Jess decides to respond to the happy holiday and 'Game of the Year' season with a selection of games that were truly terrible from this year.

Not only was i mislead into thinking it was some great life changing story but it was barely a couple hours long.
It uses a physics engine that was made famous by Half Life in 1998 and doesnt let figure out much of anything. The dang narrator just randomly jumps in and tells you the whole story....
....which is 8th grade diary worthy. Teen forbidden love is not ground breaking stuff.
So what is the game? Im still not sure. An empty house simulator with an audio diary of a whiny high schooler?
There is nothing here. It was the scam of 2013.
Not a good game.
i didn't care much for fire emblem on the 3DS, bought it after finishing ni no kuni, not similar at all. didn't much care for gta v either,... shoot me.
The Gist have almost taken http://bit.ly/1e9eKnB
I didn't play that many games this year but some of the worst I've played are Warlords and Bioshock: Infinite
I have such a crush on Jess but she looks sick in this video. Like ill - think the flu. Not like sick awesome.
one thing i learned from GameSpot is NEVER AND I MEAN NEVER PORTRAY WOMEN IN A NEGATIVE WAY! do it to guys all you want tho.
I can honestly say that 2013 was the most boring year of my gaming history. A steady decline in good re-playable single players since 2012 (and possibly before) has come to a full stop. New gen games are mostly multi player/micro transaction orientated, single player games are dead and multi player games are...I don't know where they will lead to, but they are mostly not for me personally. I can't really recall a game in 2013 that grabbed me like AC2, Batman Asylum, DAO, Witcher1/2, ME 1 or Deus Ex. Still clinging on in hope that the W3 will continue it's successful recipe, small hopes for Thief 4 etc., but I am not holding my breath on the whole.
Aliens:Colonial Marines by far was the worst game of 2013 IMO. Despite being unplayable (Literally) at launch, riddled with bugs, boring, and just really really bad, the worst part was how excited I was to play it, versus how dumbfounded I was after I did that anyone could screw up Aliens that badly. I despise Randy Pitchford and his lies for making (or allowing whoever actually made it) what amounted to a cruel joke out of one of my favorite franchises.
The games that disappointed me the most in 2013:
1. Aliens Colonial Marines - what happened to that Wii U version they hyped? Oh well, never mind I guess...
2. Tomb Raider - "I hate Tombs!" should sum up nicely how I feel about the reboots new cinematic approach.
3. Lost Planet 3 - the most boring movie I ever played.
4. Need for Speed Rivals - 30fps in a Racing Game with NEED FOR SPEED in its title...
5. Bioshock Infinite - Another game that lacks gameplay.
these are by no means the worst games of the year - just the ones I expected a lot more from...
Hey, at least none of them were rote miliary shooters that acted as thinly veiled commercials for US Imperialism, right?
I actually played Aliens: CM and came away mildly amused and happy.
But then, I went into the game with full knowledge of its deficiencies and paid around 25 bucks. So there's that.
Worst game of the year.... Gone Home! It wasn't a game, it wasn't much of anything other than a cheesy teen melodrama, inexplicable reasoning why a teenager would build a sofa fort, why her parents would let her leave it up for months on end and a complete waste of time. I am shocked this game received the scores it did from critics, truly shocked.
a very good review. Great job Jess. PS Ashes 2013 looks horrible. wonder what happened to EA cricket games
Ride to Hell: "Retribution" is the worst, but got most disappointed with Colonial Marines. Thanks for the vid :)
For the record: While many poopoo the game play TR provided the best S3D experience in gaming 2013 had.
Blacklist was not so bad. Surely not enough to be on this list.
(just watch the video - nether of them ARE on Jess's "worse of 2013" games list anyway)
My guess is that other sites can't copy+paste their content when its embedded in their video player so IGN and Gamespot are making even short articles into videos now.
Link to the Youtube upload, because the CBSi video player sucks ass:
@GenTaylor84 Ya chicks hate that, but I'd assume that's the kind of reaction you wanted, but I'll only gladly oblige.
@GenTaylor84 I'm confused as to what your point is, I don't see the negative or demeaning commentary relating to appearance on shows hosted by males on this site
@moko_mokoreto could say the same thing about BF4 & this is coming from a BF4 player
@JulyAeonDisagree. 2014 had a ton of creative indie games and some good mainstream titles as well (Payday 2, Saints Row 4, GTA 5 even if it wasn't that awesome were just some games i enjoyed) and some fun remakes of classic games (Duck Tales, Castle of Illusion)
There were a lot worse years before: 2000-2003 when WW2 was all the rage, Indie didn't really exist and creativity was at an all-time low. Or the mid-90s when graphics was that all that matters and pixelated 3D was enough to sell a ton of games.
Oh my god. Why do you people come to American sites to complain about this stuff? You hate us so much until you need us.
If your American then I'm just ashamed of you in general.
@BelgarAmnWanna hear a shitty story? Beyond Two Souls. Oh My God, what the hell, is nnot interactive drama nor a game, is a laughble story about dumb non sense that doens´t make any sense, full of unnessesary scenes, poor writing, boring action scenes, unlikable characters, things that don´t add up to each other.
@BelgarAmn polygon gave it a 10...lel
@mbloof How in the world do either of these games even come up in the discussion, then?
@Quarkzquarkz close your eyes :p
@solokingxrobertOf course, better then KI.
@RoOhDiNi Bioshock, TombRaider, NFS all candidates for worst games of the year? Are you just trying to look hip? I have to laugh at this post. It's a special kind of stupid, even for these parts.
@RoOhDiNiTR and BI weren't the worst of all, they were/are just horribly overrated. Both about 6/10 for me.
@Horndawgie Sorry, these are not my worst game picks, just the games I felt most disappointed with because of how they ended up - this is totally my opinion, everyone has his own preferences after all...
@Horndawgie I liked the Tomb Raider as well. I'm just not dumb enough to assume that my opinion should be shared by everyone.
@HorndawgieLikely those were the worst games prism actually played. The worst game I actually played was probably Zombie Tycoon, free PSN download, and it wasn't actually horrible, just the worst that I played. No, Retro Rampage was the worst. Also free for PS+.
@theprismhead I suggest reading a book or some other activity for awhile. Clear the crap in your head out...
