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.

If iron man won worst game everyone played in 2008, why didnt iron man 2 win worst game everyone played in 2010?

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

ninja gaiden 2? i thought this game was good

Avatar image for dave_d_man

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 :)

mercs 2 looks awsome

Avatar image for Venom341

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 thought they really improved dynasty warriors 6.

I wasen't disopointed by Spore, I was overwelmed by it's awesome gameplay!

@ 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.

CycloneGU 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.

Avatar image for jazzfan4

Merc 2 is insane, I loved it!

Avatar image for comfnumb82

how did mercenaries 2 beat out too human? too human was FAR worse....and how in gods name was force unleashed disapointing? i personaly loved it

Avatar image for Latarax

if everyone says mercenaries 2 was a horrible game why wasnt it in the least improved sequel category

Avatar image for pendal18

star wars was a good game but iron man suckedddd!!!

Avatar image for kaynefart

haze SUCKS omg it failed so much

Avatar image for vidbusters

so i can't download the update, I gotta buy a whole new game to get it all? what's up with that?

Avatar image for StuntMan96

Force Unleashed was an awesome game. Bu it could've been better

Avatar image for teefe

why is mercs 2 the worst i think it was way better than the first especially with the tactical nuke

Avatar image for Dr_Manfattan

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

Avatar image for hamzah1235

i was really looking forward to haze, but its still pretty fun though

Avatar image for AmazedTony123

lol iron man sucks

Avatar image for Darbius

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.

Avatar image for fedepal

why is it star wars up there?? could someone explain??

Avatar image for dropless2002

What about Madden as the worst sequell -that game has been the same since SEGA
