Top 10 Worst Video Games of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Superman 64

I've heard people note E.T. The Extra Terrestrial as the worst game ever made. It's not. E.T. is just forgettable. It isn't harmful. Just boring. I also hear people calling THIS the worst game ever made. It is. E.T. is boring and forgettable. This is broken and unplayable. I have never seen a game be so awful in everything it tried to do. There are games like Sonic 06 where you can master it and make it look like your average Sonic game. But, I don't think ANYONE can get enough practice or patience to master THIS piece of garbage. Anyone who has deserves an award, because that takes a LOT! If I did a review on this game, I would definitely give it a 0/10. NOTHING good comes out of this experience.

Superman 64 is the bane of the DC gaming enterprises. Yes, even worse than Aquaman. The very first stage is a borage of rings that you have to fly through, but is extremely difficult because the controls are horrendous. Once you manage to get through the rings, the on-screen instructions flash for a split-second. You need to be a speed-reader in order to comprehend what was just displayed. Once you piece together what to do with those two cars from context clues, guess what? Another ring maze. There are a total of FIVE ring mazes in the first stage alone! Second stage? Glitchtastic. You WILL fall through the floor or go through a wall. And after that, oh yeah! MORE RINGS. You are inundated with ring flying throughout the entire game. It's basically a series of unimaginative mini-games and flying through rings. This tedious, boring, bland game is joyless and barren of any entertainment value. And I'll be honest with you. I never made it past the fourth stage. Most people after the ...more

The graphics are bad, the controls are atrocious, the level design is unfinished and uninspired, the concept is laughable, the gameplay has a seemingly endless amount of bugs and glitches, and 95% of the time you are struggling to fly through rings in such a limited amount of time. Also, what you're doing when you're not flying through wings is completely unreasonable, literally everything explodes and the explosions can hurt Superman even if the only thing that hurts him is Kryptonite.

Having only played this on an N64 emulator after reading all the negative hype it gets: it isn't really that bad. There are current-gen games less fun and versatile (and most handheld games are too), and the ring minigame is actually sort of fun if you like flying. My only complaint, recognizing that I didn't actually pay for this game (if I had I'd probably sing a different tune) is that mechanics and goals weren't explained well enough. The stages between flying levels are nearly impossible if you're not sure what you're supposed to be doing.

2 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

This game is horrible because 1. The essential instructions needed to understand any part of the game (like the enemies, or how to play) were inside the cartridge box, which at the time the game was released the box was thrown away immediately 2. The graphics were horrible 3. You fell into a pit every new area you traveled into and 4. It was glitchy. Also, the game was bad for the makers because for some reason, they made more game copies then there were consoles to play it on. What genius came up with that? Some people say this game even call the Video Game Crash of the 1980s, but although it isn't true, it did help cause it, with lots of other bad games and other various factors.

This isn't the worst video game in general, It's no where near being the worst video game in general. This is the worst video game in reputation standards. The reason why it's usually considered to be the worst video game ever made was because this game nearly DESTROYED the video game industry (a.k.a If Nintendo didn't make the NES, the video games we have today would be non - existent because of this piece of crap). This game isn't widely considered the worst game ever because of the game itself. It's widely considered the worst game ever because of ALL the enormous damage it has done. To me, the worst video games in general are either "The Tiger Electronic Games", "Crazy Bus / Desert Bus", "Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing", "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," or "Hong Kong 97".

This is one of those games made for the Atari 2600 that not only caused the infamous 1983 video game crash, but it heavily affected the video game industry in general and many other rushed video games soon followed. Don't know what I mean? Games like Sonic '06 followed in this game's footsteps in terms of rushing development in video games. The history behind this game is interesting, but also tragic. A man named Howard Scott Warshaw, known for creating the Atari 2600 game Yars' Revenge, was given a task to make the video game to E.T., a film that hit big in 1982. He was then only given 5 weeks to complete the game before it reached the holiday 1982 deadline. Only prototype copies were released as a result, and it heavily affected Warshaw's career. Overall, it's an abysmal game that resulted in the Great Depression of the gaming industry.

This game was a major flop. It factored into the big video game crash of 1983, which almost destroyed the industry as a whole. Even though I don't own the game, I know it was one of the worst, if not THE worst games of all time. I was pushed out of the door so people could get it by Christmas. A lot of copies of this game are in a landfill somewhere because they could not sell the game. Fortunately for all of us gamers, Nintendo they revived the industry as a whole by releasing the NES, along with Super Mario Bros.

3 Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing

The thing about Big Rigs: Over The Road Raving, is that unlike every other game on this list, you seriously can't play it. In Big Rigs, it is literally impossible to lose. Your opponent is frozen solid at the starting line, making you win by default. Along with that, the game is unfinished. Your truck is a ghost that can go through everything, you can drive up 90 degree angle hills without losing any speed, and you can drive out of boundaries without any effort. And even if the game had no glitches, you still wouldn't want to play it. The tracks are uninteresting, there's no different stats for the trucks you drive, and there's no music other than the sound of your engine. Although "You're Winner", Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing "Is Loser".

