Be it in a RPG or other game genres, you've probably ran into a dungeon that was either really bad, or that annoyed you to no end. Or both.
Well, I'd like to know: what is your most hated dungeon(s) in any game and why?

Mine is defintely The Great Crystal from Final Fantasy XII. It's a maze to end all mazes, filled with some of the toughest and most annoying enemies in the game. It also has some frustrating timing segments and ONLY ONE Save Crystal inside it, making this area an utter pain to get through.

Any dungeon that doesn't have a visual cue to go on is pretty terrible in my book, so the entire game Adventure is pretty bad in that case. I tried it and couldn't figure it out at all.

Oh this reminds me, the Rock Tunnel in Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow. I always hated going through that place because of the dozens of Zubat's you'd encounter and it's five floors you have to go through if I remember correctly. Also, I never wanted to teach Flash to any of my Pokemon as it was just a waste of a slot so I had to get through it without being able to see much.

The lava dungeon in Dark Chronicle (Dark Cloud 2), the first dungeon has about 7 vertially identical randomly spawned rooms, the next dungeon has about 25 rooms, then the next has about 40 rooms, then the next has like 50. At the point of really not wanting to do another load of dungeon floors you then get the second to last dungeon, 70 odd rooms in a volcano setting, it isn't a bad dungeon at all but FOR THE LOVE OF GOD HAVE SOME MERCY! At least the final dungeon despite being EVEN LONGER is the final one and looks awesome and generally feels like you are nearing the end, but for the lava one you have no idea how close you are to the end which makes it worse. There is a final added dungeon after the game which is even longer but that's after the game ends so fuck that shit.

The game is great, but holy shit that fucking dungeon crawl.

The Dragon's Den in FFVI advance.
Incredibly large, having to switch between three different parties of 4 characters, hellishly annoying bosses...yeah, that was a pain to beat on the first try.

I just remembered what I do consider the worst dungeon I've ever played through: The Temple of the Ocean King from Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass.

This dungeon was such a sore to get through. You had to revisit it and go through the same floors four times over with only minor short cuts available to you each time. There was a time limit, you had to sneak around because of the guards walking around, for some puzzles you had to fetch stuff from all over while avoiding the guards and the lay-out of the dungeon was very bland.

I have no idea why the developers thought this was a fun and/or interesting idea for a dungeon.

Actually 3.
1. .Hack//G.U. Vol. 3 Redemption
Forest of Pain was a bitch with 100 levels of non-stop battles and collecting certain items to advance to the next level.

2. Zelda: Skyward Sword (Hero Mode)
Sky keep was a pain in the ass with their annoying room-puzzles.

3. Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Everyones favorite Temple. The Water temple. I got lost ALOT.

The subway tunnels in Fallout 3 are pissing me off at the moment, but that doesn't make them bad. Not by a long stretch.

The worst dungeons that I've seen are in Wolfenstein 3D - back in the early 90s, the grid system worked well for Nazi Germany, none of which would have happened in the medieval castles that they occupied during WWII.

If it counts, the living quaters in deus ex human revolutions expansion "missing link."

In classic deus ex form you can knock out an enemy, hide their body, they dont come back, nobody finds them, alls well that ends well.
Problem: the living quarters is the only area in deus ex (both in story campaign and expansion campaign) with UNLIMITED RESPAWN. Knock one out and another takes his place. Whats worse is that these extra enemies dont show up on your radar or make noise. You try to hide a body and all of a sudden
"herpy derpy, HEY WE GOT AN INTRUDER!"
I swear I cleared that ahllway, where did he come from?

Even worse is that place is a maze, a maze filled with cameras, and surprising lack of vents and things to hide behind, in, or under. Oh it was so bad....


I'm just a dreamer.

Dark Souls' Crystal Cave is the most bullshit dungeon I can think of at the moment.

Let's see why:
Invisible pathways.
Invisible pathways over BOTTOMLESS PITS.
Invisible pathways over BOTTOMLESS PITS THAT YOU HAVE TO CROSS EACH TIME YOU WANT TO CHALLENGE THE BOSS BECAUSE THERE ARE NO BONFIRES.

I could have finished the game months ago if it wasn't for this level.

While I was reading the title thread, this was actually one of the first things that came into my head. I wasn't sure it counted as a dungeon, but yeah, that's definitely one of the worst.

Not nearly as bad as Snowfly Forest from Vagrant Story, though. Snowfly Forest is not a consistent map, meaning that if you go from one place to another, then turn 180 and go back, you could end up in an entirely different location altogether. What a bitch to navigate.


If I offer to help you in a post, PM me to get it. I often forget to revisit threads.

Goddamn dwarven ruins in Skyrim, Blackreach in particular. Even with the brightness turned up to max that one's hard to see in unless you're playing on a big HD tv.

This.

As a kid I just caught my favorites and leveled them up hardcore so I never had enough Pokemon to get that HM at the time anyways. You can imagine how furstrating it was to go through that tunnel in the dark as a 1st grader.

Not really a "dungeon" but I'll have to say the very last castle in Super Mario Bros.
