Worst Things About Tomodachi Life

The Top Ten
1 Miis break up

I added my parents in the game and my mom wanted to break up with my dad. Luckily I saved before, so I exited the game many times before they eventually agreed to keep the relationship going. Now they are happily married and have the best relationship out of all my islanders! But the story would have been different if I didn't save my game before my mom popped the question...

As soon as I see something like, "Things aren't looking too good for me and [sweetheart]," I know they're breaking up. About 95% of the time a mii says something like that, they will break up. It's really painful to watch all of that progress be taken away from not just the miis, but the player.

Even when it's a couple you WANTED to break up, the whole sequence is extremely sad.

2 Your Miis least favorite food is your favorite food in real life

This whole problem would have been EASILY solved if the game let you pick what foods you like and don't like are, at the start of the game!

Just think about if my Mii hated Ice cream? I wish we could at least pick what 3 of are favorite foods are!

Or vice versa. My Mii's "super all time favorite" is calamari; in reality I can't stand the stuff.

3 Your Mii wants to marry the same person over and over again

Some of my cousin's miis keep wanting to marry each other. Even worse, they always want to get married to a mii that is there sibling in real life.

I know I had a couple breaks up and one gets with somebody else and the other person asks them out AGAIN!

And it's his sister!

4 The "sneeze minigame"

The worst thing about this is that it counts as a "problem" and not a mini-game, so you can't even get a useless prize to sell at the pawn shop. I at least want that...

This is the worst thing about the entire game and it's entirely pointless, seeing as it hardly makes their level go up either.

5 Babies

The female babies look like men and the male Miis always have female features. And then they wont stop crying. What did the parents even DO to make the baby cry? Fun Fact: You can ignore the game for a week and the baby will be all grown up.

Here's a reason why I hate babies, in reality, babies don't cry a lot everyday. but in Tomodachi Life, they became nothing but a creature that cries a lot, I don't want to hear another phone call that's about a baby again, this is why I disabled baby settings

Just like say it's 2:29 PM And you see the NEW! sign on the food mart. you buy that then you leave the place then a parent calls you for the baby but you want to go to the afternoon market and you say no thanks to take care of the baby. Now after that It's 2:30 PM And now the event is BBQ. This is what make people REALLY mad.

6 The games

This has always been the worst feature in the game for me. Not only do the miis constantly ask to play a game with you, but the games themselves are stupid. (some of them are even present on this list!) And if you lose, the miis give you either tissues or toilet paper symbolically telling you to "cry about it." It's not funny; it's just the game trying to get you to hate your miis. What's worse? Well sometimes, out of nowhere, the miis will say, "Since you're here, let's play a game!" Seriously? I did not come here to play a game where if I lose, you make a tasteless jab at me. But what happens when you win? Well the awards aren't good either; they're just treasures that are only good for selling at the pawn shop and that's it. Bottom line, I highly recommend ignoring the miis with the green playing icon. The games are really not worth your time.

This is one of the least annoying problems on my list, if not the least, because I just mostly ignore them if they want to play anyway, though it is a bit annoying if they say, "Seeing as your here, let's play!" but I just ignore anyways, and you should all ignore if the Miis want to play with you.

7 The Treasures being nearly pointless

All the treasures do is give you money by selling them at the pawn shop. That's it. I just wish you could do more with them like decorating a mii's room for example.

The extra cash is nice, but most treasures are worth almost nothing. (Like tissue box and toilet paper.) Those "treasures" don't even have uses. Smh :/

Aside from selling them to the Pawn Shop, or having your Mii offer it to another Mii, they have no use what so ever! If you could at least use them to decorate the apartment or other parts of the Island, they would've had some ACTUAL use!

8 Miis asking you to treat them better then everyone else
9 They won't stop trying to confess to taken Miis

If you don't let them confess, they will get sad.
If you let them confess, they will most likely be rejected, which will make them sad.

They're gonna be sad either way, which is really annoying.

This is so annoying especially if you want two certain miis together and don't want to break them up for some side chick.

Once they try to confess to a Mii that's taken, you know you're screwed. There's no way out of the sadness.

10 Your Mii wants a specific food and you don't have it in your inventory

This is extremely annoying. One of my miis was like "I wAnT a sTuFfEd cAbBaGe rOLL" (first of all, ew) and I did not have one. Fast forward to night time and she has a dream about it. Like what the hell Nintendo.

It is annoying, but you can get rid of it by giving them a different food.

One time, my Mii asked for cornflakes, but it wasn't available at the supermarket, then the next day, the cornflakes were available but they didn't want it anymore

The Contenders
11 Your crushes Mii marries your best friend's Mii

This didn't happen to me, but it almost happened with my crushes mii and my sisters mii. Good thing a different mii liked my sister and they got married instead.

Yeah, this has happened twice now. First around 2 years ago where Joseph married Megan but then broke up. And then where Joseph became special someone's with Evie (my current crush). Damn you Joseph!

I made my super mega ultra crush in the game and soon my best friend in the game MARRIED HIM!

12 It gets repetitive after a while

This is probably the biggest problem with most video games.

