5 Good Games That Everyone Assumed Would Be Terrible

We all do it: we see a game that’s by a company with a bad reputation, or that’s a sequel to something we didn’t like, and we assume it’s a piece of garbage. We mock it or ignore it, and never actually play it. Sometimes this is justified, but sometimes these assumptions cause us to miss out on a game that is actually genuinely good.

Ah Deadly Premonition, a game so bad in many ways that it ends up being great :D

It's funny, but not a good "game". A good game has good gamePLAY.

I tend to agree with you there, silent; it's like going to the movies and coming out raving about the popcorn.

Calvin_ISA1465d ago

I disagree. Values are values. It's an experience. You don't go to the movies and come out raving about the popcorn, but popcorn is PART of watching a movie. There's plenty of movies so bad they're good, but it doesn't take away their "movie" status. We've all seen the horror movies that end up being hilarious, it doesn't make them less horror, it just means the hilarity is the quality that made you enjoy the movie. I still have yet to buy Red Seeds Profile, but it's on my list because I think it'll be a fun GAME. :)

@Calvin

But there's a major difference between watching a "so bad" film and PLAYING through lengthy sequences with clunky controls. It's a one note comedy to have poor controls, and when they last several hours...you have a bad GAME.

The gap between poor quality horror that makes you laugh and 'intentionally' clunky game controls and crappy gameplay is MAAAAAAAAAASSIVE.

The Room is a perfect example of terrible but good movie.

I've yet to play Deadly Premonition. I tend to be a fan of films that are so bad they are good, so I may have to pick up a cheap copy just to see for myself.

I've watched a couple of gameplay vids and it does seem a bit nutty, but in a good way.

What ever happened to the directors cut that was announced for the PS3 for the West? Was expecting it to show up at E3... hopefully Gamescom.

DarkBlood1465d ago

you mean the enhanced edition coming to ps3 and 360 with updated controls and graphic touchup im guessing?

yeah i wonder that too

sinncross1465d ago

I am pretty sure it was only announced for PS3. Cant find any info on a 360 version of it though... either way, they must show it off now.

TheMutator1465d ago

damn i love Deadly Premonition!!!

SlapHappyJesus1465d ago

In a way, it's the Shenmue 3 that we will probably, sadly, never get.

All has to do with that specific sense of style that oozes throughout the entire game.

York, by the way, is a boss.
