Earlier this month, I first heard about Josh Strife Hayes, a YouTuber doing noble work by playing his way through a pile of unloved and distressingly terrible MMOs in order to find the worst one ever.
To be fair, some of the games he’s tried really aren’t that bad. But I’m having Scarlet Blade flashbacks right now. We once sent a straight guy, a gay guy, and a bi guy into Scarlet Blade to check it out, and literally nobody had a good time. Nobody.
Alas, Scarlet Blade sunsetted – I know you’re shocked – so we won’t see Hayes trawl those waters. But our audience has played so many games that I’m sure you can propose something truly awful for him to try next. (And maybe get it out of your system here instead of forcing our own Chris into this fate in Choose My Adventure.)
I’m not aiming to be pointlessly mean here or bash any devs – look, the devs know better than anyone when their game is bad, and it’s probably not even their fault. And yes, we know you think you’re super hilarious to pick a super popular MMO and call it the worst ever, but you know it’s really not. No trolling allowed: What’s the worst MMO you’ve ever played, and maybe more importantly, what’s so bad about it?
PS: I picked TUG as the header pic because it’s an inaccessible shady Kickstarter scam and deserves scorn, and so that I haven’t accidentally influenced anyone. :D
