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 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

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 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

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 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

5 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

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.

6 Horrid control scheme (Batman Forever)
7 So boring (Minecraft)

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

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

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

There's people here who is still angry with minecraft? - Pato_cargo

8 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.

9 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

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

I just wanna break my controller

The Contenders

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

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.

Although this can get annoying, it forces people to get better at the game and try new characters. (Or you could always cheese the fights and stay bad) - WarframeFan

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!

Also infuriating: the people defending this, especially when they resort to tired old Internet slang.

12 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

13 Paying real money for more characters (Skylanders)

The definition of a cash grab... - codgtamk34

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

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

Two words: Git good. - TheAwesomeBowser

15 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

16 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

17 Camera angle (Sonic the Hedgehog 2006)
18 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

19 Long loading screens (Fortnite)

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

20 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.

21 Hard to kill zombies (Resident Evil 2)

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

22 Bad voice acting (Mighty No. 9)
23 Bottomless pit deaths due to enemy knockback (Ninja Gaiden NES)
24 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

25 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

26 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

27 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.

28 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.

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

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

30 Extremely obscure requirements for the true ending (Cave Story)

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

31 Nigh-unplayable without extensive usage of mods (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)
32 Master Fortress boss fight (Super Smash Bros. for Wii U)
33 Perfect-Play AI (Mortal Komba)
34 “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

35 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!

36 The Neighbor Throws Glue and Tomatoes at You (Hello Neighbor)
37 Rigged Computer Players (Mario Party)
38 Broken Checkpoint and Saving systems (Crash Bandicoot 1)
39 Ludicrously difficult collectible-unlocking requirements (Super Smash Bros. Series)
40 The Life Pot being actually required for the true final level and being extremely difficult to make it to that point in the game with (Jenka's Nightmare)

* What a nightmare. - xandermartin98

41 Nigh-impossible time trials (Crash N-Sane Trilogy)
42 Nigh-Impossible time trials (Donkey Kong Country Returns)
43 Egg Breaker boss fight (Shadow the Hedgehog)
44 Flame Hyenard boss fight (Mega Man X7)
45 “Have Challenge Medals Equipped for the Entire Game” challenge (Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story)
46 Having to cheat in order to beat the final boss (Mario & Luigi: Dream Team)

Yikes - codgtamk34

47 Forgetting to collect more than one of the game’s hidden ribbons for the safer Sephiroth fight (Final Fantasy VII)
48 Hard Mode (Mario & Luigi: Dream Team)
49 Revival system (Earthbound)
50 Horrible note-timing detection on modern televisions (Parappa the Rapper)
