Top 10 Worst Video Games of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Superman 64

this game just ruined my whole life - anthonybecerra831

It's flying through rings while being timed! That's all it is.

Just flying threw stupid rings and being timed, that's all people, that's all, one of the worst video games ever, it's like a group of video game creators left the work to the laziest, workers, to create the game, and we ended up with this, hunk of crap.

Lame.

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.

The real ET would never approve of this crazy excuse for an Atari 2600 video game. Worst... Video... Game... EVER!

The only reason people have voted up perfectly adequate or even fun games like Halo 3, Grand Theft Auto, Minecraft (seriously what? ) and Call of Duty, is because they've never played true horror.

This is the true, terrifying result of no quality control on a rushed movie tie-in.

Oh, Easily the worst video game of all time.

Programmed in only 6 weeks to make a Christmas deadline, the game’s map is filled with holes everywhere both visible and invisible, and apparently, E.T can levitate when he stretches his neck. This is the worst game of all time because along with Pac Man 2600, it almost destroyed the video game industry, thanks to high licensing fees, and the thousands of unsold copies that ended up in a New Mexico Landfill. -WatchMojo - Enolam

3 Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing

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?!?!?

This game is so notoriously bad, it's good. Just look at the cover: it shows a police car (which doesn't exist in the game), says "18 wheels of thunder" (no 18-wheelers in the game), says "over the road" (you go anywhere but over the road: off road, THROUGH the road bridges, out of the gameworld entirely), and calls it "racing" (the opponent doesn't move so there's no race).

The entire cover is a lie. But it's a must-play to see exactly what a broken 'game' is like.

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 - TheRegular1227

I'm sure this game was a 100% lie. Seriously you can just drive through anything & go extremely fast by driving in reverse. - jdramirez

4 Bubsy 3D

Star Fox from the SNES had better graphics
than this. Now THAT's pathetic. Combine that with the worst voiceover job of all time and a worse story than an M. Night Shylaman film (Oh snap! ), and you have the second-worst video game of all time.

I'm pretty sure that I've seen better graphics being created by a two-year old. - FineDough

On the box it shows people who gave COMPLIMENTS to this game. They probably strapped video game critics to a chair and made them say something good about the game. All you pretty much do in this game is collect atoms and jump on platforms and kill enemies that don't move. When you get hit by a enemy the camera looks at you in the face and you keep getting it and you can't get out of it. Another thing the graphics are some of the worst graphics I have ever seen in my whole life. There were like 10 3d games made before this and the graphics were probably better then this. I want this game burried in the desert with the E. T cartridges. CAUTION: DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

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.

5 Action 52

I downloaded a ROM for this game and it's bad. Not ALL the games are bad, but most of them are. This is a full list of all 52 games.

1. Fire-Breathers: The only game on the cartridge that's for two players only, it only has 8 levels and it's very boring. All you do shoot your opponent and that's about it. Very boring. Next.

2. Starevil: One of the many space shooters on this cartridge, this game is mostly notorious for having an obstacle immediately at the start of the first level. Other than that, it's easy and boring. Also... It's a vertical space shooter.

3. Illuminator: A game where you kill vampires. Would be OK if not for the fact that the room is dark for most of the game, and you only get 1 second of brightness when you defeat a vampire. Moving on.

4. G-Force Fighters: The second space shooter on this cartridge, this time a horizontal shooter. Collision detection is very bad here. Don't play.

5. Ooze: A game that was probably special to the ...more

The dollar sign goes before the 200. It looks weird the other way around. - PeterG99

"Safety pins as enemies in a video game? " Right after the Angry Video Game Nerd says this in his review of Action 52, we see his impression of a video game programmer - specifically the Laughing Joking Numbnuts who gave us Action 52. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

The worst NES game ever, this game includes 52 games...ALL OF WHICH INCLUDES MAJOR GLITCHES! Some of the games aren't even finished! Most of games are shooters and platform games, but one game has you playing as fingers...and the word "time" appears whenever someone dies...what?

