Top 10 Worst Video Game and Console Ideas


The Top Ten

1 Bubsy 3D

I mean... They though it was a good idea... - aarond09

"What could possibly go wrong? " They asked.
"Bubsy 3D is fun." They said.

Bubsy + PlayStation + Laughing Joking Numbnuts = Bubsy 3D

2 Philips CDI

The console that gave us the Unholy Triforce

3 R.O.B. (Robotic Operating Buddy)

He doesn't work with black and white televisions. - RalphBob

4 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (Atari)

Worst video game EVER!

Purple for putrid gameplay... Check, since this game contains so many pits that it IS the pits (rotten joke intended).
Blue for bad musical abominations... Check!
Green for graphical farts and garlic... Check!
Yellow for piss-poor lack of loyalty to source material... Giant economy-sized check!
Orange for orange you a big idiot... Check, since you might think this is a decent game based on the artwork on the cartridge.
Red for high-stress anger-inducing masochism... Giant economy-sized check!

5 Virtual Boy

Only about 15 or 20 games were made for this joke console.

It can hurt your eye sight

6 Hotel Mario

Yet another absurd case of video game icons misused under license...

7 Link: The Faces of Evil

The Laughing Joking Numbnuts who ruined three Zelda CDi games too many released two of what is pretty much the same game on the same day in 1993: this game and Zelda Wand Of Gamelon.

8 Xbox One

Microsoft should honestly stick to operating systems not consoles and phones. - PerfectImpulseX

Why would I pay for a 500 dollar cablebox to watch T.V. on, when I can buy a used T.V. for 300 dollars, that doesn't require drm? can you answer that Microsoft? - Frouze

The crowd Boo's all over it at 2013's E3 and can tell the detection of an awful console, the guy says "oh you need to play Online 24/7 and you must never get off or else" that doesn't sound great that's bull talk and also it's original purpose was focus on T.V. so overall this is not for hardcore gamers it targets kind of towards who the hell knows who it's targeted too this console pissed me off to hell and I bet all those former Microsoft fans agree with me "DAM YOU Microsoft" for stabbing me in the back by making such a stupid idea I mean just WHY and don't tell me it's profit that's a bullsh!t excuse - htoutlaws2012

9 Atari Jaguar

A top-loading game console with no dust cover? What a big ripoff!

Did that thing just growl at me

10 Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

Just because you play as Zelda in this game doesn't mean it's a good Zelda game.

The Contenders

11 Chintendo Vii

Probably from Nintendo's self-parody division...

Wow! Nice Nintendo Wii rip-off ya got there! - aarond09

12 Wii U

Worst Wii knockoff EVER!

I don't hate it but...
Don't ya think Nintendo's taken their games to a more childish level?
Its their graphics in HD
(Wind Waker HD your fine. )
But it's a good console... - aarond09


13 Bible Adventure (Color Dreams)

At least this cartridge contains three dysfunctional games (Noah's Ark, Baby Moses, David & Goliath), not 52 (like with Action 52).

I'm not anti-religious (i'm a Christian. So don't flame me because of my belief)
I just though the game wasn't good. - aarond09

Color Dreams + Bible + Laughing Joking Numbnuts = Wisdom Tree = LJN's Bible games division

14 Custers Revenge

How is this crazy joke a video game, anyway!

I would love to see the devastation of a company rebooting this game in today's ultra touchy-feely society. - Xean45

15 Night Trap

Worst Sega CD game ever

16 LJN LJN LJN Toys, Limited was an American toy company and video game publisher in operation from 1970 to 1995. It manufactured toy lines and released battery operated water guns and video games based on licensed properties from movies, television shows, and celebrities.

Instead of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple (starting from the outside edge), the order of colors on that infamous rainbow of doom brought to you by Laughing Joking Numbnuts is as follows: "PURPLE for putrid gameplay, BLUE for bad musical abominations, GREEN for graphical farts and garlic, YELLOW for piss-poor lack of loyalty to source material, ORANGE for Orange you idiot and RED for high-stress anger-inducing masochism"

LJN is the Angry Video Game Nerd's least favourite three-letter word.

Worst video game company EVER!

"Ah, LJN. What we're dealing with here is a s***** game-making machine. It's really a miracle of electronic evolution. All this machine does is joke and cheat and make s***** games, and that's all."

