There have been so many! I can't remember the name of most of them, the one that comes to mind is Sphynx, I think that's how it's spelled. I found it very boring. Didn't even come close to finishing it. :thumbsup:

kudos to a great thread..too often we argue over the BEST, but the absolute worst need to be recognized as well. In my book, the landmark achievements for the worst games are the ones that led you to believe they were great. Theres plenty of crappy games out there, but the WORST games are the ones that had you hooked, and then had a sequel that just absolutely blew. So my list is a mix of the biggest let-downs and the most over-rated flops of all time.

1) Socom 3 (Worlds Worst Let-Down), WWLD for short
2) Grand Theft Auto series(The Worlds Most Overrated Games.... Ever), WMOG...E..
3) MGS2....could we draw the story out and make it any more gay?...well;
4) MGS3....hey let's add MORE ridiculous sci-fi enemies and make the story MORE obscure and ridiculous!!!
5) FF8: Thats a given for any FF fan
6) JAK 2 & 3: Take a great game and make it a free-roaming kiddie version of GTA with the same stupid timed pizza delivery missions...Screw you Insomniac. Don't change a great formula, ...it works EVERY year for Ratchet and Clank.
7) ANY racing game.

I tried the 10 day free trial for world of warcraft and I really wasn't impressed, but I think thats because I had really crappy skills and only got to level 11. Well just games like that and runescape I love them, but they suck so bad when your new. You have to pretty much work in the games to have any fun eventually. I guess thats the key for why there fun, the idea that maybe you could be rich, powerful, and popular.

Smurfs for the Atari 2600. There's no reason for the stupid smurf to die when they landed on a tuft of grass. Oh, and the silly little smurfs should've been able to jump further too.

More currently, I must admit that Fable for the xbox was a massive let down to me. I beat the entire game in 4hours (just doing the main quests, no side quests/adventures). The only good part about it was being evil and running around and killing everything in site. Other than that, I felt that the game was hyped up way to much and didn't live up to it's promises. :thumbsup:

MGS3 is one of my favorite games of all time, and my least favorite of all time is deffinetly Warcraft 3, purely because I suck at it. Other than the fact that I'm bad at it, it's a good game though. Also, this ATV racing game I used to have on PS2, sucked big time but I don't remember the name.

I don't know if it is absolutely the worse game of all time, but I nominate for one of the worst, Romancing SaGA (SquareEnix,which should have known better).

Star Trek: Fleet Command(er?). It looked neat (I saw some guys playing it at a lan) but in practice it was a huge let down. It's the game that finally stopped me from automatically buying games at full price; nowadays I wait until they have been out for a while and I can get them for 30 or so (often 'gold' editions, 30-40 w/ expansion included).

Though I know some folks will consider it blasphemy, I think the whole BF series sucks. No one works as a team, so you end up "lone wolfing" it...literally, when you spawn an hour's hike away from the action. Then by the time you get there, a tank runs you over and you start again. I tried the demo for BF 2, felt exactly the same. Then one of the guys I lan with said that the BF 2142 is boring...and I am thinking to myself, "Well, did you see the title on the box?"

Starcraft was also pretty lame. It got such a following, and it wasn't very good, IMO! Low population cap, you have to have all the resources required to make something BEFORE you start it. The 3 armies were very different, but each of them had only a mere handful of units compared to a true RTS great like Total Annihilation.

I would have to agree with the BF2 series, little to no team work. However, I can say that when my clan was active, we'd have 4-6 people in a squad, and would use teamspeak and run around simply owning the entire map! That's when the game was the most fun, easily one of the best games I ever played. Then, when my clan mates became less active, and I was finding myself "lone wolfing it", the game became less fun just like you said....running for 10 minutes to get to a point only to have artillary land on my head! What's worse is the team killing that's intentional...like when you're running to get in a helicopter and then your teammate kills you so he/she can fly it.....grrrr....that made me so mad everytime that happened! BF2 was a game that has great moments and completely horrible moments IMHO! :thumbsup:
