Horrible / Video Games

Go To

"This is like human misery in video game form."

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 Horrible.Video Game 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.

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, Rerez or any other Caustic Critic reviewed it. Nor is it horrible just because it was review bombed on Steam, Amazon, and/or Metacritic.note  There needs to be independent evidence, such as reputable, professional reviews, to list it. Though once it is listed, the Caustic Critics can provide the detailed review(s).
  3. Also, a game isn't Horrible just because it's a poorly-made licensed tie-in or a bad port. However, if it's a terrible game on its own or a particularly horrendous port, then it can be listed here.
  4. To ensure that the work is judged with a clear mind and the hatred isn't just a knee-jerk reaction, as well as to allow opinions to properly form and allow the developers to patch out any glaring issues, examples should not be added until at least one month after release. This includes "sneaking" the entries onto the pages ahead of time by adding them and then just commenting them out.
