* On the same vein as above, the translation of the game ''VideoGame/BlazingStar'' that has become the TropeNamer for EpicFail with this gem:
-->''YOU FAIL IT! YOUR SKILL IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, SEE YOU NEXT TIME, BYE-BYE!''

* Videogame/UmbrellaCorps seems to be a [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] portrayal of contemporary Resident Evil games, where the "action" is more emphasized over the "horror" elements, a team based versus third person shooter plus hack and slash with zombies as "natural hazards". It has miniaturized versions of familiar places in the Resident Evil series, gratuitously hilarious gore, and very small team of 2v2 combat. It has a single player horde mode called "The Experiment" with hilariously bad excuse of a plot. And all of this runs on Unity Engine, an engine mostly reserved for mobile games and indie games, causing issues such as mouse acceleration and stuttering on the PC version. This game is released just before Resident Evil 7 is announced with return to full on survival horror. Predictably it receives middling to low reviews, but somehow [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Japan likes this game]], what with Famitsu gave it 36/40 (9 on 4 reviewers).

* ''VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution'' came out in 2013, and swiftly became a contender for the title of Best-Worst Game Ever. Set in the 70's in a [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield town somewhere in Californiarizonevada]], this attempt at a gritty Grindhouse-style biker drama is [[ObviousBeta riddled with bugs]] (of both the [[GoodBadBugs Good-Bad]] and [[GameBreakingBug Game-Breaker]] variety), terrible voice acting, a plot that rides between the handlebars of "nonsense" and "gonzo", terrible graphics and horrible controls. It soon became [[SignatureScene memorable]] for things such as its fully-clothed, stiffly-animated sex scenes complete with stereotypical porn music and a mission involving the main character committing what many would consider an ''act of terrorism'' [[ComplexityAddiction in a ridiculously complex scheme to turn off the power to an electric fence.]] Due in no small part to the amusingly naked ineptitude on display, it quickly got a reputation as the "''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace''" of video games".

* From ''Kinect StarWars'': "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_xJqkzngBI I'm Han Solo.]]" It's about as hilariously bad as you'd expect a cheesy pop song about ''Star Wars'' could get. But it isn't the game's silliest moment: your character dances their way to the peak of the Empire, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXp8T097vjc for the final dance-offs against Darth Vader and then Emperor Palpatine on the Death Star.]] It couldn't get better/worse than that.

** The best/worst part? CAPCOM's internal development team is responsible for the game.

* The ''VideoGame/EuropaUniversalis'' GameMod known as "Steppe Wolf". It is a mod that extends the timeline from 0 AD to 2009 AD, almost all of the Common Era. However, [[GameBreakingBug it's extremely broken]]. Most of Central Europe starts not knowing where it is. This means that playing as Switzerland, you cannot click any of your provinces for several years, Colonial rebels are modded to be valid anywhere. This leads to situations like Quebec declaring independence from Russia (and the Soviet Union from declaring independence from Quebec), most of California is an American colony, with San Francisco having a population of 205 people in 1981, along with other glitches, not to mention that it crashes every 10 years in game time. But because of these bugs (or despite them?), ''EU'' fans think it mind-bogglingly amusing to behold just how broken it is.

* ''Film/HomeAlone2'' for the SNES counts as SoBadItsGood, despite it's a [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames video game based on a movie]]. It has an [[EverythingIsTryingToKillYou absurd cast of enemies]], decent graphics, and weird sound effects.
