Worst 30 games of all time

Postby Sly Boots » Fri Oct 16, 2015 10:27 am

Guardian's done a two-parter on the 30 worst video games of all time, worth a quick read:

Part one:

Part two:

Any they've left off?

Some of the games on the list appear to be there because they were disappointments or because they are perceived as bad games rather than being bad games.

EDIT: What on earth is Knack doing on there?

EDIT 2: OK part two of the list is just a mess. It's full of average games which don't quite live up to their sequels rather than objectively bad games.

What the fuck? Resistance 2 is one of the most fun shooters of last gen, Resistance 1 I could almost see. Just about none of them deserve to be there except superman 64. Even Clusters revenge, if you take out the rapeyness, is better than many other 2600 games.

Maybe plumbers don't wear ties. Even the guy game isn't the worst of its kind.

Trying to think what is the worst game I've ever played, PC games anyway. I've not played any of the ones listed in the article.

I think it would have to be Forsaken Gods, the expandalone to Gothic 3. It was farmed out to some unknown dev based in India, and it was without doubt just a total abortion of a game. Horrible quests, horrible locations, literally the worst voice acting I've ever experienced in a game, bugs aplenty. Just so bad.

I also ended up buying Sniper Ghost Warrior on my dad's recommendation, which proved to be pretty darn shitty in almost every respect while still having some semblence of playability (ie it wasn't fundamentally broken).

How about you other peeps?

I've been trying to think of really bad games I've played since reading the article and sort of struggling. I tend to like some games that people consider 'bad' and avoid the really terrible ones.

The closest I can come up with is the original KOTOR which isn't really a bad game, but didn't allow me to complete it due to my character choices which is pretty terrible design and coloured my whole experience of the title.

Can't really remember any total stinkers or maybe I've just blanked them out. Although in recent memory Hydrophobia was pretty stinky.

Man if Kotor is the worst game you've played you've had a good life!

Try Nerves Of Steel. Found that in dixons "it looks like doom, get me that da!". I tried to like it and forced myself to play it for longer than is healthy.

They weren't wrong when they mentioned the Ocean Software movie tie-in games from the 8-bit 80s. Ocean ran movie tie-ins for just about every major film of the time, and without exception they were terrible.

I had a very brief stint working at a game shop shortly after leaving college, and used to categorically tell people not to buy the latest game-of-the-film as we had a no-returns policy and they would be utter shit, but no, little Johnny had to have it, so they would be back the next day claiming "It doesn't load" only to be crestfallen as I loaded it in-store and handed it back to them.

Worst one in recent memory is definitely A:CM

Ah, come on.

Hatred was hilarious in it's absurd angst.
Duke Nukem Forever, while problematic, was still pretty fun for an old, old school shooter.
Resistance 2 was probably the best in the series. And I liked that series quite a bit!
Perfect Dark Zero? Get the fuck outta here. :lol:

The rest of those games that I've actually played? Yeah, quite rubbish. That said, the whole list seems way hyperbolic.

Having a hard time coming up with any objectively bad games that I've played. Probably some esoteric nightmare on the Amastrad CPC? :-k

Also, Sly is my brother in suffering, for I too ended up with a copy of that dire, dire Gothic 3 expansion. I can't even remember when or why I bought it, only the horror as I tried to play it.

I actually played it to the end, to this day I have no idea how or why...

This should really be "games that don't live up the the hype". DNF was nowhere near as bad as that dungeon keeper mobile game, for example.
