Top 10 Worst Video Games of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Desert Bus

Every single one of these games has at least playability! Superman 64 was bad, ET was horrible, Action 52 was mediocre, but way too much, Bubsy 3D felt like it wasn't finished, Call of Duty isn't bad, it's just the fan base of it, Wand of Gamelon and Sonic '06 were poorly designed and full of bad aspects, but at least they had appeal. Plumbers Don't Wear Ties was so bad, it shouldn't even have counted as a game and Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing had no rules.

But Desert Bus was ground breaking. Technically it wasn't a real game, because it was actually just a mini game on a game called Penn and Teller's: Smoke and Mirrors. There's NO pause button, so you can't go and take a poop or go and eat dinner in another room. Unlike the Terminator, you cannot hold the button down and leave it there because the bus swerves to the right and then the truck tows you ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE START! Seriously, why couldn't the truck just pull you out of the sand? Why couldn't it save the game. ...more - BlazikenBro

Who... The heck... Thought that THIS was a good idea for a game? The only redeeming factor I can see in it is that there aren't any whiny kids screaming in the background, but aside from that... GOD. You're driving a bus at 45 mph from Tucson to Las Vegas in REAL TIME, and at no point can you stop playing because the bus veers slightly to the right, so it will crash on the side of the road (which is completely lacking in scenery), and you'll have to get towed AALL the way back to Tucson, also in real time. Some bad games are at least somewhat playable for at least a few seconds, but Desert Bus has absolutely NOTHING going for it. It has no redeeming factors. It has absolutely no quality. It is the worst game of all time. - scienceisfun42

The aim of this game is to get from Tucson, Arizona from Las Vegas, Nevada. It takes 8 hours just to get back and forth and you only get a point just for going. What's worse if you spin out of control into the gravel on the side of the road you have to wait for a tow truck to come to take you back to the start. You can't pause the game, there aren't any cars that come towards you, there are no passengers in the back and you can only go 45 miles per hour. Now that it is what I call the worst game in all mankind!

22Flappy Bird

Yeah, you're right! Crappy Bird was a complete ripoff from Jetpack Joyride. They probably got it from the vehicle "Profit Bird". Which is why a ripoff. - airplain313

This game is highly addictive but for all the wrong reasons. The graphics were stolen from super Mario on the NES, it's repetitive and a tons of other things, I could go in forever but you get the idea. I also heard the this game caused people to commit suicide I don't know if that's true

This game has horrible graphics, and the lags are ridiculous. The bird falls way too fast.

They stole Mario's pipes.

23Hong Kong 97

I'm happy to see this is down lower, because it looks to me like not many people know about it. That's a good thing. Do not ever try to play it, let alone get a copy. (If one even exists) you will want to kill yourself. I'm not kidding. The one song in the entire game is meant for torture. It will get stuck in your head, and the song is awful

When you start the game, there is a message from the developers that says: "Games wanted! We will sell your original S-NES games. (1/3 of the gross profit will be yours). We welcome games of any kind so please send us your floppy. We will contact you after careful considerations. Would you like to sell our products at your store? We are looking for dealers worldwide. We will heavily discount orders for more than 50 pieces. Please ask us for details". This is just a failed attempt at advertising themselves.

This is the story of Hong Kong 97:

The year 1997 has arrived. A herd of ugly reds are rushing from the mainland. Crime rate skyrockeded! Hong Kong is ruined! Therefore, the Hong Kong government called Bruce Lee's relative "Chin" for the massacre of the reds. Chin is a killer machine. Wipe out all 1.2 billion of the red communists! However, in mainland China there was a secret project in progress! A project to transform the deceased Tong Shau Ping ...more

This game is from 1995 Not 1997, Second of all the game sucks. Third thing is They use the word a herd of ugly reds. Fourth is I'm glad Angry Video Game Nerd Reviewed this game. I think this was the worst Super Nintendo Game of the mid 1990's

It shows a man that legit killed himself as the Game Over screen. That alone makes the game horrible. - djpenquin999

24World of Warcraft

I am honestly not surprised to see World of Warcraft on this list at all. Ever since patch 4.1 (In my belief, others may see it differently) World of Warcraft has been in a downward spiral getting ready to crash at any moment. Although it had it's time in the spotlight, nowadays WoW is a washed up version of what it used to be. WoW used to be a game where players would work hard in order to accomplish a goal and it used to make you want to explore what secrets there were in the world. Now its a giant grindfest for valor points, raid finder gear, PvP gear, and daily quests. There is no challenge anymore in WoW, simply put it is now, "Ok give us 15 dollars, go grind all your dailies and vp. " This applies even to legendary items now and people do not know how rare legendaries used to be nowadays because of the fact that you can get legendary items from simply grinding normal raids. I have only ever seen one person with Atiesh EVER and only one person with the Black Qiraj ...more

Seriously, I'm sure it's fun, but for cryin out loud!
WOW is the worst influence on gaming EVER!
There are people who literally play for 3 days stopping only to go to the toilet and eat their pre-made food, not even to go to sleep.
And didn't someone commit suicide because their character was lost in a bug?!

