This category is always fun and is an anti-award. A game doesn’t want this! There were a lot of horrible games this year and many disappointing ones. The next-gen launch has plenty. Despite the terrible games, there is one in this heap of junk that climbs to the top.
Aliens: Colonial Marines
Boy oh boy, this was one of the biggest gaming disasters in history. Even more so than Duke Nukem Forever. So many people were angry about how horrible this game was, there were even lawsuits! This game blew up the game industry and shamed Gearbox. It was a rushed nightmare of a mess that was incomplete and just plain awful. It looked bad, played bad, and sounded bad. I personally couldn’t even get through the first level. This is a perfect example of how not to do a game.
