What's the thing you hate most about a game you really like?

I won a dedicated Smashing Drive and it's great but the last route has you drive pretty much all of New York with NO checkpoints and maybe 2 seconds to spare. Each time you fail, you have to start the whole thing again. Sure you could quit right there and let the time run out but by this point, you've beat all of the other routes and it's the only way to "beat" the game for the high score. Bah!

It got so bad at times Id mute the TV. 

Link to the Past for Gameboy Advance was ruined by adding hyuh hyuh HIYAH! to the sword swings.  I should see if someone fixed that in a rom patch.  ---goshdarn--- I was so mad about that $30.

Control for Xbox One has map colors that are very, very difficult for me to see the differences.  Ive been meaning to send them an email and beg for a colorblindness patch as its an otherwise very interesting game.

Yeah, that bug sucks. It only takes four hits to deplete your life meter.

The ---smurfing--- map in Jedi: Fallen Order and the lack of fast travel. I do genuinely love the game, but those were huge annoyances for me. I get the developers wanted to make it so the map looked like one of the translucent blue holograms from the films and when you're just in the first couple of areas, on a single floor level, it works fine. But once you start unlocking the entire map and you've got multiple, multiple, multiple layers of translucent blue superimposed over the top of each other, it's incredibly difficult to use it usefully. It really could have used an option to just highlight a specific area and some kind of wayfarer option to specifically highlight the shortcut routes you'd previously opened up to get back out of an area. The amount of times I was trying to head back to the ship, particularly on Zeffo, and I'd reach a bit I got to via a very specific route and I'd just be thinking, how the hell do I get out of here??? The developers said they didn't include a fast travel option because they wanted to encourage players to explore, but there was honestly no reason they couldn't have implemented it to occur after you'd gone through all the specific story beats of a given world, especially as you're navigating from planet to planet in a spaceship! Y'know, just give your colleagues a quick call to come pick you up from one of the big open areas. The parrying option in this just always felt a bit off to me as well. Over the course of 2 playthroughs the correct timing for how to do it consistently just never really clicked for me, not like the way counters were so intuitive in stuff like the Arkham games or Spider-Man. I ended up having to turn the difficulty down to story mode, both times, after I got killed one time too many by those ---smurfing--- annoying space goat things. Gaaaawd, I hated those things so much! Nothing kills the enjoyment of gleefully wiping out a platoon of stormtroopers single handedly by then getting taken out immediately afterwards by a twatting goat!

The dice games in Gunstar Heroes and Cuphead. I loved the games, but I hated those chutes and ladders-esque segments.

Two very good examples.  I also appreciate that they tried to "do something different" with this game but wish they hadn't.  It's a great game but they do many things to make you want to hate it.  I still haven't beaten it, and I bought the Xbox One S (or whatever the ---fudgesicle--- it was) solely to play this game.  There was some ridiculous jump that you had to make from ivy on a column onto another column.  I had to consult a youtube video and make something like a dozen attempts before I could complete it.  Every time you failed it was back to the checkpoint and battle your way back.  And pray one of those mud dragon pig things didn't spring out of the ground. 

But it was nice to see some representation for gingers.  All they had going for them before this was Little Orphan Annie and Judas Iscariot.

We did play the absolute ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- out of Overcooked 1 & 2, and I still play Costume Quest on it occasionally so I got my $200 out of it but damn.
