I say DNF should be number 1. When have we ever witnessed a game take SOOO long to come, give itself SOOO much hype, yet be SOOO terrible. Its unprecedented, I think it dethroned Too Human tbh as the biggest disappointment ever

Breaking the mould dude, not the biggest dissapointments or let downs.

I think Shadows of the Damned should have been up there for its sense of humour, level design and art style. Suda 51 has broken the mould with several games like Killer 7 and No more Heroes.

I'm not far from getting platinum from L.A. Noire and it's one of the most original and fresh games in a long while IMO. It's not the best game out there or everyone's cup of tea but for someone like me who's always enjoyed all kinds of detective stuff, this game is a very enjoyable experience.

If you enjoyed L.A. Noire, I'd recommend the Harry Bosch series' books by Michael Connelly. There's a lot of similarities and little things that reminded me of those great books in this game despite them being two different kinds of media.
