Impossible Games, so annoying (Zelda: Spirit Tracks)
A game is only fun as long as it's not impossible.

I still haven't beaten The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. I can't get past the sand sanctuary music piece. I've even found a video walk-through that succeeds without a problem, yet still no luck. I've probably practiced and tried 50 to 100 times and still I can't get it. I think the guy gives up on me when practicing, and the only thing he says when I fail is not to improvise. Excuse me? I'm ready to rip my hair out or find an incinerator for the game. Argh.

*goes to try again*

There's a music piece in this game? That SUCKS. Is it completely reliant on hearing the music?

There's one like that in one of the Temple Of Ages(or Seasons?) games - where you have to listen to the music and do a Goron dance - and neither me nor my brother can actually do this, because we're both totally deaf, so we have never gotten past it. The dance routine in the sister game is follow-my-leader, so that is achievable, but the Goron one - WAHHH. So non-inclusive.

There are musical notations on the screen which are color (and position) coded to the instrument. For most of them you can make a passable attempt at just playing fairly quickly and that seems to work for the most part. For this one either I'm not going fast enough (plausible) or there is a secret to skipping one of the notes (at the end it goes B C A, or something like that).

No amount of listening or mimicking of the tutorial video has managed to get me past the last one. I've pretty much given up on it now. :-(
