#RTCQ Levels (we hate)

3 years ago

Hey RT,

The time has come. After reminiscing about your favorite game moments last week, it's time for you guys to vent all of your frustrations against the virtual bastards that made your life a living hell!

What is a level you played over and over again because you JUST COULDN'T BEAT IT?

There's a little Michael Jones in all of us. Why don't you let him out in this journal?

My answer:
[EDIT: Totally just realized my answer wasn't posted]
Game: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Level: The Fire Temple

Surprised? Yes, it is true; I had an insanely difficult time traversing the Fire Temple because of a STUPID LEDGE THAT SHOULDN'T EVEN EXIST! Okay, so SPOILER ALERT, there's a room in the Fire Temple where you jump around on metal platforms while a wall of fire chases you. In this room, there is a locked door. Now, this door sits atop a rather tall structure in the middle of the room and it appears that trying to jump to this ledge would end with a dip in the lava pit. So, I tried everything else. Hook Shot? Nope. Bombs? Nope. Hammer? Nope. Every single song on the god damned ocarina? That's a big NOPE.
Finally, I cracked. I looked up a guide, I searched for the Fire Temple, and I couldn't believe what I read.

"Jump to the ledge..."

Wat.

All I had to do was JUMP!? BULLSHIT! There was no way that little fairy boy could make such an impossible leap!

But of course...it worked.

But you know what? I still think it's bullshit. The climbing animation is totally off, you should not be able to make that jump, and dear god, NAVI IS USELESS.

Whew! Glad that's out of my system! smiley12.gif

    As a young child playing through pokemon yellow, I couldn't grasp that no matter how strong my pikachu was, it wasn't doing shit to any of Brock's pokemon. So I think I spent the first few weeks I had that game just trying to beat the first gym. And I'm pretty sure that no challenge in any recent game I've played stacks up to that.

    Halo 2
    Cairo Station on Legendary

    It's the fucking first level! It's like Bungie said "On Legendary? Well, get past this and then we'll let you play."

    Fuck that snowboarding level from Spyro: Year of the Dragon in the Super Secret Bonus World. As a child I spent countless hours, probably even days, trying to beat that fucking race.

    Mario Party - Tug of War

    I can still remember the blisters on my palms. At least the rafting minigame had some breaks while you waited to get some coins on the near side but tug of war was just non-stop spinning or death.

    Can my answer just be "The Impossible Game" as a whole? That game will make you strangle people and set things on fire....Or is that just me?

    Star Fox: Assault

    The final level.

    I must have tried to beat it 100 times and since the game was borrowed I never finished it..

    I had some trouble in Ocarina of Time too. I never got past the Deku Tree. Don't blame me, I was 5 or 6 years old and the game scared me!

      If anyone can't figure out that I'm kidding, you've got a problem.
