Recently we were contacted by an independent game developer from Adelaide, South Australia. Last year this dev was the target of an outrageous news report.

Outrageous for all the wrong reasons.

The Jimquisition applied more research, editing, production value, and talent to this story than Nine News Adelaide ever did.

Now a local TV news station gets to experience life on the other side of the camera.

On this constructively critical Jimquisition, we explain how using pre-bought videogame assets isn’t inherently wrong, and how they’ve been put to good use.

We also have a CASH CONTEST going on to reward anybody who can prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that talent is an asset.

Top Ten Shittiest Games Of 2017 (The Jimquisition)

*CORRECTION: For some reason I said 2K Games instead of Warner Bros. at one point. I blame these companies being so interchangeable. And the drugs.*

2017 had some absolute gems, but they were more than outnumbered by this year’s horrors, stinkers, and utter flops.

From those games mutilated to earn their publishers cash unabound, to those that simply had no talent behind them, there was much to choose from.

The wine has been drunk, the thinking’s been thought, and now we bring you 2017’s absolute worst games…

It’s Just Cosmetic (The Jimquisition)

The episode we all knew was coming. The Jimquisition at last smashes into the “It’s Just Cosmetic” argument with a bulldozer.

Many will defend certain types of microtransaction and loot box by claiming if they sell only cosmetic DLC, it’s fine. Cosmetics “don’t affect gameplay” and therefore anything goes.

This is rubbish. Cosmetics absolutely impact gameplay, and to argue otherwise is to heap insult upon games as a medium.
