There are some games that excel way above the rest and there are some that no one buys and falls into lists like these. We give you 5 PlayStation 3 games that you should never even think about buying.
Title changed to "5 Games Not To Buy In 2009".
Anyone even heard of #1 before? I definitely haven't.
I have, I think it has a score of like 18/100 on metacritic or something like that. Anyway, terminator from what I've heard is a pretty good game, but I haven't played it myself.
really? from what i heard terminator can be completed in about 4 hours and has terrible glitches/ graphical glitches (watch the comparison video's to see that both versions of the game are terrible lol)
I'm huge Terminator fan, and by huge I don't mean Gabe-Newell-Huge, but Terminator Salvation game is terrible. I had to reinstall it three times in order to get it work, weapons feel like ASG, terminators look a bit plastic and game is short as hell. Not worth more than 15$ imo.
The title is a bit misleading. All those titles are also available on the 360.
THESE ARE ALL MULTIPLATFORM TITLES AND NOT PS3 EXCLUSIVE. Am I missing something here or what?
Agreed this could also be a not to buy for 360 category. What more proof do we need that 360 fanboys are scared of PS3's exclusive games catalogue than this?
I am sure they play bad over in xbox land too. But, then again, maybe they have games worse than these.
I noticed it didn't say exclusives and then checked it out and low and behold, not a single ps3 exclusive in the list. Good job with the BS title. Are they saying these games are okay on the 360 or what? Either way, was never interested in any of these titles to begin with.
I'm a firm believer in exclusives (for any system) over mutlis. Especially with games costing around $70 after tax (Canadian), I can't be slinging around cash on trash games. Only mutli that I bought NEW this year was Batman: AA, only on account of it being $40, and having such rave reviews (but journalists have their heads so far up their asses and get so high on hype/ money/ marketing this gen, that you can never fully trust their opinions). For everything else, it's the bargain bin or a used copy. Final Fantasy and Darksiders come to mind as 2010 discount purchases. As good as these games could be (well, FFXIII looks less appealing the more I see of it), I just can't risk the buyer's remorse with so many great exclusives coming out over the next 12 months that are more worthy of my dollars.
I noticed none were exclusives either so the title's totally misleading and should include either "multi plats" or PS360 in there for more accuracy. Cannot agee about FF13 OR Darksiders, at least not yet, as FF13 will prolly be a good game even if it can't push the PS3(or 360 for that matter) as hard as it would've ad it been exclusive still and Darksiders has really started to look much better after a "meh" kind of start. It's looking way more varied and interesting than the basic H/S game I'd imagined so the action game I'm doubing is Dante's Inferno which just seems to be a very naked GOW rip off-which neither I nor Kratos will be impressed with-hope I'm wrong, mind, as the Dead Space team did a fine job last time out AND that was a new IP as well. I think that FF13 and Daeksiders might surprise you though fella-even if FF13 can't hope to reach the heights it once might've done SE could still pull something out of the bag for one of it's flagship franchises.
This is trash, these are all multiplatform
I dont think the author ment exclusives. Just on the PS3 in general. And i pretty much agree with the listed games. Although Terminator might have some 'fun factor' in there somewhere. Plus, I dont think any exclusives this year were disappointments or bad enough not to say dont buy em
5. Shadow complex 4. Flopza 3 3. Halo ODST 2. oops ran out of games.
complete garbage across the board
please don't be a retard, the author has not mentioned the 360 at all, so if you were to disagree with the author;s list then you shouldd make one of your own, one that happen to be about ps3 games. and it should look like this: 1)white knight chronicles (even japan didn't want this game!!!) 2)killzone 2 (even the hype didn't help, stats show most of n4g didnt buy this game!!!) 3)MAG (this is for future buyers, it's not that bad, it's just not that good.) 4)Infamous (whatever it did prototype did better, buy prototype, it's way crazier and fun at that.) 5)ummm, there just aren't enough exclusives to finish this list...so maybe by next year. btw, I am not here to argue or point fingers or call people names (idiot)....but seriously, this has nothing to do with the 360, let's be fair and keep it out of this.
sry bot, but WKC sold more than every xbox game ALONE, LOL how hard u can fail dude?
all multiplats, the worthy ones and massive potential GotYs are PS3 exclusives as always
Errr. thats "Halo STD" El Botto..
lol @ da720izcumin n El botto. those were the 2 saddest list i've seen
Not sure why he choose to make it a PlayStation list when they're all multiplatform games. But he's right, I wouldnt play any of them.
Ive heard it was pretty good but only like 5 hours long. So maybe when it´s down at 20$ i can pick it up..
It's an easy platinum.
