Worst Gaming Consoles

21 Sega Neptune

32X was suppose to be the Sega Neptune. But, it would have a different look. But, it would be a great idea. But, if it was used we would have the Dreamcast around 2003. Or if the sega neptune was published we wouldn't even have a dreamcast.

It wasn't released people - RandomGuy456

Sega mars, sega Pluto, sega Jupiter, sega mercury, sega Venus, sega Uranus, those would've been the the names of all sega's consoles if they were still 1st party developers - Sanicball

It didn't exist stupid - BlueSheepYT

22 Sega Saturn

The Saturn had a TERRIBLE marketing campaign. The biggest mistake Sega did was making the console extremely difficult to program for, especially 3D games. This means that nobody was able to push the hardware to it's limits. The hardware is more powerful than the PlayStation's, but it rendered in quads instead of triangles, forcing 3D designers to change every model for the Saturn to render.

It's game library was very lacking, with not many games that people remember. (Although there are exceptions, like NiGHTS Into Dreams, House of the Dead, Radiant Silvergun, among a few others)

It did quite well in Japan, but the western regions bought PlayStations and N64s instead. Perhaps if the marketing was much better and the development of games were easier, it could have saved it, and the Dreamcast.

I first played the Sega Saturn at an exhibition (in 2012) I played nights into dreams, it wasn't the best game but at least it's playable. The controller wasn't the original one OH NO it was a hulk sized 3d controller. That is the biggest controller I've ever seen. They're even bigger than the duke Xbox controller

The problems were no Sonic games, odd commercials, and it was found to be too difficult to develop for.

Success in Japan. Failure in North America and Europe.

23 Atari 2600

Wow. This is on here because it has E.T. on it? This was the longest living game console EVER. And there are WAY worse games than E.T.

How did the system make it on the list even though it was largely successful?

Hey there were lots of good games here you know, like pacman space invaders and pitfall. Why on earth is this here

Get this of the list. Now

24 Hyperscan

Why isn't this even in the top 10? This is the worst console ever. The cards don't work, there's only 5 games released, and all of them are TERRIBLE ABOMINATIONS.

Hyper-SCAM is as phony as a three-dollar bill.

This system was published in 1996 wait did I say 1996? I mean 2006.

What do the hyper-SCAM and all 5 or 6 of its games (ignoring homebrews) have in common? They're rated T for TERRIBLE!

Lmfao this isn't even a legit console

26 Nokia N-Gage

No one will live this down. It appears twice because of its complete flaw of existence

So bad it has to be here twice!

Twice again? - jwaughtal

27 Phantom

this system was so god awful that was not even released that is why it should belong on this list - florida000

28 Nintendo 2DS

The 3ds was awesome, but this sucks!

I love this console! People don't like it because it doesn't have the flap. So, who cares. It might actually be better that way. When I got a DS lite, I loved it! Until we were babysitting a family. Two of the boys in the family wanted to play on it.(My brother had one too.) So we gave our DS's to them. The 3 year old boy took good care of it. But the 6 year old boy broke the flap. It was my brothers. So he didn't play with it anymore. So the Wii u should be higher than this!

Why? All I cared about is playing the games, I don't use any of that idiotic shop or mii verse or 3d and the flap is just stupid because you aren't gonna carry it around anyway. In my mind, its just saving money.

GUYS, it's similar to the 3DS, just without the 3D effect and the hinges. It's better for people with visionary problems. Plus, it contains all sorts of games on it. Get this off this list, yee siren!

29 Action Max

The games are more interactive games than gaming - coffeeberzerk

30 Xbox

This was just awful how is it so far down the list? It was just a massive brick the controller was a massive brick. The only really good games were Halo and Jet set radio future. Bad lack of games. I really like the 360 I suppose this console was bad most likely because it was Microsofts first attempt.

The original Xbox is ok, the Xbox 360 is ok but it has a bad fanbase and the casual games are horrible, - Harri666

Most powerful console of the 6th generation. - USGC

I enjoyed my Xbox 360 but before that I owned a ps2 and a n64 which were far superior to the original Xbox you literally only got the first Xbox for halo...one game wooo... Now I could go on and on about all the games you could play that were amazing for n64 and ps2 but the consoles high praise speak for themselves. Plus compare the Xbox to the ps2 and the Xbox looks stupid and outdated.

