They post these AFTER the STEAM sale has ended. I would have bought several of those best games on seeing their recommendations. Thanks guys.

Hard to believe some of the games on the 10 Worst Games list. I find Shadow of War, GR: Wildlands, Destiny 2 and ME: Andromeda to be fantastic games. Would have replaced some of the bull$hit titles on the 10 Best Games List with these...

I agree with the Shadow of War assssment on the worst list, and I loved Shadow of Mordor. To me it felt like more of the same and not as innovative as I had hoped.

More of the same of a great game makes a bad game?

It was marketed as being new and innovative, espcially in its siege mechanics and army assembly - these aspects were there but not as prominent as I thought they would be and they took a full act of the game to get to.

Not really - but the list is Top 10 Most Disappointing and more of the same of a great game could be disappointing, no?

Yes. Very good point. My bad for not reading carefully...I thought it was a Worst Games List.

Gus' points are totally valid and in that regard, it is fair to put SoW on the list. Same as the other games I mentioned!  O:-)

Same.

I think the animated reference was an older article. 

They've flip-flopped on this stuff for awhile.  I just want more Urban-Dredd live action. 

Also wouldn't mind if they started going into some of the more supernatural JD themes while they're at it.  Maybe that will happen if it turns into a series.

I think it's more an indication of which generation he's in than whose payroll he's on. Even I, who have never owned a gaming console nor played a console game have heard of The Legend of Zelda and Mario.

Honestly, I don't think that's fair to say about Angry Joe. He is merciless when it comes to developers or publishers and his record of content establishes that he is not a Nintendo gamer. In fact, if you watch his review of Zelda, he says that he didn't even own a Nintendo console, but that the game is SO GOOD, that one is actually worth getting. Most of his reviews are clearly for the PC, PS4 and Xbone.

On his recommendation, I moved my Wii U to a room that I spend more time in and bought the new Zelda title. I now have two games on the Wii U...yay!

You have me beat. I had the OG Xbox also, then an Xbox 360, but nothing since then. My son has a PS4 somewhere that he never plays, with Fallout 4 on it. I should try to get it and the TV in his room but I know that'll never fly.

I saw DS in person once, at E3 back in 2003 when some of us WG folks went to cover it. The WG guy I was walking around with at this time had a hate-on for him and went to their booth, where we found him posing for pictures in front of huge displays about his game. The look of loathing in that guy's eyes as he looked Derek up and down...LOL. I'd totally forgotten about that, and the flamewar follies.

My experience was the same. Yes, I mean in concept. My recollection is that most of the systems didn't really work and didn't have much use anyway. But the idea...the idea of controlling a capital vessel stocked with Officers, Crew, Marines, Away Vessels, Weapons, etc. The vision was very forward thinking...
