Default Video Game Horror Stories

Write down tales of being pwned that are simply too unbelievable to exist.

I had one of those moments today while playing Medieval 2 Total War. I was playing as the Holy Roman Empire (strong but boring, they don't have very many unique units) and the Pope, being a bastard, orders a Crusade on Constantinople, which recently fell to the Mongols.

To those not learned in history, the Mongols struck with the ferocity of a modern day army in an age when most soldiers still fought hand to hand. Huge hordes of bow men on horses allowed for rapid mobility. And that's what I had to face with the slow, but armored infantry of the HRE. I'd rather play as the Spanish against the Mongols (Spanish have a lot of javalin units).

Anyways, I conquer Constantinople, but suffering grievous losses. I can't resupply it (it's surrounded by Mongol territory), but in retrospect, I should've upgraded the city to a castle. Anyways, the various Muslim armies call a Jihad against Constantinople, which I hold. This cannot end well.

The Mongols throw a Jihad army at me, which I easily defeat. Then Tamerlame (uber Mongol dude who started up his own kingdom in Persia) himself shows up at my fucking door, with elephant artillery. That's right, he had fucking elephants with fucking cannons on them. They trample all of my infantry, and I just surrendered. There was no possible way I could've won it, even without the elephants.

Then I lost Milan to the French in the same turn. Fuck that game! I'm going to restart my Spanish campaign (I left it after the Pope excommunicated ME for having war declared against me by the French and the Portuguese. wtf)

I hate it when the developers are too lazy to actually design good AI, and just give it more units/resources to compensate for shitting AI coding.

Hmm...

Back in the day when some of the Pre-BF gang were all hanging out together, we were playing Team Melee on Acropolis. Me, DarkWolf, and BlackWolf were teamed up against PirateFace, the-bastard, and some random loser named RedCloak.

We picked Zerg as our starter, and were quick to set up a terran expansion, which I managed. We thought we were badasses with our unique army of Queens, Ultralisks, Medics, Tanks, and a few High Templar. We were curious as to why we had seen nothing but protoss units from the other boys. Then we figured it out. Even though I was constantly sweeping the map with my comsat stations, the other team had managed to accrue an army of naught but DARK ARCHONS.

We watched in horror as our own loyal army ravaged our base like a virgin on prom night.

Because if you piss the pope off too much, he'll excommunicate your ass, and then the other Catholic nations will start attacking you, and that is not good. That, and I need to conquer 45 territories to win, and I had only 20 some, and there were 60 turns left (ie, not enough time).

I Brought This Upon Myself

I was playing as Zerg against 5 Terrans during a single player game. I constructed a huge army and turtled within my base. I often expect the Terrans to attack my base and have my defenses oblitherate their army, however they never came. I waited and built until finally I reached my build limit. Not wanting to wait any longer, I launched my Zerg swarm against the strongest Terran forces on the map, the yellow group. On my way there, I ordered my units to attack anything that moves. Those Terran, who too have built an enormous army, engaged my forces when I attacked their first outpost. A gigantic battle ensues and my army was destoryed by a combine force of Terran troops. The Terran themselves lost almost everything that they threw at me. Unlike me, they have a reserve forces and I have to rebuild from the ground up.

In the end, I won a pyrrhic victory. The moral of the story is, attack when you have the opportunity, especially against Terrans and their defenses.

That's a problem I have in a lot of games, I like to use the uber-powerful units that are available at the end of the game. However, most of the time the enemy is only interested in beating me as soon as possible, so he'll rush me when I try to tech.

I don't understand why they don't have a strategy game where you start out with tanks and carriers and shit right from the start. It's always "Start out with one piddly worker and a command center and work up from there". Who decided that shit?

That was the problem when I play StarCraft sometimes. I launch my swarms against the puny Terran in the name of my Queen Kerrigan and I met minimal resistance and loss. Other Cerebrates even complained that I wasted resources. They destoryed their army trying to breach my defense and they themselves become defenseless.

Ok, people will launch their armada and meet another armada and everybody dies. You are left with whatever you have left.

Not always if you play single player campaign.

History. Leaders often have to start out with nothing when they want to build an empire. For example, Cyrus the Great have to build Pasargadae in order for the Persian Empire to function. In order to give gamers an authentic feel as to the struggle of leaders, they decided to give you only the bare essentials.

If gamers want to kick ass the monent they start playing, just play with cheats.

Another story was when I was playing BF2. I was on Wake Island pwning Chinese. When America/ I was about to win, some dude on the other side left and the server shifted me to the side of the Chinese to make the side equal. I lose because the server need to balance the team. I went to server's forum to complain and quit the clan that ran the server.

So the entire forces of Aiur are not at your command when you are fighting against the Swarm? wtf. Same thing in FPS games; the agency that the player belongs to sends the player into combat with only a pistol or even just a knife.

Executor, you are not given the entire forces of Aiur because they are needed else where. Just as the evacuation of the civilians, guarding your flank, holding off additional reinforcements...

Almost nobody expected the portal of hell would open on Mars, therefore nobody will carry a BFG around.

Besides, it is not like you will be fighting the boss the moment you start playing. You will probably be dealing with some cannonfodders. Think about the first part of the original Call of Duty. The first German you enountered was carrying a bolt action rifle, faced away from you, and taking a leak. Do you really need M1 Machine Gun to kill him?

Hell yeah.

I'm thinking like, the first level of Halo. The captain gives you a pistol without any ammo in it, ffs, and that's on a military spaceship that's being boarded. wtf

Yeah, I know. I don't know which is worse, having the games being decided by one really good guy, or team stacking. Especially with no admin around.

LOL, the first Russian level in Call of Duty.

So we begin on a boat going over a river or canal or whatever going into Stalingrad, or the remains of it anyways. So as we're going across this prick is lecturing us and Stukas are flying over us. Pretty picture. Finally the boat is bombarded right before we get out. Ok, so I wake up, I'm relatively ok. Then I try to get a weapon. No deal, I get stuck with a casing of ammo. THAT'S REAL USEFUL. lol, so anyways that part took my awhile to find the guy to follow.

Man I love that game.

There's a game on Sega: Genesis called "Weaponmaster".

It's not an amazing game, it was one of the myriad of Street Fighter clones that came out, though this one was better than most. It's hook was, that your fighters all had various weapons. There were hidden moves that would do a "fatality", but there wasn't that little fatality indicator- if you did the right move on the winning match that dropped your opponent's energy bar to 0, you won.

So, I'm playing along, and I get to the match against the "girl character". Who is, like most female characters in those games, really fast with a shorter reach.

I fight her, and lose. Well, wasn't a big deal, she was always a pain because she'd combo lock you much more often than the other characters.

I lose again.

And again. And again and again and again and again.

Well, that happens sometimes. So I go fight again. I spend a round basically blocking myself to death, because her combos are so constant that if I stopped, I'd be locked again. The next round, I play really carefully and win. The third round plays out just like the second round. I get her down to where I couldn't even see her health bar, and I was barely touched. She then combo locks me from 100% to zero. Couldn't even block.

I tore the cartrige out of the Genesis with the power still on and flung it across the room. It dented (but did no real damage) the cartrige, and struck the venesian blinds about five inches from the end of one of the strips, kinking it.

To this day, in my old room in my parent's house, that freaking blind is still up, and still has the kinked bend in that one strip. Nobody has ever really asked about it, the probably figure one of the cats did it. So every time I look at it, I can remember why that stupid kink is in that blind, and remember that god awful game.
