Favourite Shitty Games

Everyone's talking about amazing games they consider favourites. So here's a bunch of games that I know are bad but I still love
1Anthrax
Among The Living


Comix Zone - A game released in 1995 that should've been released in 1988. Creative art design and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-esque humour, this game should rock. But extreme difficulty, repetition, bad graphics (but good art), and limited replay value make it hard to love. I think it's quirky enough to earn a place in the best bad games, but overall can't compete with the classics.
2Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago


Bioshock 2 - Remember how great Rapture was in the first game? All those fantastic characters who pretty much all died? The tense, scary moments? Just forget those when returning to the ruined metropolis. This is a love/hate game, and most of the love comes from the first game and its many references. I still love it though, since it continued the legacy of Bioshock, albeit in a sloppy, boring, unfinished fashion.
3Neurosis
Through Silver In Blood


STALKER: Clear Sky - Even today it's still majorly buggy, broken, poorly translated, lacking a good story, and you need an expensive rig to run it. The game took the amazing legacy of STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, and dumped the awesome atmosphere. Kind of like "diet STALKER". But being a diehard fan of the series I still bought this and enjoyed it for many hours.
4Bjork
Debut


Age of Empires III - Notice how most of these are sequels? Age of Empires II was amazing, and Age of Mythology may be the best RTS ever. So enter AoE III, taking place in the ever fascinating colonial period. Great graphics and classic gameplay make this a solid entry in the series, but for some reason, I never felt sucked in as much as with the other AoE games.
5Deftones
White Pony


Uncharted - I played Uncharted 2 first, which is definitely one of this generation's greatest games ever. But Uncharted 1 is clunky, stupid, and underwhelming. Even the story is nowhere near as good as 2 or 3's, which both have a heavy amount of cheese belonging in a Michael Bay film. Nevertheless it revived a stagnant genre and paved the way for Uncharted 2 and the Tomb Raider reboot. Plus there's still a few "whoa" moments.
6Eluveitie
Slania


The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim - it can't hold a candle to Morrowind, Oblivion, or Fallout 3. But thanks to the endless quests, great combat, and awesome graphics, I kept coming back. There did, however, come a point where I just didn't give a shit. Maybe this isn't a bad game, but if you can stand outdated graphics, it's worth playing older incarnations instead.
7Boris
Akuma No Uta


Vanquish - A Japanese game that was absolutely shit in every department besides graphics and gameplay. The easiest way to describe it would be the video game equivalent of Pacific Rim. So dumb, but so cool. If you've played the demo, you've played the whole game. Still bought it and played it for days, though.
8MF Doom
Operation: Doomsday


Mirror's Edge - I actually consider Mirror's Edge an amazing game. But the problem is how limited it is. The idea of parkour crime fighting is so weird, but it was brought to life incredibly well in this game. The issue lies with the fact that the game is essentially a giant hallway shooter in an obstacle course, which can be completed in four hours. This game could be amazing if it was an open world action game, gave you moral and gameplay options, and had a non-shite story. Another game that I played through to the end, loved for many reasons, and then ditched. Not bad by any means, but seriously didn't fulfil it's potential.
9Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath


Brutal Legend - The concept is golden. How could Jack Black and a slew of heavy metal artists fail? Well, they didn't. The game was just too lacking in gameplay to succeed. I consider it one of the most creative games made in a long time
10Weezer
The Blue Album


Any Genesis-era Sonic game - We all love Sonic. But it's a shitty game, let's face it. As repetitious as 80s and 90s games were, most had more variety than Sonic, a game which lets you run across the screen until you feel sick. I still play it to this day, but at the same time, it definitely doesn't hold up like many Mario or Zelda titles.
