Top Ten Worst Things About Video Games

Oh yes, there is downsides about these brain ruining epics.

The Top Ten

1 They Cost a Lot of Money

I hired NEW! Super Mario bros. on Wii and I got it for a whopping $86. JUST TO HIRE A GAME

60$ seems to much for a video game - Ilikegames

Because they're new, duh. Or you're paying too much for an old game. - HiN

Did you know? On amazon you can get the cube Wii for £13. On ebay it's £349.99! - lizard302

2 It Turns Out to Be a Bad Game

This is why we have game reviewers. So that no innocent gamer will accidentally pick up a copy of "Ride To Hell: Retribution" and get screwed out of his money.

Final Fantasy isn't bad. Chill.

This only really happens with ea, and video games don't rot your brain, but they do cause eye strain, unless of course ea

3 It Rots Your Brain

If you think about it there is strategy and creativity involved in most video games... You have to know how to fight in fighting games as well... You can't just spam the same button most of the time or the stronger enemies will find you and kill you

No wonder my head hurts after being so long in the game...

Not all games rot your brain like Solitare

4 All the Day 1 DLC

If they can release on day one, why not any other day? - cdxtreme

5 Water Levels

Desert Levels more so than water levels. The only bad level of Halo 4, my favorite game, was a desert level. Castle Crashers had a series of desert levels that even the biggest fans hated! And lets not even start with Super Mario desert levels...

I love video games but I hate these - Therandom

I love these (call me crazy)

Crash bandicoot's water levels feel better than listening to Ricegum rap - B1ueNew

7 You Will Complete the Game But There Is Nothing Else to Do

Happened to me so many times

And I don't have the heart to erase all my Pokémon to restart! Oh the dilemma! - keycha1n

You know, after you have completed a game you like, and there's nothing else to do, just work on the other save files completing all the levels and things. Also, you could go on YouTube and search up glitches for you're game…or you coud just simply buy (or make someone buy) a new game.

8 Button-Mashing

This is probably the most uncreative way to do something,all it is is mashing,I would prefer strategy,not rapidly pressing buttons to. Defeat an enemy. - DapperPickle

This jams the controller button making it stick or stuck.I shouldn't have done that when playing Pokemon stadium 1 long time ago.

This is what I do in some games. And it works. - RiverClanRocks

Hop behind punch in head repeat

9 Idiots Who Accuse You of Hacking

Just a sore loser excuse for being bad!

10 Some Are Luck Based

Good God, why should luck be in games, they're about skill, and some sections in games that require luck can leave you defenseless

Well luck is sometimes fun. Trickshot is luck and drops are fun.

The Contenders

11 Buying Stuff With Real Money
12 Mean-Spirited Players
13 Terrible Fanbases

Fan bases suck 70% of the time.

14 Some Force You to Collect a Certain Amount of Something Before You Can Continue On

Mostly on mobile games. - CartoonCriticizer

15 Squeakers

Sure, it's fine if eight year-olds want to play online games for fun, but it's just that half of them just scream into their mics every time they get killed, and accuse everyone of 'hacking' and using 'cheats'.

16 They're Not Real

Yeah and so?
