Justin from TMSGamer continues his article on this worst games he's played this generation with part two.
Final Fantasy 13, while not as good as its predecessors, is still a relatively good RPG. Worthy of the Final Fantasy name and legacy? Probably not, but there are dozens of worse RPGs to have seen the day during this generation. Kane and Lynch Dog Days, for me, was quite enjoyable, as long as I had someone to play with. It's by no mean a great game, but as far as couch co-op games go, it was okay, and, while not for everyone, the story was different and actually had me care about the characters. As for the 3 other games, I must agree, they were pretty bad and had very little fun to offer. But, just like in the first part of this list, I feel the author is not listing the absolute worst games of the generation, but only those who went somewhat mainstream. Plenty of obscure JGRPs, action games and Call of Duty clones were way worse than anything listed.
When they start targeting games that haven't even released and calling them the "worst," you know they're just fishing. I was contemplating a click until I saw that.
Every single game on this list was released. What are you talking about?
I see XIII-3 in the tags, otherwise known as Lightning Returns. If that's not true, then that tag needs to be changed.
call of duty is repetitive. it is not a bad game. lowest i would give is a 7/10 MAYBE a 6/10 CoD4 is one of the best games from this generation
I wasn't referring to Call of Duty games, but rather the poor man's Call of Duty games some publishers rushed to the market in order to hop in the CoD bandwagon.
Simon cowell knows best! Also I agree with some of those games.
I think the word they're looking for is "disappointing."
Correct. Article is crap from a crap site.
Duke Nukem Forever was an ugly, glitchy, dated mess of a game. So how come the single player campaign managed to hold my attention much longer than any COD, Battlefield, Gears Of War or Halo campaign this generation? I know it's a terrible game, but through all the flaws, I still had a blast playing it. It felt like a PS2 game in a good way.
that's interesting ... i wanted to play duke nuken after seeing that you had to put your finger into an anus to open a door, but was put off by reviews. I agree with you though, it can't be as bad as COD. My personal worst game this gen was heavy rain.
The best way to play it: expect nothing, read the reviews, prepare for it to suck worse than anything you have played before, then play and realise that it's quite fun.
Most disappointing for me was Dead Island :(
I'm glad that game ended up being crap. Maybe now people will learn not to buying something just because it has zombies in it. Not only that, people should never fall for touchy/depressing trailers.
How is Kane & Lynch a bad game (not to mention the worst)? The story was decent, the visuals were nice at the time, and the way the camera was handled coupled with all the effects created an atmosphere not seen in any game before. Most importantly though, the characters were just a wee bit more interesting and original than your generic, angry at the whole world, sarcastic, dark-haired 30-something with a buzzcut, a stubble and a big mouth. Seems to me like the author's experience with games is a bit too limited to be making lists like this.
