    We have threads based on our accomplishment, and threads based on hard bosses and such.
    But now its therapy time. Now its time to tell us all about the hate and frustration your feeling at games right now, or frustration you have felt in the past.
    After all, everyone has those moments when your ready to throw your controller across the room in a slew of swear words and storm off to bed!

    So to start off, last night I was playing Ocarina of Time on my Wii, and I was doing the Epona race. I have done it before, but for some reason I kept getting destroyed last night! I have literally spent 1000 rupees trying to beat this guy! :angry:

    Chavosaur you changed your avatar and I am never going to recognize you now. Y U DO DIS

    Anyway - Little brother won't play Borderlands PC co-op with me because he just bought Borderlands 2 for the 360. Meanwhile, I'm too poor to afford it (Target paycheck? Yeah, right.) and even when I buy it I won't play it with him because pc master race.

    Edit - I guess that's more frustration with my brother and my wallet. But it's game related, anywho.

    Sword of Kings: 8 hours of Starmen Supers and NO DAMN SWORD. I love EarthBound as much as the next EB fanactic (probably more), but that was too much for me.

    I have been getting my ass handed to me in Persona 4 trying to battle Kanji's shadow.
    I have tried everything and I still keep losing at that battle.

    In Crash Bandicoot: the Wrath of Cortex, the four hub world boss in Crunch with the elemental mask of wind. OMG, That boss fight was fucking difficult. It took me twenty tries when I was playing the game for the first time.

    After around the 5000VR mark on MK7 online races become really frustrating. Simply because everyone is really good and the whole race turns into a mad dash and the winner is based purely on the items you get.

    Earlier I played 5 races in a row where everyone finished within 3 seconds of each other and one of the winners crossed the line with a bullet bill. :glare:

    Persona 3 and 4.
    Get the boss to a little bit of health, you and use an attack thinking it will work, the attack miss or doesn't do much, the boss pulls out an attack that kills you, and....

    I haven't been able to play for a while now. Lack of tv access and all that.

    That's plenty frustrating.

    I played NSMB2 for an hour trying to find how to get to the world fireflower-A. Turns out i missed a rather obvious flying block exit...

    It's incredibly frustrating how much my skills have deteriorated over time. For instance, 20 years ago, I could utterly PWN Ghouls 'n Ghosts, could practically beat it with a blindfold on, but now when I play it, it's a struggle just to get to the first boss.

    Mario games always frustrate me when its the collecting the power stars games.
    I try so hard to find them all without a walkthrough...
