Doors. Why do they have to get in our way all the time?
Some require solving puzzles to open. Some, death-defying stunts. Others just need a heaping amount of patience.
Here's my list of the most frustrating doors in video games.
At the top of the list is a door that's not where it's supposed to be. Who uses a door as a shield? Zombies, that's who.
While I personally find lockpicking therapeutic, I know a lot of people pull their hair out with these minigames. They take forever and disrupt the flow of an already slow-paced game.
Let's get this straight—cake is not a joke. I used to get excited about the prospect of cake, but now I just feel empty inside (from lack of cake).
I don't know about you, but playing a sandbox game like GTA 3 always makes me want to explore the city inside and out. Alas, it wasn't meant to be.
In any roguelike as brutal as this, health is a luxury you can't afford to spend. When the doors start taking it away, it's time to start praying for good item drops.
Lots of doors and tank-like controls. With ten minutes for every in-game hour, waiting for the bar to open can be a nightmare.
If you're ever in a rush, these doors will be sure to punish you. There is a way to spot them by opening up the Game Boy Horror screen. The things I wouldn't do for a fire vacuum right now.
I know these might look like wide targets, but you have to approach them from a certain angle. And then there's the times you're being chased by a maniac with a chainsaw when your player 2 decides to take the same exit you were going for.
My eyes glaze over just thinking about it.
These guys were all jerks. I'm not getting married just because you say so! If the bouncer at a club gave me cryptic clues to go on a fetch quest, I don't think I'd want to dance there.
Missed a key? Time to go back and scour the whole level for it.
The golden claw door is part of the main quest and these dragon claws are the only time you'll ever have to rotate items to solve a puzzle. The only time.
And there are no tutorials, no hints from NPCs. None of the loading screen tips tell you that you can rotate items, either, and there are literally hundreds of different loading screens!
