    Hell yeah for Shadow Harvest: Phantom Ops!

    This is why you can't just have bad games...and pardon the movie references... Is it good bad [Iron Sky], or bad bad [In the Name of the King]? Is it intentionally bad [Army of Darkness], or was it genuinely trying to be good [Elektra]?

    Well this is new. Guys, I haven't been here in awhile, is this our latest mascot troll? How long has he been around? Pretty cute, if you ask me.

    SOMEBODY had to fill the TehTimeIsN0w void!
  • Rub3z - January 9, 2014 9:41 a.m.

    That guy was a brilliant mix of awesome and awful. I'll miss his inane trolling rants about Nintendo being homosexual and Call of Duty having the best graphics or whatnot.

    Awesome article! Right on every point! I myself love to buy bargain games for pennies and have a few minutes of enjoyment from them. Every once in a while I actually enjoy one enough to keep it! You don't know what bad voice acting is until you've played the awesome Robot Alchemic Drive. And Iron Man is completely unplayable until you change the control settings (and even on easy you can lob missiles at the boss at point blank range for 10 minutes before the level finally ends). Am I the only one who loves Sewer Shark? Don't even get me started on all the great PlayStation and Saturn games that float around the bargain bins. Some of them are extremely entertaining in their wacky, broken ways.

    Much obliged! I don't remember the voice acting in R.A.D., but I had a demo disc of that game that I loved so much. If you didn't trigger the robot boss, you could literally just fly around the empty city to your heart's content. It was like the ideal flying dream in video game form.

    R.A.D. is a bit on the hard side so I haven't made as much progress as I would like. But I have some friends who love cheesy movies and such, and they literally could not stop howling with laughter at the voice acting as I played.

    Well, I enjoy playing with Resident Evil 6. I don't know if that counts as terrible, but I've heard that calling it. ...and I also enjoyed Bubsy back in the day.

    Judging by the reviews, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was pretty terrible. But I loved every second of it...even the Star Destroyer part with the constantly swooping TIE Fighters and wonky controls. It was the first attempt to have a video game be a significant part of the lore since the LucasArts games of old, and was a total wish-fulfillment fantasy for a crazy Star Wars geek like me.
  • jedisamurai - January 7, 2014 12:39 p.m.

    The part with the Star Destroyer at the end was so bad it was awful. But for a rent or to buy and beat once, I gotta admit that game was pretty ridiculous in a pretty good way.

    How dare you! Castle of Shikigami Kung Fu Rider, Cho Aniki, Spelunker and especially Deadly Premonition are all fun games.

    Boku wa Da-Da-Da-Da-Invader!!!! ヽ(^_^)ノ

    I watched her perform that live (as did Ryan) and I can safely say that we both loved our lives to the fullest
  • Squander - January 11, 2014 7:20 a.m.

    haha, now look at that! I watched her birthday-performance at Ageha a year ago - feeling loved and utterly complete...I guess that makes three :D

    Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements...Favorite bad game...that is all
  • Vonter - January 4, 2014 10:36 a.m.

    I still like to replay Castlevania 64. Is it possible liking a bad game because you eventually get very good at it, like exploiting some mechanics?
  • Shayz - January 4, 2014 6:41 a.m.

    My favorite Final Fantasy is 12, followed by 13. Yeah, they were both really bad final fantasy games, and maybe 12's story, or 13's linear gameplay weren't the best either...but I still liked them for the beauty, the music, and the different gameplay style. I also love Dust 514 as an amazing, everchanging free-to-play game. It doesn't have the playerbase of CoD or the realisticness of Battlefield, but at least the game feels like it has meaning when I play. The community is great, it isn't dominated by 12 year old kids, and I get to connect with EVE players who then shoot lasers from space down to the planet.
