Gameplay-wise: Specter. He flees twice in Ape Escape (although I've only played the remake for the PSP), which drives me up the fucking wall. Personality-wise: Higashizawa from The World Ends with You. I came to play a RPG, not Cooking Mama.
Sonic. Eggman/Robotnik flies around the place giving all the creatures jet packs and handy tools for FREE so that they can communicate with each other and join society with the rest of us humans. Then Sonic sabotages the lot of it, breaking down years of hard progressive work and chasing the poor scientist for TWENTY YEARS.
The Nightmare demon blob thing from Devil May Cry Oh.My.God. This has to be one of the most annoying-est in all of DMC. You had to keep these lights so you could attack its core-thingy while it shoots at you with these needle-like things...
Trying to recall the last time a game villain really pissed me off for story reasons instead of gameplay reasons. As in being a real bastard you come to despise, not merely a boss that's a pain in the ass to fight.
The Strogg did a good job of that as far back as Quake 2 I think, the prison level comes to mind readily. Caesar's Legion from Fallout: New Vegas is a more recent example that comes to mind. Granted these are both groups, not many individual Legionnaires really seemed twisted enough on their own to get me riled up, though Vulpes Inculta comes close. Granted, seeing him wearing that foxhat takes away a lot of the menace.
GladOS is a pretty mean contender, but I actually love her for many reasons... SHODAN didn't have that charm that GladOS had. All what is left is a batshit-crazy, omniscient and conscious AI that is belittleling and laughing at you, while using you like a toy or test-rat in her giant playmaze that was the space-station. And holy, that game was scary. Aribeth from NWN could be listed here too, but her story was just so tragicly folded against her that I could do nothing but feel for her... even while my freezing broadsword was sticking out of her back...
Didact from Halo 4. Most cliche video game villain I've played. Vomits out the worst cliche speeches I've ever sat through in a video game. Also, Didact boss fight at end... is one long cutscene with a quick time event thrown in. So, Halo has come to this? Facepalm.
Lily in the Walking Dead. Not technically a villain... but after Episode 3, I was ready to put a bullet in her head. Carley didn't deserve an early grave just because Lily couldn't keep her cool as a leader.
GLaDOS was one cold bitch. She's lording it over you while she's plugged into the mainframe, but as soon as she turns into a potato she's being all buddy-buddy with you, just so she can be back in charge again. And at the end she chucks you out of the Enrichment Centre and into a fucking wheat field. She could at least give you a map or something.
Dark demon, from Demonīs Crest. Geez! that thing is sooo hard... I need all my fingers in the control to dodge and attack at the same time. And for the love of....... Is it too much to ask that Firebrand may be able of crouch?!
Borderlands' humor in general is either something people love or hate (and a small few who just say "meh"). I have to say that while Jack doesn't totally irritate me, Gearbox's humor writing is lax, imo. It's like they were trying to be a hillbilly space western version of RvB, but without the pacing or natural dialogue.
Demyx, from Kingdom Hearts II. The game pegged him as a "lousy fighter", and he acts like he's horrible at fighting, then you proceed to have your ass handed to you on a silver platter over and over again.
