The Newcomers

? Bubsy 3D
? Super Pitfall

There's a difference between a game with puzzle-solving aspects and a game that's downright cryptic, and Super Pitfall is part of the latter category. The world of Super Pitfall is gigantic, and everything that's needed to beat the game is hidden at all times, either it's invisible or unreachable without warps, which are also convoluted. Glitches are all over the place, gold is there for decoration (while in other versions it can be used to purchase items), enemies are nearly impossible to deal with, and Harry dies in one-hit. And just to add further misery, after the princess is rescued the game requires the player to go through a complex route to warp back to the beginning of the game, and fall off a specific ledge on the first screen to win. I understand that it's technically more playable, but when a game is so bad that it's a requires internet usage to get through the entire thing (and this game was released back when internet didn't exist) and has other terrible mechanics along ...more - nerffan8000

The Contenders

11 Tagin' Dragon
12 Wally Bear and the No! Gang
13 Swordquest

It's okay, but you'd have much more purpose playing it during the contest.

14 Action 52
15 Superman 64

Flying through rings? That would be like if you made a batman game where all be did was play hopscotch. ~AVGN

16 Battletoads

This is actually one of the best games, but it's also one of the most frustrating. So unless you refer "worst" as in "hard", then this game has no reason to be on here.

This game, is actually pretty good, just extremely hard.

Yeah, it may be frustrating and possibly unplayable with 2 players, but calling it bad, let alone one of the worst the AVGN has reviewed is stretching it. However, if he also covered the Battletoads game for Amiga then I'd understand it's inclusion. - nerffan8000

I thought he liked this game. - Aragorn98

This is actually an awesome game, I think I like Swordquest as well.
