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.

Family Party: 30 Great Games - Obstacle Arcade has bad controls.

Everyone likes good controls.

Can companys just try to make a game

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.

I like cutscenes in general, but 2 or 3 times of seeing them is enough. After that I like to skip, unless I CAN'T

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

One time on Pokemon sun, my 3DS was about to run out of battery and I had to go through this cutscene. I was out!

3 Lag

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

Lag is cool. But cool means cold. And cold means evil. So lag is evil.

Congrats on getting your list featured EvilEyedWarHawk / Wolfenstein Follower!

Lag is bad
and that's just a fact

4 Long Loading Screens

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

Lego city undercover. Great game though...

Sonic 06 has bad loading time

Splatoon has a really long intro…

5 Microtransactions

Well, there's an upside. If there are in-app purchases forced into your face in a game, it usually means the game was free.

The problem with modern games, even Mario.

I regret using Credit Card on this

Yet Rockstar gets away with it.

6 Bugs

I sometimes like bugs. They can be really interesting.

some bugs are really funny though.

7 Over-Saturation Due to Too Many Sequels

*cough* EA *cough*
Still prefer Sim City 4

8 Video Game Rip-Offs

Yes. Ugh. These "good game developers" are just scamming ya!

Minecraft has a bunch of ripp offs like p9kicraft which suck

9 Numbered Series
10 No End Reward
The Contenders
11 Frame Rate Drops
12 Interactive Cutscenes
13 Overhyped Games

Super Metroid and the Prime Trilogy, for example

Minecraft and Fortnite, need I say more.

Mass Effect Andromeda, No Man’s Sky, and Destiny were not flat out horrible, but they were all disappointing.

Any modern Call of Duty game.

14 Music You Can't Silence

Yeah. Some music options like turn it off are not available and sometimes you can get addicted to the music and want it, plus it is sometimes very annoying!

15 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.

Very annoying

16 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?

Ah the 80s and 90s.
I didn't even grow up in the 80s but they had good games.

Most Call of Duty Wii games have this.

This is totally fine for me

17 Long Respawn Time

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

18 Overpriced DLC

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

Paradox: its free real estate

Unless it's fortnite

19 Good Graphics with Bad Gameplay

Remember when Call of Duty was good?

It's still good though in my opinion. Just not as good as it used to be.

This is why I love Nintendo!

20 Game Freezing

A few times my saints row 3 game would freeze on me on pc it drove me nuts, it froze badly that I had to log out of my computer to close it

21 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!

22 Can’t Skip 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!

I was finishing assassin creed rogue and when I got to the credits it took 20 minutes for the credits to finish and I didn't even get anything from sitting their and watching the credits.

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

I hate credits all I have to say.
