Whats your UGLIEST game?

Recommended Posts

I mean fuh-nasty....torn label, stained label, missing label, etc. We have to remember these were not always reverenced with respect. I remember clearly riding around on my Huffy from Best Company with a cart in my back pocket. I am not alone I am sure.

 

So either describe or show us your WORST. Either from back in the day or the ones you added later.

 

I don't have a pic but my ABSOLUTE worst is a PAL copy of Stronghold. You say "hey, thats a rare game" right? Yeah. Looks like a truck used it as a brake pad. Rough shape. Home made label on one of those plastic pop up letter sticker makers....

Maze Craze. Complete with silver paint and mud. I don't know if this is my ugliest, but I was just using it to test my VGA board so I had it handy. How does this even happen?

Are you sure that isn't an ET pulled from the infamous landfill? :)

Yeah, I'm sure it's Maze Craze. Though some of the....stuff...on it looks like the cart might have been pulled from E.T. himself.

 

"Hey E.T. Let's play A GAME OF COPS AND ROBBERS!"

 

"Elllliiioooootttt....don't touch me! E.T. phone police! E.T. phone police!"

Ice Hockey. Complete with custom label that I made some 20+ years ago. This was a hand-me-down from my step-brother who also carved "Ice Hockey" into the plastic with a knife.

Here are my three grossest carts. They are very sticky and have gross stuff stuck to them. I think they are all combat, but I never had the courage to plug them in (they could be Airworld protos for all I know :ponder: ).

Look, this one has a dead spider on it:

These are probably the ugliest carts i own since the late 80's. We treated our carts pretty bad back in the day. :D

I wish i knew which of my "friends" wrote the F-word on my Air-Sea Battle... :x

Ugliest... carts... ever. Seriously, these are the worst no-label-ripped-off carts I've seen.

LOL! Yep, those poor carts went through several hands and each owner left his "marks" on them. And i have a few more like those, just found another pic on my HD. Fortunately all the carts still work (though Spider Fighter is a bit flaky).

My worst looking one from back in the day is Suicide Mission. It's really not that bad, but it's the one from my original collection that looks a little less mint than the rest.

 

All my carts have labels on them with little to no handwritten marks. Even if I had to make the labels, they are there. I messed up making the end label for Jungle hunt, and it's too short. My Crackpots cart has a small tear in the top label. The absolute worst looking cart I have is Beany Bopper with two large rips on the front label, a spot torn off the end label, and no board inside it. I use it solely for keeping dust out of my 2600.

 

I've got a few Activision and PBtitles that look pretty horrible from the plaque, and I've got a Planet Patrol that's missing some ink from the top label. Here's a Jedi Arena that I got with no label on it. I found the actual label for it in the bottom of a box of games at the flea market. It looks like the label was soaked in bleach or something, as you can see right through the gray areas.

 

Oh, wait, I know what my worst cart is...it's the Fishing Derby I shattered by accident. Just looking at it normally it looks mint, but if you look down by the connector, there are large spiderwebs of cracks I glued back together. It was broken into about ten pieces.

Simply unbearable to look at.

It used to be my night-of-the-living-thrift find Freeway, which had actiplaque, spiderplaque, cirgaretteplaque, sharpieplaque, dirtplaque, glueplaque, and unidentifiable-but-possibly-disgusting-white-smear-plaque all at the same time. I bought it because I felt sorry for it.

 

My Atari screamed and spit it out, so I had to get another one :P

Yeah, at least you still keep them. I remember to trashed many atari carts when I bought one sega master system in 1989...

Today I have problems on my conscience.

:P
