* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's LP of ''Bart's Nightmare'' isn't ''good'', but has some character moments in there and a lot of people think it isn't worth Doug constantly apologizing for it.

Added DiffLines:

* The remake of ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' got savaged by a lot of fans and critics alike. Richard Corliss of ''TIME'' magazine noted that a lot of the bad reviews came from critics who had nostalgia for the original. Some feel that it's a decent popcorn action flick when it's not being compared to its original.
* The ''{{Literature/Divergent}}'' films are usually on many critics' 'Worst of X Year' lists, and "still better than ''Divergent''" is often used to describe other movies based off YA books. Some understandably don't find the movies to be ''that'' bad. Even WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick said that while she didn't like it, she thought it was significantly better than other YA movies.

Added DiffLines:

* Due to its extreme longevity, ''Series/DoctorWho'' has entire ''eras'' that suffer from being critically maligned. This also applies to fan opinion, however it is quite common for stories and eras previously negatively viewed to receive positive reappraisal thanks to the passage of time. The Sixth and Seventh Doctor eras are rife with examples, as is the Second Doctor era, the latter due mostly to more stories from Patrick Troughton's time being recovered.

* ''Aaru's Awakening'' is considered by gamefaqs to be [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/mac/129192-aarus-awakening the worst game ever made]]. The sheer fact that it has an actual and consistent art style and storyline would however place it above many SoBadItsHorrible works. On Metacritic you can see [[http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/aarus-awakening the hatred]] in full-swing. While critics were polarized by it its considered LoveItOrHateIt , with most of them citing that it has a good art-style, but that there are issues with the controls and gameplay, but metacritic users still decided that it was worth spamming floods of negative reviews to.

* The UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} version of ''VideoGame/{{Pac-Man}}'' and ''VideoGame/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' are frequently called "the worst games ever" by critics. Granted, ''Pac-Man'' suffered from being a PortingDisaster and ''E.T.'' has some [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames issues of its own]], but they're not as bad as critics might think, compared to other games released on that system at the time these two games were released. In particular, the urban myth that ''E.T.'' was the worst game ever even drove Digitalpress insane. To the point that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzdqaJIeE0Q they]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PR50m78IIJs showcased]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwoUt-AGW3c 10]] DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible Atari 2600 games that, according to the people that viewed it, made ''E.T.'' look like ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}'' has received [[{{Understatement}} VERY negative]] reception from [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter certain YouTube critics]] and older Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} fans, many calling it the worst show to have ever existed. That said, professional critics gave it SoOkayItsAverage reviews, and it does have a small fan following who believe it's not ''that'' bad.

* ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', [[Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike even]] [[EditWar in]] ThisVeryWiki. When ''Avatar'' [[ItsPopularNowItSucks got extremely popular]], the HypeBacklash was so bad, many critics began to dissect it and complain about even the slightest of its flaws, to the point where even that backlash and all its criticisms were considered overblown.
