Lame videogame spin-offs

4) Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures

From toplessrobot, It's a total failure. Ignoring everything that made the original game a cultural phenomenon, the SNES and Sega Genesis' The New Adventures is more akin to the horrible '80s cartoon, following Pac-Man in his hometown, wandering about trying to perform chores like getting milk for his baby or picking a flower for his wife. Even if that sounds vaguely entertaining, the player has no control over Pac-Man -- he wanders about like a drunk, insane baby, while the player tries desperately to focus his attention with a slingshot. It can be cartoonishly entertaining, but Pac-Man? It is not.

While I know the source games, I know nothing about any of these spin-offs. Nevertheless, this list is pretty funny. I'll try to watch some of the movies later, but for now I loved this comment on Megaman Soccer:

"...And why does completing the Capcom Championship mode reward me with a banner that says 'CONGARTULATIONS?'"
