View Full Version : This game isn't just bad, it's REALLY bad!

(I had to put the AVGN reference; this thread, and particularly this post is so relevant for it)

Hello gamers. You guys may have played a lot of games, but for every few good games there is bound to be a bad one, and if you're courageous enough to remember some of the worst video games you've ever played, feel free to talk about them here. Before I "let" you post, though, I'd like to share my own story.

I remember visiting my mom's friend's house in Utah in 2003. She had a SNES and Nintendo 64 in the basement with lots of great games such as Super Mario World, Star fox, Super Mario 64, Super Smash Bros, and Pokemon Snap. However, there was one game that still haunts me to this very day... Superman 64.

Oh gods! My eyes!!!

Plagued by god-awful controls, uninspiring gameplay, crappy music, and a decent-at-best (I think this is being too generous on my part) plot, it comes as no surprise that Superman 64 tops my list of worst games I've ever played. Really, all I ever remember trying to do was not to miss those damn rings and I could never get past the first stage because the controls just sucked beyond belief. I later found about ProtonJonSA's playthrough of Superman 64 and boy, after seeing that, shutting off the game in frustration in the first stage was the best thing I could've done with this game. In fact, if the game was mine, I would've probably grabbed a hammer and repeatedly smash it until it didn't resemble a game cartridge.

There are a lot of games out there besides Superman 64 that I've only heard about its awfulness, such as E.T. (Atari 2600), Action 52 (NES), Shaq Fu, Friday the 13th (NES), and Sonic 06, but I haven't played those games so I reserve my criticism on those games... for now. So, what are some of the bad games you've played so far in your life?

I wouldn't really classify any games I've played as 'bad'. Buggy? Yeah. (Fixed with a patch) Boring? Yeah (Personal preferance). But nothing that completely sucked.

And now I remember Star Raiders. It's a decent game but it's control setup is complete ****.

Now, you want to see a game that sucks? Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing. That game is complete garbage. Ironically, it quickly became a collectors item, entirely because it sucked so bad.

Worst game I ever played? Hmm... 2 words. Atari 2600. Its library was TERRIBLE. It was host to two of the worst travesties ever known to gaming: E.T. the video game, and Pacman 2600.

Definitely Superman 64, for Nintendo 64.

It was boring, repetitive, the graphics were strange, it ugh; it was virtually almost unplayable, imo.

Dungeon Lords.

It has a good skill system, ok graphics, but also an nearly empty open world which isn't open, has logic issues (out of some artifacts there is one they tell you to get first, but funnily it's the last one you get), stupid AI, invincible enemies that aren't invincible which one the one hand makes you overpowered (because they give so much exp) and on the other hand breaks so many puzzles, it's not even funny. The ending is stupid too: you get told that you can freely visit every place and see what you changed, but after the dialog the only thing you get to see is the credits.

Some people say, that this game is mostly built for multiplayer but if it was why is there a singleplayer? Also it seems many people complain about the multiplayer having even more bugs and glitches.

I know I'm the only person that's gonna say this, but New Vegas. For me, the game failed in all categories that I rate games in. There was no excitement and I didn't find the plot compelling. I try to like this game, but I just can't and when I get round to playing it, all the hopes I had for it being better this time round drop and I don't think I'm gonna waste my time with it anymore, quite frankly.

Although Colladoody is hardly up my list, I agree, it's a definition of series of rehashes if I ever saw one.

The worst game I have played is Sonic Riders for the kinect on the 360, I don't actully own the game but I played it at my in laws last christmas. I found it very difficult to control, so I lost every race I did.

I'm sorta surprised Sonic 2006 hasn't been brought up yet. There is just so much wrong with that game. The controls are bad regardless of platform, the graphics are basically an attempt of Sonic x Final Fantasy which does not work at all, glitchy as hell, the plot is just a big ball of awkward (and makes itself completely pointless in the end), and probably the biggest kick in the face from it is due to how it was hyped to be the franchise's revival. Pretty shameful, really.

