"Bad" Games that You Love



  • @Sazime Hey the series is getting a new game with that classic style! Great choice that is filled with gooey gooey FMV cheese.



  • @BogusMeatFactory I think it was think like Megarace that predicated me getting into some of the cheesier sci-fi things out there like Lexx.



  • I love Dragon Age 2 and a lot of people hate in it.

    I also love the Sonic/Shadow levels in Sonic Adventure 2 which gets a lot of criticism (though mostly for the other parts of the game it has to be said).

    Lastly, I really liked Phantasy Star III.



  • Ah I got one that isn't kusoge, many people seem to hate Deus Ex: Invisible War, I think it's great.



  • I think it's all to easy to label something "bad". I've been thinking about an answer for a few minutes, but couldn't think of anything. I've played some true shockers in my time, ones truly worthy of being called bad, I don't like any of them though. While they have a reputation, the likes of Nier, Alpha Protocol. Deadly Premonition etc aren't even close to bad.

    I know what you're asking for, and as easy as it would be for me to just say something like...oh I don't know, Lair? (which yes, I enjoyed), I just don't want to reinforce a reputation that I already feel is inaccurate.



  • My love of skateboarding has led me to endure a great share of terrible skateboarding games. I've always found a way to enjoy a skateboarding game no matter how terrible it was. I managed to pick up all of its intricacies and loved each game for their own reasons.

    This includes MTV Skateboarding for game boy color/PSX/dreamcast, evolution skateboarding, espn skateboarding, street sk8r, etc.

    I don't think it can be controversial just to like something y'know. If you want to argue that a game is good then you might start something. Arguing about "mechanics" and "quality" just makes people all hot and heavy but I'm all about people liking the things that they like. I loved StarWars Battlefront 2016 even if it "lacked content" (which is a weird complaint haha).

    I like Overwatch but imo that game doesn't have even the amount of content Battlefront does. I don't understand why Overwatch is supposedly so much better.

    I very much like Battlefront and I wouldn't consider that a bad game at all.



  • I think soul caliber 4 is the best soul caliber.
    It has better character creation then 3.
    Its the most balanced IMO.
    It has a deeper move pool then 5.

    I also think soul caliber 3 is the best soul caliber.
    It has the most characters by far.
    Armor does not break off of custom character like in 4.
    it has a deeper move pool then 5.
    Has a single player rts style campaign.

    2 is over rated, attacks are stiffed and move pool is small, small roster. It was fun at the time but the future iterations are just better.
    5 replaced half the cast. And its online stopped working for me after the first week no matter what I did.

    Oh man this so much:
    Disney's Skateboarding
    Tony Hawk Proving Ground (actually better than most other open world ones because this one was so buggy sometimes that was good enough for a fun time)
    Skate 1 (imo the worst one because the controls didn't even work HALF the time which is like the bare minimum functionality a game needs)



  • Dead Island. Love it.



  • @El-Shmiablo said in "Bad" Games that You Love:

    I loved every second I played of Final Fantasy XIII.

    In Nomura's name, praise the goddess



  • I really enjoyed Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. It could be extremely repetitive for a lot of the time, but I just found it to be a very relaxing game to play

    I don't think that is a bad game at all. I would consider that a diamond in the rough



  • Dragon Age 2 for some reason. I keep finding myself playing it once a year or so. I don't know why.



  • Got reminded of this one in another thread Mario Party 10 is such a fun game that my friends and I try to get a round in everytime they're at my house.



  • @ThatMartime Have so much fun with this game in a childhood! Awesome music, charming characters. One of my favorite games on PS1!



  • Is Dynasty Warriors considered bad? I loved the games on PS2, became disillusioned with them in my teenage/Call of Duty years, but I just picked up DW8 Xtreme Legends on a PSN sale and I'm having a blast with it! The 2010 Medal of Honor gets a lot of hate too, and I love the campaign in that game.



  • Resident Evil 6. I really liked this game, especially first half of Leon campaign.



  • not bad games per se but less popular ones
    doom3
    quake2(quake4 to certain degree)

    here's bad game i enjoy
    kane and lynch 2. I like art direction of that game

    I don't know if this is controversial or not, but have you guys heard of Croc: Legend og the Gobbos?
    Hey, kids!

    I absolutely loved playing this game as a child, but having replayed it recently revealed a lot of flaws regarding the gameplay and controls!

    I still absolutely love it though. Growing up with a playstation, this was my Super Mario 64, it oozes with charm!

    ..and Gobbos!

    Yes! At the time I only had a Sega Saturn, that was handed down to me. I was so stoked on Mario 64 and jealous cause my cousin had the N64. Needless to say, Croc was at the top of my wish list. It was my only hope for true 3D platforming. I tried to love it so much, but the level design must've been too generic cause I never made it that far. Some day, I'll return to it and beat it.

    Skate 1 (imo the worst one because the controls didn't even work HALF the time which is like the bare minimum functionality a game needs)

    I can't agree with you here. The controls are so polished and nuanced. It's what makes the game so great. I love that progression isn't built into the game, but it's up to the player to progress with the controls. Once you get it, it feels so good and perfect and you can even throw in your own style into it too. I still play Skate 1,2,3 because each one plays a bit differently and I feel like Skate 1 feels the best.
