Your favorite bad game
« on: May 20, 2008, 12:08:18 AM »
Have you ever had a game that you really liked, but you seem to be the only person in the world that didn't hate it?

For me, this game was Enter the Matrix... It got terrible reviews, no one i knew liked it, and yet i couldn't get enough of it at the time.

I was just wondering if anyone has had this kind of experience with a bad game that they really liked.

Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects for Gamecube...this game was awesome.

The only Marvel game that was good.

Top Shop


One of the last games to come out on the PS1. It was a lot like Monopoly, only it took place on a cross-section of a mall and you bought storefronts instead of properties. Hard to explain the details, but if you got a couple people together to play it, it was hours of fun. Nobody liked it. I don't hink anyone else actually played it. It was poorly translated (Your character could make peeping noises when he walked if you bought him "Chrip Chrip" shoes. :^)) but it was FUN!

I loved this game so much and I've never heard anyone else say a good word about it.

You're kidding, right? You didn't like Marvel vs. Capcom, the old Marvel beat-em-up arcade games, Spider-Man 2, or Ultimate Alliance?

I loved Enter The Matrix, I feel you.

There's one game that I really liked and played a lot, but my college roomates thought I was nuts for playing:

Heated Seats iRiffs: Touched by an Angel | Marked for Death | Runaway | Heated Shorts (shorts collection)

Here's one that I played all the time:

Imrahil: Don't care about Riding with Death.

Bob: Turkey.

Action Batch:  Woah, let's all mellow out and rap about this.

Trailer Park Tycoon for the PC.  Pretty limited as far as tycoon games though and it's obviously built around a one joke premise but dammit, it was kinda fun.

Oh I have to find that, I've never even heard of it, I liked the Zoo themed Tycoon game.

It came out a few years ago now but I'm sure you can still get it somewhere on the Internets.  I noticed some game sites still had the demo for download.

Check the $10 and under bin at your local Best Buy or Target. It's where Tycoon games go to die. :^)

BAM! and it's for XP, I think the original was for Windows 98.

I've always been partial to the orignal Batman on the NES.

It's a typical, terrible platformer... but at the same time, it's in a tiny little class of awesome all by itself.