I made my own list, which has this game at #8 due to being a guilty pleasure of epic proportions, but that doesn't excuse all the stuff in this game at... EXISTS. Gravity...what's that? Collision detection = nonexistent. Get lost, and end up in a void of nothing! Sick of game being hard and difficult, and, you know, games? Well, the AI in this game does nothing, so explore around this glitchy, programmed-in-two-days game that shouldn't be put in a dumpster, but should be either ignored, or you can just mess around with all the different way to break the game and have fun! It's like a party with only you invited due to everything being dumb, and I love it so much! But it's still a monstrosity.

This game should be #1 of "The Worst Video Game In The History". But no, other game are worse than this. Anyway, let's talk about the box first, It's a lie. And the menu, Select truck mistaken into car. And finally, the gameplay. You play start with the truck you chose. You can get through houses and buildings. You also go to the mountains without slow you down, really? This against collision detection law! Anyway, you always win, even the latest version when other truck can move to race. When it almost come to the finish line, it stops. And what happens when you finish race in 1st place? "You're winner! " caption appears. A mispelled victory caption is unacceptable. When you drive backward, you go faster than forward. And when you go backward fast enough, you go to an empty space that make you lost and can't find the way out. And finally, the most unacceptable ingredient for the game that is required. That is... Where is the challenge? No challenge, no fun. Why are they have to sell ...more

How is this only #10? At least the above games have rules, objectives, a PURPOSE. This game is what the 0.01 Alpha of a game should be. There is no challenge whatsoever. Can't stay on the road? No problem, you just pass through everything and go up 90 degree slopes no problem. Can't cope with stop momentum? You come to an instant halt when you let go of the up/down arrows? Got lost SOMEHOW? Well, then there's a dimension of nothingness if you go slightly off course. Tired of not being surprised because the back of the box tells you all about the game? You get NOTHING advertised on the back of the box. Throw in extremely non-varied tracks and vehicles, constant crashing, an AI that does NOTHING and glitches galore, and you get the worst game of all time. At least Bubsy 3D, Superman 64, ET and Shaq Fu, you could WIN and LOSE. There was CHALLENGE, RULES, OBJECTIVES. I repeat the question. HOW IS THIS ONLY AT 10TH PLACE?!?!?

4 Bubsy 3D

This game should be number one. It is without a doubt, the worst video game of all time. It's so bad that it makes Superman 64 look like Super Mario Bros. 2. The graphics are terrible. Being made in the 90s is no excuse, either. There were 3D games made before this that were much better. I will admit: Bubsy wasn't really anything special in the first place, but it was much better than this. The graphics and colors are all too bright, and the designs are terrible. You would get much more out of staring at a dull wall. The controls are terrible as well. You know how hard it is to use chopsticks for the first time? This is how horrible the controls are. Not to mention Bubsy's voice is so annoying. He sounds like Dot Warner on her period.

It claims to have the "Gold X Award" yet it is easily the worst video game of the 90s. The plot is virtually nonexistent. It has a goal that the characters must achieve, but after it is set up nothing happens. It would be no exaggeration to say that this is 85% filler. It's just unfunny joke after unfunny joke after pointless challenge after unfunny joke. That's my second biggest problem: None of the jokes are funny. It makes the already tedious filler even more tedious to sit through. Obnoxious stereotype references, repetitive slapstick we've seen a million times before, etc. The low point of the game has to be the gameplay. It feels like the cheesy speech. It has the worst vocals of any video game ever. Add that to historical inaccuracies, terrible characters, and writers who don't think through their implications...

If you ask me, even the Magnavox odyssey has better graphics than this, and it's just a bunch of squares on a T.V.. This thing is like Dex Dogtective from Foodfight took the biggest crap in history and digging through the turds to find this creature so he could sell it for $300 a pop. The controls are like trying to eat ravioli using a single chopstick. And Bubsy's voice, ohh that voice. It is totally irritating. I'm not talking
" Freddy Krueger nails on a chalkboard" irritating, I'm talking " Rubbing a ballon while listening to random foreign people singing Justin Bieber in different languages through a megaphone" irritating.

The whole Bubsy series suck. When Bubsy asks "What can possibly go wrong? " My answer is "Everything is wrong". Everything is wrong about Bubsy. The awful exterior appearance. The games aren't fun. Even the newest Bubsy game didn't make the series bounce back. I think it's better for the franchise to stay dead. For every bad game I hear about, it's best to avoid them at all costs. Watch YouTube reviews and they'll explain why the game is bad.

5 Action 52

With games that crash, hideous jumping controls, random characters, microscopic sprites, a mass array of horrible space shooters, dying in mid-air, problems with proportion, misleading titles, misleading power-ups, embarrassing weapons, seizure inducing backgrounds, lack of enemies, games you can't win, games you can't lose, games that make no sense whatsoever.

That's what the Angry Video Game Nerd said about this game! Why is it only number 16!? The top 10 should be E. T, Superman 64, Big Rigs Over The Road Racing, Plumbers Don't Wear Ties, Sonic '06, Action 52, The Wand of Gamelon, Custer's Revenge, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Bubsy 3D!

And do you know what makes this game the most deserving of the Top 10? It was $199 dollars! Have you ever seen a new game cost THAT MUCH!? You might as well just shred up that money or anything else really! Doing ANYTHING else with $199, especially donating it would be a much better idea than getting this pile of dump!

