42 Bible Buffet

Candy Land + Joke quizzes + LJN's Bible games division = Bible Buffet

LJN's Bible games division? What kind of non-existant game is that? Wisdom tree was the one who made Bible games.

43 The Terminator

The life counter for this game has a one-digit display that maxes out at 6 instead of 9. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

I own the game the only reason why I bought it was because I wanted to see how bad it was the controlls are bad and the music is just a 3 second loop and the enemies copies your movement and you're jumping on q tips its ridicilously bad

This gaem don't fit in mai ps4 nun/10

(To the one who assumes LJN made this) No, no one can say Rainbow of Doom! We's have to be the most imbecilic people to think this is an LJN game, no logo, then it's not an LJN game. Get your facts strait, LJN only published Terminator 2 games!

44 DragonLance: Heroes of the Lance

I love the books, but this game BLOWS.

45 Dick Tracy

Play attention to none of the comments saying that this game deserves to be in the top 10. This is actually a decent games once you get good at it. - LarryLarrington

The most frustrating feature of this game is summed up by the Angry Video Game Nerd (aka James AVGN Rolfe) as follows: "One guy, no continues?! "

Watch the AVGN review. It is so funny & inspiring. Also, it is so true. This game is even worse than Action 52.

Dick Tracy deserves to be in the top 10s. James W. Rolfe would be angry to see Dick Tracy at top 74 instead of the top 5s. After all, he is the Angry Video Game Nerd.

46 Platoon

How is this not higher?

47 Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a crazy cuckoo movie in its own right even without this joke of a game brought to you the Laughing Joking Numbnuts who never stop ruining everything to do with video games!

I had this game as a kid. "Find my number and call me." as opposed to "My number is 555-3825, call me." is typical NES logic at best, but there are exactly zero phones in the game. I didn't figure out it was an IRL number until I turned 19. Our resident laughing joking numbnuts were defunct by then, bought out by Acclaim. Who cares?

Again, just like other games, the top left corner is why this game stinks. - MinecraftHater

48 The Three Stooges

This game is so dumb I wouldn't be surprised if it was made by The Three Stooges!

How did Nintendo power rate this higher than super Mario 3

So let me get this straight! This rated
better than SUPER Mario BROS. 3!

49 Wall Street Kid

Legend of Kage and Super Mario 3 should not be on here. And Castlevania III was one of the best games on the NES.

Who wants to play a game about the stock market?

Do you like math? Then this game is for you.

51 Home Alone

I know this game is bad but it is entertaining since its hard

52 Ninja Gaiden 3

This game was awesome. Sure it only and a few continues, but it's much of an improvement over the original two. Not saying they were bad, in fact they're awesome, but this is the best of the 3 in my book.

Coming from a die hard Ninja Gaiden fan, this game sucks. While NG is known for insane difficulty at least the first two were playable. Both had the problem with respawning enemies and getting knocked back, plus NG2 had the stage hazards. But both games had unlimited continues. Take the frustration of the first 2 games and subtract the continues and you have a game that's even more unfairly difficult than Double Dragon 3

Unfair, but it was an ok game

53 Athena

It should actually be higher, gameplay and graphics suck, but hey- at least the title screen and the story were true.

54 Caveman Games
55 Donkey Kong Jr. Math

Who would want to play a game that's about math?!. Donkey Kong + Math = Epic Fail!. Almost everybody hates math anyway!

I curse the day that this got in the stores. - MinecraftHater

56 Donkey Kong

Mortal Kombat on Sega Genesis is the best video game ever.
I disagree but Donkey Kong is the best.
Donkey Kong sucks!
Wanna know something you suck!

Boring visuals & repetitive gameplay.

Did the kid from Billy Maison put this here?

All Mario games suck

57 Beetlejuice

What were them Laughing Joking Numbnuts thinking!

The only thing I like about this game is the music in the first stage... Everything else sucks

Horrible game by laughing joking numbnuts

58 Lemmings
59 Metal Gear

Just to make it clear, this is the game released for the NES rather than the MSX. The controls are clunky, the soundtrack sound like it was bashed against a brick wall and everything about the original game is completely ignored. Plus, stealth in no longer an option.

I thought this was a good game, but certainly no where near as good as Metal Gear Solid. - LarryLarrington

60 Rocky and Bullwinkle
