Thoughts from a (girl) Gamer

Tara Voelker's thoughts. A lot about video games, a little about life

Destroy All Humans: Path of Furon – You still haunt me.

So, I (Tara) walked into Gamestop over the weekend just to see if there was anything that caught my eye. Not necessarily buy anything, just window shop if you will. That’s when I saw this:

Destroy All Humans: Path of Furon with a $40 price tag

The worst game ever with a $40 price tag

 

Now you may be asking yourself, “Why did she take a picture of this game?” Firstly, this game and I go way back. As you may or may not know, Destroy All Humans: Path of Furon was my first title I ever worked on. Ever.Β  That’s right, you can go right now and pick up this $40 copy and see my name in the credits if you want. Although I suggest you don’t.

Secondly, this is the worst game ever. It’s horrible. The jokes are bad. The story sucks. The gameplay is lack luster. The art is atrocious. There is no online. There is no multiplayer. There was never DLC. The game crashes… I could go on.

Thirdly, this game – THE WORST GAME EVER – which is like 3 years old by this point… IS MARKED AT $40.

Let’s do a comparison:

  • Halo: Reach is marked at $45.Β  So it’s only $5 more and way newer and more popular.
  • Resident Evil 5 is marked for $23.Β  So, it’s a way better game, and almost half as much.
  • Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is marked for $40… the same price and clearly the better game.

Once again… I could go on.

I was floored. I decided to ask the guy working why this game, which is clearly horrible, was matched price-wise with games people would actually want to buy. The response?

“No one bought it when it came out. So, no one is trading it back in. And that makes it a rare game to find. Since it’s rare, we charge more for it.”

So there you have it. DAH: Path of Furon is now a rare game. Kind of makes me wish I wouldn’t have given my copy away to my little brother. πŸ™‚ If only I had known.

Oh well. It’s still all really funny. I hope you aren’t someone unfortunate enough to have a copy of this game. But hey, if you do, send it to me and I can autograph it for you, haha.