Aside from maybe Meong (an at least playable memory game) and Dam Busters, all 52 games are trash. There are games you can't win (underground), games you can't loose (shooting gallery), games where the boss doesn't appear (Star Evil), and games that are self-conscious about how bad they are, so they don't load (Alfred N The Fettuc... ? And Jigsaw). There are also games that make your eyes and ears bleed (Critical Bypass), games that have the most awkward jump ever (Ooze), games that make no logical sense (all of them), and games that have changing titles (Haunted Halls, Operation Full Moon, Bubblegum Rossie). Let's not forget the games where the weapon is completely embarrassing (Lollipops), or the games that you can't see a thing (Crazy Shuffle), or the games that consistently crash (all of them), or the games with pathetic enemies (Fuzz Power), or the games that make you want to shove nails into your spleen (again, all of them).

You have to give this game a bit of a pass. The NES was a console that came out in 1985 and making 52 games that work perfectly fine on one single cartridge for a gaming system that old was just impossible. However, I still can't fully give it credit because it's the Game Developers' for picking a number that big. If there was only 26 games, then maybe this could've been better.

How is this lower than Minecraft?! Let alone lower than #1?!

The game has:

- Horrible graphics
- Bad music
- A mass array of terrible scrolling shooters
- Awful controls
- Sending you back to level 1 when you win or crashing
- 2 games that won't even work on most of the cartridges sold
- A price of $199!
- Quality worse than E.T. on the Atari 2600

Someone already listed all the games, so I suggest you look at that.

6 Custer's Revenge

This is the stupidest, most sickening game on Atari. Basically, the objective of the game is to control General Custer (who has a visible pixelated erection, you read this right) and make sure you save your thing-a-ding from getting scewered with an arrow (I know that sounds wrong, but pretend you didn't read it) just so you can have sex with a Native-American woman tied to a pole. How wrong does this seem, guys? Pretty wrong. If you think the gameplay alone is bad, just look at the instructions that come with the game. Wow, Atari. I know it's an adult game, but why would they let it even go through and actually have copies? The most sickening Atari game in the world, ever. Believe me when I warn you, do not, I repeat, DO NOT play this game. You're gonna wish you didn't.

It's a good thing that games like this are never being made on actual game consoles. That's because pornographic games have and always will be terrible. Apparently, way back in the early 80s, there was a lot of people who wanted to make video games for the Atari 2600, including a porn company, Mystique. They created various porn games for the system, such as the more infamous one, "Custer's Revenge". Just the box art of the game is enough to qualify as offensive. The woman is drawn realistically, but Custer is drawn like a cartoon character. The game itself... hoooo boy. You play as a naked Custer, whose goal is to get over to a Native American woman tied to a cactus, avoid arrows, and... screw her. That's it. I can't imagine how both racist and sexist this is. And yet, I can't imagine how a dirty old man's dream made it onto Atari 2600 consoles.

Let me explain why this is the worst by explaining why the other games aren't.
Minecraft - Love it or hate it, there is a reason it is getting so popular.
Sonic 06 - Take away the glitches and it isn't terrible.
Big Rigs - Same as Sonic 06.
Call of Duty - Don't get me wrong, I dislike Call of Duty. But they are still well made games.
Now let us look at Custer's Revenge. The entire point is racism and sexism. You don't even do anything! The only reason anyone would publish this was to show how racist they R. It's sickening. It really is.

This game is so bad I'd rather puke then eat my own vomit, then puke again instead of playing this atrocity. I'd call this game a piece of garbage but even that's being too generous. I think even calling it a game is a stretch since it's basically unplayable. I've played some really bad games in my life but this is BY FAR the worst of the worst. This game makes Superman 64 look like gold.

7 Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Birds that crap out huge dog turds, ladies that run at the speed of sound and crash into you, young boys that use a slingshot against you, guys that put bombs in your way, spiders that descend form trees, bees that fly around and a completely useless cane that literally doesn't hurt anything make this game one of the worst games ever. When you transform into Hyde, you start shooting balls at brains with legs, baby demons and other weird monsters, but when you reach the end ¬°SURPRISE! a lightning bolt strikes you and you die. What a fantastic game (sarcasm intended).

As Jekyll, you can't hit anything and every person on the street is out to kill you. I especially hate that if a bomb is dropped, even if you're on the other side of the screen, it takes half your health. As Hyde, your weapon actually kills things, but the shot is never straight. Finally, If you walk a step more than when you died as Jekyll, lightning strikes and kills you. This game blows on its own nipples. As if the AVGN would say, I would rather live under an outhouse and eat nothing but dead bats and piles of crap.

The controls here are sluggish. Dr. Jekyll's cane has zero uses except for killing bees and defusing bombs. When he becomes Mr. Hyde, he's able to punch and use the psycho-wave to kill the enemies and get his stress down. However, the projectile fires out in an unpredictable pattern, making it difficult to hit anything with, plus, Dr. Jekyll moves and jumps really slow, making the game tedious to play. Unlike the Japanese version, the North American version has fewer levels (two levels removed from the Japanese version were replaced with repeats of earlier levels) and the level order was shuffled around. The barrels in level 6 are completely random. The blast radius of the bombs and how much damage/stress they give to Jekyll seems completely random. Coins can only be collected when playing as Hyde (at least in the North American version) and their only purpose is to bribe the tone deaf Elena McCowen to shut up. As quoted from the Angry Video Game Nerd: "ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON, you ...more

Even LJN made better games, I think Bandai is a bad version of LJN, chances are they have the same founder/employees. Either way, LJN hasn't made games broken like this. But I think it's somewhat better than a few NES games, though it's hard to compare since it's for different reasons.

