Airport Tycoon 2[edit]

From archive:

Airport Tycoon 2 (2002, PC) scores 0% at Rotten Tomatoes, has an average rating of 3.3/10 on that site, and is rated a rare two stars on Amazon.com. User:gmeric13@aol.com

I would add it and even add my own opinion if the game installed correctly on my computer, but find another terrible review instead of amazon due to 2/5 equaling 4/10 or mediocre.guitarhero777777 22:44, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Gamerankings 32% average
IGN review 2,5
Definitely one for this list. JackSparrow Ninja 18:17, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Airport Tycoon 2 looks like just one of many lousy games having the word Tycoon in their titles (no doubt inspired by RR Tycoon, Rollercoaster Tycoon, etc). I don't think there's anything special about this game that makes it worse then any other low budget Tycoon game. Gamerankings lists 8 Tycoon games with averages below 40% and 19 with averages below 50%. Also the Gamerankings average of 31.9% and the Rotten Tomatoes average rating of 3.3/10 put this game into the mediocre games category as described on the archive page.

American Gladiators (video game)[edit]

A game that based on the TV show which was given one of the lowest score on the August 1003 issue of the Super Play magazine, lower than 20 out of 100. Like all Gametek games, as the magazine describe it as nothing but just tapping repetitively on the shoulder buttons. Willirennen 10.52, 14 December 2006

Ambulance Driver[edit]

A terrible Crazy Taxi clone on the PC. It recieved a 1.4/10 on Gamespot.com, and users of Gamerankings.com gave it a 29%/100.Fableheroesguild 18:20, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Anubis II[edit]

An awful Wii port of a two year old PS2 game with tacked on waggle controls that usually don't work causing your character to stand there and take a beating from the games unimaginative enemies.

The game has a plot, but it makes no mention of the story whatsoever in the actual game. The game consists of one music track, an annoying MIDI melody that doesn't fit with the game at all. The graphics are comparable to that of an N64 game, and even that's pushing it.

A more indepth look can be seen at IGN's review [2], which gave the game a 2.0/10. There's also the Gamespot review [3], where the game recieved a 1.5/10. It currently has a review average of 19/100 on Metacritic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.41.247.121 (talk) 20:09, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

B[edit]

Batman Forever (Video game)[edit]

[4]

Bad Day L.A.[edit]

A buggy, humourless, mis-step of a game which was huge flop on release. The reviews were utterly scathing and it caused friction between McGee and the website Something Awful. Not that I mind, since it all proved that he was an overrated developer who relied on one game, American McGee's Alice, for credibility.

And yes, I'm fully aware that there's McGee fanatics out there who will defend the awful representation of satire on display here. It doesn't matter. It was still mauled and flopped. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kimdealslover (talkcontribs) 14:31, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Burning Desire[edit]

(1982, Atari 2600) is a pornographic video game with crude graphics and boring, simplistic gameplay. It was considered to have one of the worst premises ever and the game had an explicit ending scene after each level.

Don't know how that came on the list, since it wasn't discussed or referenced. Let's discuss. JackSparrow Ninja 19:25, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

C[edit]

Captain Novolin[edit]

An odd game designed to teach children about diabetes.

[5]

[6]

[7]

GameRankings [8] mentions a site that game a 2.5/5 (50%) score to this game, but unluckily the review is no longer available. Let's see...other than that there's a bunch of negative Gamefaqs reviews [9], Abysmal player ratings at Gamespot[10]... well I guess it's an "unusual" game at most, which is rendered extremely hard by Captain's Novolin inability to attack...and the premise of the game is somewhat controversial ( this particular reviewer with diabetes [11] didn't particularly like the idea behind it). Nope, that's not a great game in my book. Further discussion? EpiVictor 00:32, 29 June 2006 (UTC) on seanbaby's list of the most horrible games and i'm sure some other ones as well. --Philo 04:09, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

It's terrible, add it. guitarhero777777 22:52, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

A hero whose weakness is diabetes? There's no way this can't be added. Savager 18:51, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

I don't think this is a bad game. Misguided, perhaps, but as a side-scroller it's just generic, not terrible. This is one reason why I'm trepadatious about citing Seanbaby as a source. He's a funny guy, but he's writing for comedy first, and makes it quite clear that his process of evaulating games is not making any attempt to be truly scientific or objective. The motivations behind calling Captain Novalin the worst game ever seem to lean closer to "lol game about diabetes wtf" than "this game is truly atrocious, and as one of the 20 worst games ever, it is worse than thousands upon thousands of other games". See the comment above for a good example of this reaction. Sorry if I come across as a humorless nerd in saying this, but he's no Roger Ebert. --70.108.116.231 04:28, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes, but if you looked at the other reviews, Seanbaby isn't the only one who has deemed this game bad. Questionable (in any sense of the word) content of the game along with the poor gameplay aspects is a good enough reason to add it - games like Custer's Revenge and Ethnic Cleansing have their poor gameplay magnified by the questionable theme of the game. Granted this isn't as offensive (though people still took offense, see above) but I think it warrants an add. My earlier comment merely reflected the summarised opinion of the game.

