Worst Super Nintendo Games


The Top Ten

1 Shaq-Fu

Shaq-fu is one of the worst games ever! Shaq-fu should be number one and why is super metroid on this list super metroid is not only the best super Nintendo game ever but is also one of the best games ever!

Terrible controls terrible gameplay one of the worst games of all time and needs to be number one and why is super princess peach on here that is a ds game and why the heck is super metroid on here

What a cheap shirt he is wearing on the cover laugh out loud and the title is ridiculous shaq fu

I played Shaq fu before on my dad's snes and I honestly thought it wasn't that bad.

2 Mario's Early Years: Fun with Letters

I'd rather scratch a chalkboard than listen to the voice acting. - Thepenguinking2

Voice acting just sucks - sagat2010

No one wants to learn in a game -

3 Ballz 3D

Don't try saying the tittle of the game to a kid - sagat2010

This game is terrible I can't believe I own this garbage! Well technically I downloaded this with a bunch of Xbox, Game Boy, SNES, arcade, and Sega Genesis games.

Ballz is what this game can suck

The voice acting is BALLZ!

4 Super 3D Noah's Ark

Why would you want a church-themed FPS? - sagat2010

I don't know why this is on the list this would have to be the best game I've ever played. WOLFENSTEIN. EXCEPT. NOAH'S. ARK. 10/10, 100/100 best game.

It sucked biblical proportions

Whole game was based on a lie in the first place, also wolfenstein 3D

5 Lester the Unlikely

Unlikely to provide you with any fun.

If your main character is afraid of a CRAB, then it pretty much says everything about the quality of your game.

Lester will just run away and you have no control when that happens. He will even run off of cliffs. Imagine if other main characters did that. - VicarSlayer23

Why lester so bad controlling

6 Mario Is Missing

Hey, I can name something else that's missing: FUN!

Hey Mario where are you? It's me Mario! He's not missing - KriCket33554

Why do Yoshi and Mario look high at the beginning of the game?

I can find him by poping in another game

7 Mega Man X2

Laugh out loud this game is great

The person who put this here needs to be shot

WHAT? It was not the best Megaman X game, the first was, BUT COME ON! Megaman X2 was not hard, it was still a classic. The one that put it on this list is a 4 year old. DO NOT LET CHILDREN ON THIS SITE. PLEASE!

I found this one to be easier than the first Mega Man X game. Absolutely no fun in an easy Mega Man game.

8 Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble

I honestly don't think this game is that bad. So what if it's different from the previous games? Just because it's different doesn't mean it's bad.

What is this game even on this list? It was one of the best snes games out there!

Why is this game lollipops underrated?

Get this game of the list

9 Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures

Yeah. Shooting a slingshot! - sagat2010

A daily reminder: someone played the original Pac-Man game, and thought to himself: "You know what Pac-Man needs? Life problems."

A lousy excuse for a game. With a period the Pac-Man is no longer shaped like.

Of course they'd make a sequel with a wimpy Pac-Man.

10 Earthbound

Someone is definitely trolling by placing this game here. It's honestly one of the best RPGs I've ever played... It doesn't necessarily revolutionize gaming or blow all other games out of the water, but it's so charming and so damn fun.

Shoot the kid who post this here

Nope this game is the best In the world

Why is this here - GleamingShadow

The Contenders

11 Bubsy

Bubsy is a Sonic rip-off with HARD levels in the last 3 worlds with crummy sequels with Bubsy 3D being a lazy & cheap Mario 64 ripoff and became the killing blow to the Bubsy games.

I'm trying to figure out how bubsy can be a knock off when it came before super Mario...

"Man, Sonic the Hedgehog would be so much better if it had no hit points, kept repeating level motifs, was more difficult to control, and had awful physics! "
-Said no one, ever

Its trying to be like sonic, but if you get hit only ONCE you're dead. Plus there is fall damage in a platforming game. fail.

The lackluster level design is a chore to play through!

12 Actraiser

Actraiser isn't bad at all, it even had a pretty good reception when it came out. I'm pretty sure whoever's posting these games is a troll/hater.