LJN the video game company is short for Laughing Joking Numbnuts because they're a bunch of Laughing Joking Numbnuts (capitalized on purpose) who never stop ruining everything to do with video games! Terminator 2, ET, Action 52, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Bill & Ted, Back To The Future, Superman 64, Beetlejuice, Friday The 13th, Nightmare On Elm Street, Little Red Hood, Karate Kid, Roger Rabbit, Dick Tracy, Sonic 06, Sonic R, Sonic Labyrinth, Aquaman Battle For Atlantis, T&C Surf Designs, Gotcha The Sport, Jaws, MK Mythologies, Awesome Possum, Shaq-Fu, the Unholy Triforce, Hotel Mario, Bubsy 3D, Rascal, Dark Castle, Captain Novolin, Radical Rex, Spirit Of Speed 1937... the list goes on and on!

V 1 Comment
17 Gizmondo

Another handheld joke console that's no better than the r-zone or game-com or virtual boy (note the lowercase letters)

18 Little Red Hood

Little Red Hood is probably the worst video game based on a book license: botching children's nursery tales this badly is among the lowest lows in video game history.

No matter who programmed this crazy excuse for a video game, they gave Little Red Riding Hood the LJN treatment.

19 Intec Interact

This joke console contains an unusually large amount of accessories for a game system with 8 sports games (Place Kick Soccer, Bowling, Tennis, Fishing, Ping Pong, Golf, Baseball, t.v. Boxing) and 32 misc. games (Snake, Square, Diamond, Archery, shudu, Fire Man, Lawn Purge, Zuma, Boxes World, Bee Fighting, Tank, Shooting Balloons, Pro Crack, Fish War, aquamix, Duel Soccer, Maze Pac, Pets Crossing, Hammer, Rugged Hammer, Harry, Loop Legend, Fancy, Farm Keeper, Smart Bomber, Tiger Man, Golden Gate, Apex Gun, Pixie Princess Dandelion Of The Death Knell, Over Speed, Motor Storm, Highway Racing)

20 Wireless 60

At least this joke console contains controllers, unlike the Wireless Air 60.

This joke console contains 12 sports games (Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Bowling, Fishing, Darts, Tennis, Ping-Pong, Golf, Pool, Dancing, Sea World) and 48 misc. games (Auto X, Deep Storm, Dream Bubble, Fire Fighter, Hero Legend, Jewel Fever 2, Mr. Onion, The Lost World, Totally Jet, Pop Ball, Go-Kart, Sudoku, Lightning Plan, Find Pairs, Rapid Stream, Finger Dancing, Slot Machine, Texas Hold'em, Blackjack, Video Poker, Caribbean Stud, Free Craps, Jewel Master 2, Motor Rally 2, Speed Runner, Dragon, Treasure Hunt, Ice Climber, Cooking Chaos, Starry Night, Potion Commotion, Loco-Coconuts, Surf Adventure, Egg Collector, Find The Way, Go Smile, Magic Jelly, Pinball Fish, Bump Jump, Zippy Frogger, Crazy Addition, Defense Mission, Bomb Hero, Ballroom Bonanza, Milk Mania, Puzzle Pop, Pearls, Hide & Seek)

21 miniPolyStation 3

A crazy cuckoo cross between Polystation (whose name alone is a ripoff of PlayStation) and Gameboy (small display for relevant games)

22 The Guy Game

Yet another crazy nonsensical farce that ain't suitable for mature audiences let alone kids!

23 Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing

This "racing game" is so glitchy it was probably programmed by the Glitch Gremlin.

Although "You're Winner", this unfinished driving simulator is LOSER.

24 LJN Video Art

Worst video game console EVER!

The biggest reason this MS Paint ripoff sucks can be summed up in three little words: Laughing Joking Numbnuts

25 Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

An interactive romantic comedy: A plumber, a daddy's girl, chickens, crazed yuppies, evil bosses, shower scenes, race cards, panda, a nun. Get it? No, I don't get it! This crazy joke is so poorly thrown together it contains the weirdest title screen ever and no "real" animation after said title screen.

How is this crazy joke a video game, anyway!

The least playable "game" on the 3DO

26 Where's Waldo (NES)

Like a certain MS Paint ripoff brought to you by Laughing Joking Numbnuts, this "game" is blatantly inferior to its paper-based counterpart.

27 Bubsy 3D Remastered HD

Bubsy meets talking frogs and goes to a museum? And you thought the original Bubsy 3D was messed up...

28 Hyperscan

Scanning cards to make video games work? No wonder the hyper-SCAM is as phony as a three-dollar bill!

