I've been reading a lot of retro gaming articles lately and one interesting thing that i've come to notice is that when i was young, i would trudge through any game, no matter what. frequently i would find the fun in them because, honestly, it never even occurred to me that games could be bad. i guess its because, to some degree, i didn't understand how games were madeor that people made them. They just kind of... WERE. It has been baffling for me to read about how some games, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES have longstanding reputations for being poor games. To me, as quirky as they got, they were just that. Quirky. And extra challenge to be overcome.
Yet still, games could make me frustrated and angry at them. Usually for wasting a rental or being a poor game swap. I think the first game I realized was just BAD was The Adventures of Bayou Billy. A game that my brothers and I couldn't beat, not matter how hard or long we played.
What the the first game you remember hating? Why?
