Like the title says, what is the most annoying game you have ever played?
Alright for me it is easily FIFA 12. There's a big rant incoming, so watch out:
Let me start off, FIFA 12 is addicting as hell but it has only 2 problems. Bugs and Glitches.
You don't know how much you can get annoyed by only 2 problems. Well let me explain:
Firstly the gameplay is nice but riddled with bugs. You start the match, okay no problem. Now we break it down to two situations:
A) You score first
B) The opposition scores first.
We'll take an in-depth look at these two situations:
A) You score first:
Alright now you score, no problem. All celebrations going wild blah blah. But then after you kick-off, this tends to happen regularly:
The opposition scores immediately. Yep. It's like they are on ultra-mode, you just can't stop them, 90% of the time this happens. And it's damn annoying, they can even do the most ridiculous tricks and score from the most ridiculous angles.
B) The opposition scores first/they score in general.
Now here is a bug that happens most of the time. If the opposition score, this happens:
A) Your team plays like sh*t no matter what you do.
B) The opposition play like their on god-mode.
Again they can score from the most ridiculous angles, blah blah. Once I had a player who was rated 64 dribble around five defenders of mine, how is that possible?
Now that we've got those two out of the way, there are some more things too look at:
The Half-time/Full-time glitch.
Yep, no matter what you do. The opposition always score at half/full time. You can't stop them at all. But this happens the other way around too. But when it does happen it gets quite annoying.
And say you have an added time of two minutes, it extends up-to five minutes. You can just stay forever passing around near the goal-post and the whistle won't blow!
Now we move on to the next part:
Referees favor the opposition at times.
Yep, bad off side calls and being lenient to the opposition regarding fouls can get extremely annoying. Combine this with all the other glitches and you have the most annoying game ever/
The next one.
Home-Sides nearly always win.
Yep, if you are simulating a game in Career mode, no matter how sh*t/good your team is the home side will always win or atleast draw if they are crap. I've seen some small teams beat top-clubs at home, sure shocks are essential but in this situation, it feels unrealistic.
And then there are also other freezing problems etc which make the game really annoying.
Regardless I still find it addictive to play and I've put in more than 100 hours into it. I'd rate it an 8/10 but it is by far, the most annoying game I have ever played.
San Andreas was another annoying game. (Though admittedly not as close to FIFA 12) but some of the missions annoyed me because I felt that they were pointless and annoying as a whole.
