I've been far too positive lately. So in that spirit I've decided to make a list of games I hate. Games that in my mind completely and utterly suck. Now to clarify I'm not going to list games that were never meant to be anything other than functional at best. I'm here to talk about games that were meant to be good. And some people do think they're good (they're wrong). Maybe you're one of these people (and once again I want to emphasize you're wrong). But this is my list so fuck off.

So for the month of February I'm going to give you my list. One new game a day. Look forward to it and feel the hate flowing within you. And here it is in no particular order:

  1. Faxanadu
  2. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
  3. Tao's Adventure: Curse of the Demon Seal
  4. Pac-Man (Atari 2600)
  5. Dr. Franken
  6. Torin's Passage
  7. Blues Brothers (SNES)
  8. Limbo
  9. X-Men (Sega Genesis)
  10. Harvest Moon: My Little Shop
  11. Child of Eden
  12. Herdy Gerdy
  13. Final Fantasy X
  14. Actraiser 2
  15. SaGa Frontier 2
  16. Children of Mana
  17. Assassin's Creed
  18. Burger Time: World Tour
  19. The Acceleration of Suguri X
  20. Spyro the Dragon: Enter the Dragonfly
  21. Impossible Mission (Atari 7800)
  22. The Sims
  23. Double Dragon (NES)
  24. Rhythm Heaven
  25. Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart
  26. Street Fighter
  27. Captain Comic (NES)
  28. Journey

1. Faxanadu

The nicest thing I can say about Faxanadu is that it's completely bland even by NES standards. The action was boring. The story was boring. Even the color palatte of the game was boring. Green.... brown... reddish brown... greenish brown... With this much brown and green, I'm fairly sure this game was the direct inspiration for the artistic direction of most HD shooters last gen. While ugly and boring aren't necessarily grounds for hate, I'll tell you what is. The fucking password system.  The "mantra" as they called it. It was 40 characters long with capital and lower case letters, numbers, and a few punction symbols. What a fucking shock that people repeatedly screwed up writing this shit down. This thing was the stuff of nightmares. This bland brown turd is a great example of why not every classic video game was really a classic.

It always kind of struck me as something like a Zelda 2, but in a tree. So yeah, maybe you'd like it.

"Daggers and Wingboots"

Alright, alright I concede... We all have our differences...

Afterall, not every game is a Lords of Shadow 2!
