A list of the ten absolute worst video games based on TV shows. No matter how popular the TV series that inspires them, games based on shows tend to be terrible, whether because they're boring, weird, tough to play, or just fundamentally misconceived.
Licensed games tend to be bad and licensed games based on television shows tend to be even worse. Occasionally, a South Park: The Stick of Truth comes along and overturns the conventional wisdom, but usually, even shows that seem like they would make great games result in unplayable messes. When Superman gets an awful game, how can shows like American Idol or Home Improvement result in anything but gaming disaster?If it's on this list, it's one of the worst games based on TV shows in the history of video games. One of the ten worst, specifically. Vote up the most frustratingly terrible and pointless video games inspired by TV shows below!
Superman 64 (based on Superman: The Animated Series) took the most powerful superhero in the universe and tasked him with an impossibly herculean task: flying through rings. That's it. No, really.Pretty much the entire game involved flying around Metropolis (a city besieged by fog), periodically steering through floating rings. Occasionally you had to pick up and throw a car, but if you failed that mission you would have to go back to flying through more rings. No wonder it's considered one of the worst games of all time.
