Hopefully, someone in the quality-assurance divisions of several game companies got fired over letting these titles slip through the cracks. These probably wouldn't pass muster as coasters or clay pigeons.

Gaming humorists, take note if you want to make a statement about how bad a game is, just say "I'd rather play [insert name of nearly any game from this list here]" for cheap, yet instant, laughs.

For good games that are best played with frequent use of the Mute Button, see the Video Games section of Horrible.Voice Acting, or Horrible.Music for soundtracks. See Porting Disaster for good games that embrace the crappiness as they change platform, though one can be in here if it's a horrible game on its own.

For more information, be sure to visit The Other Wiki.

Important Note: 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.

Second Important Note: A game isn't horrible just because The Angry Video Game Nerd, Spoony, Yahtzee, the Irate Gamer, 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 actual, professional reviews, to list it. (Though once it is listed, they can provide the detailed review(s).)
