I was about to kill legate lanius after many tries in new vegas, and the game froze right as it striked him. So much rage.

The original Crash Bandicoot was pretty unforgiving with its crate system.
I found that out the hard way on the second bridge level by falling off 3 feet away from the finish point. I was young at the time, so I took that pretty hard.

Mortal Kombat Mythologies Sub Zero.
I know Handsome Craig et. al. love to trash this game but it wasnt that bad aside from having to press a button to turn around. The one part that made me rage was the boss in the factory stage. He could take 1/5th of energy from you but you could only hit him once at a time and only take a VERY small amount away. The only way to get away from him when he backed you into a corner was to slide thru his feet and that was hit or miss. If you missed he would kick you and take some more health away. I remember once I got him down to less than 1/4th and he killed me with the damn buzzsaw. I dont think I ever finished that game after that epic rage.
Donkey Kong 64
The very last bonus stages in this game involved chasing beavers down into a hole. You had to chase 20 down in 60 seconds very much a rage inducing experience as they would often stop dead in their tracks and turn around. You could also fall into the hole to if you werent careful. I remember flipping out so much my grandmother who was taking care of me as I was a teenager yelled at me and told me to shut up.

I'd say when I was playing Mario 64, I got like 10 stars and forgot to save then my foot accidentally hit the cartridge and I got stuck in the ground and couldn't save so I had to turn it off

I had a memory called that I had beaten several games on, and was working on beating another, and my brother deleted everything. I'm glad that isn't really much of a problem any more.

I was near the end of I-Ninja, a game where you have a limited number of lives, when my sister decided to play and lost all of my lives.

On Runescape I bought a Red H'ween mask (Rare item) for 20 mill. Shortly after I decided to quit playing Runescape for a while and the price of it appeared to be falling so I sold it. When I started playing again it had went up to 100 mill.

Trying to do the boss rush at the end of Final Fantasy 3 then getting owned by Cloud of Darkness' particle beam.

Getting to the premiership in Let's Make A Soccer Team and having the game break right at that moment.

Every escort mission in Final Fantasy Tactics. And watching the end of said game. Seriously, the whole game was awesome, the end just sucked.

All of the Sniper 2.

Getting killed by zombie Goku in Epic Battle Fantasy. SO CLOSE!!!!!!

Sonic 3, Casino Night Zone Act 2. Bascially, there's a spinning cylinder thing there and it almost looks like you're stuck and supposed to jump on it to push it down while it keeps wanting to bounce back in place and then hope to slip through an extremely narrow passage under it. It's an extremely frustrating part, and they give you no indication you can just press up and down to shift it far more effectively while mounted on it.

Also, Final Fantasy Tactics, Riovanes Castle Part 2 and 3. Both parts were so insanely hard. You could lose during Part 3's battle before you even had the chance to act if Rafa (an horrendously weak NPC) made the wrong move, and her dying instantly meant game over.

Besides those, obviously accidentally overwriting save files.

It's hard to decide my exact worst moment in a game but I remember when I made it close to the end of Mission 2 in Double Dragon III without cheating or anything, and the game just fucking froze up on me.

I remember when I was on a 15 kill strike in TF2, and suddenly a spy killed. I was sobbing.

Oh god, those missions were hell. At least there was really good dialogue between Ramza and Wiegraf in that fight. And after an hour of Tailwind and Focus I got a few 1000 jp for black mage :-D

I bought Twilight Princess the day it came out. I have been stuck on that part where you have to catch that fish to go up the mountain to this day.

God I remember that. I remember spending hours like a moron trying to jump off and get underneath hoping id get lucky and it would fly up far enough for me to do so. Of course I didnt know about pressing up or down to move it either. Talk about some cryptic shit

I'd say "every single second of Luigi's Mansion", but this is a worst individual moment thread, not a worst series of moments possible thread. So instead, I'm going to say my first few attempts to beat the rival to become Champion in Pokémon Blue. Back then, I didn't understand training all my Pokémon equally, so I had a level 72 Charizard, a level 45 Haunter, and a bunch of low-level filler Pokémon. Not good when the one Pokémon at a better level than my rival's has a type weakness against his Blastoise.

Rolling balls up hills in Okami. Almost threw my Wiimote at the wall.

if by "Worst Moments" you mean worst ending, i would say the ending to Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team. that made me want to go over to the bastard that drew up the story and rip his miserable head off.

if you mean most frustrating, i would say every single time i died in Realm Of The Mad God. i've raged and come back to that game far too many times, and you will too.

if you mean by worst moment within the game itself, i would still say Red Rescue Team's ending. its an ok Pokemon game up until the end. its actually original as far as Pokemon games go. i got it because i wanted to see how well a Pokemon RPG could be done, which was what Red Rescue Team was. a Pokemon RPG. it was done very well, except the end. fuck that end.


My life for Aiur, Cynofrax, The Aura, Mobius, the Xel'Naga, those kinds of things.

I got a few
1. The first stage of the final level in SPirit Tracks
As if dealing with armored loco trains that follow you wherever you go and blow up on contact isn't bad enough, Spirit tracks had to make it even more harder by speeding them up and adding portals that teleport the little b******s everywhere. And the fact they move faster then light when they're closer to you. As a result i died 7 times.

2.The Alduin Skeleton
Although not a specific moment, I was absouluetly pissed off and nearly broke my skyrim game in half when this happpened. I was fighting Alduin in sovangarde, when the infamous Invulnerable Living Dragon Skeleton glitch occured right when we started fighting him. I was stuck in sovangarde and the last save was 2 quests BEFORE i reached sovangarde. I was never that pissed of at a game before.

3.Mass Effect Three's Ending
Need I say more?

4.Halo: Reach; Tip of the spear
Most frustrating level for me by far, Thanks to the two turrets half way up the hill that kept shooting fuel rods at me, i couldn't take 7 steps without finding my body parts littered throughout the map. Then there was this elite that SOMEHOW spawned inside of a rock, he could shoot me but i couldn't shoot him, and low and behold, he had one of those damn heavy weapons.

Super smash bros melee (I was propably around 10 yrs). I don't remember the challenge exactly, but I think I was trying to beat the stage mode (Classic was it?) at the hardest difficulty without continues, and I was finally making progress with Falco. At the point when I was in a fight with metal mario, it was 1 against 1 stock, and almost had him. Then my father came in and blocked my sight to the screen (because "get your ass up from the chair"), and of course I lost. Now I laugh whenever I think about it, but back then, it was quite a shock.

Also, Hitman: codename 47, "plutonium runs loose". Still not past it, and propably will not be for a long time.
