From the community participation from last night
and tonight, it seems that Butmac's suggestion that Rise of the Robots
make it to the list tonight as the entry for a horrible DOS game. I only had experience playing this game on my SNES, and from what I can recall it sucked on that system too. I played my rental copy of the game for a whole couple minutes until I beat the game, then let it collect dust until the rental time was up.
Ok, apparently a giant corporation that makes giant robots makes a robot so smart (HAL9000 are you there, SkyNet is that you?) that it becomes self-aware and decides that it wants all the other robots to rebel against their makers as well. So, somehow the protagonist (ECO35-2 (it's never a good idea to use the letter O in a model number people (cereal!))) is introduced to the factory where all the shit's going down to stop it all before it spreads to the city. Oh NOES!!!
Don't get me wrong, the game looked great, it had an awesome amount of design put into all of the graphics. It's unfortunate that they didnt spend more time making the game any good. In fact, the multiplayer was so one sided due to the increasing difficulty of each robot's stage that someone could dominate by choosing the boss character. I dunno, I didn't really enjoy the game. But according to a Mr. Butmac, it is one of the worst games ever made for the PC.
That does it for another edition of A Weird Kid's Top 10. Sorry that there's no Number 0 tonight. I couldn't find one that fit the criteria that well. However if there's a good one in the comments, I can try to squeeze it in. I hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. As always, let me know if you have a particular top 10 that you'd like to see, and I'd be happy to oblige. And for all of you that have submitted ideas, I promise I'll eventually get around to yours.