8 Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

Plumbers Don't Wear Ties is basically a movie with a menu every five-or-so minutes to affect the choices of the characters. I'm not sure if you would even CLASSIFY it as a movie, because everything after the opening cutscene is a picture, yet The box classifies it as a FMV (Full Motion Video). Random filters are applied everywhere for no reason, and the characters have no personalities whatsoever. The story doesn't make much sense, either. What's even worse is that it PDWT was released for the Panasonic 3DO, a $700 (at the time, adjusted for inflation in 2014 would be $1,149.64) system that had very few good games. Unless you're a collector, don't ever buy this game.

No. 1 puh-lease! This failure of an excuse of a video game is indescribably TERRIBLE! If you ever manage to get your hands on an existing copy your local game store didn't throw out in disgust, please don't play it, for the sake of your future experience in video games. (Seriously, after playing this, Minecraft's graphics will seem heavenly and all other games on this list will be like an irreplaceable offer from the Greek god of video games, or something. ) In other words: This is bad.

Ugh this isn't even a game. The closest thing to actual gameplay is "deciding what happens next." The development team for this were probably drunk after the party they just had and realized the next morning that they had a game to work on. They found a price of poop they forgot to flush and decided to turn it in to their boss.

This isn't even a game. It's not even a movie. It's a kindergarten PowerPoint presentation with random times when you need to press a button. I'm glad they've done away with this kind of interactive movie thing because it's just awful. Thank God we'll never see like this again.


9 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

If the word 'Overhated' was a game, it would be this.
Honestly, great music and the glitches make it way funnier. If Sega didn't rush the game, it likely would've been way better. If you want an actually bad Sonic game released in 2006, search 'Sonic Genesis GBA port'

Story, glitches, level design, and it's almost like a Sonic Adventure 3. The only good thing about this game is the music. And you don't even have to buy the game in order to hear it. Just buy the soundtrack, because this is an absolute joke of a game. People try to defend this game because Sonic Team didn't have time to finish it. BUT THAT DOESN'T MATTER! They might have been able to get it done on time if they didn't waste so much development time. There weren't even supposed to be nine playable characters. It was just supposed to be Sonic, Shadow, and Silver. Good thing Sonic Colors brought Sonic back, though.

This should be in the top five. The game was released in 2006, a long time after most of the other games here were made, and by then you'd think game companies would be able to make games that are at least playable. But that's not the case with Sonic 06. The game was rushed to be released for Sonic's 15th anniversary and it was full of glitches that made the whole thing unplayable, a story no one really cared about, and loading screens that take an eternity to get through. Even though the soundtrack is good, that isn't nearly enough to help the game have some redeeming factors. Worst Sonic game ever made and one of the worst games of all time.

I have never seen a beautiful canvas with unplayable gameplay. Like, you have to wait for five minutes before you can actually play it again. Just, wow. The graphics are really good by 2006 standards, and among all the worst Sonic games, I felt this was actually trying to pay homage to the original source material, and had some creative concepts in mind. Sure, I thought Sonic would never go wrong, but this is what changed my mind. In my opinion, this one is really really beautiful graphics with colors that were carefully selected. The problem of this one is the gameplay. After seeing the reception of the game, I immediately left the Sonic fandom.

10 Ride to Hell: Retribution

This game is a reminder that being in a biker gang, having awkward sex with unusually easy women and shooting thousands of idiot bikers who charge at you, isn't what its cracked out to be. In fact, most people who played this probably got up prayed mercilessly to their gods, then found the nearest soup kitchen to help their community hoping that they won't ride to hell for playing such an awful creation. So in a way its probably helping mankind realize their mistakes and give back to the world while become productive individuals to society in the process.

You go around screwing women and watch hilariously bad sex scenes because they still have their clothes on, you do bike missions and I swear, it feels like you are on ice. You also get to do fighting missions, and they're crap. You spam 1 button over and over again. You even get to do FPS missions. The enemy AI is so bad. WOW, this is truly the best game in existence, it's better than Mine craft and Skyrim.

While things like gameplay, voice acting and other such things might be found in worse quantities in other games, not a single one of them can claim to be as offensive as this one manages to be. And it's not like the game is gunning for less then the gold medal in the other aforementioned departments either.

Poor gameplay is one thing, and this game has plenty of that, with awful combat, odd button choices, terrible driving segments, but how about adding some horrible cutscenes? lack of sound, impact, and choppy animation is being generous. The story, is bland. Guy wants revenge, so he goes on a rampage. that's what it boils down to. It was a hubworld, for some reason, padding probably. Boring characters, with an attempt at voice acting, probably recorded in a bathroom without sound-proof foam. This is all awful, but the absolute worst part of this game isn't any of this. This game, is offensive. Women are used as literal sex objects. Any female you help, no matter what, gives you sex as a reward. no matter what, for no reason. This had no reason to even exist. its not even good.

The Contenders
11 Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

When you give the licensing of your video game character to another game developing group who ends up making their own console instead, this is what you get.

