Top Ten Video Games That James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd) Hates


The Top Ten

1 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is both the Angry Video Game Nerd's least favourite NES game AND his least favourite 19th-century licensed property. No matter who made said game, they gave Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde the LJN treatment!

The game he hates the most - bobbythebrony

I can see why this is the game he hates the most. It's not remotely fun.

Oh, boy.

2 Superman 64

Not even Superman is spared from the LJN treatment!

3 Ghostbusters: The Video Game

Why the hell is the Xbox 360 version on here?! He plays games from BEFORE the 2000s. Besides, this game is great!

I think you meant the NES version. THAT version sucks.

They mean the NES version. Some idiot put the "new" game as the image. - Lasvegasxavier

4 Beetlejuice

Thanks to a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts who never stop ruining everything to do with video games, the worst NES games ever reviewed by the Angry Video Game Nerd are as follows:
5. Beetlejuice (this game)
4. Little Red Hood
3. Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (the Nerd's least favourite NES game)
2. Action 52 (52 glitch-riddled joke games in 1)
1. Bill & Ted's NES Adventure (gameplay is even more absurd than Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde AND you give Elvis a gravestone instead of a guitar)

Wow, some dumb ass thinks Little Red Hood, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Action 52 are LJN. Are you delusional? LJN sucks don't get me wrong, but stop blaming them for games they didn't even make.

5 Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

Villian: Oh! You killed me!

What a game. - Delgia2k

6 Action 52

At least that infamous Atari 2600 game brought to you by the letters E and T (as well as three additional letters which stand for the unholy rainbow stamp of death) is ONE crazy dysfunctional video game, not 52.

Actually, it doesn't stand for the unholy stamp of death, it stands for Atari is finished. - LarryLarrington

It's like that pile of floppies your dad's buddy gave you for the Tandy 1000, or that your computer teacher had in a box for the Apple IIe but only broke out when you were REALLY sick of Oregon Trail. Except that you could be playing Super Mario Brothers instead of any of these...

7 Dick Tracy

No one can blame the Angry Video Game Nerd for going bonkers over the absence of continues in this tricky game.

8 Who Framed Roger Rabbit

But how can you hate a game that gives you a sex hotline number

James Rolfe does not want anyone playing it. A upcoming sequel is in the works which had Roger Rabbit, Baby Herman, Eddie Valiant, Benny the Cab, Judge Doom, the villainous Weasels and Ron Stoppable. Former toon star Roger Rabbit is heartbroken as Jessica Rabbit is impaled by someone. He joins Eddie Valiant and Benny the Cab as they find clues to Jessica Rabbit's death but Judge Doom and his villainous Weasels are also on Roger Rabbit's trail, allowing Roger Rabbit and Ron Stoppable to become frightened. Cameo Appearances: Merida, Darkwing Duck, Aladdin, Izzy (Jake & the Neverland Pirates), Isabella (Phineas & Ferb), Snuffy Smith, Sofia the First, Rapunzel (Tangled), Vanellope Von Schweetz, Anna & Elsa (Frozen), Remy (Ratatouille), Yendor Talbneerg (Dazzeloids), Anne Dilly Whim (Dazzeloids), Zoe Trent (Littlest Pet Shop), Karina Ivanov (Littlest Pet Shop), Anne Marie (All Dogs Go to Heaven; currently voiced by Ashleigh Ball) and Diddy Kong (from a DS racing game) among several more. - playstationfan66

9 Silver Surfer

Toughest NES game ever

The real Silver Surfer would NEVER approve of this NES game: you die!


You touch a wall, you die, you touch the floor, you die, you touch the ceiling you die, you die, you die, you die die die die DIE! - MinecraftHater

10 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

As the worst video game ever, this game should be number 1 on the list.

Nah, I'll admit it's terrible. But I'd rather play this than Cluster's Revenge. But I think #1 would be a better spot for the nerd. - LarryLarrington

This game was unearthed by a group of people in a local landfill a few years ago. - playstationfan66

Like Action 52 and Sonic 06, this game was ruined by a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts who probably tried to program the whole doggone thing in a week.

Actually, neither one of those games were LJN, nor is this. Get your facts straight. - LarryLarrington

The Contenders

11 Castlevania II: Simon's Quest

"What a horrible night to have a curse" is a running gag in this game.

This should be in the top 5.

12 Friday the 13th
13 Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

The Nerd closed out his review of this game with a lengthy rant beginning with "Was there any quality control here?! "

I'd rather watch the movie than play this crazy excuse for a video game brought to you by Laughing Joking Numbnuts (note the Angry Video Game Nerd's accurate name for ljn). Worst NES game ever!

