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.

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..

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 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!!
