Reminds me of when my older brother would kick my ass at sports games and fighting games that weren't Smash Bros. Painful memories...I distinctly remember when I was younger, I always used to play this game called Little Big Planet, which was quite popular when it came out. It seems like a distant memory since I don't play it as often, but some of the levels were frustrating as fuck. More specifically, the "Wilderness" level near the end of the game which is set in Siberia or something (it's never specified in the game). One of the levels had a wheel where your "sackperson" had to go inside of a wheel to get to the other part of the stage, but there were electric traps that would force you to start over if you were too slow. It took me and my siblings hours to get past that one level. Needless to say, we weren't very happy.
I also got salty whenever I lost a round in Soul Calibur 2 that I played with my older brother. Now that I look back on it, it seems funnier that I got worked up. I mean, who would you expect to win? A button masher, or someone who's been gaming ever since they could hold a controller? Honestly, any fighting game I played with my older brother, I lost. Since then I've gotten better at them, but I wouldn't say I'm a professional.
God that game was fucking infuriating. I remember breaking a controller having to play as the Human Torch. You had to kill a shit ton of enemies within a limited time, and his damage was shit.Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects got me so mad at having to play as Magneto who was absolutely shit in the game that I punched my controller into the floor.
I remember constantly fighting with that game's controls because for God knows what reason Sonic speeds up every time you jump in that game and I don't understand why. Simple platforming or falling through a few rings is practically impossible.Sonic ‘06. Sonic never did what I wanted him to do in Sonic ‘06.
I've always thought I was a total scrub at a video games since I could only beat easier games and beat games on easier difficulties (except RPGs which let me powerlevel), but I could beat almost all the stages on F-Zero GX's story mode on very hard (except the first level, the grand prix level, and the final level). Only other challenge I could never beat in that game was the hardest difficulty for the secret cup (IIRC beating all 4 cups on the highest difficulty would unlock the F-Zero AX arcade game's cup/tracks, like beating the story mode levels on the highest difficulties unlocks the AX drivers/cars). Easier than the highest level races on Gran Turismo 3/4, another of my favorite racing games back in the day.F-Zero GX's story mode.
