55. You got the dumb secondary weapon that only attacks downward/does nothing/whatever again.

56. Invisible timers to complete certain objectives. Bonus points if these are MAIN objectives you HAVE to do to beat the game. Also the game won't tell you that you missed them or even give you a game-over if you did.

58. The game has a weird mechanic for leveling / building your characters. This determines whether or not your characters will be of any use ever in battle. The weird mechanic is literally never explained, so you have to guess and hope you don't screw up your builds.

I actually do too but it was the only thing I could think of at the moment. I guess cus now I'm so used to the game itself telling me the story.

60. Spend a half hour wiggling the cart and praying to the old ones to get it to work right.

62. I don't have the console to play this game anymore. I could emulate it, but IT WOULDN'T HAVE MY 15 YEARS OF HARD-EARNED RECORDS / 100% SAVE FILES / NG+'S

63. You lose the connection to your online game because someone in the house is making a phone call.

When I lived in New Mexico, an incoming phone call would disconnect my Internet. How I longed for the days of AOL.

65. The artwork on the box made the game look cooler than it really is.

Like. Way cooler.

67. The hint on where to go next was given to you in your last play session.

...Journal? What journal? You're supposed to write that down yourself! Like, IRL. Not the game's fault you last played it five days ago and forgot!

Still not fully resolved. I had that issue in Crusader Kings II. I couldn't even get past the tutorial because I didn't remember where I left off.

68. Too bad that ONE continue you actually used on the final boss erased your impressive hi-score that you built up during the entire game.

69. Random encounter interrupts your progress through the dungeon, and then the camera resets when the field re-loads after the battle so you have no idea which way you were facing. Perfect formula for irritation.
