What is the most frustating level you ever played in a video/PC and flash game?

Vidya: I’m not really sure… The only level that would be potentially frustrating that sticks in my mind is Carnival Night Zone act 2 (from Sonic 3 & Knuckles). WE ALL KNOW THE REASON FOR THIS. That’s for an entire level, of course. If things that are not full levels count, then Vector’s Rooftop Run mission in Sonic Generations. Y U NO ALLOW MARGIN OF ERROR, VECTOR!? Which immediately makes facing Vector there the most annoying musically themed battle. Then again, I really only have the Prismrivers to compare him to…Speaking of which…

PC: I’d say SA stage 5 if I could even get through it on normal on a 1cc. I have to say SA stage 4 by default. (It doesn’t help that damn near ALL the shottypes have something in particular that would screw me over.) You’re a cheating bitch, Satori. Quit using StB/Extra/Phantasm stuff as regular spellcards.

Flash: If I could play flash games at the moment, I would.

I’d have to say almost all of Sonic Heroes. I’ve only played as Team Sonic because I’m stuck on that level. What really makes it hard is it’s incredibly easy to fall off platforms. The certain level that is most frustrating is the final boss of Team Sonic: Egg Emperor. There’s just too many hazards coming at you to focus on the target, and once you’ve finished taking care of all the other hazards, the main enemy moves on to the next area.

The Chest.
Binding of Issac.

Beating the Cathedral with Blue Baby is hard enough, but you are made to go to a floor where every room is bosses. The final boss being a harder version of Issac from the Cathedral, that was already difficult.

@Adam DeLand
If you’re having trouble clearing out the enemies quickly in that battle, then level Tails (or whoever the flying character is for the team you’re playing. I’m mentioning Tails because you’ve only played as Team Sonic) to level 2. Thunder Shoot becomes kind of ridiculously powerful at that point – It’s like a remote Homing Attack (‘remote’ as in the character you’re controlling won’t move) that will just target multiple enemies. Quickly gets rid of the Egg Pawns allowing you to focus on the boss himself. Thunder Shoot can also stunlock the boss.

…And if you’re having trouble with Team Sonic, then good luck with Team Dark, as they’re hard mode (seriously, Omochao says as much if you ask him.)

You should have started with Team Rose, to be honest, they’re easy mode.

And then there’s Team Chaotix… you’ll find yourself quickly getting annoyed due to missing things. And even then Frog Forest and Egg Fleet have some sort of stealth aspect (Frog Forest = don’t get seen by the frogs. Egg Fleet = Don’t get seen by enemies (the turrets will still lock onto Espio even if he’s camouflaged – good thing they don’t count.)

…Unfortunately to see the true ending you HAVE to complete the game with all 4 teams. And get all the Chaos Emeralds. Which for me is easier said than done becasue even if I do manage to keep the key, I SUCK AT THAT STYLE OF SPECIAL STAGE. (Seriously, the half/full pipe style started in Sonic 2? I suck at it. )

I’ve seen LPs of what I am unable to access myself, and… well, there are some disappointing things but at the same time some awesome music. You will NOT regret getting that far once you hear What I’m Made Of.

“Alright Sparky, this looks easy..Escort missions are a pain in the ass what’s the worst thing that could happe-
Damn it, meteors..
JESUS, EVEN MORE?
STOP

For Pete’s Sake, Earthworm Jim. It was painful. I don’t even know how many times I raged over that fucking dog.

The part of the Dead Trenches in Dragon Age: Origins with the fight against the Broodmother. The first play through that I did, my party got wrecked during that level about 5 or 6 times before I beat it. The final time, I used so many healing poultices that I ended up not having any for the rest of the game. Worse yet, I had the difficulty on the easiest rating.

Perhaps it was poor strategy on my part but it was extremely frustrating nonetheless. And regardless of good or poor strategy, the final fight in the Dead Trenches where you discover the Anvil of the Void can get pretty frustrating very quickly.

Queuing a four-stack DOTA group on NA east/west and getting a Russian who doesn’t speak English and feeds constantly as your fifth player. Imagine that you have a solid team composition designed around the other team’s mostly strength picks and a fifth person who hasn’t picked. Now, imagine that the Russian picks Nyx Assassin. But, Nyx could work as a ganker, right? Wrong. The fifth player picks Bounty Hunter.

Nyx ended the game 0-15-1. Xaxaxaxaxaxaxa, commend pls.

Ah geez, I don’t remember it very well or what level it was … I think I was 6 or something…but one time I got so frustrated playing Commander Keen (The first one) that I smashed the goddam keyboard and forced my dad to buy a replacement.

Regard that in that game; you don’t know what can kill you until it kills you, Keen has only 1HP at all times and death brings you back to the beginning of each level

But yea, I had never been so mad at any game in history since then.


@BlackWolfYellowEyes

IKR? Ski free was a pretty damn infuriating game. I could never figure out how you get past that damn monster. I would spend the entire game just fearing it’s arrival. Knowing that it is watching, waiting, following…

…I wasn’t skiing down a mountain…I was fleeing for my life.

This is the single hardest thing I’ve ever accomplished is this level.

You can make no mistakes. You have to get every fuel cell and also not even so much as graze anything. If it happens at all, you lose, end of story.

Oh, and you’re going way beyond the speed that is normally recommended when racing. Boosts are meant for when you’re in straightaways and easy curves, not when threading needles. Suffice it to say, this is possibly the single hardest level in any big name game ever.

Story Mode chapters on Very Hard are insane, can’t deny it. I’ve only managed to unlock 4 of the 10 AX pilots because of that.

…That’s it. I actually might have found something more frustrating at the moment than SA stage 4/5.

‘Nihilanth’ from Half-Life.

REALLY, VALVE!? YOU MAKE IT INVOLVE JUMP PADS AND GIVE THE BOSS AN ATTACK THAT CAN VERY EASILY KILL YOU PRETTY MUCH AT ONCE, WILL HIT YOU IF YOU’RE NOT MOVING FAST ENOUGH IN MIDAIR AND HAS A HITBOX SEEMINGLY LARGER THAN THE ACTUAL SPRITES!?

HOW THE F**KING F**K IS THAT EVEN REMOTELY F**KING FAIR!? I’M EVEN PLAYING ON F**KING EASY AND IT STILL BORDERLINE ONE-SHOTS ME. F**KING CHEAP, VALVE, F**KING CHEAP! FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

(You can tell I’ve just been trying to from the sheer RAGE there. I even ragequit because of that bull****! Seriously, how is that even REMOTELY FAIR!? At least with SA you can bomb problem attacks! I have NO WAY TO DEAL WITH THE ATTACK.)

Cat Mario. I forget it’s Japanese name.

The particular version I played was “Cat Mario 3”. In which I had managed to get to the stage 3 checkpoint before my computer itself rage quit for me by overheating.

The final boss of Wu Tang Clan Shaolin Style
AND I’m being completely serious fuck that dude
I still can’t beat him
