This thread was a smashing success last time.
About a month ago I read this and another few articles about how hating things like movies or games or music or bands is such a waste of time and effort. I couldn't help but agree. Like, it's still fine to think a game is badly made, or that x part of y game was sucky, but if you all-out hate a game, and let that hate define it for you, you're just bothering yourself.Never hate a movie. Never, under any circumstances, hate a movie. It won't help you and it's a waste of time. There's plenty of reasons to not to like a movie. But if you hate them? Meaning if let them bother you? Then they'll do nothing but bother you. Who wants to be bothered? There's so many better things to do with movies... Bad things can be so much more interesting than just bad. You can learn so much about the craft from bad movies. Bad movies teach you what not to do and what to correct in your process and that's way more helpful. Hating movies closes you off to stuff that seems like whatever you hate. Or stuff by the same guy. And who knows? That other stuff could be awesome. Some of my favorite filmmakers made bad movies. It won't help you. It just won't. It stops your development right in its tracks, okay? I mean like everything and I ain't trying to get you to be like ****ing me or anything. I'm just saying I think it's better for you. And it makes me way, way happier. Never hate a movie. They're gifts. Every ****ing one of em.
Maybe a good idea would be to post why you think a game is bad and what that taught you. Like how this game taught me to not resolve the final battle with a quicktime event, or how this game taught me not to put a loading screen 6 seconds after the last one, or how this game taught me where not to put long pieces of dialogue/cutscenes or how this game taught me how to not do a tutorial.
Pokemon Dash, while not a bad game, taught me to NOT have a mechanic that makes the player constantly swipe the screen to move. It can seriously mess up your DS if you play too much or too rough.
Final Fantasy XIII is my choice.
This could have been worded so much better. "Worst Game Ever" is synonymous with "Insert Flame War Here."
Anyway, my choice is SimCity for having the worst launch of all time. Its only redeeming factor is that it took down EA's CEO.

Do you mean the worst game I've played or the worst game I've seen?
Well, the worst game I've played was Smarty Pants for the Wii. All you do is just answer some questions. And that's it. It was also a launch title for the Wii... Yeah...
I don't want to say the worst game I've seen...

I remember buying a game called The World Ends With You. Now I know about a thousand people who SWEAR by this game, but to tell you the truth, I hated it. The gameplay was confusing and obnoxious, the characters were unlikeable, and I felt the game tried too hard to be cool and fun. And I've said this elsewhere, and it's legions of TWEWY fans telling me to either give it another chance or to go to ****(But rarely both). But no matter how many times I play it, I just can't get into it, or even stand playing the game.
...But even then, The World Ends With You is STILL a god compared to Earthbound. Once again, people swear by this game, and every time I say I don't like it, it's legions of fans telling me to either give it another try or die(But again, rarely both). Once again, every time I play it, I cannot put up with the game. The setting is completely dumb, the sound quality is wretched, the humor is about as funny as Peter Griffin passing gas in my face for 3 hours, the graphics were putrid(And I swear, every time I say this, legions tell me "Oh, but they were good for their time." ...No, not even for their time.) and to top it all off, the gameplay was so shallow and boring that it makes me wonder why the game is so popular.
...Have you played Call of Duty before, Unova? It's quite a good game, and IGN like it too as they give it good ratings, so it must be really good. You can unlock so many different thigns in it and it has quite a lot of an RPG element to it for a shooter, and the campaign is tense as! A lot of people in OVGD will defend Minesweeper to the death, saying that it was the true innovation, but I'm one of the people on the call of Duty side of things.
I love Call of Duty™, Rezzo! The campaign is incredible, and provides many more hours of entertainment than inferior ripoffs like Bio Shock and Deus Ex and the Human Revolution. I'm glad that Infinity Ward is pushing the world of gaming forward with new innovative games and the inferior hacks like Minesweeper are being left behind. After all, if Minesweeper was so good, why isn't there a Minesweeper 2?
Do you mean worse game or do you mean games we hate. Those two phrases can mean different things. I don't hate games because they are "bad" I hate them for being dissapointments.
Possibly the best example is Turtles in Time Reshelled. The original game was pretty fun, but the new game engine made everything feel all wonky. It's not really a bad game, but they somehow managed to make it worse than the original.
Watch me tumble stuff:
Any super hero game published by Activison.
Wario: Master of disguise
Never liked it, the stylus feature was just tedious to play. Wish they continue the Wario Land series.
The War Z. What a scam that was.

Dark Pit isn't that bad of an inclusion, you'll get over it trust me.
I have played tons of bad games, but bad games are not worth hating. They're forgettable. For example Elemental: War of Magic was literally unplayable upon release, and one of the ugliest and most broken games I've ever played. Is it worth hating? Absolutely not.
The only game I actively dislike is Dragon Age 2, which is not a bad game per se. I dislike it because it was the sequel of what was in my opinion one of the best games of its generation, and it was a huge disappointment. It also marked the start of Bioware going to ****, which is quite sad.
Also RJ Fighter, have you played The Secret World?
