Most cool. Thx for reminding me of the name of that overhyped POS.

Absolutely horrid, and no patches ever released.

At any rate, I think the OP was a bit off -

Most Disappointing Game - Journey. But seriously, they need additional income and topping Flower was a bit too much to expect.


AMY. No competition. The game was extremely overhyped - and in the end, utterly unplayable. Check the pre-reviews vs the end reviews.

Now, before I ever purchase another game from PSN, I'll first look up the developers of AMY. Not only the name of the company, but - as far as I can research - anyone involved. Not another dime. Shame on you.

Amazon should just close the discussion at this point. :)

I have to cast an additional vote for Journey. It was a HUGE disappointment following Flower - which continues to be an incredible piece of Zenlation!!!!
But Journey did nothing for me. Sam I am. Not that it was horrible, but failed to live up to what was expected of That Game Company :)
Though the worst overhyped game of ALL TIME goes to...
That HORRID POS "horror" game w the woman and the little girl - they never patched it and it remains completely unplayable.
They hyped it to no end. I bought it.
I could bother to crank up my PS3 to see the title, but it's Christmas. But the game was intolerably bad given so much promise.

It was the ONLY game that even allowed me to complete my first and only Journey, hoping for some PSN redemption... Fail.

Flower - Zentastic Awesomeness. Journey - Godfather III.

Now please continue with your fanboy console bashing.

Merry Festival of Sun Ra!!!!!!

Oh bother, actually read replies - and yes, the dishonor goes to...


No, don't even bother. The answer is....

I'm sure it's not THE worst game of 2012, since I didn't play them all, but the most disappointing game I played all year was Dishonored. Tired, predictable story, poorly designed game mechanics, and terrible models and textures. Overall just a lazy and unsatisfying package for what could have been an interesting and fun game.

AC3 is a bad choice for worst game because it is actually a really fun game you should give it a second chance.

I agree with Risen 2 but NintendoLand is not a bad game most Wii u owners enjoyed it and you didn't.

Oh. I thought it was because you just hate fun.

Yeah. Probably because I hate "party" games.

I liked Lollipop Chainsaw, Risen 2, and Nintendoland a lot, lol.

This is probably the worst game I played in 2012. Bought it for $10 on Black Friday, played it for about 2 hours, really didn't like it, and traded it back to Gamestop for $12.

In all seriousness, Neverdead.

Posted on Dec 21, 2012, 11:05:03 PM PST
Neverdead is the absolute worst game of 2012.

Yet you would still choose Journey which got fantastic scores? Bad troll! *squirts with water bottle*

Failure troll is failure.

No, it should be a good choice because it's a bad game (or so I've heard, I haven't played it), not because it got low scores from reviewers. A couple of my favorite games from this generation got very low scores.

You are wrong Halo 4 is very far from being a bad game.