I haven't played Sonic 06 myself but based on poor reviews and all of my friends saying it's downright unplayable, I plan to steer clear from it.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3...
-sigh-
It was like i bought MW2 again, but then with other weapons, perks and maps... It was so rubbish. The story wasnt interesting at all and most of the cutscenes were just laughably bad. Multiplayer wasnt that fun cause once again communities ruin the place. The Specal Ops missions were really bad and the survival mode... im not even gonna start there...

Worst 60 euro's spent in my life...

The new SimCity game was one of the biggest disappointments for me in the current era of gaming. Staple features like subways and altering the terrain were removed, and map sizes were severely shrunken down from previous installments. The game also requires a persistent internet connection, which can get really annoying. While the idea of multiple players controlling different cities in a region and buying/ selling services to each other is cool, there should be no need for the game to be online while in single player mode. On top of that, it requires a monster of a computer just to run without issues.

In a similar vein, Roller Coaster Tycoon 3D was awful as well. Just like in SimCity, important aspects like terraforming were removed, and ride customization options were severely limited. When this game was first announced I was excited, as there hadn't been an entry in the series in a few years and I was really looking forward to it. What we eventually got was something that had little thought put into it.

Lastly, there's 7th Saga, an RPG for the SNES. Before I go all out against this game, let me point out the positive aspects. The story is engaging, and multiple characters to choose from makes replay value high (if you can beat it). The graphics are also very well done, not using the chibi style that was common at the time, and utilizing faux 3D for battles. However, the game's difficulty is unrelenting to the point that the game is barely playable. The enemies are unbalanced for the points in the game at which they appear, making it easy for your character to get clobbered within minutes of starting a new game. Your stat increases upon leveling up are meager, making hours of level grinding necessary to get nearly anywhere. There's also the matter of the other characters whom you didn't select. They may suddenly attack you at random points, and are weighted to always be stronger than you. This is a good game if you want the ultimate RPG challenge, but to many people it's downright unplayable.

I am a connoisseur of terrible gaming and I've played many terrible games such as Action 52 and Superman 64, but I don't like to count those because, like everyone else, I tried those games after hearing they were terrible, not because I played it and though, "holy balls, this is just god awful..."

To me though, there was a game in my childhood that were just.

Unforgivable.

And that game?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b1/Bart_world_front.jpg

Oh my GOD was this game annoying. I remember the other bart game I had for NES, which was Bart versus the Space Mutants, which, I mean, yeah, isn't a good game, but when you're 5 you're just like, whatever I'm spraying stuff purple. I never did get to later levels but I didn't really care. No, this freaking piss poor excuse of a game, had bs mini challenges that either were impossible to understand or were just retarded minigames. Actually, all of them were retarded minigames but they were just... EUGH. I remember playing it right before I sold my NES *teardrops* but I STILL couldn't play it. So I guess it wasn't because I was a dumb little kid then. (I had no problem with beating Pokemon, DKL2 and SMB/SML either).

Ever play Brink?

Don't play Brink.

All of my problems with this game come down to the AI. It's absolutely terrible to the point where the single player campaigns are nearly unplayable because of it. All the AI knows how to do is run towards the enemy and shoot. They don't try to capture posts or help with objectives or ANYTHING. That's all for the player to do and it's damn near impossible because the enemy AI - you guessed it - constantly charges you while shooting.

Also the parkour elements are useless and the character models look like they have elephantitis.

No one's going to mention the game that caused the industry crash in '83/'84?

E.T. for the Atari 2600. I have actually played this game in some random convention that I was at, as it is a piece of video game history, whether people shy away from it or not. And yes, the game is as awful as it has been made out to be.

I always make sure a game is going to be at least decent before I buy it so I've never really bought any of the notorious games. I guess the worst would have to be the 2010 reboot of Medal of Honour. Campaign was somehow even more boring than the generic FPS campaign, but the multiplayer (which lets face it is the reason for buying) was even worse. Every map, spawn, killed by sniper, respawn and repeat.

