I'm sure this topic has been made at some point but I was just going through Diablo 3 on Hell and reached the aquaducts. Unfortunately I didn't have the option to leave Covetous Shen in that barrel. I have to say he is one of the most annoying characters I have ever come across in a videogame. I find his voice to be grating and he seriously does not shut the fuck up. My fellow giantbomb users I ask you, what videogame characters have annoyed you to hell and back? If this topic has come up recently I apologize.

Hope from Final Fantasy XIII. I fucking could not stand him, oh the fucking rage.

Otis from Dead Rising. "Don't hang up on me! It's rude!" Well, pardon me, janitor man, but I had to make a dire decision between continuing to speak with you and NOT HAVING MY FUCKING FACE CHOMPED OFF BY A GODDAMN ZOMBIE. But please, tell me what was so important that I simply couldn't interrupt our conversation.

Zeke in the first Infamous, annoying all throughout the game. Followed closely by Roman from GTA IV. Dude, I never at any point want to go bowling.

Simmer down there, chuckles. Hope wasn't that bad. And he actually matured over the course of the game.

Now, Prince Tricky, on the other hand. Gaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

I don't know if it was his childness or the fact that he would always die, to the point I gave up and never finished the game.

I think Covetous Shen is a great character. There were a lot of characters in Skyrim I didn't like, such as Delphine.

This thread has only one clear winner.

The Duck Hunt Dog, obviously. Have you all forgotten the indescribable rage?

I can see what you mean. I wish they gave him more dialogue because it really does get repetitive after a while. My templar is at level 41 now so i'm sort of used to having him around. Maybe I will swtich out for a different one on the next act though.

Hope made an already terrible game 100% worse by crying at every goddamn juncture we got to. GROW UP OR DIE ALREADY.

Fi from Skyward Sword. Seriously, if people are still making Navi jokes, then they obviously haven't played Skyward Sword. She points out the obvious, and won't stop bothering you about your low hearts and batteries...

Tingle, it's got to be Tingle, or any of the myriad of crappy characters they added to the Sonic Series back in the early 2000s...

Plus Fi serves no goddamn purpose to the plot. All I remember of her was that when she gave advice, she'd dance around for no reason. Oh, and her idea of lyrical beauty was "I MUST MAKE A FACE LIKE SOMEBODY IS SHOVING A FELINE UP MY RECTUM".

@laserbolts: Not really, I was being facetious. :D:D:D

I honestly can't think of a video game character that I've ever found annoying, or at least annoying out of context.

#32 Edited by NTM (7280 posts) -

Probably just because of his voice, but I really thought Hargreave in Crysis 2 was severely annoying in spots. He's a minor character compared to most others could probably come up with, but still, damn. Oh, and for those that said Hope, I would have to agree if you consider the first 15 or so hours of the game, 'cause later he grows on you, or he at least becomes far less annoying.

#33 Posted by Icicle7x3 (1174 posts) -

Cedric from King's Quest V.

#34 Edited by verticalstripes (33 posts) -

Most JRPG characters annoy the hell out of me.  I get sick of all their melodrama and guessing whether which characters are guys and which are girls.
Edit: That came off as kind of trollish, but I really can't stand the genre in general, even though I know not all games are as I described.

Jar Jar Binks he was in a game wasn't he so yeah.

The guy who blocked one of the paths at the start of Ocarina of Time. Everything about him made me want to stab him in the face.

I don't know what the hell bishie means but if his name is actually Lord Science then that's awesome.

I'm gonna go with Tingle. The worst.

spoilers obviously, but

he basically starts something in one time period, travels forward in time to when it's finished or whatever; he does that 4 times, and he's the leader of the government, which is called the academy, each time he does so.

so yes basically lord science

#43 Posted by MocBucket62 (1159 posts) -

For me its Rouge the Bat. It always annoyed me that some dumbass at Snice Team thought it was a good idea to add a bat whore to the "kid friendly" cast for the Sonic Series. Its either her or the narrator from Motion Sports.

Close Thread, nothing can beat Otis in my mind, can't believe I actually did a playthrough of listening to all his boring ass calls without getting interrupted

#48 Posted by Zleunamme (652 posts) -

The only reason I put up with Hope is because he is the best healer in the party. The one FFXIII character I found annoying is Snow. Do NPCs count for being the most annoying? The ones in the first Assassins Creed, the crazies and the drunkards. Altair is in prayer as part of his disguise. Then those assholes will only shove you, blowing your cover. Then you are forced to fight a wave of Templar soldiers until you have killed them all or ran away. The game will take a small life bar away for killing those NPCs.
