As the title said, what really pissed you off as a kid about the Sonic games? What was so challenging that at the time (or even to this day) that made these things seemed impossible? I have a few.

Sonic 2 was my first game, as such this one had a number of offenders. Chemical Plant had the rising water elevator sequence in Act 2 that made me go mad. All of Metropolis zone was a bitch, I died constantly. Those seahorses in Oil Ocean... those fucking seahorses. There's one section in Casino Night zone that always screwed me up, it was a U shaped area with an exit on the left with a bunch of bumpers that led you to another U shaped area with more bumpers. Also it took me 9 years to finally beat the Death Egg Zone and I did it as Tails.

Sonic 1 has a number of offenders. All of Labyrinth zone, even to this day, makes me want to rage, as well as Special Stage 3 (I always fear of dying in that level).

Sonic 3... the barrel. That's about it though. Saving made the threats less threatening

In Sonic Adventure it took me forever to beat Hot Shelter as Big since I didn't know where Froggy was. At the same time I didn't know how to beat the Egg Viper, or at least I remember not beating Sonic's story for a while.

In Sonic Adventure 2 I didn't realize you needed to freeze time to go through the water fall in the last level as rouge. My sister actually figured that one out for me.

I mostly raged at my mistakes and sometimes at Tails, metropolis was pain in the arse too for me, mostly me being impatient and tried to rush. Big missions made me pissed off too. I know im not kid right now but lately I did SADX missions and mission 53 pissed me off SO MUCH!

E: Ah yes, the barrel. Everytime I replayed Sonic 3, that part gave me always fear and lots of Time Overs. My MD games were pirated so I had no manuals to look how it was done. Same was with special stages. I had no idea that you could do them into rings and on the 4th ST, the stage went very slow and it pissed me off cause I had to wait so long after every blue sphere. (In the large blue sphere area)

I've actually never had a problem with Sonic games as a kid, or games in general for that matter. With two exceptions; MiB for the Playstation and Super Mario 64. I could never figure out the latter's star clues, and the former had a second level that stumped me silly.

While unrelated to the topic, that Blast the Wall Away mission in Thwomp's Fortress confused the hell out of me forever.

I sucked at Labyrinth's Zone boss run, so I died there always and several times. Another thing that infuriated me was the sub-boss from Death Egg Zone. Ugh. Thankfully super handled the job well. :colbert: I appreciate challenge when it's well done, so Scrap Brain and Metropolis are okay in my book. However, the seahorse badnik. God damn it, every single one of them.

Sonic 2 still annoys me in general. I dislike most of the zones, though two of my favourites are in it. When I was a child I had no patience for the game and often rage quit when I died. Especially around Aquatic Ruin or Hill Top. These two got on my nerves a lot. Marble Garden was boring but I didn't mind playing through it like these two.

Sonic 2 was also my first game, and I always had trouble with CPZ's rising water section. Metropolis also gave me a lot of issues too though. I also remember getting stuck in the pit as Super Sonic in Mystic Cave Zone (and hopelessly mashing A in frustration), thinking I could just blaze through the level recklessly. It was my last life too.

In Sonic 1 I always had trouble with Labyrinth and Marble.

As for Sonic 3, The Barrel took me about an hour to figure out. However, what did make me rage was the Marble Garden Boss as Tails. Then there's the Big Arms boss, who again, I thought I could just easily blaze through as Super Sonic. I lost all of my lives on that one boss.

Also, am I the only one as a kid who spent a while hitting the Sandopolis mid-boss wondering how many hits it would take?

Am I the only one who enjoys Oil Ocean? Even as a kid I don't remember it being much of a pain.
As a kid I could never do the special stages though, apart from blue sphere and the ones in 3D Blast. At the time I thought super sonic first appeared in Sonic 3
EDIT: Also that barrel.

Sonic Heroes' 7th Special Stage for Team Sonic.

Seriously. It's a goddamn nightmare even to this day.

Actually, Sonic Rush's 7th Special Stage was a pain in the ass too.

Of course the barrel in Carnival Night Act 2 made me rage, but the final boss in Sonic 2 still makes me rage to this day. >.< I can beat him, it's just really difficult. :v: And another thing that made me rage as a kid was Chemical Plant Act 2, the part of the level where the water rises. Took me a few years to finally beat the level. :\

Just the entirety of Sonic 3 for feeling totally unfinished. I don't personally see the lock-on cartridge DLC as validating that.

I'm not sure how to elaborate on this, but Death Egg Zone in Sonic 2. How can you not rage as a kid when you have to fight two bosses without getting hit once. Just give me one ring, goddamn.

I've had a Game Gear and Sonic 2 for it ever since I was five years old. To this day I have not beaten this boss.

God I forgot about that thing. I hate that boss. That boss was not meant for such a small screen.