I've watched the gameplay of this "Zelda" game. It was beyond terrible. This was nothing like the Zelda series. The animating was stupid, the plot was terrible, and the pause button was the crouch button.

I'm just glad it wasn't Nintendo who created this monstrosity but it was dumb for them to give the licensing to someone else.

A great game where you have to sit through the best cutscenes in the world! Doesn't watching them want you to be proud that your a Zelda fan? Also, go ahead and Defeat gannon by putting him in a book, the most epic way to end a legend of Zelda game! Also, they released TWO versions of this game! So you can have to go through all of that ALL OVER AGAIN with a few tweaks! Also using a state of the art controller that sometimes will spazz out of control! Yay! So buy your copy and CDI add on today, and make sure you also play Zeldas adventure, hotel Mario, and the faces of evil for even more torture... I mean... Pleasure? Yeah, I don't understand how the project that makes the PlayStation can also make this utter garbage!

This is my personal favorite Zelda title and My 2nd favorite game of all time! the graphics and gameplay were amazing when it first released, and the music is still outstanding. I felt like every step of my quest was part of a fairy tail, and I would gladly give this game a 10/10. It's simply fantastic... what? This isn't Ocarina of Time? Then what was I just talking about? The Wand of who-melon? Oh, that game sucks, I give it a 1/10 at best; best CDI game out there.

The Legend of Zelda is one of the most BADASS and EPIC series, but it isn't fair to hate on it because of this's not even canon nor official. Anyways, this is one of the worst games in history, if not the worst...I'm surprised it's not higher up the list. Watch the cutscenes on youtube yourself, laugh out loud.

12 Shaq-Fu

Dear Shaq-Fu,

This game sucks. It is just Shaq trying to be cool. Even though Shaq had big balls. Thus game still sucks. One out of ten this game is a 0.1. Did I mention that the graphics are okay. They are not as bad as Minecraft.

Sincerely, Anonymous...

Yeah, what's better than a black guy looking at you like this and saying "Hey, give all your money and I won't shoot your balls".

Sonic Battle & Catfight are even worse fighting games than this for multiple reasons...

Remember, I hate this game too, which is why I used "even worse". Do you have any replies?

I don't think CoD4 should be on here RE:5 or GTA4. RE:4 I actually think is one of the better RE games and GTA4 is just overrated and CoD4 is incredible. And I've never heard of "Shaq-Fu" it just sounds dumb

13 Crazy Bus

It's crazy that someone made a game that you have to play for 8 hours straight. This is the most boring game ever. There's nothing to keep your attention. The background is always the same, there are no passengers on the bus, there is no music and what you get when you reach the end? 1 point. 1 miserable point! And if you doze off while playing, the bus steers to the right on purpose and gets stuck. Then, a tow truck brings you back to the start. In real time. And then you have to do the 8 hours again, from the beginning. This is just outrageous. Did I forget to mention that you can't pause nor save the game? That's "Crazy" bus for you.

Where do I even start with this game?. This game can barely be considered a game, Simply drive left and right and honk the horn. While a crunched image of an bus is in the background while riding on a see through checkerboard floor, The only sprites (The buses) Look as if they were done in ms paint and even then: You could make a better looking bus. This game doesn't even look finished. It looks like it was made in 10 minutes at least. The only song there is a song that... I'm not even sure if it's a song, It barely has any pattern, It's just a bunch of bleeps and bloops that will scatter windows, Honestly if you corrupted a song, It would likely have more of a beat than whatever the soundtrack in crazy bus is. There's no excuses for this game, Desert bus was a game made to critique how parents often ripped on games for being too violent, Big rigs despite not being anywhere near a finished state, Is at least funny. This game isn't even a game you can laugh it, There's nothing to laugh ...more

Superman 64 is only at the top for how well known it is, which is the core problem when you have people voting for "best of" or "worst of". I truly believe that Crazy Bus is the 2nd worst game of all time, only beaten by Hong Kong 97. Superman 64 shouldn't even make the top 50. Yeah, it's a terrible game by all means, but it should be nowhere near the top ten, never mind number 1. That game is a masterpiece compared to the top ten worst games of all time. Heck, compared to Crazy Bus, Action 52 is "a good game". This is "The Room" of video games, almost as if Tommy had made it himself.

Everyone listen, I know the graphics, and the sounds (It's not even music) are terrible and so is the whole game itself, but the creator probably did this on purpose. The game-play is useless, yes, that's the point. Just move the bus side to side. What he or she is trying to tell us is that once we play the game we think "Why am I doing this? " "I should just do something with my life than playing this.". That's the whole point, stop doing the useless and start doing the beneficial..

14 Hotel Mario

When the name springs to mind, I just end up cringing at the fact that all that happens is you shut a door. Puzzle game? Yeah right, a puzzle game without the puzzle more like.

I'm sorry but I can't consider this a game at all, it's just pathetic - a joke on paper, because I think 3 year old children could and maybe would come up with a better game, idea and concept.

I finish my point with this: What is a game, without an objective?

