Anything thats a tycoon, sim, or (some) strategy. I play it until I beat it and the endings are the worse in game history. They maybe show you some stats and a picture. Or a lame animation that is a little scary when sometimes how long it takes to get there..... Im just going to start cheating


ZooTycoon
Raiload Tycoon
Simcity
Simtower
Simant
Anything with a Sim in it

Civilization4 with a huge map (no way to beat it without cheating, or it lags to a fail on any PC)

Here's one that sounds good, but I'm sure is bound to dissappoint , in fact the banner is staring at me from the bottom of the screen.  It's 'The Princess Bride ' pc game...http://www.vimeo.com/1188514

Wasn't there someone a few weeks ago claiming that the Princess Bride game was the best thing ever? :^)

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.

I've actually been trying to find that one for a while, but I always get outbidded on eBay at the last second.

There's two games that always pop into my head when it comes to bad ones that I liked (more if people count the Tycoon style games. I do love those games, especially RolelrCoaster Tycoon, that was a great one). First is Enter the Matrix. I guess it's partly because I didn't encounter a lot of the glitches (got really lucky there), and also because I really loved the fighting, it was so cool to watch (even if I couldn't really control it part of the time, but this was back when I thought things like that were more my fault then the game's design). Plus the hacking aspect was great, I spent a lot of time unlocking various bits of code with that thing.

The other one is Jaws: Unleashed. Sure, it had some nasty glitches (the likes of which I've never really seen before), the camera was a living hell, and the controls were half broken. But it still let you play as a giant Great White Shark and dismember people in a wide variety of ways. I happily forked over money for that game, and I had a good time playing it.

Journey: Escape was a personal favorite.  Save Journey from the groupies!  Get them to their mothership and have them...ESCAPE!

Awful.  I loved it.

Didn't they redo that game with Aerosmith a little while later?

They did some kind of game with Aerosmith, but I'm not sure if that was more in line with the Journey arcade game.  I was talking about the Atari game.

Don't forget Michael Jackson's Moonwalker. :^)

There was also a nifty isometric Michael Jackson arcade game, in which Michael would... rescue.. young children... Hmm. Also you could grab Bubbles and turn into a giant robot. :^)

Metal Gear 2 was a pretty dumb game story-wise (at least in its original translation).  Deadly poisonous Zanzibar hamsters, anyone?


I also enjoyed the PS2 game version of The Mummy Returns.  (slinks away in shame)
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

I wouldn't say this is a favorite but the whole idea of this game being the worst one ever makes it a favorite of mine.

Big Rigs - Over the Road Racing

Game footage (music added)

Game review with footage. The guy is very angry and curses a lot but with more reason than most video game reviews.
