Top 10 Worst Video Games of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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!

Really? At least with the games above you do something in this game you just drive with no end - spodermanfan1000

22 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.

This game is SO BAD that it makes Superman 64 look like LoZ Ocarina of Time. It was rushed, you can't MOVE until you HACK into the game by PRESSING A FEW BUTTONS, it's REALLY glitchy, need I say more? This needs to be #1.

23 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?

I love Moshi Monsters but screw this junk. - redhawk766

24 Dark Castle

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

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

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

Oh god

25 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?

What Even Is ThIs? - VideoGamefan5

26 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

This is worse than the M&M's snack ones... - AldoFitrian

27 Ninjabread Man

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

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

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

I haven't played this game, but I only need to see LPs of it to know that this should make it higher on this list

28 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

In Grand Theft Auto you can rob banks steal cars kill people modify cars run people over it goes on and on

This game's pretty bad.

29 Poptropica

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

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

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

Jeff Kinney made this game look and play great, but why is Big Nate a character?

30 The Legend of Zelda

Whoever put this here is obviously a Call of Duty fanboy or something like that. - drdevil

When I saw this on the list I thought that I was on the best video games of all time not the WORST! - spodermanfan1000

One of the most influential pieces in video game history

I people don't want it on here then stop voting for it to make it higher same with Grand Theft Auto v and minecraft - ikerevievs

31 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

Hitler is missing sucks... Hitler is missing sucks... - AldoFitrian

33 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

The GBA Version is awesome. - BlueSheepYT

34 SpongeBob SquarePants: SuperSponge

The PlayStation port was definitely amazing but the GBA port is boring - jwaughtal

This game was good

I played it and couldn't for the life of me figure out what to do

GBA version is bland
PS1 version rocks and shouldn't be on this list at 36 - BlueSheepYT

35 Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

We would rather press a lot of buttons than the controller and the kinect.

Would probably be a bit better if this didn't used Kinect

You cannot do anything in this game, heavily unplayable

This game needs to be at least #10 - thunderstar1124

36 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

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

THIS IS THE STUPIDIEST GAME EVER

37 Littlebigplanet 3

Aw, come on! Of all the games, why Littlebigplanet?! - redhawk766

This game is still a mess even after 3 years of superficial updates and awful band-aid fixes to important issues.

Shouldn't Be Here - VideoGamefan5

Compare to lb1 and 2 this is the worst game ever

38 Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Hey! This game was the best! Screw you and your little opinions! This game is anything but awful!

You seriously have absolutely zero taste in games like this.

So you can diss someone for not liking a game, but they can't even express their opinion. Way to go. - ChocoMint

Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars is 0% bad.

Paper Mario is 23% bad.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is 37% bad.

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is 83% bad.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is 19% bad.

Super Paper Mario is 2% bad.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is 85% bad.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star is 89% bad.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team is 92% bad.

SO WHY IS THIS GAME SO HIGH ON THE LIST?! THIS IS THE BEST RPG EVER, EVEN BETTER THAN FINAL FANTASY AND Pokemon!

There's nothing I don't like about Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars. OK, maybe Princess Peach (who was actually useful and tomboyish in this game) and if not having any luck completing the game. Otherwise, this game is PERFECT! And also, the graphics are outstanding. So is the classic music! So, take this game off the list!

I hope this game trades places with Mario & Luigi: Dream Team or Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. I don't know why, but Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars is now underrated.

YOU PUT THIS GAME ON THE WRONG LIST RETARD - JMaster90x

39 Disney Epic Mickey

I've heard its pretty awful.

It's actually quite good. - Mewbosses

Never really cared for this one but I don't think it should be on the list, let alone higher than Friday the 13th! - Gunner224

This game is fine in my opinion, 3/5 - VideoGamefan5

40 Cheetahmen II

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

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

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

Gee, I wonder why this game was stuck in a warehouse for all those years. - JMaster90x
