What are the worst games of all time?
We're not just talking bad, these are bad among the bad. The worst of the worst.
It can't just be bad in your opinion, either; it has to be considered bad by the general gaming community.
How many of them are there? And which one is the very worst of all?
In my search for the worst of the worst, these games tend to show up as the most well-known awful games:
Untitled
Quoting from Wikipedia,
"E.T. is frequently cited as a contributing factor to Atari's massive financial losses during 1983 and 1984. It is speculated that as a result of overproduction and returns, millions of unsold cartridges were buried in an Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill. The game's commercial failure and resulting effects on Atari are frequently cited as a contributing factor to the video game industry crash of 1983."
If it almost single-handedly brought about the video game industry crash, it must be bad.
Untitled
I read somewhere that there is an organization dedicated to the destruction of each and every one of the cartridges of this game. 'Nuff said.
Untitled
Full of glitches, flying through rings, important messages that only flash on the screen for a few seconds... it's just about as close to unplayable as you can get. Oh, and it also had a notably terrible ending. If there isn't an organization dedicated to this game's destruction, there should be.
Untitled
This game was just boring. The Mr. Hyde sections are decent; but long sections of moseying along as Dr. Jekyll, watching out for guys with bombs, cats, and bird poo, is just intolerable. And sometimes there are no hazards, and it's just slowly walking down the road!

What other awful games are there out there?

Well,
Sonic 06 and Duke Nukem Forever aren't as bad as those, but for modern day games coming from notable developers their existence is one of mockery.

...And Wii Party. I don't care if I'm the only one who hated that, but I HATED it. Like, the only game I've ever truly hated.

Also: Metroid: Other M is banned from being eligible due to it being a good game.

By Metroid standards, the game was horribe.

Also, the CDi Zeldas. These will always hold a special hatred in my heart, as they basically just made a mockery of my favorite series.

I agree Metroid Other M wasn't a bad game. Its actually one of my favorite Wii game. But the controls could have been better as well.

Of all the games I've played personally, Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis easily takes the cake. It was a gag gift toward my brother, and we played it together. It was an absolutely atrocious mess.

Worst game I've played was Superman Returns for the PS2. Are all Super Man games made by the same people? Is there a Curse of the franchise? Or are they purposely all just making them damn near unplayable? Because seriously, I've never been more frustrated than trying to play that game. It was bland, boring, the hit detection was bad, the missions were obscure, and the second level I swear was pretty much impossible to beat. It was utter trash. I only got it because K-Mart bundled it with KoFXI, which was one of my favorite games for a while.

Where has there been any voice acting in metroid before to set that standered?

I'm gonna try again.
