You're probably going to catch some flak for putting Monster Hunter on there, but it's your list! Other than that, not bad.

Warren Robinett is still alive... (You scared me there.)

Did Atari design Mutant Penguins? I always thought it was an Amiga port. Hmmm... No; it started off as a Jag exclusive, and was only ported to the PC in '96, after Atari was basically dead. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attack_of ... t_Penguins

Yeah, Wikipedia's not a great source, but I'm lazy.

Very fun list. Thanks for trudging thru the sludge for us.

I was happy to see NES Dragons Lair on the list. Reader scores also give it an F. I know we couldn't expect a laser disc arcade game from the NES, and the idea to chase the arcade game in concept was fine, but the execution was horrid.

Is Alex Kidd that bad? I am going to have to play it again now and see. Darn.

Great list but a few things


1-Knowing your severe hatred for Bubsy I can't believe you didn't put any of those games in the top 5 lol

2-You seriously missed out on a game that should absolutely be on the list Street Fighter 2020 for the NES

I was a little afraid this would just be your Atari Jaguar page, sans Wolfenstien 3D and Tempest 2000. ;)

You're probably referring to Raid 2020. Street Fighter: 2010 for the NES is pretty good.

NES Action 52 should be #1. That scam originally retailed for $200.

Wii Music should have made this list. Nonetheless a fun and entertaining read!

Strange choice for the top spot. There is something terrible in how Worms Forts manages to turn one of the most simple and inviting party games ever into a bloated, confusing slog, but is it really worse than Plumbers Don't Wear Ties? Is it worse than Bubsy 3D, which started with a bad 2D series and managed to make it look downright pleasant in comparison? Forts at least has a basic level of polish and competence that on its own should set it above games like Superman 64 and Dark Castle.
