Shame games - the most embarrassing game in your history

We've all been there, of course. You play a game that's either so bad you don't want it sullying your beautiful list of gaming memories, or you don't want the world to know you took 50 pictures of Kasumi's pants in DOAX2 (pretty sure that one doesn't exist - last count was 647 and we've still not even got5G for it). For example, what's the odd one out here:

G-Force isn't actually a terrible game, but it just doesn't sit right next to Batman and Bayonetta. That's what happens when you buy your girlfriend the game with guinea pigs in it. And once it's there, it can never be removed (unless you didn't get an achievement in which case you can - phew).

So here we've put together your answers, which actually have a clear 'winner'. What will be the most embarrassing game in gamertag histories' history?

And the winner, with THREE votes

(Slow clapping dies down) That's quite surprising really. It's worth noting there were two Avatar games with two votes each, so that series must comea close second. We can see why you might not want the world knowing you've been ogling the ladies inRumble Roses XX or X-Blades. But Lego Indy? It's not THAT offensive, is it?
