Awful Games?

Hey all. I enjoy watching really awful movies (the so bad it's good kind) with friends just to completely shit on them for a laugh, and was thinking now would be a good time to move on to shitting on awful games for a laugh. If you could, would you suggest a few 'so bad they're good' video games for me so I have a general starting point?

Side note: I've already slaved through all of Sonic '06 and Ride to Hell Retribution, it was as bad as it sounds.

What a masterpiece that game seems to be, Imma check it out if I can find it

Also for others who read this, I'd also love to take some suggestions of games with terrible voice acting, those are just as marvellous as awful gameplay/glitches

Terrible voice acting? Men of War comes to mind. The English dub for STALKER: Call of Pripyat is also pretty bad: monotonic phoned-in delivery, overly slangy translations of simple phrases, and some egregious mispronunciation of character names.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I've had an Earth Defense Force game sitting on my shelf for ages without even realizing, I'm gonna finally give it a go dude

I love House of the Dead for it's god-awful voice acting, coupled with the games being really enjoyable it just adds to them

Deadly Premonition might fall into this category. Controls quite sluggishly, really bizarre voice acting and not great graphically but makes up for it with a hell of a lot of charm and intrigue.

Those kinds of games can be quite fun to visit, too. Sometimes I prefer messing around with clunkier games and stuff just to get a better understanding of how not to make a game, if the story is good or it has some redeeming qualities that can kinda turn my opinions on it for the better.
