I voted for Crysis.

Some reason: Alot of hype. Good at first until half way through the game where the part with the space ship came into play. Had to lower the setting on the graphic on the second half of the game.

The A.I. need to be fix. They are not very smart even on the hardest setting. The amount of bullet it takes to kill one person.

A few crashes throughout the game.

Overall it is a good game but i think it could have been alot better.

So you voted that an "overall good game" is still the worst/most dissapointing game of 2007?

To all the people who are voting that Crysis was the worse - WHY? The expectations were out of this world but it wasn't a bad game at all - at least until you went into the Alien mothership or whatever the hell it was. You cannot possibly have played both Hellgate London and Crysis and say that Crysis was worse. :rolleyes:

Hellgate London was one steaming pile of crap.

Crysis is running into what DUKE NUKEM FoREVER will run into.... a good game that was over hyped... no game can live up to hype of those levels... people built machines based on Crysis...and when anything is over hyped...peoples natural contrary side comes out and they will say it sucks.

Word of Mouth hype is the best...it makes people feel like they are involved in promoting something they liked..and if others like it .... it legitimizes them on some level. COD4 made alot of sales i think on word of mouth...people who like mindless shoot em up raved about COD4 and its the number 1 sold PC game right now last i looked.


HellGate: London on the other hand is a Horrible game with ALOT OF HYPE. its a pain to play. The characters all look like they are bloated from sugar-free candy ....i rather play COMBAT on the Atari 2600

some of these games on this list are BAD Hellgate/Kane n Lynch

others are very dissapointing.... UT3 , Crysis

in the latter its possible a game can be good but not be great as it was over hyped to be thus making it BAD

Voted for UT3. I was looking forward to this game more than any other... then I finally played it. Utterly disappointed.

As far as worst game, I'd have to say Lair. Hands down.

That makes no sense. The quality of the game is dependent on the marketting just as much as the content?

It is overall a good game but just so much hype made it disappointing.

There is a difference between disappointing and a bad game.

Hell Gate: London & Kane and Lynch is a bad game.

Weird, because I swear half the options on the poll are in people's GOTY list. How did they make it in here?

Crysis delivered what it promised. The gameplay was solid and interesting, if a lot easier and shorter than Far Cry. It was supposed to push the graphics envelope. If you want to blame it's bad performance on anything, blame it on the stagnation of the GPU market. It's been well over a year since we've seen anything new. I would have liked it to be longer and put up more of a challenge, but it was good, and like I said before, it delivered what it prom iced.

UT III was a huge disappointment. It's not a bad game basically, but it could have been so much more with even a trivial amount of effort. Even though it was obviously developed for consoles, it still had potential to be as good as any of it predecessors. When the demo came out the community drew up a list of easily implementable fixes, that were almost totally ignored. It would have taken so little effort to make this game some much more successful. Non-crappy UI? Proper FOV controls? Graphics options? Flack arc and player height issues fixed? Those could all be done by a guy in his basement. Heck they could have included better textures with out any trouble. But no. We get a game that is basically a winner but suddenly given a cold cheek in the last stages of beta testing. What the hell is that?

+1 for Hellgate, Vanguard should be on the list though since it flopped pretty hard.

The poll is clearly for the worst game and not for the most disappointing one, so I reiterate Chombo's question: Why is a game that is "overall good" being considered the worst of 2007 ?

No, the poll question isn't clear at all. Look at the poll question above the poll options, it says "Most Dissapointing/Worse game of 2007". It's asking two completely different questions in one poll, which makes this a useless topic. There should be two different polls for each question.

So why wouldn't you vote for Hellgate or Kane?

Just because someone told you it was going it was to be the best game ever created, and it wasn't but it was still an "overall good game." Does that really justify labeling it the worst game/most dissapointing of the year?

I guess you could say it was dissapointing, but it certainly wasn't the worst. So wouldn't it make more sense to vote for Hellgate?

I voted for Bioshock. Honestly it bored me to death and it was really just a re-imagining of SS2.

I understand why it got good reviews, and it had good presentation, but to me it was just the same kind of same old same old FPS imo.

Just didnt do it for me.

HGL woulda been my 2nd vote.

Voted for Quake Wars.

Something about it that makes me disappointed and makes me retreat back to Quake 3

There were a TON of terrible games in 2007. Crysis was the biggest disappointment, UT3 was just weak, Quake Wars had crap graphics and crap gameplay, and finally, Jericho had great graphics but was lame.

