Games that genuinely make you angry.

As I write this, I have Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City paused on my Xbox.
This game....is terrible.
The AI is one of the worst I've seen in a game for a long time. Your teammates are even more useless that Sheva was in RE5. They keep running into trip mines, or gunfire, or zombies. Furthermore, they don't help you when your hurt or infected (meaning your health degenerates unless you're sprayed by a cure). I don't even think they kill anything. Additionally, the controls are blocky, it's glitchy, has a terrible cover system, and all in all just seems like a very halfhearted game. This game is making me angry - partly because it's terrible all in all, but also because it's a Resident Evil game. I wasn't expecting much after reading the many negative reviews, but being a big Resident Evil fan, I thought I'd give it a go. But it's just terrible. Even little things like only being able to use the d-pad on menus is frustrating.

I don't often do this with games, but I think I'm going to have to stop playing, which is a shame, but I don't think I'm missing much.

So, what games have made you genuinely angry, and forced you to stop playing, either because they're mechanics are unbelievably frustrating, or because they are just bad games?

Well I do rage a lot at Dark souls, partly because ****ING ANDOR LONDO ARCHERS!!! Also because I really dislike the PvP.
It probably would be fun but most of my experience with it has been like so...

Im a low level character, in a low level area, learning to play.
I get invaded, this could be fun I think.
I get killed in two hits by some **** using end game equipment.
This is not fun........

It's also annoying that I have to run the risk of being invaded just to play the Co-op, usaully I just turn my Xbox off when I get invaded now simply because I don't want to even bother pretending to have a chance against people with far supirior equipment which pretty much translates into insta win.

EDIT: Actully I can add to that. Blazblue CS. Tager...
I don't care if he isn't broken at high level play but at low level where people are learning to play he is such a damn broken character, his special grab attack and distortion do way too much damage. I raged so hard.
That said I will be getting extend in the next few day's and he is apparently a more viable character in that.

I think the only game that genuinely makes me angry is the Blackwater game, because of the whole "ad campaign for mercenary scumbags" thing. Terrible games are funny, not rage-inducing.

I don't buy games that I know for sure are going to make me angry. I know some people do, but I don't like challenge.

I just get angry at a certain part of a game and rage quit.

Example:
In Final Fantasy 10, on the airship after fighting that bird carpet boss Evrae about twelve times. I just couldn't stand him anymore, every time I got close to killing him he'd caste haste on himself and murder my characters.

Binding of Isaac, trying to finish Sheol as Eve.
Fuck that shit, yo.

Dead Rising 2 got me pretty frustrated.

It's a sandbox game where every single mission is on a timer.

Urgh.

UMVC3 is really rageworthy sometimes... Like how a certain ponce with sunglasses can completely own your entire team with zero effort or skill

WESKER!!!!

And all my wins in Ranked just don't happen since my disk has a spaz every time I get Phoenix Wright to Turnabout Mode... The music change kicks me back to Dashboard 50% of the time

Son of a B.

Oh and Anor Londo Fucking Snipers in Dark Souls... Wanna know how I got past them? I got the luckiest parry on one then fucking legged it to the bonfire. Every death is fair my fucking arse!

Oh and Gwyn. The music tells me it's meant to be the inevitable fall of a god... But Gwyn says "want to heal? how about nooooooooooo!" *insane DMC sword lunge go*

Here you go fine Internetz

See? The song says "destroy him! Fall of a god!"

The input lag the 360 version sometimes has makes the parrys unreliable at best. Not to mention the parries are hard anyway...

EDIT: Speaking of the music, having that song playing when i'm playing Sona in League of Legends makes me play loads better...

It fits her so damn well. Maybe there's a harp version out there somewhere...

Pokemon Black and White for obvious reasons.

Mainly because it's a step back in the wrong direction in terms of the game series and people are praising it. Now a sequel is confirmed for it. A 2 year time lapse does not make a game a sequel, especially when there are no new elements to be found compare to it's "prequel."

