Me and friend were talking about crappy (and not so crappy) hacking mini-games in games; he was replaying Mass Effect 2 hating the hacking game in it. I was trying to think about the worst one for me, I remember the mini-game but can't remember the game it was in.

The best I can do to describe it is frogger, but you move horizontally (instead of vertically), but inside a computer space. You moved a power node (frog) horizontally across the screen and had to time it so you didn't hit obstacles (cars) that were moving vertically.

Any idea what game this is from?

I don't. But now I want to discuss the best hacking mini-games.

@StHapns247: Definitely sounds like one of the Assassin's Creed Black Flag's hacking minigames. Fallout 3/New Vegas was probably my least favorite hacking minigame.

@xanatos357: Thanks man, that's totally it! I don't usually associates Assassin's Creed with hacking, so I would have never figured it out.

@elheber: I would propose that Assassin's Creed 4's hacking mini-game is NOT the best hacking mini-game.

Deus Ex : Human Revolution had the best hacking mini-game, I hacked everything I could in there. It's one of the things I'm really psyched about in Mankind Divided.

Don't know if you can count the matrix sections of Shadowrun return as hacking but that's as close to moving in a virtual-virtual space as we get iirc.
