    Pac-Man and E.T. for the 2600 isn't even in contention. Like had been said, they can actually be enjoyed and the VCS has far worse choices that those.

    My personal selection would probably Anubis II for the Wii.

    Yeah, but those two certainly could be the worst games a person owns.

    I never understand why so many people defend E.T..
    Sure its a 'playable' game and there might be worse games on the 2600, but in my opinion E.T. is really bad.
    E.T. is just super boring.

    You should try Video Chess on the VCS. The computer can take several minutes just to make a move.

    That's not bad, that's realism!

    Several minutes? On the hardest difficulty setting, try up to 20+ hours!

    Given what meager hardware resource it had to work with, though, it plays a surprisingly respectable game. Nothing amazing, and the Intellivision game USCF Chess is considerably more polished, but Atari Video Chess never cheated or crashed on me (unlike USCF Chess, which has a reproducible bug where it simply refuses to move).

    My father was into VCS Chess.

    I preferred playing Tank Pong.

    They don't have much of a VCS collection if they are. I'd much rather play these than quite a few other games.

    I think Aero-Guage for N64 is the worst I own. I don't particularly dislike it, though.

    I haven't played it too much. I just remember having to leave the room for a considerable amount of time, when the computer seemed to have froze up in deep thought; It may very well have been over 20 minutes. It was way too long of a wait for me to get any enjoyment out of it.

    The first game that comes to mind is Pac-Land for the TurboGrafx-16. What were they thinking when they made this. The controls were not good. I remember playing with a friend and being stuck trying to jump over a pool forever it feels. Though time stands still when you play this game so it's hard to say. I'm fairly certain Pac-Land stole a bit of my soul that day.

    You can change the controls to a traditional scheme in the options and it becomes downright playable. Maybe even kinda fun.

    was pacland the isometric one where you couldn't see much of the maze and you could jump over the ghosts?
    I remember there being a lot of legos in it too.

    that could be a hallucination because it was a game that was usually rented for me when I was sick.
    man I still remember the hallucinations when I was sick while I was a kid oh 20+ years ago and it really freaking me out, some of it just makes me have the feels about who knows what, they still baffle me

    You're thinking of pac-mania that had a isometric view.Pac-Land was a 2D platformer which was originally a arcade game,ported to the TG16.

    Maybe I'll have to give it another try. I vividly remember not enjoying it.

    I own a bad port of a pretty decent game (Revolution X, ported from the Arcade to the PC), but the worst original game that I've owned is one of the first games I ever got: Mickey Mousecapade for the NES. Not a horrible game, but it definitely has serious flaws.

    I also own Duke Nukem Forever for the PC. Again, not a bad game, but it is disappointing. It could have been so much better if it didn't aspire to be a COD clone (Linear level design, regenerating health, etc.).

    Not even sure if it's crappy but it's a weird one. Farming Simulator 14 for 3ds somehow made it into my archives. Never bothered to give it a crack. Never bothered trading it in either, as it would probably be worth a quarter.

    Then how do you know it's bad? The reviews are fairly favorable and I recall the Steam version being popular streaming material.