I'm amazed people still play this game. When WOW first launched it was simply amazing. It was the MMORPG everyone was waiting for. Now it's just a stale repetitive game, with a player base made up of mostly obnoxious anti social players with addictive personalities -- and Asian gold farmers.

26Ninjabread Man

It sucks because it has 4 levels and weird controls like move your wii nunchuck to jump and you know what it's a horrible game, it shouldn't even be a game

Most of these terrible games would be good if they were made by valve or Nintendo, at least they know what they're doing. - Harri666

This game is the shortest game I have ever played. It is not the worst but it's up there. The graphics suck, the game sucks, the music sucks, everything sucks in this. And yet this game is only 87 on this list, but Sonic 06 is somehow in the 10 spot! Sonic 06 is like 50 times more fun than Ninjabreadman. Plus Ninjabreadman is made on the exact same engine as Sonic 06. Think about that for a moment.

What a failure in gaming history should be number 6

27Five Nights at Freddy's

This is not the worst game ever. Why? IT BARELY COUNTS AS A GAME. This disgrace to gaming "tries" to be a survival horror game. But due to the games’ popularity, I’ve seen the jump scares a hundred times before I even played the game. Jump scares are the worst form of horror, may I add. Second, the “game play”, if you can even call it that. Here’s an accurate summary of the “game play”. You sit. Two minutes later, you close a door and open it again shortly after. A minute later, you close that door again. Sometimes you look through a security camera. They tried to give this game a creepy atmosphere, but I saw right through its disguise. It’s a WAITING SIMULATOR dressed as a horror game. There’s nothing else but nothingness. The “characters” have literally no personality, there’s no plot, just vague scraps of information people think are lore (keyword: THINK), there’s not even any music besides ambient fuzz and a licensed song. It’s almost like the ...more

I think that fnaf was better before it was created! Think about it! People are making naked girl versions of all the fnaf characters and making them have sex! I remember when life was awesome, beautiful and peaceful before this game was created then once it was created it got overrated and scott became famous just because he created one stupid game! How is it even popular? Its just like any other horror game. THIS GAME IS NOT GOOD OR SPECIAL IT SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 5

This game's not supposed to be on this list. I understand other's opinions, but in my opinion, I would take this off. I like this game, but it's not one of the funnest games of all time. It could be one of the most creative ideas, but not in fun. The only thing bad about this game is just the perverted fan art.

Oh yes get this to top 10

28Dark Castle

This is a huge rip-off of Donkey Kong, and Castlevania combined. The controls are the worst controls I have experienced on a Sega Genesis so far.

One of the most broken games of all time. - htoutlaws2012

And I thought donkey kong was bad

Worst... Sega Genesis... game... EVER!

30M&Ms Kart Racing

WOAH I was just thinking I was gonna add this game to the list at 15 and then I SAW IT! It's actually the worst thing anything has ever had to do with anything- EVER! (Not including bin laden, crabsticks and I Got A Rocket. Man that show sucked. )

I can date back to my 6th birthday in 2007 I got a Wii with Wii Sports which I had a very fun time with and I also got this game and even at the age of 6 I knew this game sucked because the controls were terrible I almost never touched this game again Thank goodness Mario Kart Wii came out and was amazing, I cannot recommend M&M's Kart Racing to anyone

What next, Candy Corns Kart Racing? Lucky Captain Rabbit King Nuggets Kart Racing? Mutant Asparagus Kart Racing? Canterbury Tales Kart Racing? Zwuntripitrycrapizazz Kart Racing (a zwuntripitrycrapizazz is a pie-throwing device disguised as an innocent-looking birthday present)? Laughing Joking Numbnuts Kart Racing? Pond Scum Kart Racing?

This has to be the most boring racing game of all time.

31Sonic 2006

Once you finally get to the LAST level, there is a bad bug when the whole game will break at the end and it will forget everything at the very last level!

Those who say "so bad it's on here twice," that tends to happen a lot on many lists.

The first comment makes me like what!

This was already on the list at 5 or something

33Cheetahmen II

This game is so bad, you can't even finish it because of some stupid programing error that causes the game to get stuck after you beat the 4th level boss.

