Allegedly the worst video game of all time, according to wikipedia. :thumbup:

That was close. You managed 27/30, which I think is second best in recent times. :clap:

That was such an interesting and sad story. The guy was a bright-eyed kid who had some early successes and made it all the way to Spielberg's office. He failed on the promise of delivering a product in a timeframe dictated by holiday marketing schedules rather than the reality of how much time it was going to take, working in a medium that nobody understood, blasting through a haze of stimulants and sleep deprivation to get what was supposed to be the hottest home video game of all time out the door.

It ended in a landfill monument to the suits demanding the impossible of the techbros and the techbros getting star-struck or pressured into saying yes-sir and then failing.
