Ten Worst Games of the Year

by Pete Closs, : October 25, 2000

In this article we take a look at this year’s games that, for lack of a better term, sucked. Very much so, in fact. Why do such an article? Because these titles were all so bad that it’s worth poking fun at their failures, if only to make sure no one buys a single copy of any of these games ever again. Conspicuous by their absence from this list are titles like Frogger 2 and Pong 3D, but then those were so bad we couldn’t even bring ourselves to mention them here at SharkyGames. Besides, this is a look at the worst games of this year, not games of the last century with a 3D facelift.

As with the Holiday Games Guide, these eminently avoidable titles are ranked in no particular order because all these games are so bad that they all deserve to sit on the very bottom rung of the games ladder this year and indeed forever. Of course, with so many terrible games released each year this quick list is hardly going to be exhaustive, but these are some of the more ghastly titles that still send shivers down my spine. You’ll want to read this for a reminder of which games to avoid, games to laugh at and games the publishers would most likely rather forget, as would we.

Now on with it…
