All N64 games except Mario 64 - a poor system with a poor controller!

FIFA (any of them - can't believe people buy this)

Tiger Woods (see above)

GOD DAMN YES! Especially Doom and Wolfenstein. I will never, ever, ever, understand the love lavished on this crap. It looked crap and dated when it came out FFS.

Halo was at best O.K. (barely)

And the Zelda games. Just boring. Your mind has to move at glacial speeds to extract even a minuscule drop of pleasure from this blurry visioned hippy fairy loving crap. I have tried, and tried, and tried to like Zelda. I have owned every Zelda game on the N64, the Wii and the CDi. Each time with the intention of learning to love the Zelda series. I've spent upwards of a £150, simply in an attempt to learn to love Zelda, like the rest of you. And I can't do it. Under normal circumstances if the whole world loves something and you don't - well, the problem lies with you -- right? Well it's not me, it's the rest of you. Swear to God. Zelda, like this post, is long winded rubbish. That is all.

Absolute crap !! --- Blast Corps, Pilotwings, Goldeneye and Perfect dark for starters...Mario kart, Diddy Kong Racing.....oh god I could go on and on.....

FIFA (any of them - can't believe people buy this)....the later ones are ok.....


Tiger Woods (see above)...the later ones are good if you like golf.....

Command & Conquor totally agree
I would add all that crap like oblivion and world of warcraft..in fact any rpg....especially ffviiiviiiviii .....ALL Halo games, 3d Motorbike games, Centipede, joust, space invaders is crap. Pong and every breakout game, Lords of Midnight and all hewson avalon games, Every football manager game, every manager game, Most flight sims, all boat and submarine simulators, war games that make you move 2 units at a time, 98% of all text adventures, 99% of all graphic adventures, 99% of all 8-bit isometric games, anything with tycoon at the end is crap, most Ultimate games, most Ultima games - no in fact all of them, dungeon masters, Bubble Bobble, Ghost & Goblins, Uridium, 99% of jeff Minter games and every game with the word "Sim" in the title.

Yes!!! AND! AND!! AND!!! MUDs. Multi User Dungeons. The epitomy of rubbish. Not sure about Puzzle Bobble. That was OK. Final Fantasy is not all bad either.

WTF!?! :shock:

Mind you ... that's as bad as me saying 'I hate Mario!' - well actually, that's true - I've never been a fan of Mario.

Robotron:2084 - probably appeared in more Desert Island Disks than any other game... I'd rather swim for the mainland and drown than be stranded on a desert island with that game!
GAME OVER YEEEAAAHHH!

Mario is a Tw@t.

Sonic is an overrated boring game.

Halo is the most overrated games of all time.

Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat games are rubbish.

Agreed!

Sorry! I disagree with this one. At least Sonic has more style than Mario!

Doom is the only FPS worth playing in my opinion

I agree with MK being a bit rubbish - it was hyped up no end.
But how can you say this about the Street Fighter series of games - Street Fighter II defined the 1v1 beat 'em up genre. SF2 IS THE GREATEST BEAT 'EM UP GAME EVER! Full Stop.

What controversial view !?!

Ohhh! That one.
The view that the Amstrad CPC has better versions of Batman, Head Over Heels, Gauntlet, Gauntlet II, Arkanoid, Legend of Kage, Game Over I & II than what the Spectrum does :D

Games are supposed to be FUN!

If I buy a racing game I want to be able to crash at 200MPH and be back on the track within seconds!
Gran Turismo's single greatest fault is that you can do this.