I'm in favour of including this. Savager 21:42, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

I completely second that. JackSparrow Ninja 22:59, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
  • I’m on the fence, on account of it not having what i would class as reliable sources (Gamespot, IGN ect), but leaning towards including it. El cid the hero 21:14, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Count Duckula 2 (ZX Spectrum)[edit]

This game received the lowest score by far in Your Sinclair magazine, receiving just 9% in December 1992 [16] I would find other review sources for it, but the publishers Alternative didn't send review copies to any magazine - YS had to buy it themselves months after it was originally released (hence the 'Ones That Got Away' tag on the review) - so they must have known it was pretty bad. Sorry I couldn't find a HTML/plain text source for the review; this is a magazine scan. --Stevefarrell 12:15, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

This is going to be a hard one to decide as it's very old and obscure. Perhaps we could do a "worst games by system" layout for the article and have this as one for the ZX Spectrum? Savager 21:42, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

I'll see your 9% and give you a 3% for the CPC version of the game, as rewarded by Amstrad Action: http://www.cpcgamereviews.com/c/index8.html —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 212.56.117.132 (talkcontribs) .

Because I didn't read the talk page first, I've already gone and added it. Not necessarily because of the poor review scores, but because of it being voted the worst game ever by YS readers. Marasmusine 08:54, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

D[edit]

Daikatana[edit]

Okay, you probably don't need to hear anything more about this game. But I'm not sure if it qualifies; sure, it was bad, but was it really bad enough to warrant inclusion on this list? Does its infamy justify its appearance, or am I still blinded by the fact that John Romero wants to establish a female-canine relationship with me? PolarisSLBM 05:50, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

Daryl F. Gates Police Quest: SWAT[edit]

Dino Master[edit]

Didn't receive much attention, but the bit of attention it did receive was largely negative. The major game sites panned the game (Gamespot: 2.4, IGN: 2.5), and most of the Gamespot forum community that actually played it regarded it as the worst (or at least among the worst) DS game to date. To top it off, it received a 27% at Game Rankings. (By the way, don't use the Nintendo Power review to counter my nomination). The Legend of Miyamoto 16:24, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

I don't think Nintendo Power has ever given a bad review, so I would definitely discount them and the other reviews are worthy of adding the game in. guitarhero777777 17:57, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

Donkey Kong (Intellivision Version)[edit]

A terrible port of the arcade classic. Ranked 9th on GameSpy's 10 most shameful games of all time. [17] [18] Poor graphics, bad sound, bad controls, bad jumping, bad collision detection for the hammer, and only two of the levels from arcade version.

More substance and more reviews and you have a game warranting inclusion. guitarhero777777 22:53, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Don't Buy This[edit]

It was advertised as being the 5 worst games ever.[19] I think that's good enough for inclusion even without all of the poor reviews (there are a few 'good' reviews, but you can tell they're just messing around). I mean, come on, how can this not be included really? --SeizureDog 04:04, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Clear enough alright. Added. JackSparrow Ninja 04:15, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

E[edit]

ECW Hardcore Revolution[edit]

This is by far the worst wrestling game ever made. Gamespy gave it 2 out of 10, and IGN gave it a 4 out of 10, and for good reason. Acclaim put little to effort in this title, it feels too much like WWF Attitude, except with the ECW logo on it. This game has also failed to live up to its name, as in its not hardcore at all.


Also consider ECW Anarchy Rulz, a near identical game. BuyAMountain 03:24, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

ECW Anarchy Rulz is an embarrasment of a game- no sound, terrible graphics, felt it was thrown together in a few minutes (Dreamcast version, I'm talking about). Absolute garbage. Famous Mortimer 08:37, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

I think this is good to add. Savager 21:42, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

G[edit]

Gods And Generals[edit]

This game received Gamespot's second-lowest possible score ever (see http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/godsgenerals/review.html ), 1.2. It looks god-awful, especially for a game released in 2003. It's other reviews are not quite as harsh, but still extremely negative. At the very least, it may be the worst first person shooter ever? PolarisSLBM 05:50, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

