    Predator for NES. "WTF" is the only way to describe it.

    Same here. I wanted to play it really badly, it seemed like a cool game, but the shitty interface, the deadly long loading times, the ugly stupid framerate!(And I was forcing point filtering to speed it up just so I could have some lights and shadows!). I unisntalled it pretty fast. I always feared to load the character, knowing it could take ages, and by then I probably lost all interest in playing it.

    Abomination was adequately named, although surprisingly enough a cult fandom did develop behind it.

    Currently on the top of the modern game list is Final Fantasy XIII.
    For several reasons. I want to finish it before I review it but I don't even know if I can. Most of the complaints are the corridors, the alien feeling world (some back story could've helped), annoying characters (Tried to like 'em but it's the same crap, whiney, bitchy teens).
    When it comes to that story why the hell am I given cliffs notes the whole way through?

    I got bit by the nostalgia bug and got fucked by something that didn't even really feel the same as it did in the past. It just seems like the worst game I've played recently.

    In the past........Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde for the NES. Literally unplayable.

    I am surprised that nobody in this topic has mentioned Superman 64.

    Ugh, I remember playing this game when I was a young lad....It was so bad it nearly gave me a seizure...

    Calling that game shit is an insult to shit...

    I'll admit I rented it before as a kid but it doesn't deserve mention. Cause it's not a game.

    Definitely Final Fantasy VIII. My goal is to beat every US Final Fantasy title (up to 10), but FF8 stands firmly in the way as a piss-awful game that I just can't force myself to play through.

    ^ Enter the most over-criticized decent game ever. I guess inevitable, given that it came right after the most ridiculously overhyped and overrated crappy game ever.

    Apart from the way it handled magic, I don't see how FF8 is any worse than the rest of them. Then again, it was a while since I beat it. The battles are the same, several of the characters are pretty much the same, the layout of the game is exactly the same as soon as you reach the world map, and later predictably aqcuire an airship/airplane.

    On top of my head I can think of only two games:
    -The Bouncer: I bought this for 5 euros just for the hell of it because I knew it sucked but...god...it exceeded my expectations! The battle system is relatively deep but the enemy AI is so dumb you can beat the whole game with the most basic combo. The structure is terrible, you fight three-enemies-three and then a 5 minutes long cutscene plays. Repeat till the end of the game. Booooring. The ridicolous story also takes itself way too seriously and you can beat the whole in two hours. The first time you play it. Without dying once. Truly horrible.
    -DragonBall Final Bout: an unplayable glitchfest. That's all I can say.

    On the whole I like the game but...
    -The Guardian Force system is obscenely broken.
    -Only Squall and Rinoa get character development and a lot of people find them unlikable.
    -The story is kinda stupid and with some idiotic (really really idiotic) deus ex machina.

    FF8 is the the game in the series I like the least.

    How many were there? I recall Terminator: Redemption which was half-way decent if not piss-off frustrating at times.

    FFVII was a worth entry into the FF series IMO, as it expanded on the esper system from FFIII (which was awesome).

    FFVIII was a terrible mess with unlikable characters, fairly lame story and a magic system that was designed to piss off the player.

    FFIX though set the ship right.

    Thank you for this... I'm trying very hard to not buy FF13, and little snippets like this help immensly.

    Hahaha, I'm playing it now, and it's not that bad, not as bad as Dragon Age at least.
    Worst game I've played ? Boring, ugly, not funny and overhyped : Postal 2.
    Just a good ol' retarded turd sandwich, not nearly as fun as Redneck Rampage ("Dey tuk yer jeeeerb!!")... (wow, funny automatic d-e-y thingy :lol: )

    And in the "WTF Happened To That Awesome Series?" category, Close Combat: First to Fight, bad fps propaganda shitsac.

    Btw, I love BombX.

    I can second many games that have been mentioned here, especially in the "disappointing" category, but instead I'll bring up a couple of titles that haven't been mentioned.

    Rise Of The Robots: A beat'em-up that took full advantage of the newest graphical technologies of 1993. Static screenshots look OK, but the game itself looks terrible and plays worse. It's a one-on-one fighting game where you cream all the other robots in the game except the last one, which bears more than a striking resemblance to the T-1000. The really worst thing about this game, is that it somehow spawned off a sequel.

    Aliens - The Comic Book Adventure: I don't know where to begin with this one. It's a Cryo game, so it bears some minor resemblances to Dune and KGB, but they were not this bad. Absolutely horrible controls, useless dialogue, bad voice acting, timed events that you don't even know of until you suddenly die, game-vital items hidden in the stupidest of places, atrocious combat, pointless steps you have to go through to accomplish the most basic of tasks, etc. I struggled with this game for 2 hours before giving up on it for good - and I didn't even see a single alien!

    And a couple of real disappointments:

    Ultima IX: I'm amazed that nobody has mentioned this one yet. The final chapter in one of the greatest cRPG sagas ever made - and it's a stillborn turkey. I'm not gonna waste many words on this one, except that the most tear-inducing fact about U9 is that it seems to have set several industry standards on how modern RPGs should be made. You'd think Bethesda learned game design by playing this game.

    Serious Sam II: Take everything that made Serious Sam into the cult-classic FPS that it is, throw it out the window and start ripping off other successful FPS games instead. That's Serious Sam 2 in a nutshell. No redeeming features. Nothing that makes it unique and interesting. Just the same old drivel that every other FPS offers...and almost always does so better than Serious Sam 2 did.

    While materia was better than junction (although as I've mentioned before in other threads, I actually like junction), FFVII charas are hardly any better than FFVIII charas. Actually, I'm yet to see any well-written and likeable characters in FF series in general, aside from Garnet maybe.

    FFXI did set the ship right, but unfortunately wasn't liked very much, particularly by the FFVII fanbois, so the ship was right not for too long. As for FFVIII, no matter how much critique it gets, it's hardly the worst game in the series compared to the mess of FFII or FFX-2, not to mention a load of really crappy spinoffs off the FF series.

    Cause they're the only two charas that matter. And, at least Squall is less annoying than Cloud.

    Well, in FF7 most of the cast had some kind of character development, even though the story revolved around Cloud and Aeris.

    And I hate with a passion Squall and Rinoa (especially her) while having no problems with Cloud but I guess that falls in the "personal opinion" category.

    I just found it strange that someone would judge it as the worst game they ever played. I don't love it, but I think it's pretty far from that.