At the time this game(s) were released, It was a terrible sight to behold. Outrageous prices for rushed and glitchy games, stolen music, crashes, a weak cartridge that could overheat easily, and the cringiest ad I've seen. But the game has aged better: The crashing games actually work on an emulator, the game no longer costs outrageous prices (Well, for ROMs: No way anybody's gonna buy a copy on Ebay), and the games aren't as bad as you think, just rushed. Should be on the list, but a lot lower. - Brazencoronet17

6 Custer's Revenge

WHY did this game even get published!? How could anyone possibly not be offended by this?

All Custer does is rape Indian woman. Now, that is racist

Why is this 13th and Grand Theft Auto is fifth? This game is rascist, sexist, and possibly the flat out worst idea for a game ever.

The one time I want Nintendo censorship... Atari, if only you had joined forces! - Brazencoronet17

7 Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

"TAKE YOUR DAMN CLOTHES OFF! "

Are you serious? This game is only at Number 10? Plumbers Don't Wear Ties is so bad that it shouldn't be classified as a 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.

This isn't a game. Its just static images. Thanks for the heads up. - jdramirez

8 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.

If this crazy joke is a video game then walking under a ladder brings good luck, the Sun revolves around the Earth and Carrot Top is the president of the United States!

Game Informer review excerpts:
"A new contender for worst game of the generation"
"Everyone's necks are horrifying, and everything else looks like it's from 2004"
"Driving controls are terrible, gunplay is loose, checkpoints are inconsistent, awful quick-time events abound, environments are riddled with glitches and pop-up, enemy AI is mindless, and the story is terrible"
"At one point, my entire body disappeared and I was nothing but a floating miner's cap wearing a gun"
"Ride to Hell: Retribution is awful, broken, offensive, ugly, poorly written, and a never-ending source of unintentional humor"
There, that should sum it up.

Angryjoe, Projared, Completionist and few other gamers finished this game. They all agree it’s horrible. I would literally cry if I had to play this.

9 Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

The Angry Video Game Nerd says this is the worst game he has ever played.
And he owns like over 100 games, and he reviews the worst ones.

You can die from bombs that explode like 40 feet away from Dr. Jekyll. Wow that's totally fair. (Sarcasm)

In addition to absurd gameplay, the face on the cover is a ripoff of Freddy Krueger as well as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. What were them Laughing Joking Numbnuts thinking!

Nothing. Wanna know why? Because they never made this you imbecile. - LarryLarrington

10 Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

Gameplay is terrible, graphics are mediocre, and the cutscenes are flat-out ridiculous (but they are often used in "Youtube Poops" on Youtube).

I didn't even know this game existed until I saw this list!

The single reason that this is the worst game is that it is Zelda. The legend of Zelda is the greatest video game series of all time; this is a disgrace to the series that made gaming

Debatable. I've grown up with the series, played probably 90% of the games, but I wouldn't give it THAT much applause. Xenoblade is where it's at. - poncho531

This game is a disgrace to all Zelda fans. - RosalinaX

The Contenders

11 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

Story, glithces, 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.

Do you wanna know whats worse sonic boom rise of lyric and schoolhouse - ikerevievs

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.

Worst Sonic game ever! The graphics aren't that good for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, plus the graphics look like it should be on PlayStation 2. The level designs are mixed some are good but some are bad, the storyline has its moments, Mephiles should be in more games, it's not sonic adventure 3 if it were than there won't be any glitches, the glitches are everywhere, The voice acting is alright no masterpiece, princess Elise is in the game thank god you don't play has her but the part that ruined everything about this game is that after sonic was stabbed by Mephiles and... Princess Elise (you get the idea), the only good thing about it is the music. The music is awesome especially the mephiles whisper one I LOVE that track. Bottom line worst sonic game ever

Worst game ever that's it oh and the bestiality is awful

this game looks stupid rofl... -. -

Dear Shaq-Fu,

This game sucks balls. 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 Mine craft.

