The WORST game of all time

Thats right, worse than ET. It's called Big Rigs: over the road racing
The game has been rated the worst game of all time by many critics. It has an 8/100 on metacritic.
I reccomend reading the whole Wikipedia page for a good laugh. It's all hilarious. I think that the developers just wanted to rebel against the company before it died, so they released this as a joke... it has to be.

I saw it on Gamespot, the video review is IMO more funny than the one posted here.

http://www.gamespot.com/pc/driving/bigrigsotrr/video/6086530/big-rigs-over-the-road-racing-video-review?tag=summary;watch-review

But you're right! The game is absolutely horrible, that it's actually good... For a little while. Even the patch(noted under the video in link) didn't fix that many things.

Maybe it's just because I saw the one at Gamespot before yours, so I knew what to expect.

You know, calling this the Worst Game of All Time implies that there's a game to begin with. There's no race, even with the update, the opponent drivers never cross the finish line, making the game STILL impossible to lose.

My EXACT feeling when I first put it in the xbox. :P
Code: Select all
"Look! Two difficulties! Medium, Hard!"
"Uhm... why isn't the analog working on this screen... wait, I have to use the d-pad. :P!"
"You can't kill a "nightwalker" (Any context is the correct context) without using tactics, they'll always finish you off. :P"
"Ffff--"
Couple of months later...
"I'd like to trade in these games..."
*Trades in a couple of good games before nonchalantly sliding vampire rain to the gamestop chick*
*Gets 25 bucks for everything*
*looks at receipt*
"Vampire rain ...$1.36"
"Ffff--"

I think the worst part of that story is my mom buying it at new price. :P

Call of Duty Modern Warfare series. Over hyped, boring, and required no skill. Granted, the cinematic gameplay was a decent change of pace, but it just sucked IMO.

The WORST?? No. It was a fun game. WAY overrated? Yes. If you give Bobby Kotick and Activision a penny are you selling your soul to satan? Yes.

But it's not a BAD game. Just not one I care about.

Dude, don't dis armored core! Especially 4. It's an acquired taste. Like Dynasty Warriors. The graphics and quality suck but it can get fun.

Nope. Big Rigs is the worst game ever. Period. Just because a game is insanely difficult, doesn't make it the worst game ever. A game that's such poor quality that you can drive 90 degrees up a mountain with no change in speed is just tiers below the lowest suckiness ever imagined by man.

Fallout 1 for me.

The game just seems like the worst thing ever to me. Played for 30 min trying to like it, but I couldn't.

I'm not saying it's the worst game because of its graphics or game play. It is clearly outdated. But I just HATE it for some reason. At least I only got it for 2 bucks.

I probably should have bought a slurpee instead imo.

Having my own Opinion ftw.

loljkz but seriously, I just didn't like it. Gameplay was horrid to me and blah. Couldn't stand it, it was like a crappy mixture of Turn based open world action point using thingamabobber.

I liked Fallout 3 better. Fallout 3 ftw!1!!

I didn't say I didn't like it because of it's graphics only?..

Sorry again for having my own opinion, to me it's the worst game ever made. And don't call me a troll for expressing my opinion the way I want.

Lets all chill.
And he called you a troll because he feels you're going out of your way to bash it. Though, it's quite biased both ways, as you can't force somebody to like a game because everyone else thinks it's good.
Remember, just because everyone else has a ball, doesn't mean other people can't have yoyo's. ;)
Anyway, more games you hate!

Man, I just wrote some huge short story defending Fallout 1 and Zhuge comes in with that before I post. :lol:

Alls I can say is 30 minutes isn't even enough time to make it out of the first cave, much less get a feel for that game. If you ever give anything a second chance in your life, let it be that game. If you don't like the battle system(which there's tricks you have to learn for it to make the best of it BTW), you don't even have to equip a weapon the entire game anyway. That's not even where the fun comes in.

Anyway if you wanna play an actual bad game, take Zhuge's suggestion and play Vampire Rain, or just watch some videos of it. Good god man, I'd rather play that big rig game than that.

Also no offense to some of the users here, but I'm sure I could go through the games in the downloads section here and add some to this list. Back in the day I downloaded a couple games that made me WTF :shock:

I've also downloaded some games that blew my mind, so it's definitely not the engines fault.

Heh, yeah. I've played a couple of truly awful ones. But almost all that I have played are brilliant.
Back in the day, my favorite 001 game was Dunce's super agent man. I was mind blown.
Galaria break now.
Anyway... There was a PS1 game called 'Ball breakers', (Shut up. :P) I still have it, still hate it. The most annoying gameplay mixed with the most annoying combat system and broken controls. Even as a kid, I knew I'd been wronged for my money. :P

Okay, I must say i am enjoying the original Call of Duty on PC (Got it at a second hand store for a dollar, the only amount I'd pay for a CoD game.), but Modern Warfare 2 is still the worst shooter ever.
No skill needed.
Bland plot (Although the ending was pretty decent.).
Recycled game play.
Lack of cover mechanics.

Just bleh!

CoD 1 and 2 were great. They should've just left it there. Although I had no problem with MW 1, and I had some fun with 2... but it's just all the hype.

I played it again after that post, and was slowly getting into it, I played it for 2 hours. But some of what I said still stands, the game wasn't good enough for me to come back and play off my saved game.

Anyways, it isn't really the worst game, but still in my list.

It's not a bad game, it's just extremely overrated. If it got rated high, it wouldn't be the worst game of all time, would it now?

By the way, there's a game called Dragon's Lair on the NES. I would say that's also a nominee for the title.
