7 Stressful Video Game Moments

Jo from GamersFTW writes: 'There are always times when you are playing a game that you find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat, screaming at the TV screen and wondering what on earth just happened. These stressful, and often frustrating, moments leave us feeling emotionally drained and wanting to just turn the game off never to play again.'

Had a fair few of these in Bloodborne being killed repeatedly by bosses.

Any escort mission, ever, always leaves me threatening my controller with a visceral death too.

Overpowered battles in fighting games. I remember some blue copycat character in Dead Or Alive 4 (final boss maybe?) that was just the definition of annoying and overpowered for my younger self at the time!

Also anything Dark Souls related. Though so very very rewarding once you've beaten it. A stressful and challenging video game done right.

Trust me, they are lightweights compared to what SNK dishes up in the old king of fighters games. And VF2 on saturn after learning from you..that one was a problem that only went away when you wiped your saves.

dark souls felt like a game that beat me up. even when I beat it I just wanted to strangle the dev, for making such an addictive yet painfully difficult game. I never felt robbed by the game. More that I wasnt willing to accept that this game had me on the ropes until I beat it.

I would say that last minute attack by the AI that is 100% going to end in a goal on Fifa is probably the most stressful moment. Shit he's got into the penalty area!

Shooting another player in CoD with all your might and they just walk right on up and knife you!!!!

Great article agree with all of it!

Another great article. Definatly agree with Sonic drowning and the witch from Left4Dead, I can never relax until the music has stopped even if I know I've past her. Any time-attack mode always gets me, the more fiddly the timed task the more twitchy my fingers get.
