    I quite enjoyed Fester's Quest as a kid...and I don't remember having had too much difficulty completing it. I can think of far worse games, especially a couple from my Sega Megadrive days: Altered Beast, Last Battle, James Pond or Fantasia.

    Over 2 years after GR first made this article, Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing is now listed as their #1 Worst Game of All Time. They've finally acknowledged what I have been arguing for the past couple of years!

    How many episodes of Nerd Cubed and The Angry Video Game Nerd did you have to watch to make this list?

    The lack of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on this list begs to differ...

    Bit unfair to say Mario is Missing is bad as an adult reviewer. I played as a kid and really enjoyed. It wasn't that strenuous and I used to like to explore all the new cities. Shame it's thought of so badly as it's very good for its target audience.

    Takeshi's challenge anyone?
  • Divine Paladin - June 28, 2014 12:59 a.m.

    I was surprised we even got one Jontron-famous game in Daikatana lol. I mean, both that and Takeshi's Challenge are allegedly infamous games, but I'd never heard a peep about either before watching their respective Jontron videos - and as someone who generally knows a great amount about games and gaming, that said a lot to me. I'm guessing Daikatana has to be in because of the developer (if it's not because of Jontron, I mean), whereas Takeshi's Challenge doesn't have the infamy in the West since IIRC it was only a Famicom game.

    Scratch that, actually. I counted three Jontron-reviewed games (five if we count both Bubsy games). Probably should've finished the list before commenting so I could've seen Aquaman (and having to reload the page made me scroll through to see Charlie's Angels). I'm sure that it's probably a coincidence that Jon and GR both highlighted some of the same bad games. Going back to Bubsy, perhaps the 3D page should be reworded now that Bubsy 2 is on the list, to accommodate the fact that the previous games are apparently not middle of the pack anymore in GR's eyes.

    I'm gonna guess that there's a lot of titles there made by the old school company "Aklaim". If it said "Aklaim" on the box DONT RENT IT!!!! Hahaha

    Isn't it just a great feeling of acompleshment not owning or having played any of these games? Definitely for the gamer on a budget! !!

  • Redeater - June 30, 2014 1:20 p.m.

    You are correct.

    ok the only one i saw that wasnt a complete disaster. not saying that it was actually good was golden axe beast rider. still kept my attention as a hack and slash. but that was all that any of the golden axe games really were about. the originals had almost no story at all. its alot like the original gauntlet game NES. i understand the developers tried to restart the series but alot of games cant be restarted like that. in my opinion the worst game ive come across that i didnt see on hear was heavy fire. which is a cheesier version of the new and improved complete peice of shit rambo game. it the developers are going to take a huge title with a huge fan basis dont fuck it up. aliens colonial marines, all marvel movie title games except wolverine, transformers. but i will hand it to the ones who do it right. thank you hideo kojima for castlevania los, and thank you rocksteady studios for a batman game that actually doesnt suck.

    Super Noah's Ark wasn't a bad game, it was just a re-skin of Wolfenstein 3D. So if you enjoyed Wolfenstein, you'll enjoy Super Noah's ark. Also It was basically the closest the SNES had to a port of Wolfenstein 3D

    GR forgot about one game that deserves to be on the list; Sonic Labrynth for Sege Genesis. Sega thought it would be a good idea to make a Sonic game where they take out the thing that made Sonic so fricking awesome and have a purpose for life in the first place; RUNNING!! And don't even bother to just jump your way out of that hellhole, because you can't jump either! I've been playing Sonic games since I can walk and I never thought I'd ever hate one in my life.

    You forgot Call of Duty. In response to Unlimited Saga and why Jrpgs died out in the west, it is a result of changed gaming culture in the US. To be honest, Americans only play basic games with as little thought involved as possible such as sports and shooting. It's also a very xenophobic culture that can't accept anything Asian even if it's better than most western games. That's why western rpgs sell and eastern ones do not. To sum it up, Americans need to drop their guns and add some thought, culture, and diversity in their lives. This is from a well traveled American.

    That's why Dark Souls sold so well in Japan and not in America, right? Oh, wait... That's why Magic: the Gathering is so popular in Asia but completely foreign to us dumb Americans, right? Oh, wait.... That's why every super-hardcore RTS is developed in Japan, right? Oh, wait...
  • tamriilin - February 2, 2014 12:38 a.m.

    Also JRPGs dying out in the West is because the vast majority of them are complete trash nowadays. JRPGs are one of my favorite genres, but there were only scant few this generation (Lost Odyssey, FFXIII, Ni No Kuni are the only ones that immediately come to mind) that were worth anything.
