Top Ten Video Games That Were the Worst of Their Franchise


The Top Ten

1 Hotel Mario (Super Mario Bros.)

Worst Mario game in gaming history. It's repetitive, boring, lazy, and the voice acting... Almost worster than Bubsy. Crazy. - Chaotixhero

2 Bubsy 3D (Bubsy)
3 Zelda's Adventure (The Legend of Zelda)

If you think the legend of Zelda never had a bad game ever, then you are wrong. There are three terrible ones but this one... Is the only horrible game I can remember. - Chaotixhero

I think maybe ether Zelda cdi link the faces of evil or Zelda cdi the wand of gamelon (only because I've never heard of Zelda's adventure. pretty pathetic right? )

It's a cdi game what do you want to this game
nobody can make a good game on the Philips-CDİ

4 Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon (The Legend of Zelda)
5 Earthworm Jim 3D (Earthworm Jim)
6 Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Sonic The Hedgehog)

I accidentally clicked on this. By the way, you said Zelda had three bad games on your comment for Zelda's Adventure. I believe the other two you were talking about are Faces of Evil and Wand of Gamelon. Those games suck. - RalphBob

At least Shattered Crystal is decent at best. - Chaotixhero

Oh my gosh yes. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Wow. I can't believe its not sonic 06. well sonic 06 is is a pretty good game. please don't jugde my opinion. (witch most people don't. especially when someone likes sonic 06. )

8 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 (Pro Skater)
9 Duke Nukem Forever (Duke Nukem)
10 Super Adventure Rockman (Mega Man)

This game is garbage and it almost ruined mfga man for me. It was a very bad game... Go look at part one of my review on YouTube. - Chaotixhero

12 Super Paper Mario: Super Stickers (Paper Mario)

Not the real name. It's called Sticker Star...

People are stupid loving Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It is a reason why Mario games released int he 20th Century are decreasing on praise?!

13 Dragon Ball Z Sagas (Dragon Ball Z)
14 Pac-Man & The Ghostly Adventures (Pac-Man)

After this game and the sequel, Pac-Man just went... Quiet. - Chaotixhero

RIP Pac-Man World... This is just a bastertized version of it.

The Atari versión is worse

16 Rise of the Robots (Rise of the Robots)
17 Cave Story 3D (Cave Story)
18 Carmageddon 64 (Carmageddon)

It's so boring. Just taking pictures? Really? - Chaotixhero

I want to battle Pokemon! - HeavyDonkeyKong

20 Tales of the Tempest

The G-Saviour of video games. - PerfectImpulseX

21 Dungeon Keeper (Dungeon Keeper)

When I found out that this catastrophe was a reboot of the entire franchise, I realized there is no hope for the series anymore as it will continue in that direction of awfulness. - SelfDestruct

35 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Not a bad game but the gameplay and physics were dumbed down heaps compared to Melee and even 64. - TheMaelstromKing
