Bad Games That I Can't Help But Like... Or At Least Remember Somewhat Fondly

Or, if you want to be all technical about it, "guilty pleasures." 
 
And yeah, "bad" is probably a strong term. Some of these games are merely middling. But at some point I don't want a huge title for the list.

Oh fuck. I remember playing Flicky as a kid. It was absolutely awful, but I couldn't stop playing it.

Yeah, Flicky is still addicting in a bizarre way, despite its crapocity.
 
And I actually really liked Shadow Warrior at the time, although I think part of that may have come from the fact I was really into the Build Engine. But "who wants some Wang?" is a tagline that makes my skin want to slide off my body and go quiver in a corner somewhere. Ugh.

Shadow warrior could go on a one game list titled " The last FPS I played before the turn of the century "

I remember Rolo To The Rescue. I really liked it, though it was kind of terrible, well, really very terrible.

Hey, I loved shadow warrior, so don't say it is a bad game. It's a game that... it has so much of... it makes... Ok! You've won. It is a bad game.

Dude, Rolo to the Rescue is fucking awesome.  Especially the horrible bad ending in which Rolo saves the day but is never happy again.

I don't see what is so awful about Flicky. It's a perfectly fine mid-80's arcade platformer. It's no worse than Mappy.

Oh, man! I'm getting a full on nostalgic overload watching a gameplay video Rolo  to the Rescue.

I actually prefer it to Mappy. In my circle, we've had legit money thrown around on Flicky competitions.
Also Time Killers is such a piece of shit, but I can almost see someone enjoying it ironically.

holy shit, I had forgotten Rollo To The Rescue, but it was one of my favorite games on megadrive back in the day. Nice to see someone else liked it too :))

I remember loving Bloody Wolf when I had it for the TG-16. It totally didn't hold up.
