    Default Games So Bad...You Just Can't Finish Them...

    So..I recently attempted to play through Dark Castle on my Genesis in order to write up a review on my blog...needless to say after 5 minutes of playing the game....its all the time I needed to write up my review. This game is so terrible, I will never ever burden my Genesis again with its presence. Then I thought of other games so terrible I couldn't finish...So I was wondering...what games were so bad you guys couldn't finish?

    Also if your curious about Dark Castle - click the link to my blog in my sig below

    Taboo the sixth sense on NES
    So bad, Rare should have been thrown in the dungeon for writing such a turd.

    Don't let Edmond Dantes catch you dissing Taboo!

    Seriously though, what can you expect? It is a game based on tarot cards. It did what it set out to do.

    King Arhtur and the Knights of Justice for the SNES. It was painful. The only game I ever sold back to a game store.
    When I come home from a long day in Hell, there's nothing I'd rather reach for than a fire-brewed bottle of Styx Beer. Made from the filthiest waters from our own River Styx. Styx Beer is a third more toxic than any other regular beer. The worst beer - the filthiest beer - the deadliest beer. It's Styx Beer!

    I love awful games, I really do.

    I maintain that Supreme Warrior on the Mega CD is acutally impossible to complete (of course, I fully expect 17 people to chime in that they have done just that! Probably sold their souls to the devil or something.) Urban Runner, another dodgy FMV game, was particularly difficult simply because it was so horribly bad.

    Also, nice subtle bit of advertising for the blog!

    Batman Returns on the Genesis. Unbelievable that a game that looked as good as it did for it's day was so crappy. I got so sick of trying to find the grappling points that I only put it in when one of my kids or nephews wants to play.

    I finished the Gamecube version of DT in 3 nights. The cutscenes were all that kept me invested. The storyline is first rate, but who the hell thought the camera angles were acceptable?

    I would advise any bat fan who is interested in playing it to just watch the cutscenes on youtube.

    Not really retro, but the original Magna Carta: Tears of Blood killed me. I pushed and pushed to try and finish that game, even using a gameshark thinking it would make it more bearable. Nothing saved me, to this day it the only RPG I've played that I've yet to finish. :'(

    Toxic Crusaders for the Genesis is the only one I can think of at the moment. What an amazingly broken ass game that was, some of the worst hit detection of any game I had played at the time.

    Rocket Ranger on NES.

    Also, Tama on PS1/SS for being so boring.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    Lure of the Temptress on the PC. Usually I finish adventure games once I start them but this was so bad I got rid of it well before I finished it. The people you need to talk to are able to wander around town on their own so you always have to search for them, this can get annoying after awhile as the game has a circular path and you can keep missing them as they make their way around town and can enter any number of buildings along the way.

    Oh man, I played Myst first on my Sega Saturn back in the day and I still love that entire series - I guess it's just really a niche game. But really? You didn't like TMNT 1? Come on man, disarming under water bombs is classic!
