Congratulations to Yi-Long, our second day winner!
On the third day, the question we have for you is "What was the worst game you've ever played and what made it the worst game for you?"
For me, I could be cheeky and say Loki, but the truth is that the game was so broken that I've never been able to play it for more than a minute. So, I'm going to be almost as cheeky and say Max Payne 3.
NOW, WAIT WAIT WAIT! It's not because it's a bad game. At least not what I've been able to play of it. Far from it. The reason it is the worst I've ever played is actually because it was enjoyable... but I've never been able to finish it because my save files seem cursed. I've owned this game on both PC and PS3. The furthest I've been able to get into the game before my save file got wiped (and repeatedly so) was the graveyard flashback mission. On PC, I've rarely been able to get past the Stadium mission. I've tried copying out save files, but it ends up the same.
So, I sat there, thoroughly involved in this game, hoping to get through the story in which I am invested. And, then, nothing. Shoot. Let me try again. I feel myself trying to push through the parts I've already experienced, wanting to get to a new point. And then, gone. And, try again. After the third, I gave up. A year later, I tried again on PC, but the system was such a tease and I believe it just wasn't meant to be.
But, it was the worst experience I've had in the game because I know a bad game and I can quit it, but when a game isn't bad and I can't finish it after multiple attempts due to things outside of my control? It becomes so much more frustrating and sits with you for years."
