List of commercial failures in video gaming

As a hit-driven business, the great majority of the video game industry's software releases have been commercial failures. In the early 21st century, industry commentators made these general estimates: 10% of published games generated 90% of revenue; that around 3% of PC games and 15% of console games have global sales of 100,000+ a year, with even this level insufficient to make high-budget titles profitable; and that about 20% of games make a profit.Some of these have drastically changed the video game market since its birth in the late 1970s. For example, the failures of E.T. and Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 contributed to the video game crash of 1983. Some games, despite being commercial failures, are well received by certain groups of gamers and are considered cult games. Many of these games live on through emulation.

List of films considered the best

This is a list of films considered "the best ever", so voted in a national or international survey of either critics or the public.

Some surveys focus on all films, while others focus on a particular genre or country. Voting systems differ from poll to poll: some surveys suffer from biases such as self-selection or skewed demographics, while others may be susceptible to forms of interference such as vote-stacking.

List of video games in the Museum of Modern Art

A number of video games were selected by the Museum of Modern Art, located in New York City, as part of its permanent collection. These games were chosen by the Museum of Modern Art in order to showcase design elements within them. Fourteen initial games were announced in November 2012, with plans to expand the collection to up to forty games over time, as the museum is able to acquire the display rights for them. Six more games were added to the collection in June 2013, as well a game console.

Curated by Paola Antonelli, the collection was included in the exhibition Applied Design in the Philip Johnson Architecture and Design Galleries. In these galleries, around a hundred objects that represent contemporary design were displayed. Most games in the collection are playable on some level and all are displayed in a manner to minimize the influence of nostalgia.

List of video games notable for negative reception

The following video games are noted for their negative reception. They include games that won ironic and humorous awards (such as Golden Mullet Awards), games that have been listed as the "worst" by major video gaming publications or websites, games that have received low review scores from such publications (often determined by low aggregate scores on sites such as Metacritic), and games that have been recognized to be poorly received by players. Some of the older or rarer games have gained attention more recently through videos produced by popular YouTube personalities, such as Angry Video Game Nerd. Games can be considered bad for a number of reasons, including but not limited to: low quality or outdated graphics, large numbers of glitches, or having poor controls.

The list below is not comprehensive, but represents the most visible examples of games with negative reception. With some exceptions, the list below omits licensed tie-in games for movies or television shows, which are generally accepted as shovelware by the industry and not expected to have high production values. For similar reasons, the list also omits indie games, which are developed by smaller teams that typically lack the ability for full quality control of their product, as well as mobile games, of which there are thousands of developers with the ability to self-publish on app stores and frequent copycats of more successful titles driven by unpopular microtransactions. This list excludes games that are subject of short-term review bombing that are unrelated to gameplay aspects.
