More of the best worst screenshots ever!

Are games art? Who gives a sniff - let's look at a bunch of images so bad they're good

Oct 12, 2007

Our previous look at some of the dullest screenshots ever to be hoisted upon us by publishers attempting - in the most feeble of manners - to show-off their games produced such an underwhelming response of absolute indifference that we've inexplicably decided to do a sequel. If you missed the first riveting instalment - or simply forgot about it the very instant you turned your eyes away from the monotonous splurge of ditchwater imagery - then you can spoil yourself with its scintillating tedium by reluctantly clicking...here.

For this second ill-informed stab at screenshot mockery we've got even more of the best worst pics that we've ever laid our bloodshot peepers on (or, at least, have seen in the last few frantic hours as we scoured the internet for stinkers with all the desperate intensity of a wrinkled, yellow-fingered homeless scanning the ground for prematurely tossed cancer sticks). So, without any more self-deprecating slapping around the shrubbery, venture forth with your eyeballs for another frigid fandango with more of the best worst screenshots ever! We promise that you will be disappointed..
