Can I vote for Dragon's Lair (Arcade)

Image

It was a ground breaking arcade machine.
It looks amazing.
It sounds amazing.
It made $32m in it's first 8 months.
It cost 50p a go (which equates to 50p per 30secs)
And it was a bloody nightmare to play.

Am I allowed to vote for 2 games as I hate them both equally. I know I'm going to get flamed for this but I'd have to say Golden Eye on the N64. This game was hyped and worshipped and when I played it I was seriously underwhelmed. The fogging was bad, the colours were garrish, it was based on Peirce that tw@t from Mrs Doubtfire Brosnon and for me extremly boring as far as 1st person shooters go.

My 2nd choice would be pacman on the Atari 2600, probably the 2nd worse game on that console having just been overtaken by ET. It's so bad that the clone that you can play at the starting bar in Prey for the Xbox 360 is much better! :shock:

The rule is one nomination per person. And Pac-Man on the 2600 has been picked already..

The chances of Golden Eye being included are zero, I expect.

If he nominates it, it's in.

As for Goldeneye... I guess it depends on whether Demonblaze made a case for it actually being a really bad game, or just one he didn't like as much as everyone else. What do you think Craig?
Craig wrote: A couple of things to bear in mind: 1) the list should stick to games that were commercially released; 2) the games shouldn't just be stuff you didn't like all that much, but ones that are so staggeringly bad that they make you think sticking forks in your eyeballs would be preferable to playing them.

Back in the day, I used to bloody hate Ecco the bloody Dolphin. That really was a godawful game.

I don't know if I'm just a 'Tendo fanboy or what, but an awful lot of stuff on the Mega Drive/Genesis seemed to be godawful... perhaps I was just unlucky and picked all the crap stuff.

The idea for the thread was to produce a list of turkeys, not games that were a bit of a disappointment. Even if someone didn't like Goldeneye that much, it'd be bloody hard to make a case for it being utterly utterly rubbish.

I think I'm gonna go with Transformers on the Speccy - simply because it should have been a dream license:

Giant robots that turn into vehicles, war machines and, erm, cassette recorders, wreaking carnage on planet Earth?
A massive, already established, fanbase gripped in a merchandise frenzy?
How could it go wrong, even taking into consideration the limitations of the 8-bit age?

Instead we got a load of wimpy little stick men, who, for some reason, had decided galactic domination was achievable via mincing around on a load of ramps.
A disappointment in every way as far as I was concerned...

I have to agree with Bridge It on the CPC, awful!

But SuperGran is THE worst ever.
