I don't seem to remember being too judgemental toward games back in the SNES days, as I was pretty much content just to play anything. My first console was a Sega Master System, which I still own... but it's broken. The only game I remember being somewhat sceptical toward on that was Spy Vs Spy, since I believe it only had one level? Could be wrong on that... it has been years.
I guess in more recent years, I'd have to say Sonic the Hedgehog on PS3. I'm obviously not the only person to call it terrible, and I even bought the game knowing full well how unpopular it was. Needless to say, there is a reason for that. The game is pretty rough around the edges to begin with, so not only is it dull, but you need to sit through ridiculously long load times before you even get a chance enter the levels (not to mention those horrible town missions). Maybe the load times are better on Xbox 360, I don't know... either way, it's bad.
On a side note, my favorite "bad game" is True Crime: New York City. It's clearly a buggy, unfinished mess, but somehow it makes the game quite entertaining, like being able to roundhouse kick people next to their cars and then watching them float slowly toward the clouds before vanishing into nothing. On the other hand, having the road shift back and forth beneath you as your driving around the city is a bit disturbing.

My stuff is here: treblayevrah.webs.com
(Biohazard 0 Trial info, GCN hacking, etc.)
Ones I've actually played real copies of or owned, so no emulating or anything like that:
NES: The Incredible Crash Dummies
Mega Drive: Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story
PC: Tough one, there have been so many bad PC games I've had over the years, but Transformers: Beast Wars sticks out as a really bad one.
Game Gear: Sonic Labyrinth (although Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is close)
PS2: probably Sega Ages Golden Axe
Taxi 2 of Playstation, the most infamous driving game of all times (its like a million time worse than Big Rigs, and its actually finished)
Space Giraffe I hate that game so much that even Jeff Minter himself knows I hate it and him for making it.
For me Action 52 on the NES is the biggest pile of dog dirt ever, why people feel the need to spend money on it. Would be cheaper to find a dominatrix to do painful things to you rather then to play it.
Like anyone reads the rubbish in the signature.
1. Space Giraffe is so disorenting I can't play the game without getting Dizzy
2. Even if I wasn't on the verge of vomiting I still have no idea what the hell is going on.
3. If they were doing video games instead of images in a Clockwork Orange I'm pretty sure this would be the first game they'd force Alex to play
There is a cool effect in the game if you take video of it and slow it down, you'll see a face appear. Still doesn't mean the game isn't a complete seziure inducing tempest wannabe mess.

No, he's pretty spot on. Space Giraffe is fairly goddamn brilliant once you figure out the mechanics.
As for the worst game I've ever played, I imagine that would be Planet Joker. Or Cube Ninja on 3DS.
Also, it may just be nostalgia (because it was the second NES game I ever owned, right after SMB), but I love King's Knight. As a kid I never figured out how to cast the spells which certainly makes the final level impossible, but once I figured that out it turned out to be a pretty fun game.
Like Sonc 3D Blast too, though I vastly prefer the Saturn version (as I imagine anyone would).

lol sounds like there is a fair few bad games out there the worst ones i own are
Action 52 Sega Genesis
Shaq fu Sega Genesis
Rise of the robots Sega Megadrive
Way of the warrior 3DO
and some other bad ones on various systems and what is that one on that picture ?? is that a Brazil Megadrive game ? idk i never played one so no idea
I like playing the occasional bad game they help you appreciate the good ones more. Recent bad games:
Leisure Suit Larry - Box Office Bust
Supposed to be the worst game of 2009 but not actually that bad. To be truly bad a game has to be broken, full of script errors and bits where you get stuck in the scenery and unresponsive controls and the rest. Leisure Suit Larry is just a bit corny and a bit boring. Doesn't deserve worst game of 2009.
N.O.V.A - PSP
Port of the iPhone game. Again, not properly bad, just really dull. It's kinda like Halo if Halo was designed by your mum.
Blood Stone 007 - Again, just deathly dull and boring.
Bad games have been disappointing me. Need to bring out the 3DO and the Atari Jaguar for some real genuine suck.

Probably Wayne's World on the SNES, one of the worst licensed games, I've ever played...
Played the New RE:ORC yesterday for 360...
I can safely say that deserves a spot on this list. Talk about fucking boring! I can't believe they managed to make it even worse from 4-5.
First enemies you fight are Guerrilla Warfare type troopers that can sustain multiple headshot's and just get knocked back (even on Normal)... *Yawn*
Not to mention the game is devoid of any kind of terror that can be induced since you are just wandering around with your lil' group the whole time in an Action oriented environment.
Turned off the game after about 20 minutes.
Um... Sonic Spinball is one of those games I really want to like from its concept, then remember I always have to give up in level 2. The layout frustration increase over level 1 goes beyond my skill/luck.
While I'm too biased against Final Fantasy XII to give a fair chance. After playing a few early fights I pretty much quit offended. Sorry but I'll never accept anything other than KOTOR as the pinnacle of KOTOR-resembling battle mechanics!
