The most recent piece of garbage I have played is Empire Earth 3.

Game started off quite fun but a lot of the time the graphics are all jerky.

Plus for some unknown reason the game autosaves every 5 minutes which totally freezes the gameplay.

Now it seems to crash all the time. Thinking it may be an issue with my PC, I checked out some online reviews and most confirm it was released like this.

The new Painkiller game was pretty dire. Just felt very stale and the graphics were accetable about 10 years ago.

One that is more of a crap port than a game, but Dark Souls was complete bollocks on pc. I have heard it was a really bad port, and the PS3 version was much better.

Not terrible as such but The Witcher 2 was very disappointing with how ridiculously short it is.

That "Knytt Underground" thing. Just didn't get on with it at all. Ugly sprites, horrible controls, bit boring. Probably didn't give it much of a chance but I was expecting to enjoy it (having just completed Limbo) but this just paled in comparison.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2.

I bought it in the Steam sale for just over a pound a month or two ago. 15 hours into the game I was completely bored by it, and when I read on Gamefaq that I was no where near the end I lost interest.

I couldn't believe this game got a release. It makes me happy it did though because now i have hope for a Sonic Shuffle HD release

Dead Space 2 - I know I will get slaughtered, but I thought it was utterly tedious drivel. Predictable combat, so dark you couldn't see any decent graphics, monsters that you have to shoot in odd places was just a dumb game mechanic.

Made the game quite difficult I thought, limb removal isn't my forte so I would use more ammo than necessary to kill monsters, thus I run out of ammo and eventually got stuck and abandoned the game....

A sorry tale of poor gamer vs tough game !

GTA IV...

Yes I know a lot of people love this game, but I found it to be a miserable experience. Charmless graphics, charmless characters, awkward controls, awful save system, and dull missions.

I know the whole thing is supposed to be a tongue in cheek look at the realities of the "American dream", but the humour gets repetative very quickly; it's too ott too often.

Now you can shoot me!

Each to own that's why we have opinion that differ but i do have to question the awful save system comment

what is bad about a game that autosave but also has places in the world you can manually save

Ditto. Such a chore to get through to the end of it.

I just didn't like the auto save system, and too many times I had to redo missions from the beginning. I suppose the save system was the least of the problems I had with the game, but it was one I could have done without.

I was very grateful for the long overdue introduction of mission checkpoints in Ballad of Gay Tony.

Another game I didnt like was Lollipop Chainsaw. But that was down to awful checkpoint design rather than the game itself.
