    The later editions of the Settlers series. The gameplay was really crappy. The best in that series is still Settlers 2 imo, everything after that simply sucked.

    [​IMG] Fantasy General - Perhaps not a bad game, but not my cup of tea.

    [​IMG] You obviously haven't played NWN online and in multiplayer...'Cause it's a blast!

    Worst Game Ever, Star Wars: Force Commander (The most difficult player interface I've ever seen)

    Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor and Master of Orion 3 are the two that immediately come to my mind.

    MOO3 has the record for the quickest I have ever decided that a game is a piece of **** and banished it to the bottom of my games shelves (about 1/2 hour of play). The stupid game pretty well plays itself with you just sitting there and swearing at the stupid interface as you clumsily navigate back and forth between screens only to find that the bloody planetary governors have decided to ignore what you told them to do only two turns before. :mad:

    Anyone heard of Seventh Legion? It's an RTS with really bland graphics and gameplay that consists of wait about five minutes, get money, build a tank, run out of money, repeat until you have a big enough army. Oh yeah, and gameplay could be heavily influenced by random "cards".

    I agree that the fantastic series of Settlers got raped after Settlers 2 which was brilliant.

    Oh and Heroes IV is a different game from the others. That doesn't make it a bad game, it makes it different which is it seems too much for the fans who wanted a Heroes 3b :rolleyes:

    Some others:

    NWN
    Seven Kindoms I II
    Darkstone

    I agree with Jesper and JSBB, that Pool of Radiance is not playable (I installed it's demo yesterday, but removed it after I had played it two minutes :shake: ) I couldn't even move my characters.

    What do you mean baldurs gate was the worst game ever. You havn't played many games then have you.

    Well i would say that the Command & Conquer series (including the red alerts) would have to be the worst PC games i've ever played. They are just so stupid. All you need to do is build ap a huge army and you've won. Theres no thinking involved at all.

    I can't say a game worst PC game ever, mainly because there are too much PC games out there but I agree with your list.
    For me it's Daikatana, my dreams shattered after waiting years for that game.

    Top 5:

    1. Ultima VIII: Pagan
    2. Rage of Mages
    3. PoR:RoMD
    4. Get Medieval
    5. 4-D Boxing

    Ultima VIII: Pagan in my opinion may not be as bad as some other games, but it was a big let down compared to the Ultima titles that came before it.

    Rage of Mages is just a poor game, poor graphic, poor gameplay, repetitive, etc. etc.

    PoR:RoMD, everyone knows why.

    Get Medieval was just entirely unoriginal, very childish and repetitive, and the graphics were fairly poor, as were the level designs. ;)

    4-D Boxing, I doubt many have played this, but this game has absolutely horrid graphics, it was very unwieldy, and it was pretty boring too.

    hmm

    Time Commando sucked (You don´t want to know)
    Counterstrike sucked
    Diablo sucked (the movies of the 2nd are nice though :) )
    Any sportgame
    NWN (Not as in horrible, but more as in disappointment)

    BTW, Command and Conquer kick ass

    "Any sportgame"

    Get some of your friends together and play some Madden 200[2,3] (PS2), that'll change your mind. :)
