Check out my first published board game: In the Name of Odin!

BATTLETECH broke my heart in this way. There was a mission I just couldn't get through, no matter what I tried, no matter the amount of grind beforehand, no matter the difficulty setting. And it wasn't even that far into the campaign, it was just badly balanced and I'm pretty sure it had a level design... if not bug, then an issue definitely, where you couldn't target the building you were supposed to destroy as the main objective. Something to do with angles I guess.

Anyway, after attempting that mission several times and not getting any further no matter what I tried, I bitterly abandoned the game. I Kickstarted it, waited in anticipation for years for it to come out, was stoked about the gameplay and enjoyed the experience greatly for the most part... but then that happened.

I'm going to give it another go now that they dropped a few expansions and patches, hoping that this time around it's going to be different... but I'm putting it off so I'm less disappointed if it's still broken.

Probably when I played my ex fiancee in SoulCalibur IV. Fighting games have always been my best genre, SC in particular, so when she beat me badly by movespamming with Talim I just...well, we didn't play much after that.

A friend and I stayed up all night one weekend in high school (this was the mid-'80s, so no online support, hints, YouTube videos, etc.) working through the final dungeon in Ultima III: Exodus, only to have me get the first question wrong and get kicked out of the dungeon.

We were exhausted, and wired, and not reading every word clearly, and I became insistent that the answer was
Spoiler (click to reveal)
the secret word hidden in the runes we had been collecting, instead of realizing that you had to walk through all of the virtues before they asked you the ultimate question.

shake

I never went back.

Something about this makes me think of King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow, but I'm not really sure why.