A guy on my friends list just unlocked the Platinum Trophy in less than 8 hours.(Terminator Salvation) If you can unlock the Platinum Trophy in less than 8 hours, then you know you could probably run through a single play through in about 2-4 hours.
there should be a warning sign on the box, saying "not for entertainment purposes"
I have played terminator and it's by no means a terrible game at all and while it is short there are far worse games.
youremgn.com See, we all can make lists! Huzzah.
This came right after my Top 5 Exclusives to buy list :-/
they didnt say 5 ps3 exclusive games they said ps3 games as in games you can polay on ps3..yea i know they should of been more clear cause all these games are multiplat..the #1 gamei never even heard of..but its funny cause not 1 exclusive is up there cause those are the games to get...TREY 4 LIFE!!!!!!!!
WHAT ARE YOU SAYING????
Dude... wtf ?
top 5 games not to buy!
lol i got the platinum in less than 4hours, you just need to complete it on hard & that was easy anyway. it was a good game but very short and easy, i rented it & i think every1 else who wants it should just rent it aswell
Good idea iv always wanted a platinum too lazy to get most of them but if all i got to do is beat it on hard that's easy, You Are Terminated.
But they are better on 360 right?...of course!!! all multi-plats are!!!.../facepalm
Wow..could the title be any more biased? -_- Pathetic.
@Skv007 What are you talking about? The games are the same regardless of what platform they are on..that's kinda the whole point of them being MULTIPLATFORM. The author is just being biased towards the 360.
ok, go re-read my comment. I was replying to No. 1 who said these are all multi-plats. I was saying that multi-plats are a part of the ps3 library, so they have a legit reason to be on the list. My point is EXACTLY what your point is. The article is solely for ps3, so it doesnt care whether the game is on 360 or not. Its talking about the ps3 game library alone. You must have read my comment with fanboy googles, please take them off. You dont need them to read my comments ^_^
5 games not to buy, Period
Why that game?? I liked the first one >.>
Review scores across the board were all low, which makes these games, don't buys or bargain bin games, regardless of what console its on.
rented to play, it was so bad i played it out of spite. It is easiely the best trophy/achievement booster game. 12 gold trophies, 10 to complete chapters, 2 for play on med and hard. so one play through on hard, which is not hard at all. and you have every trophy/achievement. cover system was not horrible. but the rest blew chunks.
When the price drops below $20 I'm going to get it. I know it's supposed to be a horrible game, but I love the genre. But I agree, this should have just been "Five games to avoid in 2009" or something. None of the PS3 exclusives this year were bad games. Well, no PS3 exclusives have been bad ever. With the exception of a few PSN titles.
The title for this article is wrong. should be something like '5 Multiplatform games not to buy in 2009. because all them games r for the 360 and PC aswell
Fully agree. I have no idea why he named the PS3 specifically. I think it was just to get as manny hits as possible since the title hints to PS3 exclusive games.
stop with the %&@#$ng top 5 lists!!!!!!!!
Use adblock or NoScript if you view the site. View trojan attempts through their ads.
Why, the PS3? These games are just as bad on the xbox 360.
wow way to use flaimbate for hits.
Looks like the gaming press is all about flamebaits4hits these days. Anyway, I didn't check the website, they don't get my hit and don't generate revenue per ad "impressions". I think even the games that are widely recognized as "terrible" might actually be good games or at least fun for some people. And the reverse is also true; just look at the Halo franchise.
GOTY worthy list . . Dot
this is the worst list article I have ever read. ever. I usually enjoy them, but not one when there's like two damn sentences an entry across five games.
Should have just said "5 GAMES to AVOID in 2009....and beyond" They aren't "PS3 games"...but are all multiplatform....and they are all known to be garbage anyway. There was no reason for this article to be WRITTEN, let alone APPROVED for N4G.
are u serious? this is a worthless article all these titles are obvious not buys we dont need a list for ppl to tell us not to buy these games
but the games are on the 360 as well
The PS3 game lineup for late 2009 is trash anyway,I do all my buying on the 360 btw...every ps3 game is worthless for 2009
I'm sorry, by that standard there hasnt been a game worth buying on 360 since Mass effect. So, how the hell are you buying anything on ur 360? all of em are trash if u called the ps3's 09 line up trash.
maDOUCHEa is a big fat FAIL when it comes to writing about anything pertaining to videogames. You should have been able to tell that the author was a complete moron when he said that "Terminator Salvation was an amazing movie". Yah, if you're six years old.
damn they hatin on sony, they knew what they was writing the first time,now the wanna update with the right title.
Should this be "Games Not To Buy?" -_- less I check all the games that are listed are on 360. Think this person just trying to tick someone off or couldn't come up with something better to write.
