Gamers are used to overcoming obstacles, but sometimes there comes a moment in otherwise good games where things are suddenly so tedious, hard, or scary that they make you go "You know what? Eff this game". Watch on for the moments in games that made us do just that, and subscribe for a video like this every Thursday.
Guybrush smuggling bananas? Bawdy Ken Masters win quotes? Ian Paul Freeley?

So let's all of us sophisticated adults enjoy those jokes with now our clever adult brains. Beware of rude things and saucy wordplay ahead.
Occasionally you run into an enemy who you can't beat by conventional violent means. Take the non-violent moral high ground though and you're rewarded with victory and more leftover bullets to use on the next baddie. Embrace tranquility and contemplate these times violence wasn't the answer.
The temptation is to play wrestling games like beat em ups: you punch your opponent, do your big moves, hit a finisher, and then pin them. But ask any pro wrestler and they'll tell you there's much more to wrestling than just that. So we did! Ask some wrestlers, that is, about the things you need to be doing in the upcoming WWE 2K19.
Sometimes in videogames you will often find yourself in possession of a weapon or ability that seems great at first, only to discover that when you use it, it's more trouble than it's worth. Here are just some of the times we've encountered that very thing.
Heroes have all the good karma but villains have all the fun, which is presumably why so many game heroes switch sides for the sequel. This is more widespread than we even imagined, judging by the quantity of comments on our last video on the issue. Direct your attention to these seven heroes who lived long enough to become the villain and subscribe to Outside Xbox for a video like this every Thursday.
Skydiving in Far Cry 3, a resort stay in Dead Island, and the tropical getaway in Let's Go Jungle Lost on the Island of Spice: consider, for starters, these videogame vacations from hell that are enough to make you want to stay at home.
What with the covering herself in mud, stringing up enemies and shivving of jaguars, Lara Croft in Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a pitiless predator of both humans and non-humans. See for yourself with these seven ways Lara is the most terrifying jungle predator since the one Arnold Schwarzenegger blew up in this video brought to you by Outside Xbox and sponsor Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Movies get their ideas from all kinds of places, including games, so it's probably only fair that games are ripping off movies with the kind of shameless abandon of a kid borrowing some else's homework four minutes before it's due to be handed in. Consider seven of our favourite examples.
The Walking Dead's Negan in Tekken 7? Ariana Grande in a Final Fantasy? These celebrity cameos in videogames were so unexpected, so incongruous, they left us baffled by what we'd just seen, heard and played.
We recently recalled cheaty videogame bosses, who used tactics such as deleting your save file, learning from their mistakes, or being from Bloodborne. The comments on that video revealed you had suffered similarly unjust encounters, so here are yet more times you folks were bested by a bent boss.
From Dracula's Castle to a tomato-throwing festival to actual literal hell, these non-regulation battle arenas are fraught with risks, inconveniences and garment-ruining tomato juice. Think before you take your fight outside of a standard competition ring, by which we mean watch this video why not.
They say you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. The second option is popular with game protagonists, judging by how we're always battling our former heroes in subsequent games we played as in previous games. Enjoy these ultimate betrayals!
Sometimes the most fun you can have is throwing away the rulebook and mucking around doing whatever you feel like, such as naming Link inappropriate things in Legend of Zelda games, writing your name in lightsaber in Jedi Knight 2, and locking Lara Croft's butler in the freezer in Tomb Raider 2.
The inaugural Overwatch League finals took place at the weekend, with the London Spitfire beating the Philadelphia Fusion across seven tense games of some of the best Overwatch you'll see anywhere. "But I'm a busy person, I don't time to watch all that", you seem to say. Not to worry! Jane and I were there and bring to you now, our 12 highlights from the finals.
A marriage often originates in one person asking another if they would like to get married, in what is known as a "proposal". In certain special cases these are proposed not down on one knee, but inside a game whose less than obvious romantic potential was previously unexploited such as Portal 2, LittleBigPlanet, or Dying Light. Consider these times someone popped the question through the medium of games.
There's no shame in getting a game over from losing a tough battle, or failing to complete a puzzle in time. There is however a lot of shame in getting one of these embarrassing game overs, in which we managed to lose the game through stupidity, ineptitude or on one memorable occasion, pissing off a powerful vampire. Oops.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the new game from Dark Souls developer From Software, but unlike Dark Souls has only light RPG elements, no character creation, and even checkpoints when you die. Will it still demand you "git gud in the grand tradition of Soulsborne games? Find out within.

Consider these yet more times you stumbled on a somewhat unofficial hard mode.
The whole point of arcade machines is to get you to insert more coins, which is why they often employ every trick in the book to get you to keep playing. The cruellest money grabbing technique of all was the continue screen, in which a timer ticked down, imploring you to insert more money, before a terrible fate befell your beloved hero. The more horrible these continue screens were, the more likely you were to pay up, which is why some of these just have to be seen to be believed.

The original Crew 2 game had some pretty exotic cars, but The Crew 2 adds boats, stunt planes and all manner of weird and wonderful machinery to drive. Just consider these seven exotic vehicles you won't believe you can drive in The Crew 2.
We've all had to overcome challenges in games, be they tough bosses or tricky puzzles, but the hardest hurdles to overcome are the moments where you have to do something you hate in order to proceed. Consider these times we were left with only two options, do the horrible thing or eject the game disc and throw it in the bin, and we seriously contemplated doing the latter.
When you play the latest game in a popular series, it's hard to imagine previous instalments were ever less than this immersive, technically impressive, and beautiful to look at. Unless it's Duke Nukem Forever.