WHY CAN'T I FIGHT! - sagat2010

13 Rise of the Robots

I've never played this game, but I did see an ad for it once. The ad gushed over the graphics, but said nothing about the gameplay. Probably because it was bad.

This is the worst game ever made.

SO BAD - spodermanfan1000

14 Pit-Fighter

A terrible port of the arcade game. Just try beating this fighting game with just one bar of health, if you didn't lose it to the first guy already. It's even worse than Shaq Fu. Stick with the Genesis version.

And what the hell is Super Princess Peach doing on here that's a DS game! And Super Metroid and Yoshi's Island are awesome, why are they on this list?

This game is one of the worst fighting games to have been released. Lacks of everything... even when I was young I was angry to have spend 5 bucks to rent it.Today at 33 years old and still a retro gaming fan, every time I see this game I can't stop laughing. In my 50 worsts games of all time for sure)

Ah pit fighter commonly known as fighter

Pit Fighter VS Maka Maka
The true contest of awfulness

15 Home Improvement

Tim the Tool Man goes back in time to fight dinosaurs. No, really. I'm not making this up. I'll give $100 to anyone that can make it past the first two levels.

Look, nobody really expects anything spectacular from a "Home Improvement" game, but even with that in mind, no game has the right to be THIS bad.

To be honest I really like this game. - Sojournes2112

16 Captain Novolin

This game says sugar is bad for you. How about this: this game is bad for you.

A video game about diabetes that was probably created to give people diabetes. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

This game teaches you about Diabetes. that's all

It's a boring ass game about diabetes, and there's literally nothing else, except for shooting up some medicine and playing through terrible looking "platforming" stages. Terrible game, never play it, even if you're diabetic.

17 Mario's Time Machine

10/10 confusing as hell

18 Bebe's Kids

You know, I liked this game a LOT better when it was called Turtles in Time, had solid controls and great music, and was, oh what's the word I'm looking for..oh yeah, FUN.

Bebe=baby, baby kid, does babys can have kids?

Ugh one of the worst games of all time! Downright UNPLAYABLE!

P.S. HOW is Mega Man X2, Super Metroid, and Donkey Kong Country 3 even on this list!? This is for the top WORST games on SNES, not the best!

19 Bubsy II

You thought Bubsy 1 was bad? So this game, unbelievably, the sequel of Bubsy is way worse! It has god-awful music, terrible level designs and one of the worst voices in video games! This game should be deleted from existence!

20 Tetris 2

Brilliant. Put blocks together 2. "Hint... It's just Tetris."

This was more Klax than Tetris - sagat2010

Stupider idea than Minecraft 2...

21 Super Metroid

Are you kidding? Anyone who thinks that this is just another "apocalyptic space shooter in robot armor" has obviously never played the game, or is simply bitter because they couldn't make it past the first area. This game is a MASTERPIECE. The environment is amazing, the upgrades are badass, and the world is so developed and intricate that I'd go so far as to say that it's the most intricate exploration-based game I've ever played. If anything, MORE modern games should be like this.

Never understood the appeal of this difficult game. Maybe if it had never existed and launched the ubiquitous apocalyptic space shooter in robot armour genre, we'd have a lot more variety in games today. Yeah, I have a grudge because I was given this instead of Donkey Kong.

It's a good game. I hated the one on the Wii, but I liked this one. I don't know why, but I thought that the graphics were actually GOOD.

Horrible is not worth a spot on this list

22 Hong Kong 97

"A herd of ugly reds are rushing from the mainland". Before anyone asks me, yes, its actually the story - CasinLetsGoBowling

Hong Kong 97 was never released on the super Nintendo the cover art pictures on Google are fake and there's no picture of a cartridge

Great game, graphics, gameplay, also: the person above is gay

Your goal is to kill at least 3 MILLION Chinese citizens. not even GTA5 can match that level of brutality - Frouze

23 Space Ace

Jontron explains it all

By far the worst game of all time. Play it and you will hate it! TERRIBLE!

The nerd needs to do this one

24 Bronkie the Bronchiasaurus

Look, if I wanted to learn about asthma, I would just visit my local doctor, just keep it out of my video games!

