Well, this category isn’t something you want to see any games in, but they exist every year, and as time goes on it’s actually harder to find the games to put in here due to how many there are. That’s not a good thing. Many games disappointed this year from buggy launches, unfinished products, being a dud in a loved series, or just plain sucking.
This is one of the toughest awards I have had to give a game to this year. Scorn had so much incredible potential. It’s one of the most artistic and unique looking games ever made. How on Earth do you screw everything else up? The combat is atrociously slow and dull, there is zero story or characters involved, there’s hardly any music, and the puzzles get dull after so long. I wanted this game to be good, and I was utterly shocked at just how not good it was.
