This retro-oriented list describes the ten worst video games of all time.
Oh my goodness! How is Paperboy on a WORST VIDEO GAMES EVER list?! That game was awesome. Agree with Shaq Fu though.
Paperboy is waaaay overrated.
Paperboy was the best. Those who don't appreciate it are TOO YOUNG to understand.
Joust? Are you serious? That game was tits.
Where's Grand Theft Auto.
oh let me guess you must play games based on how well they sell big surprise...
I Actually liked Joust, It had 2 players to :)
This list sucks, I didn't even see action 52 which IS the worst game ever made for the fact that some games you could never pass and some games didn't even play. It also cost people $200 DOLLARS!!! I also do not agree with some of the games on this list like paperboy. Seriously?
or Aquaman for God's sake? Those games were balls.
lol so much moderation today.
That Top 10 list is pathetic... Are these kids gamers? I could think of 50 more games worse than those...
LBP... just kidding!!! I remember when IGN gave it a 9.5 fans of the "other" brand were literally saying "9.5 FLOP!" seriously WTF was up with that?! Anyways, Monsters vs Aliens was REALLY bad! I got the Platinum but that damn game had 25 levels but they were all EXACTLY the same 3 variations 3 types of levels.
Fail list. There are some neat titles and first spot is inarguably Big Rigs.
Fatal Fury, Paperboy, & JOUST on anything is stupid. Elevator Action was one of the best games that generation. I put many quarters in that game growing up. This is another site that cant be trusted.
this list fails... Paperboy? are you serious?! i had so much fun with that game, dont you dare put it on this list.
WHERE IS BIG RIGS? For those who don't know how bad it is, here. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
this list is void. paper boy?? pleeze they should add cod [email protected] =P lolz IW FTW
I loved paperboy... They should add Goonies 2. I remember my parents bought me that game when I was little, but that game was absolute garbage. I can't forget those weird rooms I used to get stuck in.
LMFAO on the part about Fatal Fury: "The characters were poorly conceived, the after-fight dialogues were a monstrosity of Van Damnesque platitudes, and the final boss was about as scary as a 4th grade trick or treater in a Wonder Woman outfit. Y"
this list blows.
I don't even know where to begin here. Elevator Action was a sick game. So was Paperboy. So many things wrong with this list.
after reading this list, someone needs a beat down.
Some of that list made me wonder if the writer ever played games. Paperboy, GnG, Joust these were back in the day classics. As for E.T., (runs for cover)
I think they put a list of a few hundred games on a wall and threw 10 darts to get this pathetic list...
Great list, except its too bad Halo 2 and 3 didn't make it.
haha, no but for reals, where's Lair.
this list is funny as hell.
1. Ghost n Goblins that game is awesome that he can't play it for sh!t is a different thing, and yes it is considered one of the most difficult games of all time and hell that is why that game is good 2. Fatal Fury is my second one, first because i found that game fighting style a lot more fun then Street fighter which is more simple. And i love 2d fighting games they r the best and i can name at least 5 worst fighting games then fatal fury and the first one was not the best but it wasn't that bad.
Those were two I completely disagreed with as well. I also feel that Paperboy doesn't belong on this list.
I agree with both of you. GnG, Paperboy and fatal fury were good games.
MGS4 should be on the list of best game this generation.
are you insane?
seems pretty sane to me.
Shaq Fu was fun. Lol it was my stupid fun NES title.
Fun maybe. Bad game definitely.
man, if i had my genesis I'd still be playing shaq fu
Haven't even read it and I bet ET is no. 1
i haven't read it either. and if ET isn't number one. the list is complete fail.
Paper boy is only on the list because it was hard as sh1t to beat once you got past a certain level. Edit: BigSwede agreed.
Paperboy should be nowhere near this list.
Wow. Old Wizard never ceases to amaze me. This list is crap. I disagree with every game except E.T. (that game was horrible) and possibly Shaq-Fu (it was bad but I don't know about top 10 bad). Where the hell is Bubsy 3D (PSX), or White Men Can't Jump (Jaguar), or Captain Novolin (SNES)? These are some examples of AWFUL games. Skate or Die? That game was awesome. In fact, most of the games on their list were between decent and good, in my opinion. Some are downright CLASSICS. And totally, completely broken games aren't on the list? Pshaw. Where is the definitively broken Atari 2600 port of PAC-MAN? Worst port ever, it's pretty much unplayable. Old Wizard don't know what they're talking about.
