Top Ten Worst NES GamesClevername
The Top Ten
Action 52 is still my least favorite game of all time.
The games are loaded with multiple bugs and glitches, crashing, atrocious controls, random characters, super tiny sprites, dying in mid-air, proportion problems, misleading titles and power-ups, unorthodox weapons, eye-straining backgrounds, enemies not showing up, impossible wins and losses, lack of sense, horrible graphics, musics, menus, and so much more.
This game is so bad that it's in a different league of bad compared to the others on this list. - evoxpisces
This crazy joke is so pathetic they forgot to slap the Rainbow Of Doom brought to you by Laughing Joking Numbnuts on it!
There's a kid that says that Dick Tracy is worse then this. That kid deserves to lose his head (I don't care how harsh I'm sounding, that's literally one of the dumbest things I've ever heard) for his bad taste. Because no one in the right mind would think that Dick Tracy (a game that's actually good, well somewhat) is worse than Action 52 (fifty-two atrocious games). - LarryLarringtonV 17 Comments
Have you even played this game! It is bad beyond its normal definition. Playing this game is like playing catch with a chimpanzees frozen turd in the zoo. But even that is more fun than playing Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde for one second.
100% unbearable, it's so bad that broke my copy. I was expecting a good game until I played this PIECE OF CRAP, I consider it the HARDEST GAME I EVER PLAYED could not get past LEVEL 4.
The bombs have unlimited range the controls are horrible the graphics are the worst the box arts stupid the consent is stupid THIS GAME IS STUPID - Agilitydustman
Adaptations between literary classics and video games usually don't work very well, as is the case here.V 19 Comments
Who would want to color a dinosaur?
At least this coloring game has a fill option, unlike a certain MS Paint ripoff brought to you by Laughing Joking Numbnuts.
Where's Waldo? Good question, everybody almost looks like waldo
Graphics look like vomit. That's what this game is!
At least all the others are at least games... How do you call this a game
It sucks! Besides You can beat it in 6 MINUTES!V 4 Comments
A couple years ago I got a lot of game for NES and I saw this one. I figured it would be like Kung Fu. Boy was I wrong. I actually thought there was something wrong with my controller. This game has the worst controls in the history of gaming. The graphics are bad too. The players never move from where they are and the scenery is boring. It's an all around terrible game. My personal least favorite game on NES.
The graphics are bad, even for a NES game, and the controls are a joke.
THE WORST CONTROL EVER!
The password system sucks
This should be first, not action 52, as action 52 isn't even a real game.
Way too difficult!
I remember seeing this on cristmas, I hated itV 1 Comment
I'd rather watch the movie than play this crazy excuse for a video game with such an absurd approach to said movie. Worst... NES... Game... EVER!
This comment makes no sense. Why are you comparing the movie to the game? Obviously the movie is better. And this is far from being the worst NES game. - LarryLarrington
This game makes little sense. Giving a famous criminal an Uzi? I'd think Edison would want an elephant-sized electric chair, not a CD someone living many decades before lasers existed would ever want.
I think Elvis would want a guitar, not a gravestone. Giving Cleopatra a credit card? What were them Laughing Joking Numbnuts thinking... No, What's on second! I'm not asking you who's on second. Who's on first. I don't know... THIRD BASE!
What were they thi thinking ABOUT giving illogical items to certain people in history? Imagine someone giving you a gravestone for your death. Bill and Ted are jerks. This game might be the worst lgn game for nesV 4 Comments
See the top left corner of the box? That's why this game stinks.
Another video game ruined by Laughing Joking Numbnuts
This game is so boring
Published by LJN, developed by Beam Software. This had no chance of being not-bad. It's just a matter of if you toss it against the wall or out a third-story window.V 3 Comments
The Commodore 64 version of Ghostbusters was much better.
The Sega Genesis version is great. - MinecraftHater
It's so glitchy, it puts sonic 06 to shame. It ruined a beloved series from the Atari 2600. Stick to the atari version
This game was a super pitfall.
Bad graphics, bad controls, and too cryptic
In Japan, there was a sequel of Super Pitfall called Atlantis no Nazo.
THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER 1! Because it did a horrible job on making a Godzilla game. This is the worst Godzilla game, worst NES game, and WORST GAME OF ALL TIMES! WORST THAN SUPERMAN N64! Don't play this game at all! - asantalo
Let's face it, the Laughing Joking Numbnuts who never stop ruining everything to do with video games didn't learn a thing from their first Back To The Future NES game.
Just like Dragons Lair, this game should be almost as high as Action 52. - LarryLarrington
No matter who programmed this crazy joke, they gave it the LJN treatment. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!
Guys, you realize LJN isn't a programming company right? They just publish the games that gaming companies give them...
PS: I have played this game when I was 7 or 8 years old.V 1 Comment
Hardest NES game at least
I actually kind of like this game, especially the music. But the difficulty is unfair.
One of the hardest games ever
The OST is amazing.V 2 Comments
Another video game ruined by Laughing Joking Numbnuts...
Seriously? Silver Surfer's in the top ten, but this game isn't? Makes no sense. - LarryLarrington
Three words: Laughing Joking Numbnuts
Probably the top 3 worst LJN games on the NES.
Probably? I think you mean definitely. In fact, this is one of my top 3 worst NES games in general. - LarryLarringtonV 3 Comments
One of the worst cobtrolls ever
To jump, press up. That's logical, if not standard for the NES. To jump forward, press DOWN! Pick up items by holding A and pressing down, instead of just walking over them like a normal platformer. And that's all in the first minute. As an aside, Robert E Howard and HP Lovecraft were close associates, and the Cimmerians get a shout-out in Mountains of Madness. This game requires the alien mind of a Lovecraftian abomination just to get through the first level, so, the developers were geniuses?
This game isn't that bad. It has flaws, but its at least playable. And the music is good.
Fester's Quest or Fester's Joke Game?
I don't really think this deserves to be this high. I don't really find it that bad of a game. - LarryLarrington
Actually kind of decent. It's hard, but the music is pretty good.V 1 Comment
I know this game is bad but it is entertaining since its hard
If you have one of the 1500 cartridges known to exist, it's hard to tell whether or not you are lucky or living in a dumpster. This game takes the first Cheetah men game and sprinkles magical crap dust all over it. I bet if you look in the dictionary for "Glitch", you will soon find footage of the gameplay that was released to Earth as a warning shot by Satan.
This crazy joke was released in pre-alpha stage.
Cheetahmen 2 is not only crap, it's crap with a hefty price! Why would you want to pay $1500 for this game? You'd be better of spending that much on good games!
