So pleased to see C64 Hard Drivin do that well in the first round, comfortably easing into round two without any fuss, a bit like West Germany in the 70s and 80s :D

Quite right... Can't read proper and missed the six for some stupid reason. Carry on and I'll go back to lurking :oops:

Dragon's Lair??? Shouldn't even be in this competition, spew, vitriol, rant etc.

Just my opinion, of course.

I agree that it shouldn't be in there. This is supposed to be worst game, not worst weakly interactive movie. :lol:

I voted for Crap-Fu. Terrible on any system but the MD version really takes the biscuit!

Could be worse, Knight Lore appeairng on a 'worst game' (or worse game !) list, just utterly ridiculous

I've actually got a soft spot for Laserdisc games, I'm not sure why. But then, I also have a soft spot for certain terrible retro-games, like Pit Fighter.

In fact, where IS Pit Fighter?? :-)

I think you're all being way too hard on Shaq Fu. In terms of idiotic concepts it's probably right up there with the worst, and it deserved the backlash it got to that extent. However, as a game it's only really a mediocre one; compared to some of the downright broken ones elsewhere in the list it really doesn't seem that bad at all.

If you want to see a truly awful beat 'em up, try Human Killing Machine on the Atari ST or Oriental Hero on the Spectrum.
