    On topic, my teacher has given us a assignment to write a report on retro games and well, we have to point out the faults of these games and how we can improve on them, so i decided to write a report on bad games. But here's the problem, there are so many games out there and how bad a game is, it is pretty subjective. I could say that Lufia sucks(which it does not) and then there will be guys who say Lufia rocks..

    So i was wondering could anyone recommend any retro bad games that u had played before, i like to hear your opinion on them, u do not have to tell me the reason.

    U could just put it down as

    for example:

    Fester Quest for NES sucks

    or something like this and since i need to write about retro games, i would appreciate if u could mentioned a game that was made either during 1990 or before 1990s.

    Thanks for your help and sorry for any painful memories resurfacing. [​IMG]

    edit1: oops, it has to be an early game for classic consoles (Atari VCS, Intellivision), Arcades or 8bit Home Computers (ZX Spectrum, C64).
    edit2: well, nes is considered to be pretty retro i guess and so does snes(?)

    IMHO you should use the game that nearly killed gaming. ET for the atari.

    Custer's Revenge. You go through some side-scrolling action 'till you reach the point where you rape some Indian girl tied to a pole.

    Anything by THQ on the SNES. In fact most movie tie-ins of the 8/16 bit era.

    [​IMG] @ the video..... how did it sell?

    Is gb (just plain gameboy... it was made in 1989 right?) considered retro? If it is you should have it.... casper... a video shows very well how horrendous it was.



    Other than that I don't know anyhing else.... sorry

    And you take gaming course? COOL... poly or uni?

    @x.dominaiton: poly, game programming course.

    and thanks guys, i [​IMG] this assignment, one report 40% of my total grade [​IMG] and i am not a very good writer haha.

    and as for retro, my teacher mentioned 70s or 80s games, but as for me, i just take any game made before the 90s. and if i remember gameboy were in April 21, 1989 in japan, so unlikely i be able to write about gameboy games.

    Look no further than Shaq Fu for the SNES. I can't describe how horrible it is. there is even a project on the internet to buy all copies of the game and burn them. Google it.

    ya, i downloaded the game but it was made in 1994,and the games that i am techically allowed are before 1990 and since this game is in 1994, i can't do a report on that.

    But haha, when i told my friend about this, he didn't believe that there's actually a site run by people who are buying all copies of this game and burning them.

    It is. I have a video on youtube showing how bad it is. I'm not posting it because the sound effects from that game are a total ear rape.
