'''''Second Important Note:''''' A game isn't horrible just because WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd, [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]], [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]], or any other CausticCritic [[ReviewsAreTheGospel reviewed it]]. Nor is it horrible just because it has a flood of negative reviews on Amazon.com and Metacritic. [[note]]''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' is a prime example of a perfectly functional game with a ridiculous number of negative Amazon.com reviews - at least 90% of which are nothing more than complaints about the game's DRM system.[[/note]] There needs to be independent evidence, such as professional reviews, to list it. (Though once it is listed, they can provide the detailed review(s).)

** There's also ''Fire Emblem Different Dimensions Ostian Princess'', or FEDDOP, which is what you will be after playing it. The design decisions make hardly any sense, the plot stars Lilina but has so many holes it's hardly there at all, and there's hardly any difficulty at all and, after clearing chapter 13 the game goes right back to chapter 12, causing an infinite loop. It's broken on a completely hilarious level. If you like, you may experience a Let's Play [[http://lparchive.org/Fire-Emblem-Different-Dimensions-Ostian-Princess/ here.]]

** ''VideoGame/EthnicCleansing''. The game's untextured graphics look worse than ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'' (the game was released in 2002), its setup was discredited when ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}'' came out, and its draw distance is ridiculously short. The collision detection is very off, and the AI is only slightly above shooting-gallery level. The one weapon in the game has no recoil, and there's only one non-boss enemy type, which is reskinned three times. There's only two levels, one of which works more or less at the game's mercy, and all politics aside, the "story" is little more than an ExcusePlot that ends on an AWinnerIsYou note. The game crashes often, several functions (including the save system and the control options) do ''nothing'', and the sound is very poorly coded.

** The nadir of the already loathed package is generally considered to be Micro Mike, which is almost unplayable, much less possible to beat its three sparse stages without a tool assisted speedrun, due to its insanely claustrophobic level design and merciless enemy placement, combined with Micro Mike's uncontrollably fast speed.

** The plot of ''Custer's Revenge'' is as follows — General George Armstrong Custer, depicted as a man wearing nothing but a cavalry hat, boots, and a bandanna while sporting [[BiggerIsBetterInBed a visible erection]], must dodge falling arrows and randomly appearing cacti in order to reach the other side of the screen, where he intends to rape a naked, well-endowed Native American woman named "Revenge", who is bound to a post. The only "noteworthy" part of the game (its early use of nudity) is [[FetishRetardant done in by its extremely low resolution and color depth]], and the publishers picked ''this'' game to use the real graphics on the packaging. There's also the UnfortunateImplications of General Custer raping a Native American woman, or that you shouldn't bother with graphics this blocky for this purpose, for a second...note that she's tied to a cactus. Her ass is rubbing against a ''cactus''! As {{Seanbaby}} put it:

** Aside from the DingoPictures collaborations, they were also responsible for ''The Simpsons Skateboarding'', a third-rate knockoff of the ''VideoGame/TonyHawksProSkater'' games with terrible controls and poor level design among other problems. This game also got a bashing by Caddicarus seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ak2ssG56q0 here]].

* Giulio "Glassyman" Galassi created ''Gamarra's Story'', a series of infamously bad maps that were widely reviled, leading him to lash out by creating childish, mean-spirited, homophobic, and incredibly unfunny "joke wads" [[TakeThatCritics mocking his critics]]. It got bad enough that his [[http://www.doomworld.com/14years/others.php Worst Wad Cacoward in 2007]] came with a plea by the reviewer to stop making [=WADs=] altogether. Glassyman was eventually banned from almost the entire ''Doom'' community, and little has been heard of him since.
