Subject: The most retarded game you ever played?

Written By: Southern Image on 08/15/06 at 6:16 pm

I'd have to say that Color Boxes is one retarded game.

I agree with you on that! The scoring is totally backwards on it.


The one game I personally nominate as retarted is "Simpsons"; I played it once and all you do on that game is blast the characters to score points; that seems rather bizarre to me. ::)

Color Boxes should take top prize, but it would be better if the scoring worked

The dumbest game in the arcade has to be a tie between Ameriman and Sk8 Prison.  I am surprisingly good at both games, but they are seriously dumb games

Why are we calling arcade games retarded?

Cos we don't have anything else better to do?

It wasn't the concept of the thread I was questioning; I think there's a ton of dumb games in the arcade.  I was just asking why the word "retarded" was used.

Who holds the first position for Color Boxes?

XD I was about to ask "Can games be retarted?" But SM said something like it, so I see.

Plus, I LOVE Color Boxes. If the scoring were better, I'd be first place! Well, last I checked...

I would love it if only the scoring weren't BACKWARDS. The scoring on there is based on how much time it takes you to pair them all up. That doesn't make sense

Because that was the best word to describe it.  ;D

If you mean to ask who's the real champion of the game, you should check out my avatar. I'm unchallenged since January 26, 2006.

Perhaps you should visit the arcade more often. ;)

I've tried nearly every game in the arcade, but the ones that stand out for me in "retardedness" are Ameriman and Easter Eggs.

Easter Eggs is just plain, old-fashioned, lame.

The old "Pong" games they had, like Odyssey, especially when ball goes the same direction, back and forth repeatedly, because neither person has moved their "paddles". My sister and I played that all of two days and got burned out after that.

Is there a Pong game in the Arcade?

I think there is but it is called something else - and I think Alcohoholica was the one who held the title

I don't think so. Alchoholica deleted his account in November 2005, and the Arcade was launched in January 2006. So he could not have had a taste of the arcade.

Maybe it was AL-B before he erased his account.

I was talking about the Arcade that's on this site...apparently you haven't played any of the games yet.

Tam already pointed out the (Ping) Pong game to me.
