Worst Atari 2600 Games

The Top Ten

1 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

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

I feel like there are worse Atari games out there, though those games barely even qualify as games so you'd probably know why.

Hey, just be glad it was at least playable. You could be playing Miss Piggy's Wedding right now.

To the comment that thinks LJN made this, no, no one in the right mind can say rainbow of doom, stop blaming LJN for everything, this game was actually made by one of the best developers despite being awful.

2 Custer's Revenge

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

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

4 Indy 500

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

5 Pac-Man

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.

6 Porky's
7 Space War

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 Superman

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!

10 Karate

The Contenders

11 Beat'em & Eat'em

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

12 Ghostbusters 2
13 Gigolo

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