There’s tons of discussion and articles about worst video games in general, but what exactly is the worst arcade game you ever played?
I don’t even know the name of it, but an arcade I used to frequent had a bizarre thing I’ve only ever seen there and at just that one game but the arcade cabinet had a sign on it that said DOUBLE PLAY. PUT ONE QUARTER IN GET TWO PLAYS. Though when you finally played the game you’d realize why, because nobody would willingly play that game more than once so they had to trick you to do it.
Basically it was your standard arcade cabinet and the game was this third person tank game except with incredibly basic 3D graphics, think battlezone if there were colors but no textures. The combat was also similar to, well, combat for the Atari 2600. You and an AI tank were placed in a small green colored arena with a bunch of obstacles between the two of you and you would just slowly drive to where the enemy tank was, shoot it, and then you destroyed him and the map restarted. It was an ugly, basic, and boring game. It must have been made in the mid-90’s when 3D games were finally hitting it big but all looked ugly as sin. It literally was just Combat for the Atari 2600 but made 3D and they kept the basic color scheme. And no it’s not Cyber Sled, the game was even more basic than that. It just wasn’t fun to play at all and I literally never saw anyone else ever play that game besides me once or twice.
So what are your worst arcade games?