I think so many good games came out this year that people have to pick on the ones that didn't live up to their expectations. I mean comon, Supreme Commander, Bioshock, Crysis and even UT3 are all good games. Take away all the hype and marketing and I'm sure people's tunes would change. Some people don't seem to remember how bad the past few years have been

Agreed, there's only 2 games on that list, that deserve to be. All the others are good games, maybe didn't live up to the hype, but they wern't pure shit either.

Hmm, you should differentiate between worst game and most disappointing game. There is a difference.

Plus, the worst game would be something that people probably haven't played thus isn't in the list - well except for the people that attempt to play the game to see for themselves just how bad it really is.

The poll question should have been either the worst or the most disappointing game in the list. Needless to say, this poll is flawed just from the fact that you can't list every game on the market.

Yeah I can almost agree with that. However my most dissapointing game was probably either Quake Wars Enemy Territory or Unreal Tournament 3.

I didn't vote because the list is retarded... I mean Bioshock? Jesus Christ Bioshock was nominated for game of the year and was one of the best games in recent memory. All of the games on that list could be on a "Best games of 07" list and you are all overpriveledged morons if you think any of them deserve to be on a worst games list

if the poll was still open i would vote for Kane and Lynch. The day i purchased my PS3 i bought NCAA Football and I wanted to get one more game to go along with it. debating between K&L and Uncharted. I decided to go against reviews and forum member's warnings about K&L and check it out for myself...last time i do that. I played the game for about 4 frustrating hours and then traded it into gamestop for $18. After picking up Uncharted and playing through it twice it was pretty damn obvious i made the wrong choice the first time around. Kane and Lynch is a real POS.

There are far worse games out there than what's on this list. Even then...Jericho is an absolutely terrible game, if the demo is anything to go by. Also, it reviewed below a 5/10 average, I believe.

Agreed. I was expecting a lot more crap on that list, not a bunch of AAA titles.

SOF: Payback, anyone? :rolleyes:

call me nuts but I absolutely love Quake Wars and Jericho..

I have SoF 3 and its honestly the worst thing you'll ever play... unless you like the really, really, pre-CS oldschool, center-screen-gun FPSs. Its like duke with quake-like gibs and no soul or story to speak of.

TimeShift deserves to be on that list too... what a POS... they ran out of content so they just upped the difficulty and made the actual fun parts of the game where you use your powers super short and you die like the second they wear off...


I also have to say that I picked up hellgate without having any pre-conceptions about it, and enjoyed playing it for a few months.

Why did you put crysis, UT3 and bioshock there? they were HIGHLY rated, if you call any of them disappointing you obviously don't know alot about games.

I thought it was disappointing and I'm pretty sure I know a thing or two about gaming, unless you're going to discount over 20 years of gaming stretching back to writing my own games in BASIC on a C64.

Did you ever consider the possibility that other people might hold differing opinions than yours? I guess that would be hard for you to fathom, seeing as how you're the all knowing gaming god.

agreed, and other thing, the rating in the games sites, like gamespot.com, is not a way to know the game, take Doom 3 for example. its rate is about 8, but i think it should take 10, is there better game than it in the same games type?

If you think Doom 3 deserved a 10 then you haven't played a lot of good games. People call Crysis a tech demo, at least there is a game and gameplay to it. Now Doom 3, THAT was a tech demo. 15 year old gameplay, a bad story and great graphics. IMHO that game might have deserved a 6, only better than mediocre because of the graphics and that it's Doom.

I laughed so hard at this... are you SERIOUS?

Doom 3 deserved a 6 at best, it was little more than an engine demo, more time went into the level design of the original doom.

Poles closed by my vote goes for either Assassin's Creed or BioShock. Mainly because I haven't played a lot of the others, but also because both of these tiles I was really looking forward to. It wasn't that they were necessarily bad, just really disappointing. Especially Assassin's Creed. Biggest disappointment of the last few years, easily. Assassin's had the potential to be so innovative and incredibly, but instead we got pretty visuals and repetitive boring missions, coupled with an incoherent piece of shit story.

Doom 3 was designed and developed exactly how Carmack wanted it to be. In that respect it should have gotten a 10. If people like you were on the same page as JC you would realize that. As a result, over time you were spoiled by games intendedly more complex than what Doom ever was. It's supposed to be simple.

Yeah if he wanted it to be predictable and boring, well mission accomplished. I can't believe people still gush over John Carmack, he hasn't done anything for gaming recently. I don't think it's right to give a 10 to a game just because JC made it and it's the sequel to a legend. If it would have been called anything else and made by anyone else it would have been a flop, plain and simple.. Oh yeah Romero made daikatana the way he wanted too, we all know how that turned out..
