    As the title says, anything goes except those that are already common knowledge such as RoMD for example.

    It can be either a game that you have played yourselves or something you have seen a review of.

    I vote for Navy Seals, weapons of mass destruction, this game is so horrible they must have spent about 2 weeks making it.

    The one that I should have made in about 2 weeks from now...

    Basically, the player wanders in a very sideways manner and fights things using his great knowledge - designed for 5 year olds.

    Soldier of Fortune 2 - very bad visibility, everything is too dark, everything is the same color.

    Worst recent game I've played has got to be TOEE. It crashed every five minutes, corrupted my saved games and even when it did work perfectly it just seemed such a comedown from the likes of BG1 and 2 that I couldn't play it.

    The worst game i have ever played is, without a doubt something i have just played about 5mins ago. That is "Grabbed By The Ghoulies."(on x-box) JESUS I HAVE NEVER PLAYED SOMETHING, EVER, SO AWFULL! I have only played the demo, but as it seems to me all you do is run about some mansion with crappy weapons going from room to room, fighting crappy monsters...with a time limit. That's it. That's the game.
    The controls are the most awkward, idiotic and thoughtless set i have ever used in my life. :mad: :mad: :mad: :flaming:
    I'm actually getting *really* frustrated just writing this post now, literally, my veins are bulging as i type! I actually did waste a good 7 minutes of my life playing it. Oh god damn...i need to go take a shower and wash it away!!! :mad:

    Edit:
    Neriana, thanks for that link. It made me laugh to the extent that it heightened my mood just enough to stop me from going downstairs and smashing the crap out of the disc!...phew, thanx :aww:

    "Grabbed By The Ghoulies" :D :D :D :D :D


    Sometimes game names just scream out how bad they are. Was it a load of balls by any chance? ;)

    A load of balls would be a nice way to put it yes :D . If you can get a copy, i would strongly advise playing it just so from that day forth, any other computer game you play will seem about 50% better, than had you played it before "Grabbed By The Ghoulies." Shameful, just shameful! :shame: :nono:
    Ohh man now i've got angry again...shower time...

    Lethis - re-read the first sentence of the first post of this thread . . . . . . .

    But back on topic, the worst game I have played was that old Hyper-Olympics. Man, I must have permanently damaged my wrists trying to 'sprint' the 100m ..........

    I once played Daley Thompson's Decathlon which required you to jerk the joystick back and forth to make him run faster. The joystick broke before my wrists but it was a pretty close thing.

    To the poster mentioning Big Rigs; you should have seen G4's review of the game, they actually showed it in action. Totally hilarious how the truck woould simply fall through the bridges and so on! Plus, it could drive over any terrain and through all architecture without damage to anything. Totally hilarious.

    I'm going to be in for some trouble, maybe, but it was GTA3 for me. I played it for around 2 hours and threw it straight in the bin. I guess I really liked GTA2 and it's structure that the free form style sucked completely. Some say vice city is a LOT better, but I guess I'm worried about spending any money on it.

    [​IMG] The game that I like a bit is Project IGI.
    But I haven't played it for a long time, but I found it fun in the beginning.
