The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

2008 was a great year in gaming, with some truly original and awesome titles, and while we enjoyed lauding the best last week, we derive a secret, shamefulglee by pointing out the losers this week. Like a schoolyard bully mocking the fat kid, let's check out the bottom 5. Ready, fatty-fatty-fatso?
#5Target Terror– Using possibly as many as six live-action, pixelated "actors" to represent several hundred terrorists, this Wii game looked so bad that when we hit it with the ugly stick, the stick got uglier. The real terrorist was Konami who took people's money and gave them this game.
#4 NBABallers: Chosen One – Let the testicle jokes begin because playing Ballers was about as much fun as a kick to the family jewels. Whoever greenlitthis terrible game over at Midway was nuts,and ought to be sacked. Nothing but junk in this package. Penis.
#3 Need for Speed: Undercover– Possibly the biggest letdown in the bunch, because NFS games have actually been good. We wanted this to be good. We hoped itwould be good. It wasn't good. Ever since Most Wanted, this series has been going downhill, apparently with no brakes.Itall ends withthis wreck that we can stare at out the windowas we slowly drive by.
#2 Furu Furu Park– With less depth than a kiddie pool that's been drained for thewinter, Furu Furu Park should have never left Japan. Unfortunately, it turns out thatlittle one-minute minigames that are no fun, simply do not get any more fun evenif there are a lot of them. It's like having a big collection of turds.
#1 Limbo of the Lost – It took something extra special to achieve the worst game of 2008. Just being a really, really bad game wasn't enough for the developers of Limbo of the Lost, they went all out and gave us a stolen, really really bad game. Yes, models, backgrounds, menus, and video were all stolen from a dozen different games and films. It may have only been out for a few days before it got yanked from shelves, but those days were the worst.
