Worst of 2004 Awards

Worst...games...ever.


Yes, it's THAT bad.

1. Sprung (DS)

You turn it on thinking it's a game for your Nintendo DS. It looks like a game. It feels like a game. It smells really bad, but you figure most games smell bad, so it must smell like a game, right?

Except it is not a game. It is Sprung, and it is the Worst Game of 2004 because it has turned your DS into a LIE.

To truly appreciate the sheer ineptitude of Sprung, you have to understand the very elements that constitute something being a video game. It must have things to do. It must make you accomplish increasingly difficult tasks and reward you for your efforts. In short, it must contain gameplay.

Sprung is bereft of these qualities, instead presenting the unsuspecting gamer with an 'interactive story' ripped straight out of Saved By The Bell: The College Years. Provided you have the audacity to stare at this train wreck of a game for longer than an instant, you'll figure out that you read Sprung - you do not play it. Repeat: You do not play it.

But ultimately, even this sad story has a happy ending. If you're going to be bad at something, might as well be the Worst. Our hats off to the winner!
