10 Potentially Awesome Video Games That Were Stupidly Broken
When you stump up the cash you expect a finished product, not a buggy broken mess.
Back in the war-torn glory days of the first Gears of War, who could forget the first moment in which they used a chainsaw bayonet to carve through the sternum of a sorry locust Drone? How about Bioshock's perfectly ruined realm of Rapture, or the pangs of shock and lament at Aeris' sudden impalement in Final Fantasy VII? Video games - like movies or books - are built on moments like these. Moments which surpass expectation, defy categorisation and convey the beauty and potential of such a beloved medium. However, for every game which deliver such moments and serve as memorable reminders of videogaming excellence, there are those which make us question our devotion to such a venue of art and entertainment. Games which are not only torture to play, but seem as though they have been purposefully designed to hinder the entire progression of gaming. Broken, buggy, glitch-ridden, controller-smashing... these are just a few of the immediate descriptions which spring to mind when considering the following games on this list. While many games are remembered for everything they did right, others are despised for everything they did wrong.
