There have always been games that were, well, not that good. Shitty, some could say. They have awful graphics, terrible sounds, riddled with bugs and are downright unplayable. But sometimes you know a game is bad and still play it, be it for the unintentional hilarity, intriguing plot or the awesomeness. This thread is devoted to these games.

My terrible game is named Werevolves of London (no relation to the song, I think). The game's plot is as follows: A lycanthropy curse was placed upon you, so you change into a werewolf each night. To get rid of the curse, you have to find and eat eight members of the family that cursed you.
The game was poorly implemented (obviously). The controls are stiff, you can get easily lost because of the bland graphics, finding the targets is almost impossible, the list goes on. But even though the game was damn near unplayable, I still played it. Why? Well, you get to kill and eat innocent bystanders. What else would you want?
Yes, the game idea was awesome enough for me to work on its own. Granted, it certainly deserved a much better design, but hey, At least I have a topic for a thread. Your turn.

I've recently stumbled upon a little flash game that has such convoluted controls that it's nearly impossible to play. Maybe that was the point, maybe it was just bad design, I don't know. But a flash game has never made me laugh so hard.

It's called QWOP, and you play a guy at the olympics doing the 100m dash. You use four different buttons to control his calves and thighs to attempt to make him run. The sheer ineptitude as you flail around trying to figure out what to do amuses me to no end. Problem is, I eventually figured it out and it's no fun anymore.

I mentioned it on this thread. The download link is now gone. I have played this game with a few other people, they either said it was okay or they said it sucked. It's an extremely low-budget dungeon crawler that I will always love, despite being at the same level as a mediocre Flash game today.
