From the worst games to the worst consoles to even terrible moments in gaming history, this wiki was made to warn gamers about some the worst in video game history. This was the first wiki of its kind created; it was founded by Grust back in 2013 on FANDOM, and moved to Miraheze in September 2018.

Yandere Simulator - An generic Yandere game that took 6 years to add a rival character, the main character not following the definition of "yandere", poor coding and a lazy developer who cannot take the slightest form of criticism.
Digital Homicide - A game studio that is unable to take criticism and went as far as to take Jim Sterling and 100 other Steam users to court just for criticizing their games.

Fallout 76 - An incredibly buggy MMO game that ruined Bethesda's goodwill and kept humiliating the company day after day with new problems and unnecessary paywalls.
Hong Kong 97 - An incredibly rare SNES game that features dropping of the F-word, an infectuous song that never stops looping, and a correct prediction of Deng Xiaoping's death in 1997.
RAID: Shadow Legends - A shallow free-to-play mobile game that's been sponsored by every YouTuber on the planet.
Sega 32X - Sega's failed add-on for the Sega Genesis that was supposed to enhance its graphical capabilities, but it looked ugly and was made as an excuse to keep the Genesis on life support.

Quantity over Quality is never a good thing.
Genre: Various

Sega Genesis
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (cancelled)
Release Date: 1991 (Nintendo Entertainment System)
1993 (Sega Genesis)
Developer: Active Enterprises (NES)
FarSight Technologies (Genesis)

Action 52 is an unlicensed compilation of 52 games released for the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis by Active Enterprises. The most infamous game is Cheetahmen, which Active Enterprises hoped to transform into a franchise with comic books, action figures, and a Saturday morning cartoon. That game received a sequel which was left unfinished and unreleased.

It's a rare game and despite its horrible quality, it is valued among game collectors. There have also been attempts to create polished remakes of the games.


