Since we have the best video game, I figured we should have a thread for the worst. So in your opinion, what would you consider the absolute worst video game? This can be based on what you have personally played or just generally speaking.
Does anyone remember Superman 64? LOL
I feel like this has to be number one for many other people out there. It was basically everything wrong with video games in one video game. lol
That was the first n64 game I ever played. I was at my cousin’s when I tried it and it made me glad my parents got us a playstation. LOL!
I love Mario games growing up and when we got our first family PC, I got a very special gift from my grandmother for my birthday… It was Hotel Mario. That will forever be the worst video game to me. It makes no logical sense.
Was going to say Superman 64. I loved my Nintendo 64 but that game just ruined the entire console for so many people. I was one of the lucky few who always had multiple consoles because I had older siblings and 2 of them worked and bought them themselves so seeing the comparison between that game and games on the Playstation was just pathetic.
Easily Superman 64. I can’t think of any other game that has been that bad. Like they legit made the worst possible game imaginable for the N64. Don’t get me wrong, there were some duds but holy crap was that an awful game. I remember my mom let me rent it and she was mad I wasn’t playing it lol
Theres Bubsy 3D
any full-priced game that has microtransactions in it, to be real
I absolutely HATED that game. My biggest issue with it was that my youngest brother was obsessed with it. I think he was too young to understand how terrible it was.
This is true man, so true. I can’t stand that this has become a standard for so many gaming companies. I blame EA for this crap. I swear they started it.
Of the games I have played, Batman: Dark Tomorrow takes the cake. I had it for the GameCube. I actually had no real interest in it and it was bought as a Birthday gift for me. I should have just returned it but nope, I opened it… from the horrible graphics to the downright terrible camera angles, this game was nothing but a giant repetitive mess.
I completely forgot about that hot mess. I remember my cousin rented it one of the weekends I was staying at his house. We ended up taking it back after 30 minutes and getting them to exchange it for something else.
I am sure many others did. Anytime I meet a huge Batman fanatic around my age, I bring up the game and they immediately say that they pretend it was never made.
BIG RIGS. At full price.
It was Bathesda who started it, but i think activision and EA took it to a whole new level, yeah.
EA started the mico-transaction and DLC heavy trend though, at least in the games I played. Now more franchises/companies do it and it can be pretty darn annoying.
I personally like to exclude the absolute trash fires that clarly had no soul put into them when answering this kind of question.
To me, the answer is ARK: Survival Evolved. The game is an absolute trainwreck.
Its entire history & disappointingly its success is built on a foundation of lies, broken promises, abusive company practices (both from higherups to developers and also company to community what with all the censorship on their forums and outright admin abuse on official servers…).
I had been saying for years ARK sits on a throne of a niche survival genre where people don’t have alternatives so they’re forced to play that shitshow, and it will only take one semi-decent game to kick it off of its throne. Low and behold Valheim is now a thing, and ARK dropped from a 300-400k population down to a 20-40k population.
The only fun that can be had with ARK is by completely changing the way the game functions and extensive configuration alteration alongside a ton of mods that add onto existing parts of the game or at the very least add enough content to make the game worth the time to play.
Don’t even get me started on how 80% of ARK’s “features” are just ideas taken from community mods, or them just outright adding parts of community mods to the game.
