Weve compiled twenty ending videos from some of the hottest games of all time, partially so that we can trash them, but mainly to ruin the experience of earning them legitimately. If youre the type to play three-quarters of the way through a game before being distracted by something more important (like what?), nows your chance to see what you missed, or didnt miss, by being an underachiever.
The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
Kingdom Hearts II
Gears of War
Resistance: Fall of
Are you the kind of inquisitive gamer that likes to try shooting everything with a virtual pulse at least once, just to see what happens? Or maybe you take some guilty pleasure in gunning down gaming's innocent bystanders? Whatever the reason, we all exercise an unnecessarily twitchy trigger finger every now and again, so in recognition of our inner, cold-hearted killer, here's some of the victims of our 'accidental' aggression...
Your squad (Ghost Recon 2 )
It wouldn't be so bad if the
Last week, we brought you a list of popular, classic games... that we despise. But that's easy; for every work of genius, there's a hater (with good arguments.) This week, we're doing something much, much weirder. We've compiled a list of games that range from "totally sucky" to "mostly sucky" that we... well, we love them. A tough task? We agree. That's why we've roped in editors from three other top game publications - PC Gamer, Official Xbox Magazine and PSM to help us out. Hey, they're
These games are classics. They're beloved by millions. The problem? Well, they suck. Don't believe us? Keep reading. Yeah, some had their defenders - even on our staff. But a convincing argument can be made about why each game just doesn't cut it. And that's just what we'll do. Ready? Line 'em up and we'll knock 'em down...
Final Fantasy VIII
Hated by: Nintendo Editor Brett Elston
The entire catalogue of Final Fantasy games is untouchable. We get that. They're all special and unique in their
Hosting a party can be a real chore. You've got to clean up, prepare food, choose music, and hide all the dead bodies if you want your guests to have a good time. Or, if you're lazy like us, you can get them liquored up to the point where they don't even notice the dead bodies, saving you hours of cleanup time. The next time you host a LAN or Mario party, skip all the dirty work and impress your friends with some ultra geeky imbibes by serving up our Top 7 Digital
Real men play sports, drink beer, and know a thing or two about fixing cars. They don't know the difference between the starship Enterprise and Starship Troopers, and they don't fool around or play any games - at least, not ones like these.
We're talking about the sorts of games that can be landmines of embarrassment waiting to explode, ruining your image as a somewhat normal guy. Or worse yet, the ones that are so appealing to the opposite sex that you may never get your hands on your
For every Eddie Murphy there's a Chris Tucker. For every Coke there's a store-brand Cola. For every Mario, a Luigi. You get what we're talking about, right? Lurking in the shadow of every premium product, there's a low-grade, cheapo version. We're pretty sure without this good/bad, yin/yang balance the world would cease to spin on a level axis and topple into a black hole.
More than anywhere (except possibly Hollywood film actors and breakfast cereals) this applies to games. We've lost count
By now, you know the spiel: most Hollywood executives see movie-based games as nothing more than merchandising, no different from action figures and themed socks. Therefore, they could not give a rat's ass about quality, so long as the game sells. And therefore, most movie games are crap. And blah, blah, blah.
We're not here to debate the reasons why 95% of movie games are miserable turds. We like to focus on the positive. And we know that for every 20 or so Rambos or E.T.s or Enter the
As we await Resident Evil 5, there's just enough time to take you through the viruses, monsters and mutations that are the true stars of this amazing survival horror saga. Join us as we link and untangle the most knotty of gaming's histories. Bring some scissors.
Resident Evil 0
Released in 2003 (and so after RE 1, 2, 3 and Code Veronica ) this chartered the events leading up to the Spencer Mansion incident, as the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team are sent to explore the Arklay Mountains where a series
Not content with the tradition of making all games based on a movie suck hard, the good folks at Buena Vista Games have their work cut out for them. Luckily, their latest offering, Meet the Robinsons - inspired by the Disney CG film of the same name - is shaping up to be one of the lucky few to break the mold. Buena Vista is determined to stray from the plot of the film, in which dorky, yet tragically orphaned Lewis searches for memories of his mother... and is subsequently kidnapped and sucked
