also, i've found some people say E.T. (2600) is the 'worst game ever' more because it's _known for being known_ as such. yeah, it was programmed in six weeks, but i don't think this has to be the case - see this interesting article on one person's recent efforts to fix the game's bugs and take care of a few common complaints with the gameplay. (also gives you some insight into 2600 game code)

http://www.neocomputer.org/projects/et/

Quote
So, why do people hate E.T.? When it was released, it was well ahead of its time. It pioneered a lot of concepts that we take for granted in games today, but were unheard of in 1982 (Atari's Adventure and Haunted House had some of these features, but not all):

    It was one of the first home video games with a title screen.
    It featured an open-ended world with gameplay focused on exploration.
    It was completely non-violent. You can't hurt the bad-guys, and they can't hurt you. There isn't even any competition!
    You could complete the game. There are also several goals that you need to complete to win the game.
    There were multiple ways to complete goals. You can actually finish the game without falling in a single well.
    The game not only had an ending, it also featured an animated cut-scene as a reward.
    The game featured optional additional goals to complete (side quests).

While that seems like a great list of features, players in 1982 weren't prepared for that much change. You really needed to read the manual to understand the game and how to play it. As younger children were the primary audience, it's no surprise that it wasn't well received.

Of course, that doesn't explain why the game is so hated today. If we can identify the reasons why, we can try to address them. Here are the problems this page will address:

    The game seems incredibly complex. This isn't a real problem. Once you learn how to play, it's really very simple. You just need to read the manual, or watch a tutorial video, to understand it.
    The game is incredibly hard. It's difficult for novices to complete the game even on mode 3, the easiest setting. Fortunately, this can be fixed.
    You spend a lot of time accidentally falling in to wells. I believe that I know reason why this happens to so many people, and what can be done to fix it.
    E.T. is not green. I'm really surprised that this isn't a common complaint. We'll fix that as well.

oh god, I remember that.  I also remember trying to rotate the hand around to point the gun back at myself.  I figured even the player would want to end it rather than suffer through another crate stacking "puzzle"

I actually talked a total stranger out of buying that game. The sales guy at EB? Babbage's? was NOT amused.  icon_biggrin

yeah, back in the day when you could actually return crappy games.  I never abused that privilege, but I did appreciate it.  How I wish we had that these days.  Aliens CM, I'm looking at you

Pac-Man for the 2600 was far worse, because everyone knew what Pac-Man was supposed to be like, and it was a far cry from the arcade version.

You are 100% correct about that. Pac Man was a travesty on the 2600. I also seem to recall they priced it higher, like $60, which just added to the disappointment. Although I only played ET a bit it just seemed like a confusing game to me.

I can still clearly recall the terrible Pac Man dot munching and power pellet sounds. That's how badly memorable the whole package was.

Indeed.  The sounds were picked up by some sound sample library, and for the next 15 years, they were used on any and every TV show where a video game was being played.  That and 2600 Donkey Kong.  The video game version of the Wilhelm Scream.

As for my worst game, I'm going to go with Corridor 7 by Capstone.  A below average FPS built on the Wolf3D engine after Doom was out - bleah.

Back on AOL when chat was a thing one of the Capstone guys offered to send me Corridor 7 for free. I actually said "no thanks".  icon_razz


I was a beta tester for it - until I got kicked off the team for saying how bad it was during testing.

Thinking about this topic, I keep going back to Ultimas 8 and 9. Easily the two most disappointing games I've played, if not the worst.

Oh, I almost forgot about


I was so excited about it, even ran out to get it on release day, and then... wow.  I don't recall even learning the game enough to kill a single dinosaur.  I do seem to remember moving a crate, though.


I had completely forgotten about Hand Simulator 1998.

I played (and finished) Daikatana.  It was mediocre, but it was far from the worst game I've played.  Wizards and Warriors ca. 2000 was pretty awful, as the bugs made it unplayable after I'd spent my very limited gaming budget on it.  It still wasn't the worst.
 

The worst?  1982.  An Atari 2600 port of my favorite arcade classic, and it came out just weeks before my ninth birthday.  I wanted nothing in this world more than to own that game, and sure enough - I got it.  I opened it up, put it in, powered up the system and... was horribly, painfully disappointed.  Yes, I'm talking about you, Atari Pac-Man.

Really? The worst game you've ever played? Sure, it might not have lived up to the hype but it was still pretty fun. And why play a 40 hour+ game to completion if you thought it was terrible? Sounds torturous.

This is a tough one. I think the game that disappointed me the most was Total Annihilation: Kingdoms. I wanted to love it, and that made me hate it all the more.

The straight up worst game I ever played was Rogue Warrior. That game was train wreck bad (which I kinda expected).

I never thought it was all that terrible at the time.  It certainly didn't live up to all the hype and promises, and it had it's share of issues, but it had a lot of cool ideas.  I would love to see a new version of that game do the concept justice.

Oh man, yes!  After the awesomeness of the original TA my friends and I had gotten so pumped up for that game and it was such a crushing disappointment when it came out.

ah, TA: Kingdoms, the game where they decide to throw air units at you and there isn't anything you can do about it.  IIRC, that level was where I said screw it because I kept getting zerged by AI attacks and could do nothing but sit back and watch.

For me it would be a close tie between Spore and the Sims. Spore, I played a good 2 hours of it, and then found myself dozing off. I misunderstood the 'download your friends' creatures!' feature, and assumed that it meant multiplayer. The Sims lasted a day or two before I realised that I was not having any fun at all, and it all seemed like work. My sister enjoyed the Sims so much that she has all the expansions....

You're leading a charmed (gaming) life if those are your two worst games.

