I'm very interested to know what people think is the worst game of this generation and why?! For example I think Heavy Rain is the worst game of this generation, because it in fact isn't a game at all and I didn't see the appeal of the game! Who knows I may even be tempted to play some of these monstorsities that people list just to see them for myself!

I generally avoid bad games, so I can't really say. One exception would be Heavy Fire: Afghanistan. I actually played through it. Twice. Bad game, to put simply. Could have been worse I guess, but it's a legitimately bad game. I'm baffled that people can call some games "the worst game ever" just because they didn't really like them that much. No offense, but I think calling Heavy Rain the worst game of this generation is kind of absurd. Even if you couldn't get into or understand it, doesn't mean it's a terrible game. But, of course, opinions and such.

War Z probably. Not only was it a horrible game in almost every way, it was also a massive scam.

WarZ, Revelations 2012, Ride to hell: Retribution, these are the sort of games that deserve to be listed here. Calling heavy rain the worst of this generation when abominations like these were released is harsh

Some people are saying its harsh that I called Heavy Rain the worst of the generation but at the end of the day I am only going by the games this generation that I have played, and out of those games, in my opinion Heavy Rain was the worst! I found that while there was next to no gameplay, I also wasnt gripped by the storyline of the game, I found only one character remotely interesting and I worked out the identity of the origami killer rather quickly, I felt that with something like Heavy Rain it needed a good story and character to keep me entertained due to the lack of gameplay and in my opinion it didnt have either!

As bad as the demo was, it was better than the time I had with Black Ops 2 on PC.  Seriously.  That is sad.

The worst is probably The War Z or something. Worst I've played this gen though would be Serious Sam 3.

Recently, war z...umm what else... I hated final fantasy XIII, it was more boring than watching paint dry. I dont know about the worst games but two of the biggest let downs for me were duke nukem and aliens colonial marines.

This is actually a legitimate post guys. Claiming games like Too Human and Mafia 2 were the worst is ridiculous. Amy was basically broken and unplayable the controls were so unresponsive and terrible. At least Duke Nuke em functioned as a game, regardless of what you thought of it. And Heavy Rain wasn't a game. It was a movie....with a giant plot hole. A movie with a giant plot hole.

Well then that's fair enough then, also I'm going to say Kane and Lynch is the worst game of this gen which I've played, and those other 3 deserve honourable mentions

Luckily I tend to avoid bad games, so I cant actually say what the worst game this generation is. But I'd say the worst game I've PLAYED this generation is proabably Dragon Age 2, more due to the level of disappointment than with anything else, as it took everything I liked from the first game and almost completely removed it. Worst game this generation is probably something like Walking Dead: Survival Instinct though, best to look at what got the lowest scores on metacritic.

On the subject of Heavy Rain, I actually really enjoyed it and its one of few games this generation I played more than once, the identity of the Origami Killer also completely took me by surprise, I didn't think it was so obvious.

I haven't really thought about it, but I would have to agree with most that War Z is the worst game of this generation. It's Murphy's Law in play. Completely displays all that could be wrong with a modern video game. 

I don't play many bad games, but the one that comes to mind as a huge disappointment is Perfect Dark Zero.

I liked Heavy Rain but I have to correct you. It had giant plot holes, plural.

As for Amy: I played it on my friends PS3 in which he paid $2 for it. 

I felt ripped off.

It's not. Comes down to what we've played. I don't care if we're talking about games that were universally panned by critics and those that played them. If you didn't play it, you can't say it's the worst game of this gen because you don't know what you're talking about - you're just jumping on a bandwagon. That would be an ilegitimate post: Pretending to act like you know when you don't. You disagree with the picks. Okay.

aww. I had fun with that game. Admittedly, it was pretty poor but there was so few games worth playing back then. The generation was still young. Still sitting on 999 achievement points with that one.

