NowGamer: The PS3 has brought us some unforgettable classics, and some unforgettable stinkers...
Wouldnt agree with MAG but the others are pooh
I've put about 200 hours into MAG.... I guess that goes to show the quality of the PS3 line up when MAG is one of the worst exclusives... r.
When one lists MAG as a 'bad' exclusive, imagine how good the PS3 exclusives are!
mag was very overhyped and had poor overall quality and gameplay if you compare it to how awesome they made it look at E3. alot of people were disappointed
@Dave I think it was the other way round. There was a lot of expectation prior to last year's E3 until it got demo'd. After the demo people were a bit underwhelmed by what they saw. The beta later in the year didn't help much but I stuck with it, and after release I began to understand what was good and bad about MAG. It's not perfect at all, but it offers something no other platform (including PC) manages, requires skill, teamwork and has for that period been solid and largely lagless. New DLC today too :) r.
I'm another that have over 200 hours in. Loved every bit of it. Met a lot of people playing MAG.
"why did they put that on the list, why they put this on the list" This is just some article some dude in his under pants by his computer wrote down when they were bored and didn't know what to do to bring more hits to their site so they created a list. It is not some official list from the gaming gods but it seems everytime there one of these "top 5 whatevers" list there are gamers on here that look to them as gospel as if it was a scientific study and now the results are out becuase it was on N4G. Don't know why these top 10 blah blah article always get high degrees and hits but they do, odd.
It was a fun game i thought Haze was good from what i saw
First off, the inclusion of MAG is just ridiculous. Give your head a shake. Second, Haze was merely an average game. To include this in a "worst of" list just goes to show the author either never played the game, or doesn't play that many games. The gameplay was fun at times, the split-screen co-op was a blast, the split-screen online play with a guest was something more games should do and the story ambitiously tried to blur the lines between good and bad but unfortunately the attempt at social commentary didn't fit with the game. There were things that bugged me about the game, but it's far from a "worst of" game. MAG just leaves me puzzled. Did he play a different game? Maybe he confused it with Socom but even that game doesn't deserve to be on a "worst of" list.
no it just shows u have 200 hours to waste on bad game. 200 hours, wow, stay away from world of war craft then.
He probably never touched MAG or he's one of those rage quitters that get pwned so fast by vets or has the tendency to catch grenades. Probably just like those guys in pennyarcade. There's so much hate against MAG. I think, it's because people cant believe the 256 in action with tons of smoke, bullets, explosions, and 256 people moving around without lag. MAG, almost like Warhawk, has a steep learning curve. The more you die the faster you learn. Oh yeah, im taking in new clan members who wants to join me in SVER. The clan name is [AMF] "A Midget Fighter". The only requirements is that you have to have a medkit and resuscitation ability and that you kill as many red dots as possible. Just friend or message me on PSN.
Lol. NowGamer is hardly dudes in their underpants. Do some research before posting slights at the site. Anyway... the article 'Top Five Worst Xbox 360 Exclusives Ever" is under construction and going up shortly. Which I'm sure will make you happy.
How would one go about researching a d-list amateur games website? I think that you are a little bit too impressed with these hacks.
He IS one of those hacks you speak of. LOL
They have a score of 5/10 http://www.nofussreviews.co...
Except that article is just as garbage. Say what you will about the 360 or the Halo series, but ODST is far from a bad game, let alone one of the worst exclusives for the system. Both of these articles are just flame-bait garbage posted for some quick hits.
MAG? Seriously? Pffft, this guy know crap, MAG Delivers, I'd put X-edge in that list...
MAG DOES NOT SUCK! MAG WAS REALLY FUN I JUST DONT PLAY IT ANYMORE.
This list is decent, all the have to do is put Mobile Suit Gundum in First, and shift everything else back one, and its good. That way Mag will not be on there, as it doesn't deserve to be.
MAG is a great game, I have almost 300 hours logged in and I can't think of a game on the PC, 360 or PS3 (I don't own a Wii) that I put that much time into for an online game. The only thing that this game needs is a single player game, even one with a flimsy story like UTIII. Lair is another great game that got shot down for no good reason, Gametrailers assassinated that game acting like a feature that Factor 5 put in so people could see what the dragon picks up and thrown was a huge bug in the game. The game isn't perfect, but it still stands as probably the most technically advanced game out on consoles until someone can lay down another game and go feature by feature and show me otherwise. As a matter of fact, if anyone can do that I'd appreciate it if they'd tried... they'd lose, but I'd appreciate it. Haze is butt, but some liked it. I played it and my brother and me were laughing at how bad it was. The multiplayer was ok though; but it won't win any awards. I didn't play the other ones.
