    I hate gacha games. You want a particular character so bad, but so many times the game somehow KNOWS what you want and deliberately goes out of its way to keep that character from you. And in many games the higher-level content is accessible only by using certain SSR characters that take thousands of dollars to get just a few of them. FEH is a LOT more forgiving in many of these respects, but even then it can be frustrating for those of us who are less tactically-minded (and even then that doesn't get rid of the randomness of the summons). For example, the latest Grand Hero Battle, Conquest!Takumi (known in the game as Fallen Takumi) has a very frustrating map - reinforcements, weapon does damage every 3 turns to every enemy in three columns of tiles - in Takumi's column, and the column on either side of him, TWO Takumis (doubling up on the damage dealt), breakable walls limiting your approach methods. Even ReinLyn + 2 dancers has a really tough time pulling this off, and they're the ultimate cheat-sheet as far as clearing PvE content.

    Digimon Links has been down for 4-5 days now (it went down Saturday) and staff have had very little communication with the playerbase on social media. Yesterday they posted that the game should be up soon, but not much else. :/:

    The last mission in Dragon Ball Xenoverse DLC 6 is mad annoying...

    At this point, I'm pretty much convinced that it isn't supposed to be played solo but with online friends instead. ._. Ah well.

    I hate loot boxes. Seriously, I think they're stupid. I don't care if it's for a costume/weapon/etc. I hate spending tons of money and hoping the RNG system will give me what I want. I want to either earn the loot without the RNG chance or just buy the loot without RNG. I prefer not to have it at all if possible.

    I know you don't have to buy them, but sometimes those boxes just block off content that might make the game more fun for you.

    They're totally fine in mobile games because most of those games are free, but I can't stand it in a full price game.

    Don't you just hate it when you're playing a rhythm based video game, and you mess up at the end and get a 'good' instead of 'perfect'. And once that happens you get to see your score in the end and it ends up looking something like a '99.63%'!!!!

    I can't stand people who decide to target and harass you because you play a 'no skill' hero (see: any non-DPS hero). It's really frustrating, annoying, and unnecessary, and can totally sour a game's experience. I just wanna play the damn game, I don't care how you feel about a certain hero, just do what you do and move on. Ugh, people are so annoying.

    Those players on Splatoon/Splatoon 2 who see your marker indicating you are about to jump next to them so they camp and kill you when you land. I absolutely cannot stand that whatsoever.

    Smash 4 For Glory lag. Seriously, it's annoying. I just want a quick game to practice my smashing skills, but I can never have a good experience thanks to all the slow down (I main Pikachu and it's seriously annoying to recover back to the stage in lag). I could go to Smashladder and get a real match (Without having to play on Final Destination all the time) but that takes forever...

    Ace Attorney games not getting released outside of Japan. DGS seems to have a somewhat valid reason, as Sherlock Holmes is one of the main supporting characters in the game, and there would allegedly be some copyright-related issues if it were to be brought to western countries. But then they had to go ahead and make a DGS2, which obviously we also won't get...

    Not to mention GK2, which wasn't translated because "they weren't confident people would like it". Turns out it's one of the best games in the series. Admittedly, after having played the fan translation, I can't really see Capcom ever making their own translation. It would just seem weird, as they would probably use different names.

    Hanzons asking for healing when I've already died like five times to the enemy Hanzo and then they up and quit the match. It's my new trigger.

    Used to hate enemy Moiras and their goddamn instant death orbs on me, a slow moving zenyatta. Then I stopped caring and switched to D.VA when this shit starts happening so someone else can heal instead. But now enemy Tracers are a pain. And enemy Tracers supported by enemy Sombras? Good fecking bye, I'm out. I swear I stopped fighting an enemy Tracer as baby D.VA because the Sombra's hacked health packs kept healing her when I got her down to nothing.

    It's infuriating, so I'm learning to get better headshotting Tracers as Zenyatta and also working on my hook-kill comboing with Roadhog against Tracer mains. I'm sick to death of being pinched off the whole time as a healer by a flanking Tracer.

    Games that REQUIRE ONLINE ACCESS TO 100%/EVEN PLAY.
    Digimon Dawn/Dusk has a very powerful, rewarding mission that is now lost forever. Why? Because you needed online access to obtain it. You also needed 99% on the file, AND a previous online interaction (DigiEgg creation, ect) to unlock it. Now that the DS no longer has WIFI interaction, I can NEVER unlock this quest and the 2 special Digimon it rewarded you (Calumon and Chronomon Holy Mode).
    Although I'm not a extreme completionist, it's a shame that NO ONE these days can get anything above 98-99%. And Digimon isn't the only game like this, there are several out there these days that locks important things relating to 100%-ing the game away to online interactions. The last Tony Hawk Pro-Skater game is a HUGE foul to this- the actual disc only has the DEMO and you had/have to download the whole game once you get the disk (due to the company rushing the game. The final product is buggy as all get out.) :/

    When you finally tame the dinosaur you've been looking for only to have it get killed 2 minutes later because a pack of dilophosaurus suddenly came out of nowhere, Thanks game, that's only like the 5th time you do that now.

    I really hate how salty everyone is on showdown. Like, everyone. I've blocked so many people lately.

    Ugh, same. For the most part people on Showdown just battle, and after the battle is finished they leave. Maybe a 'gg' is exchanged. But the community is pretty damn toxic and it kinda turns me off from the entire site.

    Lmao Showdown IP banned me for 'spamming' months ago and I've just..never tried to fix the ban. (the 'spam' was a lag-induced multi-post that occurred too often. that day my internet was super bad.)

    I only used it to chat with my bf, I'm not into competitive battles, so no skin off my back.

    I met one person who was really helpful. When he saw my monotype fairy team, he said "oh, nice!" and gave me some good feedback for it. But yeah, lately people have been kind of rude.

    That's actually really cool of him to do. I've never met someone like that on showdown. I remember being harassed because I forgot to change my Greninja's ability from Torrent to Protean and these spectators were going to town with insults despite the fact I continued to tell them it was a mistake. Not a fun time.

    Oh that's horrible. Spectators are worse than the actual player at times.

    On a lighter note, I keep forgetting to name my Clefable.
