So some dude
(aka Matt Wadleigh of Thunderbolt) recently put up an editorial examining the ten worst games he ever had the misfortune of reviewing, and to our great surprise, several of them were DS titles. After a moment of outrage (and perhaps a hissy fit or two), we were reminded that reviewers are subjected to many more terrible games than the average discerning gamer, and suddenly, things made a lot more sense (also, he probably reviews a lot of DS games). Still, it made us think a little about the worst DS games we've played, both in the line of duty and in our off time ... which means we have to ask you about the worst games you've played. But not just DS games -- let's consider games from all systems, including PC, and then stack them against the worst DS offerings you've run into. Have you played more bad DS games than, say, bad PS2 games? Insert the system of your choice.
We're not surprised that a lot of bad DS games exist. With people looking to make money off the juggernaut that is the DS, people are willing to throw anything
out there in the hope that it sticks. But how often have you been burned on games that looked good but simply weren't?
