    The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.....it seems most of you were smart enough to stay away from this one otherwise it would be on a lot more of your lists

    Not because I think it's bad, just the multiplayer aspect of it is utterly frustrating.

    I commonly find maps with either one person who progresses slowly and poorly, making me do all the work, or I find a 70% occupied map with people who have screwed up their city and will quit before anything gets completed.

    The premise was sound but the human factor was never taken into account, making the multiplayer unfulfilling sometimes or madly frustrating other times.

    Then there is the size if the cities in comparison to the map, and forbidding the players the opportunity to have total control over a map. In addition, the lack of any customisation to the maps is a dreadful omission.

    The difficultiy has been set way too low. You can get 100,000 tax payers too quickly and from there the millions pour in, defeating any further effort and making the small size of the maps/cities even more frustrating.

    Lovely design of user interface and viewing filters, make no mistake, but again due the actual workspace you are presented with it annoys players who are so limited.

    They essentially make you feel like a god, but whose power range is too dependant on invisible walls and disgruntled whims of other deities.

    sim ****ty

    It's been proven by now that a) what EA claimed as "mmo" aspects was just a simple online DRM and b) It's not really a simulation, just something designed to create the illusion of being one

    Without a doubt my vote goes to Call of Duty: Ghosts.

    That is one bad game. Never mind the performance issues or the uncontrolled cheating, it's the utter contempt with which the developer has treated the loyal customer base and the lies they told about the multiplayer server set-up that really digs the deep grave that Ghosts should be pushed back into.

    The last cool Need for Speed was High Stakes/Road Challenge.

    I wish they made an Android version of either NFS 3 or 4.

    imo the last good nfs game was hot pursuit in 1998. The best in the series was the original 1995 game, then hot pursuit, then most wanted. all the other games sucked massive balls. can't believe people still have hope in this pointless series. you've been had.

    yeah, now I've experienced the puzzles and exploration of AC4 I'm gonna give prize to flat chested tomb raider, hell I had to keep from the upgrades so they wouldn't cover her butt, whatever.

    tressFX was nice but I'd so much rather it in a game like injustice.

    well, they're completely different from the traditional NFS mold. They're good games in their own right, fun simcades and I'm sure pCARS will follow the tradition. As far as NFS games go, they've been dead to me after the 90s, pretty much.

    Total War: Rome II

    It's the only game of 2013 that I refused to buy as a way to 'vote with my wallet'. I watched all the reviews I could (video and written reviews) and couldn't find a single reason to be excited about it. It's a disaster in my book because I absolutely adore the Total War franchise. I loved the original Rome, really liked Medieval II and Shogun II was (and still is) spectacular (it's my second favorite overall in the franchise). I actually had hype for Rome II, and hope as well... but worst, I actually had confidence. I told myself that it wouldn't be possible for the almighty Rome II to 'fail' in anyway possible especially due to the fact that the previous game, Shogun II, was a success story. So I thought "how would Creative Assembly fail us with Rome II if they did something great with Shogun II?". Well yeah... it's painful to think about it. A complete waste of what could and should have been the most epic of all the Total War games to date. Even if CA release 100 patches this year I can't possible convince myself that they deserve a cent of my money.

    After having played one of the campaigns...
    I'd like to throw out Resident Evil 6 as a major disappointment.

    Even as a third person action game it's pretty damn lackluster. Then when you factor in that it's a Resident Evil game... it's just sad.

    CA can bug-fix Rome 2 all they want. It'll still be a dumbed down version of previous games in the series with an engine that belongs on the last gen consoles.

    I can't pick one, so I'll just make a little list.

    Ride to Hell: Retribution

    I'd like to say this is the worst, but I didn't have any hopes for it from the start. I bought it just for the lol factor.

    Sim City

    C'mon, does this even need an explanation?

    Rome: Total War II

    Broken at release. I'm beginning to see a trend here.

    Dark

    This game was a massive letdown. That's all I can really say.

    That's about all I have. I may at some point update the list if another comes to me.

    *EDIT*

    Can't forget Star Trek. **** Star Trek, seriously, what were they thinking?

    Probably rename the thread to either 'your' worst, or by the looks of most people's choices, 'most disappointing'.

    Worst game I actually played last year was Walking Dead Survival Instinct.

    And by the looks of the videos, reviews and Steam ripping it off their store, Ashes Cricket was the worst game released by far.

    I agree, the first game on the 3DO was epic especially for its texture mapped roads and awesome crashes which at the time were a huge advancement compared to the leading Outrun!

    NFS underground was ok the rest were **** and they continue to get worse but the first game was the best. Most people i bet didnt even play the first game.

    Oh yeah 3DO was a failure, Trip Hawkins and his vision of a future gaming console crushed by Sega's Saturn which was later crushed by the revolutionary PS1.

    Bioshock Infinite - Complete letdown.. Boring.. Lots of walking.. And more walking.. Zipline.. Shootout.. Walking.... More walking.. Zipline.. I didn't even complete it because I was so bored.. The original 2007 release is still the best imo..

    FIFA 14 - Everything about it is terrible

    COD Ghosts - It takes everything that sucks with previous installments and then piles them on thicker for the extra deep screwjob without lube from Activision. Anyone smart knew this was coming though. It's only on my list because Activision can't get enough public bashing.
