haunts me to this day!


Holy cow this is why we go deaf

Tryhards are meh in my opinion.
I don't like them; I don't hate them

Some people aren't good at games so they have to try hard... except when I try, I’m still not very good.

Not Being Able to Sprint

This is so awful for me because I love sprinting everywhere and if I can’t sprint it bugs me.

Platforming in Non-Platforming Games

Who knew jumping in games not built around it would be so difficult

Bed of Chaos from Dark Souls

Oh dear God, I'm already getting Vietnam-esque flashbacks of the first Half-Life

Have Nothing to Do After Finishing 100% the Game

Uh... that's because you finished 100% of the game


They’re SO ANNOYING! They never even get punished even if the game says hackers will get banned.

Making the game impossible or difficult to play at times.
