Some games are so bad that their very faults become a reason to play them. Here are eight of the worst…
i liked the majority of those games and definitely wouldn't call them 8 of the worst games around
Picking the worst (or best) games is always subjective, but throwing in the "still worth playing" part makes it even more so. Jericho jumped into my mind when I saw the title. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Funny, I can't believe I actually played Jericho back in the day and beat it. Kinda even enjoyed it somehow LOL.
I liked Jericho too
It's probably a game that would seem much worse if I played it now, but I really enjoyed it then.
Yeah seriously, Dead Island and Assassins Creed?
Assassins creed, army of two and dead island shouldn't be here man c'mon
Don't let nostalgia flow through you, AC 1 was one repetetive game, assassinations were a blast though.
The combat was repetitive, but that was really the only flaw with the game. Well, some would argue the Desmond scenes ruined immersion, but the real problem was just repetitive combat. It doesn't qualify as one of the worst games and shouldn't be on this list.
@DragonKnight, it wasn't the combat. It was the fact that the entire game consisted of, "Go to this city, synchronize, assassinate important guy, move to next city, synchronize, assassinate important guy, move to next city..." I hope you see my point. Honestly, I liked the game a lot, but you really can't say it was JUST the combat that was repetitive. You were moving from city to city doing the EXACT same thing over and over again for the entire game.
Agreed, missions were repetitive however I wouldn't say its one of the worst games.
Agreed. Army of two and Dead island are a good time.
is this a joke right?
Dunno...IS this a joke right? More importantly, what is a joke right?
I know for sure what it isn't: a joke wrong. Think we can all agree on that...
Is this a joke maybe? I don't know.
Is that a joke perhaps?
Most of these games are ok to good.
Wait, The Force Unleashed was a bad game? That's new. Then again, its BT, which is one of the worst internet providers in the UK. They're opinions aren't really worth toffee.
Yeah I know, I loved the first Force Unleashed game, it was great. A little short, but it really ramped up Force usage and I had a blast.
I have to disagree the force unleashed was horrid. The tech demos for that game made it look so great. But in reality it stunk. I guess that game just makes me angry it had so much potential.
I liked the Force Unleashed. Admittedly, it wasn't the best game from a technical perspective; however, it was very fun to play, and isn't that what's most important?
I've only played four of the games on the list; Dead Island, Colonial Marines, Operation Raccoon City and Assassin's Creed. I love the original Assassin's Creed, Dead Island was good, Colonial Marines was decent and, honestly, I felt Operation Raccoon City was utter garbage. Different strokes.
Oh hey its Dan Maher from SentUAMessage. I forgot he existed.
force unleashed is always a good time ... they should make a movie based on it.
I wouldn't mind seeing something like that. I just want to see some more impressive displays of the Force tbh :P I mean, it's the Force for ****'s sake! The most impressive bits of Force use we got in the movies were Luke lifting his ship out of the water and Sidious throwing around senate platforms when fighting Yoda...
Operation Raccoon City worth to play with friend because a.i suck ass
Dead Island was only good with friends. But even still that game was a huge buggy mess. I also hated the run here, run there abundant quests in the game. I passed on part 2 but I heard it was the same monotonous grind fest.
I never really encountered most of the glitches people claim are in Dead Island, and I played quite a lot of that game. So yeah, I don't think it belongs here, as its pretty fun. And for some reasy, kicking in the head of a fallen zombie until they die never really seems to get old. Force Unleashed was mediocre with its share of glitches. Worst Game? No way. Assassin's Creed never appealed to me. I keep getting told by pretty much everyone that the sequels get better, but I can't even make it halfway through the first one before dying of boredom. Its a very well made game though, so I fail to see why its on this list.
Assassin's Creed was repetitive but it still had a great story and better world than other AC. I played the 2nd one first and it was okay. Then I played the first one and thought it was the best one. Brotherhood I just couldn't get into. The whole having to do stupid things to get 100% synchronization really ruined the game for me. Black Flag started off great, at first I thought it was the best one. But once I got halfway through the game, I started noticing how bad and rushed the game is. Its glitchy, repetitive, and the story and characters are a mess. The story just jumps around too much without smooth transitions. AC games are getting old and the whole memory thing ruined Black Flag. Why couldn't it just have been a pirate game? There was absolutely no reason to have this be an AC game. Haven't played any Aliens games, but Aliens is one of my top 10 favorite movies of all time so I was really happy when I heard they were going to make a game out of it. But even the E3 footage didn't excite so I just ignored the game.
I played Force Unleashed as Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker. It helped.. but the game did leave a lot to be desired. The 2nd one was just waaaay too short.
And not good. Don't forget the "not good" part.
I'd like to add Zeno Clash 2. It's bad in an entertaining way, well more so different, that it's good. Such a refreshing game and I'd consider it a gem.
Marlow Briggs does not deserve to be on this list. Actually really, quite entertaining with decent quality development.
assassins creed really?
Well it is a unique article basically bad games that are still worth playing... I'd actually have to agree ac1 was not as good as the hype... pretty repetitive once you got into it and a pretty laughable story, I couldn't finish it... not a terrible game but there are better
The Force Unleashed is the closest a game has come to making us feel like an all-powerful Jedi since Jedi Academy on PC???????? Looks like someone didn't play Knights of the Old Republic.
That game is awesome for totally different reasons. Jedi Academy and Force Unleashed are action games with totally different but similar mechanics. KOTOR is more of a turn based RPG. But ya, for the record KOTOR is easily top ten games EVER.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Big Rigs. Worth playing to see how bad it is.
Haha I prefer YouTube for games this bad...
Dead Island and Ass creed were good games
Man, I don't know what's wrong with me as a gamer.. But... I actually really enjoyed Assassins Creed and Dead Island. If you were to play them now, of course they are going to act bad since these games are old and there's no longer any support.
This list is complete garbage. It's like you've never actually played these games. You just got someone else' opinion.
Remember, this is just one persons opinion. It wasnt a group consenses. So its all a matter of opinion. I love dead island. Played sp and coop for probably 200 hrs +. To each his own. Aragon was bad but yea also movie based. I always think of that and not related but damn it i dont even wanna play the new SouthPark game anymore. The delays did it, now im ready for new Thief and TitanFall.
So you're saying the games are crap but still worth playing? Dumb logic my friend.
