Games We Wish We Could Forget

Karl Dodds, Brian O'Donnell, Buddy Acker, and Karam Elahi from SpawnFirst write up about some gaming experiences that they'd rather forget: "As gamers, we generally like to experiment. Whether it be impulse buying a game you know nothing about because you saw it in your local game shop and it caught your eye, or, playing a game critically praised you just can’t get along with, we’ve all experienced these personal duds. So in the same vein as our last feature, I threw this question out to some of the SpawnStaff team: What is a game you wish you could erase from your memory for good?"

Speaking of Homefront, shouldn't we be seeing the sequel from Crytek soon?

The Matrix: Path of Neo.

Horrible. Just horrible.

Dude, that game was amazing, the story was odd, but the combat was wonkily amazing.

It was like a really really early alpha build of what Batman's free flow combat would end up being.

deathtok3653d ago

Sorry! I meant 'Enter the Matrix'. I never played the follow-up.

snarls2003653d ago

thankfully i never played any on the list

Well Homefront and Duke Nukem Forever were day one purchases. In fact, DNF was a preorder. I enjoyed both but Homefront could've been so much more. Hopefully they pull an Assassin's Creed with the sequel.

God damn Megadeth Duke Nukem anthem is the best.

Snookies12614d ago

It is pretty amazing, I remember being so hyped that they covered the Duke theme back when it happened haha. I still quite enjoyed Forever though personally.

Venoxn4g614d ago

It is great, you should check out Eric Calderone - Duke Nukem meets metal .. thats proper as well

"so wrong yet so right"

Only a few will know what Im talking about lol :D

Wow, that advanced lighting makes a huge difference to the visuals. I get that Gearbox tried to slap everything together and release a finished product. But it seems like they cut out a lot of content that would have made the experience more enjoyable. That's a shame.

Nerfed due to consoles.. and not the first time it has happened.

-Foxtrot656d ago

Kind of amazing the difference a lighting engine makes

Number1TailzFan656d ago

Same, the AI could be pretty dumb but the bosses were fun. I thought the levels (mostly) got better later in the game too.

XiNatsuDragnel656d ago

Devs nerf a game man best quote I've ever heard.
