29th Place - 9th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2003)

Call this game "Insultatron." Its purpose is to insult you in as many ways as possible, though not with a great deal of creativity. If that sounds like fun to you, than you'll probably love the game. If not, then you're like me.

Most standard verbs are implemented, and result in insulting you.
Why three stars? The game is polished. It is very descriptive in its insults. And it succeeds in producing an emotional reaction.
But the interactivity is bkring, and I would not play it again. I do not recommend this. Includes frequent strong profanity.
The 'story' involves you, who the game describes as "a fat lardo," finds a rubber ducky. THATS ABOUT IT. You can pick it up, squeeze it, drop it, nibble it, jump (a refreshing breath since I've been longing to get a response from that for years). You can't go anywhere, do anything "as far as I know" or really have any fun with this.
If you are in the mood for some language and lols,play it for a few minutes, but this game is no Emily Short.

Camp/"So Bad It's Good" by Ivanr
It might seem strange that a video game, which relies on consistent and effortful coding in order to deliver any kind of experience, could be "so bad it's good" in the way that an Ed Wood movie is. But it can happen, as this list...
