Five of the Worst Ways to Die in Video Games

"In a multitude of games, death becomes of us sometimes too easily. Sometimes it happened with stupid mistakes. Other times it is a ridiculous death after countless difficult trials, which only results in sending you all the way back to the beginning." | (Alice: Madness Returns, Altered Beast, Culture, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Team Fortress 2)

Camera deaths and the frickin' Souls series Lock On deaths are the worst in my opinion.

Three letters: QTE

Dying in a QTE totally kills the build up, and tends to feel cheap when it happens on the introduction of a button that wasn't initially used.

I agree. I hate to be at the mercy of QTE deaths. RE5 Professional, when that massive boss was chasing you all over the ship. WHat was it's name?Excella?

Dying after a long battle, right before a checkpoint.

Was playing Demon Souls a few days ago and was in 5-2, got to the end and instead of going through the boss door I made a detour and found a bridge I could knock down to the beginning of the level, out of nowhere a guy knocks me off the ledge and I die without knocking the bridge down.

20min later I make it back to that spot, knock down the bridge, and proceeded to the boss which was insanely easy and didn't even need to use the shortcut.

Dying in Dead Space 3 in Hardcore mode.

Fall of the edge in Demon's Souls.

Killing yourself with your own explosive on accident would be my number 1! Funniest would be Drake jumping off the edge on Uncharted. :)

There is nothing worse than a glitch death.
