So Bad It's Good: The Best of the Worst

GOGmix by piglatinpoet's avatarpiglatinpoet 3votes

Phantasmagoria

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: Best known for its many gruesome death scenes, Phantasmagoria earned its place here for unintentionally hilarious acting, scripting, and, well, everything else. If you have a dark sense of humor, this one is a laughfest. Watch out for the gypsy oaf!

Phantasmagoria 2

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: Everything that makes P1 fun times a billion. You could watch the Let's Play on spoonyexperiment.com... Or you could experience the madness for yourself! Come on, aren't you just dying to show every object in your inventory to everyone you meet?

Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy)

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: The end makes no sense, the gameplay is like a rhythm game's dance moves (except here it's martial arts, guitar playing, love making, and murder scene cleanup), and the developer TOTALLY GOT AWAY WITH IT. Everyone knows this game. Enter Heavy Rain.

Kingdom: The Far Reaches

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: It's hard to put this one into words. Frustrating? Sure, but does it have its rewards? I'd argue yes. One GOG reviewer laments, "This game has a decent story, but HOLY JESUS CRAP DO YOU DIE A LOT!" Yes, you do. And it is *hilarious*.

Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: Don't get me wrong here, this is a pretty good game-- but FMV is a pretty bad format. Honestly, it's done reasonably well here; the acting isn't hammy, the script makes sense, and the puzzles are fun. But, hey, IT'S STILL FMV! So let's have at it.

Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred...

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: Oh, the infancy of 3D. Again, a pretty okay game-- but the writers pull a Dan Brown on the story and get lost. As a history buff, I know this game gets it all wrong, and it's pretty funny how far afield they go. Still fun, but hackneyed.

Daikatana

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: This gaming abortion is legendary. Everything from ham-fisted gameplay, terrible voiceacting, and the goofiest marketing campaign imaginable make this the king of bad. Its horrors actually come back around as funny if you try.

MegaRace 3

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: Terrible racer, awesome FMV Lance Boyle. I wouldn't recommend spending money on this one though, as the "so bad it's good" label I'm giving it really means "terrible, but one part of it is so bad it's good."

Ultima™ 9: Ascension

piglatinpoet's rating:
250

piglatinpoet says: This is one to skip entirely: watch Spoony's review at spoonyexperiment.com to understand why. While I can freely list this in kind based on his gameplay, I can't vouch personally. Its so-bad-goodness comes directly from the frustration of another.

Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)

Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!

So, what are the ingredients?

Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?

Justify your choice... Or not!

OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
