Technical Foul: The Worst, Most Heinous Basketball Games Of All Time

Chris Buffa (Modojo): This week marked the release of ShaqDown, a surprisingly good video game featuring former NBA player Shaquille O'Neal that has little to do with basketball. The premise? The Big Aristotle beats up zombie mutants to save the world, or what's left of it.

Crazy plot? Sure, but we like ShaqDown. The games on this list, not so much. A handful of companies failed to capitalize on NBA stars, instead releasing atrocious and at times comical titles featuring some of the best players to hit the court. That said, try not to stumble out of bounds watching this hilariously “turrible” footage.

The story is too old to be commented.

Just because Shaq has his own game doesn't make it a "basketball" game. Otherwise you'd have to say that UFC Undisputed and Ready to Rumble Round 2 are basketball games because Shaq is in those two.

I agree. Now the games like Shaq-Fu and Chaos in the Windy City are indeed terrible like the author mentions. But since the objective isn't to beat another team on a basketball court means it can't be classified as such.

Slam City on the other hand, can definitely be considered one of the worst basketball games ever made. I wonder if the people who starred in that game actually are proud of it and list it on their resume.. ;)
