What is your favourite 'worst' PSX game?

Post by Dirk Gently » Sat Apr 19, 2014 11:37 pm

Some fairly horrific titles came out on the old PS, but I wonder do any of you guys have any recollections of a game or 'games', that stood out as being particularly nasty?

I'm not just talking dull as ditchwater gameplay stuff here - Hugo etc.

What about mind baffingly bizarre. In that you cannae understand the cheek of somebody 'developing' it? I remember some titles (early in the life of the console) when it seemed any old garbage was good as long as it fitted into the case. Was there some Aerosmith game anybody? That frightened me when I saw the box.

I'd be interested to hear what anybody thinks, I've just dug out the old PS and instead of sitting in front of the fire with a beer, I'm playing Ape Escape.

With a beer though.

I hope Ape Escape isnae supposed to be crap as I'm getting a hoot out've it.

Peace & Love.

p.s isnae & hoot shouldnae be in the same sentence I know.

Zero Divide

I got it with my PS1 back in the day and although it is the most sluggish beat em up in the history of the world, I got hours out of it.

I remember the PlayStation version of Chef's Luv Shack getting a complete baw-bootin' from the critics at the time. Fair enough, it was a shameless cash-in that probably took the studio's work experience student a lunchtime to develop, but it's still one that my mates and I enjoy playing. Lots of good memories of Chef's Luv Shack multiplayer sessions.

I'd rather remember the good games TBH.

It should have been really, too much beer, wasn't thinking straight. By the way - bint? I thought that used to be slang for a peculiar lady. Has it evolved since?

I see what you mean, the actual idea was though - to hear and talk about games that were supposed to be trashy but ended up being fun. Not just terrible ones.

The best part of RG magazine and the forum for me, has been finding out about games I never knew existed, or to look at ones I did know in a new light.

That and utilising the forum to meet really hot chicks who want to kiss and do tops.

I'm into that. Though the 'commentator' would give Mr Garrison a run for his money. V. funny. Good call boy!

I may check that out! Roo where did you get that gilf? I actually know a guy who is like the flame shirt dude on the right. He's a fisherman, with a big tum and a handlebar.
