8 Games so Amazingly Awful You Have to Play Them

8. Target Terror

Wii, Arcade

The name Konami used to mean something, but ever since the firing of Hideo Kojima and the cancellation of Silent Hills, Konami has become nothing but a laughing stock for their once substantial fan base. So, it seems fitting they would port this light gun arcade game to the Wii back in 2008. The reception was less than favorable to say the least, with IGN even granting the game a "Worst Visuals" award.

However, Target Terror holds a special place in my heart because it was a game my childhood friends and I played on a ski trip together. In the lodge, we found this game on an old arcade cabinet, and played it together for hours. The reason we loved it so much back then was because of how absolutely silly the game was. The visuals were indeed horrendous, with the backgrounds looking like something off of an 80's computer, and the bad guys you had to shoot were the least intimidating villains you could imagine. We even coined the term "suicide flasher" as one of the bad guys would rip open his overcoat to expose a suicide bomb.

Take it from me, this is a game you will love playing with your friends drunk for the outlandish humor alone.
