Most Infuriating Things In Certain Video Games

Now I dont hate all these games, i like some of them, but every video game has their flaws. Feel free to add your flaws with certain games.

The Top Ten

1 Being online-only (Fallout 76)

Whatever happened to having a complete game? - htoutlaws2012

I'm poor. No pirate, no play it.

I do not know what I hate anymore, these games are full online or the companies owners them do not add offline content in them! - firerockbird

I know that
1. There are bugs and no NPCs
2. This wasn't supposed to be Fallout 5, but New Vegas wasn't Fallout 4.
The online-only setting is my main complaint. - codgtamk34

2 Can't pause the game (Resident Evil 6)

People said to just shut off my internet and even doing that still wouldn't pause the game. Also awful controls. - codgtamk34

3 Was rushed (Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly)

This game could've been a masterpiece if the developers had taken their time. 25 levels and so much more. Then only 9 came out and bugs and long loading times. So it was very meh. - codgtamk34

Nothing is worse than a rushed game. They're always the most overhyped games and are always dissapointing. i.e. fallout 76.

4 No checkpoints (Jak 2)

Now I liked Jak 2. Cool weapons, good characters and the Grand Theft Auto feeling, but this game lacks checkpoints in missions. I guess you can call this a challenge. - codgtamk34

No checkpoints? Man... - darthvadern

1 GUY!? NO CONTINUES!?! - Avgn

5 Horrid control scheme (Batman Forever)
6 So repetitive (Grand Theft Auto Online)

I know video games are repetitive, but Grand Theft Auto Online crosses the line of being the most repetitive game in the world. Other players killing you, losing money, unable to redo missions, vehicles getting stuck. - codgtamk34

So much for it being less boring than Mario Kart

Me: starts up match
Grand Theft Auto player: *kills me already. - RadioHead03

I'd rather play Mario Kart or, heck, even Candyland to be honest.

7 Time limits (Superman 64)

And you have to fly through rings over and over...and the game is glitchy as can could make a separate top 10 list of all Superman 64's problems.

8 So boring (Minecraft)

Disagree. I don't think Minecraft is boring at all if I'm being honest here - DarkBoi-X

Minecraft takes both creativity and ambition. If you don't have either one, yes, Minecraft is boring. - Gamefreak23788

The only people who find this game boring have no artistic talent.

Damn Fortnite Players

9 Extreme difficulty (Super Mario Bros. the Lost Levels)

Two words: Git good. - TheAwesomeBowser

If you're not a Mario player probably. - codgtamk34

10 Having to unlock 66 characters out of 74 not counting DLC (Super Smash Bros Ultimate)

You can unlock them with a special mode in Games And More, where you can battle any character you want unlocked. It can only take you a few hours to get them all, but it's still ridiculous. Why not have the original 12 as starters?

I was so ready to kick butt with my girl Peach on day one, but it was a WEEK before I even saw her! No, I did not find a new main among who I'd been stuck with in the meantime; in fact I have never played as any of them ever again.

STOP SAYING "GIT GOOD" (or "GIT good")! 66 is WAY too many characters to keep hidden! I should NOT have been forced to play as FOX first thing because who I really wanted was unavailable!

You literally had to do the same thing in Brawl, so why is this a problem now? Unlike Brawl, you get a chance to get a rematch with the character you lost to instead of randomly having to trigger unlocking another character.

The Newcomers

? Having to Collect Enough Arrowheads to Afford the Mental Cobweb Duster (Psychonauts)
? Impatient Stages (Super Mario 3D Land and World)

The Contenders

11 Unskippable cutscenes (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots)

I just wanna break my controller

12 The ending (Red Dead Redemption)

Another game I love, but I despise the ending. John spends the first 80% of the game hunting down his former gang members because Edgar Ross took away his family. And after he kills the gang members, Edgar lets John begin a new life. But then he raids John's farm and kills him. This shows Edgar was too lazy to do the damn work himself. As said before, love the game aside from that. - codgtamk34

Well, that's part of what makes Red Dead Redemption special and memorable. It's heartbreaking to see, but it makes for the perfect story. - RogerMcBaloney

13 Getting Sent To Detention (Baldi's Basics In Education and Learning)
14 “It’s no use” (Sonic 2006)

Reminds me of the game grumps episode.

Speaking of the evil Sonic '06, please put "Female disempowerment" on this list!

Take this! - RadioHead03

15 The Game Crashes as Soon as You Go Shopping After You've Unlocked the Second Kitchen (What's Cooking with Jamie Oliver)

Ah yes, a serious crash that they didn't fix prior to releasing the game. You can choose to go shopping at any time, but attempting to do so after unlocking the second kitchen will crash the game. I even had two copies of the game and both did the same thing. - SamHalls2015

16 Camera angle (Sonic the Hedgehog 2006)

Almost everything about Sonic 06 is bad

17 Crappy jumpscares (Five Nights at Freddy's)

They're not even scary. - codgtamk34

They r not crappy they r terrifying I had nightmares 4 weeks after seeing Freddy’s jumpscare so shut up

I agree. I dunno why people say they’re so scary. I mean, if they catch you off guard, they’re a bit scary, but most of the time they aren’t at all.

