Steam Greenlight is a great way for indie developers to get their games off the ground. It has generated some really good titles, but it has generated a LOT of really, really bad ones too. Here I have cataloged a few of the worst ones based off the game’s description and screenshots submitted by the developer. I have also included the best Steam user comments on these games, as some of these people are hilarious in their own right. These articles are 100% biased and unfair and I have no issue with that.
Hey, remember when that one Vietnamese dude (his name is “Dong” lol) made that mediocre and frustrating game where the object was to fly a bird between stolen Mario sprites? Remember when he basically went insane after it became incredibly popular and ranted on Twitter about it and then deleted the game off the App Stores? Oh, and remember when that one guy made a Kickstarter to help him make Potato Salad and raised over 40,000 USD in like two days? Yeah, I wish I could relive those times again too. What is that? I CAN relive those two MASSIVE events in world history? Wait a second, I can even PLAY those two events? Sign me up! This is just a game that ripped off a game that ripped off its graphics from another game and then added some Internet meme that we will all forget about in a week.

As a major fan of Pony World 1 and 2 I could not wait for the third installment of this smash hit series to come out! Oh, and before ANYTHING is said: the Pony World series is NOT a ripoff of My Little Pony! My Little Pony is about cute little horses who wander about in some magical land and can turn into princesses or something. Pony World is totally different and I will Internet-fight anyone to the death for saying otherwise! Pony World has five, yes FIVE, magical worlds to explore with a beautiful, non-sexual pony that people totally do not fantasize about riding at night right before falling asleep. I mashed that “vote” button instantly upon seeing this game!

I will be honest and say I do not even know what this game is supposed to be about. The title does not even make sense and I am not even sure it is in English, there is a bunch of random letters all over the screen shots, and the description lists it as a “shootmeup” game. I do not even think that is an actual genre and this game was created by someone with schizophrenia and needs to seek psychiatric help immediately. Anyone with the location of developer “terop” should call 911 immediately as he may be a threat to himself and others. If he is locked up he will at least stop working on this dreadful looking “game.”
