I wonder if it's a good thing that I can't remember playing any games so bad worthy of posting names here. And I've been gaming for about 25 years now. I mean yeah I've had some games that weren't great and all but still far away from being trash.
The PS1 version of Shadowman.

Played it through to 100% completion on the N64 and loved every minute of it, same goes for the PC version.

After enjoying it so much on the N64 borrowed it from a friend on the PS1 to see how they did with it......utter crap, visually it struggles and the controls were also REALLY bad. Shame really as it was and still is an awesome game to this day.
Usually I avoid or forget the horrible games that don't have any redeeming qualities so it's a bit hard for me to name titles that truly deserve the title "worst game ever". I remember Psychotoxic as being one of the worst shooters I have ever played but an even worse game was Nina Agent - I don't recall in detail why it was shit but believe me, it just is and feels like some crap two untalented teenagers may have developed in a few weeks in a garage. Then there was March! Offworld Recon. The trailer almost makes it look like a fun game but don't let it fool you - it's pure garbage that may make you throw your keyboard at the screen.

On a different note, I just tried to link to the trailer but for some reason I just got an error that says that I'm unable to post links at the moment. o_O

Anyway: Most games that make me wanna shout "worst game ever!" are those that give me some reason to presume they are good or even great. For example Empire Earth looks and sounds like a pretty good game but playing it was one of the worst experiences I've had as a gamer. At first I thought that it was just an uninspired generic RTS but then I noticed that the devs didn't even have a basic understanding of the RTS genre and any of their attempts to make it special actually broke the basic mechanics (I mean, the only challenge is clumsily introduced through a ridiculously low popcap - and the only way to raise it are occasional upgrades present in few scenarios that allow you to produce two and a half more units!) - and the developers' approach to history is giving me brain cancer. Also Celtic Kings may not be the worst RTS ever made but again - it could have been a decent generic RTS but the devs apparently insisted on including features just for the sake of making it a virtual buttfuck.
The submissions in this thread are peanuts compared to some actually terrible games

The worst game I have ever played was Eternal Ring on PS2, that game is literally piss and shit compressed on a disk
If you've ever tried to play Dungeon Lords, i suggest you try to play Dungeon Lords online with a friend.

Double the pain.
for me its republic: the revolution

and Frank Herbert's Dune the action / adventure game... its litterally unplayable

Roman5: that game is literally piss and shit compressed on a disk
You ought to be glad the disk even works after having waste products pressed into it.
I said Space Siege without explaining why, since i could write a masters thesis on why, here
are the bullet points.

-No WSAD movement
-No way to dodge and aim
-No way to move other then mouse
-Enemy AI is bad, really bad, they use numbers to cover this fact up
-Story has no impact
-Becoming human or all cyborg has little impact
-Low res textures and poly count on most objects
-Highly repetitive
-the fact that Gas Powered games made this makes me sad :(

Your better off getting Shadowgrounds or Alien Breed...

Speaking of "unplayable" - there's two things I only discovered after already having spent a lot of time with the game:
1. That you have to run the game through the autorun menu to get mouse support - at least for me the mouse wouldn't work when running it through a shortcut or directly through the exe.
2. You can heal yourself by pressing backspace.

I actually beat three or four levels with only panning the view by pushing my back to a wall which would align it in 90° steps and I think I beat the whole game without healing myself even once - I'm quite sure that only after that I read in the manual how you can heal yourself. These realizations made the game almost seem brilliant to me. :P

this was one of the few games that actually made me cry... At the time i played it i had really high expectations for it... and it just let me down in a big way... i remember it made me very sad... then very angry... then very sad again...

It was just extremely tedious and boring.
