8. Sonic Colors
Sonic Colors was like the Monet of video games, as they say: from far away it looks great but up close it's just a mess. Even the above screen shot feels like a complete betrayal of the in-game experience. As a long time Sonic fan, visiting E3 in 2010 to see where Sega was headed with the series was an exercise in disappointment. Someone had made the baffling decision to put the Sonic Colors display right next to the Xbox version of the high definition Sonic 4: Episode 1, and the contrast between What Was and What Could Have Been was a big let down. Despite that I can get other Sonic games now in high definition, I can't shake Sonic Colors and the feeling that the game would have been half enjoyable with a crisp look. I'd pay for a re-release in a heartbeat.
