On the fifth anniversary of the beginning of the current console generation, we decided to take a little look back. The difference is while most people are looking at this generation's successes with reverence, examining the wonders these machines have brought us, we%26rsquo;re choosing instead to use this milestone as another chance to mock some of the most epic failures we%26rsquo;ve ever seen.
Though the reasons these things to fall on their face so incredibly hard vary from game to game, the mocking part is universally, consistently fun. It%26rsquo;s really their own damn fault. If the video game industry wasn%26rsquo;t so hell bent on pretending every single product was going to bring about the techno-singularity, we wouldn%26rsquo;t have license to kick them when they%26rsquo;re down. But they do. So we do too. Here, in no particular order, are a baker%26rsquo;s dozen of the worst crash-and-burners of this generation.
