It's gonna be definitely Wipeout HD. I've done already the worst boost, which requires a full lobby on players who have already finished the campaign. I didn't have time back then to finish the other two trophies (easily boostable with just 2 players) but finally, I've managed to get it done. I was soooooo happy that all that was left for me was to do grind and just one trophy (75 zones which is easy on DLC map), after the boost I turned off my console and went to buy something to drink. A few hours later I played 2 online matches in The Last Of Us, and my console died. I was devastated, for a few months I was without a console to play on, and during this period, they turned off the servers for Wipeout HD. I've asked one of my friends who work at the workshop who does console/laptop repairs, he said I have a 50% chance that the console will work after the repair, and it would cost me just as much as buying another one. So yeah, RIP my black fatty and Wipeout HD platinum.

I was pretty much done my second play through of Metro Last Light without killing any enemy the whole game for the trophy, I got glitched under a vehicle and hit the melee button to try to do something to get unstuck.. but there was an enemy right above where i was glitched that I couldn't see and my knife killed him.. I love that game but I was so mad xD

A friend borrowed me The walking dead survival instinct. He told me this is a wonderful game, but he was soooo wrong. This is the worst game i've played on PS3. I've decided to rush it to get the plat and get him out of my sight.

 

Now i want to do a faster platinum, because this is my fastest plat and i don't want it to figure in my milestones. That sh1t doesn't deserve more than that.

Do Sound Shapes or The Order 1886 on PS4, I have done it in 3 hours 42 minutes, without even trying to be fast.

I'm sure there are plenty of examples I can think of but probably the things I can consider to be the worst is buying a game and despite looking into it beforehand to see how good it is I wind up really not liking it to the point where at most I will just do a playthrough and not bother to play it afterwords and at worst not even finish the first playthrough and it just feels like I wasted money. Some glitches or a kind of broken game is one thing but that feeling of wasting time and money is a punch to the gut.

 

The two games that come to mind with this are Bound by Flame which was more my fault to begin with since I didn't really look into it much and I didn't think it looked bad from the gameplay footage I looked up but I wound up checking out near the end of the game after getting bothered by something one of the companions did that didn't make sense. Ever since then I always make sure to look into a game more thoroughly and at least try to get it on sale if I'm still not 100% sure about it. It's a shame Greedfall is made by the same devs of that too since it sounds like a cool setting.

 

The other being Resident Evil: Revelations 2. I could only really do one playthrough of this since it was just really boring to the point where I just kept getting distracted by other things instead of playing it. The worst part is there is co-op but it's local only which is dumb because at least if it had online co-op I would have been willing to play it with a friend and go through it that way.

I've got this bad habit of trying to platinum games on more than one system. i don't do the auto pop thing. i find it kinda cheap personally. so id have to say beyond two souls and murdered soul suspect. going through those boring ass games twice for the plat again when i switched to ps4. not difficult by any means. just mind numbingly boring

Off the top of my head, Fenix Furia. I finished the entire game except the last world, and then while trying to get deaths, I accidentally deleted my save file. Then I beat all the levels again, and somehow got it deleted again. Then I got the US list, did the entire lit except the last world again. But the death trophy is glitched, and I've tried every way of getting it, but nothing worked. I never got the plats, they never patched it, and I hid them.

It's really strange that nobody has been able to unlock the death trophies, because the game has never been patched. It's still on 1.00. Nothing should've been changed since people unlocked them shortly after the game came out.

 

So I'm convinced there's a way to unlock them. I think it might've accidentally been given more specific requirements, like Kinetica. There's a trophy on that game for hitting 3 opponents at once, but they accidentally coded it so it only unlocks when playing a specific track.

 

I spent a few hours trying things and didn't solve anything, though.

Hard to pick one without categories honestly, but if I really would have to choose my overall most miserable experience that stuck with me for a long time, it would have to be the Gothic 3 release of 2006. I was still a teenager at that time and did not have too many bad gaming experiences, and it was a better time for the industry too, but Gothic 3 was the first flagship of shit to come in following years. The third game of the legendary and beloved Gothic series, a series that introduced me to the genre of grittiy rpgs years back, the game was surrounded by massive hype, huge promises and mouth watering trailer videos for the time.

 

Well the game was complete dogshit, it played like crap even when it worked, it basically was a big "do wtf you want" sandbox without much guidance or reason to anything, it looked much worse than anticipated because not even high end pcs at the time could properly handle its top graphics, it ran like absolute crap on any setting, biblical loading times after each death or crash, it was so riddled with bugs that even shill gaming magazines then made long videos laughing about how broken the game was, it had game breaking errors and crashes to desktop that took many hours of online research and experimenting to fix and it had several endings all of which were underwhelming as all hell.