I watched a LP of Superman 64 to see what it was like and it was actually horrible. I remember the ending being stupid as well so there wasn't much reward for getting to the end.

Probably going to have to go with SimCity for the DS. I had it once before, but I sold it. Recently I wanted to play it again... and I reminded myself why I sold it before. It's really... boring, plain and simple.

Sonic and the Secret Rings. As a modern Sonic supporter/preferr...er, and even one who thinks Sonic '06 is overhated, my god, that game was terrifying.

And yet... only for two reasons.

1. The soundtrack was unmemorable. Sonic has had a 99.9% perfect soundtrack... with that .1% ruined by this game. Seriously, even the THEME SONG is unmemorable. I don't care about the tune, don't know the words... it was just awful.

2, and worst of all: The control scheme. Just... my god. It was unplayable. The levels were only challenging because of how hard it was to play. The missions are pointless and infuriating. <<;

I didn't even know there was a SimCity for DS. I figure it's just as disappointing as the recent PC game, which I've already discussed. I have very fond memories of the series and I still play SimCity 4 when I'm bored. Just like with some of the recent Sonic games, it's such a shame when a good series goes bad. Thabkfully Sonic has had his share of good games lately, but SimCity just can't keep up.

Alpha Protocol.

Rented the game one time because it was interesting...and guess what? It wasn't. I was not impressed with the storyline and the use of weapons. I was expecting a great shooting game but...it didn't meet my expectations.

Street Fighter: The Movie.

This game was bad, from the graphics to the music, and animation to the effing controls themselves.

Honestly, this is a stain on Capcom's reputation - I remember playing it and wondering why the hell my dad ever bought it.

Quest 64 (http://i666.photobucket.com/albums/vv27/WolfDevastator/Quest64.png). I had high hopes for this game, because it was advertised as "the first RPG for the Nintendo Entertainment System." When my dad finally bought me this game, I was bored with it the next second. xD The enemies and bosses in this game were nearly impossible to get past, it didn't let you let save the game very often, and the graphics quality were very poor. The only good thing about this game was the battle system, which was kind of unique. Everything else were just awful.

Or maybe you're just really bad at playing games...

Uhm, let's see now... Spore's Galactic Adventures expansion pack is IMO the worst game I've ever played. The worlds you were supposed to explore look like !@#$%^*, level design was terrible, combat sucked and it was always the same boring thing you had to do. -.-;

I've actually searched this topic online, and was amused to read some of the most notably bad games as of late. One of the funniest was a review for Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade (Wii U) - "Patient suffered a psychotic breakdown while playing this game. No treatment possible." In summary, the game features a bunch of 'entertaining' and 'exciting' mini-games that are supposed to engage your entire family and friends and simply have a good time. Unfortunately for Nintendo, somewhere in the development stages someone must've done something terribly wrong, as critics have since deemed the game 'practically unplayable'.

A lot of the licenced games for the NES and SNES were particularly bad. One I had the misfortune of playing was the Lord of the Rings SNES game. The levels are huge and confusing. I accidentally let Frodo die, and guess what? When a character dies in this game, he is gone forever. You're basically screwed. Also, there's tons of glitches, and the game doesn't even advance past Moria (therefore no Lothlorien, Galadriel, or anything coming up afterwards). The Wizard of Oz game did that too. Dorothy had enough lives available to ensure that not happening to her, but the others...my word. Playing both was painful.

Another one I played was Deadly Towers. It's an RPG, but it's so confusing and certain parts of it are quite laughable. The manual's description of a "short sword" is a prime example of stupidity.

(I don't own an NES. I played these at a much older cousin's house.)

I'd have to say any game with a huge focus on a ridiculous metagame. Games like that are full of tier-obsessed, neckbearded mouthbreathers who will act like smug elitists and derive all of their happiness from winning that game. Those guys ruined Smash Bros. and Street Fighter for me (Though to be fair, I didn't really much like Smash Bros. in the first place, I just played it casually with my friends), and they almost ruined Pokemon for me.

