The hideous list

I cannot in good faith do a best of the year post, and not because it is only December 9th. There are far to many top tier games that I have yet to play this year. Batman comes to mind, as does Uncharted 3, and Rage, and Dead Island, and Assassins Creed. In short, there is a distinct possibility that I have not played the best that 2011 has to offer...

Lies, I am playing Skyrim right now, and will be for the foreseeable future, but the point stands. What I can do is look over the long and ugly list of what I did play this year and pick the three worst games. This will not be easy, as I play just about anything, but I think it will be a good exercise to look back over the wasted hours of this past year and pick out the worst of the worst. Perhaps I will be so embarrassed by my poor choices that my queue will be slimmer next year and I will take time to not be terrible at Street Fighter and pick up the new King of Fighters.

And I am going to stop drinking and work out regularly, too.

So here it is, in chronological order, the list of shame:

Castlevania: Legacy of Shadow
Fable III
Call of Duty Black Ops
Fallout: New Vegas
DJ Hero 2
Spider-Man: Dimensions
Hydrophobia
Enslaved
Fist of the North Star

Good lord, that quite a list. Before the end of the year the new Rayman will make it in, and King of Fighters XIII will be purchased sometime this weekend (because I hate myself). Look at all those hours. Almost all of them have been played to some level of completion, with the exception of Gears of War 3 which I will finish tonight and Skyrim which will probably never end.

I am not sure to be proud or embarrassed.
