Angry Video Game Nerd takes a look at the 32X and what a mess of an idea it was… I LOL’d when he started looking at the wire/cord situation!
Pick a random list of bad games from the NES era and chances are, Hydlide will make the top 25.
How bad is it?
Well, let’s see what the Angry Video Game Nerd thought…
As a bad game, Dark Castle for the Sega Genesis has everything going for it: hideous graphics, horrible controls, annoying sound effects, collision detection problems, repetitive music, etc.
It’s enough to drive a gamer nuts.
So, let’s watch the Angry Video Game Nerd lose his sh_t over it!
If there is one thing I know about video games, it’s that publishers won’t blink about slapping a movie or TV license on a crappy game just to make a buck.
In the grand scheme of things, games based on licensed properties are usually terrible or mediocre at best.
This makes you wonder why a Famicom game based on the Transformers license never had an NES release, despite the show’s popularity in the US.
How bad could it be?
Let’s as the Angry Video Game Nerd..
Darkwing Duck for the NES is basically Mega Man with a different sprite set.
On the other hand, Darkwing Duck for the TG-16 is basically terrible and may be the worst game on the doomed 16-bit console.
Here’s a hilarious look at the game by the Angry Video Game Nerd…
The original Metal Gear for the MSX computer was a hit in Japan. But, since no one outside of Japan had an MSX, to bring the title to the rest of the world, Konami would need to port it to other systems, namely the NES.
However, a 1:1 port wasn’t possible so what we got in the States was sort of a buggy mess.
Take a handful of gamers from the 1980s and ask them which game was the hardest they ever tried playing and at least one will cough up Silver Surfer.
I don’t know if it’s just me but a character shouldn’t be a super hero if they can die from just one hit.
Maybe I’m wrong…
Skip to about 10 mins 35 secs in this Mario 3/ The Wizard episode of Angry Video Game Nerd to hear his hilarious theory on how Mario 3 is the product of the devil.
If you want to get an old school gamer’s blood to run cold, just tell them you think the NES Back to the Future titles were classics.
Bart Vs. The Space Mutants has to be, hands down, one of the biggest gaming disappointments ever.
