We all know the pain and frustration of running through a level over and over again only to die to the same damn enemies. It’s the kind of thing that will drive even the most even-tempered person into a white knuckle rage.
There’s a fine line between difficulty and irritation, and the enemies on this list manage to cross it. Sometimes they have an unpredictable (or unfair) attack pattern. Other times they just have a stupid face. Regardless of the reason they irritate us, these are 10 of the most annoying enemies in gaming, the foes we love to hate.
Murlocs (World of Warcraft)
Which employee at Blizzard is responsible for the murloc noise? Because the unholy gurgling sound that these fishmen make can’t be erased from your memory. The murlocs might not be the toughest enemies in Azeroth, but they sure as hell make their presence known wherever they go. Between the sounds they make and their cold, dumb fish eyes, murlocs are essentially the Jar Jar Binks of the Warcraft universe. They’ve become mascots for Blizzard’s MMO, which has only given the developers license to use that dreadful gurgling noise even more. They may not pose any real threat, but murlocs safely secure their place as one of the most annoying video game enemies just by opening their mouths.
