RAGE! The most angry you have ever been at a game.

 Pages 1 2 3 NEXT
 

I'm sure even the most quiet and reserved gamer has had their spouts of anger when playing. I think the most angry I have ever been was when playing Assassin's Creed: Revelations on the one sequence, note: I was completing the game with 100% in all missions/memory blocks, and too obtain 100% for this particular mission, you could not take ANY DAMAGE WHATSOEVER

I must have restarted at least 20 or so times, thats not an exageration, literally I was hit, shot, thrown, and fell 20 times. I finally had reached the end of the damn hallway and just as I went to light the TNT, a glitched happened where I ended up running the wall instead of activating the objective and I jumped off the edge and hit the floor after about the 75 or so foot drop.

I screamed, dropped the controller and added a new dent in my wall, and a bruised elbow.

What has been your most angered experience in video games Escapists?

Trying to find all the boxes in "Cold Hard Crash" in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back.

Damn that took a long time, and I only found the last box because I was frantically jumping around (in the game, not real life) like crazy and suddenly hear a *smash* and thought..."it was there?"

Oh, and trying to get Huang Zhong's 4th weapon in Dynasty Warriors 4.

"Gaarrr, Liu Bei, stay in the main camp! Don't charge out to meet the enemy!"

*Liu Bei is killed*

"Game Over"

Compared to most gaming stories, it's rather minor but take note I rarely do 'finish X in X mode.' It was the achievement in Space Marine for finishing Part 1 in Hard Mode. That fucking Ork ship. It was a terrible time to die >.>.

Devil May Cry 3: Dante must die mode.

The trouble is that most of it is down to my less-than-perfect timing. The rest of it that isn't is down to those fucking blood-goyles. Example: Mission 5. As you start you are attacked by two groups of 3 and 4 respectively. The first group usually goes down with little or no trouble, but the second always has a larger one that will split itself in two smaller ones when it becomes one of the last two.

The only one I can think of right now is Duke Nukem Forever. I had to stop the game and didn't touch it for two weeks, I only went back just in case it actually got better later (Spoiler warning: it didn't.)

Let's ignore the fact that Duke's "ego bar" was as helpful to gauge Duke's health as flipping a coin, let's ignore the fact the only weapon I would call functional was the shotgun alone, and let's ignore the fact that the enemies were extremely cheap and as fun to kill as a balloon filled with someone's fart. Ignoring all that, when you died (and you will die... ALOT) you had to stare at a god damn loading screen that literally took a minute and a half between EVERY. FUCKING. DEATH.

I actually spent more time at certain points looking at the loading screen than I was actually playing this fucking shitty game.

I don't normally get angry with games, but I have to say, I was pretty damn pissed off in KOTOR2 when they force you to play as Atton Rand. I hadn't used him at all during the game so he was really under-levelled. But I eventually figured out the trick of hiding behind the table in the corner, so it didn't matter. Also, the Ninja Gaiden series is the biggest rage fest ever.

Poison Ivy boss fight in Arkham Asylum. The controls on PC just completely change and it's really annoying :(

Also the Mass Effect 3 ending obviously, and the third boss Moldorm in A Link To The Past, so fucking stressful when you get knocked off the platform ARGH.

Spinning tower of blades. God of War.

I usually turn a game off it pisses me off that much, but I was really immersed in that game and was fucking furious by the time I'd done it.

Since getting an 360 last year, i took it upon myself to dig into the local gamestores Used "archive" and get some exclusive's i might've missed out on.

So i've been going through Halo backwards, Reach, ODST, and now Halo 3.
5 euro's at the local gamestore, "Used" of course.

So yeah....hmmm..hmmm...Cortana level, Flood.....destroy three thingies, get eaten...a lot..
RAGE!
Maybe need to call in a second player some day, when i can look at the disc and not explode with anger.

Baldurs gate, last fight with Sarevok is always a pain in the ass.

I was trying a conjurer playthrough last week and I just couldn't beat the bastard! >.<

World of Tanks was my last, they have a horrid matchmaking where they throw your weak ass starting rickshaw up against people 2-4 tiers above you, their tanks are sofar ahead I can't even dent them with point blank shots.
Not to mention the people who played long enough to get those tanks have an absurd amount of experience so the effect is exponantially horrid.

Don't know who was putting that system together but he is an absolute imbecile, and I hear the problem get's worse as you progress.

Golding the S licenses in Gran Turismo 3,5.

ive been a gamer for 32 years now and i just put it away and come back later if its starting to get to me. but yeah ME3 ive never been that frustrated and angry about a game in 32 years of gaming

Red Green Blue

Yup, there's a clue of what i'm talking about

Hate bioware.

Well, I've played Demons's Souls and Dark Souls, so yeeeaaah....
You can probably guess the rest.

I was going to say this , but i didn't get mad at the game i got mad at myself . Then i rememebered , Catherine angered me WAY more than dark/demon's souls . So i am going to go with Catherine hardmode . Man i love these hard games , when is the next difficult game coming out?

NHL Hockey 95. Cheatin' rally-code AI broke my brain. I ended up punching a hole in my dorm wall.

That just makes it harder actually. it scales a little bit with how many player you have.

The flying school in San Andreas. Oh GODS, how I loate the flying school. Even with a joypad, the missions were endlessly frustrating!

What's worse, they're needed for progress.

Battlefield 3, especially when I'm playing "camp" games.

Always campers around the m-coms, campers in corners, the team thats supposed to be attacking are all camping in their own base with snipers, camping with mortars. Cant get the games won effectively.