Liar was epic. A lot of graphical glitches though in the night mission. It took me forever to figure out how to kill the big serpent thing in the ocean. I love the epic battle in the sky with the floating rocks and those damn giant dragons on steroids. They made my dragon look like a kitten next to them.
Mag was a decent FPS i recommend it for hardcore shooter fans but one of the worst ps3 exclusives lol no way
disagree with MAG and Lair. Both are good
lair is lovely grat sound great battles controll took getting used to breat for a first gen game mag is mag yes it took a graphics hit but they focusedo n the netcode so decent graphics for a decent multiplayer game...sorry not on that list
Trying to decrypt what you wrote... Lair is good, MAG has crappy graphics but shouldn't have been on the list? ...jeez
not crappy graphic but it took a hit to freeup more cpu time for network stuff
how on earth did MAG get on that list?? they must be a COD noob 0_0 I am glad WKC did not feature on that list, I love that RPG lots:):)
cod noob? are you good at cod? probably not. you = cod noob.
Anyone can be good at CoD because it takes no skill. My sister, who's 14 doesn't do that bad. MAG actually takes skill
COD is run and gun and powerups. And if you say hardcore mode, noobs use the heartbeat sensor and ninja crap and camp like little wusses.
you a noob simple. Aiming is a basic step of shooting, but many people fail to do that
BWUAHAHAHA! He thinks he has skillZ in COD?! COD requirs skillzzz? That's news to me.
i bet you im better than all of you at CoD. MAG is the worst shooter ive played after haze this gen. What are your CoD K/d's or win ratios & streaks if its so easy? i bet mine makes yours look embarrassing. in fact, i bet im better than you at mag too. have any of you kids who spend all day on this site even won money on a game? have you been on gb? no? then stop talking as if you were good GG
We haven't had nice samurai (not ninja) action like that since Onimusha. It got hammered in the reviews because of the infamous "giant enemy crab". I've played the game twice and it ties in nicely with the 1st one and has some pretty epic moments. Not bad, considering I bought the thing for $20.
I respectfully disagree, as one who bought Genji 2 full price at launch, even when compared to the somewhat lackluster launch titles of the PS3, Genji was subpar, the graphics left me completely unimpressed, the combat did not entertain me at all. The only reason this game sold some copies is because there wasn't much else to play on the PS3 at the time, with the exception of Resistance. And while it did get hammer by gamers for the Giant enemy crab thing, critics hammered it because it was a poorly made game. It might have been worth 20$, but it definitely was not worth 60$. @MaximusPrime MAG is a great game, but Lair, not so much, at least when played using the SIXAXIS. I know they released a patch to use "regular" controls, but the fact remain that when it was released, the game was barely playable and was utterly unresponsive. The worst part about it has to be the fact that Factor 5 said they were using the sixaxis because the game would be unplayable using normal controls... yet they released a patch a few months later to allow it...
uising the unresponsive controll to me felt like i was controlling a large angry fire breathing critter, its not a f16 it handles like it hass mass whats the problem with that? lair was fine i enjoyied it greatly loved the story reason it got marked down it people expected something it wasnt same with mag
Genji was disappointing to me and a bad game. It could have been good, but they made too many weird faults. I really liked the PS2 Genji game, but the PS3 one was misguided. The camera was too close to the character, and you couldn't see all enemies around you. When the combat system (which is actually quite good) depends on countering and avoiding enemies that's no good. Also the fixed camera made the platforming parts an annoying chore of misguided jumps and deaths. It could also be hard to find out exactly where you were supposed to go and how to get there. It got so bad and annoying that I didn't even finish the game, it just wasn't fun...
They aren't that bad.. Alot of fun to play, Excellent graphics too
i totally agree with this list none of them in my collection
All those games suck a big one, but MAG is pretty good, just takes some getting use to.
MAG is awsome, The rest are a bit MEH.
I can think of a lot worse games, how about 1) Go! Sports Skydiving 2) Afrika 3) Conan 4) G1 Jockey 4 2008 5) Wagan Midnight Pretty sure their all 'exclusive'.
Good bad list, but I think they don't include lovely PSN downloadable junk. Just retail titles, please.
I don't think Conan was PS3 exclusive, I'm pretty sure I played the demo on 360. Also I would use retail titles not PSN titles, there's to many crappy ones to make a list, same goes for Xbox Live Arcade.