31 Apple Pippin

Wasn't this on a higher place?

32 Chintendo Vii

What is with the name. It just says Wii'S lesser twin. Insult to games. Why do people knock-off good consoles and make farces out of them. Ugh. This thing should die

Maybe this was intended to mock Nintendo Wii

A parody of wii which everybody hates

Probably from Nintendo's self-parody division...

33 Game com

Has horrible games and ports from famous franchise or movies and why would anybody want to buy a black and white handheld console that is made in 1997?! And it has an internet (text only) I can't believe it imagine using this to text people and you can't leave your house because you need a wire for the internet why not just use a computer!?

It's a crappy a handheld made by Tiger Electronic and the games are on Mini Cartridges and most game are popular franchise ports and why would anybody want to play a black and white handheld?! Its released in the 1997?! It's the time where GBC is alive?!

It's pronounced game com, not game dot com.

34 Nuon

The hell is a nuon

It was a console that used cd technology and was made by all these random companies

35 Intec Interact Console

This is what I said to a friend about this console:

"Believe lt or not, I just found one WORSE than the Hunting 60. It's called the Intec Interact. While, '60', 'Air 60' & 'Hunting 60', are at least good names, 'Interact', is not. It's another bad Wii knockoff. It only has three games, all of which are bad compilations of minigames. One just consists of sports games, one of ripoff games & one of musical games. The graphics are Genesis level. The remote is too' tiny to grip & has two of each A & B button. The controls are y, as in the golf game, you use Start to swing. You can't even find the Interact on Intecs website. Rumor has lt that a company is pretending to be Intec to steal their fans. Unlike the 60 series, the Interact is not interactive or 3D, even though lt's advertised to be. Also, the audio is MONO only. One guy said that he ordered a SEGA Genesis & when he tried lt, lt didn't work. He took lt apart to find that lt was full to the BRIM with cockroach corpses. ...more

Sports games (8 in 1): Place Kick Soccer, Bowling, Tennis, Fishing, Ping Pong, Golf, Baseball, T.V. Boxing.
Misc. games (32 in 1): Snake, Square, Diamond, Archery, Shudu, Fire Man, Lawn Purge, Zuma, Boxes World, Bee Fighting, Tank, Shooting Balloons, Pro Crack, Fish War, Aquamix, Duel Soccer, Maze Pac, Pets Crossing, Hammer, Rugged Hammer, Harry, Loop Legend, Fancy, Farm Keeper, Smart Bomber, Tiger Man, Golden Gate, Apex Gun, Pixie Princess Dandelion Of The Death Knell, Over Speed, Motor Storm, Highway Racing

Only three known cartridges: 8-in-1, 32-in-1 and 89-in-1 (Don't ask! ).

At least this joke console isn't the worst Wii knockoff ever thanks to the Wii-U.

36 PCP Station

What is a PCP station? I feel like maybe this was just a code word for angels dust. - austincrazycat

37 Pioneer LaserActive

Has expensive price, need bundles of expensive add on to play on this, the games you play is like watching a movie and lastly horrible games that come to this garbage

It costs $2,500. Really. Just that much for a system that has no games to play on it.

It plays laser disc games making it the first gaming console using laser disc but the game are primitive its like Sega CD games and you need bundle of add on

Almost as bad as the CD-I & 3DO, the LazerActive is an overpriced piece of junk centered on bad, obsolete technology. It also requires you to purchase expensive add-ons to work. Despite lt being one of the three worst consoles of the 1990's, the 3 P's (Philips, Panasonic, Pioneer), there's not much to say about lt. An idea that doesn't work.

38 Atari Lynx

Who put this on here? This thing was awesome, you could play Gauntlet on this thing, gauntlet, in your pocket! I'd buy it again just to have that ability.

Not only was it huge, but also batteries drained and ran for $190.

39 Watara Supervision
40 Ouya

The hell is ouya

Calm down it was only $99.
