* ''[=NeonFM=]'' has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxMva7Ex2_k "Girlz Buttz"]] by Thomas Howard and DJ Potatoe, a song about spending one's daily routine [[MaleGaze looking at]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin girls' butts]]. It would later be ported to ''VideoGame/PumpItUp Infinity'', much to the ire and masochistic joy of rhythm game fans.

** ''[[VideoGame/SonicBoom Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric]]'', by virtue of being an ObviousBeta [[ChristmasRushed rushed out for Christmas]]. It's plagued with [[LolDistruction frequent and enthusiastic voice acting every ten seconds]], hilariously abrupt [[UnexpectedGameplayChange Unexpected Gameplay Changes]], characters that are thrown into the air blubbering to explode into rings if they step into [[SuperDrowningSkills more than a foot of water]], a villain that looks like a sperm, and more glitches than you'll know what to do with. Knuckles has the [[GoodBadBug best glitch ever]], the ability to jump infinitely in mid-air, allowing for some epic [[SequenceBreaking sequence breaks]], speed runs, and basically the ability to break the game wide open for fun and profit. Unfortunately a patch has "fixed" (note the quotations) these bugs (particularly the jump glitch), debatably landing this game [[ILikedItBetterWhenItSucked under another trope]]. It was fun while it lasted, at least.

** A hilariously bad [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAtC1SzWSXg English dub]], which is the result of a CEO [[{{Nepotism}} hiring his family members to do the dubbing job]]. It has attracted the game lots of attention and is always good for a laugh. The voice acting makes everyone sound like they're stoned. Note that the CEO knew his company couldn't afford a decent localization, but Sony mandated an English translation. The game was obscure enough he knew he could get away with it too (anyone who wanted this game would switch to Japanese immediately, anyway).

** This is taken to its intentional extreme in ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDeadOverkill'', putting everything into a [[ExploitationFilm [=Grindhouse=]]] style and taking the Narm to its [[NarmCharm extreme]] to make it So Bad It's CrazyAwesome. Perhaps most notably: ''the game achieved a Guinness World Record for [[ClusterFBomb the most usages of the F-word in a video game]]!''

* "AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs". A [[TranslationTrainWreck horrible]] translation from a Japanese game (''VideoGame/ZeroWing'') into English that was so bad [[MemeticMutation it became a massive internet meme]]. Especially amazing since [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icVy7Ve6y6A that was the only cutscene]] in the ''entire game'', and those practically set records for bad translation in the late 1980s ''anyway''. The game itself is actually quite good, though.

* ''PokemonQuartz,'' a hilariously awful hack of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Ruby]]'' with [[UncannyValley ugly to terrifying]] fake Pokemon, [[ClusterFBomb gratuitous swearing]], [[BlindIdiotTranslation bizarre dialogue]], a nonsensical plot (inflating the sun? To make Electric Pokemon stronger? Using ''a broken ghost detector''?)--and did we mention all the [[AuthorAvatar author insertion]] and the GaryStu professor? It must be seen to be believed--and these [[https://lparchive.org/Pokemon-Quartz/ Let's]] [[http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=202024 Plays]] don't even cover all of it.

** Come to think of it, their insistence on keeping their development costs absurdly low (i.e. little, if at all, effort at promoting their games) confined them into obscurity, so much that the only known mentions of them, besides forums and user-maintained game databases such as Mobygames, are [=GameFAQs=] entries of the games in question. It generally isn't surprising to know that TheOtherWiki would delete the Phoenix Games entry, owing to the aforementioned lack of notability.
