Top 5 Best, Worst Games of this Generation

When you ask someone what they think the worst game they've ever played is, you're bound to get a lot of different answers. After all, you all play different games and have different tastes. (Alone in the Dark, Culture, Deadly Premonition, Earth Defense Force 2017, Eat Lead: The Return Of Matt Hazard, PS3, Sonic Unleashed, Xbox 360)

I liked you list man. While these games are pretty bad, there are cool features to be found. I might just check out Alone in the Dark now.

"Deadly Premonition

Platform: Xbox 360

Release Date: 2010

In Short: Twin Peaks meets old school survival horror video games.

The Bad: PS2 quality graphics, poorly written dialog, old school tank controls

The Reason it’s the second Best, Worst Game: Weird/Quirky characters and story, Low Budget price of $20, 20 hours of gameplay.

Final Thought: I highly recommend giving this game a shot. There is no other game like it out there and it’ll be the best $20 dollars you’ve spent all year; plus you’ll fall in love with the town theme song."

HAHA YES!!! This is one of my favorite games on the 360. It's so funny and campy and can actually be pretty unnerving when it needs to be. It's the best $20 I've ever spent. It's also a LOT more than 20 hours of gameplay. The story itself is 20 hours. Then there's 50 side-missions and 64 cards to collect in an open world (mostly driving) that's about twice the size of San Andreas.

I'm having a hard time finding Earth Defense Force 2017. Borrowing it from a friend and it's nothing but amazing. If you ever see these two games in stores, pick them up without hesitation.

Deadly Premonition is an instabuy if you have a passing interest in survival horror or adventure type games. The story is one you will never forget!
HolyOrangeCows  +   1765d ago
Earth Defense Force and Alone in the Dark Inferno are good ones.

You clearly didn't bother to read the article.

A perfect example of the N4G crowd NOT reading articles and just going for headlines.

The headlines is misleading.

I feel sorry for SONIC
SONIC died years ago.
Montrealien  +   1765d ago
tell that to the 6 year old that bought Sonic Rush yesterday.
gamelova  +   1766d ago
IMO, the 5 best are Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, Metroid Prime 3:Corruption, LittleBigPlanet, and Demon's Souls. God of War 3, Uncharted 2, and Bioshock are the runner ups.

Uhhhh, ok...
but these are the top 5 best, worst games. Not the top 5 best games.
Conloles  +   1766d ago
You might as well just say IMO the best consoles are the PS, PS2, PS3 and PSP.

I'll save my judgment for SMG2 seeing as it isn't out in my country yet. Besides that are ridiculous, Metroid 3 stunk, Uncharted 2 is clearly the best game so far of this console generation and LBP isn't even a game its just a platform for making your own games.

Huh? He mentioned Nintendo. You're saying that cuz he didn't mention a Xbox game?
Quagmire  +   1766d ago
think gamelova completely missed the point to this article
gamelova  +   1766d ago
You are right, all i saw was stupid games so I imagined that they were talking about the five worst. I didn't read it, I guess I should have.
gamelova  +   1766d ago
the playstation consoles are the best,easily, but I think SMG2 is the best game this gen, hands down. I played Bioshock on the 360. I have all three consoles, it's just my favorite games happen to be on the PS3.
SilverSlug  +   1766d ago
Unleashed at least had half a good game. LOL this list is horrible.
ceedubya9  +   1765d ago
Isn 't that the point of the list?
Games that are bad in some ways, but have some elements that make them surprisingly good and worth checking out?
Clutch04  +   1766d ago
I wouldn't say Earth Defense Force is a "Best, Worst Game". It's just a pretty good game period. If you like co-op and just mindlessly blasting bad guys, then you'll have plenty of fun. Just because it doesn't have good graphics would I consider it bad. I would put it under the category of "Best Low-Budget Games".
dizzleK  +   1766d ago
even though the article was kinda going for humor i wouldn't consider anything about any of those games to be truly bad. for a "best worst game" theres more fun and creativity in something like edf than a stack of overhyped swill.

i understand what the author was going for but it should have been "best cheap games" or something.
Myze  +   1765d ago
"even though the article was kinda going for humor i wouldn't consider anything about any of those games to be truly bad."

