    Rules of the thread are as follows:

    1. Post your most frustrating video game moments, even ones that still currently frustrate the hell out of you.

    2. Request a helpful solution to your artificially induced agony.

    I'll go first,

    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    -Water Temple

    -VORTEXES!!!!!

    -HELP! I've tried everything, videos, FAQs, nothing seems to help!

    http://video.google.com/videosearch...le+vortex&hl=en&view=2&emb=0&client=firefox-a

    I keep getting stuck on the last 2 vortexes, sucked right in by swimming along the wall trying to reach the first ledge -OR- unable to get by the first of the last 2 vortexes using metal boots! Help!

    The Water Temple is arguably the hardest temple in the game. For the vortex thing just take a different path each time. I remember that part taking a while for me too when I did it.

    As for my most frustrating video game moment?

    Probably when I was playing Pokemon gold as a youngin and tried to catch a Ho-oh with a Ultra ball. Took me forever.

    Okay, I got by the vortexes, but now I'm stuck trying to get the block(which I bombed a wall to get to) onto the switch so the water level will rise in the small room.

    *ARGH!*

    Best advice I can give, and it'll sound contradictary. Take it slow, kill some flood in an area and back off to recover. If you try to rush things they'll overwhelm you. The most difficult part will be when some of the flood carry rocket launchers. I can't remember the locations of the rocket weilding ones, but I think I recall one standing on top of a certain crate.

    You'll also want a decent medium range weapon like the pistol or even the assault rifle and have the shotgun for close. Don't rush the flood and shotgun them in the face and let them come to you.

    Ugh, don't remind me of that God forsaken level, and on Legendary, no less.

    :cry 

    I did exactly what Daggers said, and eventually got through it. Take it slow, don't rush, and let them come to you.

    Afro Samurai. The Boss battle against the dude with the Flamethrower. (can't remember his name) but he one shots you. Its highly frustating and the camera really makes it even more annoying.

    Command & Conquer 3. The whole fucking game.

    Call of Duty: World at War on veteran difficulty. Its the moment you realise Tryarch don't know shit and just make the whole experience frustating based soley on how cheap the enemy AI is. Grenades from any where, at any time, in the exact location in plenty of quantity. I'm pretty sure the birds shit Grenades too.

    Good job man, you officially beat the hardest temple in the game, if not the hardest temple of any Zelda game.

    ^ this, granted, jumping right into Vet, with no prior CoD knowledge, and my only other FPS experience being Halo 3 and Goldeneye, may not have been the smartest thing I've ever done...

    Disgaea 2 : Getting the Treasure Maps.... DAMN YOU AMBLING PIRATES!!! GTFO!
    ^or really anything relating to random drops

    Any game that ever emulated the Turbo Tunnel.

    Without a doubt, because you have to do it in a specific order, with keys and whatnot...otherwise, it is hopeless! Whenever I play through it, I use the strategy guide so I know exactly how to do so. And it still is a pain in the ass!

    I remember years ago, back when Resident Evil(PS) first came out. I played that game for a while. Here was the problem, I just got done at the guardhouse and got back to the mansion with all the hunters showing up. Only problem, being I didn't master the art of playing yet, I used all the herbs and first aid sprays! It was time to face the snake again...I was on the lowest yellow caution level, so I was damn near to the point of being at danger, and I had saved right at the bottom steps that lead up. I never was able to beat it because I was hurt so bad to the point of hindered movement. I had to start a new game! (DUNT DUNT!) I went for days trying, and just gave up for a couple months before I started all over again! Now a days, I can tackle the game with no problem! But that time period of when it first was out and I couldn't do anything...FEH!

    Mega Man and Bass: King's/Dr. Wily's Castle as Bass. At this point, I can get all the way up to the Wily Capsule, but Wily keeps killing me. I don't even want to think about how hard this castle is going to be as Mega Man :cry

    I'm pretty sure it is hands down the hardest temple of the series.

    Seriously. This game is a prime case of a game not getting harder at higher difficulties, just cheaper. First CoD game I havn't beaten on Vet, just because it drove me damn crazy.