As for actual terrible games, while ET is bad, it is hardly the worst, simply because back when it was made, the standard of games wasn't nearly as high and by today's standards the game is just boring.

Superman 64 is far worse than ET, because unlike ET, playing S64 does nothing but infuriate you and piss you off, requiring precision that is impossible due to awful controls.

A runner up would be Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing for PC. No AI, Terrible graphics, No collision detection, No physics engine.

Eh but put it this way. N64 was made a LONG time ago lol. so back then maybe games like superman 64 were good games because of the simple fact that we didn't have anything else. Now that we have ps3 and xbox and online mmos etc. When you go back to a system like n64 or atari you realize how little games back then had to offer.(well except fir n64 games like zelda. that had great storylines and tons to do)

Superman 64 is a horrible game because it was a rushed heap of junk. Hardware availability has very little to do with if a game is good or not. What do you mean games back in the day didn't have anything to offer? You're telling me, Q-Bert for the Atari 2600 wasn't entertaining for it's generation? Is Super Mario Bros 3 boring because it's 8-bit and put in a cartridge that only holds a few kilobytes of data? Or heck, why not the N64 itself that had Banjo Kazooie, Mario Party 2. Or, hey, why not the Pokemon originals from around the same era as N64? Trust me, there are a lot of bad, bad games that are made today on next gen consoles; I'll let this be a good example...

Well I'm not sure how many of you people know Angry Joe and his YouTube channel, but his latest video reviews this game and man... it's the first 1/10 rating I've ever seen a game get. So I did a bit of research on Google from other reviewers and it seems like this could possibly be placed as one of the worst game ever made. Seriously, the amount of mind-blowing low scores it has got is unbelievable - even it's Metascore is an outstanding 20! TWENTY!

Here are some reviews if you are interested; I highly recommend at least watching the first one just for lolz sake:

I usually just play games for the fun of it, rather than competing. I really hate it when some players just take a game too seriously and just ruins the entire game with almost no input from the developers. The only real metagame I really am interested in is competitive Pokémon battling, and even that isn't perfect.

As for the worst game ever, just marvel at this:

Oh wow. Oh. Wow. I just saw the video and my mind is blown. This game is absolutely horrible, there is no connection as to what happens at any stage in the game, random things happen at random times. Voice acting is not even acting it just sounds like they've woken up and been forced to speak. I don't even know what this game is. And the fact that they're considering making it a franchise, I have no idea how to respond to that.

Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded
Worst game I've ever played was Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded. It didn't look very good, especially coming right after Birth by Sleep and it was remade from the original cell phone game, meaning it had a very shaky basis to begin with. The story was fairly pointless and it didn't help that I'd already seen all of the important scenes before I played the game--to be fair to me, I didn't think the game would ever come out in any capacity I could play (since the game only worked on a certain model of cell phone in Japan before its DS remake). So even the crappy plot was completely unoriginal for me. Literally the only reason to play this game is for the secret scene at the end which explains what's going on in KH3D but I didn't even get that in-game because I didn't meet the requirements. I just watched it on Youtube and wallowed in disappointment.

I will admit that the boss battles were interesting. Each one generally ended up as a different genre. Like, the boss fight for Traverse Town was a sidescrolling platformer, the boss fight in Wonderland was a shootemup (I think?), and so on. But it was really gimmicky and it made all the other fights in the game really pointless and grindy because you weren't even levelling/powering yourself up for the sake of proving yourself to a boss because the boss battles were fought differently. (I think. I've taken considerable effort to forget about this game.) The neon/grid areas of the data world and their enemies were ridiculously repetitive and not fun in the slightest. I honestly don't remember a whole lot of the game beyond what I've mentioned so it wasn't memorable at all, either.

