The Most Frustrating Video Games
We at postitgamer.com will like to admit something to our readers..sigh..we’ve all participated in Controller Abuse at least one time while playing a video game. We’ve thrown controllers across the room after we repeatedly died at the hands of a brutal boss or dropped our controller in disbelief as we failed to qualify for a race because we lost by a fraction of a second. We’ve all expressed our anger in situations like these whether it is through shouting out words of profanity or simply turning off the console and walking away. What can we say, gaming brings the ugly out of us.
Search the internet for the most difficulty video games ever created and they are all consist of the same titles released as far as 20 years ago. Sure Contra was a pain in the a** to beat (even with the Konami code) and swimming through the electrified seaweed in TMNT was a nightmare but their are plenty of titles available on the current generations systems that will leave you crying on the couch in the fetal position.
So sit back, curl up with your controller and check out our list of the most frustrating video games available on the current gen-systems.
10.Donkey Kong Country Returns
The original Donkey Kong Country for the Super Nintendo was a masterpiece for its time. The Wii version brought back everything we loved about the original – Diddy Kong, riding various animals and fun boss battles. It also brought along a stage that to this day still gives us nightmares – the mine cart stage. Whomever thought that gorillas/monkeys in a mine cart jumping across sections of broken tracks should be smacked in the head with a banana. Those mine cart stages were absolutely brutal and you could easily go through all your lives trying to pass the level. Given that the remade level in Donkey Kong Country Returns may not be as unforgiving as the original it still stands as one of the most problematic levels to pass without tearing out your hair.
9.The Call of Duty series
The Call of Duty series has the most dedicated gaming communities that we have ever seen. The series is a money cow even if many argue that new entries in the series are basically slight upgrades with new multiplayer maps and story-lines that are on par with a B-movie. Besides making us feel like a complete bada** in epic action set-pieces, the real ‘fun’ begins when you play on the brutal Veteran difficulty. Endless spawning enemies attack you from all sides as they take you out from afar with a well placed shot, kill you with one melee hit, or bombard you with a multitude of hand grenades. All of these factors can make even the most seasoned gamer feel like a complete noob.
Catherine had an extremely odd premise. A puzzle-platformer psychological adventure game in which players controlled a man named Vincent who is torn between his wife and mysterious girl while depicting himself as a half-man/ half-sheep hybrid in his nightmares was a little odd – even for us. The premise was simple, lead Vincent up giant staircases that are slowly collapsing underneath him and safely reach the top. To accomplish that you will need to pull, push, and climb blocks as quickly as possible while avoiding various traps along the way with some boss battles thrown in for good measure. Making it even stranger, your real-life activities like drinking increases your retries during these puzzle segments. Trust us you will need as many retires as you can collect to get past these puzzles that only get harder and harder as the story progresses. Unfortunately the alcohol you will be consuming while dwelling on your failures for not completing Catherine do not count toward your retires. Oh well.
