The GOG Hall of Infamy: So Bad They're Good?

GOGmix by TheKid965's avatarTheKid965 17votes

Daikatana

TheKid965's rating: not rated yet

TheKid965 says: One of the most notorious bombs in PC gaming history, this FPS dealt a BFG-like blow to John Romero's reputation as a rockstar designer despite some innovative (for the time) ideas.

King's Quest 7+8

TheKid965's rating: not rated yet
250

TheKid965 says: Mask of Eternity, the final KQ game, took major criticism for abandoning the traditional "fairytale" point-and-click setting of the series for a darker, first-person affair with little connection to the Daventry of old. For completists only.

Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude: ...

TheKid965's rating: not rated yet
250

TheKid965 says: If the original LSL games were R-rated romantic comedies from the '80s, sexy but with sophistication, this 2000s sequel/reboot was American Pie -- loud, crass, and boorish. And proud of it.

Might and Magic® 9

TheKid965's rating: not rated yet
250

TheKid965 says: Shipped in a buggy/unfinished state just before 3DO went under, and with little of the series' trademark nonlinearness; a disappointing climax to the original M&M RPGs. (The GOG version does come pre-patched to fix its worst show-stopping bugs.)

Myst Masterpiece Edition

TheKid965's rating: not rated yet
250

TheKid965 says: For some, Myst is a masterpiece of atmosphere and design. For others, it's a maddening collection of obscure puzzles and frustratingly few in-game clues to solve them. There's almost no middle ground, which is why it's on this list.

Return to Zork

TheKid965's rating: not rated yet
250

TheKid965 says: Zork, a game that can trace its roots back to the UNIX mainframes of the '70s, got the CD-ROM treatment in the early '90s... complete with choppy FMV and horrible, cringeworthy acting.

Ultima™ 8 Gold Edition

TheKid965's rating: not rated yet
250

TheKid965 says: "Super Avatar Bros." was the fans' tagline for this game, which moved the series away from pure RPG and introduced realtime arcade-style sequences. The game also took heat from religious groups for its original box art (a flaming pentagram).

Ultima™ 9: Ascension

TheKid965's rating: not rated yet
250

TheKid965 says: An ambitious and well-intentioned attempt to end the "trilogy of trilogies" begun by the original 1980 Ultima, this game was unfortunately doomed thanks to many delays and mismanegement by EA.

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.
