I am vexed!
Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

watching down on us
I'm most used to playing games in third person, so first person games throw me right out of my comfort zone and I have to re-learn how I approach a game.
Banned entirely for telling FE that he was being rude and not contributing to the discussion.
I shall watch down from the goon heavens.

The Wanderer
I've played games of such disparate genres regularly that it's pretty rare for this to happen to me.

Hugging a Vanillite will give you frostbite.

The wheel will turn ever more, but I see pain. I see victory, but pain.

The Shadows Devour You.
Any strategy game set after the displacement of melee fighting by the gun. I'm an abysmal commander when it comes to gunpowder units.

Your army sucks.
Stealth Games, I'm a gamer of the "overwhelming force directly in your face" persuasion. So, I have to fight off the urge to kill random enemies even though sneaking past them is safer. That and assuming that the A.I. is more vigilant than it really is.
Sorry, I can't hear you from my FLYING METAL BOX!

The Final ECW Champion
The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. I've played games that were much much scarier since, but it was still the first scary video game I had ever played through, I'd usually quit things like that before.

Nanostray, for being the first game of its type I actually beat. 2D games of its type anyway, I beat Star Fox too, but that was far from out of my comfort zone.

Dragon Warrior. The first turned taking RPG I enjoyed. Will update if I think of more.
Modified Ura-nage, Torture Rack

Do you need your blankey to fight these monsters?

I'm an Irene!
Final Fantasy VII did this for me. When you can't even save the game right away and thrown into a battle that you could get a game over...(note that I don't mind this so much for platformers/side scrollers, as it's not the same thing), I just can't stand that kind of thing. I mean, whatever happened to starting up the game, and talking to some characters, getting an optional/forced tutorial on how the game works? Isn't that what made modern rpgs nice?

Mostly jrpg plots I tend to not care about anyway. Golden Sun: Dark Dawn also did this to me with its huge ammount of Point of no returns. And little challenge. I may suck at strategy, but... I'm not so terrible that I want to be babied or have the game play itself for me.

Another series in the Sonic series. Handheld-wise, right after Sonic Advance 1, I lost interest(till atleast Sonic Rush Adventure). Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)(as glitchy as it may be) was still fun, but Unleashed felt like I had no control of regular Sonic at all. It felt like a watered down Mach Speed section(and while obviously better, about just as fun, that is to say, not at all)
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