13 Fights

I feel like the fights only serve to "add tension" but they become boring when you realize that the process is, for the most part, the same for every fight. Mii says they had a fight, calm them down with a music box or bath, they go to apologize to the mii they had a fight with, they make up. And it's much worse when they don't make up.

When not only are two Miis in a fight but it's so bad they're surrounded by an orange flame aura and while they'll take baths if offered it won't help. No, orange aura=you have to find a third party to mediate, and that person may be asleep or not home. Not to mention having to check everyone else who has a social problem bubble hoping that's the mediator rather than someone just asking how you feel about their marriage or in a fight of their own.

If you're sleeping or in a long activity and one Mii fights just when you open it and doesn't make up with the other Mii, MAKE SURE YOU DON'T SAVE THE GAME IF THE MIIS DON'T MAKE UP! And if the Mii has an aura, RESTART IT IMMIDIATELY!
This was a help comment but this is now an opinion. Fights happen rarely in my point of view but happen at least once/twice a day. I either make sure I save the game before solving the problem if it happened while I was watching the Miis. Only once did a mii not want to forgive and it made me very stressed, but that was before I was forced to discover a cheat to avoid this.

14 Enforced heteronormativity

While it IS possible to have gay/lesbian couples, the game EXPECTS your miis to be straight. It doesn't feel like everyone is involved.

Nintendo got something against bi and homo? come on if it allowed any mii despite gender to become sweethearts I wouldn't have to delete so many of my guys just to make sure everyone can possibly have a relationship.

Exactly. Like, I'm hella gay, and having my mii forced into a heterosexual relationship makes her seem less like me :/
They should at least allow a toggle on and off for it like they do with babies

15 Going to sleep, sometimes way too early

I'm usually super busy during the day doing school work, sports, and the like so I usually like to get my game on after dark. I really enjoy this game, but I'm pretty much forced to wait for the weekend to play because most of my miis are asleep at fricking 9 pm. :/

This is the worst game ever made for insomniacs. It's the middle of the night, you can't sleep, so you want to play the game. But then all your Miis are asleep and can't be awakened. Meanwhile, you have other things to do during the day and forget about playing. Repeat for several days running.

I know sleep is a vital thing but this basically just forces you to not play the game anymore until Real life morning, annoying as heck.

16 Keep changing clothes without you noticing

This sucks if you have miis based off of games, movies, etc. You give them the clothing they would wear in their specific franchise, only for them to swap to something completely different.

This is annoying because I don't want them to so that is why I never buy my islanders clothes. Also, there should be an option to sell clothes and hats so they won't have them anymore and they won't chang it automatically. I noticed that this happens more often when the weather it's colder in the island.

So you have a Mii that's a specific character. You got them the closest outfit (and hat/hair accessory if applicable) to their actual one the game offers. They beg for new clothes so often, you finally give them whatever other outfit to shut them up. Now every login, you have to change them out of it.

17 Can only have 100 residents

It may not seem like that big a deal, especially since you can actually have 100 Miis in your 3DS MiiMaker as well, but what about when someone has a kid you actually wouldn't mind keeping on as a resident? That still takes one of those 100 slots.

18 Having fights daily if you have maximum islanders

This is annoying and they fight for things that don't even matter like a teddy bear, food, items etc. especially if they have a lot of friends. How can you check to see who has more friends? Check the popularity rating on the Rankings Board to see who has the most friends. The higher, the more friends and the lower the less friends they have to other islanders. This is annoying and I am already used to it but I wish I wasn't and I get angry when there are three fights on my island.

This gets extremely repetitive and it's made even worse if you already hated the fights up to this point.

19 Relationships don't always go the way you want them to

Two people you want to marry each other and have kids end up not even acknowledging each other's existence, a couple you regret allowing to date/marry stays together, and a couple you did want or at least eventually warmed to breaks up.

20 The stupid proposal mini game!

I'm better at the proposal mini game now, but back in my noob days I was constantly failing and had hardly any married couples!

I always lose! The thoughts sometimes go to the proposer but quickly switch to something else! I might press NOW! on John but then they're talking about CROSSAINTS!

When I wanted Lan and Zelda to get married, Lan or Zelda Talk about something else!

21 They can be spoiled brats

In the Vs match if you lose, the mii cheats the get more points than you!

22 Constant requests for new clothes, new hats, and new interiors

This is literally so annoying if I'm perfectly happy with the miis current things and don't want to spend money for things I don't even want to use just so the darn request goes away.

My Mii requests nothing but new clothes, hats and interiors, they probably likely to hate anything they wear

Why do miis keep doing that!

23 They want new hats all the time

What's super annoying is the hat requests that come from Miis who were already wearing them even in the MiiMaker. You want hats to wear over your hat, really?

24 The "Catch" minigame

I can't even throw the disc and if I keep throwing to one mii the other person will get super mad. It's so annoying

This is why I don't visit the Miis who have green problems, they always drop the treasure that doesn't worth a lot of money, and stop wasting our time, their gossips are literally predictable

A mii says "You lose!" if you don't catch it!

25 Mii babies never stop crying

Honestly whenever I rock the baby once, Its happy! I feel as if I found the rhythm that it likes, but then the next day, it's completely different. Also whenever I tickle it (when it's like 1 or 2 days old) it acts like I'm beating it with a bat!
