My dad told me once when I was young
"Never buck heads with an engineer."

He then told me how he was on shore leave in Spain and managed to get drunk at a bar (imagine that). He was Air Force demo expert amongst other things. Anyway, some MP's showed up to break up the bar brawl he and a buddy had started. After they tossed him out of the bar, he came back about 15 minutes later and drove a bulldozer through the bar, leaving it in shambles. One of the patrons of the bar, was the then Spanish King, who's arm was broken in this ruckuss.

The King told him that he, nor any of his family could no longer step foot on Spanish soil for eternity. He was carried away in shackles and returned to USAF. Funny thing was, the USAF didn't even prosecute him. I guess thats the kinky side of nickering with nukes. The USAF also told him never to set foot on Spanish soil again.

One day I plan to goto Spain and find out.

For me, the worst game ever was Masters of Orion III. I loved the first two and was really looking forward to number 3, but they ruined it in a big way

AI was the saddest piece of crap i have ever seen, constant crashes and other glitches. I still go back to MOO1 when i feel like relaxing for 30min.

The most frustrating and horrible game of all time!! That and *cough* World of Warcraft *cough*

LOL, it is the one and only reason that people are to this day cringing every time a movie licensed game is on the way. But to be fair, this trend has continued till this very day. Moral of the story is most mivie tie in games are balls.

wow, some of those atari games were atrocious! I do remember giggling playing Sam Fox strip poker on the 64 though!

I really cant remember my worst game though - I have been thinking about it everytime I see the thread - BC Bill on the 64 was pretty bad, but because it was my first game I thought it was ok. man, waiting 10minutes for it to load on casette was hard though.

Yes It would seem we both had the same pack-in tape set.
BC Bill, Space Invaders etc.
However despite its somewhat atrocious collision detection, BC Bill was a great game, and as all tape games took forever to load, it doesn't make much difference that it was on tape

*edit* Thinking back Arcadia was the worst of the games in that pack heh.