ME3. Not so much for its faults but for how those faults were addressed by the people who made it...

Jak 2... the one game I almost broke my tv over. Great story but the missions are extremly hard for the 2nd half of the game.

Playing an elemental shaman back in the day against a rogue. RRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGEE!!

Someone should watch some of those trailers. Besides, Golden Sun did it.

Did I make my point yet?

I think the only thing in games that make me angry are Character Creation bugs.

When I am trying to make a character in Dragon Age or Skyrim for example and there is a LITTLE bug that may annoy the usual person, will annoy the flying fuck out of me. Like the beard problem in dragon age, or the slider issue I am having in Skyrim.

Then there is Oblivion in which every character looked butt fuck ugly. The most complicated character creator.

Mass Effect it was impossible for me to make a female that didn't look like a seal and every male I made always seem to look the SAME!

I hate character creators...for the most part Skyrim is the best. I love it. Except the Slider issue it is having after the last update....uhg.

Gears of War 3 (Dumb but doesn't realise is)

Fable 2 ( Pathetic and watered down)

Mortal Kombat Armageddon.(Paper thin and lazy)

Some games have made me frustrated to the point of anger, but I only stopped playing when I realized I was getting too angry to enjoy myself. Once I did, I had a genuinely good time with those games. The combat difficulty was what had pissed me off.

Now, a game that made me angry on the whole? ... nope, I'm really drawing a blank. I tend to do my research before buying a game these days, so I don't get fundamentally mad about it.

demon souls

total war shogun 2 (seriously F that game)

world of warcraft playing arenas against a druid/hunter that lasted for two hours.

The original Max Payne.

I played it recently, and it is one of the most uninteresting and patronizing experiences I've had in games thus far. It makes me feel angry that it was considered to have a "great story" or "fantastic characters." (quoted from a friend of mine who hadn't played it in almost a decade, he agreed after playing it again)

Binding of Isaac, trying to finish Sheol as Eve.
Fuck that shit, yo.

Oh God. Is that even possible? That little dead bird of hers must be useless at that point.

OT: Trying to beat Street Fighter IV as Sakura took me 48 attempts. I nearly ended my keyboard.

(Fun Fact: I play SFIV better with a keyboard than with a controller. I don't understand either.)

bad boys II on ps2 :\ bought it off a friend for $2. He clearly got the better end of the deal.

The only time I've genuinely raged at a game for an extended period of time was when I got stuck on the race against Dexter Hovis in Freelancer. You have to fly through these tiny rings (maybe about twice the size of the average ship in diameter) while Hovis's cronies fire everything they've got at you. Meanwhile, Hovis is making every single turn, sharp or otherwise, with perfect accuracy. And you can't shoot him OR his cronies.

Skip to about 4:00 for the rules and the two attempts at the race.

All of my hate for that mission.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

Okay, so it's a little like Etrian Odyssey, only not QUITE as rage inducing...

UNTIL you get to Captain Jack. Captain MOTHERFUCKING Jack. He starts off with two demon buddies. They can cast the single most BROKEN status effect in the game on your characters, Bomb. Turns one of your allies into a Bomb. They then die from a single physical attack, and deal their remaining HP as damage to the rest of your party. At least you can exploit their weaknesses...

But then there's Jack himself. In addition to not having any weaknesses and several, deadly attacks, he can also, at any time, at no cost, use a skill called Pure Blue. This recovers HP equal to a major heal, AND removes debuffs AND removes any stat decreases.

And to top it all off? The best strategy ANYONE can come up with is "Try to Charm him" which has something like 1% chance of working at the best of times.

RAAAAAAAAAAAGE

Battlefield 3.

When the enemy team is moving in groups, working together and supporting each other while the team I'm on is running around like a bunch of headless fucking chickens it can be quite frustrating.

When someone turns a corner and gets you with one shot. Better connection perhaps? Headshot? Still fucking annoying.

When I'm in a squad and everyone has the same squad specialisation equipped. Do people think that the effects stack or do they just not give a fuck?

Also, camping bastards.

