7 Terrible Games That Made More Money Than They Should Have

Trevor takes a look at the top 200 highest selling games of all-time and manages to find a few totally craptastic titles on the list. (Culture, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Anyone else getting an odd vibe from that list?
Like maybe the author had something personal against each and every one of them?

I dunno, I think I'd like to try out Wrath of Cortex sometime, if I find it for a bargain, if only to see whether or not it actually lives up to all the bad reviews.

I personally enjoyed Wrath of Cortex and had no idea it had bad reviews :/
abzdine  +   748d ago
i liked Driver 2 a lot at that time.
wii sports and Play are maybe technically inferior but fun. same goes for Mario Party.

I expected Call of Duty and kinect

I liked Wrath of Cortex. The hate for that game didn't seem to pop up until just recently. For some reason the past few days I've randomly been seeing people say they hated that game..... lol

Why doesn't the author explain why Mario Party 8 is bad?
sobekflakmonkey  +   748d ago
I don't really think any of those games are bad. :/
Geobros  +   748d ago
Because ha has never played it. I really enjoyed multiplayer of MP 8 with my friends and my mrs.

I found it to be entirely mediocre. Not that it wasn't somewhat entertaining for awhile as a party game with roomates. But Mario Party 8 was the epitome of a lazy quick rehash. Just so many annoying design choices that it never left any good impression for a genre that could have shown off the Wiimote much better.

I really enjoyed driver 2.
Geobros  +   748d ago
Me too!!
MatrixxGT  +   747d ago
Me too, I spent countless hours driving around finding "special cars". I saw that screenshot though and was like "damn". LoL.

driver 2=bad

Bioshock Infinite sold tons and I'm probably one of the few people who hated it. I agree Medal of Honor Rising Sun was a terrible game.
Iamnemesis4880  +   748d ago
Bioshock was a good game but should have been in rapture glad about the dlc though
sobekflakmonkey  +   748d ago
You didn't like the floating city in the sky?
JasonKCK  +   748d ago
I just didn't like it. Love Bioshock but hated Bioshock Infinite. Felt too... casual. The fist game had a level of anxiety and sense of doom. Bioshock Infinite felt like a CoD roller coaster ride in the sky.
dcj0524  +   748d ago
I like infinite but it took the "Bioshock" out of it. If you played the first game at 3 AM with pukse headsets pitch black you would be a very paranoid and scared man. There was tension and mystery and i wanted ti know as much about the story as i could (audio logs). Infinite,a great game in it's self took the tension and mystery of the out imo.
Iamnemesis4880  +   748d ago
Medal of honour rising sun and war fighter are all-right did not buy them I rented them.v If you are not sure about buying a game rent first then judge if you want to buy them.Some people like games like that myself I need a challenge from a game. I am looking foreword to alien isolation, Tittanfall,Thief,Destiny, the wild hunt

I doubt if that guy has ever played Wii Play, MP 8 or Crash....

Wii Play came with a controller for only $10 more at a time when Wii Remotes sold out. Of course it sold well. For a $10 game, what do you want?

Also, Cooking Mama freaking rocks.
sweendog  +   748d ago
In the U.K Wii play+remote was cheaper than a remote on its own when I bought it. This has been known for years why its one of the best selling games ever. My kids still play Cooking Mama its a cool game
Moncole  +   748d ago
These games would have gotten higher scores if released today because every game gets rated a 10, 9 or 8.

good article .. certainly very helpful for those who read it. And maybe this game is not too bad

Mediocre and shallow games deserve to be on that list. It is pure luck they sold high sales numbers despite their fail review scores.
