2017 was a great year for video games but there were more than a few duds released over the last 12 months. Here are 2017’s worst games.
Personal opinions on this one, granted some did have a bad launch but they made them games better with updates (which tbh shouldnt be that way if games not ready delay it)
I'm the only person who kinda enjoyed ME:A. Wasn't that bad.
Uhh, Yea it was. You can like the game cus personal reasons all you want. For me personally, Peebee was adorable and saved the game for me. But.. You shouldn't hide behind that and ignore the fact that it was released with characters learning DBZ fuuu-sion-HAAAA during several cutscenes of the game, or people falling through the world, or characters body's folding like paper oragami during cutscenes.. The fact that the story was unfinished, boring, uninspiring with clanky movement and LGBT/Middle East agendas thrown at my head every time I meet a new character in the fkn game. The ~~~TWO~~~ alien races were boring, the threat was boring, the main character was his own comedy show that nobody in his own crew gave a shit about, and besides that the game was really just a bunch of big open areas with some typical sandbox content thrown into it to keep people from realizing it's a really short game by having them drive around a lot looking for artifacts or people's angry sisters and shit. No.. The game was pretty bad... I'm happy you liked it though.
I've played through the whole 10hrs of the demo in a hurry in order to cover ground and see if I 'd like the game. Well I did not hate it but damn what a downgrade it was from ME3...the dialogue was boring, the protagonist... stiff and uninspiring...gunplay was ok while movement was hit or miss. Facial animations were done better on the ps3/360 era. Suffice to say I wont be buying. Its a shame.
Read what narsaku said, minus the angry anti-SJW stuff, which I didn't see. But everything from the story to the gameplay to the graphics were really bad - and that is the core of any game.
I liked it as well. Damn good game, imo.
I uninstalled it yesterday, just couldn't be bothered to continue the story tbh. The writing is painfully bad
I didn't have any problem with the facial animations and the graphics were very good. However, the game was extremely boring. So boring that I could bring myself to play it anymore after about 12 hours. Started off ok, but the characters and dialogue were horrendous. The missions were terrible and the main story didn't move along enough for me to care what was going on.
No it was good. and the Nomad driving parts were a billion times better than the past games. Just the story for me was lacking that spark. Yes game had bug's like most pissed out rushed game's do these days. But most of them have been fixed and game is great now.
I'm loving the game so far. Had the good fortune of playing the patched version without the ugly animations/glitches. It's not of the same caliber as the original series IMO but its a good game in its own right. To each their own though.
I also really enjoyed mass effects andromeda, I played it from start to finish cause it was so good. I'll admit that it is not better than previous mass effect games but it's still great.
I loved it too
I spend many hours enjoying it. I think a lot of people don't understand what a bad game is. Disappointing =/=bad. Rushed out and unpolished at launch is also not the same as straight bad.
People were just expecting was too high. Remember ME last gen was rated 9.5 Up. Personally its an 8.5 yes still very good but just not up to the level of previous games.
There were many worse games this year, barring Road Rage. Perhaps this should be “The 5 Worst Games I Bought In 2017”.
Super Bomberman R is a rip.
Whenever I see games like Mass Effect Andromeda or Valkyria Revolution on these lists, I think the writer perhaps didn’t play enough games in 2017 to find the actually crappy ones, or is just begging for hits. Like, where is Life of Black Tiger? All of these titles are masterpieces when compared to that one.
Own a few of these unfortunately :(
Personally and go ahead and down vote i don't give a F. But personally Persona 5 was in my worst 5 list. After all the hype around the game i decided to play it and found it the most boring and tedious thing i played all year. Give me Andromeda over that any day. Like i said it's my personal opinion that i and everyone else are entitled to. Just because a game reviews well does not mean that all of us will like it.
Same with me. I enjoyed Andromeda but have never played The Witcher III or Bloodborne and may never.
I find Andromeda to be better than ME3. At least Andromeda is still trying to be an RPG instead of an average shooter. It’s not without its fair share of issues though. But not enough of them for it to be considered one of the worst games of 2017 IMHO.
I’m gonna ask out of curiosity. Do your like JRPGs? If so, had you ever played another game in the SMT/Persona franchise? I’m not criticizing you for not liking P5 btw. I personally love it, but forcing yourself to play a game just because of the hype it gets can and will usually bring disappointment.
I love RPG'S in general and also love Japanese games. The Yakuza series are amazing played every one. And yeah have enjoyed several full JRPG'S in the past and enjoyed them. I just guess the Persona series is not for me.
Yeah, it’s not for everyone. I mean, the game literally throws chores and social aspects at you. Those alone would put off a lot of people.
Oh God that face. MAKE IT STOOOOOP.
I'm sorry but Mass Effect Andromeda was a good game that had a few bugs. No one can honestly say it was a top 5 worst game of the year if they had actually played it.