Gravity Games Bike: Street, Dirt, Vert[edit]

[23]

[24]

I would add it, plus add the fact that Official PlayStation Magazine gave this a .5 out of 5. guitarhero777777 22:41, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

International Rugby Challenge (Amiga)[edit]

see here [25] the review in british game magazine amiga power, it was so bad, because it basically didn't work at all, and therefore shameful to be released, it got 2% (and about 10% in average in the british game press, see also the page for Amiga Power Romanista 14:33, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, looks like this one warrants an inclusion. Apparently half of its score is derived from "comedy value". Isopropyl 12:03, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

More reviews. I still say include it, though. guitarhero777777 22:54, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

According to this site [26] , the game got 56% in Amiga Joker (a German magazine) and 65% in CU Amiga. For the way those magazines marked games (ie awarding them marks just for existing and having a box, and giving games high marks because the PR people asked nicely), that's also pretty low. I don't know about The One or Amiga Action or any of those though. Amiga Action probably gave it 95%, the same mark they gave everything. --Stevefarrell 23:35, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

J[edit]

J-Space For Windows[edit]

This game received a bad rating (4% from PC Format), and is now in oblivion due to obscurity. The only reference I have for this game existing is a paperback "hint book" that lists this game. This obviously broke some record, since it was the lowest rating at the time.

I don't have the paperback with me, and it may take some time to retrieve. However, I'm certain this qualifies as a valid nomination once we are able to determine why it is bad. --Sigma 7 02:39, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

K[edit]

L[edit]

Lair (2007, PlayStation 3)[edit]

The game was seriously humilliated during a review on IGN, which gave it a 4.9. Its average in GameRankings is very low too. 200.71.186.241 06:26, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Lunar: Dragon Song (2005 - Nintendo DS)[edit]

A $15 bargain at EB Games, this game isn't worth even that much. Your HP lowers when you run (ever head of stamina?). You can't choose which target to attack in battle. You can't gain experience and items at the same time (huh?). Lucia is worthless as a support character even at higher levels (At level 10 she still can't kill any enemy in one shot!). Your main character attacks with his sandals and acrobatics. Story takes an excrutiating amount of time to actually start. Side-missions ("Jobs") are ludicrousely long for nothing (obtaining items through hours of fighting while forfeiting any possible experience points, mostly). You can't hit flying ennemies before killing the one on the ground below it (until you get ranged attacks which I still haven't gotten after 3 hours of gameplay). Armors and weapons are extremely high-priced. As for visuals, a lot of the menu "links" are low-quality images that grow and shrink through a very bad stretch algorythm. The music isn't that bad, but could be a lot better. There is a token use of the mic, which is you can escape a battle by blowing on it like an idiot (yes, that's the only thing the mic does). Regular battles are mostly done by choosing "Auto Battle" and holding the right shoulder button. In conclusion? This game is about as entertaining as a retarted redneck removing boogers from his sister's (and/or wife's) nose. Sometimes, unique can be bad. ESLachance 08:03, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Ok, the main article says it wasn't received very positively, but the review scores mentioned there are in the "mediocre-average" or even "upper mediocre" range of 60-68%, quite not "worst ever" material. EpiVictor 14:14, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
True enough, but I realized yesterday that I knew 2 people that bought the game and never even got to the point where I am since they hated the aformentionned problems so much. A lot of user reviews are negative, and the volume of GameInformer shipped in December 2005 (it was probably the January 2006 issue, knowing how magazines work) rates it 8th in the top 10 worst games of 2005. Most of the "good" reviews either tells you to ignore it's shortcomings and force yourself to enjoy it, completely sidestep the issue and boasts that "this is a lunar game, it has to be good" or say something in the lines of "it's the first RPG on the DS, give them a break". No one actually *loves* this game, even hardcore Lunar fans (and sometimes, especially them!). ESLachance 16:50, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
Nothing I have read qualifies this as worst ever. This just sounds like ramblings of an angry fan and the reviews I have read were generally mediocre. guitarhero777777 03:40, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
You come off as a smug, pretentious asshole. --70.108.92.221 19:04, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
You make it sound like that's a bad thing. What I was saying was no to the inclusion as reviews aren't terrible. Next, time you want to attack me, do it on my talk page, not in this public forum. guitarhero777777 19:58, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

M[edit]

Mad Dog McCree 1&2[edit]

Circa 2001 & 2003. FMV games. Acting is mind-blowingly bad, dialogue is cheezy, and continuity errors abound (i.e., Indians who shoot guns at one cowboy, who then falls on the ground, full of arrows). Note: Worst rated games in the US edition of PC gamer with 8% and 4%, respectively. No URL's available, probably because no one wants to remember this terrible game! P.H. - Kyoukan, UASC 01:31, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

It's no worse than your average FMV game, really. Also, PC gamer rated the DOS versions of these games in the 70's when they came out.