I tend to forget the bad ones, but I'll go old school and pick K.C. Munchkin from the Odyssey 2 system, which was a Pac-man knock-off. It did have its own level editor, but that was where the good ended, because the controls were shit, the sound effects cheap, and the graphics were primitive even for that era.

Kinda looks like a cross between Wizards of War and Pac Man.

I can't say I played many Odyssey 2 games. They had one in a department store that I would play every once in awhile but all the Atari consoles were getting the majority of the attention. I barely remember any of the Odyssey games. I do recall the joysticks on that thing were crap.

I dunno if Atari 2600's Video Olympics was the worst game I ever played, still thinking A2600 Pac Man, but Video Olympics was by far the largest disappointment for me. And it was the first video game I chose to buy. When my parents gave in to my nagging about getting an Atari 2600 they said I could choose a single game for it. I had played a bunch of the games in Sears or what not but having a single choice I wanted to pick a game that would last. So I saw Video Olympics. The game cover was awesome as it showed a bunch of athletes playing various sport games. And in red letters the package hyped that there were 50 sport games in the cartridge!  I was like if it has 50 games in it I could play it forever! It would be totally stupid not to get this game!

Well I was pretty naive in what to expect. When I gleefully shoved the cartridge in and turned on the system staring back at me was Pong. The 50 "sports" games were just variations on Pong. To make matters worse they were only 2-player games. And on top of that you needed the paddle controllers to play which we did not have.

I'm not sure what happened after that. I may have repressed that memory. But I know I wised up on purchases and expectations at the expense of some of my childhood.  crybaby

oh yes, the cold hard reality of buying a game and realizing you would have been much happier buying a mountain of candy.  those cartridge games were notorious for that, and later on, I learned that the higher the games claimed, the lower the variation and quality.

To be fair, Video Olympics was a 2600 launch title, so we're talking 1977 or so.  Video games in general hadn't progressed much past Pong variants yet.  But yeah, it does not hold up well at all, even compared to other 2600 games.

A game could be considered bad if it's buggy, ugly, poorly laid out, badly documented, unbalanced, or just brain-dead boring.  Some rare few might even be so broken on such a fundamental level that the core *concept* of the game is unfixably bad.

In order for a game to be the Worst, I think it would need to encompass as many of those faults as possible.  I humbly submit Master of Orion III.


The central conceit of MOO3 is that running an interstellar empire would be so complicated that no single person could possibly do it alone.  Instead of managing every aspect of your civilization -- the tax rates, construction jobs, research projects, military maneuvers -- the game developers at Quicksilver decided to put all of that under the control of the AI.  "You don't need to worry about finding new worlds to colonize!  The "governors" will do that for you!"

This may leave you wondering, "If the player doesn't colonize new worlds, build up the economy, invent anything or fight anyone...what do you actually do in this game?"  Fortunately one critical element has been left in your control: you are the only person in the universe that can click the "End Turn" button.

Oh, you can *try* to do other things.  The entire game is laid out with spreadsheets nested inside of other spreadsheets, and they're all filled with numbers and sliders you can move around.  Unfortunately for you, none of your changes will take effect until you click that End Turn button, and the moment you do, the AI Governor comes along and yells, "GODDAMMIT WHO MOVED MY SLIDERS NOW I HAVE TO PUT THEM ALL BACK EXACTLY WHERE THEY WERE!"

So you click End Turn.  Every time you do, new colonies are founded, technologies are discovered, and ships are built.  What do they do?  Only the AI knows, and even if it would tell you, none of it would matter because it'll all be obsolete within three End Turns.  Every summary screen is filled with new theoretical advancements that render whatever the AI was doing last End Turn completely out of date.

Sometimes there's a battle.  You'll know because the screen will switch to a black field where some beige blurs will move towards some grey smears and some buttons will appear to make you think you can somehow influence the outcome.  How unfortunate that none of them are labelled End Turn, though by the time you read them all, those blasts of hissy static from your speakers have stopped and the battle is over.  Victory over the beige blurs will be celebrated across the worlds of whichever AI was commanding the grey smears that day!


I've written a lot on this forum about how much I've disliked Fable 2, Dragon Age 2, and Assassin's Creed: Liberation.  They are sincerely three of the worst games I've played in the last decade.  But make no mistake: none of them earned anywhere *near* the level of contempt I have for Master of Orion III.  Seven years of waiting, and it is absolutely the worst game I've ever played.

Animaniacs:  Lights, Camera Action for the Nintendo DS.  It was a review title, it was putrid, and it was essentially a port of the GBA title of the same name.  It used the touch screen exclusively to pause and (I think) change characters.  It also used a /password save system/.  I think I gave it a 29/100.

ET

you know, that might be mine too.  I remember playing a ton of it as a kid, well before I knew the game sucked.

I played that as a kid too, and I remember assuming I was just too young/dumb to figure it out.   icon_confused

Same here. I was in 2nd grade at the time and just couldn't figure out what the hell I was supposed to be doing. I kept plugging away at it though, for some stupid reason. It's probably the worst game I have ever played.

Autistic Angel is right.

I've played some bad games and many disappointing games, but nothing, I mean nothing comes close to even standing in the shadow of the execrable shat-spackled monument to unfun-ness that was Masters of Orion 3. Battlecruiser 3000 A.D. annoyed me so badly I actually bothered getting into an online fight with Derek Smart trying to convince him what a piece of crap his game was. But for MOO3, I was so paralyzed by the badness, so shell-shocked by the turd-bagel so brazenly called a "game", that I couldn't even summon the strength to get angry.

On a side note, despite it's crap-tacular bug-ridden censor-destroyed incompleteness, I loved Temple of Elemental Evil. If only...

The truly sad thing about Temple of Elemental Evil was its potential.  If it wasnt so badly bug ridden, there was conceptually, an awesome game in there.  Thats a game that could really benefit from a remake.
