Boogity-boogity-boo!
You're Sterved!



Where we all come together to play the absolute worst of the worst. The sour-crème de la sour-crème. The abhorrent side of gaming. The most dreadfu- look, we're playing lovely rear end games, drat it.


This is a community-driven megathread made specifically for all of us to LP lovely games and then whine about it afterwards. If there's a game you've played that was particularly lovely or egregious in any way then this is your opportunity to share that so the rest of us can be disgusted and mildly upset by it.


It doesn't take a lot for a bad game to be bad so use your judgment. Perhaps consider what the rest of the thread is posting and think along those lines. Games like Leisure Suit Larry, Homefront, AMY and Far Cry: Vengeance. Those are just tame examples! There is far worse out there. TV and movie licensed games, failed super hero adventures, free/abandon/shovelware crap, free-to-play monstrosities. The possibilities are endless and so may our disdain be.

This thread will likely be more suited to shorter games (~5 hours). While longer games are still welcome, it may be in the interest of the thread to condense the LP or edit it in some way to fit in with the rest.


SPOILERS: This thread is likely to have spoilers for many games. Use your discretion when discussing them. Spoiler tag if necessary.
3 MONTH RULE: As it stands the three month rule is still in effect. If a mod feels it's okay to waiver that then I'll update this but otherwise respect the forum rules.
SCREENSHOT LP: SSLP's are completely welcome. I ask that you keep your updates on http://lpix.org/sslptest/ and link to that in the same format as VLPs.
FORMATTING: In the interest of keeping the thread tidy, there is an example layout below which you can use for updates. You don't have to follow this format but can you provide at least one header image of the dimensions below so the table of contents will look consistent?

Example Update posted:



Example text. Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

With that out of the way, let's get this poo poo-show started!

I promised Sundowner in the Sandcastle that I had a "special surprise" for the thread. Well, here it is!

Once upon a time, Gamespot had a semi-recurring video segment titled "Don't Play This Game." Reviewers would invoke it when they were faced with a game so bad, they struggled to write a proper review for it. Perhaps the most notable entry in the series was Alex Navarro's infamous 1-star review for Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, which features no spoken commentary whatsoever.

The videos serve to openly mock the games, and portray them in the worst possible light. Only half of the videos in the series even bothered to include actual gameplay footage of the games in question. Each video was almost completely different in format from the last, with the only constant throughout the series being a plea at the end by the reviewer that you, the viewer, "don't play this game."

I'm going to ignore that advice.

I currently have en-route to my house copies of Navy SEALs: Weapons of Mass Destruction, Arthur's Quest: Battle for the Kingdom, Sniper: Path of Vengeance, Gods and Generals, RoboCop, and last but not least, Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing. I'm going to figure out how to get them to run on a modern-day PC, and then I'll play through as much of them as is possible, bearing in mind that some of them are apparently so poorly programmed they are un-finishable. Most of these will be blind runs for me (I've played RoboCop and Big Rigs in the past already), so expect some fair amount of confusion on my part while I attempt to overcome both bad design and a lack of experience with these games.

The first games are slated to arrive as soon as July 1st. I'll update you guys as they actually arrive.

Here is a multiplayer only game that has some of the worst launch netcode I've ever seen in my life. By the end of the game's two week lifecycle I was only launching grenades into people's chests to knock them down then slide tackling them when they stood up. That was how I had fun in BRINK.

It's not only a test of ones patience but of ones sanity outright. ~20fps Wii-mote only gameplay with some of the most horrible AI I have had the displeasure of playing against.

I own FC:Vengeance but I absolutely refuse to play it no matter how bad it is. Not even for the justice of exposing it's foul ways to the thread.

I think there was a Giant Bomb quick look or someone playing the game I had seen recently where there were three guys on a beach, the player walked up to one and shot him in the back twice and the guy kept walking forward, his friends stood still looking away. After the first guy was down the player straight ran into the other enemy guy a couple times with no reaction. While watching this I wondered why someone decided to show off some obscure N64 game the graphics were so bad.

