| It's been said, but nothing beats "Photo Opportunity." On top of being the lamest mission in the history of the GTA series (OK, maybe not, or maybe so? ) you can fail if you don't quite get enough of any of the people's faces, and you have to drive Cesar's Savanna that is probably the worst handling car in the game off-road. And naturally you're driving out in the sticks where going offroad is the quickest path between the two points. Flip, you fail; screw up with the pictures, you fail. God, that mission totally sucks the meat missile.|
"Snail Trail" with the "spook-o-meter" is an honorable mention, and that mission also bites the big one.
I would say the most pointless (or lame if you want to call it that) mission in the GTA series is "Running Dog" from SA. Completely pointless, I never understood the point, it's not hard at all but it's completely pointless. I don't even understand what it's about, CJ is obviously right when he says Smoke is full of sh*t. Half the time he says a bunch of weird stuff I had a hard time understanding.
But on topic: Photo Opportunity is a pain in the ass, but I always save at Doherty, then go to the airport, get a Maverick and fly to Cesar, from there I have to use that damn Savanna which flips over with ease. Snail Trail is probably the most boring mission, imagine doing it with a police vehicle, no radio makes it even twice as boring. Then the trip back to SF is not really much fun either.

Agree with you there, homie.

Air Raid: When there's one second left, the last transmitter is bombed and you'll hear Zero's annoying voice shouting "CURRRRSSEEE YOU BERKLEY" twice which makes you aim at him quickly and shoot him dead before the screen goes blank.
Supply Lines: When you're only a couple of roofs behind Zero's, you run out of fuel... happened to me now.
Both of that happened for an hour ago. I have started a new game and those two missions rank amongst the top 5 most annoying ones (alongside Life's a Beach which this time I passed with ease getting nearly 6000 and Toreno's Last Flight). I am playing on PS2 now, too. And before turning it off, I passed Photo Opportunity in one try, pretty glad about it! So I thought CJ deserves to get some sleep on a bed and saved at the Doherty safe house.

|Didnt you save it like every ten tags or so...or were you trying to complete all 100 tags before saving...thats crazy|
I have completed the game with no mods (100% ie) only once, That time I had locked Sweet in my garage and did the 100 Tags at a go, took some two hours (had a printed map obv) and collected both the Snapshots and Oysters during 'Drive Thru', just didn't get in the car with the crew.

ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS FOLLOW THE DAMN TRAIN, CJ!
I had to use several cheats to pass that mission after more than 10 tries. Smoke can't shoot.

Snail trail and photo opportunity are not harder missions. I did them in first try. In snail trail when you kill the reporter and pass the mission then you have to go back to doherty, san feirro which is boring.

Its written here. See for yourself- http://gta.wikia.com/Photo_Opportunity
In Trivia its written-
- Originally this mission was very different. the player was originally tasked with stealing a helicopter to meet Cesar, and the photos would also have been taken from the helicopter. This was most likely removed when the decision was made to include the flying school at a later point in the game and give the mission a more espionage approach. Also, this is the reason why Carl is shouting very loudly his comments about Ryder and Jizzy B.

Also i have to say the flight school mission where you have to destroy the three trucks on the runway and the the two moving cars. For about 10 times till i realised, if your helecipter hits the ground its over.
Both are so annoying.
P.s: i havnt completed driving school because id ALLWAYS mess up that last mission some how.( generally because i go for gold or go for nothing, you can tell hiw that went)

Last mission was awesome, not to easy, but not to hard. I did it 1st try.
However those missions which involved long drives and then failed, long live the quicksave ...

I also did the final mission in first try, it was pretty easy compared to other missions, thanks to the Minigun that was available after Vertical Bird mission and to all upgrades I acquired earlier in game. Big Smoke died in a single second.
I only use such weapons for rampage on the city, imo it spoils the fun, no difficulty at all ^^

I also remember during Photo Opportunity, I wrecked Cesar's car.

My most annoying mission was Up,Up and Away !..It was hard enough to kill that soldiers,but also had to destroy the 2 planes and then take the other plane and the boring part with the van,I failed that mission everytime I tried without cheats,I had to use the ``ohdude`` to finish it >_<

"Most annoying" would be fuel going empty while nearing the red marker during Supply Lines. The second "most annoying" is the RC plane being destroyed by the couriers.
The funniest is when I destroyed the helicopter with the dossier inside during Misappropriation.
