Default Worst / most dissapointing games ever?

Ok not entirely fitting in the favourite oldies ection. but it fits nicely next to the ''best games ever'' thread.

So tell me..which games did you hate the most??

for me:
Manhunt (let's make a game's concept so ''sick'' people will buy it for the controversy, not knowing the game as a whole is one big letdown)

I can't think of others at the moment

A pretty ordinary game I once played was aptly called The Last Resort. Only played it for ten minutes then put it back into its box where it stayed ever since. It just seemed pointless and boring. Perhaps if I gave it more of a chance it might have improved as it featured the voices of Cher, Christopher Reeve, James Belushi and Joe Perry (of Aerosmith) and was produced by Rober De Niro. Impressed by my memory? ;-)

Btw, could be abandonware now.

The worst game I've heard of but never actually played was Carmagedon. Points for running people over....? Tonz of fun.

Well, I guess, for me it's Betrayal at Antara. I bought it in hope of continued story that's as good as the one in Betrayal at Krondor and same fun, but what I got then had, aside from the control interface, nothing to do with the first part. After I saw that (pardon) stupid face of that boy that we resqued from the gargoyle in the beginning, I put this game away and sworn to never play it again... It's my biggest disappointment so far.

Funny enough, the game was quite enjoyable, and it still to this day has the best car physics engine that I've played. 90% of the games out there are about killing people in one way or another so why not drive over them :twisted: . Seriously though, the game was fun.

My worst game, well I don't really have a worst one, but the game that comes to mind is Deus Ex 2. I didn't like it much, and was really dissapointed where it took the series.

There exist's bad games? :shock:


Hmm... *thinks hard*

Sorry... I can't think of a single game that I have not completed after getting it :?

Maybe it's just me... I simply love games.
Manhunt is on my shelf, and I have indeed played it through. The game is freaky and scary, and I play it when I want to be frightened.
Carmageddon was also great fun, as Mika said the driving in this game is excellent!
Enter the Matrix a nice, good and clean game that features an, till now, unique way of gameplay. The game is meant as a link between you and the movie. It also features an fun hacking program.

As for the others.. I haven't played them, but if I did I would probably like them as well.

Sorry for not being able to hate a game

clean game?
it was full of bugs!
you'd fall through walls
the effects at some points were just soo ugly they would have better just deleted it.
Most scenes didn't have that many objects in them... just clean hallways and stuff like that.
like in the sewers... that was just a huge textured cube with ladders and walkways in it.
and you didn't even have time often to protect the people you ahd to protect... thats not clean!
