The Worst Games You've Ever Played.

Idea stolen from Chyron8472's topic.

What is/are the worst game(s) you've played ever? I don't mean games that would otherwise be good if not for a few things wrong with them. I mean games that have no redeemable value and are complete FAIL.


I have a couple to start off with.

Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde (NES)

This game is the worst amount of retarded bull I've ever seen. I managed to make it six levels, before I got sick of the horrible level design and the fact the levels repeat. Everything is out to kill you when you're Dr. Jeykll, and there is no way to avoid attacks. You have to have the quickest reflexes and be the best friggin gamer in gaming history to beat this. You need nerves of steel. If you get hurt enough, you turn into Mr. Hyde, and go into a dark world sort of stage. The problem is you walk backwards and if you move too far or move Mr. Hyde yourself, you die. Lightning strikes you, for no reason. There's only one boss that I've seen, a fat opera singer who sprays musical notes at you. Just don't play it. Ever. Don't.

I've searched for the name of this game everywhere, and I found it today for the first time in order to post about it in this topic. This game is a Japanese RPG, and while it's got a great interface and not terrible graphics, the game is friggin horrible! It hates all mankind and wants to glue you to the TV in frustration until your eyeballs bleed out! It's the most difficult RPG I've ever played! You can't get anywhere without dying! I played this as a little kid, and constantly tried to beat it, and I couldn't. It refused to be played past the first town. Now in it's defense, I haven't played it for years, and a lot of people seem to like it. I might give it a try again, but I know that my memories of this game, are that it is a bucket of balls. I should probably be happy to own it, as it seems to be somewhat rare.


Now you don't have to post box art shots and screenshots and stuff. I just did that to show the games off. Just post your worst gaming experiences ever. Superman 64 bad. :)

  • I have actually played "Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing"

    It was truly a tour de force
  • It's a toss-up between Fighting Force 2 and Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. (Funny that they both have "force" in the name)

    Unplayable wrecks. That's really all I can say about them. Hideous, depressing failures.

    I've played even worse games, but I'm sticking to titles that were developed by established teams. If I went into indie games, this post would never end.

    We had a BBC Micro back in the day, there was no shortage of poo games for it, but there were a couple of diamonds
  • the Iron Man videogame for the movie. never before had I played a third person game with First Person Shooter controls, and it didn't control well

    Not the worst game I've ever played, but it's pretty awful. I got it for PC and I got immediately sucked in. Interesting story, fantastic graphics, amazing combat music etc etc.

    But while on the surface it appears to be a fantastic game, it gets boring super quickly. The dungeons look the same and the levelling system is retarted. You don't level up, but your stats increase. But that's fine.

    The worst thing is the difficulty. You can be levelling up for ages in boring areas for hours, only to get up to a level where the enemies can kill you in one hit. If you google Nest of Eagles on gamefaqs, theres over 2 pages of help topics on it. You're able to one hit kill the enemies leading up to the fight, then you have to kill two super powerful enemies with 5000 health, the ability to one hit kill you AND you have to deal with 9 groups of normal enemies AND they get reinforced each turn.

    It probably deserves a 6.5/10, but it's worse because on the outside it looks so sweet.
  • I've luckily managed to avoid horrible games throughout my lifetime, so mine are small time to some of the horrors out there but they are still pretty damn bad.

    My younger cousin had a game called "Horsez" for the PC that I helped her out on a LOT, because they felt the need to put horribly glitchy and confusing quests, most without maps, in a kid's game. (some involved trying to find seriously miniscule objects in a big wide area with shoddy camera controls that were already camouflaged within the setting to begin with). The rest of the game is an incredibly dumb "*giggle* *giggle* teenagers" story and doing repetitive "horse care" crap five million times. I let her install it on to my computer for her to play and I was familiar with the "Dogz" and "Catz" series from when I was a kid, so I assumed it would be the same: take care of cute horses, only more realistically as the screens implied. Boy howdy, was I wrong.

    Also The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning. The whole trilogy is terrible enough but jesus christ the first game is quite literally nothing but going in a completely straight line of super walled-in areas and button mashing the same hordes of enemies to death over and over again. EDIT: Oh and super long and dull tutorial sessions in one place that you must do FOUR TIMES.

    Also I've never played it, but the AVG video reviewing a game called "Plumbers Don't Wear Ties" is hilarious and is pretty much the worst game I have ever seen.
  • I'm waiting to somebody to say "Mario is Missing" or "Mario's Time Machine".

    Of course, I'm probably just showing my age

    Mario is missing… wasn’t it a SNES geographic quizz, like some organised plot by geography teachers, hiding behind Mario’s name ?

    Unsurprisingly, MK was always referred to as "Special Farces" in the test lab.
