Top 10 Worst Games In Our Favorite Video Game Franchises (Part 3)

Top 10 Worst Games In Our Favorite Video Game Franchises (Part 3)

We all have our favorite Video Game franchises, be it Fallout or Assassin’s Creed or Metal Gear Solid. But even the best of them can stumble at times, and we’ve decided to take a look at the worst games in our favorite video game franchises. Some of these games are good, just not as good as other games in the series, while others are simply bad and not worthy of the company they keep. Also, this is Part 3 of the list, and you can check out Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

Batman Arkham Origins

Arkham Origins feels like a rushed out, half baked product, and that’s because it was. Made by a smaller team, while the main team worked on the next big title in the series, Arkham Origins is a game even Rock Steady chooses to ignore.

Dragon Age 2

I kept playing Dragon Age 2 thinking that there’s was no way that a Bioware title could be a let down, and that the game will pick up any moment now. It didn’t and was a tremendous disappointment.

Hitman: Absolution

Hitman: Absolution felt like it had good ideas, that just were not presented well. It’s a good thing that IO Interactive got it right in the next game with highly re-playable levels and the episodic format.

Battlefield 3

I really enjoyed Battlefield 3, and I have put in at least a hundred hours playing that awesome multiplayer. It’s only here as the worst game in the franchise, and that’s a testament to how consistently good the series has been.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts

Call of Duty: Ghosts probably marks the beginning of the series’ decline in quality and appeal. From a plot that made no sense, to lackluster visual and gameplay design, everything about this game screams mediocre.

Tomb Raider Reboot

The 2012 reboot of Tomb Raider is not a bad game, but it just falls so short in comparison to what the game is up against. It never really delivers the sense of awe, complicated puzzles or massive tombs from the previous games. Neither does it come close to the level of Uncharted, which it tries to emulate.

Devil May Cry 2

Devil May Cry 2 lacks the refined gameplay or the challenge that other games in the series have, and it was a big let down. Maybe Capcom wanted to cash in quickly on the first game’s success.

Duke Nukem Forever

Duke Nukem Forever was a sad way to see one of my favorite childhood games go. Constant delays and massive hype just build up expectations beyond anything this game could actually provide.

Dead Space 3

Dead Space stripped away most of what made the Dead Space games so good. The great atmosphere, tense combat moments, and the genuinely terrifying enemies were replaced by a pretty basic third person game.

Crysis Warhead

Crysis Warhead is fun in its own way, but never really lives up to its predecessor. Apart from a few enjoyable combat encounters, it is easily the inferior game in the series.

This is Part 3 of the list, and you can check out Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