Anyone who can get to the gameplay of this game, when you turn it on, please tell us how by putting your cmment in here, I want to play this game to experience how bad it is, but I can't seem to play the game, it just loops the title screen over again.

This game should be on the top of the list mainly for its unchanging to very bad gameplay, glitches, and rehashed music.

This pearl of society deserve to be at least in the top 10.

34Zelda's Adventure

The game is overpriced and you can only hold one weapon. It takes forever for the screen to load. When you buy stuff in other Zelda games you go select the items on the item screen. In Zelda's adventure you have to bring up the menu screen, select the rubies, pick the item you want and you get your item and it takes too long. It's better than link the faces of evil and Zelda the wand of gamelon but not by a whole lot. I wouldn't recommend buying this game.

This crazy traveshamockery is one of three Zelda CDi joke games too many. What were the Laughing Joking Numbnuts who gave us this dumb farce thinking... No, What's on second!

35SQIJ!! (ZX Spectrum)

Ok people, be real. Which would you rather play:

An open world where you can create anything you want in blocky 3D graphics.
OR
A game that's so glitchy you literally can't do anything. Not even move. If you hack it so you can move, you die when you exit the level and the game crashes.

Hard decision, I know.

This game is truly an experience. It allows you to look deep into your soul, and realize what has to be done. You must destroy every last surviving copy of this game- wipe it from existence with the burning flames of a thousand suns. Call all to curse upon its grave-...but realize that you can't do any of that because you can't move. - poncho531

Oh my god YES! When I first read about SQUIJ, I couldn't stop laughing, it seemed like the funniest game ever. But not being able to do anything gets boring after about a minute. Seriously. None, and I mean NONE of the controls work. And if you modify the code so that they do, the game crashes when you try to leave the starting room. Its only funny if you don't play it.

Well, you can't move. That's it. - Yatagarasu

36Finding Nemo

I have this game and I got it for the Gamecube when I was around 5 or 6 maybe younger. It is SO boring and although it does have both an accurate storyline that does portray what happens in the movie and some of the cutscenes are from the movie its self, it just isn't the game people would want to play. Also, the movie may seem action-packed but the only problem is, it's too, dunno how to put this, movie-ish for a game to be made out of it. Most of the levels are repetitive and most don't even happen in the storyline. Although the situations happen in the movie its self, the levels they make off of that part are not too accurate. - username34

I love this game it really defines next gen gaming

I got this game on PS2. The graphics are alright for PlayStation 2 but my problems are that its boring and hard. I used to get stuck on that minefield level and now I'm up to the submarine level and it's hard and boring I played for about 34 minutes straight just to find one of the last switches and up to the puzzle part I just switched it off

I Love this game

37I Wanna Be the Guy

Hey denferok it's your least favorite guy game on the list

On a more serious note, I do SEE how people would dislike this, but hey, it's not as bad as it's position on this list may tell, it's actually a kinda decent adventure game. Sure, it crashes a TON (and by that I mean like every 15 seconds or so) and the engine works poorly (at least when compared to more refined guy games). There's also many, many traps, but hey, even though they may be unfair at first, you can BEAR them and it's not like there are traps like every 2 seconds. If people who voted for this actually had experience playing guy games, they'd reconsider this.

But hey, it's just an opinion. Just keep scrolling if you like. - letcreate123

This is supposed to be a rage game. NO offense, but I enjoy this game. - shawnmccaul22

39Mario Is Missing!

This is one of those "educational" games. You see Mario getting kidnapped by getting a bag thrown over him? Is there a hole in the bottom? No! Because he is in the bag! That's only the title screen! You play as Lugi but he couldn't even get in the title! He gets his own "game" and can't even be in the title! The goal is to get items from around the world and take back to their rightful places because the Koopa took them. King Kong is one of the things you take back to NY. You get items from "money bags". Kong's picture makes him look 1500 feet tall! What?!? It's too bad to go on about. It's all I can take.

What the hell happened to Mario somebody do something! Alert the authorities, ring the bells, light the beacon and god help us all in such time of disarray!

It should be called luigi is missing because you can play as luigi, Mario owns the whole universe doesn't he? Mario thinks its all about him

Luigi you idiot look behind you

40Poptropica

Poptropica is horrible! Cheesy controls, usually characters, and worst of all, stupid story's. It's weird that they tell what age you are, who cares about ages! They run slow too! If a person say you should play poptropica, what ever you do, say NO!

This is a great game for kids and young adults, rather than tricking cal of duty.

This is so boring and repetitive! All you do is go through the same island with different skins over and over again, and the servers are broken. In elementary school all anyone did was play this, and when we played together, most of the time, both of us won or both of us lost. It sucks.

This game was made by the same person who made those books Diary of a Complainer Boy
