The film Scum was also about bullying,but watching that film would put anyone off being a 'bad boy'!

Having said that , Rockstar don't seem to care how controversial they are or who they upset,as long as it creates plenty of publicity to sell their games

i think it was cos i spent about 6 months playing it, and never got anywhere, i was a persistent bugger.

OK, my final decision. Air Traffic Control on the speccy. I was only 5 when I brought it, my dad told me it would be censored, I didnt listen.

Tried to play it, had no idea what was going on, so gave up, taped over it a week later! i swear you had to be a qualified air traffic controller to player it.

This must be a bad joke. As much as I adore retro gaming, I think especially HALF-LIFE is a great game with a brilliant sequel.

Kind of a joke, yeah.
Like I said, I know those games clearly aren't "the worst ever".
But I do hate them, and I do think they are lauded way above their worth.

Ironically, first person shooters (and drivers) never make me feel more "immersed" in the game, I actually always feel really detached and uninvolved.
Can't get into them at all.

I quite liked doom back in the day, but I just hate that 2 out of every 3 games these days are FPSs. They have got more and more complicated and just don't have the pick up and play that doom had. This genre more than any has sucked the originality out of videogames.

...though I did play Halo once and thought it was pretty good :?

damn how could I forget this horror:


Rise of the Robots - on any format


horrendously slow, jerky, tedious robot "combat". pressing buttons or moving the joystick had no real effect on what was happening on the screen.
