Most Annoying Game-Over Screens Ever

Nobody likes to see a Game-Over screen. As if knowing you suck isn’t bad enough, some games rub it in by torturing you with really annoying Game-Over screens. What could be worse than having to watch your demise from multiple angles, or sitting through the same long-ass cutscene of the world ending every time you fail? Tack one of these onto a tough boss fight, and you have a perfect formula for gamer rage. We’ve hand-picked this lot of Game-Overs that are irritating enough to be hilarious (when you’re not suffering through them repeatedly in the actual game.) Enjoy the show!

    Surely, the most annoying I've ever saw was the Dead or Alive 4 one. Godammit, that clone can make anyone nervous.

    When I was little I couldn't play Majora's mask because I was too scared I would forget the timer and the evil moon would get me. GAME OVER YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!

    now I feel obligated to share the best game over ever thought up by anyone, ever; You and Your Friends are dead, game over (Friday the Thirteenth) Even better is this; You're dead Your family's dead Your fuckin' pets are being skinned alive Your mom's a fucking whore The whole world hates you You're going to hell Live with it. Game over. (Angry Video Game Nerd, Friday the Thirteenth review)

    I am amazed Too Human wasn't on here that scene made to many puppies die... not by me of course random, hobos outside were driven insane by it.

    MvC2 Arcade, Blarg. "Don't you want a rematch?" While this god awful song plays, and the timer runs out.

    "You're Dead" just seems really unsympathetic.

  • QuestionMarc - November 7, 2009 2:09 a.m.

    the most annoying has to be call of duty 4 death
  • Dr.Salvador - December 5, 2008 12:33 p.m.

    The COD4 ones made me want to eat my gamepad
  • gatornation1254 - November 19, 2008 1:10 a.m.

    The Majora's Mask game over pissed me off the most.
  • Baconator96 - November 18, 2008 6:09 a.m.

    dont know why, bur GTA 4's death screens always piss me off. I dont want to watch the damn cops back over my dead ass in grayscale slowmotion, i just want to go blow more shit up!

    @Y2Ken The real issue is how goddamn long it takes. You die, and lie on the ground for about 30 seconds. Then this metallic-ass Valkyrie thing comes down and slowly carries you off to Asgard or wherever. Valhalla, that's it. It's like Mass Effect's elevators became sentient.
  • Wizrai - October 14, 2008 9:59 p.m.

    Hmm I think Crisis Core FFVII was pretty annoying since dying = re-load game and you can't skip movies...so you are up to a boss that will kick your #$%^ just to wait 5 more minutes before trying again.
  • Y2Ken - October 13, 2008 11:03 p.m.

    Nice one. Isn't the Too Human death sequence supposed to be really irritating? My fave deaths are the classic Metal Gear Solid and also State of Emergency's "You've been killed!"
  • kaythanksbye2 - October 13, 2008 8:51 p.m.

    I'm pretty sure it was in the cheesiest game songs article. If it wasn't in the article itself, they definitely played it on the podcast when talking about it.

    What happened to the "You are dead! DEAD! DEAD!" song? Is that in another feature?
