B. Duke Nukem Forever.

This option isn't up there, but I'd clear up a ton of Katamari and Lumines games, and maybe keep a couple of the good ones.

A. Ridge racer.

Post any details, if you want, about what you would (or wouldn't) remove or why. This isn't calling out to any specific games, it's just curiosity.

Quite frankly I don't think I care enough to remove any given game from the timeline, but DA2 comes close.

Id remove Skate 3

#5 Posted by Still_I_Cry (2494 posts) -

I wouldn't remove anything. There is something special about games that are bad. Sometimes it is fun to play them, I don't know why..

#6 Posted by Jrinswand (1695 posts) -

E. Even the worst games never did anything to actually harm me in any way. If I don't like a game or don't think it's worth playing, I don't play it.

I'd say "ET, since an industry without the crash would be incredibly different", but given that it was more a prime example than a sole cause, the crash would've happened, regardless. As for an actual answer, I'll go with Pac Man for the Atari 2600. I'm aware of what I just said, and I stick by it.

B. If the previous games were good, why would I want to delete those?

Dino Crisis 3

I bet you can't even name the first video game ever made. You wouldn't notice if it was gone.

#13 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

Deal with it , don't buy it, don't look at it and stop bitching.

Crysis 2. I would remove it so hard.

#15 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Call of Duty, and any other modern war shooter.

Why would anyone want to remove a game from existence? There will be people out there who enjoy it.

#17 Posted by Animasta (14637 posts) -

what kinda time travel? will it be a different world line? how are we traveling to the past; sending a text message? sending our memories back? actual time machine?

TIME TRAVEL IS SERIOUS BUSINESS.

A: Fifa or any sports game that allows companies to leech money off of idiots.

You're right, I can't, and won't try to. The idea is that things might be different in all kinds of unpredictable ways if it were gone; butterfly effect and all that. I tried not to read into it.

It's just a lighthearted poll anyway, there might be some people out there so dissatisfied with gaming as it is that they'd want the option to somehow shake up everything.

B: Resident Evil Survivor.

True, Pac Man for the Atari 2600 was a really bad port of the excellent arcade game. Yet, I wouldn't want to miss it for the world since it holds só much magic and memories for me! I couldn't care less it wasn't even remotely close to the Arcade, because I-frickin'-played-Pac Man-in-the-comfort-of-my-home! The sound effects are just... Idk, I just loved it! Ánd, I wish to stress that they redeemed themselves with Ms. Pac Man. Still not arcade perfect, and it had its glitches, but a really good game on the Atari 2600 and a big improvement over the original.

I second this, but nobody said Custer's Revenge yet?

This. Fear 2 as well. Rainbow 6: Vegas. Ghost Recon Future Soldier. Basicallly, pc games that have become console focused.

I can't really think of an example in which it has resulted in a better game. It's resulted in more money but I can't think of a game objectively being better because of it.

None. You know how it goes: you remove one game from history, come back to your own timeline, and suddenly the communists have taken over, there's a giant statue of Lenin in the middle of New York, Zeppelins are the primary form of air travel, the coffee bean is extinct so everyone has to drink Comrade Cola instead, all game development is state-controlled and regulated, bullets are the primary currency, worldwide radiation levels are super-high, and the automobile was never invented.

I'm not willing to risk that.

Halo: Combat Evolved.

I love that game, but imagine how different the shooter world would be without it.

#29 Posted by MrNeoshredder (63 posts) -

I might've said Duke Nukem Forever, if "The Doctor Who Cloned Me" DLC hadn't made the gameplay and humor better, and updated the character of Duke to be a likable character.

I would say A) To Call Of Duty, because I always hated the franchise and the unoriginal, lazy writing.

#30 Posted by MrNeoshredder (63 posts) -

@LordXavierBritish: Oh also, you're a dumbass. School shootings date back to the 1600's, way before video games were even invented.

B: Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust

#32 Edited by Trilogy (2637 posts) -

I wouldn't remove any game ever because it would be pointless.

#33 Posted by BeachThunder (11646 posts) -

Donkey Kong - look, you're just going to have to trust me on this one, okay?

#34 Posted by zombie2011 (4968 posts) -

Advent Rising

I really liked that game and knowing there is no sequel makes me sad.

Bad games teach us lessons, we need them almost as much as good ones

But... I thought Crysis 2 was one of 2011's highlights...

OK, it certainly wasn't as impressive as its predecessor, but I still don't see the hate for it. Unless you're using it as a scapegoat for consolization, in which case... shit, I can't argue against that one. Still, fantastic game as far as I can tell. What, in particular, did you hate about it?

Anyway, I voted that I would go back and remove Metroid Other M because it's one bad mark on an otherwise near perfect record, but I didn't go on down and see the "why am I wasting this?" option. I would not waste time travel just to remove a video game from its existence, even if it were the most execrable pile of crap in existence.

#42 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

I wouldn't remove anything, there's a good chance someone out there loves whatever game I choose and I wouldn't want to make them sad!

#43 Posted by UitDeToekomst (699 posts) -

i went with "E". why do this when games have provided so much enjoyment? bad ones can always be ignored. why not use time travel to go 252.28 million years into the past to attempt to observe the Permian-Triassic extinction event? that would be truly worthwhile

This would mean that someone loves either ET or Custer's Revenge.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone did love them ironically. Or at the very least wouldn't want them to disappear from the world!

I would remove a extremely popular game, something that sold gangbusters, then design it again myself and make mad scrilla.

Become Batman.

#47 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

I wouldn't remove any game, good games are praised and bad games are ignored. We need bad games just as much as good ones to show us what is a good game. You might laugh and say of course good games should have x,y and z but if we didn't have bad games to point that out how would we know?

Besides, removing a game might cause a butterfly effect and destroy the universe!!

Brutal Legend....

None. No game is worth the trouble.

#50 Posted by Commisar123 (1790 posts) -

I think someone has enjoyed almost every game so why take that away from them?
