Worst Atari 2600 Games

The Top Ten
1 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Product Image

To the comment that thinks LJN made this, no, no one in the right mind can say rainbow of doom, stop blaming LJN for everything, this game was actually made by one of the best developers despite being awful.

I feel like there are worse Atari games out there, though those games barely even qualify as games so you'd probably know why.

Let's face it, the real ET would never approve of this crazy excuse for a video game. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

Worst game ever. Raiders of the Lost Ark was a close second. Parents wasted good money on this garbage.

2 Custer's Revenge Custer's Revenge Product Image

How is this not #1? This makes E.T. look like gold. E.T. is pretty bad, but it's so bad it's good. This game isn't good in any circumstance.

How is this crazy joke a video game, anyway!

How can you not get offended by this?

3 Haunted House Haunted House Product Image

I loved this game when I was 3. Probably because of my age...

A game more complicated than it needs to be, bad gameplay and even AVGN reviewed the game and he said it sucked

5 minute made crap. - N64Dude

4 Pac-Man Pac-Man Product Image

I thought it was quite good.
Sure it was buggy and the maze was simplistic, but considering the limitations of that time it was good.

5 Indy 500

You can go through the boundaries and come out of the other side. - N64Dude

6 Porky's

Well, it's annoying when you fall into the swamp

7 Space War Space War Product Image

The cover looks AWESOME! The game is boring. - N64Dude

8 Miss Piggy's Wedding

This deserves the number 1 spot. Even E.T was more playable than this monstrosity!

9 Fire Fly
10 Superman Superman Product Image

At least this Superman game wasn't ruined by a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts who also ruined ET, Action 52, Back To The Future, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Bill & Ted, Sonic 06, Terminator 2, the Unholy Triforce, Hotel Mario, Beetlejuice, Friday The 13th, Nightmare On Elm Street, Bubsy 3D, Shaq-Fu, Spirit Of Speed 1937 and a truckload of other games!

The Contenders
11 Karate
12 Golf
13 Double Dragon Double Dragon Product Image

This was a pretty good game...

14 Miniature Golf Miniature Golf Product Image

Only good if you believe in PAR 66 holes

15 Beat'em & Eat'em

20? That's pretty low. I honestly would rather play E.T. than this garbage. - LarryLarrington

16 Ghostbusters 2
17 Gigolo

How this crazy piece of (uh, use your imagination) slipped by quality control is anyone's guess.

18 Star Wars: Jedi Arena Star Wars: Jedi Arena Product Image
19 Red Dead Redemption 2 Red Dead Redemption 2 Product Image

Awful game. - myusernameisthis
