Top Five Bad Games That Are Worth Playing Anyway

It’s a pretty broad term, but there are plenty of things that can make a game ‘bad.’ But there are also plenty of things that can totally outweigh those errors and make a generally bad game still totally worth playing. So, here are the top five ‘bad’ games that are so good, they’re worth the undeniable flaws! (Culture, DayZ, Deadly Premonition, Gauntlet Legends, Kayne & Lynch 2: Dog Days, PC, PS3, Retro, Xbox 360)

I actually agree, though I'm ashamed to admit it. Did a playthrough once with a buddy, and I actually kind of enjoyed it, if just for the laughs at how bad it is.

SaGa Frontier 2. Terrible sequal, yet it had something about it that kept going back (SaGa 1 was way better)

If Dynasty warriors isn't here I'll cry!

Dynasty Warriors is awesome and hella fun! What'chu talkin 'bout, Willis!?
Reverent  +   587d ago
Dynasty Warriors has been the exact same game for the last 30 sequals... Talk about milking... I got bored after the 4th one.
Lord_Sloth  +   587d ago
^ If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

It hasn't changed. It keeps delivering the same, reliable, fun, kill over 100 hours on it's own experience every single game.

More than I can say for most franchises.
Reverent  +   587d ago
So you're one of THOSE guys... I already know arguing with you is useless, but come on... Almost FORTY games that are literally just reskins of the EXACT SAME game? It's a bareboned hack'n'slash game that requires virtually zero skill beyond some minor strategical awareness, the graphics have been nearly the exact same since Dynasty Warriors 3 (A game early on PS2 for crying out loud), and the game has had the same dull mechanics since the series adopted the 3D gameplay... It IS broken.

My friend is just like you. Perfectly willing to spend $120 on two copies of the game (Regular version and the Empires version) and will never admit that the game is crap now.

And seriously, what the hell kind of greedy ass dev does that? TWO exact copies of a game, one split for story mode, the other, for the strategy type mode... And sell them both for $60 each? Is their fanbase really that zombifed? Why can't they just stick the two together? It IS the exact same game... God, Dynasty Warriors is worthless just like the game's developers.

Honestly, if anything, you should be ashamed of yourself for supporting these guys.

Tenchu Z.

Everyone complains about it but I think it had the best controls, camera, levels and graphics (naturally) in the whole series.
LordLaguz  +   588d ago
It was kinda bad, but i ended up enjoying it more that many other "good" games.
Lord_Sloth  +   588d ago
It's the only reason I still have a 360 and half the reason I purchased it to begin with.
Bathyj  +   588d ago
Thats why I keep it too.

Deadly Premonition really is a once in a generation game that surprises and confounds you. A lot of people don't get it because they can't look past the graphics (even though there are parts that have had a lot more graphical work done to them) or the wonky combat mechanics. However, if you give it a chance and go with it, you would find an oddly satisfying survival horror which explores paths that are rarely trodden upon.

Also, one of the very few games (Red Dead Redemption had a character underneath bed covers) that actually gets bed covers right. Even Heavy Rain with all it's technological superiority still couldn't get their main characters underneath bed covers.

Shadows Of The Damned
Deadly Premonition
Two Worlds
Fist Of The North Star

Shadows of the damned is an excellent game... Don't know why you're putting it in the same category as the others
Mutant-Spud  +   587d ago
I found it's controls aggravating and it's full of cheap deaths, getting killed from behind and such, but it's so bizarre and psychedelic it's worth playing..."Taste my Big Boner!".
chazjamie  +   588d ago
im sorry but kane and lynch is unbearable. I played 3 minutes and felt nauseous.
pandaboy  +   588d ago
Enter the Matrix
DaReapa  +   588d ago
Good pick. But to a greater extent, I'd say The Path of Neo. That game had sooooo much potential, but may have been a little too ambitious for its time (on a technical level). That game done right with a little more polish, length, and consistency with the movies could have been something special.

What the hell is DayZ doing in the list ??
WittyAdrian  +   588d ago
I know right! DayZ is a great game that provides you a sense like no other. Also servers are really not that hard to find, just get a server thats is half full or more and it'll work.
The inventory system might not be the best, but if you fiddle around with it a bit, it isnt that bad. Certainly not bad enough to condemn the freaking game!
It can be a bit glitchy at times, but again nothing major. DayZ really doesnt deserve to be on this list!
Reverent  +   587d ago
Agreed. Day Z may have a lot of bugs and connection issues, but it's not even a finished game atm! Why the hell would they put a game that's still in development on this list?
Slugg3r  +   588d ago
Servers took long to find and connect to about four months ago. Novadays there's hundreds of servers, most of which have open places. And novadays it takes about 1 minute to connect to server and maximum of 5, if you were to connect on a full server. I personally have experienced hardly any lag after 1.7 updates. DayZ doesn't really deserve to be on the list.
tonynguyen06  +   588d ago
I've played Deadly Premonition personally, & it's the worst game I've ever had to go through in my life.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   588d ago
My coffee feels sorry for you but to each their own....

I don't think Kane and Lynch should be on that list because to be honest, you'll be a lot happier not playing it.
sazzrah  +   587d ago
Alpha Protocol deserves a play just for the risks it took and it's interesting take on storytelling.
PhoenixRising37  +   587d ago
Wanted: Weapons of Fate. I loved that game!
