Top Ten Worst Video Game Ports

LongLiveTheMetricSystem

The Top Ten

1 Pac-Man - Atari 2600 Pac-Man - Atari 2600
2 Call of Duty: Black Ops III - PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Call of Duty: Black Ops III - PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

75% of the game has been cut on the PS3 and 360 versions of this game. - LongLiveTheMetricSystem

3 Sonic the Hedgehog - Gameboy Advance

A complete butchering of the first game. With bad screen crunch issues, a jittery framerate, HORRIBLE collision detection and an abundance of glitches (and not even the fun ones like in Sonic 06).
Any other version of Sonic the Hedgehog is better than this sorry excuse for a game. - SuperSonic17

4 Indy 500 - Game.com
5 Mortal Kombat - Game Boy
6 Doom - Genesis 32X Doom - Genesis 32X
7 Pit Fighter - Super Nintendo Pit Fighter - Super Nintendo
8 Myst - Nintendo DS
9 Far Cry Vengeance - Nintendo Wii
10 Resident Evil 4 - PC Version 1.0 Resident Evil 4 - PC Version 1.0

Lack of mouse support kills it. - LongLiveTheMetricSystem

The Contenders

11 Rise of the Robots - Phillips CD-i
12 Carmageddon - Nintendo 64
13 Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter - PlayStation 2 and Xbox Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter - PlayStation 2 and Xbox

This is does not play like a Ghost Recon game. - LongLiveTheMetricSystem

14 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - PlayStation 3 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - PlayStation 3

It was broken at launch, thank god I did not get this game when it came out because I only had access to the PS3 version at the time. - LongLiveTheMetricSystem

15 Grand Theft Auto IV - PlayStation 3 Grand Theft Auto IV - PlayStation 3

That's the version I played and had no trouble with it. - Gehenna

16 A Bug's Life - Nintendo 64
17 Shadow Man - PlayStation 1
18 Need for Speed Carbon - PlayStation 2 Need for Speed Carbon - PlayStation 2
19 Bayonetta - PlayStation 3 Bayonetta - PlayStation 3
20 Celebrity Deathmatch - PlayStation
21 WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 - Nintendo Wii
22 Sonic 3D Blast - Sega Genesis
23 Street Fighter II - ZX Spectrum
24 Batman: Arkham Knight - PC
25 Tony Hawks Proskater 3 - PlayStation 1 and Nintendo 64
26 Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop - Nintendo Wii
27 Street Fighter Alpha 3 - PlayStation 1
28 Battletoads in Battlemaniacs - Sega Master System
29 Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 - PlayStation 3
30 Hyrule Warriors - Original Nintendo 3DS

It Was Horrible On The Original 3DS, but Not On The New 3DS - VideoGamefan5

31 Tales of Phantasia - iOS
32 Tomb Raider the Angel of Darkness - PC
33 Fallout 3 - PlayStation 3
34 Borderlands 2 - Playstation Vita

Meh, It Was A Downgrade From The Console Verisons, But It Was Still Not Bad, Not At All To Me - VideoGamefan5

35 Bioshock - iPhone
36 Jak and Daxter - Playstation Vita
37 Tomb Raider Underworld - Playstation 2
38 The Lord of the Rings: Conquest - Nintendo DS

A class is removed, most of the skills are removed, most of the maps are removed, and if memory serves correctly, the framerate is about 10 fps. I know things have to be cut for ports on handheld systems, but that's ridiculous!

39 Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition - PC
40 Battletoads - Commodore Amiga
41 Glover - PlayStation 1
42 Garfield Kart - Nintendo 3DS
43 Peter Jackson's King Kong - Nintendo DS
44 Pong: The Next Level - Game Boy Color
45 Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Nintendo DS
46 Mega Man X - iOS

Horrible controls, slideshow framerate, and graphics barely even better than the SNES version? You’d be better off just emulating that version on your iphone. - Zach808