Sincerely, Anonymous...

This isn’t a bad game it’s just a stupid game.

This is why YouTube Poop was invented - MinusTop10

I know right! I wonder if people like YouTube Poop. You are so right! This is where YTP was before the Internet was invented & before YouTube was invented.

All your doing is shutting door's?

How is an awesome game about collecting Crystal Stars to get to the final area worse than a game about shutting doors?

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?

14 Desert 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!

Guys, this game was made as a joke. It's not supposed to be a real game. - MaxPap

15 Hong Kong 97 Hong Kong 97

Sorry about my other review, I accidentally pressed the post button. Anyway, there's a single song, or shall I say two lines of a song?! Yes, only two lines! And, well, they refer to Chinese people in a rather... interesting way. What is that way, you ask?

Ugly reds.

No, it's true, they actually call them that. Also, as others have pointed them out, they advertise themselves. Now, other companies do advertise themselves in their own game, but all they do is to just stick their logo into a random object. Also, why would someone would sell Happysoft's trash at their own store?

Now, about the game, it is RIDICULOUSLY HARD. There are dudes in gray and red. The red ones? They are annoying as HELL. They sway around, and when they touch you... Instant game over. There are cars that try to run you over as well... Sometimes, when you defeat those gray or red dudes, they drop white things.

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!

16 Crazy Bus

The awfulness of this game has to be seen to be believed, It is a game for Sega genesis made in Venezuela in 2004 where everything you do is drive left and right, yes that's it, YOU CAN'T EVEN COMPLETE THE GAME

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.

Venezuelan school buses featured in a crazy joke of a Sega Genesis game named after the worst song ever (Arthur's least favourite song is worse than Justin Bieber or pachelbel or nickelback (no capital letters on purpose))? How crazy can you get!

Well, the second worst song ever. The absolute worst song ever is the title screen music in this game. - computerfan0

Why this game should be number 1:

The graphics make it look some unfinished game boy color game. ON THE MEGA DRIVE!
Music? More like random notes played in a random rhythm
The sound effects are just instruments,AND THERE'S ONLY TWO!
Almost all shown on-screen are just images with bad quality! The rest is text and the buses
The gameplay...Ugh...There's only FIVE THINGS YOU CAN DO IN THE INTIRE GAME: PASS TROUGH THE HORRENDOUS TITLE SCREEN,SELECT A BUS,MOVE LEFT WITH THE BUS,MOVE RIGHT AND HONK,WHICH MAKES ONE OF THE TWO ONLY SOUND EFFECTS! HOW IS THAT A GAME?! EVEN TENNIS FOR TWO,THE FIRST GAME EVER,HAD MORE REPLAY VALUE! IT WAS SIMPLE,BUT YOU COULD PLAY,LIKE,SOME MINUTES WITHOUT GETTING BORED! EVEN THE TITLE SCREEN OF CRAZY BUS BORES ME TO DEATH! I REFUSE TO CALL THIS ABOMINATION A GAME! EVEN DESERT BUS IS FUNNIER! AT LEAST THAT GAME WAS A J O K E,A DAMN JOKE!

17 Pac-Man (Atari 2600)

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.

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.

I think it was decent, but there still were a few things that could've been improved.

The graphics in the Atari version of PAC-MAN just suck. - JoeBoi

18 Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis

This was named the worst gamecube game of all time, the controls are poor, the camera position itself on its free will, and the graphics are bad, I don't think this should even be called a game

Mario Party 7 is the worst Gamecube game of all time, not Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis. Even if I found Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis to be very underrated, I wouldn't have really liked this game anyway.

I remember when I was 5 this game was cool but when I found it in the attic and played it I realized how bad the controls were and the bad camera so I took my hammer and broke it

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.

Mm... OH.. sorry, I'm actually trying to figure out if this game is actually unfinished or not. I mean, they don't even try it, it looks so empty, it slow and boring, and there isn't a piece of originality, we are talking about aquaman, and The Lost City of Atlantis, I have never seen such a bad representation of this city since... ¡¡¡¡¡TENTACOLINO!

