7 Awesome Abilities That Were More Trouble Than They Were Worth

Sometimes in videogames you will often find yourself in possession of a weapon or ability that seems great at first, only to discover that when you use it, it's more trouble than it's worth. Here are just some of the times we’ve encountered that very thing. Enjoy, and subscribe for a video like this every Thursday, why not?

Take air support in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, for example.

Call in air support on your iDroid and your helicopter pilot Pequod storms in, playing his music at full volume and starts strafing everything in sight with miniguns, which alerts everyone to your presence, causes a load of mayhem, and stops you being able to score a perfect S rank on the mission.

He then usually gets shot down, costing you a bunch of money. Cheers Pequod.

    I'm amazed the Armageddon spell even works. You can't exactly test that sort of power out to make sure it's functioning correctly....I mean, you can, but then there's not much point writing down the spell anywhere.

  • Rugged Lemmings

    The thing that you seem to be forgetting about becoming a Vampire Lord in Dawnguard (other than the fact that no, people don't immediately attack you at Stage 4) is that...well...your character is now a vampire and probably should start behaving like one. Night becomes your new day (until you complete the main quest and can just give the sun a black eye any time you want). Seriously though, if you need to feed you're not just going to go into a house with 2/3 people awake and in the same room as the person you're going to bite...vampires are sneakier than that. There's also plenty of ways to compensate for your weakness to fire (be they racial traits or just getting fire resistance enchantments). Another thing to note is that unless town guards or civilians actually SEE you turn into a Lord, you'll loose all of your bounty for whatever you did in the Vampire Lord form once you get away and change back to normal (since the guards/civilians had no way to know who that Vampire Lord actually was) much like how you can put on the Grey Fox's Cowl in Oblivion, do whatever you want, then lose all of your bounty once you take it off.On top of all of this, the Vampire Lord form makes for a great "Oh shit!" button if you find yourself losing on a fight (assuming you're not outside in the day and haven't shot out the sun). The AoE Drain Health does a crap ton of damage while healing you for a ridiculous amount...really that's all you need, everything else - like the Gargoyles that absolutely murder everything - is just icing on the cake.You can say you just don't like the vampire playstyle (being forced into 3rd person every time you change forms and having trouble with doors are definitely two of the very valid complaints that come with being a vampire), but "more trouble than it's worth"? I'd say not, you just have to actually enjoy playing the game as though you were playing a vampire, and thus play as though your character were a vampire...because they are....................all that said, I still have way more fun as a modded werewolf that has a random chance of spontaneously changing at sun-down and being forced to stay in ww form the entire night. :^)

  • HCHS63rdWilsonZombie

    You don't know how to play a Vampire Lord properly lmao

  • Nate Andersen

    “No puns intended” intend your puns, coward!

  • Noblesse Obligee

    Why isn't "becoming an adult" on this list? It's literally the worst ability you can get, not worth the horrendous exp-grind needed to unlock, and the few perks you DO get are outweighed by the debuffs, class "choice" system, progressive nurf to your skilltrees, and required Tax Event that the game forces you to participate in every year. I'd rather take a zerg rush. Not to mention having to fight the Puberty Boss is one hell of level-gate that no one is every prepared for. At least there's no micro-transactions.... EA.....

  • Kozv

    >Complaining that vampirism is a tradeoffspoiler alert: its a curse

  • When Will I Get A Rework?

    I've got a Fallout 4 mod that replaces nuke impact sounds with "THAT'S A LOTTA DAMAGE"

  • Inell Lumba

    Vampirism sucks but Lycanthropy is pretty worth it in skyrim. I mean your soul belongs to hircine but like the worst you'll get from people is them asking if you've been tending to your hounds because you smell like a wet dog. But then again my soul also Belongs to like every daedric prince I've come across

  • Iamjam 195

    Surely having a cape is the BEST thing about being a vampire

  • OD Smith

    At the risk of quibbling, technically the cost of Mike installing the orbital laser and unleashing it on that one griefer was still significantly less than what Andy dropped on that nightclub...

  • Mp3 Dalsten

    LOL, why was the heli near ANTI-AIR GUNS? Of course they're made out of paper, the bullets on those things rip it to shreds. It's not a tank and the heli doesn't look upgraded at all.

  • Nick Currie

    The Experimental MIRV is the greatest nonsense weapon I've ever heard of. I want 12.

  • QorinHalfhand.

    Firstly,vampires ARE supposed to be hideous,they are the risen dead after all.Secondly have you heard about the necromage perk and how op its is if you are a vampire?

  • TJ Frye

    "Vampires r supposed to b sexy" then references twilight as a point of reference... It's pretty clear tht the things in twilight r not vampires. Nosferatu was a vampire, draculas a vampire. Those things in the twilight series? Glittering fairies

  • ASlimySlugIsInvadingYourBase

    I'd say that becoming a Vampire was worse in Oblivion.

