Simple, what is your most annyoing moment on your Xbox 360?
When you almost came to the point of smashing the Xbox?
When the house echoed with curses and swearing?

Mine simply is: Mile High Club, the single most annoying gaming thing i have ever done.

Anytime a 360 dies on me is a bad moment.

Well since i've had my 360 for almost 2 years(Got it May 30, 2006) and it hasn't messed up yet, I would have to say when I can't sign on to Xbox Live, cause they're doing a maintenance or they have already done the maintenance and it will just sign you out for no reason...very annoying...

There have been 2:

Test Drive Unlimited: There's a challenge to transport someone a long distance across the map, and it gives you a lot of extra time, but if you drive badly, the person will bail on you and you fail. So for 8-10 minutes I drive this guy around perfectly, and see drop-off area with over a minute left. I don't want to risk it, so I drive like a perfect citizen and stop at a red, once my light turns green, I proceed across the intersection and get T-Boned by some random AI car, and I fail the mission! I sold the game the next minute.

Forza 2 - I'm running an endurance race, almost 45 minutes in, in first place by over 3 laps on Laguna Seca (about 5 minutes) and I missed the brake button (LT) and my car gets sent into a corner at a nice 100 mph. Now it barely works, and I have 3 laps to go. It takes me almost 3 minutes to get from the crash to "The Pit" and by the time I got out, I was 3rd and ended up getting 2nd by less than 2 seconds. I was pretty pissed!

Hehe, I didn't have a problem with Mile High Club, I did it in about 20 minutes.

Mine would be setting up Xbox Live, I didn't have the money for wireless, so I had to re-arrange my house to get it to work :).

My 3 RRoDs in under a 4 month timeframe. My console was doing fine for about 2 years, and suddenly it RRoDs. I send it in, the second one does the same in a week, the 3rd one was also crap. Now, I have one with the Falcon Board, hope all goes well...

My worst xbox moment was when I bought bully and played it for about 5 hours straight and then it froze on me. That was a great game but so buggy.

Hmmmm, my most annoying xbox moment....probably something like it crashing on Oblivion at some point. I forget to save, do about 4 hours and it crashes.

Probably when your game freezes right after defeating a very difficult boss or before saving your game, after hours of level grinding and crawling.

i just got my memorable moment last sunday.

i was running my 3rd playthru of fear, aiming the collectibles and the "no slow-mo" achies. i was closing last level and almost leaving, but i decided to check again the list to be sure i didnt miss anything, before it was too late.

then i absent mindledly grabbed back my pad...doing this i pressed LB by mistake, activating ths [@#*ing SLOW-MO...:eek: i immediately de-activeted it, but that single second, or less, costed me the achie. no use of restarting from the checkpoint, this game doesnt forgive you about it: its a shame, it could have been more tolerant, actually i didn USE slow-mo...:uzi:

anyway, im happily running my 4th playthru, tied my left finger to the elbow and glued the LB button just for precaution :Bounce:

Yeah The Mile High Club is def at the top of the DOUCHE list...

Id say my worst would be...Getting REALLY far in Mass Effect then the system over heats because I left the door shut to my entertainment center...SCARED THE CRAP OF ME..with the red lights and everything but when I opend the door and let it rest..It worked fine..I now keep it in the middle of my room haha

I was pretty pissed when I was working on gold medals in Portal and all my progress suddenly vanished. From 13/18 gold to 0/18 and advanced maps re-locked themselves as if I hadn't beat the game yet. I gave up after the 3rd time this happened...:mad:

I feel you - same thing happened to me twice. I then went and bought a memory card and backed up my save after every challenge. That way I was able to complete them.

So it's either that or Mile High Club, which almost caused the end of my relationship. When I finally did it, I went out with my gf and had champagne :woop:

Yeah, I tried using a memory unit, it didn't work. When I loaded the file from the MU I finished the map I went back to the menu and it was the same.:(

I would have to say when Xbox live disconnects during RSV1, RSV2, and COD4 clan matches, but Xbox live disconnecting in general is a nightmare.

Also last June i was hosting a Team deathmatch in Casino vault and this guy was glitching so i booted him and i received a Vision Cam image 5 minutes later of him lying on his bed giving me the finger holding a sign that said wreck pussy. I was like wtf, are you serious, you time to do that after you got kick, i was shocked and scared for my life, i thought the dude was going to molest me, lol.
