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)

This game is total crap - TriggerTrashKid

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

2 Can't pause the game (Resident Evil 6)
3 Was rushed (Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly)

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)

No checkpoints? Man... - darthvadern

1 GUY!? NO CONTINUES!?! - Avgn

5 Horrid control scheme (Batman Forever)
6 Extreme difficulty (Super Mario Bros. the Lost Levels)

Two words: Git good. - TheAwesomeBowser

7 Time limits (Superman 64)

And you have to fly through rings over and over...and the game is glitchy as can be...you 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 is the best game ever. Whoever put this on this list has no talent

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

Minecraft is the best game of all time

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

When your big selling point is the large cast of characters, this is what *not* to do.

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.

It was far too long for me to be without Lucina (or her dad, who I'd been eager to try since he was announced), and in the meantime I hadn't warmed to anyone I was stuck with. In fact, that's WHY it took so long to get her; I had to beat her with sucky characters I couldn't use very well. And that damn "challenger rematch" thing didn't help at all.

10 So repetitive (Grand Theft Auto Online)

Hence why I hate online gaming.

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.

The Newcomers

? Game Only Saves When You are on a New Floor (Crystar)
? Long Cutscenes (Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth)

The Contenders

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

I just wanna break my controller

12 Getting Sent To Detention (Baldi's Basics In Education and Learning)

Worst thing in school and this game

13 “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

14 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

15 Camera angle (Sonic the Hedgehog 2006)

Almost everything about Sonic 06 is bad

16 Crappy jumpscares (Five Nights at Freddy's)

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.

17 Getting Arrested (Yandere Simulator)
18 The ending (Red Dead Redemption)

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

19 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

20 Having to Play with Playtime (Baldi's Basics In Education and Learning)
21 Only 4 boards (Super Mario Party)

The top 100 only had one

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

32 Paying real money for more characters (Skylanders)
33 Nigh-impossible time trials (Crash N-Sane Trilogy)
34 Radiant quests (Fallout 4)
35 Long loading screens (Fortnite)

I agree! By the time the game starts, I'm in the Battle Bus already. I don't know if it just happens to me or others. My computer lags for Fortnite.

Fortnite sucks. Its copying other games like apex legends

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

36 Flame Hyenard boss fight (Mega Man X7)

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

BURN TO THE GROUND!

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

Two words: witch time

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.

38 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.

39 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

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

40 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.

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)

Those were actually pretty hard and it took me 3 months to beat - KingSlayer93316

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 Unbelievably Pretentious Dialogue and Moral Messaging (Undertale)
47 Need an online membership to play (JumpStart World)

The boxes and commercials for these 3 games said NOTHING about an online membership! And you think with the gameplay you didn't need one. Such greedy bastards who don't think about the damn children and yet make games aimed at them!

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

That is annoying, especially when you’re climbing a ladder - KingSlayer93316

So annoying

49 Metropolis Zone Can Be Very Tedious to Clear (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)
50 Extremely obscure requirements for the true ending (Cave Story)

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