This is a list of video games in the fictional world that were considered the worst. These include games that have won ironic and humorous awards, was ranked the worst by gaming magazines and websites, low review scores on Metacritic or GameRankings, or were poorly received by players. Some of these games have appeared in Angry Video Game Nerd, a hybrid live-action anime series produced by Cinemassacre and Drillimation Studios. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as low quality or outdated graphics, large amounts of glitches, or having poor controls. Other reasons include relying on in-app purchases, few content, or "dead" servers.

NOTE: This is only for fictional games. Real games have their own Wikipedia article.


Touhou Gensou Rondo: Bullet Ballet (2006)

Touhou Gensou Rondo: Bullet Ballet was a Touhou Project fangame and a third-person fighting/shooter game released in 2006 as part of the Play, Doujin! program on Steam and consoles, and was a launch title for the Nintendo Wii. The game was basically a precursor to Senko no Ronde, and the same engine was used for that game. The game was panned by critics with criticism being aimed for a long tutorial, very few single-player content, bland backgrounds, and a "completely dead" online multiplayer mode, with few players rarely appearing. The game currently holds a 33% on Metacritic based on 44 reviews.

Critics also noted an in-game prompt asking for "Five-star ratings will help us give you free updates!", suggesting Drillimation would stop giving them new content if the game did not get enough high ratings. This led to widespread criticism of Drillimation manipulating the game's score on storefronts. Susumu Takajima apologized for this in an article for The Sydney Morning Herald, claiming this to be a shame for the gaming industry.
