When AI partners act stupid.

When I give freebie hits/kills from tripping in Brawl.

Mass Effects 3 ending and reading Bioware trying to justify it.

Holy shit man, that is so tragic. How will you ever recover from the mental damage you surely suffered?

Every second of Mega Man 1. The game is really fucking hard! No E-Tanks. No Mega Buster. And no slide. The worst part is not being able to heal all of your health instantly, there are only health drops from enemies. And I heard that you have to go through the boss gauntlet and fight Wily without healing between fights.

I'm not sure what the worst moment is, there have been too many.

However, I remember this one time I was playing versus on Left 4 Dead against a friend of mine (It was just the two of us on opposite teams, with the 3 bot teammates as survivors), when he pulled me as a smoker from the top of a ladder, and just dangled me about halfway down. He nearly cried laughing, when the bots just ran around in circles, smacking the ladder as I choked to death.

Of course, terrible AI in L4D isn't exactly something new, but still.

Mega Man 1 is a piece of cake up until the Yellow Devil.

I still haven't gotten past that guy.

Oh gee... I wonder how many people who have played Minecraft have had the exact same thing happen to them. I bet it will never happen again.

Anyways... there have been many bad moments in video games for me. The countless trials of Mario Party. Link deciding he would do a line of coke while I was paused so he can do sporadic jumps. Losing to the first boss in what appears to be an a battle you can't lose even if you tried.

I tend to try to play as safe as I can, so I haven't really had many worst moments. I do have two embarrassing moments though that my friends will never let me live down.

1. Punch-Out! (NES)
I lost to Glass Joe.

Hopefully ZJ isn't reading this.

2. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (PSX)
I was in Danger trying to flee from Nemesis. He was shooting rockets at me down a narrow passage and I could still dodge them. I was feeling pretty good in this panicked state. I was almost at the door when he ran up behind me and bitch slapped me. I died.

Playing Dragon's Dogma. One of my pawns got sent back to the rift while I was getting ambushed by a cluster of phantoms. It caught me by surprise and scared the ever living fuck out of me.

Every moment of Rogue Galaxy. Guarding does fuck all, every other treasure chest is a mimic, and grinding in general is a chore. This game kicked my ass.

The Frost Man's stage in Megaman 8, Squid Adler's stage in X5, and Metal Shark Player's stage in X6. But I don't know anyone who didn't have trouble with those stages.

One of mine was when I made a big mistake and overloaded a terminal in KOTOR 1 and in so doing killed me and my entire party in the ensuing blast. Never did that before at that specific terminal and I sure will never do that again ever.

Those were always my least favorite moments in RE 2 and 3, right when I was going to another room, something would get me killed.

Two bad moments for me:

1. Xigbar at Beast's Castle Boss
Having to memorize a pattern and play the waiting game to get in a hit was a pain in the ass. The fact that he had an attack that was almost impossible to avoid didn't help out much. Demyx battle is slightly less annoying in that after beating the water clones the battle is easy until it happens again.

2. Chemical Plant in Sonic 2
Not a pure worst moment in a game but a constant worst moment since a lot of time spent there was trying to get to the surface quickly with it sometimes not rolling into my favor and I had to restart the segment a lot. After those 2 levels the game got slightly easier for me.

A couple recently. The first was during a 2 versus 2 arena match on World of Warcraft. Was down to me and the other guy on the other team, think it was a rogue. We were both down to our last bits of health, and had I used Death Strike (an HP restoring ability) I would have had him; instead I choked and used something else, which ended up killing me. Was pretty mad but I guess it was my own fault, so I couldn't complain.

The second, was more of a funny moment. Was replaying Resident Evil 4 HD, got to the second El Gigante at the forked path. Got him down to his last couple of hits, but then a stray pellet from my shotgun blast hit the platform a boulder was situated on. The boulder ended up falling down, it smashed Ashley, bam, mission failed.

This game is old, but in Chrono Cross, I tried to beat the boss in Tetra Tower, and kept dying. I tried every technique I could.

My first few matches of DOTA2 (all against bots) were all spectacular displays of idiocy with the exception of one match where a good friend of mine pocketed me as Wisp the entire time.
I'm only JUST beginning to get the hang of it (I'm dying less!) but I'm still shockingly bad.

Mind you, I have no experience whatsoever with DOTA and almost none with the entire RTS genre.

Miracles happen.

I remember I once received a hacked copy of Pokemon Red at one point when I owned a gameboy pocket. I played it all the way, and was fully-traumatized by the experience. To this day, I still cannot stand the sight of a Pokemon Red game.

I don't know if it was because of my lack of skill at the time, or some other unexplained reason, but the stage in Spiderman 2 in which you chased Doc Oct as he carried Mary Jane away was nearly impossible.

I retried that stage so many times.

Also, fuck Sagat when using Dan in Alpha 2, fuck em.

Worst...in what way? Frustrating? Aside from trying to S Rank all of Trauma Center (hey, I'm 5 missions away), it's when I missed the final B License Gold time in Gran Turismo 3...by 1 thousandth of a second.

Oh, and Burning Laps in Burnout Revenge. Fuck. Even Criterion knew they were too hard on the PS2, the Gold times got pushed up for the XBox360 version. But I'll get them all on the PS2 yet.

Saddest? Well, most of my games aren't too story driven. But, I'm the type of person who thinks too hard about his games. And, well, when I met my rival in Lavender Town in the Pokemon Tower, where he questions why you're there if none of your pokemon died, and he's suddenly missing his Raticate, it made me wonder how he lost it. Maybe it was...my fault.

You know, Pokemon Black and White could have had an AMAZING story if they actually made you think about whether capturing and fighting Pokemon really was right. And either way, you'd beat Ghetsis, but you'd either fight N, or work with him to create a world where Pokemon really are free. But I'm idealizing again. That'll never happen as long as Nintendo can keep milking money out of it. *sigh* But, I'm rambling.

Other bad moments...when I played Digimon World: Data Squad on the PS2 after being on a Digimon rush, having watched the excellent 3rd and 4th seasons, Tamers and Data Squad...only to find that the Data Squad game was just god-awful. The combat was shallow, there was no map for the area you were in, random encounters would pop up every five seconds, and everything, attacking, registering a hit, showing the next attacker, going to a new screen, pausing, accessing your ITEMS, everything, took a good 5+ seconds to load, at the very least. Meaning it took forever to do anything. Being intolerant of RPGs, anyways, this just really put me off of Digimon games.

This is a tuffy but I'd have to go with getting a super high score in that o e chain reaction game that's featured in a Simple Machine Forums Arcade (think it was at least 5 figures) and hitting the retry button instead of the save button.

I had no way to prove I had such an astronomical reaction score because of that, and never made it back to that score ever again. Other forum members would continue to dominate the top spot, but still not as high as the score i didn't save.

To add to this, playing ANY bad connection on Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. The game is just unplayable in that lag.

Kind of a general thing with me, whenever you accidentally disconnect from your internet or when someone else disconnects on purpose to save face.

Also there was the moments with Entei and my 8 year old mentality of chasing him down.