 

This was the first big game I remember being like this, completely broken, obviously unfinished and even being shitty and unpolished when it worked, it is standard procedure by shit companies like EA or Bethesda to dump games like this nowadays, but it was a shocking experience in 2006. Several huge patches were dropped, solving some problems but creating others, making online communication and research harder because some solutions to past problems were often no longer working in the new patches, the guru crash error persisted through most of the patches making any progress hard to achieve, some updates even made the game entirely unplayable for me so I had to reroll. I can honestly say that in my first playthrough of the game I spend more time online looking for bugfixes, trying to get rid of the guru error, looking shit up the game was bad in explaining at and most importantly, reinstalling the huge game several times. Years later the game was still shit, the best it would ever be was achieved by community patches turning it into a below average experience, but thats about it.

 

To this day I refuse to fully accept this as part of the Gothic series, for me the series ended after Gothic 2 Night Of The Raven, with Gothic 3 being a shitty spin off. Funnily enough, Gothic 3 has its own shitty spin off with Gothic 3 forsaken gods, which served as shitty dlc that somehow was even worse than the "base" game, luckily never played this myself. Gothic 3 spawned a whole generation of new shitty rpgs that no one with any taste could ever recommend, like Arcania and the famously shitty Risen series. The developer somewhat seems to redeem itself again with games like Elex that look to be at least decent, but I never forgave them for killing Gothic and putting the hideous Risen series in its place. The only thing Gothic 3 didn't do that shitty broken games of today do was having microtransactions because they simply did not appear back then, but they would have cramped that in there too if they could, they were clearly past caring at that point.

Trading in my copy of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile for some game.  I forgot for what. 😂

220px-Klonoa_playstation_front.jpg

 

Trading in my Dreamcast for a PS2. I mean I love my PS2 but....I kinda liked those Dreamcast games.

 

Screwing my save of my first run of The Last of Us Remastered. So when I went for the Game Plus Run....I had shit Upgrades so I couldn't 100% the Weapons and supplements for Joel. So I never finished the Game Plus run. I didn't like the game anyways. 😛

Pretty much the time on Runescape when Jagex completely removed Free Trade and the old Wilderness in place of an inferior Bounty Hunter system and of course, the Grand Exchange.

 

I played Runescape almost religiously back in 2002 - 2007, going as far as to join old forum websites like Runevillage, RuneHQ and a plethora of other places. This was the first online game I really got into considering that this was back in a time when both PS2 and Xbox had minimal online capabilities.

 

Things just weren't the same after 2007 - 2008, I found myself slogging through Summoning and Dungeoneering, finally quit in 2012 after the Evolution of Combat bullshit.

 

Fast forward a year later, Jagex releases Old School Runescape. I've played that game for a solid two to three years almost every day, but as time went on that game fell victim to half assed 'Quality of Life' updates and other crap. I played enough to the point where I was one of 170 accounts with 99 Slayer among other achievements I earned. It was a lot of fun teaming up to do God Wars Dungeon all over again just like back in 2007.

 

With a number of Jagex staff leaving and Old School turning into another pre - EOC, I have absolutely no desire to play this game again. I've poured probably 8000 - 10000 hours, and no game I'll ever play as long as I'll live will likely come close to the time investment I poured into Runescape.

 

I miss the 2004 - 2007 era of Runescape. Not just the game itself, but the community that was around at that time. Hardly anybody is communicative anymore, because somewhere along the line people got the idea that talking and standing around just wastes efficiency, wasting time when they can be reaching for the next skill cape, max cape or whatever. 

 

Some of my best video game experiences and certainly my worst experiences can all be shared with Runescape.

Not the worst but had some bad luck with Sleeping Dogs and Watch Dogs

Funny that both have Dogs in the title but I love dogs.

 

Sleeping Dogs buying all clothes but the trophy didn't unlock, used earlier save to get it again and didn't pop, gave up and year later got it on digital for like 5 bucks including DLC and play from scratch and finally got the trophy.

 

Watch_Dogs have that awful song search trophy, I spent like 12 hours trying to get the last song over two days but didn't find any and after that the game freeze and everytime I boot any game on PS4 it will freeze in 10 seconds, luckily changing the HDD fixed the problem. And then I continued to search the song and finally got it but guess what of course the trophy didn't pop. I had to play the game from scratch again after deleting the game data and save file.

 

The worst was Madagascar 3 game, it's not hard or anything but there's no guide for collectiblea and searching it myself gave me migraine.

Does this count? I have almost and entire Dreamcast and Sega saturn collection. Well, One day my air conditioning decided to leak for hours directly above the entire collection. Not only that, it also flooded a Panasonic 3do and a white Japanese Saturn. I was able to retrieve most of the DC collection but sadly many of my Saturn cases/covers are history. Both the 3do and Saturn have been refurbished and work fine now. Moral to the story is don't place anything of value under a Air Conditioner, I mean the big wall ones. You may cry like I did.

