Amen to Rise of the Robots, that game had me so pumped off its graphics and sound when I rented it and turned out to be the most unplayable fighter ever.

Some more contenders:

Action 52 (NES): 52 ATROCIOUS games, many of which are buggy to the point of crashing, packed onto 1 $199 cartridge

AD&D Heroes of the Lance (NES): without a doubt the worst RPG ever

Pit Fighter (SNES): challenger for the crap fighter crown currently adorning the head of "Rise"

Journal Journal: Curbing Slashdot Abuse 1

Like many web based discussion boards, Slashdot has a small vocal minority of abusive and disruptive users. Many of these users spend hours online attempting to harass and provoke normal Slashdot users.