Have you not seen or played Deadly Premonition? If a game has ever been "truly bad," that would be it. There are quite a few parts that are so bad that they are "charming" and funny, almost making it worth the $20. There is nothing, however, that is actually well done in the game. Gameplay, graphics, story, voice-acting, controls, etc. are some of the worst I've seen since 1st generation ps1 games (the bad ones).

I liked Earth Defence Force, Mindless Fun.
KratosGIRL  +   1765d ago
I agree with you sir :D
Aphe  +   1765d ago
ShellShock 2: Blood Trails should be on any list of the worst games this gen.
Acquiescence  +   1765d ago
So bad it's good eh?
Ps1 title Incredible Crisis springs to mind. Gameplay consisted of nothing but a collection of awful, shallow mini-games, but the madcap Japanese charm that was prevalent throughout was hard to deny. It could be pretty damn funny.
atc1982  +   1765d ago
aw there is a lot more bad games IMO
Dark_Overlord  +   1765d ago
I actually enjoyed
Eat Lead, am I the only one who did?
jmasterj03  +   1765d ago
No you are definately not the only one, I thoroughly enjoyed that game. some troubling parts but one of my favorite platinums I've gotten.

And I must say how sad it is that some ppl are sooooo stupid they can't even understand the point of this article. It isn't "The best game evar" list or "The worst game evar" list

Atleast the gameplay should be decent when deciding on a best worst game.I agree Deadly Premonition and Eat Lead should be on the list,but the others are barely playable especially Sonic.How is frustration going to make you enjoy a game.

-ninety nine nights
-kengo zero

a bunch of games for masochists.. there is a lot of sh1t this gen... and it is not over.
chazjamie  +   1765d ago
this gen sucks.
hahahahahahahahaa, that made me laugh. and ha. its true there are lot of turds out there and we seem to forget about them. there is more bad games than good games imo. and all this current gen games are way toooooooo short, considering the increase in price. so they kind of all bad for me.
bjornbear  +   1765d ago
lol @ people absolutely not getting it
i also thought about it for a second xD

still...not a great list =/

the best of the worst...limbo, the absolute boredom, the worst of it all...=(
TooTall19  +   1765d ago
I think you still don't completely get it lol
These are bad games this gen, but there is still something to enjoy about them. It's basically an article saying if you're going to play a crappy game, play these. There is nothing good about limbo, hence why it isn't on the list.
Glitch100  +   1765d ago
Good Read
Was a well written article. To add to Alone in the Dark, the part where you had to burn down like loads of those demon hell tree root things.. So repetitive ... It was amazing- Up to that point.
lh_swe  +   1765d ago
How can they forget to mention Ninjabread Man
That game was truly aweful but the worst game I think I have played is Largo Winch me and my sis had soo much fun with it because it was soo bad it was comical.
fOrlOnhOpe57  +   1765d ago
As far as any PS3 exclusives go....
my biggest disappointment would have to be Haze. Greatly overhyped and sadly a huge letdown from such a notable developer.
ian72  +   1765d ago
Alone in the Dark for PS3 is a decent horror game. Well worth getting if you can find it cheap and like horror. I don't know about PC/360 though, I heard its not too good on those.
itsralf  +   1765d ago
Cajun Chicken  +   1765d ago
EDF is one of the best exclusive games you can get for 360. Seriously not kidding.
danielle007  +   1765d ago
I bought Deadly Premonition day 1
But then all these other games came out ... and then I got distracted... sigh. So yeah, I'm going to go back and actually play it soon. Haha..
pody  +   1765d ago
Haha "Top five best, worst games..."

Who write's this stuff, 6 year old's? Journalism nowadays, wow!
Dead_Cell  +   1765d ago
Reading comprehension nowadays.
pody  +   1765d ago
I understand it just fine, I just think it could've been written better.

"Top five best of the worst..."

Then people dont have to read it over and over again to get it. It's just bad writing.
Dead_Cell  +   1765d ago
Learn it live it love it.
Jack Klugman  +   1765d ago
EDF does not deserve to be on that list at all!! It's not bad, its the way it was supposed to be. The thing was even a budget title when it launched and you got every bit of bang for your buck. its campy japanese attack of the giant monster/arcade style game that at the time the amount of stuff going on and draw distance were impressive.
