2012 Game of The Year Awards

2012 GOTY Awards: Worst Game of the Year

No one in their right mind actually wants to play bad video games, especially if you have to review them. It becomes this burden on your shoulders that you really can get no joy from whatsoever.

Runners Up:

silent_hill_hd_collection

Silent Hill HD Collection (by Addam Kearney) - All that Konami had to do was port the PC code of Silent Hill 2 and 3 and the games would have been perfect. Instead, they used unfinished code and horrid, “remastered” audio that ruined two of the best survival horror games ever made.

steel_battalion_heavy_armor

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor (by Kyle Orr) - Most Kinect games aren’t great but usually they are at least playable. Motion controls almost never work correctly in Steel Battalion, perhaps spelling the end for the idea of “hardcore” Kinect titles.

WarZ

The War Z (by Addam Kearney) – It’s hard to find a single place to start with all the problems with The War Z. The blacklisting of customers from a global payment database if they ask for a refund, the buggy gameplay itself, the outright lies on their Steam page, the rumors of developers banning players so that they will re-subscribe. All you need to know is the game is so bad it was removed from Steam. Yes, a service that has Bad Rats on it still had to remove The War Z.

Family_Guy__Back_to_the_Multiverse

Family Guy: Road to the Multiverse (by Addam Kearney) – Did you not enjoy hearing that vaguely sexist or homophobic joke? Do you not enjoy boring and bland gameplay? Too bad! Sure, games have been funny before but as a clear cheap tie-in game, no one would actually want a game based on a comedy tv show to actually have any comedy in it.

AND THE WINNER (LOSER) IS:

Resident_evil_screenshot_leon

Resident Evil 6 (by Patrick Cassin) – Broken cover mechanic. Zombies with guns. Too much ammo. Not enough ammo. No healing items anywhere in sight. Camera angles where the main character fills up 80% of the screen. Maybe it would have been easier to just list all of the things that Resident Evil 6 got right: ummm… it has “Resident Evil” in the title.