Who can make a better video game? the answer, ANYBODY. This game hardly even qualifies as a game. When playing the game, all you're doing is running around and shutting doors. Really? shutting doors? Could it be any more stock? How about the hideous controls and horrible jumping. When you're trying to stomp on enemies, you bounce up and get killed by enemies on the floor above you. Worst of all the cutscenes. No enclosed instruction book can help you with this horrible "game"

Ok, I take back the fact that Plumbers Don't wear ties is worse than this., I could create better stuff in 5 seconds. Whoever these producers were, should be kidnapped, brought to a Miley Cyrus concert, electrocuted 50,000 times, and then finally, when they beg for death, give it in the most painful way. All while you're clubbing them with a plunger.

Wow, this game is so trash it won't fit in the garbage bin. Honestly, it was not Satoru's fault, he only prevented copyrighting this monster of a game. I hate how Mario and Luigi don't have an Italian accent and I HATE the music! Worst part, the graphics and audio quality are as bad as a YouTube video on 144p.

15 Hong Kong 97

Long, long ago, in 1995, the EVIL Jackie Chan was raining terror down in our local country, with his mind of abominations that permanently SCARED the reputation of our lives! But then suddenly, he stopped and thought: "Wait a minute", he said, "I can destroy the video game industry too! " So off the EVIL Jackie Chan went, to appear in Hong Kong '97, the most terrible bootleg game ever created! His most EVIL abomination yet! Hong Kong '97 is one of the most annoying, ear-piercing, offensively stupid video games to deface our local country. Filled with continual crap jokes, burp jokes and toilet jokes; all while this game smashes into your screen with this dead man's head. It seems more like a... bizarre form of psychological torture than it does a... video game. Chan is not charming in this game. He's not even relatable in any way! They've somehow managed to take all of the characters' worst qualities and multiplied them by 1.2 billion. Something like a 43-something Chinese stereotype ...more

I wonder who's in this stupid game. The Embassy of Canada to Japan? What are they doing in this travesty? Well, actually, they never worked on this game since it was a joke. Oh, it's so stupid, that secret project called an ultimate weapon named Tong Shau Ping. Really?! You named an ultimate weapon Tong Shau Ping? Look at that ugly thing. That is a Transformers rip-off. And there's Chris Patten, for some apparent reason, he called upon Bruce Lee's relative, but in real life, he never did that. Look at the graphics, look at how ugly they look. I mean, does this even look like it's a good game in anyway possible? Oh, this game's just stupid. It makes no sense, it's lazy, it's predictable, it's insulting, it's pretty much everything in the dictionary to describe this monstrosity. The story doesn't make sense. The music is pretty annoying. The special effects are terrible. Also, there are no sounds. And the editing... oh my God, the editing is just horrible. Did a monkey edit it? You know ...more

Those really are some nasty herd of ugly reds. Literally. The dark vibe that the grainy cover art image gives off will give the impression of what nightmares and 1990s Photoshop looks like just by staring at it. Now, one simply can't look away because even if they do, those herd of ugly reds will be mentally knocking at their doors one moment, and will be forever implanted through the depths of their minds.

The eerily catchy Tiananmen theme song will also make you die internally of intense mindfricked agony, as well as cringe. The whacked out plot line, as well as the whacked out gameplay itself is incredibly whacked the fudge out, and should be avoided at all costs for the sakes, likes, and safeties of all of humanity.

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 into an ultimate ...more

16 Desert Bus

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 ALL 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.

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!

How is this only number 22? This dosen't even qualify as a video game! You can only go at 45 miles per hour! You can't even pause the game or go faster. Also, IT TAKES 8 HOURS JUST TO GET 1 POINT! And the bus moves to the right, so you'll get stuck in the sand and get towed back to the beginning of the game. There aren't any passengers to interact with. This has got to be the worst video game ever!

I guess this is the type of game that you can't, like, pause or anything and it is real time and everything. I don't know what it is called but I think it is somewhat like LARPing (Live Action Role Playing) which means it's, you guessed it, live action. But why they would put absolutely no obsticals or turns or anything at all is absolutely annoying to me.

17 Pac-Man (Atari 2600)

This was seriously one of the only games that gave me nightmares when I was little. I'm the kind of person who isn't scared by zombies, or man-eating plants. It's the open space. No sound. Darkness. I may sound like I'm insane, but even Boom-Blox and Chime scared me. Especially Chime. *shivers* This game gets monotonous after a while when you play with it by yourself, so it helps to have someone around. You can get really mad with the ghosts, too. There are a lot of glitches and definitely some things that could use improvement.

Yes it was the best selling game on the console, but that was only because it came with the box. The game has sound effects that are just horrendous. The sound that it makes when Pac-Man eats a pellet sounds like your toddler is pressing a button that makes a duck quack constantly. The ghosts also glitch and double so it looks like two are coming for ya. This game's a total glitch it self.

TERRIBLE. The sound effects are awful and they wont get out of your head. They almost make you sick. The maze is very dull and the point system is just retarded. They could have at least made the cherries red. The ghosts are glitchy and you don't know when they stop blinking because of a glitch. You must experience this rushed abomination.

This is a prime example of why you don't rush games. The creators were so determined to get the game released in time for the holidays that they went and released the prototype. This is why the game turned out to be such a mess and played a part in the video game crash of 1983.

