Top Ten Video Games That Could Have Been Better

There are many video games out there that everyone loves and hates, but what about those that felt like something was missing? Here is a list of video games that were good, but could have been much better. If there are any other suggestions, then please add any you wish.

The Top Ten

1 Banjo-Kazooie - Nuts and Bolts Banjo-Kazooie - Nuts and Bolts

The dynamic bear and bird duo know many things, but in this game, its up to the player's knowledge of how to efficiently use cubes, wedges, fuel, etc. to create a vast array of surprisingly strange vehicles. Now that might be okay, if the list of parts wasn't so diverse and some of the weapons able to blow up your whole ride... - mgillisr

2 Little King's Story Little King's Story

The one mistake that the developers made here was the mixture of a teen rating and little kid-like artwork. Other than that, it was a dang good game. CURSE YOU CING! - mgillisr

3 Grand Theft Auto

This relates to all of them. Though the game is well received, there is a certain point in any of these games where one gets very bored of hijacking cars and trucks. Though the developers have added other vehicles, it still doesn't take that boredom away. - mgillisr

4 Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia (Xbox 360) Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia (Xbox 360)

There are four players. Okay. There are, like, millions of hideous monsters to slay. Still good. Some of the levels are glitched to prevent a perfect run. So... And the hardest difficulty has more glitches than you can count. Huh? And two of these levels have bosses that are unable to be defeated, due to glitches. Wuuutt?!?!?! - mgillisr

5 Pokemon Conquest Pokemon Conquest

So far, Pokemon is doing well. This one odd box of a game, however, doesn't have any poke-balls, capture stylers, or even small toys. Nope. Just stare into the eye of your favorite Pokemon and you capture them. And then you battle them against others in order to try and steal other castles... Maybe this is a tower defense version or something? - mgillisr

6 Duke Nukem Forever Duke Nukem Forever
7 Thrillville Thrillville
8 Halo 4 Halo 4
9 Rascal Rascal

So your dad the scientist has been kidnapped by a time wizard. They leave you with only a stupid bubble gun to rescue your poppa. But the number of lives and the terrible controls mean for a pretty bad time! Even touching water can hurt you. WHY?! - mgillisr

10 Haze Haze

The Contenders

11 The Lego Movie Videogame The Lego Movie Videogame
12 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

This game had the makings of a good game, just didn't have enough time to fully get the ideas together.
