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:-)

Yeah SoW is very good - it would be incredible if it was the first game in the series. It’s its own worst enemy!

Hugs all around?

The most disappointing sex I ever had was still pretty good.
