The worst videogame ever
I’ve been playing video games for a LONG LONG time. I’ve played a lot of bad ones in my time. I’ve played a lot of good ones. The one I want to talk about most definitely falls in the BAD category.
While I’ve not personally played the game, I ran across this review of Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing. This qualifies as one of the best reviews of a bad game I’ve ever read. You know it’s great when the review actually says “Please do not play this game. We cannot stress this enough.”. It’s a great game review.
What’s even funnier is the video review at the bottom of the page. It requires you to be a Gamespot subscriber to view, but it quite possibly is the funniest thing I’ve seen in awhile. It also has gameplay footage which is quite hysterical in and of itself. How someone could release such a steaming pile like this as a boxed video game is beyond me. And it’s got the name Activision on it, too. It’s incomprehensible how a game company could release this. It boggles the mind. (UPDATE: The video is no longer on the Gamespot site, but I did find it on Youtube, I embedded it here)
UPDATE Jan 2022: I ran across this page 18 years later and wanted to add a pic of myself in 2004 – I did buy the game as a badge of honor to own something so bad. I added it to this page… :)
