8 Games so Amazingly Awful You Have to Play Them

1 of 9

Terrible video games are nothing new. In fact, they were in large part the reason why the gaming market crashed in 1983. Every popular video game console throughout the market's history, whether it was the Nintendo Entertainment System or the modern day Steam market, became a testing ground for developers to experiment with what worked and what didn't. Sometimes, things worked out extremely well, and a genre-defining franchise was born. Other times, you get a title credited for helping bring down an entire industry, such as E.T on the Atari 2600. 

However, since the crash and re-ignition of the video game market, E.T has become so notorious for its lackluster design and rushed development that it's become a sought-after collectible for many players. When a title becomes "so bad, it's good," all those flaws and frustrations that once irritated people to no end are eventually seen as hilarious gems. 

With as many shovel-ware titles that appeared on systems such as the Wii and the Xbox 360, it's only a matter of time before they too become sought after by hardcore gamers. So, let's explore some recent titles that were so terribly created and rushed to market, that you just might have no choice but to play them in the foreseeable future.
