Welcome to the Crappy Games Wiki!
Ineptly-made games that will make you feel ripped off.
WHAT IS THIS WIKI ABOUT?
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.
1,471 article(s) 207,918 edits 2,956 files
Ride to Hell: Retribution - Completely unfinished muff with a huge amount of technical problems that were surprisingly released by a well-known publisher.
Superman 64 - Definitely the worst video games based on the legendary DC superhero, and the biggest abomination of video game history.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial - The infamous Atari 2600 game that led to the Video Game Crash of 1983 and the excess stock of which was buried in a landfill in New Mexico.
Race with Ryan - An obvious Mario Kart rip-off that exists just to fill Ryan's already filled pockets.
Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing - A racing game that's so bad, it's winner.
Daikatana - John Romero's overhyped first-person shooter game that was constantly delayed and underdelivered.
Mighty No. 9 - An overhyped Kickstarter game from Mega Man alum Keiji Inafune that suffered constant delays and made Mega Man fans cry like anime fans on prom night.
Tencent - The phantom menace of the gaming industry who had a control of over 50 companies and game studios, both directly and indirectly.
Drake of the 99 Dragons - A badly made third-person shooter that was meant to spawn a franchise which ultimately never came to be.
Plumbers Don't Wear Ties - A collection of slideshows with weird filters made as a barely interactive movie.
Yandere Simulator - A 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.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 - A horrible game, which was rushed in development, that almost killed the franchise and its image until a remake of the first two games debuted.
Metal Gear Survive - A Metal Gear game made without Hideo Kojima that proved to be the final nail in the coffin for the franchise.
Atari Jaguar - Atari's final foray into the game console market that falsely claimed to be 64-bit.
Fast & Furious Crossroads - A reminder of the time of making terrible licensed games and a textbook example showing that shovelware games are not only budget games. It's not about the quality of the game, it's all about family.
EA's Star Wars Battlefront II - A game featuring "surprise mechanics" that became to the center of a massive controversy regarding loot boxes.
Electronic Arts - An infamously money-hungry game company that sets the standard of corporate greed in the industry.
Bubsy 3D - The fourth video game from the most unlikable video game mascot of all time.
Super Meat Boy Forever - A very ill-considered sequel of one of the best platformers among indie games, turning into a soulless auto-runner with randomly generated levels.
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 sponsoring 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.
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels - A sequel to Super Mario Bros. that is notorious for artificial difficulties.
Mortal Kombat: Special Forces - A Mortal Kombat origin story of Jax that suffered a troubled development cycle and is one of the titles disowned by Ed Boon.
Konami - An once beloved game company that has fallen from grace in recent years.
Sonic '06 - The Blue Blur's disastrous reboot and the next-gen debut that was hugely rushed out in time for Sonic's 15th anniversary.
Warcraft III: Reforged - A terrible remaster of one of the most beloved RTS games that promised more than it could deliver.
NBA 2K20 - A basketball game that has a literal casino inside of itself, with other flaws including an explicit soundtrack, a terrible MyTeam mode and cringeworthy dialogue.

Atari - Formerly the pioneer of the gaming industry, it has now reduced into a small studio after many mistakes.

G2A.com - The "black market" of the gaming industry that became notorious for selling illegal and pirated game keys.

RULES AND GUIDELINES
  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 "Bad Qualities" and "Good 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. As quality control begins to apply stronger than ever, check out the tutorial on how to create a page, before creating an article.
  3. Due to the insane amount of troll pages and vandalism in the past, users must now be autconfirmed to create an article or even edit it. Ask one of the admins to autoconfirm you in a message to them.
  4. Never copy-paste from other sites like Wikipedia when writing articles as it is considered plagiarism.
  5. 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.
  6. You will be allowed to appeal your ban on your talk page, unless what you did was unforgivable.
  7. Writing down the plot of the game is completely optional. If you want to write the plot of the game, don't include spoilers. Short summaries are fine as long as they're not include spoilers.
  8. If the page mentions a failed port of a good game, never add "The game itself is still good" as a good quality, because as mentioned earlier, it only mentions a dedicated port, not the game itself.
  9. 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.
  10. Do not put any game, moment, company related categories to the blog pages, expect a warning or a block for adding them again.
  11. 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.
  12. Pages created by trolls (such as Video Games that people and critics liked and one person doesn't) will also result in a ban.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Joke pages are not allowed here unless it is a blog (with few expectations).
  16. Reasons for deleted comments are poor grammar, malicious propaganda, harassing others, baseless insulting or if the comment makes no sense.
  17. Removing information, messing with the articles without giving a good reason, or any kind of vandalism, in general, will result in a ban.
  18. 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. However, there can be exceptions to this rule depending on how fair or honest a journalist's review is. 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.
  19. Please try to politely argue if you think a page should be deleted.
  20. 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.
  21. Except for changes like fixing typos, fixing grammatical errors or fixing dead links, 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Do not make blog posts that are hit pieces to certain users you don't like or pages either.
  24. Grust is the only one with any right to threaten and torture the administrators. Anyone else gets permabanned and launched into space for eternity.
  25. We allow memes, but please put them in the trivia section if needed, as memes don't make or break a game's quality.
  26. If you are creating pages for terrible NSFW or NSFL games, add NSFW or NSFL warning templates at the very top of the page first.
  27. Do not send foe requests to any user, as it will likely cause drama.
  28. Before creating any pages, see the "Forbidden Pages" section for what is not allowed.
  29. Do not add the fact that a game has a toxic fanbase and/or hatebase as a bad quality. Persisting with this will result in a block without warning.
  30. 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.
  31. "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.
  32. 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.
  33. 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.
  34. Web reviewers/YouTubers/Users are not acceptable here unless they have an extremely and widely known poor reputation.
  35. We also have no 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.
  36. 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.
  37. 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.
  38. 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.
  39. No harmful and insulting content directed to the wikis and to their users posted off-site will be tolerated; in addition, no excuses like "it's a joke", "it is not to be taken seriously" will be valid. Regarding how old the offending content is, it will be up to the administration staff to decide but know that generally the harmfulness of verifiable malicious content doesn't expire after a certain period of time.
  40. Do not close threads so soon without waiting for someone else to give their two cents.
  41. Users can only use one account to edit Crappy Games Wiki. Any known alternative accounts (sockpuppets) will be permanently banned. Repeated sockpuppetry will result in the main account being banned.
  42. To avoid Content Policy violations, articles about persons need at least one reliable source to confirm a claim. Offending articles will be deleted without warning.
  43. Don't put "Haven (x company) had more time/ better development planning, (x game) would be on Awesome Games Wiki". It makes pages look unprofessional and lazy.
  44. Downvoting comments is no longer allowed, due to the heavy amount of opinion disrespecting and trollism, and the comment code has been changed to upvotes only. Anyone who downvotes a comment after changing the code back to normal will be blocked without warning.
  45. For admins, please do not delete comments, blogs, or talk pages that contain criticisms of the wikis, as it will make us look like we can't handle criticism.
  46. Do not use Title Case in the titles of articles about terrible moments in gaming history or categories, because it makes pages look less professional.
  47. Do not tell other users to make pages for you instead of doing so yourself. If you cannot create a page for whatever reason, just ask an admin to confirm/autoconfirm you.
