Poll: 2013 WORST goty ? (869 votes)

Loco Cycle 5%
Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 1%
Aliens: Colonial Marines 24%
Sim City 5 12%
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct 14%
Army of Two: Devil's Cartel 1%
Ride to Hell: Retribution 29%
Liesure Suit Larry: Reloaded 5%
Beyond: Two Souls 3%
Battlefield 4 1%
COD: Ghosts 3%
Ryse: Son of Rome 2%

I realize some of these are kinda trollish--I really hated my brief experience with the PS4 version of BF4 but there are probably some monsters people out there that like it. I think the obvious picks involve motorcycles...

....................Wait, is it this year or last year that's Year of the Bow?

MOTORBIKE WINS.

Close this thread down please.

#4 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

Did the game formerly known as War Z come out this year? Cause I'd vote for that.

Indeed. I'm offended.

#6 Posted by Brodehouse (9586 posts) -

Oh, I thought you were saying 2013 has the worst GOTY crop.

Because I was going to say that's 2012. That's a weak year.

#7 Posted by Sterling (2073 posts) -

I don't see Brothers on that list?

#9 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11477 posts) -

Motorbike and Ride to Hell: Retribution are responsible for two of the best quick looks of this year, because both of them look like completely broken piles of garbage. That Walking Dead game and Aliens: Colonial Marines at the very least do not explode when you play them.

#10 Posted by chilibean_3 (1622 posts) -

You think those options are only kinda trollish?

#11 Edited by Tom_omb (337 posts) -

@naru_joe93: There are games on that list from 2011, this year and won't be release until next year. Proof a single year cannot contain the bow phenomenon

#12 Edited by lord_canti (1503 posts) -

1 wasn't fist of the north star last year 2 wasn't leisure suit Larry reloaded not a bad game 3 how is bioshock infinite not on here

#13 Posted by Zlimness (541 posts) -

I haven't actually played any of these games. Still voted though, cause I'm a rebel.

#14 Posted by Veektarius (4597 posts) -

Whatever the worst game of the year is, I didn't play it.

#15 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3749 posts) -

Best worst game quick look goes to Ride to Hell that's for damn sure.

#16 Posted by Levius (1076 posts) -

I have played and completed both Aliens: Colonial Marines and Army of Two:The Devil's Cartel, and I have to say I think they're OK, and are better than CoD: Ghosts.

#17 Posted by punkxblaze (2957 posts) -

Aliens: CM is the most straight joyless, broken game this year. A game being enjoyably or ironically bad precludes it from being in the running, I think.

#18 Edited by hermes (1376 posts) -

It almost feels unfair to include COD Ghosts, Beyond and Battlefield 4 in the same list as Colonial Marines, Survival Instinct and Ride to Hell... almost.

#19 Posted by thefeta (40 posts) -

I would toss Gone Home on that list. I was not impressed and I got duped into wasting 5 mins reading crap by its hype train that was about a mile long. However Aliens CM was a total shit show and grabbed my vote and money and I am still bitter. Ride to Hell was so bad it was funny. That hair. Bioshock whether you want to be a hater or not doesn't hold a candle to Aliens CM or RTH in the garbage department.

#20 Posted by Fitzgerald (253 posts) -

@artisanbreads: I'm with you. That Quick Look is great. 2nd only to the Intel FMV thing.

#21 Posted by MarkWahlberg (4578 posts) -
#22 Posted by Fredchuckdave (5339 posts) -

Ride to Hell baby. Aliens just doesn't quite have the charm to be the worst game, it is vaguely competent at a few things.

#23 Posted by afabs515 (1011 posts) -

Why isn't Motorbike on there? This entire list is invalid.

#24 Posted by big_jon (5709 posts) -

Battlefield 4 does not even remotely belong on this list. Neither does Beyond or COD: Ghosts no matter how dull that game is.

#25 Posted by EXTomar (4499 posts) -

So is one supposed to vote for the worst of the best or best of the worst?

Oh damn that was this year?

.... new winner!

#27 Posted by SarcasticMudcrab (146 posts) -

There are a lot worse games out there. Take a look at facebook for a start. Poll invalidates itself with the inclusion of games like BF4 and CoD...disapointing? maybe....worst? just no.

theres a difference between personal opinion and general consensus. Your opinion of gone home doesnt align with general consensus, so including it here would have been wrong

Couldn't agree more. That's why I think the last 4 items on this list don't belong on it at all. There is no way that anyone can objectively look at any of those games and make a sound argument for any of them being contenders for worst game of the year, especially when they're grouped in this list with the likes of Aliens: Colonial Marines and Ride to Hell: Retribution.

