Top 10 Video Game Fails We Wish Never Happened

These made gamers face palm & wish they never happened.

The Top Ten

1 The Crash of 1983

Horrible, right? Atari 2600 version of PAC-Man & E.T. were so horrible.

2 Sega 32X

It would be great if this never existed.

3 Sega Nomad

Horrible handheld console. Also, this was only released in North America.

4 Phantom Console

This was never released.

5 3DO Interactive Multiplayer

3DO doesn't deserve to make video game consoles. If you think they shouldn't be a video game company either, I agree with you.


This was never released. Nintendo & Sony were working together to make a CD based add-on for the SNES. Things didn't work out, and Sony made the PlayStation themselves.

7 Atari not working with Nintendo

When the Famicom became a success in Japan, Nintendo decided to release outside the country. When they planned on releasing it in North America, they wanted to work with Atari, but the deal never went through after Atari found Donkey Kong on Coleco's platform. So, Nintendo went alone with the NES. It's also surprising that history later repeated itself & Nintendo was supposed to work with Sony.

9 Colecovision
10 Apple Pippin

The Contenders

11 Nintendo's 3 game partnership with Sonic

I'm glad Nintendo cared, and we got lots of hope from this, but look at what our hopes turned into! Sonic Lost World is a very mixed game, but good or bad, it was a huge disappointment. Mario and Sonic and the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games was a mediocre sequel that shouldn't have even been part of the deal, as it would happen anyway. And don't even get me started on Sonic Boom. - PeterG99
