Top 10 worst games of 2012

Spread the Word!

We all have them and even though everyone’s list is different than one another everyone has games that they flat out hate and regret ever playing. This is my official top 10 worst games of 2012!

Expendables 2 is a terrible game. Why did I waste my money buying this? The truth is I don’t know. It was just there and I decided to get it. The only reason why this isn’t higher on the list is because I knew it would suck.

I honestly don’t know what all the hype is about Journey but it’s a two hour long borefest. There’s nothing to do. I played it, hated it, then deleted it.

I Am Alive is an interesting idea but it failed at actually delivering what matters in a game. Good gameplay… everything I did felt so stiff and unresponsive and the game itself was quite boring. It’s too bad since I was really looking forward to this game after the amazing trailer I saw.

I walked into Binary Domain with high hopes. I had no reason to think that I wouldn’t like it but the game itself is one big mess. The controls aren’t the best but you get used to them after awhile, the story is awful, and the voice acting is just terrible. I tried my best to like this game but the further I got the more I didn’t like it which is why Binary Domain gets a number 7  spot on my list.

Realms of Ancient war had the potential to be a decent coop experience but it fell flat on it’s face. Whoever your coop partner is doesn’t have their progress saved which really sucks for player 2. Follow that up with some stiff character animations, bad graphics, and crappy resolution and you get Realms of Ancient War. This game was just one bad experience after another. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.


This is another game I had high hopes for. Soon after I started playing it I realized just how broken the combat system really is. This game punishes you for not playing the way Bethesda wants you to and that really shows. In order to get the “good” ending you have to go through the game killing as little as possible. If you get caught sneaking around and you’re forced to fight good luck because the combat in this game is terrible. I expected a lot more from this title and it earned a place on my list.

Prototype 2! I didn’t like the first one at all so i’m not surprised the second one is on my list. Prototype 2 doesn’t feel like a sequel at all. The crappy graphics, gameplay, and story does it’s best to ruin what fun you can try and have in this game. Add a generic main character and there you go. One of the worst games i’ve played in a while.

When Malicious first came out people were raving about how hard the game was. Honestly this is a two hour long borefest. Two freaking hours! The gameplay honestly reminded me of Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce and I love that game. The only hard thing about Malicious was trying not to fall asleep while I was playing it.

Capcom actually had the balls to call this game Resident Evil. There’s no story to speak of and all the characters in the game suck. I think if this game was called anything else other than Resident Evil it might have done well but the game is repetitive and boring and I didn’t get any enjoyment out of it at all.

#1 Image

Final Fantasy 13-2 is one of the worst games i’ve ever played. I’m not a fan of the series but i’ve never hated one of them this much. Staring at menu and choosing an action is the way you play this game. Then you watch them act out the animation you chose. You have no control over your character in battle at all. You can’t dodge, or attack when you want so you’re forced to stand there like an idiot and take the full force of their attacks. That’s not even the worse part. The soundtrack is terrible and I mean terrible. It sounds like i’m in a cheap pop concert in game and it gave me headaches at times. Final Fantasy has always been a series I ignored and after this game it’s going to stay that way.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

    To be honest, there were probably worse games out in 2012 (try Game of Thrones, man is it awful), but I’d agree that these were ten of the most disappointing!

      There were a lot of bad games to choose from. I never completed Game Of Thrones so I don’t think it would be fair for me to add to my list. Don’t think I want to because of all the negativity it got from everyone.

    I disagree about prototype by 50% because i also think that part two was garbage but i actually liked part one, maybe if they used that sequel money to improve Alex Mercer instead of saying “here’s this new guy, enjoy!” the game would have been better. my source is myself because i’ve beaten part 2 twice now and have gotten every single trophy for it. oh my god, i just noticed that binary domain is on there? I’m not sure if this is your top 10 worse or the top ten worst in general.

      This is my legit top 10 worst games of 2012. Binary Domain was a chore to playthrough and I found no enjoyment in it at all. Prototype 2 was just garbage and I wasted my time with it.

    I enjoyed reading your best and worst of 2012 lists. Some controversial selections in this one given how Journey and Dishonored both got critical praise. I rather liked FF 13-2. It was a huge improvement on FF 13.

      Dishonored was just bad. I tried my best to like that game but the more I played it the more boring it got. FF 13-2 made me want to throw my Playstation out the window. It’s one of the worst games i’ve ever played.
