The 5 Worst Game Concepts of the Holiday Season

"Almost as a wink-and-nod to EGM's Seanbaby, I thought it would be worth taking a look at some of the crappiest game concepts coming out this holiday season. If you haven't taken a look at the list of garbage coming down the pipeline between now and this year's high holy days, you need to. Now that all the "best" games are out, all the crap seems to want to ride the wave behind them.

In no particular order (because they all look equally bad, except for maybe the first one…that's just pathetic), I offer you the 5 crappiest looking games of the holiday season."

Personally, I think Champion Foosball could work. I mean the Wiimote could definitely simulate the act of playing foosball. It's probably going to be terrible. I want to play Redneck Jamboree HHAHAA, that seems so wrong.

Dude, let's be serious... No it's not going to be good. I mean, yeah, technically it could work on the Wii but you know it won't.

I actually think that SafeCracker game could be interesting. It's obviously not going to be, but it's an interesting concept that could go well with the Wiimote's motion sensing. It has a totally ridiculous concept and plot, but it could be fun if the puzzles are done right. I mean they made a game out of only doing surgery, and that turned out pretty good.

The others just look like terrible ideas in general.

"Accessible game mechanics enable anyone to grow the longest fingernails ever seen"

How is that even possible. How do you simulate that in a game without making it as long and boring as the actual process of growing your nails a few meters long.

That Redneck game looks really offensive...but hilarious.

That Ski and shoot thing is so stupid. I remember I saw that on TV once. They just ski down, shoot at a shooting range, then ski more. It makes no sense. It's so random.

It's also cross country skiing, which is the least fun type. You probably just move your hands back and forth to simulate pushing yourself forward. It sounds like a nightmare.

The sport barely warrants a small mini-game on any Olympic sports title (all of which I hate anyway). Why they decided to make a whole game around it, I can't imagine.

I nominate Legendary...

I had a feeling it was going to be bad, but not THAT bad.

Amadeo3695d ago

So, I've argued with someone about the viability of Championship Foosball. Alright...I could see how it could be fun for the first like 5 games. But after that, I just don't see myself having that much enjoyment. I understand why Wii Bowling is fun. You're not at an alley or something. Or at a tennis court for Wii Tennis. But foosball? Really? Just go play the damn game. It's not like you can't have a foosball table in your house.
