Top 10 Most Annoying Things About Video Games and Gaming

The Top Ten
1 Bad Controls

Sonic 06 would have been an utterly amazing Sonic game if the controls were good.

Everyone likes good controls.

2 Unskippable Cutscenes

Again, Splatoon! Every time, you get two people telling you which stages you have for that one day. I only like cutscenes that tell a story, for example, Sonic.

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

I like cutscenes in general, but two or three times of seeing them is enough. After that, I like to skip, unless I can't.

3 Long Loading Screens

I know right, like what the hell, hurry up. I didn't buy the game just to watch a loading screen.

LEGO City Undercover has a really long loading screen, but it's still a good game.

LEGO City Undercover. Great game though.

4 Lag

Congrats on getting your list featured, EvilEyedWarHawk / Wolfenstein Follower!

Lag is annoying, but it's a bit normal for me when I'm playing Minecraft JE on my MacBook Air 2020 (Intel).

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

5 Microtransactions

The problem with modern games, even Mario.

Yet Rockstar gets away with it.

6 No End Reward
7 Numbered Series
8 Bugs

I sometimes like bugs. They can be really interesting.

9 Crashes

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!

I was playing RDR2 once, and I was about to kill someone, and the game crashed.

10 Music You Can't Silence

Yeah, some music options, like turning it off, are not available. Sometimes you can get addicted to the music and want it, but it is sometimes very annoying!

I wanted to mute the music on Sonic 2 Hill Top Zone, but I couldn't. I had to mute the TV instead.

The Contenders
11 Interactive Cutscenes
12 Over-Saturation Due to Too Many Sequels
13 Video Game Rip-Offs

Yes, ugh. These "good game developers" are just scamming you!

14 Overhyped Games

Minecraft and Fortnite. Need I say more?

15 Long Respawn Time

I hate this! I had this one game where it took like 30 seconds to respawn, and the map was so tiny you could cross it in 10.

16 Overpriced DLC

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

17 Frame Rate Drops
18 Can’t Skip the Credits

I was finishing Assassin's Creed Rogue, and when I got to the credits, it took 20 minutes for them to finish. I didn't even get anything from sitting there and watching the credits.

They should have put an option for us to skip the credits.

Dear Video Gaming Companies,

Not everyone wants to sit down and watch the credits for so long!

That's why I almost always speed up credits on emulators.

19 Game Freezing
20 A.I. Brains
21 Having Nothing to Do After Finishing the Game
22 Bad Graphics with 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?

Most Call of Duty Wii games have this.

23 Good Graphics with Bad Gameplay

Remember when Call of Duty was good?

24 Ads
25 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!

You never run into this problem with Sega games!
