Oh, dear. As much as I love presenting my picks for the 10 best games of the year, there's also a certain morbid joy in divulging the year's worst games and trends.
Just like the film industry, a lot of titles get released in a single calendar year. There's a few winners, a whole lot of stuff that falls somewhere in the middle, and a select few that stand out as the worst of the worst.
So sit back, relax, and be proud you didn't buy any of these truly awful games. And if you did, well, I'm sorry.
Did I miss your pick for the worst game of 2011? Sound off in the comments section below.