Mortal Kombat: Special Forces[edit]

Made in 2000 this game is considered the worst Mortal Kombat game ever. It has extremely chuggy graphics and the textures are pretty horrible.

It recieved a "2.1" on Gamespot

A "3" on IGN

A "1.5" on Cheat Code Central

A "1.5" in Electronic Gaming Monthly

A "1.5" in Official PlayStation Magazine

I do believe it deserves to go on the list.

I do agree that this deserves to go on the list, as I have heard nothing but horrible things about this game. guitarhero777777 03:31, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Nickelodeon Party Blast[edit]

I don't know a lot about this game (designed for the Xbox and PC), but I do know that it scores 19 at Metacritic, and that Gamespot gave it a 1.1 (abysmal); they said something like, "Letting a kid play this might teach them to hate video games, which I sure don't want to do."

Gamespot never gave it a rating. the 1.1 was by IGN, but reading the other reviews, we should add it in. guitarhero777777 04:35, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

It's been 3 months and no one else bothers to review it. That is also a point to take into consideration IMO. JackSparrow Ninja 09:21, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
Yes, in such cases, you don't add it. As much as I agree with that AMIB is being too hasty in removing stuff (which apparently is something he often does), there is still policy to consider. As is often said, things should be written here based on varifability, not truth. If only one notible review is written about the game, then the game itself isn't noteworthy enough to be on the list in the first place. ♫ Melodia Chaconne ♫ 12:47, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Plumbers Don't Wear Ties[edit]

I remember reading PC Zone years ago about 1998 or 1999 that in a top 100 worst games feature that this came out as the worst. I never played it myself but on their brief review it appears dreadful and seems to be more of a 3DO game as opposed to a PC Game. Basically comprised of watching still photos whilst a badly acted story played out.

P.Y.S.T. (PC)[edit]

Apart from its amusing title, this was considered a poor parody of the Myst series with no gameplay and a bad sense of humour. The entire game is made up of a few altered Myst screenshots. They were going to make a sequel, Driven: The Sequel to PYST, but the company went out of business due to their poor games and their respective sales.

It's an old and obscure game, I can't find any other reviews for it. I highly doubt anyone would have given it a decent review though. Savager 17:18, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Actually, I think it was reviewed in some magazine in Finland (probably Tietokone; I can't find it from Pelit archive. Says something if it gets reviewed by a glossy-paper computer/multey-meedia magazine but not a real game mag. =).

Robocop (Xbox, PC 2003): A first person shooter game developed by Titus Software. It had very poor controls and terrible graphics. Fans of the original film were very disappointed due to the lack of references to the original films and Robocop himself having terrible one liners that he never was known to say when he would take out an enemy, such as "Oh yeah" and "bullseye!". The game received an extremely low score of 2.2 on gamespot.com thus pushing the film to game world to new lows. Add the game, but site more sources. guitarhero777777 22:34, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots[edit]

Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots (video game): "Ask some friends to name the worst games of all time, and you'll probably hear the same titles: Superman for the N64, E.T. for the Atari 2600, Night Trap for the Sega CD. But these aren't really the worst games ever made, they're just the most notoriously bad. The worst games tend to come and go relatively unnoticed, insulting just the few poor saps that bought them before being forgotten entirely. Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots for the Game Boy Advance is a game so bad that it'll be hard to forget about it."IGN review How bad is it? Superman's score is over twice what they gave this.

SimEarth[edit]

I don't know if anybody else played this game, but from what I remember it was pretty much a more developed verson of "The game of life", but with different colored squares that did different things and all of that. AKA it sucked.

IIRC, it a) didn't sell badly and b) helped pave the way for SimCity and The Sims. --Dandelions 15:19, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
Eh... SimCity was the first game on the series. I don't know what SimEarth paved way for, but SimCity paved the way for everything else they did. After SimCity, it didn't matter to Maxis what they made, people would buy it anyway =) --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 23:23, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Star Fox (Atari 2600)[edit]

Considered by many as one of the worst Atari 2600 games of all time due to its awful controls and programming.

