The 5 Worst Video Games of 2013

Video games are a great way to have some fun while escaping from your life for a few hours, but there is absolutely nothing worse than trying to play a horrible game. Even if the developers put in the hard work and commitment to create a great game, they are not always able to succeed. The last few years have been filled with some of the best video games of all-time, but there have also been a lot of terrible games. These are the five worst video games that were released in 2013.

The Fighter Within

The Fighter Within was released at the launch of the Xbox One, and it was supposed to show off the great capabilities of the improved Kinect. Unfortunately, the controls were absolutely horrible in the game. It was nearly impossible to get your fighter to do what you wanted. Microsoft was hoping The Fighter Within would help propel sales of the Kinect, but it ultimately proved that games were not ready to be played without controllers.

Fast & Furious: Showdown

Most video games based on movies are horrible, but a lot of people had high hopes for Fast & Furious: Showdown. Taking the exciting driving from the films and putting it into a video game could have been a lot of fun, but the developers were completely unsuccessful. Fast & Furious: Showdown had bad graphics, controls and too many bugs to count that made the game completely unplayable.

Infestation: Survivor Stories

Infestation: Survivor Stories was an open world zombie shooter that allowed players to compete against other users or attempt to kill the zombies on their own. Despite great graphics and an exciting premise, the game failed due to several bugs that constantly forced it to crash at any time.

LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles

After the great LEGO Star Wars games on the consoles, The Yoda Chronicles was released as an online and mobile game. There was a foundation for a great game, but LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles was ruined by horrible controls and unsightly graphics.

Adventure Time

Making a video game off the popular children's cartoon television show seemed like a great idea, but Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don't Know! was unable to succeed despite the great premise. The game lacked the charming story of the television series, and the hack and slash gameplay got repetitive after only a few minutes.
