There are just some games that everybody seems to have something against, the critics shoot them down and they're generally considered to kindda blow.
And yet you love it.
We've all played bad games, but some of them, no matter how bad just does something for us or maybe awakens some nostalgia or something!

Now, the very first games I played was by Sierra and when Kings Quest 7 came out I was about 10 years old and this was HUGE!!!
So yeah I developed a special love for it that can't be killed even though as I've grown older I've come ti realize it's probably not as great as I'd like to think...

So. What's your secret shame-game?

Mine is probably Captain Comic.

I've played it for years with my MUM LOL I was 4-6, she fired and I moved that's when I learnt how to use DOS.

Today, it's probably kinda repetitive and graphics aren't top-notch even for the time it was released. But I still love it

I gues there would be quite a few of them really. But the one that sticks out most in my mind is:

Dragon's Lair 2
The game was reated so average and insignificant, it was supposed to be outdated when it came out... But I love it.

Mine would probably be things like digger (digdug?), frogger, alleycat, which were all around when I was young. I don't think there is anything wrong with them so I'm not ashamed of them.

I was playing Leisure Suit Larry original game when I was about 6, but always on the clean level. And I didn't really understand what the game was about. :wub:

Haha, same here.
I always knew it was a cheesy and stupid game but I loved the pretty pictures and always wanted to find a new location just so I could see it.
I still have the game here somewhere.

I played it 5 times but only managed to finish it once.
I once came close to finishing it again but got stuck in that place in the clouds where you had to capture something (its been so long I've forgotten what it was, but you had to harness something)