Not sure if this counts or not
Had my PS3 hard drive corrupt on me for some reason and lost a bunch game saves, not sure how or why that happened either probably about the reason I haven't been playing my PS3 as much since I'm still salty about that.
Was pretty close on getting the Platinum for Final Fantasy 13 too, I'm still going to get it eventually probably at later time might save it for platinum 90 or 95.
Had to use my old hard drive, thankfully I had some games on that hard drive so I didn't have to start completely over, but still really sucks losing that much data this was a bit worst than my Nintendo Gamecube memory card corrupting since I had more games on my PS3.
 And if were just talking about games suppose playing Wander and trophies not unlocking, and one of the few games I wish I could get a refund on.

I lost all of my Save states on the Saturn, most distressing was my 100+ hours on Devil Summoner Souls hackers. It's really strange how I couldn't care less if my Ps4 blew up tomorrow with 100 %99 games :)

At this point even corrupted save data, erased save data, impeccably unlucky loses in competitive tournaments in other games, unsporting behavior actions from (pathetic) people, whatever else i'm too busy to think of, doesn't compare to the objectively utter shit that is Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled (online) and even The Last of Us (online) if i'm to extend this honesty. The players, balancing, programming, online, gameplay (in the latter game's case due to poor balancing), etc, is all simply horrible in both games, and it is not subjective. The amount of playtime + some evidence I have across both games (the latter of which PlayStation itself told me in 2017 that I had 172hrs in) supports my claims completely 100%, not mostly or 99.9%... 100%. 

 

I'll also give an honorable mention to Rocket League (which is in-fact an amazing game), a game's multiplayer I've primarily retired from, but the issues there are far less, quantitatively, with the only important ones being simply the abuse and toxicity typed in the quick chat by assholes (who do such a great job at supporting my warranted skepticism of humanity) and their childish actions such as purposely helping the opponents score against their own teammates.

 

There are very few things that can surpass my top negative experiences, especially considering some of the immensely exasperating nonsense has been going on for years.

Trying to connect to Red Dead Redemption servers long enough to get the base game multiplayer trophies.

Having the game director for FFXIV have to come out and blatantly say "No we're not allowing you to make realistic child characters for ethical reasons" because they knew there'd be so much child porn and even more questionable erp.

Spending time in a MMO. Ironically I had some of the greatest moments there as well but....the bad ones overshadow the good ones.

At some point there was a game called Dragon Saga (called Dragonica before). Free2play with strong pay2win elements of course. It looked something like this (putting in spoiler because of image rezolution) : 

 

Spoiler

dragonica-screenshot.jpg

 

The game itself WAS FUN. Awesome implementation and even the pay2win stuff was manageable with grinding within reasons(of course, in the first 3-4 released dlcs, it became horrible later on ). HOWEVER there were 2 major problems : It was a MMO game - human interaction, most of them were less than polite ,so to speak xD and second, it was my first multiplayer game ; coming from a countryside in an ex-communist country, internet was available at a later age. Which means, no idea how internet toxicity worked. Full of dumbasses. Plus, the game crashed under its own complexity later on, since the devs went out of ideas and just added more updates for the sake of updating. The gaming experience went to drain.

 

The only good part : I found 2 friends to whom I still speak even to this day, even met them regularly, aaand an old MMO really builds your character. Compared to those MMO junkies, some angry kid with a tendency of spamming hatemails on PS4 seems like a harmless fly.

 

But as a gaming experience as a whole: I now see it as a major waste of time. I don't even know what kept me logged in for 4 years in that dumb ass 2.5D game. So in conclusion, my worst gaming experience is wasting around 4 years in a MMO game :) 

 

 

 

Also platinuming Devil May Cry 2, that game is utter garbage :dance:

One of the worst game experiences I had was Escape From Monster Manor on the 3DO, it wasn't a really awful game (if memory serves me correctly) but the first person perspective made me feel so sick playing, I've not had that in another game since.

 

The closest on the playstation was soloing zombie mode on Black Ops. You couldn't pause it and had to create zombie trains that could last an hour or more. I'd go to bed at night and all I could see when I closed my eyes where these damn zombie trains, my brain wouldn't switch off and I couldn't sleep.

 

Trophy wise Uncharted 3 DLC.

Really can't remember much bad experiences until recently but...

 

Early Fallout 76. Trophies were glitched and I put in 100 hours to get lvl 100 and beat the queen and neither trophy popped. Bethesda kept promising to fix it for me but nothing. Messed up my chance to be first few players to platinum. Played the game a little more and retired from it since. They probably fixed it now but can't be bothered it play it again.

Two things (both my fault...)

1. Not double/triple/quadtruple checking if the online trophies for InFamous: Festival of Blood were.achievable before starting. Turns out, there is 0 problems UNLESS your account's region is Japanese. 

 

Goodbye 100% account...

 

2. Finishing the plat for Shadow of mordor on the Japanese copy, to find out the DLC is not available on Japanese store. Getting a NA copy, buying Dlc, finishing all, to then find out your main game stats are required to finish the dlc. Now need another playthrough of a game i found mediocre... 

 

Lessons learned: double/triple/quadtruple check everything before starting...
