I can tell the worst game ever. Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing back in 2003. It scored 1/10 on Gamespot and 8 out of 100 on Metacritic.

My worst video game that I've played was a skateboarding game for the dreamcast.
Speaking of dreamcast, that was a long time ago. :)

What, don't you get it?  If the arcade machine is broke, you can't play it, so therefore it basically sucked because it was unusable.

You've experienced a broken arcade machine?
This Lemmings forum is simply *fabulous*!

Actually, yes.  Though I seem to recall it actually being a pinball machine, but a broken arcade machine is just the same, I guess...  Or maybe it was just off, I forget.  It was mainly just a random idea that popped into my head for this discussion.

The worst game I've ever played is Action 52, for the NES. Never played it on the NES though, only in emulators.

Here's a review, which you MUST see to realize how bad this game is :P

People who love WoW seem to hate it when someone doesn't care, but then they don't care about what someone else is saying.

That's because they are truly addicted, and they have nothing else to talk about. I like World of Warcraft, but I have many other interests I have not abandoned, one of which is Lemmings. :D

My least favourite game of all time is Back to the Future III for the Master System. You can beat the game, upload it onto YouTube in one video, and still have time for a rickroll. And then beat the game again.
SEGA Master System version
100% on 110/120 levels (92%). Other levels [Lemmings lost]:
Fun 03 [3], 06 [2], 18 [5]   
Taxing 19 [5], 27 [1], 28 [3]
Tricky 15 [5], 17 [2]
Mayhem 19 [7], 26 [10]

Hey, at least I've stopped hearing people talk about it every five seconds.  Now how to deal with those WoW adds that try and make it difficult to AdBlock?  Stupid flash player ads.

I was compiling a list of "100 NES games worse than Deadly Towers". Because Deadly Towers isn't terrible, never mind that some people think it's the worst game ever made on any system ever.

The answer is Pachi-Com, an NES game released in Japan. You hold down a button. Balls go into a machine (pachinko) and your score points if they go somewhere. That's it. That is the whole game. You hold down a button.

Action 52 is terrible too but at least you can laugh at it. Same with Big Rigs. Pachi-Com is just horrifying.

Although I've rarely played any games that are really bad.

But I must tell you. The game on the Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire DVD, I got really angry on when the timing is off.

And the Yoshi's Story game also I thought was pointless.

And I should agree that although I have never heard of this one, the Bebes Kids Game was really bad. And somehow, it smells bad like the movie. I haven't seen it.

The game ODT never got much good reviews, I admit I kind of like ODT which stands for (escape Or die Trying) The game itself seemed not bad as you can pick from a selection of four characters. I remember one of the characters had a bird on his shoulder.

Not that I'm disputing the assessment (and apologies for bringing up super-old topic but hey grams88 started it :P), but I think some context is in order.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachinko

It sounds like pachi-com is basically a Pachinko machine simulator.  And Pachinko seems kinda like a Japanese analog to casino slot machines.  So I think pachi-com is not all that much different from playing a casino mobile app/video game that includes slot machines as one of the games, ignoring the fact that you don't actually win or lose any money on NES.

The way I see it, this is about as bad as a slot machine video game.  I don't think that excuses its terribleness but the context does help explain why the game would exist in the first place.

Not sure if it's the worst, but Sonic: labyrinth is definitely up there.