  • KorilD

    I was mostly disappointed that being a vampire lord didn't come with a badass cape, and that I couldn't even STEAL Harkon's after he was dead. Plus there's only one vampire mode model for the player, regardless of gender or species, which SUCKS.

  • Variousnumber

    Annoying Radio DJ Three Dog. Hmm. I'm sorry Jane, but that doesn't add up. I'm sure you meant "Fantastic, lovely DJ, whose only being used here as he is a very recognisable character, and we couldn't be bothered to put up with Colonel Autumn." No need to thank me for the correction, we all knew what you were really thinking.

  • Justin Last

    8:14 "Fallout 3 is a sequel to a game called Fallout 2 because that's how numbers work"Then why the hell is Fallout 4 not called Fallout 5? Why is Fallout 76 called Fallout 76? THESE NUMBERS MAKE NO SENSE.

  • Dravonion

    I was kinda crap at MGS5 so I ended up abusing the shit outta peaquad and tbh I really liked it when flight of the valkyries played and a swarm of missiles and a hail of bullets was sent towards and pesky commies and walker mechs

  • NR T

    Andy: "Because that is how numbers work"Me: *Eyes Fallout 76 suspiciously

  • Arcturus Azathoth

    The "excellent" Fallout 3. Yeah okay then.

  • Team CLB

    The Master Cycle Zero from Breath of The Wild

  • originalShorai

    To be honest by the time you've bought the Doomsday bunker in GTA online it's likely that you are already rolling in now unusable in game currency so it's not as big a deal as they try to describe it here. Honestly hearing the topic of this video the first thing I thought of was the GTA Online mechanic vehicle delivery. It almost never works and the longer you're online the more you pay an NPC to be terrible at their job

  • WhizzGameplay

    No magic armour from Zelda Twilight Princess? The thing literally drains your money from your wallet to make itself work, and as soon as you run out of Rupees, you become unbelievably slow.

  • Marquise Pixley

    People don't attack you on site wind you are on sage 4 vampireism if you have the dawnguard dlc

  • TheSmokingHand92

    Becoming a vampire on Morrowind was worse than oblivion and skyrim put together. Also, the boots of blinding speed in Morrowind which you mentioned are useless by themselves, But accompanied with the Saviors hide chest piece found in Tel Fyr which dispells 100% Makes them completely useable and s great way to travel at great speeds.

  • Joseph Stramiello

    So the Armageddon spell is basically the Thanos click.

  • Fred Blues

    Of the 804 dislikes, how many were 3Dog fans?

  • Sudipta Sarker

    In comparison being a werewolf is fun without all those side effects and you get to be a freaking werewolf who eats hearts for health

  • Malcolm Darke

    On a slightly less theoretically overpowered note, you'd think that the spell Stun from Might and Magic 6 would be at least marginally useful, given that it forces the target to go through its recovery before it can do anything again. It's also cheap, and available very early on.The problem comes when you realise that monsters have different recovery mechanics to the player-controlled party. They seem to operate on a fixed-time recovery, and the spell Stun doesn't actually trigger that. So it seems to exist purely to allow monsters to cast it on the party... except that there is literally no monster in the entire game which can cast Stun.

  • Henrique Maximo

    Oh Serana... I'll never forget when you reanimated that hard-to-find Bosmer before I could sample his blood...

  • TheWerewolfofsalem

    2 Bethesda games on one list?Who’d have guessed?

  • Gruntman1234

    Players Who Became Vampire Lords: "Ha, enjoy your crossbow losers." /Gets stuck in a door way.Me: /Puts a crossbow bolt between Vampire Lord's eyes. "Thanks, I will."

  • Marcus Hough

    Being an adult is my addition to this list. I can set my own bed times sure, but I'm always super tired

  • Sorcikator Senpai

    The MIRV. The main use being, making a dump save and nuking everything inside of Megaton. You know you did it, we all did

  • When Will I Get A Rework?

    Vampiric powers in Skyrim seriously sucked

  • zygas25

    About the stage 4 vamp thing. The world kills you only if u have just rye base game. If dawnguard is installed then it removes that issue though if u turn into a lord infront of people or feed in public then that will happen.

  • Throttle Kitty

    So that's how GTA Online made 6 billion dollars. They invented the "pay $10 to slap someone through the internet" button.

  • Marquise Pixley

    I like being a vampire lord

  • Bam5000000

    What's with the professor Snape in Drag on the thumbnail?

  • f4C3pWnRx45

    Flak and Shrapnel in Rivet City in Fallout sell mini nukes. They only have a couple at a time at most, but their inventory resets every few days.

