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 Mortal Kombat - Game Boy

Such a disgrace

5 Indy 500 - Game.com
6 Doom - Genesis 32X Doom - Genesis 32X

The music of this one sounds like a bunch of farts.

Someone should also put the 3DO and the Sega Saturn ports on this list.

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 Carmageddon - Nintendo 64
12 Rise of the Robots - Phillips CD-i
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 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

The PC Version has the insane requirments not the PS3. - LeetHaterz

15 A Bug's Life - Nintendo 64
16 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

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 Batman: Arkham Knight - PC

Completely broken. Updates didn't do much to fix it.

24 Street Fighter II - ZX Spectrum
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 Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Nintendo DS

Disgrace to the original

33 Earthworm Jim - Sega Master System

When people think of terrible platforms in general, this is one that should spring to mind. The story is predictable as sin. The characters are all one-dimensional, with no depth to them whatsoever. The graphics are the equivalent of waving your keys in front of your toddler’s face for an hour and a half, never shutting up or giving you a moment to breathe. The gun has THE most obnoxious sound you will ever hear in your entire life. The humor is loud and bouncy, because this game is so desperate to keep the kids’ attention that it can’t have any subtlety. I can see why this port walked out of this game.

34 Tomb Raider the Angel of Darkness - PC
35 Fallout 3 - PlayStation 3
36 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

37 Bioshock - iPhone
38 Jak and Daxter - Playstation Vita
39 Tomb Raider Underworld - Playstation 2
40 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!

41 Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition - PC
42 Battletoads - Commodore Amiga
43 Glover - PlayStation 1
44 Garfield Kart - Nintendo 3DS
45 Peter Jackson's King Kong - Nintendo DS
46 Pong: The Next Level - Game Boy Color
47 Mega Man X - iOS
48 Final Fantasy VI - iOS

Horrible Graphics and inferior port for a amazing game.

49 Jak and Daxter - Vita

Horrible frame - RichHomelessGreedyMan

50 Donkey Kong - Atari 2600

Donkey Kong looks like a massive gingerbread man throwing cookies!
