What are some of the worst games of this year?

Posted 09 December 2013 - 01:45 PM

Did anyone try Simcity? That thing just PISSED ME OFF. What it was god-awful, I loved the previous games but this one was just a trainwreck...Did anyone see how bad it was at launch with the terrible servers and lag? Man-o-man...

I'm totally online for a online multiplayer, sure why not, but on top of the DRM thing and all the rest of a mess that this game was I can't believe they did this to the fans. Aren't there beta testers around anymore?

Either way I pretty much agree with this list:

...even though I haven't played all the games.

kind of hard for a person to get a non-biased topic on this question. I'm very biased, the worst games in my opinion are any FPS, and shooters in general. I'm more into RPGs, puzzle, and adventure games.

Very... eloquent.

I haven't been to disappointed; though, that's probably because I don't game near as much as I once did. When I do nowadays, it's usually picking up an old game or killing time on my gameboy.

Well, perhaps my post seems a bit more angry than I actually was. Basically, you end up spending $80 on a game you can't even play. It's compltely broken.

I actually quite enjoyed that game. Granted I didn't pick up a copy at release so wasn't caught up in all the server problems. It does have its issues (map size is my main issue), but nothing that I couldn't easily work around in some way and still enjoy it.

See, I find questions like this difficult to address properly. How does one rate the worst game? What qualifies a game for the running? I would say the majority of games on the "Newest" list for Kongregate are pretty shit. Do we limit it to AAA titles? I don't think I've played one that was released this year.

Oh wait, I know.

Defiance.

Had huge potential, but utterly failed to deliver. For the hype and possibility that it failed to live up to, for the companion TV show that completely failed to be engaging, and the utter crapcake that the game was - is imo the worst game released this year. I don't have any special hate for it, just disappointment that I wasted money on it.

Definitely the whole World War Z thing. That whole debacle was a hilarious event.

I still Like War Steel: Tyrant. But you are right they got some crappy games over at Kongregate . Worst I have played in awhile had to be Dust.[Of Course since it was released online I will check back in a couple of months and see if it was upgraded.

How many fucking video game threads do we need going at one time?

"What game are you looking forward to?"
"What game didn't you like?"
"What game are you playing right now?"

Seriously, people. Turn off the computers. Go outside. The sun only hurts for a minute, then your eyes will adjust.
