E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is a 1982 adventure video game developed and published by Atari, Inc. For the Atari 2600 video game console. It is based on the film of the same name, and was designed by Howard Scott Warshaw. The objective of the game is ... to guide the eponymous character through various screens to collect three pieces of an interplanetary telephone that will allow him to contact his home planet.Warshaw intended the game to be an innovative adaptation of the film, and Atari thought it would achieve high sales figures based on its connection with the film, which was extremely popular throughout the world. Negotiations to secure the rights to make the game ended in late July 1982, giving Warshaw only five and a half weeks to develop the game in time for the 1982 Christmas season. The result is often cited as one of the worst video games released and was one of the biggest commercial failures in video gaming history. The game's commercial failure and resulting effects on Atari are frequently cited as a contributing factor to the video game industry crash of 1983.E.T. Is frequently cited as a contributing factor to Atari's massive financial losses during 1983 and 1984   more

Custer's Revenge

Custer's Revenge is a controversial video game made for the Atari 2600 by Mystique, a company that produced a number of adult video game titles for the system. The player character is based on General George Armstrong Custer. The game was first rele... ased on September 23, 1982, and has received significant criticism because of its crude simulation of a rape of an Indian woman.Like many other video game manufacturers of the early 1980s, Mystique soon went out of business. It sold the rights to its games to Playaround, which continued to market Custer's Revenge as Westward Ho for a time. Playaround made minor modifications to the game, which included making the skin of the woman darker and having her extend her arm and gesture to Custer to come over to her. It also made a version of the game called General Retreat   more

Hotel Mario

Hotel Mario is a computer puzzle game developed by Fantasy Factory and published by Philips Interactive Media and Nintendo for the Philips CD-i in 1994. The primary character of the game is Mario, who must find Princess Toadstool by going through se... ven Koopa hotels in the Mushroom Kingdom. Every hotel is divided into multiple stages, and the objective is to close all doors on each stage. Defeating a Koopaling on the hotel's final stage takes the player to the following building.After Nintendo decided not to have Philips create an add-on for the Super Famicom/Super NES, they gave Philips permission to use their characters in games for Philips' CD-i. The games were given little time to be developed and little funding, and Nintendo only gave cursory input.The games resulting from the license were widely criticized, with Hotel Mario being regarded as one of the worst Mario-centered games, due to the animation of the shutting doors, the unresponsive controls and especially known for the cutscenes that used full motion video. The CD-i was considered a commercial failure and the games became valuable due to their rarity   more

Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing is a 2003 third-person racing video game developed by Stellar Stone and published by GameMill Publishing for Microsoft Windows PC systems. The game was released as a largely unfinished product and many parts of it do n... ot work properly at all.The packaging of Big Rigs states that the main objective of the game is to race a semi-trailer truck to safety in order to deliver illegal cargo being carried by the vessel, while avoiding the local police force. In actuality, there are no police in the game, no such objectives are presented within the game itself and there is no load attached to the truck. Much of the game instead centers on the player racing their truck against fellow drivers to the finish line; however, in the earlier versions the player's computer-controlled opponent vehicles have no AI and never move from the starting position. In a later version, the computer-controlled opponent will race around the track, but will stop just before crossing the finish line. The timer in the game is merely aesthetic and has no limit on the gameplay   more

Minecraft is certainly over-rated. No Man's Sky is probably going to be better. Still, it's a great game, and while not quite worthy of all the attention it gets, it does not deserve to be on this list.