Legend of zelda Twilight princess, (this is only due to me being a retard, and it was my first wii game) I have real difficulty jumping off stuff then catching onto ledges and climbing up. I even started screaming at this one ledge I was so pissed off, I do suck at the wiii but those mechanics are not nicley put together.

Oh yeah and ME3's ending

Final boss of Dead Space 2. Went in without enough ammo/health and didn't have a save I could easily go back to where those would be easy to find. Every failure triggered a long-ass cutscene where deadbitch grabs you and, like, shoops dah woop in your face and you commit suicide.

Or something.

Basically it sucked.

Another possible contender is.... pretty much every 30 seconds in Fallout New Vegas. God damn. I love that game and all, but holy shit I wanted to punch kittens at it some times.

>>Try to talk to someone in casino.
>>Accidentally steal ashtray.
>>Have to slaughter everyone.

Edit: NOPE! CHUCK TESTA!

Just remembered: Dead Island wins this contests forever. I dumped a bunch of time into it basically the moment it came out, but then there was an update or something and... POOOF! Bye bye savegames. Steam had logged about 4 hours in the game but I think it had been longer. Anyways I rage quit that game so hard that, after about half an hour flirting with the idea of starting over, I put the game down and never went back. I rage quit the *SHIT* out of that game.

The yeti boxing fight in Spyro 3. I wanted a nice relaxing nostalgia trip, but no.

Oh,and my general state of being when I played MW2.

Golding the S licenses in Gran Turismo 3,5.

Oh god... I nearly broke my hand after I punched a wall doing that S license test in the Toyota One on GT3 with no TCS or ABS. Polyphony Digital you sadistic bastards.

I rage quite often, but because I already knew before buying how rage-inducing Dark Souls could be, I actually forced myself to calm down whenever playing them, because I knew that getting angry would just ruin the experience for me. Probably a healthy decision, though it did force me to take frequent breaks.

>>Have to slaughter everyone.

Haha, I love that logic.

Even funnier in Skyrim.
Walk into village.
Punch a chicken
Have a bloodthirsty mob bludgeon you for punching their Poultry.

OT: Stuntman. By the fucking gods, STUNTMAN

pokemon Soul Silver elite four, i forget which elite it was but they used this attack that would make my pokemon miss every freakin damn time and if i had a turn it would insta kill. i almost snapped my DS in half O_O but i put the game down calmed down and tried again and i beat it XD lame i know but god was it infuriating to miss constantly

I don't remember if it was my maddest but it was the last time I got really made because the consequence made me realize how silly losing my temper over a game is.

Red Faction II. It was either the last boss or close to it. I had him dead in one more shot and the cheating bastage hit me through the wall with a rail gun. I was so mad I repeatedly punched my pillow until my wrist started to hurt. I punched a PILLOW and hurt my wrist.

MW3 domination when im the only person on my team capping flags, normally because the rest of my team is to busy acting like retards and dying, i dont mean to sound cocky but i can normally carry a semi-bad team to victory (or at least a close match) but when im on a team full off of 12 year old squeaky retard people it makes my blood boil...
and then the enemy air support comes in

seriously if you play domination go 10-40 and cap no flags fuck you, go play a different game because COD clearly isnt for you

The Boss in MGS3 on Normal.
I had to restart the game on easy to find out you could shoot her with the shotgun from long distance inbetween the time she spots you and the time she opens fire.
Having typed that last sentence, I feel extremely stupid.

In Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix (yeah, I know, it's quite a mouth full) certain races are required to proceed with the story. Of course, these races are always the longest tracks and you have to go round them a thousand times. Here's where my rage came in: I had to do that race for the billionth time, cause I kept crashing and hurling myself into hedges and other roadusers not paying attention to my incoming '69 Charger, and I was in a solid lead, then, on the final straight, some other guy comes riding in, gives me a nudge that wouldn't even make a falling feather change direction, I spiral out of control ten feet from the finish line, seeing first, second and third place being taken right from me. I was so pissed I threw the controller away and it broke clean in half. Did cost me 20 bucks.

By a huge margin, the most angry I've ever been at a game was Okami. Don't fall for people saying what an underrated classic it is. It's a goddamn broken, barely playable mess. And then you get to the required digging minigame. You have a very strict time limit. Make only a few mistakes and you have failed. And you will absolutely make more than the regulation number of mistakes because the game's "Celestial Brush" mechanic is a poorly programmed piece of shit that can't tell all the circle based shapes apart. Holy hell, I have never raged so hard before and I haven't raged so hard since. I even put the game away for a few weeks and then came back to it, and within minutes I was raging again.

Sold that piece of shit soon after, and I haven't looked back except to warn other people about how broken the game is in the face of a bunch of liars telling them how great it is. It's really not. Games are an interactive medium, and when you can't properly do that, they have completely failed. I would rank Okami lower than ET for Atari 2600, Big Rigs Over the Road Racing, and all the other infamously bad games out there. Don't play (rather, don't attempt to play, because actually playing this broken slop is impossible) Okami.

Durgiun:

I remember hearing about that part in the game, if you get fat and give a gift to the flight instructor right at the start of them all, you just pass them all or something like that if I remember right.

The last few fights in DOA4, as much as I love that game, are infuriating sometimes. I don't often rage, but when I don't land a single hit because the AI kills me in one long combo which continues long after I'm dead, I feel like breaking something.

Or the last boss in SF4. Didn't even beat him once. Got up that far, finally, lost probably a dozen times, then put down the game and happily returned the rental.

Or that Time Trial mode in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. Sweet Jesus that is difficult! My record is the third round. THIRD BLOODY ROUND and several dozen failed attempts.

You know what, lets just say fighting games in general. Love them, but sometimes I wish the AI were a real person so I could stab it in the face.
