Every year we play some really great games. Unfortunately we also play some pretty shitty ones and these are my top 10 worst games of 2014.
10. Magic The Gathering 2015
Magic The Gathering really disappointed me this year. We got a half assed campaign mode with crappy voice acting and very little else content added to the game. I really loved Magic 2014 and I hope they go back to the drawing board with this game.
9. Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn
Final Fantasy 14 is just your generic MMO with Final Fantasy pasted on the cover of it. I tried my best to get into this game, but almost everything about it works against it. Why only have part of the game voice acted? It’s really stupid talking to voiceless npcs and listening to them talk in cutscenes. That’s not even my main problem with the game though. The gameplay is just generic. I can’t play MMO’s that are boring to play and that’s exactly what Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn is.
I really wanted to love Destiny. I even went a little easy on it in my review of the game earlier this year and I really regret that. The new expansion for Destiny is what made me put this game on my top 10 worst games list. Destiny’s lack of content can’t be ignored. This game was a major disappointment. Try harder next time Bungie.
7. Bound By Flame
Bound By Flame was a disappointment from the very beginning of the game. This game has everything that you don’t want to see in an RPG. horrible voice acting, bad dialogue, bad combat, bad level design, and a shitty story. Bound by Flame has interesting lore, but having interesting lore doesn’t mean it’s an interesting game.
6. Alien Isolation
If I could only review the first two or three hours of Alien Isolation it would get like a 9 from me, but I can’t and that’s why it’s here. The more I played Isolation the worst the game got. The alien in the game is cool, but everything else isn’t. The A.I. on everyone else except the alien is bad. Add in some fire fights that work against the game and you’ll be bashing your head against the wall trying to get through them because they’re incredible boring. This game has great atmosphere and a great soundtrack, but it’s not fun. I have yet to play a good Aliens game.
5. Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes
Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes is nothing but a glorified demo. This game is just telling developers that it’s okay to charge us for an hour or two of gameplay. I’ve never been a Metal Gear fan and this made me want to avoid the series that much more.
4. Enemy Front
Enemy Front could have been a really good WWII shooter, but unfortunately that’s not the case. Enemy Front is plagued with bugs and glitches. During my brief time I spent in the game I had a invisible gun, couldn’t see anyone’s face because they were also invisible, the walls were invisible, and the controls just sucked. It’s like the game never loaded and I played a tech demo. Do yourselves a favor and just play Wolfenstein. It’s a much better game.
3. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13
It seems like every year a Final Fantasy game makes my top 10 worst list. Lightning Returns is just a terrible game. It has a broken clock mechanic that Square decided to borrow from Majora’s Mask and horrible gameplay. Is this an action RPG or a JRPG? I can’t see the difference anymore. If you’re going to make an action RPG than make one and please stop putting Lightning in games. She’s a boring, generic character that’s been shoved down our throats long enough.
2. The Elder Scrolls Online
It really pains me to add this game on my list. I really wanted to like The Elder Scrolls Online, but it’s not a real Elder Scrolls game. It’s the bare minimum of what an Elder Scrolls game should be. This could have changed the way most people look at MMO’s, but sadly it didn’t. It’s just your generic MMO with The Elder Scrolls pasted on the cover of it. I’ll just stick to playing Skyrim until The Elder Scrolls 6 releases.
On paper Murdered Soul Suspect sounds like a really good game. You get murdered at the beginning of the game and you have to solve your own death somehow. Unfortunately it’s a far from being interesting. Everything in this game works against it. You can’t control the outcome of the conversations that you have. There are no dialogue branches. Everything is meaningless and I honestly didn’t care about the main protagonist or his dead wife because the story was so poorly written. Hopefully this is the last we’ll ever see of this game.
