Metal Gear Solid Series
Paul Says: Metal Gear Solid was certainly a great stealth action title, but it's hard to deny that parts of the series have become increasingly bizarre over time, most noticeably its story and increasingly outlandish characters. You'll have situations where Snake and Otacon engage in a serious conversation about the impact of war, child soldiers, and other horrible things humanity has done to each other - and then five minutes later you're introduced to a comic relief character with a really nasty case of irritable bowel syndrome. And then there's that one time that one bad guy lost his hand, replaced it with the hand of another bad guy, and then the second bad guy took over the brain of the first bad guy. Then there's the various global conspiracies involving super advanced AI or nanomachines or something and there's also the question as to if love can bloom on a battlefield...
Justin Says: Man, how do you screw up a concept as awesome as a steampunk American Civil War (besides Wild Wild West)?Damnation started life as a Unreal Tournament mod, and while there have been a number of mod projects that successfully jumped to retail, Damnation didn't. Part of the problem was the overuse of steampunk as a magical filler for making whatever you want. Damnation tries to be all serious and badass, but it just comes apart at the seems as cheesy. Oh yeah, and the female lead wears what can only be described as a pair of sleeves held together with string. It's one of the silliest "sexy" video game attire around.
Damnation is another title that got what's coming to it in Unskippable.
