eGamer’s Best Of E3 2012: The Worst Game
Believe it or not, the eGamer team were quite full of rage for this one, so it wasn’t me raging alone, which is quite often the case. Ah well, I am what I am and my rage doesn’t stop me from being too happy to be alive twenty-four seven. Anyway, you’re here for awards and not my life story, so let’s go.
Take a look at what we thought the worst games were:
Diplomatic Dean was too kind:
How does one decide on the worst game? There’s never really a worst game, just games that we don’t play. Or games that don’t interest us. These games might not be bad to players who like that sort of game. For the record: I’m not a Star Wars fan — does that make Star Wars 1313 bad, or uninteresting? Nope. If this was for the most pointless game, then I’d say Medal of Honor: Warfighter. We already have too many games in that genre.
Three names stole the show. Dead Space 3 was the first, as it was embarrassingly bad compared to the many better games on show. It doesn’t even look like a horror game anymore, and I honestly was laughing at the team’s negative reactions to the game at E3, as I kept on reminding them of that time I told them that Dead Space 2 was “mediocre” (but actually rubbish) and that Dead Space 3 would emphasise “shoot ALL the things” even more. The next name was Crysis 3, as it looked just as dull, boring and crap as Crysis 2 and Far Cry 3 easily made it look like a bitch. The last was Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which looked utterly boring and so uninteresting that I forgot I even hated on it ten minutes later. Also, Black Ops II showed off a pretty crap and forgettable demo, but it wasn’t as bad as the above three. Maybe it can tie with Warfighter. Yes, repetitive war shooters, go away. You’re getting old.
I’m tempted to say the usual favourites like Call of Duty: Blacks Ops 2 or Medal of Honor: Warfighter, but Resident Evil 6 set a new low standard for shit sequels. I mean, what the fuck is going on at Capcom?
Medal of Honor: Warfighter did nothing for me. It wasn’t just disappointing but it did nothing for compelling shooter gameplay. It seemed like just another shooter to me. I derived more entertainment from Halo 4 gameplay, and that’s saying something.
Easily Medal of Honour Warfighter. It was just so meh and bland. It’s like they’re aiming to make a mediocre shooter.
Wii Fit U was by far the worst game I came across during E3. Fitness games have never been my thing, much like any motion controlled game, from the Kinect to the PlayStation Move. All fail to meet my expectations. But the idiocy of having to stand on a Wii Fit U board takes the cake for me.
I like how Cavie is trying to dismiss the fact that he’s a closet Halo fan.
