|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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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Maybe this isn't a bad game, but if you can stand outdated graphics, it's worth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.
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.
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.
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
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
|Guess I seem really critical but I mean all of these are favourites of mine... that I also wouldn't mind never playing again. Comix Zone needs more love though|
|dude vanquish ruled and genesis sonic is fun as hell|
rest are kinda bad yeah, cool list its certainly original
|man I agree sonic is fun as hell. It's just that I feel like if you've played the first sonic you can avoid most of the others|
|mirrors edge is sweet|
|1. Seems like a fun game|
2. I actually liked Bioshock 2, but yeah, it was because of its nods and similarities to the first one.
3. Never played it.
4. Pretty fun, but I agree. Not as good as the two before it.
5. I actually enjoy the first Uncharted more than the 3rd game.
6. Yeah, I like Oblivion more.
7. Never played it.
8. Pretty fun game
9. Really fun game for a metalhead, if you can get past some gameplay inconsistencies
|definitely a favourite of this gen for me. I hope a beefed-up sequel gets made but i don't think it'll happen|
|Uncharted was great at the time, especially for being a game that never really had enough time to truly push the capabilities of the console|
|I think if I had played it when it was first released, I'd be more appreciative of it. But going back to it made me feel cheated|
|Sweet list man, but Mirror's Edge is great, and that soundtrack by Solar Fields...lawd|
|sonic games are frustratingly unplayable|
|Stalker isn't shitty wtf|
|Clear Sky IS shitty. Shadow of Chernobyl is my favourite PC game of all time however|
|Ah its clear sky not the regular one|
yeah that one is pretty bad even with mods
|sonic adventure was always my fav but i just cant play it anymore. also Skyrim was better than Oblivion but Morrowind will forever reign supreme|
|Also, I'm assuming you're using bugs and what not to say what's a bad game?|
Almost all the games on this list are all fundamentally well made, so I wouldn't call them shitty even in a "shitty but i like it" way. There are tons of games out there that are broken to the core, THOSE are shitty games
|Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing is my favorite game |
|Not really bugged or broken games, no. I'd say more that a game feels unfinished (Comix Zone), doesn't live up to its potential (Mirror's Edge), is blatantly bad in certain aspects (Sonic), or let me down (Bioshock 2), etc. but ultimately had enough great qualities I feel fondly of them.|
|sonic 2, 3, and knuckles are all great ganes|
sa and sa2 are also great
|Depends on other factors too. Are we talking about the gameplay, the legacy, or how it has held up over time? Because Daggerfall was both amazing and pretty shitty. Amazing endless gameplay and possibly the largest explorable world ever made in a video game, but it was duly riddled with bugged quests, constant crashes and endless coding errors. Without its pioneering open-ended gameplay, we wouldnt have its successors Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim.|
|If you can play a game, recognize some aspect of it (gameplay, legacy, story, graphics, etc.) as being terrible or totally shit, but still love it as a whole, it belongs on this list. |
You've never seen a bad game until you've seen this
|Fiveleaves ahahaha, most winner game ever |
|Most of these games also actually received positive reviews, especially Vanquish and Skyrim, but regardless, it's a decent list, Bioshock 2 and Stalker are pretty underrated, I believe|
|"Age of Mythology may be the best RTS ever"
Starcraft Broodwar >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>any other RTS|
|@Rice303: You're Winner!!!|
|Mass Effect 2 was a huge dissapointment for me. |
I really missed the feeling that I was in a real universe, like when you could explore planets like the moon in the first game. Mass Effect 2 was 2 mainstream for me... more an ordinary shooter with roleplaying elements... btw the Stalker trilogy is my favorite games... dat atmosphere... so spooky and mystical...
|I think Mass Effect 3 was even more disappointing |
|I haven't played MS3. I love the story in both games but didn't have any interest in buying it. |

|UC1 is easily the worst one, though UC3 was also pretty disappointing|
|Mirror's Edge is so pretty. It made my eyes all googly the first time through. The next one must be longer, though.|