19 Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

Let me explain to you why this is worse than Sonic 06:

1) Boring ass story. Sure, Sonic 06 had a bad story, but this takes the cake in bland. Sonic 06 had overlapping stories, this just has 1 bland story...

2) The bland hub. Sonic 06 (whilst I dare cry my eyes out) had a bad hub world. It was bland, but it wasn't BAD. THIS GAME has the issue of moving slower than a snail. You can't go across hub worlds fast enough, and they're so confusing...

3) The game-breaking glitches. Yes, sonic 06 had these too; but they weren't as bad as this. One glitch allows you to skip 90% of the game. NINETY PERCENT!

4) The slow pace. Hoo-boy, I thought sonic was fast. Guess he broke his legs.

5) Why do I say he broke his legs? Because the characters all wear BANDAGES. Oh, and sonic's taller. Again. Knuckles looks like he's on steroids as well.

6) Knuckles' personality. He's become an idiot.

Yes, I am a new member, and yes, I do get pissed off and rant a ...more - mattstat716

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 worse 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.

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

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

If you see the reason flappy bird was deleted, you'll see the creating of flappy bird was an accident. - XxAlexSavagexX

NO Who would put this on here? This is the best game EVER!

Well, it does have some effects on children and teens. I do agree it's incredibly entertaining, but it is a time waster in some cases and causes some to stay on it for hours on end, leading to vitamin D deficiencies, obesity, and more. I would keep going but I don't want to get on anyone's bad side. I want to stay on the neutral side of things for this. - username34

23 SQIJ!! (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.

It had been 'apologetically' remade in 2018. - Sprightly - Sprightly

24 Daikatana

Daikatana is not just bad, but it's so abysmal that it split up Ion Storm and destroyed the friendship of one of the best gaming duos in the 90s. What made Daikatana so awful is you cannot see a thing (except for the revolting green lake). The palette is full of mucus like greens, oily oranges, and it uses bodily fluid colors a lot. The character models are really bad. By right, they were supposed to be humans, but I don't know what their species are. The voice acting is performed so badly, so obnoxiously abysmal, that I felt annoyed and disappointed. Daikatana is simply a guide of what not to do when you are a game designer, and it really really deserves that place. Out of 10, -25. - tqpreviews1211

An awful generic FPS with terrible graphics that destroyed John Romero's reputation

Even John Romero Called it Abysmal - Aguythatpeopleignores

This was actually the second attempt of the "Ion Storm" company to make a videogame... yeah the guys behind "Deus Ex" and "Thief", and I personally despise this game
1:Lucky for you if you see a thing whitout 100% brightness of you computer. I don't know how they thought the ambience was clear for the eyes.
2:The palette is the same thing that you see when you enter in a public bathroom, mucus green, oily yellow.. or orange?... ¡¡SEE, MATE? I CAN'T EVEN DESCRIBE IT!
3:At the time that this game came out, Ion Storm was more or less new in the gaming industrie. And what does that means folks? the reputation goes down...down in the garbage can. It was supposed to came out in 1997, but whit problems that I don't care, was released in 2000... right before after Quake III release, and by the time, Daikatana had a obsolete engine, the piece of cake that ruined the John Romero's reputation
4:Talking about the engine (the same one as quake II, id Tech 2) even I can make better 3D ...more

25 M&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. )

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?

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

Y’know I actually have this game

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.

This is a real game, and now I kind of wanna play it.

27 Grand Theft Auto V

What are you talking about? Are you high? Best game ever

This game was alright but I loved San Andreas way better! Sure Grand Theft Auto V beats San Andreas in graphics but San Andreas had a great story and so did V. I liked San Andreas better since there was a little more to do than in V

I'm actually really surprised this isn't higher. I bet you anything Rockstar Games created this so there would be thousands of times more serial killers in the world, so they would kill enough people that it would stop overpopulation. I'm not even kidding.

