Most of the bad games I've seen listed here are licensed releases... would be interesting to see really bad one-off/original games.


This really ups the ante - all of my next selections were sports games that have an athlete's name on them, but no other redeeming quality...

It does make it a LOT harder... i just spent a few minutes trying to think of one Ive played and Dream Trigger 3DS was the first non-licensed game... might be worse than Heavy Nova, but Heavy Nova let me down with an interesting premise

I have owned several bad games but most are long gone. One that comes to mind is JAWS for NES. It at least had an ending but it is not much fun to play a game that can be beaten in 10 minutes.

I owned that game for 2 whole days.

Phix the Adventurer, PS1, 2003 - This budget title looks more like something from 1995 than 2003. It also controls badly, & has a really bad camera. Cool concept tho, & I enjoyed it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEpnnIbmiGI

E.T. The Extra-Terrestial, Atari 260, 1982 - Poor controls & screen layouts make this potentially-great adventure game frustration to play. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPnmewxetNA

One of Mythicon's Games, Atari 2600, - Mythicon released handful of budget games for the Atari 2600, all of which are bad. I think the one I have is Starfox, tho I'm not 100% sure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmlHzIjLpJs

Herby: Fully Loaded
, GBA, 2005 - Gopod Graphics, non-existent gameplay. This is the only game in this list which I didn't really enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvSlLRLq73E

I'm going to ignore games which were part of compilations, otherwise I'd be here all day.


Herbie is a so so racing game but far from the worst. Compare it to Thunder Alley on GBA.

Honestly, the only reason I've kept the game for so long is because it was a Christmas gift from my folks and I just can't bring myself to sell it or trade it in somewhere. I've done that before with other games they got me as gifts prior to that, and I always felt horribly guilty about it afterwards. So after awhile, I just decided to keep it regardless...
