What is the most annoying level that you have ever encountered in a video game? That is the question of this topic.

Gradius III (arcade), cube rush. This is objectively the most annoying stage ever, and anything else is included as a formality.

Shikigami no Shiro II, stage three. God[darn]ed walls.

If this was a bigger forum, someone would probably say Meat Circus.

Every level in MapleStory. HEYOOOOOOOO

As a kid I would have probably picked one from SMBj/LL, but I can't recall what level it was now.  Most recently NSMB 9-7 was annoying, but having the monkey having you jump/bounce on stuff was most annoying.  As for non-Mario games, I'll have to think about it and get back to you.

I'll agree that NSMBW 9-7 was awful.

I'm not sure what else...  Perhaps the final three or so chapters of Uncharted 2, which contain the hardest gunfights in the game.  Any given gimmick/vehicle level in Crash Bandicoot: Warped (except the N. Gin boss fight, which was awesome).

Yeah, in Uncharted 2, I remember that one part where you're in the entryway to the temple area, picking off guys with a Dragon Sniper in a bunch of different towers, was a major pain. And yes, the Meat Circus did hand my ass to me, although I'm not sure why this would need to be a bigger forum for someone to say that.

Because most of the people on this forum have never played Psychonauts.

While not a level per se, Jabu-Jabu's Belly from LoZ:OoT provided me with four hours of hell.

The mall meetup in Mirror's Edge was quite annoying. On the escape, getting to the platform at the top without getting cut to shreds was crazy hard. The Sonic Adventure 2 Rouge level with he vaults was also annoying.

I was also very bothered by Jabu Jabu, for some reason. I suspect that even as an adult I would curse the eyes of the Water Temple's architect.

In Metal Gear Solid 3, Groznyj Grad on European Extreme is a huge pain in the ass.

I am still stuck on that part where you go through a rising door, go up onto a catwalk, and take out some guards.

Oh, just remembered: That part on the way to Nova Prospect in Half-Life 2, where you have the Ant Lions and are in shoot-out with those giant ships? Yeah, could someone please help me out there? That part alone is preventing me from ever wanting to play that game again.

Jabu Jabu's Belly and the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time are nothing compared to Jabu Jabu's Belly in Oracle of Ages. That said, Jabu Jabu's Belly and the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time are actually cakewalks.
The Mario series is the best! It has every genre in video games but RTS'! It also has a plumber who does different roles, a princess, and a lot of odd creatures who don't seem to poop!

What is it with NSMB9-7?  That level wasn't really all that bad.  That last Star Coin in 9-4, however, was horrendously annoying to get.  As for me, some particular memories are SMB2j/TLL's C-4, SMW's Tubular, SMG2's second crate-burning objective, and the final boss from Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure.

I guess because I played Trilogy edition and had access to such luxuries as the Spring Ball and reasonable damage output levels on its part, Spider Guardian never posed a threat to me.  Boosty was still murder, though.