If that was true then you can say the same thing for any games with guns in it. - RyanSmith123014

Why is this on the list!? It's a really great game! - jdramirez

28 Zelda'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!

Why is it not higher?

Not as bad as Faces Of Evil, Wand Of Gamelon and Hotel Mario. But it's not good either, also LJN never published/made this, so shut up to whoever said "Laughing Joking Numbnuts. - Gehenna

31 Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo!

When I was much younger, me and my siblings pretended that we were all in moshi monster land or something like that, and we all picked monsters to be. it started out good until one of my siblings decided that since her and someone else were both devils then they should be able to kill people with fake swords. Of course, everyone else objected to that, but they didn't care. It went from a nice little society game to an all out war. You could write letters in crayon to other peoples "houses" (a room they chose) and slip it underneath a door. My sister and that other guy decided that if there is a small plastic bush looking thing in the note, then once you open it up, they can come in and kill you. I wanted to just blow everything up with a rocket I was so pissed... this happened when I was 8 or 9 by the way, so this isn't recent. - username34

I remember this in a commercial and its pretty boring and stupid. - dkomoko

OH GOSH I HATE HATE HATE MOSHIMONSTERS WHEN I LOOKED AT IT THE MONSTERS ARE HIDEOUS WHY WAS MOSHI MONSTERS EVEN MADE?

32 Mario 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!

This excuse for a game deserves at least the 20th place. - MrAlXtop10s

35 Five 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

I don't even get why this game was in this list, but I love the game so much (even I never played it before but I watched the walkthroughs on YouTube) especially the theories, plots, and easter eggs. But the fanbase just ruined the whole game and turned into a "screw-you" franchise! Even a book and an upcoming movie of 2020. The gameplay is about you as a security guard wanted to survive midnights for 5 nights (hence the the title, but why did the game added more nights anyways! ) and you need to survive each night without getting killed by 4 animatronics (Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy) and that golden version of the titular character that scared the heck of me. And you and your little flashlight, a security monitor, and your lil' buddy named Phone Guy have your back and you need to check the robots if they are in place. But at 3am, things started to get really scary when the animatronics came to life and haunt you for real.

Yeah, the gameplay just boring and it's kinda ...more

37 I 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

This game doesn't good as the original, but it is scarier than the original, and it is also harder as it requires more skill and speed than the strategy

46 Cheetahmen II

THIS CRAP FEST DESERVES TO BE #1! WHY? BECUASE OF THE FOLLOWING REASONS

Cartridge: Seriously? Games came in grey (probably the most common one), red, black, blue, gold, silver, and the list goes on. But seriously. Why does it need to be a clear cartridge? On top of that, they actually recycled the same plastic casing from Action 52 and put a Cheetahmen II sticker on the back. We're they this lazy? Can't you believe that this game is so bad that it dosen't even get its own cartridge?

Story: Somebody named Dr. Morbis creates an ape man to fight the Cheetahmen. Nothing else to say here.

Gameplay: It's horrible. Even there's a glitch that you can jump in midair. AND IN THE 4TH LEVEL, ONCE YOU KILL THE APE MAN OR IF IT FALLS OFF, IT DOSEN'T TAKE YOU TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

Graphics: THE GLITCHES ARE OUT OF CONTROL! BLOCKS RANDOMLY CHANGE COLOR, THERE IS A STONE NUGGET THAT KEEPS APPEARING OUT OF NOWHERE, AND WHEN YOU JUMP TOO HIGH, SOME SHAPE APPEARS ABOVE YOU! IS ...more

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.

What? Why is this here? The majority of The Sims stuff before Sims 4 was critically acclaimed. Yes, it's radically different to the point that it may not qualify as an actual game, but take it for what it is...we probably won't get another game franchise like this in the next century.

I use to play the sims 2 pets and I liked it.

Without the original this wouldn't exist.

50 Finding 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 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 it really defines next gen gaming

Why did this have to be a game?
