I think most people have probably put their GOTY lists together by now. So, let's take a moment to balance things out and say something negative about the game we liked the most. I'll start:

BioShock Infinite

The Handymen sometimes ended up being relentless hard.

The Last of Us

That entire segment involving the sniper firing at you is utter bullshit. I mean there's not even an actual sniper there! It's just a model of a gun, and if you watch when it fires, the gun is forever facing forward, but the bullets will actually swerve out of the gun towards you... it really broke the immersion for me.

The Last of Us isn't better than Super Metroid or Vagrant Story, but it is better than basically everything since then other than RE4 and Metroid Prime. Blows every other game from this generation out of the water except maybe Dark Souls, Uncharted 2, and The Witcher 2 (which ultimately still fall well short).

Exactly this, loved everything else about the game, even loved the combat. The handymen just weren't fun to fight. Just got Last of Us so we'll see where that sits. My number 2 game of the year is probably Fire Emblem and I actually don't know what flaw I had with that game.

The Last of Us.

Gunplay feels like utter garbage until you upgrade weapon sway by eating magic pills that grow on plants.

You're telling me a guy who has survived this world for 20 years and probably killed dozens or maybe hundreds of people can't shoot a fucking gun straight?

Bullcrap.

Bioshock should have learned from Spec Ops: The Line and had the ambient dialogue change tone as the story progressed. Elizabeth following up some of those scenes with "I found some money! :D" was weird.

@chilibean_3: Man Bioshock might have been good if ol' Lizzy said "Found some money motherfucker!" instead. "Oh by the way my head is huge, get those fuckers!" "Yo' Booker open this fucking rift" "My lack of a finger is a fucking magical plot device motherfucker, don't ask questions bitch."

I wish the shop was not useless. Having a unlock after every level would had been better then that shop thing. I also wish things did not need juice.

Couldnt agree more. Funny how a series has been all about tomb raiding and the weakest part of the game are the tombs. The sequel can only imporve on that part, cant wait!

I guess the only thing I really can fault that game for is the invasion stages which are more frustrating than fun at times.

@bbalpert: Yes but you can stop them if you do play and they happen to mention that they're moving to you. On the bright side, if you stop one of them, no one will even think of leaving until you turn on the game again. But still. Kind of annoying.

The Last of Us

The combat becomes fairly tedious about 2/3rds a way into the game. Taking a few days off from the game really helped me finish that last 1/3.

The Last of Us

The first few hours are utter tedium both in terms of story and gameplay. It's a good thing it COMPLETELY turns around once you get to the second or third area.

I'm liking the "love" for TLoU in this thread. It signifies it's the Game of the Year for a lot of people in this community, which ain't nothing but a good thing.

@steadyingmeat: Ah, that makes sense.

Anyways, for me it would probably be: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Eavesdropping and tailing missions are never* fun.

*It's kind of funny the first time the game makes you tail someone with your ship, but even that novelty wears off quickly.

Card Hunter is a stupid free to play flash game that likes to occasionally lag for no reason. Also, the RNG is frustrating in that it would sometimes give you the worst hands possible (A hand full of movement cards? ARE YOU SERIOUS?!). And yet I love it.

There should have been more heists! For sure. But still laid the groundwork for a mechanic that I think will help really improve a lot of open world games like this (character switching). It's really like directing an action movie and lets you always have some choices about what you want to be doing.

I spent a lot of time saying that Fire Emblem Awakening was going to be my GOTY, but I recently played some of it and realized that too many of its levels spawn in new enemies halfway through and that's really been getting on my nerves.

Tomb Raider keeps moving up spots in my GOTY.

Gone Home probably should have let the player have a bit more interaction beyond examination. I think the only way that could have been really possible would have been more puzzles, preferably without going full 7th Guest.

I'd normally agree, but I can imagine there are some cases where an abrupt or unsatisfactorily early ending with little to no resolution IS a legitimate criticism.

Injustice: Gods Among Us

The roster is a little too slanted in Batman's direction. Six characters in the roster hail from Batman lore. Mathematically, it doesn't seem like much of an issue, considering the cast is 30 characters deep, but that large a roster allowed the development team to really capture some of the more interesting corners of the DC Universe. Instead, all those Batman characters came in lieu of some classic DC icons (Darkseid, Swamp Thing, Dr. Fate, Booster Gold, even Martian Manhunter and Lobo--who were eventually added after the fact as DLC).

Likewise, adding Scorpion into the roster when there are so many individuals not represented is a crime unto itself.

Asura's Wrath, maybe? That wasn't as much that it didn't have an ending, it was more that it had a lackluster ending to which they added a frustrating "oh by the way, this other part of the story that we glossed over earlier is actually really important but we won't tell you how or why unless you buy the DLC." That being said, the DLC ending is bananas.

Since everyone has picked BioShock (my number 1) or Last of Us (my number 2), I'll go to my number 3.

Super Mario 3D World:

The early levels are stretched too wide to accommodate four players, making them less interesting to play.

No, it was Dark Matter, like @thefakepsychic said. Anyway, I doubt people are complaining about how their games ended and are instead noting that the game ended.
