Worst Atari 2600 Games

The Top Ten

1 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Product Image

This game sucked so bad

I hate it. I just can’t stand the graphics.

Worst game ever. Raiders of the Lost Ark was a close second. Parents wasted good money on this garbage.

Let's face it, the real ET would never approve of this crazy excuse for a video game. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

2 Custer's Revenge Custer's Revenge Product Image

How is this not #1? This makes E.T. look like gold. E.T. is pretty bad, but it's so bad it's good. This game isn't good in any circumstance.

How is this crazy joke a video game, anyway!

How can you not get offended by this?

3 Haunted House Haunted House Product Image

I loved this game when I was 3. Probably because of my age...

A game more complicated than it needs to be, bad gameplay and even AVGN reviewed the game and he said it sucked

5 minute made crap. - N64Dude

4 Pac-Man Pac-Man Product Image

I thought it was quite good.
Sure it was buggy and the maze was simplistic, but considering the limitations of that time it was good.

5 Indy 500

You can go through the boundaries and come out of the other side. - N64Dude

6 Porky's

Well, it's annoying when you fall into the swamp

7 Space War Space War Product Image

The cover looks AWESOME! The game is boring. - N64Dude

8 Miss Piggy's Wedding

This deserves the number 1 spot. Even E.T was more playable than this monstrosity!

9 Fire Fly
10 Superman Superman Product Image

At least this Superman game wasn't ruined by a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts who also ruined ET, Action 52, Back To The Future, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Bill & Ted, Sonic 06, Terminator 2, the Unholy Triforce, Hotel Mario, Beetlejuice, Friday The 13th, Nightmare On Elm Street, Bubsy 3D, Shaq-Fu, Spirit Of Speed 1937 and a truckload of other games!

The Contenders

11 Karate
12 Golf
13 Double Dragon Double Dragon Product Image

This was a pretty good game...

14 Miniature Golf Miniature Golf Product Image

Only good if you believe in PAR 66 holes

15 Beat'em & Eat'em

20? That's pretty low. I honestly would rather play E.T. than this garbage. - LarryLarrington

16 Ghostbusters 2
17 Gigolo

How this crazy piece of (uh, use your imagination) slipped by quality control is anyone's guess.

18 Star Wars: Jedi Arena Star Wars: Jedi Arena Product Image
19 Red Dead Redemption 2 Red Dead Redemption 2 Product Image

Awful game. - myusernameisthis

20 Shrek: SuperSlam Shrek: SuperSlam Product Image

Not for Atari - myusernameisthis
