    Any luck-based minigame disguised as a game of skill. Looking at you, FFX Chocobo race.

    QTEs. Of course I'm going to press O when a Δ pops up. Sonic overall has (d)evolved into a Quick-time game with varying degrees of success. And if you don't like Botomless pits as punishment, don't play it.

    Level scaling, the first time around. I fell into an early trap in Skyrim where I was able to grind Archery, Alchemy, and Pickpocketing fast, but they don't help when enemies get close enough to chop your HP bar quick (thank the stars for difficulty levels). Having to pick and choose early isn't as fun, but it has merits later.

    Nearly everything Shin Megami Tensei does, especially if you're unprepared. Ambush attacks, a luck-based recruitment system that steals from you, and having an elementally balanced team means a boss could kill you turn 0.

    I really hate games that punish you for taking too long on a level. I can understand timed levels (like those in the Mario games), but I'm talking about the ones that don't have visible timers, and you don't realize until the game tells you that you've spent too much time on a level. I remember getting blown out of a dungeon in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. I seriously thought some giant Pokemon was going to come out of nowhere and kill my team.

    Phoebe: Just get out.

    Might as well bring back this thread with:

    Failing to unlock a character that you wanted to have.

    In Smash 3DS, I have failed to unlock Dark Pit. Twice. You can tell how frusterated I am.

    Edit: MAKE THAT THREE TIMES.

    One-hit KO's. I'm not bothered by enemies that can smash your HP bar quickly... I'm bothered by the ones who have some kind of move that means insta-death if it hits. Every time that happens, it just feels incredibly cheap.

    Also, "There is no game in the game slot" when there is. Cue the swearing.

    The general trend in the industry towards rehashing, style over substance, and cheap experiences. A lot of games nowadays feel like soulless cash grabs.

    -Difficulty spikes in the second/third level/world/chapter
    -Difficult Platforming
    -Water levels with air meters

    Am I really the only person who doesn't hate grinding?I love grinding.The only reason I stop grinding in Fire Emblem:The Sacred Stones is because there's no monsters on the map and I don't want to break my weapons in the Tower of Valni or Lagdou Ruins after I beat the game.

    Quick Time Events. This has to be the laziest type of gameplay ever, press a button in time and something happens, fail to press the button you die or take a huge aumont of damage.

    -Disappearing/Unreachable Boss Loot.
    I absolutely hate when I take out some crazy boss and my loot disappears or lands in some unreachable spot of the map. Very minor glitch but incredibly frustrating when you need something out of that boss loot.