The worst NES game ever reviewed by the Angry Video Game Nerd contains gameplay even more absurd than Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde AND you give Elvis a gravestone instead of a guitar. Of course, both of said games were ruined by a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts who also ruined three Zelda CDi games too many!

14 Lester the Unlikely

Lester out without warning during gameplay is among the worst running gags in video game history. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

15 Desert Bus

Worst driving "game" ever

16 Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

"Not suitable for mature audiences" is an accurate assessment of this crazy excuse for a 3DO game, unlike nonsense like "The box says 17, but for this ONE PART, you gotta be 18"

An interactive romantic comedy: a plumber, a daddy's girl, chickens, crazed yuppies, evil bosses, shower scenes, race cars, pandas, a nun... Get it? No, I don't get it! No wonder this crazy poorly-thrown-together farce is the subject of the Angry Video Game Nerd's best episode ever.

17 Little Red Hood

Probably the worst video game based on a book license...

Yet another video game ruined by a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts who also ruined ET, Superman 64, Action 52, Terminator 2, Bill & Ted, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Sonic 06, Back To The Future, the Unholy Triforce, Hotel Mario, Friday The 13th, Nightmare On Elm Street, Bubsy 3D, Spirit Of Speed 1937 and a truckload of other games!
Purple for putrid gameplay... Check!
Blue for bad musical abominations... Check!
Green for graphical farts and garlic... Check!
Yellow for piss-poor lack of loyalty to source material... Giant economy-sized check, since they figured that butchering children's nursery tales is fair game too.
Orange for orange you a big idiot... Check, since our heroine is shown kicking bad guys on the cover but doesn't do so in the game itself.
Red for high-stress anger-inducing masochism... Giant economy-sized check!

18 Sonic 2006
19 Dark Castle

Dark Castle on Sega Genesis and CDi is another candidate for Worst Video Game Controls Ever. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

20 Back to the Future

The relevant Back To The Future games (plural) are two NES games and a Sega Genesis game featured in the Nerd's 94th episode. (The Famicom version of Back To The Future featured in said episode receives bonus points for being a good game instead of an abysmal joke ruined by a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts who also ruined ET, Sonic 06, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Superman 64, Action 52, Bill & Ted, Friday The 13th, Nightmare On Elm Street, the Unholy Triforce, Hotel Mario and a truckload of other games! )

Okay who put the ps3 version as the image? - bobbythebrony

21 A Nightmare on Elm Street

This game has a 4-player mode? What were them Laughing Joking Numbnuts thinking!

That's right. It's by the same company. We're not gonna say who it is, but it stands for laughin joking numbnuts - PCgamer98

22 Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

This "racing game" was probably programmed by the Glitch Gremlin.

23 Milon's Secret Castle

Made by Hudson, ruined by LJN. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

24 Fester's Quest

Gun upgrades which make your ammo go around enemies? This crazy game was probably programmed by the Addams Family.

25 Wizard of Oz

A Wizard Of Oz video game with countless tricky jumps? Apparently, it isn't absurd enough that the movie (ca. 1939) and book (ca. 1900) versions of The Wizard Of Oz have been stuck in copyright limbo for such a long time.

26 Karate Champ

He claims it to have the worst controls he's ever played in a game.

27 Tagin' Dragon
28 Alf
29 The Ren & Stimpy Show: Fire Dogs
30 Rocky and Bullwinkle
31 Hotel Mario
32 Link: The Faces of Evil

The Laughing Joking Numbnuts who ruined three Zelda CDi games too many released two of said games on the same day in 1993: this game and Zelda Wand Of Gamelon.

33 The Bugs Bunny Birthday Blowout
34 Ninja Gaiden II
35 Crazybus
36 Last Battle (Sega Genesis)
37 The Crow: City of Angels
38 Bubsy 3D

Hate or Don't Hate, belongs on the list because it's the worst game ever made. - mattstat716

Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!
Bubsy + PlayStation + Laughing Joking Numbnuts = Bubsy 3D

39 Paperboy (NES)
40 Terminator 2 (Snes)

Don't get me started on the crazy motorcycle levels in this game!

41 Zelda's Adventure
42 Darkwing Duck (Turbografx 16)

The real Darkwing Duck would never approve of this crazy excuse for a video game.

43 The Unholy Triforce

What were the Laughing Joking Numbnuts who ruined three Zelda CDi games too many thinking, anyway... no, What's on second!

44 Circus Caper

"Killed by invisible air space? Stupidest thing I've ever seen"

45 Town & Country Surf Designs
46 Frankenstein

This game was probably programmed by Frankenstein T. Monster...

47 Hydlide

Indiana Jones music, Zelda monster rejects, a clumsy save system and tedious XP grinding all in the same game

48 Winter Games (Nes)
49 Sunday Funday
50 Custer's Revenge
