It’s the 25th of December and you’re running downstairs to open up the gifts that your mom, dad, wife, husband, and Santa Claus has bought you. You open the package and you see these titles Duke Nukem, Brink, Street Fighter 4 and Alone in Dark Inferno. You immediately think to yourself “awesome I will be busy until the new year!” As you put the game in your system this happens, click here (warning) at your own risk. (Fyi I warned you in advance)
Many people awaited the Duke like school girls with a childhood crush. The only problem is that when they finally got what they were hoping for, it wasn’t what they expected of the 10+ year development of a game that really portrayed its title forever. This game is known for its terrible story, horrid gameplay basically anything bad this game has it. My short answer to gamers and Santa stay away from the Duke.
Ahhh Brink, a game where I had really high hopes this past year. This title was treated with mixed and unfavorable reviews. The game wasn’t as good as the hype was saying and gamers saw that. I personally really wanted to give this game a go, but after seeing that this game had several issues among its online community and mediocre story I was taken back.
Call of Juarez
Now Call of Juarez is a game that captures all of the bad things you wouldn’t want in a FPS game. The lack luster story, stale gameplay, and horrendous AI will make you wish you got a gift receipt to bring this terrible game back. There bright spots in the game but it’s not that bright if it can’t make up for this really bad game. There is multiplayer and that’s probably the best thing worth noting.
Alone in the dark
I hate this game with a passion. I want to tell you more on this game but I don’t want to relive the horrific nights I had playing one of the worst games I have ever played in the history of my PS3 gaming experience. I could write a novel on the issues wrong with game ranging from the crappy graphics to uninteresting story. The gameplay wasn’t fun either, which involved the mechanic of using fire to defeat enemies. The number one thing that utterly annoyed me about this game was the fact that its story had the worst ending I have ever seen in a videogame in my 21 years of gaming and I’m 23 years old. I’m going to stop there because that’s the closest to PG-13 that I’m going to get talking about this game. If you want to know more of the unrated content, contact me on twitter.
What in tarnation is damnation doing on this list? Well the explanation is simple; I recently got a chance to play this game last year as someone bought it for me on Christmas as a gift. I’ll put it like this, playing this game from afar will save you stress and anger. This game is absolutely horrible and I would feel bad if anyone got this game. The platforming was terrible, story abysmal at best and characters left more to be desired.
Street Fighter4 Games, SSSF4 SSF4 AE
Capcom’s Street Fighter games, I mean what bad can be said about these great games?! They’re fun for the 6 months there out and then you get a Super Street Fighter Edition with 5 or 6 new characters that could have been added as DLC into the original game. Don’t forget it comes with a few new stages as well, they pretty much offer some new eye candy for you to look at for 40 bucks. Then after they release the Super Street Fighter edition they re-release that as Super Street Fighter Arcade Edition. To sum up my point, buying a Street Fighter game automatically assumes that you will be looking for cash further down the line to buy an updated version of the game if you’re that gullible to say the least.
Marvel vs. Capcom games/Ultimate
Now the Marvel vs. Capcom games are a great gift so don’t be mistaken by seeing them on this list. However there is one teeny tiny problem, it seems that a lot of companies and not just Capcom have a habit of re-releasing the same game with a few additional features to its fans. Now I know some people may be questioning their business practices, I know have. But to a person that wants the latest and greatest games this is just a slap in the face to them. It essentially makes that person’s gift obsolete and if that person has already bought the downloaded content for the previous game and want the new game they can’t switch it over.
Now, I know I said 10 games but if you take into account the Street Fighter and MVC games from Capcom, they seem to have a habit of releasing the same game with different characters or levels at different times. So if you bought the original game you’re pretty much screwed. A lot of these games I posted especially Alone in the Dark will make vomit for playing such a horrible game and well Brink and Duke Nukem those games speak for themselves.
