You can also add Resonance of Fate to that list.

I agree...
But why DMC4? The Blitz was easy. DMC3 should have been there.
ClownBelt  +   1887d ago
Huh? I actually didn't find myself being frustrated on that game. Once you get the second MG, everything becomes a piece of cake...

Anyways, I don't get how FF 13 is frustrating...

Yakuza 3 mini games are frustrating.
LordMe  +   1887d ago
Not to bad once you understand it. But from what I gather most people give up before they get anywhere. I am chapter 6 and not having many problems in the arena.

FFXIII was kind of easy though.

And where is Demons Souls?
Dramscus  +   1886d ago
only people looking for a frustrating game experience play demons souls.
Wasn't it's main selling feature the fact that it's extremely difficult lol
GhostOfSparta78  +   1887d ago
Yeah, I heard Demon Souls was super hard, but it has its rewards. It also belongs with that list.
Darkstorn  +   1887d ago
Difficult does not equal frustrating. If this were a list of 'difficult' games, Ninja Gaiden would surely be on there, as would Demon's Souls.

Demon's Souls was frustrating. Getting killed and sent back to the beginning of the level with all the enemies respawned is the biggest slap in the face. And when you're climbing up towers and slip off the edge of a staircase to your death, that's even worse.
T9X69  +   1887d ago
Wow all those games are easy as hell, throw Demon Souls up there, or even Modnation Racers with its cheap ass AI hahah
CountDracula  +   1887d ago
Call of Cthulhu for PC was a real bitch.
Darkstorn  +   1887d ago
Amazing game, though. Best survival horror game to date. And if you like H.P. Lovecraft, it's beyond amazing.

Then again, it was mainly the difficult puzzles that added the brunt of the challenge. The shooting was awesome.
CountDracula  +   1887d ago
Ha. Yeah I agree completely. But damn were those moments when you realize that they took all your weapons away and a fishy fellow looks at you and yells "Stop, Stranger!" then shoots the brain matter right out of your system.

Ahh!... good-times.

(Boots up the game again) lol
Darkstorn  +   1887d ago
And the bosses! Dagon and those two flying mutant things near the end were terrifying, not to mention when you first see the final boss.

I need to play that game again. I heard they were making a sequel set in Antarctica, but it was canned. Such a shame.
vampstreak  +   1887d ago
how are those games frustrating? They are all easy for me, maybe not ff13 when fighting the second to last boss
EliteAssassin81  +   1887d ago
I can't believe that mario kart wii is on that list. Mercenaries was a fun game, but I dont remeber it being very frustrating at all.
CDbiggen  +   1886d ago
I think any mario kart game belongs on a "top 10 fustrating games" list anyday. Being blue or red shelled in first place seconds from the finish is heartbreaking XD It's one of few games i know that actually punish you for doing well.
Vegetto991  +   1887d ago
I found dmc4 to be quite easy when compared to dmc3, and I didnt find ff13 hard, just monotonous and someone depressing when putting it against other ff titles, I mean it was like rinse and repeat gameplay over and over again, and the grinding was unnerving and boring and bland/

For a frustrating game I would have to go with bayonetta on the first play through if you are trying to get a good score

How about an honorable mention to any Madden game circa 2000-2004. Nothing is more frustrating than attempting to play defense against your roommate and having the AI cheap catch a deflection, only to have the receiver run for a TD because you also inadvertently switched defenders and dove all in one motion.

@Soad: Demon's Souls is only frustrating if you're a complete moron. There is nothing cheap about it, skill and competence will get you success.
FalconR289  +   1887d ago
I found the first God Of War very frustrating expecally on Titan difficulty what a bitch of a game mode and that god of whatever mode that is even more frustrating then titan mode.
KillaFreedom  +   1887d ago
No MW2?
vsr  +   1886d ago
All ex-PS3 exclusives (current multiplats)
nuff said
Smacktard  +   1886d ago
What a terrible list.
lordgodalming  +   1886d ago
It's just another excuse to complain about FFXIII and get hits. Ignore.
matrix001  +   1886d ago
I understand why Twilight Princess was on the list, but I don't know why MGS2 was on the list. That was the easiest of the mgs series out of 1-4..The storyline is weird but if any metal gear should be on this list it should be Mgs4..that was frustrating.
