Counting down the months in gaming that'd be better off forgotten

Given the enduring popularity of complaining about games on the internet, you might be forgiven for thinking that every month represented a new low for the medium - the latest social media-fuelled scandal about DLC pricing, online functionality, or non-inclusion of a feature that was previously present but never used is invariably the trigger for worldwide bewailing and rose-tinted reminiscences of a time when every game was wonderful and happiness was unbounded.

From a non-games point of view given what's happened in the last month or two you'd have thought MS had used dijon mustard gas on all xbox supporters.

The only one of the "bad" ones on this list that I even came close to playing was Afro Samurai. I don't remember why I changed my mind but obviously it never seemed to be a hit.

I agree. Metacritic scores might as well be Monopoly money given how much they match reality.

I liked Prince of Persia. I was even "Saviour of the City of Light" which means that you should bow before me or buy me a beer. Or something like that.

I really liked Rise of the Argonauts, I just think people who reviewed it didn't get all the way to the end. If you go through the whole thing then it gets better and better. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Mass Effect (even though I don't) since it's like the same in it's conversation and great story department. Maybe it's just because I like my mythology.
