Poll: Beyond Two Souls Voted Worst Sony Game 2013 (110 votes)

Agree 30%
Disagree 52%
LOL Movie, Not A Game 18%

ScrewAttack! voted Beyond Two Souls as the worst game on a Sony console for 2013. The other two nominees were Knack and FF14: A Realm Reborn.

I would have to agree, because movies shouldn't be called games. What say you System Wars?

arguably true since it's a movie not a game.

I don't know. I haven't played it yet.

Haven't played it but i listened to the soundtrack, it's great, i'd like to try it someday since i enjoyed heavy rain.

What's with the huge blank spaces in some OP's ? Is that supposed to be videos?

On Topic: Idk, would have to play it to find out.

Which one? Worst Sony game is different to worst game on a Sony platform. The latter seems harsh when we live in a world with Knack, Aliens: Colonial Marines and Why Is My Little Sister So Hot PSP games.

called it.

Why was final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn nominated? It's a fantastic MMO that does the series justice, unlike FFXIII.

I agree it's horrible

#10 Edited by FreedomFreeLife (2019 posts) -

Heavy Rain had 4 different people you can play with, different endings... but in here its just 1 girl... and game is kinda same only with different ending.

Too much same, no different patch... thats why it failed

David Cage has been the cause of asshurt for many years in these forums, knowing that it still continues makes me smile.

9/10, would play again.

#12 Posted by FreedomFreeLife (2019 posts) -

I have no problem with the QTE control scheme; it worked well in Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain. And Telltale’s Walking Dead showed that it was possible to tell an engaging story that fools the player into thinking that he or she has some semblance of control over how it plays out.

But the problem with Beyond: Two Souls is that there is no real control scheme and almost no game play. You move Jodie slowly from one point to another and activate a cut scene. You help Jodie cook a meal by activating a series of cut scenes. Help Jodie in a fight by watching the cut scene carefully and activating the next cut scene.

Yes, it's an embed youtube video of the topic. Something is wrong on your end. I suggest trying to fix it pronto.

#14 Posted by Zassimick (6254 posts) -

I enjoyed Heavy Rain but never really had interest in this game. I'll play it when it gets cheaper if I don't have much else at the moment.

Probably because playing MMO on a console is fail. Best played on PC.

Considering how good they all were, this doesn't mean it was a bad game.

#17 Posted by Rage010101 (5470 posts) -

Guys, you can literally play Beyond Two Souls on Youtube. It's literally a movie. Watch the embbed vid for said reason why it shouldn't even qualify as a game lol.

Your video isn't showing up. It's a glitch.

You should just link to the video.

lol...........no.It is amazing game for the PS3.

#20 Posted by wolverine4262 (18941 posts) -

I havent played it yet, but I dont know why this gets so much hate when a game like Gone Home is praised. I mean, if the only argument is that its not much of a game...

#21 Posted by RoccoHout (975 posts) -

I was really unimpressed with this game, I didn't give 2 shits about Jodie and Aiden but they're the only people you play in that game. Atleast in Farhenheit and Heavy Rain, you controlled 4 unique characters (if you count that one villain cameo from Farhenheit), and there were plenty of different endings to get during the process of the game. In Beyond, you only choose the ending you want at the very end, there's little to no buildup for you during the rest of the game to get different endings.

Not too mention how many bad cliches this game has

My friends, people with ego are the ones that tend to hurt most. Let us hope Mr Cage is riving with emotional torment for truly if a soul deserved failure, he be it.

I liked heavy rain better. But Beyond is ok at most.

It wasn't a good game but Knack and Killzone look a hell of a lot worse.

if movies as games are going to be classified as the worst things in gaming, we'd better throw away every copy of every Metal Gear Solid game ever made.

Oh so you only use metacritic when it suits your argument,,,good to know.

MGS4 is a movie, the other MG's are all games.

That's not really a game. So I'll pick this.

Sounds good to me. My friend, it seems Dues Ex uses a fantastic movie like trailer, that's only about 2 minutes long to set up the games concept. Thats all you need really. The rest is interactive, without the need to kill giving the player many options to play. As opposed to an uninteractive anime or in the case of David Cage, a shitty QTE simulator.

#37 Edited by Crossel777 (5593 posts) -

I don't think it was to do with the fact that it's more of QTE movie game. It just isn't as good as their past works plain and simple.

You know, you idiots never bother to explain how the game is good. You just hide behind scores and metacritic.

Read the Gamespot review.........9.

The Good
Well-developed characters with evolving personalities
Grounded story that examines human failings
Controls help draw you in to Jodie's plight
Choices let you develop Jodie and Aiden as you wish
The Bad.........nothing.

#41 Posted by xWoW_Rougex (2750 posts) -

This award makes no sense. Final Fantasy 14 is on the list so does that mean that we're not talking about Sony exclusive titles and if they think Knack, Beyond and FF14 were the worst 3 among some of the crappy titles (less mainstream titles of course... ) that have been released in 2013 then they are crazy.

#42 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38210 posts) -

I haven't played it myself but I've seen a lot of footage from it and it's ok at best. A lot of the "gameplay" segments are pretty shitty looking and the story and characters are badly written cliches, but that's David Cage for ya

Oh, look, parroting shit. Don't try to hard to actually think critically for yourself, you might strain something.

9.0 AAAE Editors Choice award winner here and by golly that's all that counts and thus SDC. Thank you Sony.

I recall reading a review that stated it was "worse than the worst movie"

#46 Edited by DerekLoffin (8747 posts) -

I'm sorry, but I can't take that award the slightest bit seriously when they used those nominees. There was a hell of a lot worse than any of those games on the various platforms, and it just shows how completely useless that list really is, and thus how meaningless winning (or rather losing) such an award is.

I'm sure you actually played it...not. I bought it on Black Friday for $25 and I will try it for myself very soon. Also AAAe on Gamespot since that is all that matters(which is false,but the idots on SW love to say that).

so you agree that TLOU deserves an 8/10? It was the same reviewer after all.

and you likely bash the game for its outward appearance and actually haven't played it yourself. I'll admit these types of games are not my cup of tea, but they are games. You have objectives and you can fail them. There are also different decisions that affect outcomes of situations. Now, if you want to bitch about whether something is or is not a game and does or does not deserve praise, I direct you to Gone Home.

Overpriced, short, indie game about a "coming out" story where you just walk around a house and learn a story. No decisions, no way to lose. NOTHING. Seeing it get tons of awards everywhere.

The story and characters are basically a bucket with the worst, most over-used Hollywood cliches, and the overall writing is horrible. I've played up to little bit after the party segment of the game, but i really couldn't stand it anymore.

I don't mind cinematic adventure games, i'd love a cinematic adventure game like Beyond but with a good story and a good script. And maybe with a unique setting? Like Planescape?

Imagine Planescape: Torment done like a cinematic adventure game such as this. Without the slightest hesitation, i'd give almost anything to experience that.
