The Most Frustrating GIFs Every Gamer Has Experienced ...

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.

1. Rainbow Road

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.

2. NEVER Making THAT Jump

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I still can't make this jump. Yes, I've tried. I literally try like every six months. I suck.

3. When They Get Beginner's Luck

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Actually, anytime anyone plays for the first time and pulls off some massively impressive feat, it's aggravating and annoying and generally awful.

4. When You Die Right before the Checkmark

(Your reaction) Thank you!

SO IS THIS.

5. When You Keep Dying in the Same Place

(Your reaction) Thank you!

There is nothing more maddening than this. Absolutely nothing.

6. When the Game Has to Rub in That You Died

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.

7. The Never Ending Staircase

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.

8. That Stupid Baby Penguin

(Your reaction) Thank you!

But back to the subject of Mario, I hate that penguin.

9. That Feeling when You've Killed Every Enemy

(Your reaction) Thank you!

BYE, GUYS. SEE YOU NEVER.

(Your reaction) Thank you!

How does this happen? How does this always happen?

11. The Maps

(Your reaction) Thank you!

The only thing I really hate about maps is navigating them. It's boring and it takes forever when I just want to plaaay.

12. Those Loops

(Your reaction) Thank you!

But once you perfected this, it was pretty cool, right?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Running across something that makes no sense whatsoever just leaves you sitting there, staring at the screen and questioning your life choices.

14. It's so Much More than a Video Game to You

(Your reaction) Thank you!

IT IS NEVER JUST A GAME.

15. That Curve

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Video games make me paranoid about soft shoulders.

16. Getting Hit

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Any time. Ever. Even if it's your fault. It always sucks.

17. This Run

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This is me. Not when I play this game, either, just when I try to go for a run.

18. WTF? Part Two

(Your reaction) Thank you!

The Sims just … they're the Sims.

19. Why Fly?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.
