I must admit, Mercs 2 for the PC was not spectacular, but it at least didn't have glitches that would impede on the missions. Even with the slight flaws, it was a wonderful game.

It's funny how I didn't play any of the games in their 'Worst Game That Everyone Played' category.

i thought haze had an original concept.. they just effed it up.. R6 Vegas was by far the worst sequel. nothing different.. just unlockables and a sprint button. but yes.. world of goo is a winner on so many levels.. i love indie games because you get so many gems like WOG. peace :)

I actually really liked Mercs 2. Sure there were a couple of bugs and glitches, but it was still really fun to go to a base, blow it up, take a helicopter, blow up a city, then blow up the helicopter.

I loved Mercs 2 despite its flaws. As for Shaun White, well I've never played it so, no opinion.

@ JackHoleFace00: You're so right about Lock's Quest. It's sad shame. I went into Walmart and the entire NDS was practically full of those boring Imagine series games. Anyways, I agree that the "Best Game No One Played" is Air Traffic Chaos and Lock's Quest. Those games are a lot of fun. Too bad not many people have experienced their fun gameplay.

OMG...my g/f got me the M&M Kart Racing game for Christmas 2008...this confirms never again let her buy me a game, always recommend gift cards...we played the M&M game once and agreed it was dumb, and it colleted dust...I tried it again once this evening, no better...and EB Canada only offers 85 cents if you want to trade in the game. Can't even buy a cup of coffee.

i really enjoyed star war tfu, i thought too human was a good game- just not as good as it could have been, and mercs 2 was great apart from the occasional glitch

I have a different opinion for most disappointing. Because Too Human had so much potential I would say it sucking was by far the most disappointing. It was certainly the biggest gaming disappointment I've faced in a long while. And mercs 2 was meh. They should have just stuck with what made the first one great.
