Barricaded Gunman: Nice job. I only got as far as the "hate" part. After a completely satisfying end to Ezio in the previous title, I looked forward to AC3 for months. But after 3 or 4 nights of climbing trees in the middle of nowhere and setting rabbit snares, I decided enough was enough.
yukichigai: I'd argue it brought the first-person shooter genre to the attention of the console gamer crowd.
TheHopeDiamond: [i.ebayimg.com image 230x300]FARK. YOU. SPACE SHUTTLE. Only game I ever returned.
sprawl15: because lots of old games people love have dated gameplay
Scrotastic Method: [upload.wikimedia.org image 260x366]I expected "bad," in the way that Adult Swim cartoons were "bad" ten years ago. I expected insanity, dicking with the player, chaos, and cheap animation. You know, the kind of awesome "bad" that would work for Aqua Teen.Instead it's just really bad. Honest bad. This game was made in Estonia or something (really) and totally shows it. Just a complete piece of crap.The only good thing about it was Scott Van Pelt is the golf announcer.
IS AN A-HOLE!!!
Egoy3k: Chronotrigger was good.SMB3 was goodMario Cart 64 was good.
Curt Blizzah: [diehardgamefan.com image 200x275]As an 8 year old, I had no idea what the hell this game was about. We hated it.
Jethro74: Am I really the first one to mention this abomination? I bought, played it for 6 minutes and then returned it.
triptheory: Jethro74: Am I really the first one to mention this abomination? I bought, played it for 6 minutes and then returned it.3 pages, over 200 comments and someone FINALLY admitted to it.I think you were the first because no one else wants to admit to it.
Uncle Tractor: This game has dated gameplay ...
NicktheSmoker: Confabulat: Egoy3k: Chronotrigger was good.SMB3 was goodMario Cart 64 was good.No one ever said they weren't, and they all get a ton of love to this day. Why are you hung up on Goldeneye? Ask around and most gamers of that time will tell you fond stories of it. So you didn't play it because it was beneath you, well look how special you were in the early 90s. The vast majority of gamers have different memories, and we're not all wrong.Goldeneye on 64 was fun as hell. All my friends played 4 player mode running around throwing mines or whatever it was at each other for hours. Loved that game. Waveracer 64 was awesome too. Only game I've played to this day that I play play with one hand, and smoke a cig with the other lol.
NicktheSmoker: AC4 rocks though.
FlashHarry: NicktheSmoker: AC4 rocks though.not the same character?
Confabulat: IngramValiant: DragonDeadite: Tommy Moo: [upload.wikimedia.org image 256x316]Most recently played Metro: Last Light... yeah... horrible game there too.[chan.catiewayne.com image 455x325]/hot slashesMetro: Last Light is really pretty awesome. I've only gotten about halfway through though as it does the one thing in gaming I hate nearly as much as escort missions: The "stand here and fight off waves of bad guys for X amount of time until the boat/elevator/train arrives to take you to the next area" nightmare. I HATE those as I'm sure to die 15 times trying to figure out the proper way to not panic while being attacked on all sides and not gobbling up all my medkits in the first 10 seconds. Grr I hate that!I hope I get past it though and don't give up because it really is a pretty cool game and I can't stand it when I miss half a game because of one stupid point where the designers just decided to make life miserable for the gamer.
sprawl15: also a lot of the game is sailing around and blowing shiat up which is pretty damn fun (though the worst parts by far are when it pulls you back to the assassin's creed-y stuff).
Darth_Lukecash: [upload.wikimedia.org image 217x300]As an 8th grader, I saved up my chore money, gift money for months to get this.Biggest load of suck ever.
FuryOfFirestorm: Curt Blizzah: [diehardgamefan.com image 200x275]As an 8 year old, I had no idea what the hell this game was about. We hated it.It was basically part of a contest planned to be spread over four games, each packaged with a comic that to be used to find clues which you then turned in to win some expensive prize. Then the 4 grand prize winners were to compete to win the ultimate Grand Prize: A jeweled sword worth $50,000. The first two games did well, but due to the Great Video Game Crash of 1983, the third game's contest was cancelled, and the fourth game was never made. The world story is fully explained here on Wikipedia
nmrsnr: nmrsnr: It was barely a game, and you had to be a farking actual surgeon to get the goddamn appendix out (which I never successfully did).Let's try that again with a picture:[www.dosbox.com image 320x200]
lousyskater: [nextgengamingblog.com image 580x362]I haven't pre-ordered a game since.
wraith95: Not counting steam games I've paid like 2 dollars for: Final Fantasy 13. Some people apparently like it, but the combat system is one of the worst ideas I've ever encountered and that might be the least of it's sins.I have to also mention one of the best games I've purchased recently: Risk of Rain. It's ten bucks and it's awesome. I've got 45 hours sunk into it and I'm not bored yet. It probably won't reach skyrim levels of playtime for me but we'll see. Check it out, if you like let's plays ShinyRawrquaza on youtube has some good ones.

0100010: [upload.wikimedia.org image 328x500]I'm surprised nobody else mentioned this one yet. This has to be the worst released game I've seen, apart from the current status of Godus. Its only positive was that it actually loaded and ran after install. The only saving grace to the whole fiasco is that they did eventually release a mostly working version and gave out free copies of the sequel/finished expansion to anyone that bought the original.
rlandrum: Phantasmagoria. "The Cellar Beckons You!"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantasmagoria_(video_game)
FlashHarry: sprawl15: also a lot of the game is sailing around and blowing shiat up which is pretty damn fun (though the worst parts by far are when it pulls you back to the assassin's creed-y stuff).cool. and i hate it when they do the whole modern-day 'desmond' stuff. the best part of AC is wandering around period-correct cities and killing people!
Meliorist: Nobody has mentioned Diablo 3 yet?
The Slush: Remembered another:
Skyfrog: Meliorist: Nobody has mentioned Diablo 3 yet?Diablo III is the only game I have ever demanded a refund for, though to their credit Blizzard did give me one no questions asked.
hardinparamedic: sat1va: Mechwarrior OnlineMechwarrior Online killed pre-ordering anything for me. I jumped on that bandwagon when it was first announced, bought a gold-level collectors edition, and then when I logged in and realized they released a five percent finished polished turd with worse Netcode than Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance, I felt cheated.
legion_of_doo: Skyfrog: Meliorist: Nobody has mentioned Diablo 3 yet?Diablo III is the only game I have ever demanded a refund for, though to their credit Blizzard did give me one no questions asked.Starcraft 2 wasnt a huge flashing warning sign?
FuryOfFirestorm: Remember that this is EA that's making this, so expect this game to have a f*ckton of microtransactions. They are going to milk that cow until the udders squirt blood and pus.
