I was watching the quick look for Crash Time: Autobahn Pursuit and Jeff said it was a good game if you can appreciate crap. So my question to you is what games have you played that are really bad but that's why you like them. Like Deadly Premonition for instance.

Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire... I've never played it myself but there's enough of it out there for me to think of it first.

@AlwaysAngry: Oh god I forgot about that game! Truly a terrible but awesome game.

yes, as shitty as any other game you play, at least you can physically play it. 
 
Big Rig is without a doubt the worst game ever.

Bart's Nightmare for I think it was Sega Saturn. I don't have a clue why but I loved it and still do, probably because it is one of the first games I ever played. Still I think if I was reviewing it, I wouldn't have much praise for it but it's still awesome.

Red Dead Revolver, which actually isn't that bad of a game.  It's just hugely under-rated.

Advent Rising. When it was good, it was damn good. When it wasn't, it was utterly broken. Half of the time the camera would break.

Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green, actually a lot of fun.

The Dynasty Warrior games or N3. I don't care what anyone says, smashing my face into the controller and being rewarded with hundreds of kills is oddly satisfying.

I still heart that game so much. Every now and then I fire it up and grind through levels to get more energy packs, hoping that one day I can tackle the later levels on a harder difficulty.

Doesn't count as a bad game because Cross Country Canada is clearly the best game ever made.

Well considering the online community was lacking and the DLC didn't come out as fast as I had hoped, i classify it as a great game that went bad...

Phantasy Star Universe. I liked how the single-player mode was broke into episodes. Kinda neat when you can play an RPG 30-45 mins and still feel like you're getting somewhere.

ironman demo, I'd gladly play through it for free

Ponying up another vote for this game.  Objectively, everything about it is god awful, and yet there's something maniacally addictive about the whole thing.  Achievements blow chunks, though.
 
I've heard that Deadly Premonition sort of falls under this category.  I haven't gotten my hands on it yet, but the little bit I played at a friend's gave me the distinct impression the game cost like $5 to make.  It's apparently better than it looks, though.

This game is great and super cheap. If you want bad good games, I would go for this.

That game is too awesome. My 2nd vote would be for The Club (Next to EDF it is the best $5 I spent on a video game). I have also put over a 100 hours into Defender Chronicles on my Ipod, I don't know if that puts it into bad game territory, but it is certainly polarizing with its massive amounts of grinding.

A favorite that I own and actually almost finished, was probably Hybrid Heaven on the N64. For some reason, that game always stuck out to me as a a trainwreck I couldn't tear myself away from.

@Glomerate: YES! I thought it was cool for an hour, and then I was obsessed with how terrible everything was. Textures, combat, enemy models, everything. 
 
It's still the best and only Wrestling-RPG ever.

Haha, really glad to see someone else remembers it!

Maybe not exactly what you're asking, but my vote goes to Sacred 2.

Oldie but a goodie Cruzin USA back in the n64 days.

#28 Posted by ATrevelan (606 posts) -
@wfolse1: Sacred 2 is wonderfully bad. I love the random commentary the characters give. 
 
One time my inquisitor was running through a field when he said something like "This will happen to all enemies of the inquisition!" I don't think I'd killed anything for at least 5 minutes.

Dude my thoughts exactly.  Also, I love the opening cutscene with the sweet power metal.

Never heard of it.
 
For me it was always Big Red Racing on the PC. I played the hell out of that game, realized it was god awful, stopped for a couple of weeks, and then played a ton more. I still don't know why.
 
edit: I just watched a youtube video of BRR. It's worse than I remember, and I forgot how 90s the menus are.

Yes that one is really bad, or so I have heard.  The game  that I actually played through that was the most completely broken was Gods and Generals.

Bad is a relative term, but here are some "bad" games I really enjoyed playing.
 
Shenmue series
Yakuza series
Any Sandlot-developed game
Disaster Report games (Disaster Report, Raw Danger, S.O.S., Disaster: Day of Crisis)
Any Kenji Eno game
Deadly Premontion
Just about any game based on an anime series.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
 
Honorable mention goes to the Suda 51 games, which are somewhat intentionally "bad", but revel in it.