I think it's about 4 hours long (at least the devs have some sympathy for the player) and I got through about 2 hours of it and had experiences like you described more than I care to admit. At one point I walk straight up to a guard facing me and I shot him in the crotch twice and he TURNED AWAY FROM ME exclaiming that he knew I was around here somewhere. I shot him once more in the rear end and he died and then his two friends run up to the dead body (mind you they just pathed to it, they didn't inspect it) and then walked away in opposite directions and I just ran off to progress the mission.

It will take someone stronger willed than I to successfully LP that game but I'd so love to see it done.

Oh my God... please! This game was such an amazing pile of garbage. Perhaps the greatest day of my life was when we found out how to spam "map check" over the radio so everyone could hear it. Me and my buddy eventually took to loading up the game, buying the cheapest cars available, then dueled like rhinos, which lead to interesting results such as our cars going straight up into the atmosphere.

Such fond memories... to this very day "map check" is part of the lexicon for our group. Please, if possible, show off all the radio sound clips.

I think the people making the Aliens game forgot they weren't making a zombie game, because for a game about fighting agile monsters who can clime on walls and ceilings and come at you from anywhere in tight claustrophobic environments you sure are doing a lot of shooting things running strait at you in a strait line from a comfortable distance away in open rooms.

I'm hoping I get lucky with all of the wonderful bugs and issues that others had while I'm recording. It's definitely a pretty mundane game at times but I still think it's pretty terrible insofar as it's relation to the actual movies, which it retcons a number of things that seem pretty drat important otherwise. Hicks and Newt live despite what we were told in Aliens 3, and the body they found and identified as Hicks is now some Wey-Yu mook who Hicks killed just prior to the events of A:CM.

Otherwise it just suffers from the same thing a lot of modern shooters do, it just stings more because it could be a really loving great game if done right instead of being tossed around development studios and regarded as second best to Borderlands 2 (which I'm now realizing is a great coincidence because I'm currently LPing that too!) which is fair on Gearbox's part. They wanted to hone in on BL2 and make it as "good" as they could but they still greenlit exactly what I'm playing now. Complete reckless disregard for the source material, the fans and ultimately a waste of a game.

Just you wait! (until we get to the slow moving, walking-upright Xeno's)


v v v I recall seeing this a while back. Oh how it hurts my feelings to see there could have potentially been a much more involved squad based game based on this source material but never the less it would have suffered from the fact that you sort of need a ton of Xeno's to actually make the squad combat worth a drat. They could perhaps make Xeno's much more difficult and thus spawn less and have a focus on smart squad play but in today's gaming climate I couldn't see that happening for such a hugely popular franchise game.

I'm sure there's something to it like acids that the xenomorph blood produces or just that the jaws of a chest burster are meant to be strong enough to break through bone and muscle. It's not too outside the bounds of Aliens logic I suppose.

It's not too wild that the little bugger managed to burst through his chest plate.

I get the impression that the chestburster scene was animated without regard to what the character model was wearing, honestly. The scene feels laughably empty, like it was put together over the course of an hour. So, y'know, it's a good metaphor for the rest of the game.

Postal 2 is my favorite game I hate to love. I think the biggest flaw with it is that if you go in expecting anything more than total nonsense, you will you be completely disappointed. It's pretty much just a casual game that happens to include shooting with the possibility of killing. That said, *AW breaks the system by railroading you through linear missions, the opposite of what the game proper does, and it requires that you act like a sociopath (which really takes the fun out it.) I'd say it fits the bill for this thread perfectly. Hell, Postal 3 would probably work too, since it hosed up the execution of P2's magic so badly.

*The AW7 mod on the other hand is great. Just stop playing after Friday.

I got most of the way through Far Cry: Vengeance up until a part where you climb an oil rig-- there's a door that I guess is only supposed to open when you've killed all the enemies or something, and first time through the door was open and I walked through it dying almost immediately for some reason or another. The game spawned me right outside the door. But the door was closed. All the enemies were dead. I could restart the console and I still couldn't get through the door or backtrack. I actually remember enjoying the game up until then, but I might be misremembering on account of it being quite some time ago.

The lower difficulty also fiddles with the tarot cards system, but I can still discuss them and they're terrible anyway.

Released back in February to a barrage of hate from both gamers and critics for essentially being Duke Nukem Forever 2.0 in terms of development hell and being passed around like a 10 cent whore. Funny that, considering the studios tied to this game.
