Terrible Old Games You’ve Probably Never Heard Of is a full-colour illustrated compendium of the most painfully bad games, based on Ashens’ YouTube series of the same name. Everyone’s heard of E.T. for the Atari 2600 and Superman for the Nintendo 64, but these are almost nothing next to the abject incompetence of Count Duckula 2 on the Amstrad CPC. There are people who seriously believe that Shaq Fu is the worst fighting game ever made, having never experienced Dangerous Streets on the Amiga. This book will blow their very soul apart. (Not a guarantee.) Terrible Old Games You’ve Probably Never Heard Of is meticulously researched and written, with the dry humour you’d expect from a man who has somehow made a living by sticking rubbish on a sofa and talking about it. Each entry is accompanied by a series of full-colour images from the games.
