Anyone have a current game that frustrates you making you hurl your controller/GBA across the room in anger? Often I'll just trade in a game that I just can't solve, but every so often there is that game that despite being hard, is just fun enough you keep coming back for more (last summer it was Stuntman).

For me its Super Monkey Funball Jr. for my GBA. Stupid monkey, keeps falling off the platform!

For frustraing games I couldn't put down, nothing will ever touch the bruise on my thigh from smashing my fist whenever I died playing "Yar's Revenge".

I'll take that old school cred now.

What's so thrilling about Yars' Revenge? It was Missile Command that gave me fits. They just keep coming...and coming...

I've stopped playing Mario Sunshine. I just can't imagine that the end would be worth all the trouble you put up with in that game...especially the "no backpack" stages where you fall about a zillion times. ARGH

It was one of those *no backpack stages* that had me so very irritated yet unable to stop playing. It was 5-2, I think. The one where you have to climb the pink ghosts around the pole and jump in the big ghosts mouth. The music and the gigantic blocks were CRAZY!!!! Still, I haven't gone back to the game in a while, partially because of EWR 2.0, and partially because of Ocarina of Time.

I'm just about ready to smash my Madden 2003 into little, bitty pieces. Tiger Woods 2003 has some scenarios on it that are a bitch to beat on the gold medal levels, as well.

DT-Swat ball on Madden 2003 minicamp is the most annoying thing ever. When the computer decides that you're doing too well, and switches between the closest and farthest receiver FOUR TIMES IN A ROW, I want to shoot the damn Cube.

I'm an admitted impulse buyer when it comes to games, and I know I have many a dubious title in my collection for all my systems. The only real problem with this is after awhile I tend to give up on every new game I buy only to come back to them a week or more later. On Gamecube alone I have Jedi Knight 2, Clone Wars, Mario Sunshine, Metroid, and Die Hard Vendetta all collecting dust next to the Cube, not to mention all the other games for it I just plain don't play anymore.
I'm sure I'll jump back ino the swing of things with the new Zelda, but at the moment I'm happy playing my Ocarina disk and old Super Nintendo games.

Wait, how'd you get the Super Nintendo games on your Cube?

Riven...

I decided that I was going to beat it without cheating, and so I did. The part that really got me going nuts was I was stuck near the end for about a week... at the part where you have to place the coloured dots on the graph thing in the right place in order to power up the books, and I KNEW I had them in the right place... little did I know that I had to push a near-invisible button to activate it. ARG!!!

At least I didn't run into any problems like that in Exile. Heh... even though Exile was very easy, it was one of the most amazing gaming experiances I ever had. Riven, even though I finished it, just pissed me off in the end.

I got so angry at Zelda: Majora's Mask that I couldn't finish it. I don't think I've touched the game in nearly 2 years, yet I think I'll finish it someday.

Word.
The worst part about those cocksuckers is they are always in a room you must enter from the top. That way, the second you come down the ladder, they are in perfect position to ALWAYS hit you with a lobbed eggplant the MOMENT you enter the room. ARGH

I almost launched my PS2 out the door playing Tiger Woods 2003 on Sunday. When you get to that last level, you better play perfect golf.
Xenogears for the PS1 frustrated the hell out of me. There was one point where I got stuck in the same spot and couldn't get out, and all three of my saved games were around that point.

I say NFL2k3 on my PS2. I played 20 straight games with no penalties called on the comp, guys drop passes when they are wide open, and if you have an OK line, it is difficult to get a pass rush, and your line doesnt feel like protecting the QB on some plays. Very, very frustrating.

I have to second the Stuntman remark from krakken. That game was SO hard, but hard in a good way because I never gave up on the level or would always come back to it later.

Right now, I am having a bitch of a time finishing Super Monkey Ball 2's last level in the story mode (level 10). I also had problems with every other level, but most of the individual boards are fun enough to keep trying (especially the 8 rings board).

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. "The Driver." Worst... mission... ever.

I've beaten it three times -- once on my own save, once on a friend's and once on my wife's. Unlike some GTA missions that get easier with practice or with revised "ah, THAT'S how you do it" strategies, The Driver is absolutely _brutal_ even when you know the route, the enemy's tactics and the surprises along the way.

Ah kind of like the very last mission (Protect the President, I think) on 'Driver'. Lets give you the slowest (at least heavily armored) vehicle we can, make all the gangsters and all the police come after you, and you have to drive across half of New York before time expires.

OH YEAH, I remember that mission. I did that thing, off and on, for at least 8 hours before finally beating it. Of course after beating it finally, I proceeded to keep playing it long after just because of how difficult it was. (But it was a fun difficult, ya know.)
