ScrewAttack’s Worst Fighters Ever — where is Killer Instinct?

Oh ScrewAttack, how your Top 10s always take me down Memory Lane, oftentimes to places that I really had no intentions of ever seeing again. Their latest list, the Top 10 Worst Fighters Ever, is no different. There’s no shortage of really horrendous fighters out there, and individual results will vary.

In fact, I was surprised that our very own* Bikini Karate Babes 2 didn’t make the cut. Secondly, Killer Instinct should have been included. I loathe it. Thirdly, I also take offense to anyone sullying the name of Primal Rage. I don’t know about the SNES or Sega Genesis versions, but the PC port was a nice supplement to Mortal Kombat as far as satiating my 8-year-old bloodlust went. It is very likely, however, that I’m looking at Primal Rage with the rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia. Or that 8-year-olds have really bad taste in games.

I’ll be the first to admit that really bad 16-bit fighters hold a special place in my heart. I fondly remember  Saturday Night Slam Masters (SNES), TMNT: Tournament Fighters (Sega Genesis), Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers (Genesis), and BioFreaks (N64). Kids these days …

So, do you guys agree with ScrewAttack’s list? What are some of the really horrendous games that you guys played as children (or last week)?
