The shittiest games i ever bought

 I dunno if you have this in europe/america but here there are tons of music Cassette/CD shops that sell the shittiest 90s games ever made, for about 20 shekels which is 5 USD ... ive bought many of these when i was a kid because i didnt know any better, and the gaming education where i come from used to be pretty basic and still is. 
 
I was going through my big CD bag and stumbled upon those old games, along with Fifa World Cup 98 and Midtown Madness which i ofcourse consider the greatest games i playes as a kid. So here's a list of the crappiest games i ever bought from those fucked up shops, thinking they are masterpiece games...  
Games-- no, SHADOWS of games that just suck from every aspect possible and make you wanna kill an old man crossing the street:
 

 
Somebody's gonna say "Hidden & Dangerous ? are you crazy?"  well as a kid i didnt know what the fuck was going on in that game, and it is pretty old and crappy, so it left a bad impression on me

Me neither... 
 
Mine would have to be Broken Sword 4. I was really dissapointed with that game... I even bought the copy to help Revolution, but in the end it was broken sword 1 and 2 in 3D with akward movement and behaviour. 
 
A sad turn for the franchise.

I've never played a game and thought it was complete shit (contrary to when I say a game is shitty, I only mean I don't like it.). I guess the closest I've come to actually thinking a game is shit are theses two:
 

  • X-Blades
  • No More Heroes

  • Enter the Matrix
  • Max Payne 2 for the PS2
  • Legacy of Kain: Defiance
 
There was nothing wrong with Max Payne 2 itself, but the PS2 port was horrible.  It's one of the only games I've seen where gamespot's review score for one version was much lower than another.  I bought it, played a few levels, then went right back to the store and got the Xbox version.

believe me, i played that, its HEAVEN next to the monstrosity im talking about
Posted by TheHBK

Yeah I bought some crappy games before but dont remember many of them.  I would like to hear more about these stores you speak of.  I mean, is it like Gamestop here where they sell crappy used games as well for cheap?  Or did they promote them over there as being really good? 
Worst game I got was the Pocketbike Racer on the 360 when it was 5 bucks at burger king. 
Got spider-man 3 because i was a big spiderman fan and thought the first two movie games were pretty ok.  What a let down. 
I think that is pretty much it, I have been pretty careful with my purchases, even on cheaper games.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate the game.  I think it's a good sign that Enter The Matrix stands out to me as one of the worst games that I've bought.  It means that I generally avoid crap.

Well, its a fact that arabs have this public market, so public and common that it just becomes an alternative to the real expensive shops. 
I mean, thats how the millions in asia and the 3rd world countries live.. they have these endless markets that are pretty much a clone of the real thing, where everything is so damn cheap and the quality is crappy, and the poor/cheap crowds just buy their unoriginal crap from there. 
  Now i live in israel, its a modern country but its hard to explain how the arab citizens live, and how their life is so contradicted between living like the jews and being all fancy, and living like themselves and going to those crappy markets.... its impossible to describe. just so you understand the situation, israel has about 6 million citizens, the 2 big majorities are the jews (4.5 million) and the arabs (over a million), all israeli citizens. i come from the arab side and have a israeli ID .
 
So, those cassette shops are just another type of unoriginal sellers, where none of the music cassettes/discs are legit and everything has been taped on blank CDs and then they put a sticker on them, of the album cover and what not.. same thing with the games. theyre just burnt onto these shitty CDs and have a shitty sticker of the original box art on them... they're sold really cheap and usually dont work when u insert the disc =D

@Ahmad_Metallic:  
Oh i See.  So then is this a case where you were just uninformed about good games and bad games, and just bought somet that looked good or do most of these shops limit themselves to crappy games?  Sounds like these being counterfeit shops, they should have good games aswell.

Some random Dragon Ball game for the PSOne, can't remember the name, but it was really bad.

Nobody seems to get the difference between games they think are shit and games that are just, well you know, bonafide shit.

well,  if i go back in time now and see what they used to have, i MIGHT spot one or two games are used to be good back in the day, but that probably wouldnt happen. they just had the worst games i guess because they were easy to copy and mess with? im not sure. so yeah its that i was uninformed and thought that crap was good

Critically acclaimed doesn't mean it was his cup of tea. 
I for one absolutely adored it. I t was like some weird amalgamation of my life and the life I wish I had with a pastiche of everything I love as a background.

The Worst game i have ever played has to be . . .  any lego games and music games are quickly become redundant to me as there so god-damn many of them. Theres only so many times u can hit green, red, yellow,blue and orange before realising . . . this blows
Posted by TheHBK
@TheLark:

Hmmm, well this is a pretty sad argument.  Just because there are lots doesnt mean they are bad.  I wonder how this makes your point valid.  Lots of first person shooters doesnt mean COD4 is terrible.  Lots of RPGs doesn't mean Fallout 3 is fucked up.  Also, the idea of hitting the buttons, that is pretty weak, you could say the same thing, "man how many times do I need to pull the trigger to beat this game?"  " How many times do i need to press X to beat Persona?"  "How many times do i need to press A to jump then x to reload then the RB to throw a grenade?  Let me  win already!"

The worst game I've ever owned was a gift from my parents: Powerpuff Girls: Chemical X-Traction. The story seemed decent enough with some pretty find cut scene animations and voice overs, but the battles could not be salvaged. 3D fighting plane, one on one, very difficult to control the characters, and the flying felt busted. Oh yeah, and there's no music during battles.
 
Here's a video with both the first cut scene (1:38 for opening, 2:50 for the story) and some gamplay (5:06). Granted, it doesn't look so bad, but most of what I've declared defunct have to do with controls.

Don't you mean, ALL of them were bad?
 
In my case I thought DBZ Ultimate Battle 22 sucked bad when I was a kid.

I remember playing the demo for hidden and dangerous. It was fun for me but I couldn't say whether it was a good game since I never played the full version. The shitties games I ever bought are:
Soldier of fortune: Payback
Saints Row 2
Postal
Bart vs the World
Redneck Rampage
Untold Ledgends
Mortal Kombat 3 and Killer Instinct for the original Gameboy

WOW, obviously you forgot about Lego Island, that game fucking rocked

Alone in the dark, the sad thing is i really wanted to like that game, but after i kept failing the first infuriating driving level and I kept crashing at the end. I did this over and over and couldnt do it so i watched a you tube video on how to finish it and it turns out i had to pause the game to let the level finish rendering....AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH  so angry. sad thing is i actually played to the end of that game. must be a glutton for punishment

Saints Row 2? I fucking love that game.

Rocket Power Beach Bandits 
Death Jr.

Someone got me Legend of Alon D'ar for Christmas or something a few years back, I couldn't get past the first half hour because it was so terrible.
 
I bought the collector's edition of Prey, with the metal case and figurines. I didn't think the game was completely terrible, but it wasn't well recieved by critics.
 
I bought the PS2 version of Unreal Tournament. It's... not very good.
 
A bunch of other stinkers I got as gifts... Swagman (what? PS1...), Johnny Bazookatone (...what? Another PS1 game...), MDK2 for the PS2 (the PC one was far and beyond better)...
 
 I don't really feel like digging further into my shelves. XD

I bought it for PC. It was horrible optimized and crashed a lot. I'm sure it was a lot better on the console.

I loved the game too.  
Luckily I've loved pretty much every game I bought, and I can't think of any games that I could call shitty.  
 
Edit: There was one game now that I think about it. I bought BMX XXX one day at Gamestop for a buck. That game was awful. NOthing about it was any good.

Lego Island did fucking rock! I still have that Lego guy with the red cap (can't remember his name) that came with the game somewhere in my box of Legos.
