What is, in your opinion, the worst fictional world in videogames?

Just curious, according to you, what is the worst fictional world (or universe) ever created, and why? Maybe it lacks depth, or lore, or is badly designed, it's up to you.
Any game from any platform is valid.

I'm not a huge fan of the Iliac Bay, from Daggerfall. Its too flat, too empty and too ugly.

I also hated the world in Deponia. Its too trashy. :p

the world of resident evil, silent hill and metal gear solid.
They started out well.
But taking a bmovie plot and expanding it across decades made the plot even worse than mortal kombat in the recent games.

Why would you bring up three popular series in recent history of gaming?? Surely you can do much better than that?? Silent Hill 1 - 3 were some of the best horror games made on console and classics. MGS is one of the best PS1 games ever made. What's wrong with you???

As for fictional worlds that are terrible, I would point any one of the horrible shovelware Wii party games that came out and instantly went on sale for less than 5 bucks like Game Party or World Party Game and more.

Any fictional conflict that paints America as a country in a desperate struggle for survival against more powerful enemies and all the faux patriotism that is derived from it, A la homefront, COD MW2 etc.

I'll agree with Metal Gear. WTF is wrong with that world? Oh no, mobile nuclear launch platforms?! Yeah, we have those in real life. They're called submarines.

So at its core it's a stupid concept, but apparently that wasn't stupid enough so this is a world where having an arm transplant can cause you to become possessed by the owner of the original arm, a world of vampires who's only weakness is 'hard water', and fat men in bomb suits flying around on roller blades....seriously...WTF. This is supposed to be military espionage action.

I always thought the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts "worlds" were really dumb.

My favorites would probably be The Elder Scrolls, MGS, and Mass Effect.