Just checked the over-all Steam achievements. Turns out only 6.1% of people have done it.
I think if I could just get a Brimstone or Mom's knife before the depths I could do it, but no, Eve gets all the shit drops and no Devil rooms.

With Eve, I think I managed three floors.

I'm not very good at the game. I beat it once, because I was playing Magdalene and managed to acquire 16 hearts. I walked in at full health, panicked, and won with half a heart left.

The very last choice in Fate/Stay Night made me incredibly angry/upset, but that's at the the stupidity of the protagonist/brilliance of the visual novel. Can't think of any rig-

Oh wait, Batman Arkham Asylum, charging boss in a tiny little room with a fuck ton of enemies, on hard mode (my second hard mode after inFamous, which isn't hard at all). There was much rage induced that day. And the next day. But I got him eventually.

Modern Warfare 2 outside Search and Destroy was just an exercise in how long one could tolerate other humans. God that game had so much bullshit in its MP...

To be honest, Isaac seems like a game that's hard to be "Good" at. So much of it is based on luck of the draw and pattern recognition. Some runs, I may go Isaac and kill the final boss without taking a single hit because I'm so ridiculously OP, others, I may go Eve and genuinely die of Basement 2.
Getting the "Depths Boy" type achievements will not be fun.

"Depths... Boy"...?

Oh God. I'm afraid to ask for clarification.

Finish the Caves?Depths/Womb/Sheol (I think) without taking damage.
Have fun!

Haha, I know that feeling.

The only game that has made me genuinely angry was Uncharted, the first one. I played the whole thing and I loved the adventure side of it, I loved how gorgeous it looked. I was even starting to enjoy the story. But then constant shooting happened, a fight at nearly every corner, about 10 men at a time, ok it was less than that sometimes, I'll be fair. Constant enough to get me angry. I don't mind shooter games, in fact I actually enjoy some of them. But all that damned shooting in Uncharted 1 made me angry as it actually made the game very boring to me.

Mortal Kombat 3. Fucking Shao Khan

and Super Meat Boy. I don't have the patience

The Force Unleased 2 !!! I want to violate it with a wine bottle. Fuck that game, there is a special circle in Hell for that game. I wish it'd die of aids. I want to pay somebody with aids so he or she can have unprotected sex with the game so it would die of aids. Even better, i would infect the wine bottle which i want to violate it with, with aids. I've never used aids so much in a written statement. Aids.

This game is 6 hours long and it has no story whatsoever. It's bland and just icky. It suffered a lot from the "we want to make you feel like a badass" syndrome, because 2 levels in you already have the insanely strong powers to fight your retarded enemies with. A fully upgraded force push= insta win. Combat is repetitive and filled with Quick Time Events enemies, that show up in illogical places. I mean even a bad DMC player like me who uses the same combo's because they work can find enjoyment in DMC, but TFU 2 forces you to use the same tactics against your boring enemies.

The game bathes in repetitiveness. At the beginning you have like a "falling" downwards sequence, where you jump out of a tower, which is rather cool the first time. But Having you do it a couple of times more in a 6 hours game is just bad. 1 of the very few bossfights in the game is a "falling down sequence

.

Boss fights are a joke. Even the last boss fight that was supposed to be epic was just meh. That's what the game is, just a series of meh events, with meh combat that leaves you meh after playing this meh game. Even the part where yoda shows up for 3 seconds was meh and that was a big part of their advertisment campain.

Graphics may be shinier in TFU 2, but at least in TFU 1 You had to pull down a star destroyer with the force. Yes, you used the force to pull a Star Destroyer !

I hope the children of this game are born with diseases.

Any multiplayer game.

I hate it when people are better than me at stuff.

Mass Effect - Bring Down the Sky. I bought you, paid for you and yet I can't play you offline? It wouldn't be so bad but you won't let me play the game AT ALL if I'm not online. Fuck you bring down the sky, fuck you.

I almost said Force Unleashed 2 but I refuse to acknowledge the existence of that one.
