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.

The Joker was nigh impossible to beat.

I always really loved King's Bounty, an RPG for the Genesis.  It's not exactly terrible, but comparing to the likes of other RPG releases at that time: Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star, it was a but of a joke.   The music was hideously catchy too.

I still love to play Rampage Total Destruction every now and then. It's been labeled one of the Worst Video Game Sequels on Yahoo but I still love eating people and smashing buildings. It has the original Rampage and Rampage World Tour as extras on the disc as well. What's not to like about that?
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

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 have that game too! I bought that game and One Piece Mansion from EB Games during the time they were trying to get rid of all their PS1 games. When I saw the games I remembered the ads I saw for some years ago, so I decided to buy both of 'em.

Truth be told, I really liked One Piece Mansion more. Just trying to finish a board game on Top Shop took a really long time, but my friends still had some fun. In One Piece Mansion you're this kid who owns an apartment and it's your job to make sure your tenants are so happy that they pay their bill at the end of the month (crazy, right?).

Also, the tenants' rooms were arranged like blocks and you can decide where to put them. But you have to decide carefully, because the tenants can affect the happiness and unhappines of the people around them. For example, there was a female tenant who would take frequant baths, she'd bring happiness to those who live to her left and right, but unhappiness to the people who live underneath her. Then there's the one tenant who keeps punching the wall on his left, you can guess who he affected. Also, you had a rival apartment who would send people to your apartment to mess with the tenants. He'd send a rocker gal who'd make everybody around her unhappy. Or a thief who would steal from the other tenants. When that happens you gotta head out of your room and blow a whistle at them. Because, if the tenants become overloaded with unhappiness, they explode. And they take some of the building with them when they explode!

The weird kid in the center of the cover art is the kid you play as.


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



Man, I Ioved that game! One of the best Squaresoft and Nintendo collaborations. I'm still waiting for it to come to the DS. That and Chrono Trigger. I mean, they keep re-doing the earlier Final Fantasy games.

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



I remember playing the demo of that. I thought it was a pretty fun game. Just moving your little guy so he can plant little bombs(?) to delete the cubes as they roll closer to you, otherwise you'd get squished. I was never able to find the retail version of it though.

Most of my other video games aren't really hated than they are just unknown. Like Rhapsody: The Musical Adventure (but, that'll be fixed soon, their making a DS version of it), Chocobo Dungeon 2, Chocobo Racing, and Guardian's Crusade.

Though, I guess some people really hated Viva Pinata. I loved that game so much, I sometimes spent hours of my time re-arranging my garden so I could raise as many different pinatas as I could. I played it so much, that the music (the one they play before you go into the love maze) got stuck in my friends head. He even complained about it.

When I thought about what bad game I liked the best, I decided to go for the gold:



Being the proud owner of an Atari system, I couldn't NOT have this game. And upon having it, I couldn't NOT try it. And upon trying it, I couldn't NOT enjoy it on some dark, naughty level knowing that the majority of its brethren sleeps the sleep of death crushed beneath tons of sand somewhere in Alamogordo, and that it basically served as the harbinger for the end of Atari as we knew it. With spellbinding graphics like this:

 

 ....I'm perturbed, shocked and amazed no one else has bothered to give it a try. For shame!!!!

Oh, I played the hell out of it when I was a wee lad. Had no idea it was destroying the industry while I was playing it, but I can believe it. It was no Halloween or Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

That was actually a port of a PC game, which I happened to own a loved the hell out of it.  It's a very early title by the same company that made the Heroes of Might and Magic series (also very awesome).  There was even a budget port to the PS2 which I own.

And they're releasing a new King's Bounty soon:

After looking through all the available rental titles, I'm assured by quite a few people that the Jumper game for Xbox 360 is laughably awful.  I'll give it a go and find out.  :)

My partner adores that game.

I still play "en ROM" the first TMNT game on the NES. Great fun. I also love an old NES standard, "Dungeon Magic."

The game I wish that other people liked is Starship Titanic.  Kinda buggy and confusing slideshow adventure game from the mid 90s, but it was written by Douglas Adams and you could have excellent conversations with the AI for each robot.

And the game I'm glad no one likes is Desert Bus, the mini game to Penn and Teller's epic commercial fail computer game.

I had that game! I think the reason why it wasn't received that well was because most of the fun came from conversing with the robots, rather than solving the puzzles.  Still fun, though.

Also I'm like the only person that liked playing deus ex:invisible war.

Is that the first one?  Because I like that a lot.

Also I really liked this so-so Kinnikuman arcade game at the local arcade in Japan.  It's one of those fighting games with limited moves, but it felt rewarding when you could get one of the cool power moves.
