All the Mega Drive Sonic games. They have aged awfully and are filled with plain cheap difficulty at times. I can't stand them.

Actually, you can throw just about every Sonic game apart from Sonic 1 Master System, Adventure 1, Colours and Generations onto that list. And even those last three are no more than good in my book. Almost every single Sonic game is filled with cheap difficulty and I can't stand it.

Sonic 1 MS is just a special exception, freaking love that game. MS 2 though I despise with a passion.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption- not even close to as good as the others, dissapointing, less than wowed me...
Super Mario Galaxy 2- extremely dissapointing, repetitive, easy, uninspired, lazy, linear, i could go on and on for hours...

Super Smash Bros. Can't Wait!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time:
Maybe it's simply because I didn't go into it blinded by nostalgia. The game is so much longer than it needs to be simply due to time spent running from one location to another. The infamous side-jumping being the fastest way to get about shows bad design, and the fact that you need to do a side mission just to unlock a horse to travel more quickly really highlights the issue. Hidden secrets are rare, useless and unimaginative, and it seems like the game is focused more on showing itself off on a visual and technical standpoint rather than actual design and mechanics (Which although I'm sure impressed many people when they first played it on the N64, was a bad choice).

This of course isn't the only game I've disliked than many people have loved - but I prefer to only enrage one group of blinded fanboys at a time.

I don't like Assassin's Creed, Dead Space series after 1, Uncharted after 1, I don't like Little Big Planet either, I couldn't really get into inFamous so I didn't even try 2, Mass Effect 1 turned me off of the whole series, Angry Birds, Final Fantasy series, the Pokemon games after Diamond and Pearl, The Bit.Trip series except Runner 2, I didn't like any of the Halos except the remake of 1, Reach, and maybe 4, Gears of War 3's solo campaign was horrible but I liked that one's online the most. That's pretty much it.
I'm surprised no likes Skyward Sword, or Starfox Adventures and Assault. Those were good games I thought.

EDIT: Actually, I didn't like Bioshock 2 or Borderlands either, and alot of the free PS+ games that I've gotten for the past year. I bought alot of the games everyone would say are awesome like AC, and I bought Bioshock 2 when it was brand new, but I was just surprised by alot the franchises of how little they added to change the game at all. The story and pacing being IMO abnormally slow was what turned me off of alot of these games.

@WesCash - really, that [reasons you stated] makes it the worst Mario for you? I don't mind so much that it was easy (but there were definitely some challenging moments on there, and it's a big challenge when it comes to completing the game), and I personally never found it to be "derivative". I'm sorry that you didn't like Super Mario 3D Land, but hey, different strokes for different folks, right? Pardon my reaction, but this is the first time I've heard someone put Super Mario 3D Land and "Worst Mario" in the same sentence

No need to excuse your reaction, it's only my opinion. When I say "worst Mario", I'm comparing it to only the main Mario games (ie Mario platformers) in case that wasn't clear. I believe that all of the other 3D Mario games (64, Sunshine, Galaxy 1 and 2) are much superior to 3D Land. All of the classic 2D Mario games are pretty close to perfection as well. As for the New Super Mario games, I have only played the DS and Wii versions (not the WiiU or 3DS ones) but I can say that I had more fun with those than 3D Land. 3D Land is not a bad game. I just have high standards for Mario games I guess, and for whatever reason 3D Land didn't do enough to satisfy me. It didn't have the fast pace or difficulty of a 2D Mario game and it also lacked the broad scope and element of exploration that the 3D games have. It ended up being lost somewhere in the middle.

Super Mario Galaxy controlled slower than 3D Land. 3D Land at least had the run button, roll, mini leap jump including galaxy's long leap jump and jump roll which made the controls more zippity, varied, fun and a bit more in tune with Mario's previous 2D outings. Galaxy however controls like a slug....It's a great game and everything, but it's not the type of mario that you're going to want to replay again and again because of this reason.

3D Land is basically the definitive 2D to 3D Mario transition, probably because for the first time 'little' mario and the run button finally made thier debut in 3D. yet it actually felt like a 3D NSMB game, without a single drop of originality. While good, it still left me a bit unsatisfyed....Probably because it just
didn't really have it's own identity and once again borrowed too many elements from the previous 2D Games. But at least it's not as unoriginal as NSMB.2.....That is the Worst offender.

In addition to my earlier contribution, I'll add Mutant Mudds.

It's not a bad game by any means, but it's definitely not the be all, end all, of eShop platformers. It doesn't look convincingly retro, it's difficulty later on just gets plain cheap instead of creative, and it has the most generic, uncreative theme I have ever seen in a video game.

That said, it makes brilliant use of the 3D, the controls themselves are tight, and it has a bucketload of content, but the aforementioned issues just really make me wonder what some see in it (in terms of it being one of the best things ever).

Heavy Rain, sure it's got awesome graphics but the whole gameplay is quick time events, that's not a game Sony! Not to mention the story is completely depressing, I would throw that game out the window if I could luckily a friend bought it from me.

Other then that, Lego [Insert popular licence name] Game, hate those games and hate when they do cartoons about it on tv even more.

Super Mario 3d Land. It was far too easy, the levels felt very generic and uninspired, and the linearity of the levels annoyed me greatly.. Definitely one of the worst Mario games..

Super Mario World. Keep in mind, I don't think this is a bad game, just very overrated. To me it just felt like SMB 3 with graphical improvements and slight level changes. Nothing really to write home about..

Monster Hunter. Constantly whacking a monster with a weapon and occasionally dodging just makes for a repetitive game to me..

What's wrong with linear levels? It played like a 2D mario in '3D' it wasn't trying to be the next Mario 64 or Galaxy.
This is what you call a proper old school 2D to 3D mario transition. Too bad it was extremely uninspired and uncreative....Felt like a 3D New Super Mario Bros sequal.

@RR529
Mutant Mudds has some of the lamest 'n stock enemy design I've seen in a videogame in a long time. It also need Bosses, which thankfully will be appearing in the sequal. I agree though, the controls were tight, the score was pretty darn great and i absolutely loved the tough as nails challenge towards the end of the game. I wouldn't call it cheap by any means. There's nothing unfair with it's game design, it's about pixel precision timing, like it always has been with games like Ghosts 'n Goblins, Ninja Gaiden, mega man and what have you.

Still, MM gets more praise than it desserves. :p

@waveboy Yeah that's why it annoyed, it was trying to be a 2d mario game with 3d worlds. Those two don't mix well together for me..

Everyone's crazy over Team Fortress 2, and while I see the appeal, it just wasn't for me at all - I was tired of it in a couple of hours, and hated prettty much all the classes. I still have a lot of respect for it, though. Same with Left4Dead and Call of Duty.

@WaveBoy, it's not the pixel perfect jumping that I thought were cheap, it was the off screen enemy attacks (mostly those blobs that shoot their eye at you, but occasionally those bomb dropping ones as well).

Just going along, trying to land all your jumps, and then all of a sudden a bomb gets dropped on you from an enemy you can't see & had no way of knowing was there until you've already been hit, ugh...

Rayman Origins, Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing games, and Epic Mickey, can't think of much else, because I can usually tell ether I'll like a game or not.

I used to travel the stars, then I discovered Earth, and these incredibly addicting things called 'Video Games.'
