The only game I can think of right now is BotW. Seem to be drawing a blank except for that game. BotW is a really shitty game. If it were zelda and was on some other system, no on would like it. The only reason people pretend it's good is because it's zelda but it's just a big, poorly designed nothing and it doesn't feel like there's any payoff in the end.

ok scratch that. Much better one would be Muramasa. That game is shallow garbage with nice artwork. 99% of the game is backtracking and it's the definition of repetition.

Polished turd is actually very descriptive. Something like Destiny. A multi-million dollar game that took years to make and it revolves around dull gameplay most people got sick of after a week.

Coddled together from the scraps of a failed mmo project "titan". This game was designed by marketing commitee's who looked at whatever was popular and decided CASUALIZE THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF IT.
There was no clear vision when making this shit. The blizzard of old is dead and gone and yet Activision still find's ways to use their work.
>>
>>423887719
Basically, it's cinematic experiences.
They are polished in the sense that they have high budgets and usually are graphically impressive.
But they are inherently turds because they don't pay attention to gameplay, which is the most important part of a video game, and their stories/plots aren't as good as they wanted them to be.

It's been built on the exact same flaws since near the beginning, those being Flash and the forced lane meta. It's gotten all sorts of new features and shiny coats of paint and character reworks, but ultimately those two things are still there exactly as they always have been and they totally control the design of everything else.

It's more like a game that's a game in the barest sense of the word. It's nothing new, nothing exciting, nothing really even good. But it was marketed well and the polish put in it only really makes it seem good at the surface level.

Take No Man's Sky. Yes, it is a deep space, sand box exploration game with crafting elements. It was marketed well. And honestly, in the first 20 or so hours, it's really good. Then you realize that you've seen everything it has to offer so you stop playing.

Probably every Blizzard game after Diablo 2. Every game has such high production values in almost every regard. Graphically, stylistically, animation, voice work, etc, is all really stellar. People compared Overwatch to Pixar when it came out and it's because it's one of the few video games I've seen that actually animates well. The characters all move and bounce like they're physical matter instead of 3D renders. But it's all in service of... nothing. Less than nothing. Once you really dig into the mechanics of a modern Blizzard game you start to see how weirdly insidious it all is. How it's all based on an underlying game loop that no one ever really wins, but it keeps giving players little shots of dopamine to hook unsuspecting users. I played Overwatch and enjoyed it, but got burnt out pretty quickly just because of how little real meat there was to the gameplay. It's just a bunch of random encounters that you get to ignore because you got a triple kill with your ultimate, or you got a new skin from a lootbox.

It reminds me a bit of the Star Wars prequels in that regard. Those movies had amazing visual effects artists working with top of the line actors to bring to life a script that was pure dogshit.

definitely. they started development on this pile of shit before TTK came out for D1 so none of the fixes, changes and improvements from D1's lifetime were included, and it makes me extremely upset that they're just now starting to fix their shit and sell it to us in the DLCs.

and the story is such bland, uninteresting garbage once again. not to mention they removed the grimoire cards (unironically one of my favorite parts of D1 and the only source of good lore) and said that all the stories are now "just legends" and not canon anymore.

Wow is a turd, but it definately isn't polished.

Destiny. 500 million dollars for a Borderlands clone that is somehow more boring, less funny, and with less character than the original. I am convinced they spent every cent of that enormous budget on figuring out how to make such a feat possible. That technology didn't exist until the Destiny project. How did Bungie do it? How did they go from Marathon, Oni, Halo, to this? Halo was never a great shooter thanks to console limitations but at least it was fun. At least there was variation to the levels, vehicles to play around with, and a story that at the very least made you give a shit even if a lot of it was ripped out of 80s sci fi blockbusters. What the fuck happened?

Destiny is a thing that should not be, and yet, here it is. And then the sequel happened and it's the same exact shit.

Half the people ITT have no clue what a polished turd is, and no it’s not a game you dislike. Stuff like Destiny or Overwatch would be viable answers, but stuff like Bethesda games? Do you know what polished means? You also have some chucklefucks listing VtMB and Dark Souls 2, games that are explicitly stated by EVERYONE to be rough around the edges.

Because mobas are the most unpolished games there are, you insolent cockmongler. Look at the fucking LoL for example. It still has some old models, meta changes every 3 weeks or so.
