    This thread is devoted to all those moments in videogaming where you've desperately wanted to yell "CHEAP!" - where you've felt cheated, like circumstances were against you, or fate simply conspired to see your fate.

    Whether or not it's dodgy tactics, cheating computer opponents or rubberbanding racers, what makes you yell, "LOL CHEAP!!"?

    I'll get the ball rolling by saying - when you're playing an FPS on single player, and your enemy is open to attack.

    You go into your scope and line up a headshot - then they INSTA-HIDE.

    HOW DO YOU KNOW?! CHEAP.

    Erm not entirely in tune with this 'CHEAP' business but maybe when you are playing a shooter that has endless waves of respawning enemies, forcing you to advance at certain points. When you don't realise they respawn you can waste literally hours killing people and there's still always the question at the back of your mind whether the enemies will stop spawning at some point..

    In Mario Kart when you're winning by a country mile and the computer inexplicably catches up to you on that last lap, turning up with a succession of Blue Shell, then tripe Red Shell. AAARGH

    Whether it be Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy, Sephiroth is such a cheap **** with ''Heartless Angel''(brings you down to 1 HP and is unavoidable.)
    Unless you act super fast, he then hits you before you can heal yourself and finishes you off. :indiff:
    And of course, his life bar which is at least 23 times bigger than your own.

    When playing Team Fortress 2 and there's a savagely efficient spy on the other side.

    It's not really cheap at all... but it still drives me insane! :rolleyes:

    To get the obvious one out the way, that moment of immunity Final/Last Stand grants in COD games that gives your opponent the window of opportunity to win a gunfight they lost two seconds before.

    Not really cheap because we can too. Good thing they only have the 1 when we can use up to 99 of them

    Enemy Pokemon getting consecutive critical hits. Now thats cheap!

    When in Battlefield 3 you get killed by bullets that follow you around a corner because of client-based hit detection and lag, as if ruining the entire franchise by trying to emulate CoD wasn't bad enough.

    When in W: EE when an enemy rushes shedloads of T-34 tanks down the centre of the map at you and your advanced 1980s MBTs somehow crumble before them - thankfully I don't suffer from this anymore, having developed fool-proof ways of beating such nuisance zerg rushes

    Sports games where you'll dominate the computer all game, and then in the last minute they'll run through and shurg off any attempt at a tackle and score.

    Escort missions where the person being escorted can be killed. Ala Metro 2033, you're easily killed? The enemies are numerous and powerful? I've specifically set myself up to play as a stealth charcter? Oh, I see, because of you're retarded AI you're just going to charge at them. That's cool. *quickload* *repeat*

    FIFA:
    People who use their keepers as Pro's.
    Picking Barca and Spain every game.
    Scoring Jew goals.
    Quitting in the first 5 minutes.

    Could probably write a whole list for MW3 catering for noobs but mainlyeathstreaks, dead silence and assassin faggots.

    Age of Empires:
    The AI magically knows exactly where you are.
    If you start everyone with 0 resources, they actually start with some anyway.

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2
    The USAS shotgun. 'Nuff said.

    Call of Duty:
    In the single-player when your allies are in a HUGE firefight with a bunch of enemies, you are hiding behind a concrete wall, you pop your head just three inches above cover and you get shot to pieces with accuracy that could win gold in the shooting.

    Minesweeper:
    When there's one mine left to uncover and there's a fifty-fifty chance you could get blown up. The game's only flaw if you ask me.

    In BF3 multi player when you're killed by a Jet or an attack helicopter. IT'S SO DAMN ANNOYING. Don't those mofos have bigger fish to fry.
