I would have to throw my vote in for "ps2: Gettin' Up! CE!"

Produced by Mark Ecko, based on spray taggin' your marks on concrete walls and anywhere else possible. The game is terrible....

From the crappy tutorial that teaches you how to do stuff you already do like walk forward in every other game to the impossible feat of teaching yourself to use their chinzy control physics to steer your guy around the mounds of untouchable landscape just so you can learn to climb a wall and how to properly put a ficticous tag in a spot no one is gonna look anyways....

Just terrible! [but it comes with a cool art book that you can use to practice your tags]

Sad part is that it probably sold a shit load of copies due to having Mark Ecko on the cover. Much like that shitty 50 cent game.

The battle modes were much more creative than MK64, and in my opinion, so were the main tracks. The fact that you can choose between 3 vehicles makes it even better!

Same here! I wish DKRDS had the exact same characters as the original, but of course Banjo and Conker couldn't be used. >_>

I'd consider picking it up if it had Wi-Fi. Does anyone know if it does?

Yup, it certainly does. And a track editor! :D

Here's ones I remeber being highly touted but fell flat. Some of the ones I listed are on PC also. A lot of the games aren't that bad but were over hyped or hurt their franchise's name.

Xbox:
Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon
Kabuki Warriors
Brute Force
Azurik: Rise Of Perathia
Drake of the 99 Dragons

Gamecube:
Charlie's Angels (I think it was only exclusive in the US)
Die Hard: Vendetta (also us exclusive only)

PS2:
Hidden Invasion
Evergrace
Unlimited SaGa

Dreamcast:
Max Steel: Covert Missions
Time Stalkers (wouldn't be so bad if it didn't have the stalker franchise attached)
Industrial Spy: Operation Espionage

N64:
Daikatana
AeroFighters Assault (if Aero Fighters wasn't in the title it would be okay)
Castlevania

PS1:
Mortal Kombat: Special Forces
Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22
C: The Contra Adventure
007 Tomorrow never dies

Saturn:
VIRTUAL HYDLIDE
Cyber Speedway
Hang On GP

Jaguar:
White Men can't Jump
Cybermorph

3DO:
Way of the Warrior

32X:
Cosmic Carnage

Sega CD:
Blackhole Assault (US Exclusive...I think)
INXS - Make My Video

SNES:
Wayne’s World

Neo Geo AES:
Ninja Combat

Genesis:
Chakan the Forever Man
Heavy Nova

Turbo Grafx-16:
Double Dungeons

EDIT:
Since people have a hard time reading or understanding what I meant. I repeat some of the ones I listed are on PC, furthermore When I say it was exclusive in the US I am meaning that it was only an exclusive title in the US market but not other markets, like pal and NTSC-j. Are Ack and limewater the only ones who read and could understand?

But he said a few of those were also on the PC. Daikatana did have a Game Boy Color release, but it's a completely different genre.

Admittedly I've heard if you actually read the manual, the game makes a lot more sense. I used to play it at a neighbor's house as a kid, and I didn't think it was as bad as some folks have said...but then again, I think a lot of games that get trashed aren't as bad as people say.
