Terrible Games From A Terrible Year 54

Posted by Zonk
from the newspeak dept.
1up is running an article written by the ever amusing SeanBaby, wherein he write about some of the worst games from the worst year in gaming. The year was 1984, and the U.S. videogaming industry was close to non-existence. What was released, then, left a lot to be desired. From the article: "Snacks N' Jackson - In this game, you play the part of a clown's head attached to a 4-foot tentacle neck. Your nose detaches itself from your face, and it's the rest of your clown face's job to keep it from bouncing through the window behind you. Also, you have to tentacle your head around to eat levitating breakfast foods. The strange name Snacks N' Jackson was a last-minute replacement of the original title, What Hitler Sees When He Closes His Eyes."

    I watched "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" the other day to learn more about Arthurian legends. I came away thinking that the movie wasn't very informative and could have been done better. If you didn't think the article was funny, that's fine (I thought it was some of Seanbaby's worst), but don't criticise it for not being a well-written thesis on video game history.

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