It's a game where, had it continued to be a one-off cell phone game for all of its existence, everything about it could be forgiven, but as a stand-alone DS game trying to live up to the standard that Days and BBS had set as far as spin-off games in the series, it fell so short. It might not be a bad game compared to some other games mentioned in this thread but it was terrible compared to everything else in its series even to this day.

Bit Trip Runner
The only other game that makes me livid to think about because I disliked it so much is Bit Trip Runner. It was a reaction memorization game masquerading as a rhythm game. The game looks great, but that's about all that I can praise about it. It pretends to be rhythm based but I'd found that I played just as well with the sound off compared to on and the jumps/dodges/blocks didn't match up to the beat very often anyway. The music (and the beat, iirc) isn't the same every time you play a level, either, so I don't know where they get off calling it a rhythm game. The game was so hectic and chaotic in what it wanted you to do that it often felt like it was punishing you for learning your cues.

For example, there are these little trampolines you can jump on eventually that boost you up a little bit. The first few times you come across it, they put points or a "power up" (just adds more instruments/melody to the bgm) in a position where you'll only grab it if you jump from the trampoline. Alright, so you learn to jump on the trampolines whenever you see them... except eventually when you jump ON the trampolines instead of OVER them, you get launched into a hole. Sometimes, they mix these up even on the same level so you literally have no choice but to mess up once and then memorize how they want you to tackle each one. It happens with many of the different obstacles, too, so it doesn't feel like you're getting better at the game or learning it as you go along. It's not like you can when game constants are never actually constant.

The icing on the cake is that the game is designed to be unforgiving. You mess up even once, whether you're at the very beginning of a track or just before the end, it sends you back to the very beginning. It's almost impossible to get through something on your first try because it throws so many curve balls at you. Every time you start a new level, you practically have to completely untrain all your reactions. It wouldn't be so bad if you checkpointed or something every time you grabbed one of the four power ups (or just reached a certain point in the level), but you start from the BEGINNING. So longer levels (some get up to 2 or 3 minutes, I think) become agonizing as you end up having to memorize every single section of the song and you have to get the timing almost exactly right each time because if you don't, you're gonna waste that whole 2 minutes over again until you get it PERFECT every time. Changing the difficulty from Normal/Hard down to Easy doesn't help either--literally all that does is take away the points you get as you go through the level and all those do is give you bonus levels for getting all of them. If anything, taking them away in Easy mode makes it more confusing because you no longer have hints ahead of you showing you the way you should be going through the level. (It makes the screen look a little less cluttered but it's not like it's that much easier.)

I'm not very good at platforms--I won't try to hide that fact at all--so already I went into the game at a disadvantage but there was just no leeway whatsoever in this game and I don't think I've ever played something so frustrating in my life. Even finishing a level that's taken forever never felt satisfying: I'd just feel angry with myself for taking so long to memorize the exact timing and progression of every button press. I'd be okay with it if that's how they marketed the game (not that anyone would want it if they did) but the fact that they push it as a rhythm game when it really doesn't work as one just makes it all the more frustrating.

Sonic and the Secret Rings. As a modern Sonic supporter/preferr...er, and even one who thinks Sonic '06 is overhated, my god, that game was terrifying.


I do have to agree with you. For all the pure disaster games in modern history (E.T., Superman 64, Ride to Hell Retribution). Sonic 06' might actually be the least of these. I feel the reason it receives so much hate though is because it dragged down a beloved character down with it. Sonic has never really recovered since 06'.

I think another reason, is that from a potential standpoint, it had some really cool things going for it. Some of the locales in the game could of been really cool if more time was spent developing them. (Crisis City and Kingdom Valley come to mind.) It had a wonderful soundtrack (http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNtWrtDfz70), and a plot that could of worked provided they took some time to iron out the kinks. It even had some cool ideas when it came to Sonic's movepool (the different coloured shoes), and Silver's gameplay could of been very interesting provided they built off what they already had. Even the villian is pretty cool in concept.