I feel like ive seen this before...
Terrible list. 10. Not a bad game. 7. Not a bad game. 6. Not a bad game. 4. Not a bad game. 3. Not a bad game. 2. SNES version was worse than Genesis version.
Elevator action? damn.
Where was Pac Man?, Halo 3, KZ2 and LBP? /Joking Joking Joking Joking :) Joust was good, weird but good.
i knew ET would be number one. i loved skate or die. i loved joust. i loved paperboy. those three games are gold jerry gold.
Lot of moderating at n4g
tell me about it. i had three post deleted so far. just for calling out fanboys. and i didn't even say anything nasty. just simply called them fanboys. i guess the word fanboy is a complete no no tonight. jeez it's just a word. fanboy. i'm calling someone a fanboy. that's it. well i guess if this gets deleted we'll know that we can't say fanboy. nobody say fanboy. because fanboy is prohibited tonight. maybe we can say fanboy tomorrow. but no fanboy saying tonight. so if someone is being a fanboy, don't call them a fanboy. we just have to let them be fanboys. but don't call them fanboys. just be quiet and let them be a fanboys. fanboys will be fanboys. so fanboy. ON TOPIC this list has about 3 fails. on it. death to fanboys. fanboys are ruining fanboys. i give the life of this post about 2 minutes. fanboy.
well, at least the list is a little different. Its pretty funny too if you actually read it. although i do REALLY disagree with it.
Joust? Paperboy? ......
Strange, given the site, I was expecting them to pull the Zelda CD games. Maybe they just blocked the memory of those out.
Ghost n' Goblins being on the list proves that the person who came up with this list is just a butthurt crybaby.
Wow, and to think I own Shaq-Fu and played it a lot.
...At least they admit they're little turd-burglar fanboys. Most of oldwizard.com's lists are fails on a grand scale. "most games are stupid, especially the ones made by Sega."? I have a whole list of colorful adjectives to describe the utter failure of a human being that wrote this, but something tells me he just doesn't deserve that much recognition. All I'll say is that it's because of little buttf*cks like the guy who wrote that that kept me from buying an SNES as a kid. I associated asshole kids with Nintendo for years because of little douchers like that.
Joust!?! Ghost and goblins?!?! Paperboy!?!?!?!?! Sorry I loved those as a kid. Especially paperboy. I could get through the entire week. It was hard but so goofy and entertaining. He also failed to mention paperboy was ported to nes from an awesome arcade title. I think this guy doesn't understand arcade style games. God help us if he picks up the original Mario Bros he'll whine then too. Want a bad game? look up dynowarz for nes... wow now that was bad... how about Knight rider NES game? Lol memories.
Joust .... DO NOT tell me i wasted all that time playing that game. :(
shaq fu was fun for what it was and if paper boy was so bad why have all of you spent atleast 20 hrs on it. and fatal fury was tight a streets of rage challenger
fatal fury was pretty fun
nice.....my Gamer Zone comment was deleted. must have been cuz i said DildoZone 2 wasnt on the list.
because there isnt a game called dildo zone 2!!but maybe u miss your penis so much that u think of dildos!!
I thought this list would have a bunch of games I have never heard of before, but a lot of the games I have played and none of them belong on this list. Joust is not a bad game. Ghosts N Goblins = a great classic game. Paper Boy = okay game. Fatal Fury = good game. This guy is a moron.
I actually liked Paperboy games.
That is a cracksmoker's list. Elevator Action, Joust, Paperboy, GnG? Are you serious? I have played many far worse games on multiple platforms. Am I the only one that owned a Colecovision? Colecovision was better than Intellivision and Atari and the best system in the early 1980s. It had great games like Donkey Kong (which came with it), Mouse Trap, Venture, Ladybug, and even unauthorized versons of Qbert and Frogger. But, I bring it up because I would put Smurfs on the list of worst games of all time.
F*cking old wizzard and their retro games, that no one remembers or cares about.. really? you can play PacMan for hours? that guy most be the most boring person ever:)
I'm shocked some of those games made the list but Dragon's Lair didn't.
The game was innovative for its animation, I guess, but the game itself sucked. It's more fun to watch than to play. Why do you think no one ever picked to play it on Starcade?
paperboy? That was like my favorite game when I was a kid, sure it was a b*tch and harder than hell at times but it was super fun. Plus you gotta do all those sweet ramps at the end in the construction area.
