    To be fair, a lot of bad games are fun while drinking. Here's a couple. . .

    Caveman Games - NES
    Custer's Revenge - Atari 2600
    Mr. Mosquito (bicycle mini game) - PS2
    Eye Toy - PS3

    The game is infinitely better than the movie it's based on. I don't know if you ever watched it or not, but it's really bad. One of the many lessons it tries to teach kids is that it's ok to ignore rules you don't like or agree with because they weren't fair rules anyway. What makes them not fair? Apparently if you don't like them, it means they weren't fair. That's it.

    Link: The Faces of Evil - CD-i

    Even though I had played every Zelda game prior and have played every one since I still liked this steaming pile of dog doo. Can't explain why it's just got a certain kind of craptacular charm.

    ^I enjoyed Link: Faces of Evil. It's janky and frustrating but also quite forgiving, and the fact that I was able to beat it with an infrared controller (!) indicates that it's a lot more playable than people claim it is. Some of the backgrounds are quite lovely to look at.

    So, I haven't played much of this one but I took a taste of Strider Returns: Journey From Darkness and wondering already, is this game as bad as people say it is?

    Most of the ones I like that are more low rated are on more recent consoles, like Fragile Dreams on Wii, Monster Rancher 3 on PS2, or Digimon World 4 on Gamecube.

    The only older game I can really think of liking that isn't highly rated was honestly also Link: Faces of Evil. I played it recently with a friend, and honestly? We had a blast. The controls were clunky, the game is damn weird, and it plays like an adventure game more than a Zelda, but once you know what's going on, it's actually quite fun. I'm sure it does help that I'm a big Zelda fan, though. All I know is, I expected to hate it but ended up beating it. I also will probably end up beating the second game at some point.

    Edit: I just realized I've also been a fan of the licensed Beyblade games, mostly just due to nostalgia from growing up with the series as a kid. The ones I've played most were the two on GBA and the GC game. I guess the GBA games might count here? Ones a decent isometric maze collectathon game that's actually pretty great. The other is a bad JRPG, lol.

    Oh, man, that makes me think of the Beyblade game I recently beat on PlayStation. It was terrible, but at least it was entertaining.

    The announcer was so amazingiy mush-mouthed and incongruous! "What a weak launch! Well! Well! Well! (pause) Well! Unbelievable! What's happening here?! Wow! Wow! Wow!"

    Haha. I briefly had the PS1 game as a kid, but didn't understand it so ended up getting rid of it. I do believe they use some of that same announcer in the Gamecube game, though. And it's just about as weird there, too. Gotta pick that one back up at some point... since I'm getting a bit of a collection going (will probably end up with all the Beyblade games eventually lol).

    I'm a 3DO fan so most of the games I enjoy on there aren't considered good, save a few obvious key titles.

    I like Seicross on NES.
    Romance of the 3 kingdoms 2 on any platform (SNES being the one I owned and played the most)
    Destiny of an Emperor on NES
    <---- Mighty Bomb Jack

    .... come to think of it, it's not so much that these games are considered bad rather they get 0 recognition as good titles.

    I was about to say, "Aren't Destiny of an Emperor and Romance of the Three Kingdoms II considered good games?" I could see the latter being seen as inferior to the later installments (I don't remember III and I never played IV at all, but I recall after that the series got so complicated it was unplayable)

    Also I just found out that apparently reviewers used to hate the Splatterhouse games. What the hell?
