(Re)Introducing the Week of Hate

And that’s the Week of Love, everyone! Thanks for dealing with us while we hugged and kissed and held hands like a bunch of idiots, talking about our "feelings" and "enjoying" "video" "games." 

Yuck. What a mess, right? Thank goodness that stuff is all over and done with... well, for this year, at least. 

This week, however, we're returning to form. That's right, folks, we’re falling off the wagon – the Week of Hate is coming back, and it’s as angry as ever. Check back all week as we discuss why some of your favorite games suck (yes, even that one), discuss the most rage-inducing games of all time, and even point fingers at some of the worst games of all time. We have a long list of things to scream and complain about, and we hope you join us. 

And you’ll play a part, too. Check out our Facebook and Twitter pages, where we'll be asking you about the things you hate, too.  

It’s an entire week dedicated to the things that are awful about the game industry, so get ready to purge yourself of all of that horrible, horrible, wonderful hate.

    I love the week of hate, but does no one else realize why GR is pumping out more and more these relatively vapid list articles using this new gallery format? I'm sure if they could format reviews into galleries, they would.

    Might as well leave a comment that isn't a reply. As with every year, the week of hate is one of my favourite times to visit this site, and I feel this year won't be any different, even if many of the fan favourites are gone. I salute those who are gone, and I really do hope that it can only get better from here. So basically I'm just saying what everyone else said, don't mind me...

    I vote for DLC being in the week of hate. It was once important to work hard and to put everything into a game before selling it, but now they just put some of the game out there for $60 and the charge you an arm and a leg on DLC just so that you can get the full experience out of your game. DLC will be the death of gaming, stop before it is to late.

    There better be something about the Mass Effect ending, yes it's been everywhere but goddammit it really was that bad
  • Mooshon - April 23, 2012 5:18 a.m.

    That automatic, full screen rich media Dishonored ad of yours is getting some hate from me already.
  • inkyspot - April 23, 2012 3:40 a.m.

    Sounds like this week is going to be fun
  • lilj805 - April 23, 2012 1:33 a.m.

    I'm throwing Missed-call of duty out there, it lost it's originality after MW2... my opinion anyways :P
  • CitizenWolfie - April 23, 2012 1:32 a.m.

    Booooo! Week of Hate sucks! GamesRadar sucks! You suck! I suck! I can't wait for the week of Hate!
  • PopeBenedictXVI - April 23, 2012 1:13 a.m.

  • ObliqueZombie - April 22, 2012 11:29 p.m.

    Looks like this week isn't going to be a positive outlook for me. BRING IT ON.
  • ThatGamerDude - April 22, 2012 10:11 p.m.

    So what games are on the list for hating this week? You know besides Mass Effect 3...
  • GR HollanderCooper - April 22, 2012 10:53 p.m.

    Not going to spoil it, but I'll say that when we realized we hadn't done it yet we were AMAZED.
  • BackwaterRifle - April 22, 2012 10:07 p.m.

    This is one of the best weeks in the year. Also, fuck anyone who likes borderlands, I despise you.
  • slimjim441 - April 22, 2012 10:25 p.m.

    Totally. Borderlands is unbelievably bland and immediately boring. And I'm not saying that the piss people off (well, not entirely). It was a sub-par game.
  • lilj805 - April 23, 2012 1:28 a.m.

    I thought I was the only one who thought that :D