About Featured Articles | Nominate an Article

  1. There are two major headings to use for wiki pages: Why It Sucks and Why It Flopped. Why it Flopped is reserved for consoles and add-ons as these can fail but still have several redeeming qualities, good games, and even a fanbase, in fact it can be used in a few games like LawBreakers, which only flopped commercially and financially. Why It Sucks is reserved for games and accessories as some have little to no redeeming qualities. If the company is now going downhill due to one or more games, has ruined great game companies, like Konami for example, it would be here as Why They Suck or Why They Suck Now section. For games considered "Average", then "Good Qualities" and "Bad Qualities" can be used instead, but make sure to include the "Average Games" category. The game being average is NOT depending the reason numbers, it depends to the reception. Custom headings aren’t allowed due to being completely unnecessary and the potential of users inserting coarse language on the headings or rather unoriginal jokes. Coloring names aren’t allowed, due to also being unnecessary. Plus, they show up wrong on certain devices.
  2. Never copy-paste from other sites like Wikipedia when writing articles as it is considered plagiarism.
  3. Rude behavior towards other users will not be accepted. If you are rude towards another user, expect a temporary ban. If it is repeated, permanent.
  4. You will be allowed to appeal your ban on your talk page, unless what you did was unforgivable.
  5. Writing down the plot of the game is completely optional. If you want to write the plot of the game, DO NOT include spoilers. Short summaries are fine as long as they're not include spoilers.
  6. Do not create new categories. If you think a new category is needed, ask the admins. If your suggestion proves to be useful, they'll create it for you.
  7. Do not put any game, moment, company related categories to the blog pages, expect a warning or a block for adding them again.
  8. Off-topic pages will not be accepted on this wiki; those will be deleted immediately, and the user who creates the page will be warned. Users will also be banned if it is repeated. Make off topic pages as blogs instead.
  9. Pages created by trolls (such as Video Games that people and critics liked and one person doesn't) will also result in a ban.
  10. Refrain from using swear words as much as possible in articles (exclusions include if there are any swear words in quotes). Swearing in the comments is fine as long as it isn't used to offend others.
  11. Also never type way too much all-caps on pages for no good reason, as it makes pages look unprofessional. Using italics, bold text, or underlining is okay however, as long as it isn't overused.
  12. Joke pages are not allowed here unless it is a blog (with few expectations).
  13. Reasons for deleted comments are poor grammar, malicious propaganda, harassing others, baseless insulting or if the comment makes no sense.
  14. Removing information, messing with the articles without giving a good reason, or any kind of vandalism, in general, will result in a ban.
  15. Because of the corruption in gaming journalism, as of September 4, 2015, the only reliable sources of game reviews will be user-based sites like GameFAQs and web reviewers. Game journalists supported by GamerGate are welcome so be sure to check out DeepFreeze for sites supported by GamerGate. As for GameFAQs, a game will be put on as long as it has a rating of two stars or lower. There can be a few exceptions to this rule if strong reasons for the article are provided.
  16. Please try to politely argue if you think a page should be deleted.
  17. If you want to create a Sandbox page, do not tag your sandbox page with categories, as they will not only clutter the categories, they are only for actual articles.
  18. Users' sandboxes can be edited only by their respective owners unless the owner themself grants permission to contribute to the WIP pages contained in the sandbox. A notice has to be placed on top of the sandbox to state that other people can edit the WIP articles; in case of sandboxes containing multiple WIP articles, the owner has to place a notice for each article he wants other people to help with.
  19. Sandboxes can't be used to contain articles which aren't allowed on the wiki, or alternate, personal version of already existing articles because that is seen as an attempt to bypass the wiki's quality control and admin management; the purpose of sandboxes is only to work on pages in preparation of uploading them to the main namespace of the wiki.
  20. Do not make blog posts that are hit pieces to certain users you don't like or pages either.
  21. Grust is the only one with any right to threaten and torture the administrators. Anyone else gets permabanned and launched into space for eternity.
  22. We allow memes, but please put them in the trivia section if needed, as memes don't make or break a game's quality.
  23. If you are creating pages for terrible NSFW or NSFL games, please add NSFW or NSFL warning templates at the very top of the page first.
  24. Do not send foe requests to any user, as it will likely cause drama.
  25. Before creating any pages, please, see the "Forbidden Pages" section for what is not allowed.
  26. Do not add the fact that a game has a toxic fanbase and/or hatebase as a bad quality. Anyone who does this will be blocked without warning.
  27. Do not use quotes like "Just play X instead", "This game makes X look like a masterpiece" or "More like X" because they're lazy and unoriginal. If you have no idea for a quote, don't write any of the ones listed before.
  28. Please do not make articles about other users, because this could start flame wars, and besides, a few wikis were shut down because of the articles on other users that was meant to promote harassment, and humiliation.
  29. Also, to put this into perspective, to the other admins if you're going to block a disruptive user, please don't use any homophobic slurs or anything racist.
  30. Web reviewers/YouTubers are not acceptable here unless they have an extremely and widely known poor reputation.
  31. We also have ZERO TOLERANCE on spreading rumors about people or users. Articles that are confirmed to have rumors that are nothing but lies will be subsequently deleted. Those who are caught doing so will result in a block without warning.
  32. Death threats of any kind is strictly prohibited, and those who send them towards any of the admins or any editor for that matter will be blocked without warning.
  33. Do not upload multiple cover arts which have the same artwork. We are still tolerant of uploading regional cover arts, depending on the artwork and title being different from the other one.
  34. "At least it's better than...", and "Wasted the talents of..." reasons, as well as terms like "Let that sink in" are not allowed due to being overused.
  35. Do not downvote unpopular opinions in the comments, unless it's for a game with particularly offensive content (such as racial, sexual, or other horrifically offensive stereotypes, as well as pedophilia), as it will likely cause drama.
  36. Do not use terms like "Receptiontards, Receptionspregs or Receptionf**s", as they're nothing but insults to people who like the Reception Wikis and they will likely cause drama.
Video Games
  • Any dedicated DLC page - Already covered in the game's pages.
  • Any gameplay-related page - Same reason as DLC pages and should be here instead.
  • Any Roblox game-related page - Same reason as DLC and gameplay-related pages.

  • Game Freak - Too divisive for a topic.
  • Blizzard Entertainment - The current Blizzard is a part of the union with Activision. Details about their business practices is included in the following article; Activision Blizzard.

  • Any internet trolls (like Mariotehplumber) - Self-explanatory. Also counts as troll feeding.
  • Any toxic fanbases - Fanbases are nothing do with the games.
  • ProsafiaGaming - Despite being infamous for spoiling games, he is continuously overhated and was nearly killed by a hater, so it's best if we don't talk about him.

The offline features such as the link trade and the link battle doesn't need a subscription service, you can play the game fine, even with the DLCs and Pokémon Home. But in Dragon's Dogma, all the online features are totally free. I don't know why i took so long just to reply this message.)
