I agree with Lee's list there. Even tho many ppl would start considering hanging me on a crucifix. I know that for having shared my opinions in other forums.
But the very king of lousy games, in my honest opinion, is Oblivion.

That's a very poor argument that's been overused in forums all around whenever Oblivion comes into the party. Not wanting to start a rant or even arguing about it, but just to make my point clear as to why I think it's such a poor argument, I'll ask two questions?
1- Is that supposed to mean that after loosing hours, or depending on free time maybe days or weeks, trying to find best mods and trying to find ways of running them with each other without conflicting and bugging each other, the game will become worthy of my money investiment? (given the circunstace that the game in question hasn't just been released and there's mods already)
2- Would you like to buy a ham & cheese sanswish at a store, and go home and notice you would have to add the cheese and the ham yourself because it didn't come included?
I mean, these are serious busyness guys, not indies or freeware developers. Their products must be complete upon release. The consumer will invest money in their product, most likely with no money back guarantee. You could probably let it go by the fact that the sandwish didn't have what it said, because it costs around 2 or 3 bucks. But if you are spending 40 or more, I don't think so. This is one of the facts that severely disgusted me about oblivion.
But even tho, it's not the decisive thing in my opinion about the game, which comes from a consecutive 2+2 from the time I spent in it.
The whole game is crowded with senseless or nonsense contents all around, has useless features, too heavy despite the graphics not being so top notch as they seem, lunar physics (as I like to call them), very unvaried world with nothing but ups and downs (no plane areas in this world?) and almost the same flora and fauna in 90% (?) of it, amazingly bad gameplay with horses, etc...
Of course, not all is bad, I like the real time level up system and even in some of the bad contents there's a few good things worth noticing, but, in overall, I don't recomend it. Damn Arx Fatalis was so much more fun.
I know my post seems vague, but I hate making posts too big, so if anyone wants I can be more specific.(Warning, I could make a 700 pages book about this, so careful with what you wish for
) But for now, I'm just giving my 2 cents.
