The 19 most rage-inducing games that fill us with hate

GR: Challenge is a good thing. We like when games test our prowess, or refuse to hold our hands through tougher segments. But when the difficulty ramps up without warning, or we just can’t seem to get a win, it can be a little frustrating. Or teeth-gratingly irritating. Or contemplating-murder-on-the-de velopers-who-put-you-through-th is-torture enraging. These are the games that are so tough at times that they made us hurl controllers, scream like banshees, or cry for our mothers. We won’t count glitches or bugs in our list – having your save game erased or missing a jump because a button didn’t respond is bound to make anyone mad. No, these are the games that are frustrating by design, whether through unbridled difficulty or unfair odds. They may be terrible, amazing, or somewhere in between, but all of these games share a common thread: at one point or another, they became utterly infuriating to play. (3DS, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Devil May Cry 3, Mario Kart 7, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

I actually had to end a friendship over Mario Kart Wii. I nailed my friend with a Blue Shell on the Final Lap, and he N-bombed me.

After the race, I asked to him leave and have not forgiven him to this day.

That seems like a pretty stupid reaction from both of you... But whatever, I wouldn't understand what it's like to be called that and all that nonsense

You admit to not understanding, and yet you call my reaction stupid. That's very stupid of YOU. What would you have done?

Imo the stupid reaction would have been kicking his ass as soon as he said it, but to each his own.

I have family, and other friends, that often stop by. Words cannot express how embarrassed I would have felt, had they been there at that moment. So... that's why I had to let him go.
