    I've been playing Mass Effect 2's Lair of the Shadow Broker over the weekend and had forgotten how much of a chore planet scanning was. Even patched, it's slow, clunky and tedious. There must be worse out there than it, so remind me EGers!

    What is your most hated minigame?

    Anything that's a slide puzzle. I can't do, and I hate, slide puzzles.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Hacking in Puzzle Quest Galactrix. In that you have to do it again and again and again until you want to let the bullet take the pain away.

    I second the pipe bollocks. It pissed me off so much I actually gave up on the entire game.

    I might also say forklift racing in Shenmue, but it was so bizarre and random that it was awesome in its own way.

    The hacking mini game to enable you to control turrets and whatnot. Very, very tedious.

    Oh. /facepalm

    Yeah, it was complete bullshit when some puzzles were literally *impossible* to complete. Didn't make me give up, though.

    I liked Bioshock's pipe minigame. Towards the end it was a bit trial and error-y but I enjoyed it overall. And slide puzzles are a thinking man's minigame :D

    Hacking in New Vegas sucks arse. There seem to be way more words than in FO3, and less bracket code things. With only 4 tries, it really comes down to guessing a lot of the time. Three guesses, log out, log in, guess again, etc.

    Not the worst ever, though.

    Which was the one where you had to roll a ball around to complete circuits?

    I like Blitzball and the Bioshock pipe bollocks!

    I'll +1 the ME2 scanning though, it's just so boring.

    Does The Force Unleashed's Star Destroyer count ?

    Not only is it rubbish, but it's glitched to hell as well.

    Yeah that was really tough going - I didn't mind trying it though, I was just far too unco-ordinated ;)