  • The Dapper Snake

    This needs to be updated the vampire lord is op now with the lowering of the fire weakness and you no longer need to feed

  • Thimo Mons

    I don't know whether you could call it an "ability", but forming a covenant with the End of the Cycle in Stellaris is definitely not worth the trouble. It gives you enormous buffs for 50 years, but after that your empire gets destroyed, you only get left with one planet and where your empire used to be is now a bunch of angry murder clouds, one of which will go around the galaxy killing everything and leaving you for last. Oh yeah, all other empires also know it is your fault the universe is doomed so everyone hates you, which translates into most empires declaring war on you. And the buffs? yeah, those get get removed after those 50 years.

  • Sain 7417

    Is it me or did Andy's beard get a whole lot more kratos-esque?

  • that-one-guy from-that-one-movie

    Shoulda put the Tornado sprint from Saints row 4.. I still regret it.

  • GolanLP

    The reward for Oblivions Shiverring Isles DLC was also sort of a letdown. You defeat Jyggalag, save the Isles, become the Prince of Madness himself, and what are your cool new powers? You can change the weather (on the isles only) and get a staff that lets you freeze all enemies in time, wich you cannot attack while they are under this effect. The Clothes look neat though, if you don't need any protection from physical attacks, that is.

  • Justin Vance

    Pquad works great just don't expect it to come in a do your job for you. It's more of a distraction like most of your tools need to get somewhere and too many guards. Call the chopper to a spot a bit away they run to fight it and you can strut in.

  • PokemonButcher

    0:05 ...Or the game associated with the shirt you are wearing :(

  • Rikusgirl001

    That's why I mod Skyrim to reverse the vampire mechanics. I mean, how much sense does it make to starve yourself to get more powerful? Shouldn't it be the other way around where the more blood you drink the more powerful you get?

  • Do;jk sesdfjibjs figduhv bfd bj dgsiub ndfunijfol

    “A drunk monk, if you will.”A dronk

  • Zack Stewart

    Meteor in Final Fantasy IV is what happens when you give an angry old man the most powerful spell in the game. You use it against Golbez and it doesn't kill him but kills the old man. oops.

  • Gideon Messer

    Did you know you can become a double vampire in Skyrim because if you become a vampire somewhat before becoming a vampire Lord it doesn't count as the same vampirism and it say vampire vampire Lord and vampire and in my experience it gives you two sets of fangs

  • Terminator356

    When I played a vampire in Skyrim I never had a problem with people attacking me at stage 4. I never drank blood the whole time I was playing. And for those of who will ask, at the time I was playing on Xbox 360. So no mods.

  • Ricky Smooth

    "Sometimes things that look great turn out to be a massive dissapointment." I can't believe he said that while wearing a Mass Effect Andromeda shirt.

  • Native2087

    R. Mika's V-skill...totally worth it lol

  • David Drouant

    I love being a vampire,you just have to be careful who,and when to feed.I know my pic is of a werewolf,but they kinda suck.I would like a werewolf power overhaul mod.

  • lynnthegreat10

    Why tf would you kill 3 Dog?!?! shoot it at Todd Howard, not 3 Dog.

  • supergluehotty

    Many terratia console weapons. Mostly mage and yoyos they were made for mouse not controller.

  • Andy Mcp

    Reminds me of the magic armour from Twilight Princess.. You'll never take damage in battle!"Yes please!"It will constanty drain your money and stops working when you run out!"wait wha?"

  • Nick

    For weapons, the Last Wish comes to kind from Destiny 2.

  • EveesCastle

    Can we talk about mojimbo from final Fantasy X? Not only do you have to spend a ton of gil to get him to even join you but you must constantly have a ton of gil for him to be worth it. You literally have to pay him to help you.

  • Chris Mancini

    Not to go crazy into Skyrim builds or anything, but anyone who knows anything about Skyrim will instantly recognize Necromage. Makes Vampires better to say the least.

  • Kassem Shibbo

    Mike wasting 3 quarters of a million dollars to shoot a prick who bothered Andy is my all time favorite Bromance moment! <3

  • Jade "Pencil" Wizard

    I mean with the Armageddon spell you technically win the game.

  • BeeseChops

    12:00 okay so basically, I’m monky

  • diamondtron01

    72 Mini Nukes in the game? I beg to differ milady. In every playthru, I buy my nuclear pile (phrasing) from Rivet City.

  • 11DNA11

    750k in GTA Online is chump change...Got like 600m in it :P

  • NGMonocrom

    $10 of real money to obliterate any obnoxious piece of human crap in the game?..... Soooo totally worth it!!!!!!

  • Weekender Girl

    The orbital cannon is basically the Mike approach. Make everything explode!

  • Daniel Staples

    I didn't know there was a game before fallout 3, so what now your going to say there was a game before that?
