5 Shockingly Dull Minigames (In Otherwise Awesome Games)

Whatculture:

There’s nothing quite as good at ruining an awesome game than a bad minigame. While the main game plays like a highly polished experience created by a dedicated team of talented developers, the minigame feels like it was hastily put together by a group of drunk monkeys.

Minigames are surprisingly common nowadays. Franchises such as Final Fantasy, The Legend of Zelda, Assassin’s Creed and Grand Theft Auto are all crammed with bite-sized distractions designed to keep things fresh and provide a bit of variety. They’re not all zingers, however. In fact some are downright terrible, completely lacking the innovation and creativity that their developers are known for. (BioShock, Grand Theft Auto V, Mass Effect, PC, PS3, Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Wii, Xbox 360)