However, in all these aspects, it just falls short. Gameplay is stunted and buggy, sometimes to the point of nearly breaking the game, or making it far harder then it should be to do something simple (The Silver Boss fight comes up to mind almost instantly). The hub world feels incomplete and empty, and far too large. Sidequests feel tacked on. The Story feels rushed and creates plenty of plot holes. The graphics are meh at best (even for the time of release). To sum it up most easily: The game feels, and probally was, unfinished. Leaving a very empty feeling to a game that was (as stated previously) supposed to be a relaunch of the franchise.

Quite a few people are mentioning Sonic 2006. I just want to say one thing. I legitimately thought that was a good game. But a bad game I can think of...
People are gonna hate me for saying this, but, Pokemon Heart Gold / Soul Silver.

Mercenaries 2. I was massively disappointed by this, considering how good the original Mercenaries was. There wasn't that many missions, not many people to capture, it felt like a last minute thing which took them nearly 5 years to complete. What a waste.

I http://janaiblog.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/kefka_hate1.jpg The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. I'm not much of a fan of the T.V. show, but my brother picked up a copy. It just makes me want to throw up in my mouth. The AI... just.....Ugh. The graphics are soooooo dull. Honestly, I want to chuck it in a fire.

Crystal's Pony Tale for the Sega Genesis.

It's a mess. A malicious, obnoxious, horrible-yet-adorable mess.

Neigh.

I recently played the new Tomb Raider game. It sucked. They really ruined Lara and took all the badass out of her.

My best friend's older sister had the Spice World video game because she liked the Spice Girls as a kid. She hates the game so much. She showed me the ROM, and how awful it was! She claims it actually made her lose interest in the Spice Girls - she sold most of her Spice Girls merchandise at a yard sale when she was 10 (she's 22 now). She didn't sell the disc - she outright destroyed it. If you want to know what the game is like, it features ugly renditions of the girls (when I saw Geri Halliwell dance, I couldn't unsee it). There is a library of only five songs (despite the first two albums having 20 songs altogether), and the samples include less than half of the songs' content. There is NO replay value - my friend's sister finished it in fifteen minutes.

The best N64 game in my opinion is Super Mario 64, which shorts to SM64.
The worst N64 game in my opinion is Superman 64, which also shorts to SM64.
It's a bit freaky, don't you think?

Honestly, this is a stain on Capcom's reputation - I remember playing it and wondering why the hell my dad ever bought it.

A stain on Capcom's reputation is why they decided it would be fine to leave the game fanchise that made them popular for dead and decided hey let's do no more Megaman and maybe sell him to nintend (please do) so we have more time to put on-disc DLC and make more (epic) games like SFxT (IMO I loved SFxT because it just put 2 great fighting franchises into one game)

I hate one game in this world more than any....

The... Elder... Scrolls...

Oblivion.

it never met up to the expectations that Morrowind gave us it wass ridiculously easy (so is Skyrim) and the voice acting it was like one audio file for every sentence I swear most of the people in that game were going through puberty seriously one minute he has a deep voice then the next its seemed very cheerful WTF!

Skyrim was also bad in my opinion not because of the bugs but just eurgh I am gonna get bashed for this but it didn't meet the expectations Morrowind left for it aswell the story was linear you couldn't kill important NPC's (wich you can in Morrowind wrecking the story line completely) and the only good thing were the graphics but soon after Skyrim's release we had Farcry 3 come out and it's graphics basically overtook SKyrim so meh and then their's SKYRIM itself c'mon it didn't even have all the proper towns that one modder saw and decided to add them (thanks oranges)

but TESO seems alright from what... I have.... not played

then again im very biased when I was 6 the first game I played was morrowind so yeah and I have modded Morrowind with 80 gigabytes so it's graphics are better than Skyrims and the story line was better


Oblivion 5/10
Skyrim 7/10
Morrowind 10/10 it's the greatest game I have ever played alongside Chrono Trigger (made by FF and DQ)
