    The 5 biggest video game disappointments of 2013 (so far)

    By almost any measurement, 2013 has been an embarrassment of riches for gamers. The Last of Us earned some of the highest scores of any game this generation, BioShock Infinite is a critical darling, and the reboot of Tomb Raider was masterfully done.

    But while the hit to miss ratio has been skewed towards hits, the misses have been painful. The only thing worse than a bad game is a game that was supposed to be good, but totally failed to deliver on its promise. You know, like these five stinkers:


    • Aliens: Colonial Marines (Metacritic score: 43-48)
    • The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct (Metacritic score: 32-38)
    • Star Trek: The Video Game (Metacritic score: 42-46)
    • MLB 2K13 (Metacritic score: 48)
    • Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded (Metacritic score: 56)

    To see how these games made the list, go read the article!  The link is at the top Elk grin

    I've not played any of these, myself, so I really can't weigh in.  Have to say that I'm GLAD I don't own any of them!

    I read this article today---just bought Aliens: Colonial  Marines this weekend!!!  Did not pay full
    price,  and still have not gotten to it.   The article said that one guy actually sued because
    Aliens:  M  was nowhere near to being as good as was advertised.   I am an Alien fan and the videos for it looked good.
    Will enjoy it no matter what.

    It wouldn't be the first time I enjoyed a game others didn't.