Afrika's idea was actually great but the budget and execution was terrible. I actually bought it thinking it was going to be like teh old Encarda stuff with tons of videos and info but it was really lacking. Conan is fun for what it is, and it has boobs so not that bad! LOL
Afrika isn't bad. It's a slow camera based game. Not for everyone, but that's how it is. My wife plays this game. It is a very beautiful game, like Wii's Edless Ocean. I would give it a 7.0, which by no means is bad.
Conan was pretty fun (multiconsole though). You just have to adjust your expectations, but the gameplay was fun. Boss battles were a bit annoying in some cases.
sorry afrika is fine for what it is and a companys first ps3 game replace afrika with lesure suit larry
Conan wasn't awful, it was just 100% derivative.
IS a great game ...whoever wrote this lost all credibility when they put MAg up there..
Well said... Agreed!
I think MAG is very divisive amongst gamers. I played it 30 hours and couldn't stand it, but I wouldn't say it's a bad game, just not for me. My brother on the other hand played the hell out of it. Just one of those games that's either a love//hate thing. Lair would be in the same boat for me, I actually liked that game, even with the wonky controls. -CadDad
I think Last Rebellion deserves to be on the top. Vampire Rain: Altered Species is second for me. SOCOM:Confrontation should be around there too.
OMG, that game sucks so bad. Wasted 40 dollars on that sucker. The story is so stupid and the gameplay is a big WTF.
Why MAG is there?!? Just to know O_o
Only played Haze and I would definitely agree with the decision. Although the multiplayer was all that bad.
Meant wasn't all that bad.
Also, if the controls are a problem with LAIR, try using the analogue stocks. Or are games never allowed to improve, and must always be remembered for how bad (the gaming journalists at the time thought) they were? Crappy, uninspired article because the journalist had nothing better to do. We get it: ever platform has bad exclusives, we don't need 10 articles (in the loosest definition of the word) telling us about them over and over again.
Which is more than I can say for ninjabread man.
I'll never forget Lair. It was the first game I bought for my PS3 and it was so damn bad, imo! The analogue stick update didn't help it either.
Lol - I had a friend who bought a PS3 after trying Lair around my house! Different strokes I guess.
MAG IS A AN AMAZING GAME. WAY BETTER THAN MOST.
Some of these are actually quite good. Lair is excellent after all the patching. Haze is mediocre, and so is Genji. MAG is good/very good. Either this list is an homage to the quality of PS3 exclusive titles, or he simply forgot that Vampire Rain: Altered Species and Untold Legends exist.
In my book, MAG > CoD. What we have is a game that didn’t sell 10% as much as Halo/CoD, which has a rather small online player community, but boy is it a blast to play. Thankfully, the CoD noobs have mostly left MAG now. What you have instead is an intense tussle between squads that are equally matched and good at working together. I was lucky to be in a match yesterday between two strong clans and some of the flanking moves were breathtaking.
Man, I rape in MAG. I use to get extended knife and butcher the whole lot of Valor. Was part of Sver and Raven. Almost finished all 3, but I got no more internet for my PS3. (Stealing internet from my neighbors till I move..LOL)
MAG? seems to me that somebody dont have skills lol , shooter isnt my thing but MAG isnt a bad game but opinions are opinions , they have theirs i have mines , i love MAG , i have reach level 60 with VALOR , im at level 57 with SVER , oh and i mostly play Domination EDIT: i like Lair too , i hope theres a LAIR 2
Lair really should not be on that list. I dont understand how everyone is so bad at adapting to a new control scheme. While i will admit thet there were some gameplay issues such as the lock on system the motion controls worked perfectly fine. Maybe for those of you who hated it should have done the tutorials first. the gameplay wasn't bad enough to give the game such low marks from the reviewers when it had a lot going for it such as graphics and the most epic soundtrack i have ever heard in a video game. Sony should ask John Debony to compose some more for them. Back to gamplay, developers are not always going to please everyone. For instance i feel bad for developers who choose to make FPSs that arent COD as all everyone dose is b***h about how the controls are different than COD seriously everyone needs to grow up. Finally the games epic fail is completely Sony's fault.
mag hit the list - wtf nowgamer MAG is so fun and addicting, MAG > COD
EXCEPT Lair and MAG. First of all, Lair's big "issue" wasn't even an issue. People just cried and whined about the controls because they lack dexterity. If people would have stopped jerking the controller all over the place and just moved fluidly you'd see the controls were just fine. MAG is probably one of the more realistic FPS
