unsure, i own quite a lot of stinkers i’m sure
but one i do remember leaving a sour taste in my mouth was Homefront, pretty sure i never even managed to endure that sludge to completion. But don’t know if it actually qualifies as “the worst” i own/played
Sadly enough, for now I have to go with LEGO® The Hobbit™. Yeah, I know, it was free. Still, the controls make it painful, the game’s not fun but boring, and overall the experience is the most dull and unpolished I’ve seen from LEGO for many years.
Granted, I don’t play that much of LEGO games, and don’t play them on PC at all. But I’ve just reread There and Back Again and The Lord of The Rings, and desperately wanted more of Tolkien’s magic. Didn’t expect much from a LEGO game, but it just feels painful to play. Wouldn’t like it if I was a kid. I remember dumping the games I didn’t enjoy playing, and launching the ones with nice gameplay \ play feeling instead, even if it was 5th or 10th time.
This was a gift of a friend to me, to basically have a laugh at me:
I’m not exactly informed about the standards on the pseudo-pedophilia and pseudo-zoophilia market since the dawn of owning child-porn in Japan around a decade ago BUT HOLY SHIT HOW INSULTING CAN SOMETHING BE JUST FOR THE SAKE OF BEING TERRIBLY BAD, not many times I felt so insulted in my life and certainly never just because someone suggested that piece of rooten crap can be called art or even just entertaintment. I felt anger, for all the horrible things this implies and for how lazy and stupid it was.
I erased the game from my library with the blessing of my friend after trying it for about 22 minutes or so.
Not sure what the actual #1 worst would be, but X-COM Enforcer is by far one of the most insulting. It’s Infogrames running the X-COM name into the ground with a barely functional and shallow MDK wannabe. It has absolutely nothing in common with X-COM, even down to the enemy design and characters, and the story is pathetic. The game killed X-COM. That’s really all you need to hear. (notice the hyphen in the name, XCOM by Firaxis is its own thing and unlike Infogrames they’re actually putting effort into their games)
There’s plenty of other moments I’ve had where I’ve gone “This game sucked!”, but most of them are just either boring or a huge letdown. Alone in the Dark came pretty close to this list as well, Just Cause 3 survived on the merit of having one or two similarities with its infinitely superior predecessor JC2.
I’ll say Deathgarden for now, I played it on launch week they had it free for a week (it was like a free weekend but for the full week instead) and it had multiple problems one being optimization and another was controls and the OP-ness of certain characters.
Yeah, i totally get it. I do it all the time too. So i’m gonna turn it around towards myself and mention my favorite torture ‘software’. I usually have difficulty deeming something truly awful and not just disliking it for not being my jam. But this game is undeniably terrible.
Blood of the Werewolf is an action platformer, (with over a hundred achievements)that fails both of its genres. The platforming and run n’ gun gameplay is stiff, unlike the good type of stiff you get from other retro style platformers like: Volgarr the Viking and Mercenary Kings.
For the Most part my only gripe, but i keep returning to it every year, even though I’ve actually finished it.
After recently finding out and about of the general story themes, I’ve decided i’m gonna stay way the fu#k back from that thing. Maybe two will be good though. The dynamic of the brothers seems a lot better.
Natural Selection 2. I think this may be part of how I was introduced to the game. I played maybe 5 mins of a round before I quit. I think part of the problem was I was attempting to play with a friend and they didn’t wait for me to run the tutorial, etc before dropping us into a multiplayer match. After being basically straight out murdered, I said, nope, not for me.
If we are going for something I didn’t rush, I’d say Aura Kingdom for being extremely boring. Like, you can afk run to your next quest. wasn’t a particularly interested in that.