18 Fortnite: Battle Royale

All you do is loot the house, shoot people, build treehouses and repeat. This game led to little kids stealing their moms credit card to get 100 pound v bucks for only 10 skins, children being addicted and screaming the whole bloody house down just because they died. Literally, my friend is addicted to this game and now I'm forced to do this 2fa that I don't give one about just to give her an ugly skin. If I don't, then she ends the call and has an argument. If I also buy her dream skin, she does the same thing. Really I wish this game just wasn't made and I'll have the same opinion on it even though chapter 2 season 7 is here.

I really do not get why this game is so popular to begin with. Most of the boys keep talking about it at school and in public. An actual good video game (such as Halo, Grand Theft Auto, and Sonic the Hedgehog) keeps a story and makes it better, and that is not what Fortnite does. It just floated its way to fame because little kids were tricked with cheap, stupid cosmetics into getting lasered by tryhards and cheaters. I also hate how it runs out of ideas easily. The same stuff keeps appearing in the shops over and over and over again. And the guns; don't even get me started. Even a baby's toy does more damage than most of the guns in this horrible game. It doesn't care about its feedback either. It's like Teen Titans Go, only as a video game. I'm glad I got into high school before stuff for this game showed up in book fairs. It didn't deserve the fame it got and is definitely the worst multiplayer game of all time.

Fortnite is trash. This game is so boring you can build things so can you do in Minecraft. I'm sick of this trash getting so popular even though literally any other shooter is better or most games even. The fanbase is awful is awful. Just a bunch of kids screaming in mikes. And the gameplay is just bland you just are thrown into a random spot on the map and expected to find ammo and stuff. Just play TF2, Halo, Overwatch, or CoD instead. Don't play Fortnite.

This is just Minecraft and PUBG tied together in such an unoriginal game. the code is actually from other games (not lying, I looked in the files). once upon a time an overrated celebrity was paid by the devs to do a stream where he said it was the best game ever. the fact that this was popular just shows what is wrong with todays gamers. Minecraft (which is also on this list, probably a fortnite fan) still had tens of millions of more active players (not a lie, had to do some hardcore internet sluething to find this out though) than Fortnite when fortnite peaked. it was just a social taboo.

19 Flappy Bird

This game is overrated. It stole 90% of the graphics from Mario, it has absolutely no ending and must continue forever, the character flaps all over the place like an idiot, the hit detection when being between the pipes is GODLY HORRIBLE, has no feeling of satisfaction whatsoever, spawned so many crappy clones, touchscreen controls suck, no story at all, and made everyone addicted in unhealthy ways; One time a person killed another over the fact that he can't beat his high score.

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 on forever but you get the idea. I also heard that this game caused people to commit suicide, I don't know if that's true or not.

This game is crap. The only reason why people played this is that it is very addictive. Yes, very addictive, but very repetitive, very bad graphics, very hard, very pointless... Man, this game could be easily at the top 10!

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.

20 Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis

Admit it, EVERYBODY hates water levels. The one in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES really ticked a lot of players off. So, it was decided to make an entire game based around the concept. Not only does suck, but the bad camera angles just make the gameplay worse.

Mario Party 7 is way better than Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis.

Who would want to even play this abomination!

This is a sequel to Superman 64.

21 Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

I can defend Sonic 06, but I CAN'T defend this game. I could've made this game in a night with a dog chewing on my nuts! Its story is awful, it's got bad graphics, fhe designs suck, the dialogue SUCKS! Let me give an example!

Sonic: Look! Ramps!

(2 seconds later)

Tails: We can use these as ramps!

Great writing creators! They even got the MUSIC wrong. It's so generic that it's below average. Sonic's slow, Knuckles is an idiot, the villains suck, and it's just an awful game. You can go through WALLS too. I played this game at a Target due to my refusal to pay money for this abhorrent game and hated EVERY second of it. They REALLY did not care about making this game.

By far the worst Sonic game ever. They try to do something different, but nearly everything new they did was via subtraction! The only thing I can praise about this game is that the animations during cutscenes are great and the presentation of the voice acting is also great (but I can't say the same for the script the actors presented). Other than that, the game has nothing! Character designs are okay at best, the soundtrack is far more forgettable than Shadow's soundtrack, nothing is explained making the story pointless, gameplay for all three portions are awful.

This is actually worse than Sonic 06. The graphics here are bad. The gameplay is horrendous. The physics are useless. Like Sonic 06, it has many bugs and glitches. It could crash at times. The multiplayer modes are terrible. The framerate is abysmal. The story is unbearable. The new character, Sticks the Badger, barely appears and does nothing but give you a pointless sidequest. The sound effects are poor. I mean, this should be higher. Also, do you have Shattered Crystal on this list? That game is just as bad as this one over here.

Even though it's lower than sonic 06 but there a lot of things wrong with this game. #1 the glitches are occasionally everywhere, the graphics are alright no masterpiece, the voice acting has glitches as well and terrible I'm not sure for the music because the only music that I heard was in the trailer with the bangarang song by Skrillex and that's pretty muschit

22 Minecraft

This game is has nothing to it.

All you do is eat build mine and fight

All the fans are like "fighting of zombies is super fun"
Could there be worse fighting mechanics

"You have total creative freedom" what? To build stuff entirely out of cubes and nothing else? I know you get to flick a switch and make stuff move after an hour of work but whats the point in that?

"Its all about surviving" yeah the survival mechanics are you have to eat food. Maybe it would be interesting if food was rare or you had to fight for food. This also interrupts building

"You have a final goal" that takes you about three hours to find and is SO ANNOYING! Why the hell would somebody put a combat orientated situation in a game with the worst combat system ever?