EDIT: Originally had SimCity. Meant to write Aliens. Freudian slip I guess.

#30 Posted by ShaggE (6331 posts) -

From what I've played at least, Survival Instinct fo' sho'. It's all the worse because it had some interesting ideas that were completely nullified by the combat and generally terrible execution.

Also, confession time: I never thought Colonial Marines was all that bad. In fact, I thought it was kind of fun. The marketing was a shitshow, and it's not anything like the game we all expected back when it was first announced, but I enjoyed it.

#31 Posted by chiablo (904 posts) -

X-Rebirth

I doubt this will get brought up at all during Giant Bomb's "most disappointing game" discussion later this year; if it does it'll be an easy win. This game was in development for 7 years, and fans of the series couldn't have been more excited for its release.

Egosoft could have mailed every one of their fans a bag full of human shit and it would be a better experience than X-Rebirth.

#32 Posted by Hailinel (23901 posts) -

Ken's Rage 2 is fun and not nearly the worst game to come out this year.

#33 Posted by ttocs (762 posts) -

Definitely Walking Dead. Holy crap that game was brutal.

#34 Edited by TurboMan (7400 posts) -

Over half of these games shouldn't be on here. I understand not being a fan of a David Cage game, but I enjoy them (and a lot of other people do) after accepting their flaws in gameplay and storytelling.

Also, why is COD and BF on here? I get it, you're not a fan of FPS's, but that doesn't mean that the game inside is bad, just predictable.

#35 Edited by laserguy (439 posts) -

Ride to hell is bad but its not as bad as Aliens. I like Ride to hell.

#36 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

#37 Edited by fisk0 (3849 posts) -

Ride to Hell: Retribution seems to have been a terrible game all around, but I don't think anybody expected otherwise, if they had even heard of it before the quick look, and if you dig around a bit, there were likely lots of terrible low budget games that passed below ours or the staff's radars this year. Maybe Takedown: Red Sabre could be nominated, since it was a relatively high profile Kickstarter failure, though while I backed it I didn't have all that high hopes for it, considering how low it's funding goal was, and that it just barely even made that goal.

SimCity on the other hand actively went against what people wanted out of that series, and wasn't even successful at what it tried to do. Out of the games that had any promise whatsoever this year, I'd think it is the worst.

#38 Posted by StingingVelvet (569 posts) -

Didn't play many of those so how the hell would I know.

I voted Sim City though, because I found the online requirement, small city size and multiplayer focus to be pretty insulting to fans of that series. Feels like I was spit on.

#39 Posted by csl316 (8111 posts) -

I watched Game Informer's full live stream of Ride to Hell. You can't appreciate the good unless you see the abysmal.

#40 Edited by xaLieNxGrEyx (2605 posts) -

Everyone who voted Beyond is an idiot.

And no, it's not because it's a good game.

#41 Edited by Live2bRighteous (315 posts) -

Army of Two: The Devil's cartel was actually decent... by no means a bad game.

Ride to hell: retribution better win this.

#42 Edited by Roboculus92 (483 posts) -

I feel like ride to hell doesn't count (unless we're talking about best so bad it's good goty) because it's so bad that it's entertaining whereas something like Aliens: Colonial Marines is just plain bad and busted.

#43 Posted by Oldirtybearon (4594 posts) -

Aliens: Colonial Marines. How is this even disputed?

#44 Posted by cloudymusic (1051 posts) -
#45 Edited by ToTheNines (646 posts) -

I am really happy that a game like Ride To Hell Retribution is made (barely), but holy shit is it bad, but I am thankful cause it's probably one of the funniest QL's in a long time.

#46 Posted by spraynardtatum (2606 posts) -

Simcity 5 out of principal.

#47 Posted by Mooshu (486 posts) -

Ride to Hell is objectively the worst game, but Aliens Colonial Marines stinged more because we all expected that game to be AT LEAST decent.

#48 Posted by dudeglove (7688 posts) -

dat sex scene in Ride to Hell.

#49 Posted by Korwin (2828 posts) -

Beyond shouldn't be in that list.

Ride to Hell was pretty bad, but man was Survival Instincts just a hot mess (especially with Telltales game out in the wild).

#50 Edited by Subjugation (4718 posts) -

SimCity 5 because I feel like I got duped. That game had such potential and totally blew it.
