FFX story was perfect including the dream part, also crappy list.

I agreed with some of them, but I just hate how dumb the reasoning is behind some of the others.

SPOILER Black Ops Twist:

"Also, the fact that no other characters ever spoke to Reznov besides Mason didn't really help."

You mean like the plethora of split-personality plot twists that inspired this one?

the whole ghost thing on FFX was just plain retarded.

Sensationalist title. Stupid list.

Many of these games didn't have good stories to begin with, despite being good games. They certainly didn't ruin them. Some of the twists were fine if not good for a more interesting story, like FFX.

One of them isn't even a "story twist" but is an MMO expansion.

Meh, weak. I could think of plenty more absurd twists for the sake of being twists examples.