"You can build roller coasters, castles and statues and anything else" roller coasters are basic, castles are basic and you can't build much else thanks to the limited supply of everything the game has to ...more

This game is much better off as a sandbox hidden gem. Honestly, people refer to this as the greatest game ever made. How? I get that it compliments retro games, but I doubt that when playing Super Mario Bros or Final Fantasy, all you really felt like doing was building giant penises. What's more, people love this game. There are YouTubers with hundreds of thousands of subscribers that do nothing more than create amateur animations about stupid plot lines such as "If Lapis Lazuli Tools Were Real", and then always base it off of "hacking Notch's computer", which isn't possible. It's influence was great and all, but I'm sick of people defending this game as one of the greatest masterpieces in gaming. It's too simple to be legendary.

Ok, I can understand that quite a few people may not like this game and that's fine. But the worst game ever? What the hell! So your saying this game is worse than the likes of E.T. , Ride To Hell and Bubsy 3D? It may not be super epic like Terraria but it's massive expansive world and simple but engaging gameplay means anyone can get into it and have hundreds of hours of fun doing whatever they want. Some people prefer simple games they can just easily play with no fuss and even if you aren't a casual gamer like me it is still fun. Once you get bored of vanilla the massive amount of servers and community content keep the fun almost infinite. If you don't like it, fine. But it is FAR from the worst game ever made.

I have been looking through arguments that people make about why this game is bad and I would like to go through why they are wrong.

1. The game has bad graphics
This is quite possibly the only thing that I can say is correct. However, the landscape itself and the builds that people make can be quite astonishing. Not to mention that you can download a texture pack to make the game look nicer.

2. The game doesn't have a story
In the list of the most sold video games ever Minecraft tops in at number 2. You know what game is number 1? Tetris. Does Tetris have a storyline? No. Most Mario games don't even have a storyline and that is the largest video game franchise.

3. The game is boring.
What can you not do in this game?

23 Dark Castle

The controls are the worst abomination on the face of the planet, the main character I such a chicken, he always gets dizzy, or dies right when he is about to jump to another platform, the music is lazy as hell, the noises the character makes are so annoying, you will want to just put your hand into the T.V. so you can punch him in the face! Oh, and there are some of the items that they want you to collect to beat the final boss, however you don't need them! All you can do to kill him is to pull some levers so the antagonist falls into a pit. To make it even worse, you can just skip all of the levels just to get to the final level! To make it even WORSE, you can beat the game in exactly 2 MINUTES!

George Bernard Shaw said one cannot expect a man to do some things more than once, one of them being listen to Brahms' requiem. This stereotypical horror movie music is worse. It's like if you went to ten weddings in a month, all of them playing Lohengrin. And every happy thing to happen to you was greeted with a choir singing "Fruede schöner Gotterfunken, Tochter aus Elisium..." The soundtrack alone is enough for me to throw this game with great force.

Dark Castle is one of those games where the challenge comes from the controls and the repetitive nature of the maps. Sadomasochists rejoice, you'll be spending a lot of time in the dungeon.

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.

I rather play "Light Dungeon" if there's such thing...

24 Link: The Faces of Evil

I couldn't decided which of the 2 games I should add, so I included them both
First off, the graphics...are actually alright, but the gameplay is frustrating, the voice acting is awful, and the characters. Are. HIDEOUS!

How the hell is Fortnite about this? In my opinion Fortnite is not good but it's at least a well made game compared to this

This crazy joke is one of three lousy Zelda CDi games too many. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

I've played this one, but not Zelda: the wand of gameleon, so I'm intrigued as to why that game ranked so much higher than this one.

25 Five Nights at Freddy's

Oh call of duty fanboys and hillary clinton supporters, just stop. Yes, the game has a perverted fanbase of furries that watch zootopia on an endless loop every day, but doesn't pokemon and almost every other pop culture icon deal with that? I don't understand while you whine about this they make infinite amounts of porn on everything else we love. There is no way of stopping the rule 34 machine. Get Over It! Also, if you ever played, it it is actually a pretty good horror game (although 4 and sister location are superior in my opinion).

The game is straight rubbish. It should have never been created the jump scares are predictable and the game is just so repetitive, even the sequels! It's also very disappointing that Scott tried to put just an actual SHRED of story in the game. But don't even get me started on the fan base. Every kid that likes this game is a little prick. Talking about how its one of the "Best games ever". It isn't, it should be number one on the worst games list. For its fanbase alone!

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 creator made it in less than a month. ...more

Honestly, this game has nothing to it. I don't think it's the worst game ever, but it is bad. The gameplay is boring and repetitive (and by repetitive, I mean every time you do a new playthrough of this game, you'll most likely be playing it the exact same you had the last time), the story has more plot holes then Sonic 06, and the fanbase is terrible. Most of the people in the fanbase, from my understanding, has never even played the game, which is probably why they think it's incredibly great. I know it's their opinion if they like this game, but pretty much the reason everyone liked it is because of how popular (overrated) it got after Markiplier played it. (Which surprisingly made him gain a ton of subscribers) The only aspect I really like of FNAF are the designs of the animatronics, which are ok, but there really isn't anything else to it.