I didn't even know there was such a game. I thought you made a mistake for the SNES version. I say yes to adding this, but add more sources and make it clear this isnt Nintendo.guitarhero777777 03:15, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Star Wars: Yoda Stories[edit]

The Gameboy Color version in particular has been blasted: Gamespot gave it a 1.8 out of ten and calls it "possibly the worst Star Wars game ever produced"[34]. IGN gave it a 2/10 and says "Yoda Stories is one of the technically lamest and structurally annoying Game Boy games ever developed."[35] Awful controls, lacking graphics and horrid animation, and boring, repetitive gameplay. Gamerankings gives it 35% and the only reason it's that high is a site that's apparently defunct gave it a 6/10. Tiakalla 04:01, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Sword of Sodan[edit]

Released by EA for the Sega Genesis. I can't seem to find much worthwhile information about this game - like many games in the early 90s, it just sorta vanished into obscurity - but - and I usually refrain from such hyperbolic statements - anyone who has played this game will agree that it's one of the absolute worst pieces of shit ever created. Ever conceived. It features gratutious, cheesy blood, tacky and irritating voice samples, graphics that mistake digitization with quality, and invisible pits. Invisible. Pits. The only facet of a classically bad game that this game lacks is that it was not based on a licensed property. --70.108.116.231 04:19, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, but I can't agree to putting this in without sources. It just seems you are angry for playing this game and basically putting it in would be OR. guitarhero777777 15:22, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

you obviously haven't played the game. It's a unique game that makes subjective monsters of us all. Also, if you're going to be the self-appointed dictator of this section, it'd help if you learned how to use nested comments. --70.108.92.221 19:01, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

I don't think this is one of the worst games ever, but it maybe it could go on List of controversial games as an early example of "gratutious, cheesy blood" Supermagnetic 13:46, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Survivor (PC)[edit]

Game Revolution had to change their review system for this game. They didn't want to give it an 'F' because they thought that was too high. They gave it their first and only 'F-'. The review for it is here; they explain it better (and much more humourously) than I could:-

Most of the reviews from other websites are pretty low too:-

Takeshi no Chousenjou[edit]

Although not many people will know of this as it was never sold outside Japan, I once read in a magazine that it was voted as one of the worst game to be sold in the Japanese market and it even invented a subgenre there that is known as **** game. Also it was actually one of the four game by actor Takeshi Kitano, who was said to despise videogames, I would like to add more surce if I can find it. Willirennen 10.52, 14 December 2006

Ultimate Duck Hunting[edit]

Ultimate Duck Hunting (2006, PC) is a duck hunting game developed by Mid Carolina media for the PC. The goal of the game is to shoot ducks and then collect them with hunting dogs, a concept similar to that of the classic NES game, Duck Hunt. Not only is the game so bad only 3 media outlets cared to review it, IGN.com and Gamespot didn't even bother, but the fact it lead to the suicide of the GameTrailers reviewer, pretty much says enough about why the game is on the list.

Virtual Hydlide[edit]

I am surprised nobody nominated this title for the sega saturn. The game is probably so bad nobody wanted to play it. It has a framerate dropped down to 5 fps and most enemies had like 3 frames of animation. Dozens of glitches were included such as seeing bats behind walls, it was impossible to turn around without seeing the main character switch to third person to first person and while moving, objects changed to different sizes. It is considered an rpg, but it has nog villages, or text, or shop or even living creatures to conversate with. It doensnt have any experience indicators, instead of that everything is arranged through you score where you can buy items with. The rest of the game is a complete dud. The "map" looks like it was made on computer CGA graphics. It had 2 harder difficulty settings which didn't affect anything but destination points on the map. It has several "dungeons" which make you want to put down your controller immediately. For example, the volcano is like crazy, an enormous maze that has you go walking for ages while it is scattered with lava drops. You can only equip one item at a time and you need to wear the protective anti-lava hurting medallion so this option throughout the game is pretty lame. A detection spell can be casted which marks all the chests on the map, but the game is trying to fool you, containing several useless items like inferior pairs of armour you already have. While the chests are surrounded by lava, it is impossible to take its contents out without getting hurt. How can this possiblly not be one of the worst games. It killed the whole Hydlide series which was already as horrible as it can be.

Apparently, a poor 3DO clone of Revolution X, which was a clamorous flop itself

War Soldiers (PC)[edit]

An incredibly bad German FPS, set in the time of the Vietnam war, with horrible graphics, gameplay, A.I. and sound. Received in nowhere more than 5 out of 100 points.

Where's Waldo? (NES)[edit]

Videogame version of the popular books, only with terrible graphics making it very hard to find him, immensely boring gameplay, only eight levels and no music.

Another Super Famicom game that was never sold outside Japan for being crap well I was tempted by the fancy box art then, awarded 20 out of 100 by Super Play magazine in 1992. Willirennen 10.52, 14 December 2006
