Escort missions. Keeping some stupid, suicidal weakling safe from a huge gang of Uzi-wielding gangbangers = FAIL.
Ratchet's ears - there's no earholes, the auricles aren't "cupped" like ears should be. (Yes, I devoted a gripe to Ratchet's ears. So what? They annoy me.)
Level grinding. In single-player AND online games. Only so much grinding I can take.
Resource gathering/crafting. From Ultima Online to Age of Conan, this has got to be one of the most absurd ways to waste time in a game EVER.
Checkpoint save systems.
"Love story" subplots/sidequests/etc.
Other people - the best and worst part of a multiplayer game at the same time.
"I WIN" spells, attacks, guns, abilities etc. - overpowered to the point that having it in your possession/repertoire more or less guarantees a win.
Omniscient NPCs.
Invisible world borders.
Clipping bugs.
Aaaand... sequelitis.

I agree with the escort missions (especially "Control Room" on GoldenEye). Very annoying to try to keep the guy/girl alive to the end of the mission.

As for checkpoints, agree there too. I tried playing "Legend of Dragoon" on the PS1, but quit due to the (lack of) save spots. At least 45 minutes at one point between being able to save.

Protection Missions when im lvl 30 and the person im protecting is freakin lvl 10 and the only way to get through is to kill the people when the idiot attacks them too when they are just as bad*** as me!(FFTA, "For a friend" if i recall, where you have to beat these monsters while guarding a really weak summoner and if you dont have a character with high speed, the match is over before you get to even move.)
Freakin missions like this that make me want to hit the maker.

I hate that in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (especially when you're still weaker than the monsters in the dungeon, and you run into a "Monster House" and get creamed before you can react.

Freaking one hit kill attacks, even if you're over lvl 100.
Perfect aim enemies with weapons that will kill you with one hit, in packs over 3 ppl.
Random quick time events (or press X button to not get horribly horribly RAPED events) when you least expect it, in a game that doesn't even mention it has them.

OMG! Me too! Though it was suggested by others that they might be covered in "teh fuzz," or "maybe there is a slit in the bottom of the ears."

The thing in video games that annoy me are unresolved endings. What now? I have to waist more money on the next game because you just hyped me up with anticipation. Now I am a fan. Which now I spend every min. online digging for news on your next game and I can't just leave!

Immature players in online games, grow the fuck up or quit bitching when I frag you twice in a row after you spawn kill me 5 times.

Overusage of Cutscenes and dialog for games with bad storylines. Most JRPGS of the modern age are guilty of it though not all. If it's a good story like Psychonauts there worth watching!

Unlockables that the game advertises to you since the earliest trailers, but still forces you to unlock. Like sonic and snake from Brawl.

Also players that leave online games just because they are losing (mario kart DS)
Psychonauts FTW

once a video game annoyed the crap out of me because the interior of the dist ring got a bit cracked and i told my bro not to play it... he did not listen because he is a freakin idiot... so i spent the next several days picking out the pieces of exploded disk out of my xbox 360... but it make a full recovery, so yea most annoyed (indirectly) at a video game.

I had when NPC's get stuck on a corner while following you..

Also when sequels come out that are so horrible, I just keep playing the previous one.

Games that still incorporate "Loading..." screens when hitting the edge of an area.

Focusing on graphics instead of gameplay. I'd rather have a game that looks like shit and plays great than a game that looks great and plays like shit.

MMO GRINDING!!!

When will they ever make an mmo that ISNT centered around the same damn standing around taking turns to hit eachother combat thats sole purpose is to pad out the game, because it's not actually fun.

I've had 3 ideas for mmos, all better than the crap I see on the market today.

Check out champions Online mate, it is supposed to be quite action packed. COming soon.
 
Things that annoy me

In FPSs not being able to carry a pistol and two long guns. It makes it seem like your character has OCD for the number two and refuses to acknowlegde that the holster on his hip (CoD4) is used to carry a pistol. This bugs the ever living shit out of me.

Pistols being more powerful then long guns (BLACK, CoD2, most other games) pistols are close range offensive weapons with generally low muzzle velocity and do not yaw inside flesh like a rifle round does. However in games like BLACK a Glock 17 (a 9x19mm pistol) can spell doom with one round for an enemy that eats about twenty rounds from an AK47 (7.62x39mm). This bugs me because it doesn't make a damned bit of sense.

Utter lack of explainations for anything in game (Turning Point: Fall of Liberty) nothing grinds my balls like just being teleported into a senerio with no explaination of why. This is made especially frustrating when you have to check your pause menu to know what the fuck you're there to do.

Sending me against an army alone (almost every FPS and fighting game on the market). This annoys me because I fell in love with being able to lead a basic roit in Freedom Fighters and it distracted the enemy from shooting ME.

Nearly unkillable enemies (BLACK, Medal of Honor: Airbourn) yeah, BLACK crowns this with enemies eating upwards of 200 rounds from a light machinegun before breathing their last. MOH: Airbourn had those gasmask mini-gun weilders who had might as well have been early model Terminators.

Enemies who throw percision grenades prolifically. Nothing boils my blood like watching THIRTY gernades decending from the sky onto my position, and a game has no better "FUCK YOU" skill aside from instantly teleporting you outside of the gamespace and dropping you for eternity AND giving you a checkpoint while doing so.

Supporting AI that is so bad I think a penguin programmed it. See Halo 3 whenever an AI is driving something or just watch one of your allies run into a wall for an hour in most other game.

Sometimes random battles, especially when you're impatiently trying to get to your next destination, whether it be to go further in the storyline or to get more healers because half of your party is dead. I can use Thousand Arms for an example.

*step* Random battle *two steps* random battle *step* random battle *five steps* random battle.

Sounds like the KH series to me.

Back when the PS2 was rising high in popularity, people would praise it because it "has better graphics."

That was the only thing I heard good about the PS2 at the school. Everytime I would bring up the Game Cube, they would berate that and say "the PS2 has better graphics!"

I tried the PS2 and I can easily say that I regret selling my old Game Cube for a PS2, even if it is our only DVD player, currently.

Any FPS game where the AI have effing 10+ grenades while you can only carry 2 or 3.

Metal Gear Solid syndrome probably, cause who gives a shit how a game plays when you only get to play it for five minutes before a half hour cutscene?

EDIT: Oh yeah, what REALLY pisses me off is when I have to hunt for a rare item for hours on end to advance the plotline OR buy an item that is so inexcusably expensive that even if it's 10 hours into the game and you have MILLIONS of whatever currency is used, you STILL need to make money... again just to continue the storyline.
