Horrible / Video Game Generations

"I speak no hyperbole when I say that releasing every box with no disk inside would have been less of a mistake."

Whether you're playing on the couch, on the road, or in front of a computer, there's no denying that not everything you play will meet even the most basic of quality control standards. Sometimes, the pain will extend beyond the games themselves to the publishers, the developers, or even the consoles they're played on.

Important Notes:

  1. Merely being offensive in its subject matter is not sufficient. Hard as it is to imagine at times, there is a market for all types of deviancy, no matter how small a niche it is. It has to fail to appeal even to that niche to qualify as this.

  2. A game isn't horrible just because The Angry Video Game Nerd, Spoony, Yahtzee, Angry Joe, JonTron, or any other Caustic Critic reviewed it. Nor is it horrible just because it has a flood of negative reviews on Amazon.com and Metacritic. note  There needs to be independent evidence, such as reputable, professional reviews, to list it. (Though once it is listed, they can provide the detailed review(s).)
