Video games were created for entertaining and learning reasons, so technically when you hear “Video Games”, you immediately think of something fun, adventurous, smart, challenging, and we probably expect them to be all of these at once.
But according to critics, there are some video games that are so bad you won’t even be able to play them for more than 15 minutes.
So, if you are looking for a new game to get addicted to, we highly advise you to stay away from the ones we have listed in this article, unless you want to try them and experience the “horribleness” yourself. In that case, be my guest!