The worst games I have played this generation are (in no particular order): Sonic '06 (360 version is slightly less horrible than the PS3 version) Grand Theft Auto IV (360 version was the only one I played) Assassin's Creed I, II, Brotherhood, Revelations Castlevania Judgment (Wii) Final Fantasy XIII Far Cry Vengeance (Wii) Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Diablo III Mortal Kombat vc DC Universe, MK9 Street Fighter IV series (just on sheer disappointment) MVC3 (because it's broken trash and somehow less balanced than unpatchable games in the series like MVC2 and TvC) Street Fighter x Tekken (picking up a pattern here? Seth Killian and Yoshinori Ono ruined Capcom fighting games this generation) Bioshock (seriously, it's just a shallow and clunky as hell version of SS2 with a ninth grade book report on Atlas Shrugged shoved up its ass)

Depends on what you mean by worst game.

I could point at Call of Duty for bringing the worst gen of games I've ever encountered in my life span.(mostly casualized, and same-same games)

or I could point out a horribly made game. which in case I've played some pretty bad games but I'm sure I haven't played the worst made game this gen.

I liked heavy rain quite frankly it felt like a reimagining of an adventure game. I wonder do you consider point and click adventure games not games either?

My most disappointing game experience(though I had massive hype) was with Mass Effect 3, but really it was only the last 15 minutes that made this so disappointing.(man they could of came up with something easily better than this.)

Then how is it the worst game of this generation? Are we allowed to list movies, books, and albums as the worst games of generation? In that case I pick Grown Ups 2.

How? It's one of the few shooters that's actually fun and unique, and doesn't force you to sit behind cover 90% of the time.

I have to agree with the sentiment expressed earlier that AMY is, objectively speaking, one of the absolute worst games of this console generation. I got it for $2 on PSN, and I feel like I paid $1.99 too much for it. Hell, I felt like they owed me $2 for the hour I tried to play it. It is just horrid in every sense of the word.

Probably because it's impossible to figure out based on the clues the game gives you (especially since the game outright lies to the player and gives absolutely pointless red herrings), meaning the only way is to start thinking meta and ask what would probably be the shlockiest twist possible.

Wow I don't think we could ever get along.

Fallout new vegas = the best fallout game since fallout 2 and the best game with any bethesda influence since morrowing.

Mount and blade series = One of the funnest and uniqe games I've played.(the combat is great)

Vanquish = is just plain fun.

oblivion = while not great is not bad

I could understand not liking them but saying their terrible is just incorrect

The others I haven't played so I can't comment on those, but the way it looks is you just don't like these games so their terrible even though the ones I have played are not terrible(especially fallout NV damn good game). Don't state your opinion as fact is all I'm saying.

Exactly, the devs did so many things to try and confuse you / make you think the killer was someone else, it's like they didn't go back and play the game and realize how absurd the ending was.

Some games are obviously just low rent garbage that are made on a shoestring budget by the dregs of the industry. Some games have a decent budget and are made by people who have proven that they can make great games. With this in mind I'm nominating Assassins Creed 3 as the worst game of this generation. It's total garbage and not one ounce of love or care went into it's development. It's nothing more than a cash in and there's absolutely no excuse for Ubisoft to produce such crap. Assassins Creed is a more cynical venture than even Call Of Duty. It's the equivalent of a Warhol painting. Just a soulless painting of a can of soup and Warhol laughs his way to the bank as art lovers clamber over themselves to pay fortunes for them. They don't see that he's insulting them.

I don't understand the complaint that "Heavy Rain wasn't a game, so it's bad." I agree, it's not a game by the literal definition of the word. As someone else pointed out, point and click adventure games aren't either. Don't look at it as a game. Look at it as an interactive story. I see it as the evolution of the choose your own adventure novels I enjoyed as a kid. If you didn't like the story then fine. But complaining because "it's not a game" is a bizarre argument. It's like if I said "I hate movies because they aren't games." It just sounds silly. 

Oh, and the worst game I played this generation will probably be Sonic and the Black Knight. I'm not going to claim it's the worst of the generation but it was the worst I played. And I thought it was pretty bad.

The worst game I've played this gen is by far Gears of War. But then again I know my tastes and I do my homework before trying a game so I only very rarely end up playing something that I don't like, let alone something bad. I gave Gears of War a shot because it was made by one of my favorite game companies at the time, and boy was it awful. RIP Epic MegaGames.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 2. I liked the original, but this one wasn't quite as good IMHO