A stupid educational game where you play as a dinosaur with asthma.

25 Mega Man X

Mega Man X is an awesome Game! Whoever put this game here must be assassinated by Mega Man X himself!

Best megaman game on the console in my opinion- put this off please.

Have you even played the game, whoever put it here? - Frouze

Who ever put dis here...MUST DIE

26 The Wizard of Oz

Worst and most unfair SNES games ever - Artattack

Too bad the Wizard couldn't grant a wish for a game that was actually fun to play.

It's equivalent to crap. Totally unfair with weird jump mechanics.

Worst platforming ever

27 Killer Instinct

How is THIS a Mortal Kombat clone? Just because it's a fighting game with blood? No, this game is amazing.

Killer Instinct is based on combos rather than brute strength. It isn't the most original, but it was fun anyways. But, the name "Riptor" for a raptor was the worst thing ever.

This is the best fighting game on SNES. Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter should be here instead.

No way! This game is awesome, listen to James Rolfe in Sega Genesis vs SNES part 2!

28 Drakkhen

Do you know what goes on in this game? I sure don't.

29 Faceball 2000

I actually really enjoy this game! it takes time to get used to, but its amusing

My favorite part was when you died and the enemy says HAVE A NICE DAY. I love this game and it�'s graphics are impressive for 1992.


30 Race Drivin'
31 Super Mario World

MegaGoku is a idiot. Super Mario World is the best video game ever!

This game is so stupid

This Game Sucks - MegaGoku

Wost game ever

32 Batman Forever

Really crappy game with nonsensical controls.

It's a BATMAN game you hate BATMAN or something (the movie was kinda bad but still)BATMAN


33 Packy & Marlon

It's a game about diabetic elephants.. it's really about as good as you'd expect.

34 Wolfenstein 3D

Why is this on the list?

Play the PC version.

A terrible port of a classic PC game

35 Barbie: Super Model


36 Mario's Early Years: Fun with Numbers
37 Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends

Well...it's a Thomas the Tank Engine game. What more needs to be said?

Game is very short.

38 Battletoads & Double Dragon

The NES version is much better.

39 Donkey Kong Country

Shouldn't be listed on here, dk country was a great game


40 Maka Maka

The worst RPG ever!

41 The Incredible Crash Dummies

The only real dummies here are the people who made this trash heap.

Oh No! It's Laughing Joking Numbnuts Again With Another Crappy Game!

42 The Rocketeer
43 Street Combat
44 Last Action Hero

The worst game I have ever played.

I am curious, does it have ANGRY AGAIN in the playlist like it did in the movie...

I WOULD ONLY BUY this for MEGADETH Purpsosesesesesees

45 Terminator 2: Judgement Day

The driving stages are near impossible.

Awful gameplay and awful driving stages!

Another video game ruined by Laughing Joking Numbnuts...

46 Wayne's World

The only reason why this game is not ranked higher if because few people have had the chance to experience just how bad it is. ZERO redeeming features.

47 Aero the Acrobat 2 - Nintendo Super NES

Yes really: someone played the original Aero and thought "Gee, I hope Sunsoft makes more of these! " Granted, this isn't AS boring as the first game, but that's not saying much. Also, one of the supporting characters in this series got their own spin-off, but really, I'm not even gonna bother with it. If I didn't give a crap about these games, what makes you think that I'm gonna play a spin-off of it? All in all, I can see why Aero didn't exactly catch on with the likes of Sonic: Sonic's games (Well, the original genesis trilogy) were fast-paced, well designed, controlled tightly, and never lose their luster. I just can't say the same about Aero.
2.5/5 (Bad)

I liked the first but this one is NOT better at all. 2/5.

48 Hokuto No Ken 7

Worst HNK game EVER!

49 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

I personally have this game on the SNES and Gameboy and I never can understand how bad the controls are. The slide is your main attack and it can only kill a few enemies and some are invincible and can't be killed at all. There is a guy who will follow you without going away and why are there suitcases that jump on their own? Cluttered mess that doesn't make sense.

50 Ultraman

Haha nintendo magazine system voted this THE worst game of all time
