The video game industry has managed to turn out some of the most spectacular, evocative, and emotional pieces of media our society has ever seen. I'm not just using hyperbole because I'm a part of this thriving community, but because it's genuine. As video games have clawed and scraped their way out of being seen as lowbrow and shallow entertainment into the realms of real critical note, we've seen a shift in the way they tell their stories, how they involve the player, and how they make us scream, cry, and laugh with surgical precision.
However, this is just one side of the coin because on the other there are titles that pull the entire industry down into the depths once more. Games which weren't big, weren't clever and were in fact a blight on everything we've been trying to move away from. Badly programmed, reductive, and sometimes offensive, the titles on this list make up but a short selection of games doing the dirty on an industry we want to be proud of.
In fact, given half a chance, I bet you we'd all want to erase these games from existence.
