Ubisoft has games on both my best and worst list this year. Let’s start with the worst game Ubisoft released.
This is another game that I really wanted to like, but its main selling point turned out to be the reason why I disliked it. I liked the first Watch Dogs game for its narrative. Not because of the world, activities, or even gameplay. So if I had to rank the first Watch Dogs game it would be like a 6 from me. Watch Dogs 2 would be a 7 and Legion is around a 5. I’ve never grown attached to this series despite my many attempts to. The main selling point of Legion was that you can be anyone in the open world and become a super spy. On paper, that might sound really interesting, but in reality, it did very little for me. I would prefer a cast of strong characters working towards a common goal over a bunch of random joes unless it’s in a CRPG. I go custom party all day in that genre, but in games like this, I’m usually along for the narrative over cookie-cutter open-world bullshit that Ubisoft likes to do.
Watch Dogs Legion had very little good content in it in my opinion. There were no cool moments and nothing ever tempted me to go off the beaten path and explore because the world itself was designed so poorly. Of course, this is all subjective and is only one man’s opinion. I’m pretty sure most people that played this game liked it. I’ve never been afraid to go against popular opinions and have my own hot take. It’s kind of what got me recognized, to begin with, in the blogging universe. I just can’t get into this game series no matter how much I might want to. Why? Because I like the modern-day setting and, on paper, it should be the perfect game for me. It’s just Ubisoft’s way of designing their open-world games doesn’t fit in this one. They go for more quantity over quality and that’s really my biggest issue with this game.
There’s no quality here. Add in the game-breaking bugs on PC and you’ve got a game that I couldn’t even finish and I don’t think I’ll ever return to give it another chance since I let my Uplay Plus subscription go. The gameplay is a bit above average to me. The gunplay is really poor and the animations are laughably bad. The character models look really dated too. Even in Valhalla, I thought that too. Ubisoft needs to drastically overhaul the way their in-game characters look and overhaul their outdated animations. Watch Dogs Legion gave me major performance issues, multiple crashes, and made my PC run hotter than any other game I’ve ever played on it. It was a mess when I played it last month and I’m honestly not curious on whether or not it’s been fixed because I did not enjoy it at all and that’s why it’s so high up on my list. If the gameplay was good this game probably wouldn’t even be on this list because I like the modern-day setting. As it stands, this is a game that’s super boring to play as well as explore.
We’re about to hit the top 5! While the games in the bottom half I could see myself swapping around the placement I can’t say the same about the next 5 games. The next 5 games are the absolute worst games I’ve played all year long and I can’t wait to share them with you. After that, we’ll be getting into the Top 10 Best Games of 2020.
