These are the games that made us throw controllers, start fights with siblings and wish certain doom to game developers.
REASONS: Too difficult, boring, laggy/buggy, didn't meet expectations, etc...
This weeks' WORST VIDEO GAME EVER is:
(IT'S A TIE...WE HAVE TWO GAMES THIS WEEK)
Ecco the Dolphin (Sega) – (RELEASED: 1992)
I don't mean to hate on dolphin lovers. I too have an affinity for the bottlenosed little guys.
However, this game was just...was...there just aren't any words to accurately describe the amount of crap it was.
The main character, Ecco is a dolphin who travels through time and hangs out on alien spacecrafts.
Your main powers throughout the game? Singing
That's right: Singing.
I could elaborate more on the amount of frustration and lameness of this game, but I've thankfully forgotten much of the game from my youth.
Myst (Mac OC/PC) – (RELEASED: 1993)
Okay...so this game WAS A LITTLE BIT COOL. Detailed graphics for it's time, ominous music and intriguing puzzles. It was kind of the "Lost" before J.J Abrams' "Lost" (Except no Lily, Sawyer or Jack)
BUT IT WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS THE MOST BORING GAME IN ALL OF EXISTENCE.
Did anyone actually beat this game? It wasn't scary, it wasn't action packed and the puzzles were hard as hell (Disclaimer: I was around 9 or 10 when the game came out, which might explain my ineptitude).
I might have to revisit the game and see if it still holds up...OR NOT....
Please comment/post and let us know what you think is the WORST VIDEO GAME OF ALL TIME
