That resonates so much with me. Back in my Speccy and ST days I just couldn't comprehend video games being bad. So I used to force myself through them thinking it will 'click' with me at some point and that I'm just not getting it.

Dragon Age Origins

When the NPC DLC Salesman approached me that was it for that game.

Sword Quest Earthworld and Fireworld. They were among the biggest pieces of garbage released on the 2600 and on any system for that matter. What was Atari thinking?

There was the PSP version of Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects. I played the PS2 version with my friend and had a blast, so I decided to buy it for my PSP. It was so terrible that I played one match, and immediately sold it back to Game x Change.

Important to include the context here, as horrible as those games are. AVGN has a good video about these.

Thanks Voor. I saw it and I knew most of the stuff about those games, but it was still informative.

We can add Hydlide for the NES to this list. I admit, the only reason I actually played was because of Angry Video Game Nerd, but holy hell, this game is awful!

I always liked the Sega CD as it was one of the first major consoles I owned. I personally liked a majority of the games (especially the FMV stuff). That being said, Wirehead was only played once in my house. I started the game, couldn't figure a thing out, and turned it off. It's never been revisited again.
