Quest of the Golden Duck swindled me out of 11 cents. A poorly made Pac-Man clone that was completely unenjoyable. I've got to be more careful when pursuing those Switch deals.

Fort Boyard might be the worst game I played in 2019.

A series of mini-games with noticeable input lag.

I would've been better off playing Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games.

@Magician Wow, just looked the game up and I'm sorry you spent money on that. The product page proclaims "Over 10 minigames!" like it's some sort of badge of honor for a $25 DOLLAR GAME. Yikes.

The lack of overlap between Metacritic and Opencritic on those bottom 10s is fascinating! Seems like Fifa 20 is the lowest common denominator. Is it really that bad, though? Feels like it was marked down for EA’s laziness rather than actual objective failure.

Kudos to everyone brave enough to buy things sight unseen! I’m too careful, which is a bit boring.

Only played leisure suit Larry out of both lists... I mean it’s pretty stupid but I had fun with it ha.

Publishers tend to pay developers bonuses depending on if their game receives a certain critic score. Years ago, Bethesda notoriously balked on paying Obsidian their bonuses because the metacritic score for Fallout: New Vegas was short by one point.

Fortunately I haven’t played any bad game that came out in 2019. If games that came out in previous years but I played in 2019 count .. monster hunter generations was a pretty big let down for me ... I think maybe I just don’t get it ? Or maybe I didn’t put enough time into it before I quit. I went in with super high expectations because everyone seems to praise that series .. It felt bored and repetitive to me . Is it just me ? Worth revisiting and putting more time into it ?

Monster Hunter Generations is a brutal game to play solo if it's your introduction to the series. I recommend you check out Dauntless as an alternative in the hunter genre. Dauntless is a more streamlined experience. Then go back to MHG if you want more depth in armor and weapon options in your hunter game.

I think I got it too, but I used nearly depleted gift cards to pay for it.