18 Getting Arrested (Yandere Simulator)
19 Radiant quests (Fallout 4)

I like Fallout 4, but I hate those unnecessary settlement quests. What's worse is they don't ask if you want to do them, they automatically assign them to you. Oh and after a while, you end up doing the same quests over and over again. Aside from this, fantastic game. - codgtamk34

20 Paying real money for more characters (Skylanders)

The definition of a cash grab... - codgtamk34

21 Microtransactions (Star Wars Battlefront II)

Remember in late 2017 when this was a huge controversy. - DarkBoi-X

It’s EA what would you expect - Granton8ter2

Man, screw EA. - TheAwesomeBowser

Some games spam them in your face and all cost REAL $$$$$$$$$$$$ (EA) the microtransactions are normally stuff that you got is not worth it in the end most likely roblox gamepasses,path of exile,idle planet miner,mineplex,hypixel (chests and skyblock),roblox games that cost robux (also accesories) and merging games on google play/bluestacks but there is one game witch took this too far COOKING FEVER if you would like stuff like gems then if you buy them you loose all your real $$$$$$$$ the creators are scammers
also in the game there is a slot machine and they programmed it so you can not get gems the game itself is super good also it puts microtransactions up your ass every microsecond like gift boxes and sometimes pvz does it too

22 Having to Play with Playtime (Baldi's Basics In Education and Learning)
23 Forgetting to collect more than one of the game’s hidden ribbons for the safer Sephiroth fight (Final Fantasy VII)
24 Futuristic setting (Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare)

I don't hate this game like everyone else. It's not great either. The futuristic setting did piss a lot of people off. - codgtamk34

25 Only Being Able to Have One Serving of Each Custom Recipe You Make ( What's Cooking with Jamie Oliver)
26 Only 4 boards (Super Mario Party)

Seriously that's just lazy. Mario Party: Star Rush had 15 boards, so why divide the number with three minus one? Worst thing is that the boards aren't that special or fun compared to games like Mario Party 7 or Mario Party 10 - darthvadern

Nathaniel Bandy triggered

Why 4 boards? It could of been 7. - RadioHead03

LOL what's wrong with that? People are just butthurt the garbage car is gone and that's just sad. - TheAwesomeBowser

27 Getting Pepper Sprayed (Yandere Simulator)
28 Bad voice acting (Mighty No. 9)
29 Impossible to beat without save states (Battletoads)
30 Having to Wait Three Days to Get to Level 21 (Candy Crush Saga)
31 No campaign (Call of Duty: Black Ops 4)

Agreed. This decision saved me 60 dollars. I did play it with a friend and hated it. - codgtamk34

32 Bottomless pit deaths due to enemy knockback (Ninja Gaiden NES)
33 Nigh - impossible to Beat Expert CPU in Certain Minigames (Mario Party DS)
34 Nigh-impossible time trials (Crash N-Sane Trilogy)
35 Long loading screens (Fortnite)

Fortnite sucks. Its copying other games like apex legends

I know, this refused me to play the game. - Userguy44

36 Lack Of Online Play (Super Smash Bros. Melee)

Well, online gaming was still new at the time, so it would be hard to implement. - myusernameisthis

Not a big deal. This was way before online gaming became huge - codgtamk34

Damn brawl fans this game was released 2001 HOW WOULD.U. EXPECT ONLINE PLAY? - Xomanxy

37 Flame Hyenard boss fight (Mega Man X7)

His (English) voice actor is just plain unbearable - xandermartin98


38 Bayonetta (Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS)

Sadly not improved for Ultimate, where she can't even be avoided by not downloading.

Despite all the patches and alleged "nerfing", a CPU-controlled her overuses her stupid counterattack, and online human players of her are no better about this.

39 No separate battle courses (Mario Kart 8)

If you wanted to play in battle mode, you have to use one of the already existing tracks.

40 The Riki Assist Trophy appearing (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

Causes random, and I do mean random, effects that can throw a battle completely out of whack. Worse, you can't kill it even in Ultimate with an Assist Killer Spirit.

41 Hard to kill zombies (Resident Evil 2)

I keep shooting them in the HEAD and they won't die! And then I get bit >:(

42 Too hard (Cuphead)

Wait, this is a thing? A game too hard to play? - Userguy44

(cough, Castlevania 3, Battletoads, Punch-Out's World Circuit and Ninja Gaiden, cough) - xandermartin98

Git good

43 Tedious Special Stages (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)
44 Master Fortress boss fight (Super Smash Bros. for Wii U)
45 Too short (Crash Twinsanity)

I loved this game but I really wish it was longer and more levels where you play as Cortex or Nina - myusernameisthis

The part where Cortex enters Coco's brain would have made me SO hard - xandermartin98

46 The Neighbor Throws Glue and Tomatoes at You (Hello Neighbor)

So annoying

47 Unbelievably Pretentious Dialogue and Moral Messaging (Undertale)
48 Metropolis Zone Can Be Very Tedious to Clear (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)
49 Extremely obscure requirements for the true ending (Cave Story)

Jenka's Nightmare made the issue even WORSE somehow - xandermartin98

50 Nigh-unplayable without extensive usage of mods (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)
