Forums - Gaming Discussion - Seriously flawed games that you love anyway

What games do you adore despite finding them to have significant faults?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

ReCore

game looked like ass at times graphically, animations were awkward and sometimes just bad, long loading times, game clearly needed more time in development and it's smaller budget was immediately evident

had a good story, gameplay concept, and soundtrack though which I think made up for a lot of the flaws and was the game's saving grace 

I still loved it regardless, and the definitive edition at least seemed to improve on a lot of the original problems it had

You are not alone!  I got Bound By Flame due to a drought in RPGs during the first year of the PS4's life, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.  Its flaws were in my face, making it evident why it scored as low as it did...but I liked it anyway.

 

But to add to the topic, my actual pick would have to be...

 

XEdge on PS3.

 

This crossover JRPG had a plot that was a complete mess, ridiculous conditions to obtain the "true" ending, and no explaination of how to use the wonderfully deep battle system aside from a lot of trial and error, with quite a few accidental discoveries.  It was so flawed, and so addicting at the same time for those who allowed themselves to dig deeper into the mechanics.

Am I allowed to say Knack and The Order 1886? :P

Also some people consider the White Knight Chronicles games to be "seriously flawed", yet I think they're brilliant, one of my favourite new IPs from last gen actually, lol.

You know, I feel Knack was overhated and The Order 1886 was great, but too short with untouched potential.

 

White Knight Chronicles was great, but they released half the game by itself, then released the whole thing as White Knight Chronicles 2.  I beat the first one and was really getting drawn in, but right when the story hits the climax, it ends.

 

By the time the full game came out (and yes, it included the first game so I consider White Knight 2 the full version), I had forgotten half of what happened and the high had passed.  I linked my save data and gave it a shot, but there was just no getting back into it at that point.  Shame because I feel if they had just waited to release White Knight 2 out of the gate, the whole experience would habe been much more enjoyable.

MGS 5, the only unfinished game with surfaces scratches from rushed development or at least a lack of time to finish the cooking process, clearly shown in the game but somehow it managed to wrap up as a clean 10 even with the flaws, in fact making a game more polished than most AAA multiplats on release. Kojima got the job done and more with both arms tied behind his back half way through the job, making a superb game and thee best stealth action game to date as well as an 80's action movie simulator, a gem of a game that could easily keep a gamer playing 200 hours later.

And yet I gave up on it after like six missions, it's just too different from the Metal Gear Solid I know, and what I was expecting... it didn't sit right with me at all, actually to the point where I decided I'm not going back to it.

Was so thoroughly disappointed in White Knight. The only game that treats your created character as a support character lol.

To add to mine. Mass Effect Andromeda. It’s actually the only Mass Effect I love.
