Top 10 Worst Things About Among Us

Among Us is one of the most recent viral video games, having been released in 2018, but got incredibly popular in 2020 due to the coronavirus and quarantine. I've been playing a lot of it and while it's fun, it's not without flaws. So with that being said here is the list.
The Top Ten
Immature players

I haven't had a single game in Among Us where there's at least one idiot who's ruining the gameplay for everyone, wether it be not starting the game, calling emergency meetings for no reason, accusing others for no reason, etc. Not to mention how immature most people are. This a murder mystery game where you play Death Note, but half of the people have no clue what they're even doing. It's annoying.

I feel nauseous whenever I see or hear about this game for the millionth time. Don't get me wrong; I'm sure it's not a bad game, but the obsession with it is getting super annoying.

This just happened a little bit ago. So, a meeting is called and they say I'm the impostor (Which I was), but they said blue, even though I was Cyan. So I tell them that they met to say Cyan, and Lime replies back with ¨WHATEVER CYAN¨ and I left. I was just telling them the color I was.

I’ve been in a lot of toxic servers as well. Watching people tell others to kill themselves over a game is just unpleasant for me to watch, and it ruins the game. It’s why I prefer playing with friends.

People vote out someone just because of an accusation

This should say something about the playerbase being really immature and annoying. Just write "(insert colour here) sus" and almost everyone will gang up on him. Imagine this was real life and people just threw out others into outer space because "they were sus". Although to be fair this is a game..., but it's no fun when you get voted out when you're innocent.

All you gotta do is say something like "Red" and everyone jumps on his/her case, just by saying his/her name! like what.

Happens to me all the fricking time, once, someone said I vented, so they voted me out, but it wasn't even me.

One time someone Said white vented even though it was me XD (I was dark green)

Doing tasks gets repetitive

What sets Among Us apart from other murder mystery games is that the civilians (crewmates) actually have something to do instead of just running around and that is doing tasks on the map, wether it be connecting wires, flicking levers, etc. However it gets incredibly dull after a while, and some tasks are painfully annoying, like the aforementioned connect the wires, simon says and downloading data.

I guess it's no longer being an actually good game that is the key to popularity. It's just being a simple and repetitive game that relies on online multiplayer. What a real shame, society!

Especially the downloading tasks.

I'm fine with the task.

People who call emergency meetings for no reason

This happens often near the start of a game and it sucks. There's nothing to report and most people will juts voteskip or vote out the annoyance. What's worse is that they often aren't even the impostor, so we have to vote out a crewmate which adds a risk for the impostor to win because there's one less crewmate.

Today I was in this server, and this guy, named chef, called an emergency meeting and he's like what should I make for lunch today. I was like what the heck dude

Why do people call emergency meetings for no reason? I swear I was in a game and within 2 minutes we had like 3 emergency meetings like what..? Why 🤦‍♂️

I was playing Among Us yesterday and two emergency meetings were called in the first minute of the game.

When people take ages to vote

Either it means they're impostors, or they're just being annoying for the sake of it..., or they're AFK. Dude no one wants to wait for 90 seconds because you aren't voting. Just leave if you had to do something in the real world!

Sometimes it's annoying sometimes it's excusable.

Ugh these people are so annoying just vote for someone if you take too long then you look sus tbh

Not too bad, but can be a pain

People who don't start a game

You know, when the ten people have joined a server but the owner just won't start? And then everyone leaves and more people come but it still won't start! Like why did you make the server then in the first place? Sure you can always leave it without consequences at least but it's still annoying.

Yeah this is obnoxious.
Me: Joins, is the 10th player.
Me in the chat: Start
Half the others: Start...
5 minutes later: START!
*just leaves game because the host is lazy as hell*

I hate it, but it doesn't happen much

You just have everyone spamming start, it gets annoying

Being a ghost isn't fun

If you get killed by an impostor, all you can do is complete tasks but who likes doing tasks? Apart from that, you can't report bodies, vote or discuss with the others..., just like a normal ghost. It's no fun in the slightest and I hope ghosts get something more interesting to do in the future.

I don't mind spectating other players, especially the dude who killed me, and chatting to the other ghosts is ok too I don't see why this is even mentioned on the list

For me it depends if I’m an impostor or a crew mate. If I’m a crew mate, and when I’ve finished the tasks, all I do is follow the person that killed me. But if I’m an impostor, I have fun and go sabotage-crazy.

Maybe give the ghost something special to do. Also you can chat while being a ghost.

No way to increase your chance to become impostor

Half of the time I log into Among Us, I do so to hope I can play a round as an impostor because it's the most fun part of the game. Unluckily, the chance of that actually happening is incredibly low because there are ten people in the server, and only one to three of them can be chosen depending on the server type.

Na because then literally everyone would increase their chances and it would just be the same thing as we had with no increased chances.

Disagreed. It’s way better if it’s random, that makes the game more unpredictable.

