The 8 Least Compelling Games of E3

Look, there were interesting-looking games at E3, for sure. Resident Evil 5, Fallout 3, Gears of War 2 -- these titles and others are looking exciting and fun. Some of them even look like they might change or advance the face of gaming in some minor way.

But for all of the intrigue and excitement, a bunch of games on the slate that got some major press at this event just don't do it for Crispy Gamer. So here, in reverse order, are their least compelling games of E3.

Someone is trying to get hits on their website. What better way to get hits, other than insulting Little Big Planet.

You watch, LBP bashing will be the next big thing. Good luck though, it's untouchable.

Bashing LBP is like punching puppies.

SeanScythe3737d ago

Fishy why are you approving this trash?

Fishy Fingers3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

Sorry, on reading further I see, I retract my approval.

MazzingerZ3737d ago

What a waste of time checking the link...

themyk3737d ago

i actually agree with everything he says. except for littlebigplanet.

game of the year

NO_PUDding3737d ago

The only reason this guy is WRONG... is because he hasn't seen anything yet.

I don't think he understands the diversity of the game.

Has everyone seen the 3 or 4 player co-op game escaping from poisonous gas? No? Well then people like that (who obviously had no interest in it anyway, so fair enough) can't comment on it being underwhelming in general.

And he assumes everyone wants to climb gential mountains. Well, I for one won't be. And most of the people intersted in this, seem liek they won't.

Let's see, you can count an agree from me, becuase I will be tryign my hardest to create an imaginative awesome level, but everyone else:


OgTheClever3736d ago

A very strong case could be made for both Spore and LittleBigPlanet being the most compelling games of E3.

I don't find LBP interesting (or compelling...) at all, I know I'm never going to spend my precious cash on it. But I can understand others do find it awesome, and I'm not gonna say it looks like it sucks because it doesn't, its just not my cup of tea. I'm not hating on it, I'm just saying that not everybody has the same idea of fun as you do.

What now to get about LBP? Its jammed full of awesome, who doesn't like awesome?

MK_Red3737d ago

Sadly some people don't like awesome :(
Seriously, WTF!? LBP is the game that even non-PS3 owners are loving. LBP RULES!

witchking3736d ago

I find nothing of interest in LBP. But then what I've seen of it looks tedious. I am leaving an open mind that there will be something in this that involves more than a mod community making up stuff.

I agree whole-heartedly with the sentiments on the Wii. The most I've done is play bowling with my kids. The rest of the wagglin' blows mighty chunks. Can we just stop considering Nintendo as being included in the game universe at this point? I mean, we don't comment on Bejeweled, right? That's basically what they have created: a box for playing crap like Bejeweled.

I completely agree with his comments on the Sonic RPG. Bioware or not, that game will suck. Spore will bore. Lego Batman could be interesting just to see who all the unlocks are, but I agree that it'll be lacking in story.

Fighting games are a dime a dozen these days, and with Soul Calibur IV likely to be a kick-a$$ game, who needs anything else?

Halo Wars, if it ever comes out, will be a struggle due to the console controls of an RTS.

And Splinter Cell wasn't even really at E3, so I'm not sure how it could be any less compelling than being almost non-existent.

I'd say the two that were meant to start a flame war were Spore and LBP, two games which have become Internet darlings... without anyone having played them extensively yet.

Who knows? They might all rock. Then again, given that they haven't seen the light of day yet, they might all suck.

Real Gambler3737d ago

Number one and two are LBP and Spore!

I guess CounterStrike and Unreal Tournament are likely bad games since it's user created content that make them going, and going, and going!

Sure 99.9% of the user content is not that good, but when 1,000,000 people get at it, that 0.1% is a lot of great user created stuff.

Both games will make him eat his words.

slugg3737d ago

I think he is right on with LBP. Its a prettied-up, fake 3-d sidescroller. Basically the same as Donkey Kong Country on the Super Nintendo. Whoo ho, you can play co-op and make your own levels. I predict that user created levels will show up in three main forms: dirty picture recreations, advertising for favorite... somethings, and impossible hard just for the hell of it. No, doesn't sound fun to me either. Should be a PSN game if anything.

keops33737d ago

only for physics experimentation it is a extremely endless game plus multiplayer fun and the premade 50 lvls 10/10 and add infinite crazy levels from all the world
a must buy but some people only see the cute aspect and this dont work in other style

poopsack3737d ago

you seem to be confused, this game isnt gonna be released to the live community.

keops33737d ago

??? are you trying to say somthing?
at least i dont put a picture of s*it in other s*it called xbox 360(compered with the ps3)

mistertwoturbo3736d ago

Wasn't LBP supposed to be a PSN/blu-ray game anyway?

Anyways, people are jumping on the "I hate" bandwagon too easily now.

Weird, I felt Gears 2 looked least compelling. More Winback/Kill.Switch gameplay with purdy visuals. Meh, to each his own.