Ignoring homebrews, only 5 or 6 games were released for this joke console.

29 Kinect Game Boat

An inflatable raft that doubles as a video game accessory?

30 Tiger Wrist Games

Even the Odyssey (nothing but squares on a black background) is less primitive than Tiger wrist games.

64 bits, 32 bits, 16 bits, 8 bits, 4 bits, 2 bits, ONE bit, HALF-bit, QUARTER-bit, THE WRIST GAAAME!

31 Pokemon Black & Blue

One of the many resons I despise PETA - Frouze

Let's sing The PETA Song! (tune: The Pokémon Song)
People Eating Tasty Animals: Stupid trolls for animals since 1980
We don't care if our accusations make less than zero sense
We don't care if our image of Pokemon is as fictional as the evening news
We just can't stand anything that teaches people to abuse animals!
POKEMON! What a cruel farce of a game, cruelty to animals is insane
They beat each other black and blue
POKEMON! Gotta free 'em all... YEAH!

Bashing McDonald's Wednesday to Tuesday even if it's a slow news day
Hating SeaWorld July to June, we freak out when animals die too soon
Our goal is total animal liberation, whether our world's animals like it or not
We don't care if our president is the dumbest animal abuser of all!
POKEMON! What a cruel farce of a game, cruelty to animals is insane
They beat each other black and blue
POKEMON! Gotta free 'em all from PETA!

32 Highlander (Jaguar CD)

Worst Jaguar CD game EVER!

33 Dragon's Lair (NES)

Getting stuck on the first screen of the game is no fun.

34 NES Hands-Free Controller

A video game controller you would wear like a vest? Talk about crazy!

35 MiWi Xtra

This joke console is a ripoff of a joke console (Intec Interact) which is a ripoff of the Wii.

36 Fester's Quest

Gun upgrades that make your ammo go around enemies? Did the Addams Family program this game?

37 Shaq Fu

Shaquille O'Neal + Kung-Fu + Laughing Joking Numbnuts = Shaq-Fu

38 Xbox Kinect

At least this motion-sensing equipment contains a separate infrared sensor for precise motion sensing, unlike the wireless air 60 (which is a cross between this joke and the wireless 60).

39 3DO

Several 3DO models were produced but they had only ONE controller port and controllers can be daisy-chained together starting from the one plugged in to the system. What were they thinking!

How dare they call Super NES or Sega Genesis (or Atari 2600 or NES or Super Genintari, for that matter) "baby toys"!

40 Atari 5200 Controller

A bunch of telephone buttons tacked on to a video game controller?

The joystick doesn't center very well :(

41 Nintendo Powerglove

The Power Glove's biggest success came when Lucas used it to play Rad Racer in a movie called The Wizard. "I love the Power Glove, it's so bad" it's good... good for laughs!

Power Glove my gizzard!

42 Original Xbox Controller

This is one time when the original is as phony as a three-dollar bill.

43 Tiger R-Zone

This is just an abomination. It's like a crappy version of the Virtual Boy. As if the VB wasn't already a pile of junk! It combines the mundane gameplay of Tiger electronics (though it would make sense, they were both made by Tiger) and the eye strain and red-and-black graphics of the Virtual Boy. The VB was supposed to replicate virtual reality, and at least it did in some games. There is no way that Tiger came even close to trying to replicate that idea. It would seem like a crappy bootleg sold in flea markets and stuff, but no! It's a real, licensed console! The worst one in history, in my opinion.

This crazy excuse for a video game console is no better than the virtual boy (note the lowercase letters).

44 Roll 'n Rocker

A useless waste of perfectly good plastic brought to you by Laughing Joking Numbnuts...

45 Action 52

At least that infamous Atari game brought to you by the letters E and T (as well as three additional letters which stand for the unholy rainbow stamp of death) is ONE lousy video game, not 52 glitch-riddled joke games bundled together!

46 Zelda's Adventure

Although this game doesn't have goofy cutscenes like the ones in the other two Zelda CDi games, it does feature insane loading time.

47 Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero

Mortal Kombat + Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles + Laughing Joking Numbnuts = MK Mythologies

48 Air Wireless 60 Gaming System

A crazy cuckoo controller-less cross between the Wireless 60 and Kinect

49 Desert Bus

This snoozefest of a driving simulator is one of SIX joke games featured on Penn & Teller's Smoke & Mirrors.

50 Atari Jaguar CD

And you thought the sega 32x was a crazy tacky add-on...
