Was just reminiscing about some of the great games I enjoyied when I was younger:
Zelda : A Link to the Past
And it got me thinking about some of the absolute stinkers I purchased too. Running home with a NES or Master System game i'd spent an ice age to save up for only to find it being an absolute pile of shit...
Here are 3 that were my worst offenders:
1. Ren & Stimpy Veediots (SNES):
I loved the TV show so much I paid £50.00 for this piece of shit on my SNES (US import). Oh the crushing disappointment when I got it home, what was I thinking?!
2. WWF Wrestlemania (NES):
I loved the WWF in the late 80's early 90's. Yes, I did consider Wrassling as a full time career move! ;) So, while I was waiting to start my Wrassling journey, I paid £49.99 for WWF Wrestlemania on the NES....
Oh the humanity... Words do not describe how bad it was, yet my child like imagination still enabled me to play it even though I knew it was as awful as Macho Mans outfits.
3. TMNT (Atari ST)
I reallllly wanted a NES in 1989. I was lucky enough to have an Atari ST but the NES pad was so cool to me back then compared to a joystick. It had 2 buttons! 2!!!!! Turtles was the game to get, so in the absence of my NES, I got it for the Atari ST instead.
Big mistake, the graphics and sound may look better but the playability (which wasen;t even that great on the NES), stank like Splinters bed. Again, I tried to enjoy it, but everytime I saw this advert on TV:
I cried a little inside!
Anyway, feel free to share your gaming tales of sadness! :)
