I found the absolute worst Pokemon Romhack ever. I didn't think any hack released could be this bad.

Commonly labeled worst Pokemon Hacks, such as Touhoumon Insane (a possible so bad its horrible, since its kind of plagarized, and LP'd by troper Caper Nerd), Quartz, Uranium (softlocking issues), any Dark Rising game, I can at least call them hacks.

This hack looks like it could not make it past the alpha stage. There is a pokemon romhack called "Pokemon Ultra," that is completely broken.

The tilesets are clustered up, including movement permissions, and it is impossible to clear the game without Walk Through Walls, multiple times. The warps lead to completely random places, especially when trying to go back, and it leads to a different location entirely, (If you are level ten, there is a warp that leads to an rival ambush that is ten levels higher, yet its the unedited cerulean rival fight) There are some unimaginably nonsensical changes to certain moves; Recover for example, is an attack that does 255 base damage with 50 accuracy, and there are similar moves like that, like smokescreen. And some trainer sprites are vomit inducing and even have backround errors. This includes some very hideous fakemon sprites replacing the starters. And the boss fights, apart from the moves, aren't even edited.

There are also a ton of text errors, and I don't mean just grammer, mispellings, capitalizations. Lots of out of the box sentences, and garbled text. And there is a change in plot... and it is incomprehensible thanks to the text issues.

I'm not making this up. I could put up a link to the nuzlocke forums playing through this hack, just to show to screenshots. It has to be seen to be believed, its so transfixing at how busted this is... http://s7.zetaboards.com/Nuzlocke_Forum/topic/8821058/1/

Question is, where do I put "Pokemon Ultra"? Game mods or fangames?

Is it safe to say that Cryo Interactive counts as a horrible developer, or does the fact that they made a 1992 game based on Dune that was the Trope Codifier for real time strategy games exempt them, even though seemingly every other game they made was a poorly received cash-in on a license?

Should the Atari 5200 be added to this page or not?

I don't think the ouya should be on here" it's not a GOOD by any means, but if nothing else I've heard of people getting use out of it with Kodi and emulators.

Should we add Kill Tweety on this list?

Hi there. I want to tone down and refine some words on the page, please. This time, I'll talk about it. I want to change some of the wording, and tone down on some of them as well, please.

If you want to tone some entries down, I don't have an objection to that. Some of the words you replaced the first time were a bit complain-y in tone.

What can we do about it? I understand it was complaining in tone, but I wasn't the least bit butthurt at all. I was genuinely calm, and no I am not just snarking. I am sincere and I don't want to sound intentionally rude and snide about it and waste me time with that.

"Overpowered" in video game terms is widely used to describe elements that are unfairly powerful. It's clear in its meaning and I'm not sure why you think that word needs to be changed. "Overpowering" isn't really used in the same way, and just looks weird here. Nobody says, "Man, that attack is so overpowering!"

Also you didn't actually specify the changes you wanted to make before going ahead and doing them again anyway.

Proposing the Ouya. It was a monumental failure that failed to deliver on many of its promises, had a terrible and overpriced controller, had an awful game library plagued with mountains of shovelware, had an atrocious marketing campaign (as seen on the Advertising page of So Bad, It's Horrible), and was quickly forgotten about soon after its release. All of this happened despite the creators of the system raising $8 million on Kickstarter.

I figured Jim Sterling's opinion about Digital Homicide being the worst game developer would be a decent page quote. Any other suggestions?

Related to Blast Entertainment's entry, can we add Tennings' two-part review that covered six of their games on this list? (I'd be willing to single out of those six, Home Alone and Thunderbirds could be the two biggest offenders.)

Cutting the MDickie entry unless anyone has any objections. It wasn't terribly detailed in the first place, which was one strike against it, but then someone added in some of the games he had worked on while in the same edit saying that some people don't find them that bad (or think they're So Bad, It's Good). Again, it has to fail to appeal to any niche at all to qualify for this page, and enjoying the games ironically for their unintentional comedy factor still counts.

I feel that the "Phoenix Games" entry should be changed to "The Code Monkeys" because they where the ones who developed those games to begin with. Phoenix Games published their titles for the PS2, and Midas published their games for the PS 1. Just pointing that out.

Should PETA's infamous ripoffs of Pokémon (Pokémon Black and Blue and Pokémon Red, White, and Blue) count? Based on Critical Research Failure and being very lazily done, I think they should be here.
01:53:05 AM Aug 15th 2014
Hrmm ... do they end up without any fandom or support? If so, they'd count.
06:44:40 AM Aug 15th 2014
Pretty much yes. On that note, their Mario ripoff and anything else they make counts too.

The Mario ripoff I mean is the one about the Tanooki Suit, though I suppose Super Chick Sisters can go here too.

No, they should not. The definition for SBIH says that no matter how unappealing the game is outside its audience, it must fail to appeal to that audience to be on this page. As hated as they are by the PETA hatedom, I haven't seen any criticism of the games from PETA supporters.

You know, I strongly disagree with Grezzo 2. It is a mod that was created mainly for the Italian community, since it features many characters that are well known (or more commonly, notorious) in Italy. It wasn't even meant to get known abroad, but it incidentally did, and now us Italians gladly see it for what it is, while gamers from other countries just go full hater on it because they don't get the point.