I mean if they did have a way to increase it everyone would do it because being an imposter is the best part of the game

The people who use discord or have a sibling in the game to find out who the imposter is then just tell everyone

*Inhales* Today I met the most irritatingly annoying cheaters I've ever met. So yellow was THE impostor and killed dark blue, We reported and Black said it was yellow (Which was true). But this b^tch said 'Yellow is my brother so I'm not gonna vote him' she voted me and so did her brother while I voted yellow and so did black then it was a tie. I found black's body then they voted me out! Sadly, they were the host so they were in charge. These people must be banned!

That's cheating, but there isn't really anything to do against that. The game basically relies on people being mature and playing the game the way it's intended to be.

It's pretty annoying when it happens. One time when I was an imposter I killed someone and the person who died told their brother then told everyone but even so, I wasn't voted out XD.

They are cheaters, on the same level as hackers (ok maybe not quite as bad)

Players who leave the game because they are not imposter

These people deserve to go die in a hole, though stereotyping all game-start leavers as crew is a silly thing to do. Plenty of impostors leave at the start and it is even MORE frustrating because losing 1 of 8 hurts, but losing 1 of 2 is a kick in the balls.

That's the most annoying thing for me. Usually, there's always between 1 to 3 players who leave the game, it makes the game easier for the imposter and less interesting.

This is stupid. People rage quit cause they ain't imposter. then the imposters win cause there are no crewmates left except me

Seriously 😒 why do you leave just because you aren’t the imposter? That’s like not playing football because you’re not the Quarterback

The Contenders
The hackers are everywhere

I would be fine with hackers if 1: they made it obvious they were hacking before the game starts; AND 2: the hacks aren't cheating, they're just spicing up the gameplay a bit. But none of them seem to do either so all hackers suck basically.

Again that’s not really an issue with the game itself. Every game has hackers and cheaters so yeah... still something that the developers need to address

Once I was imposter and this other dude, we won straight away cause he hacked it was so annoying especially because I was crewmate like 7 times after that

Hackers are the WORST and besides they can steal your ID and everything

There are only 3 maps

The only balanced one of these is Skeld by the way. Mira HQ has way too many straight corridors and Polus is better but is confusing. Skelder is has a sensible map layout and isn't too large.

Skeld is the only map anyone uses, Mira HQ is annoying when you keep having to go through decom, and I have played Polus like more than 50 times, and haven't memorized it

Among Us costs five dollars though.

They should add like two more maps.

Getting banned from a server for no reason

I got banned just because I caught the impostor red-handed. Why are people so salty?

I got banned from a server yesterday for not being a 15 year old :/

I got banned for being male :/

Dying Immediately

This happened to me in a server just a minute ago. I got killed by the impostor about 30 seconds after the game started.

People voting you out even though you have confirmed to be safe

So I was watching my brother playing among us and I saw black scan be she got voted out because one of our dumb crewmates couldn't see that orange was the Imposter this is how everything went.
*Dead body reported*
Yellow: It's dark blue
Dark blue(My brother): Uh no It's orange
Yellow: How?
Black: yes It's orange
Dark blue: Well, You are not the imposter, I am not the impostor and black scanned. So it's orange!
yellow: Vote dark blue
Black: I'm voting orange
Dark blue: I'm skipping
Purple: Dark blue
Orange: Dark Blue
*Dark Blue was Not an impostor*
*Few minutes later*
*Dead Body Reported*
Black: It's orange
Yellow: No, Black
Black: I Scannned!
Orange: Black!
Black: No!
*Black was not the imposter*

*Back in the lobby*'
Yellow: gg
Dark blue: I said black had scanned :(

People who act like they are imposters but aren't

You know, those who talk WAY too much, or talk is if they are trying to sound nice but instead come off as suspicious? Those guys are really irritating because we vote them out but it turns out they aren't imposters and that means there's a higher chance for the impostor to win. Literally once someone said "Who tf killed ma boi Blue? He was my bestie" and I voted him out without hesitation when in the end he was innocent. Like come on who writes like that if you're innocent?

I’ve been in a server where someone “admitted” that they were an impostor, when they actually weren’t.

Uncomfortable death scenes

Not that big of a complaint but some of the death scenes are kinda unsettling. Especially the one where the impostor basically shoots a spear through your helmet (which looks like an eye due to the art-style). The other's aren't as bad but eh...

Lol. I have no problem with it.

Eh I’ve seen worse

Red and cyan always being portrayed as ‘sus’

Honestly, Purple and White are most sus for me. But I got everyone to vote red out even though I was the impostor for the 'memes'

epsically by me I say every red is sus lmao

Gaming racism

The mobile version is free while you have to pay for the PC version

It can be free on PC, all you need is BlueStacks.

Getting all 4 tasks in electrical
Card swiping

this be so stressful bc some could just come and kill you

It has a lackluster animation style
Overused names

I changed my name today because I thought it was overused, My new name is Pogchamp.

It's boring
It's too addictive

Any game can be addictive, I used to be addicted to among us but now I'm not.
