I'm an avid gamer. I'm a weird gamer, too – I don't branch out often. I still rock Mario Kart, MediEvil, and various GTAs, but still. I understand the struggle. I know those moments that make you want to throw your controller at the TV. I'm here with you. We can get through this. First, see if any of these GIFs make you so angry that you're ready to go on a rage-bender.
RAINBOW FRIGGING ROAD. In every version of Mario Kart, it's the prettiest level and the hardest to beat. Once you get up there in more recent games, it's even more maddening. Augh! RAINBOW ROAD.
I still can't make this jump. Yes, I've tried. I literally try like every six months. I suck.
Actually, anytime anyone plays for the first time and pulls off some massively impressive feat, it's aggravating and annoying and generally awful.
SO IS THIS.
There is nothing more maddening than this. Absolutely nothing.
This makes me angrier than actually dying. Why you gotta rub it in? Why you gotta mess with me like that? Because now I'm shit-talking to a TV screen and it's not a good look for me.
You find these in so many games, not just Mario games. There is almost always a mysterious staircase that never ends and you're just waiting to get to the boss.
But back to the subject of Mario, I hate that penguin.
BYE, GUYS. SEE YOU NEVER.
How does this happen? How does this always happen?
The only thing I really hate about maps is navigating them. It's boring and it takes forever when I just want to plaaay.
But once you perfected this, it was pretty cool, right?
Running across something that makes no sense whatsoever just leaves you sitting there, staring at the screen and questioning your life choices.
IT IS NEVER JUST A GAME.
Video games make me paranoid about soft shoulders.
Any time. Ever. Even if it's your fault. It always sucks.
This is me. Not when I play this game, either, just when I try to go for a run.
The Sims just … they're the Sims.
Where you goin', Luigi?
Now, have you experienced any of these moments? Okay. Take a deep breath. Stretch your fingers. Try again. Or launch your controller at the TV, that's acceptable, too.
