I'm not sure if DNF is hated MORE than A:CM, but interesting list!

I'd agree. Five main reasons A:CM is my most hated game.

First there's gearbox's outsourcing of borderlands 2 DLC which shows a willful intent to try and take credit for someone else's work while shoveling us total crap. Aliens was most definitely not a mistake but just one of a series of business ventures made by gearbox that aimed to push the workload onto companies without the customers or investors realizing.

Secondly there's the aliens rpg that actually looks awesome which we now know was cancelled, further rubbing in the wound that was aliens: CM.

Thirdly, no one has ever looked into a camera, not even Peter Molyneux, and bullshitted their video game so much in the history of the universe. Not even Romero's infamous bitch ads were this stupid because at least Romero didn't have twitter back then.

Fourthly, yeah twitter. Let's run with that and Randy Pitchfords pathetic self-sorry attitude of "I'm an optimist" and so on. This has guy has screwed up - as a developer and a company executive. He outsourced his product to a terrible company and it didn't work out and he won't even take the rap for it like a man. He just tucks his nuts away and shows his ass to twitter asking for gentle kisses and nothing more. To make the whole situation even more of a mockery I think he's drawing lipstick kisses on his hands to try and boost his ass' ratings. It's laughable.

Finally, what upsets me the absolute most about A:CM? Sega will have taken a massive financial hit on this so buy buy franchise for the next decade. What SHOULD be an epic and thriving sub-genre of games is in reality a pitiful string of attempts that have shown no progress since Avp2 in the late 90's. A:CM should have turned it around but instead filled the gaps of its own tomb with polyfill just to ensure a quick asphyxiation.

MGS2 is an amazing game. It doesn't deserve to be hated, at all.

I agree, despite the whole Raiden thing, i think the overall game was still really enjoyable.

Plus it pushed the boundaries of gameplay and graphics on console level, something DNF didn't even scratch the surface of.

I understood why people got upset over the whole Raiden deal in MGS2. But I thought he was a decent character.

who ever put metal gear solid 2 in there needs to go smack them selves sideways.

Well, whether it's hated or not, I'm still enjoying Aliens: Colonial Marines!
Max-Zorin  +   1011d ago
MGS2 was actually good.

This list is just one persons personal opinion but I can agree on one game in that list but I wouldn't use the term "hate". I really disliked DMC 2 it was a real big let down. Now in the list ET was a horrible Atari game but because of how famous it is for that reason its enjoyable to play.

ill admit DNF was a guilty pleasure, the fact it was so bad made it kinda cool, the shooting was fine, and i had a laugh with all the toilet humor, as a package it was pretty rough but theres far worse!
