4Chan Awards List Mass Effect 3, Diablo 3, War Z As Worst Games Of The Year

Gaming Blend "A list of “vidya gaem awards” have been handed out by the underbelly of the internet trolling community, 4Chan. Since video game journalism is about as reputable as an obese racing horse with diabetes, the good /V/irgins decided to host their own gaming awards and unsurprisingly, the worst games of the year were the ones that were called out for anti-consumerism one way or another." (Diablo III, Industry, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, The War Z, Xbox 360)

I hated ME3 ending and the way EA handle the SP DLC but the game was improvement compared to ME2. Where I felt EA just hand the game over to Epic during the development process and strip some to most of the ME1 features/elements.
Is it suited to be called worst game of the year? Nope

I always hear crap about D3 being terrible but PC gamers went out brought it in-spite knowing about the always online requirement and the RMTS(Real money trading system).

If a game truly is terrible then don't buy it.

The WarZ out of the 3 really do deserve the worst game of the year. If EA want to see bad example how to do a microtransaction system they should look at WarZ. The mts is just the tip of the iceberg, sadly.

The award wasn't worst game of the year. The award was most hated game of the year. There's actually a difference when you think about it.

Even if a game is considered "good" you can still end up hating it.

From what I've heard and seen of side quest management, the limited and removed choices in conversation options, I really have to disagree with you in regards to ME3. The issues with the ending just made the rest less notable.

I didn't even find a big issue with the ending, I don't know what ppl wanted.
silvacrest  +   563d ago
ppl wanted something better

i mean....for such a epic game to end with such a lackluster sequence of events...disappointing doesnt even cover it

the thing i dont get is after all the hard work that went into all three games why skimp right at the end?
aliengmr  +   563d ago
Ohh, I don't know, maybe battle the Reapers instead of some random space brat.

Something similar to ME2s final mission is what I actually expected. Except like a crazy version of it.

What we got was an meh battle for Earth capped of by 1 ending in 3 different colors that made no sense. It was so cheap and clearly rushed.

I understand that totallyy. But i just don't get the crazy overreaction people had. Internet threats, boycotting, sending cupcakes. They didn't do a good job but they definitely didn't deserve that stuff.

Have you played the War Z??? I understand people might prefer Day Z, but the amount of hate this game gets is stupid. Best 15 bucks I spent this year. 60 hours deep and the game will continue to improve. You want a bad game play the new aliens game. People should try playing games before hating them because its popular. The War Z has only taken 15 bucks from me and given me more than most 60 dollar games give me. Rant out

So, N4G has completely given up on moderation?

there was moderation here?

You gotta admit, though : that's a pretty entertaining/good list.

If we approve articles of interviews done on some random "gamer girl," Kotaku articles, obvious troll bait from opinion pieces, and stuff like "If Luigi had a dating sim profile," then I see absolutely nothing wrong with this.

At least this was funny.

Goddammit all of my hate for Jessica Chobot just came back.

"So, N4G has completely given up on moderation?"

"OH MY GOD THERE'S AN ARTICLE ABOUT HOW A COUPLE OF PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY PLAYS GAMES CREATED THEIR OWN VIDEOGAME AWARD SHOW AND ACCEPTED VOTES FROM ACTUAL PEOPLE! QUICK TAKE THIS ABOMINATION DOWN OTHERWISE MUH BELOWED IGN'S LATEST GAME REVIEWS WILL NEVER MAKE IT TO 1000 DEGREES!"

Joking aside, are you really bound to auto pilot when it comes to newspieces about 4chan or what people from 4chan thinks (eventhough it is relevant gaming news)? Is that why you just have the sudden urge to question the lack of moderacy when there are hundreds of pointless "hurr I'm gurl gaymhur give me attenshun" or "someone called me a name on the internet, please someone alert NASA and give me more attention" articles that gets approved each month? Seriously?

No. I have a problem with most articles on this site. Kotaku is a joke. IGN sucks, as well. So, don't get that idea.

I'm gonna go ahead and report that one for "personal attack". Good job.
Blacktric  +   563d ago
Not liking articles that are up to at least some sort of quality standard (in this case) is your problem. Same goes for comparing articles like this to the fecal matter that sites like IGN produces. But eventhough you are really sensitive, at least you are honest, so I guess that counts for something.

great list
Krimmson  +   564d ago
That Phil Fish quote is hilarious.
"Spending a week with the film industry crowd makes me appreciate the game crowd all that much more. We're cool."

Keep in mind, this is the same guy that said, and I quote, "Gamers are the worst f***ing people."

Yeah, that really bothered me.

He's such a hypocrite for cash.
Th3 Chr0nic  +   564d ago
do people care about 4chan.......no no they dont
PurpHerbison  +   563d ago
But people sure do bite off of 4chan, thus the widespread of the new internet culture that has popped up over the recent years.

There are bad games, games with bad controls, graphics, camera, mechanics... Those are easily avoidable if you get a bit of info about them in most cases.

Then there are terrible games that fool you play them until the end just to realize what a terrible waste of time they were and that you kept playing just to get to the fun part (that never arrived)

And then there are goddamn awful games that rip your dreams, hopes and very soul apart, and Mass Effect 3 is one of those
MooseyXTC  +   564d ago
The skits were awful.
Some of the choices irritated me. [Katawa Shoujo writing is better than Max Payne 3? is this meta-trolling?]
The lack of interesting commentator/announcers made it worse.

But I enjoyed it.
Somehow.
ninjahunter  +   564d ago
Oh 4chan, your cheeky bastards.
Eyesoftheraven  +   564d ago
I don't get it, how does Borderlands 2 make #10 best writing and #4 most atrocious writing...
ninjahunter  +   563d ago
If theres a way, 4chan will do it.
SSJBen  +   563d ago
Hmmmmmm.

Mass Effect 3 = most dissapointing sequel of the year.
Diablo 3 = most dissapointing game of the year.
WarZ = worst game of the year.

That's how it should be.
Swiftcricket  +   563d ago
Honestly I agree with this list way more than any professional news site's choices.
Qrphe  +   563d ago
Probably because these were unadulterated votes from gamers, unlike most "professional" gaming sites.
Strejc  +   563d ago
I liked mass effect 3 multiplayer...
