Top Ten Worst NES Games


The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends

Seriously, why is this not higher up on the list? The graphics are horrible and they Look like they were made on Microsoft paint. They make ljn games look like works of art. Even Action 52 graphics Look more like nes graphics than this crap. They're the worst graphics I've ever seen in any nes game.

The gameplay is horrendous. You run out of bombs very quickly, which means that most of the time, you're stuck with a charge attack that drains your health. WHAT?! You're only attack (most of the time) is one that causes you to lose health? However, you can get through most, if not all, of the game without having to attack a single damn thing. The hit detection is huge and you can easily die especially since there's no post-hit invincibility. You can switch to another character, who is smaller and has smaller hit detection. He can jump higher, but it's hard to control. However, he can't even do something as simple as walk up stairs. Seriously, that's crappy.

The music is the ...more

Worst graphics and music on the NES. The gameplay is also wretched and the control is terrible.

This should be WAY HIGHER! I hate everything about this game especially the GOD AWFUL MUSIC!

This does not even qualify as a game.

42 The Transformers: Mystery of Convoy

That flashing screens...

43 Castlequest

This is terrible - The8Bit

44 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.

45 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!

46 DragonLance: Heroes of the Lance

I love the books, but this game BLOWS.

47 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 game 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.

Also, two people (actually three if we include you) are on drugs right now. - LarryLarrington

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.

Also unlike half if the games that are above this, this game has more redeeming qualities then there are bad qualities. Now get better taste in gaming. - LarryLarrington

48 Platoon

How is this not higher?

49 Final Fantasy

Get this off the list. It may feel dated compared to newer releases from the series but it isn't a bad game by any means.

Flawed, like Metal Gear & Castlevania 2.

50 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

51 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!

52 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.

53 Muppet Adventure: Chaos at the Carnival

Did Fozzie Bear program this crazy joke?

54 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.

This is actually a great game. Whoever added this has no taste. - LarryLarrington

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

55 Athena

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

56 Caveman Games
57 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

58 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

59 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
