Top Ten Worst Moments In Gaming History

Video games are growing into something good. From platformers to RPGs, games are always doing fun...but there are moments that was dark in gaming days.

The Top Ten

1 Atari almost killed gaming

Atari's awful video game, E.T almost killed gaming forever. It was the worst and I mean THE WORST game in all of history. Luckily, 4 gaming legends saved the day. And they were Pac-Man, Mario, Sonic, and Mega Man. You gaming icons are our heroes. - Chaotixhero

The day when video games industry almost got destroyed. - Delgia2k

How could you atari,almost ended it all

2 PlayStation Network's Shutdown in Early 2011
3 Sony's 2006 E3 Conference

You know 2006 was not a good year for gaming. No not even Sony. You should feel ashamed for yourself Sony. - Chaotixhero

4 Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. movie

This is what I call the dark age of Mario. From terrible education games to the awful Hotel Mario, this were kinda not good for Nintendo ever since Sonic came and stole the spotlight. So Nintendo thought it was a perfect idea to make a Mario movie. Which doesn't sound like a bad idea except... It was in live action. And it sucked bad. - Chaotixhero

Nintendo didn't make the movie. They had very little to do with it.

I actually enjoye dthe movie but it just wasn't Mario in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 Microsoft's 2013 E3 Conference
6 Capcom cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3

I may not be the biggest fan but I love Mega Man however, I hate Capcom. And this just made me so angry. Mega Man Legends 3 was gonna be a thing until Capcom cancelled it and blame the fans for it. Screw you Capcom that is your fault. - Chaotixhero

I like Capcom, but I do have to agree that this is a stupid move. Nintendo should have Mega Man, not Capcom. - dragonoid350

Blaming the fans for the game scancellation I jsut nto all of that so cool in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong
