This is worse than math frogger.
2008-01-17 10:27:54 PM  
Wow, a librarian simulator. Never would have even considered that for a game.
2008-01-17 10:28:00 PM  
what the hell, plus one for utterly cheesy lameness.
2008-01-17 10:48:56 PM  
Level 3 is quite the surprise.
2008-01-17 10:53:34 PM  
I used to shelve library books for a living so I'm getting a kick out of this whole damn thing.

I found the lack of Farkers bragging about their scores refreshing and then Guelph35 pooched my theorum.

From TFG: "Nice work, but you're not done yet!"

Yeah I am.

Level 1 and 2 were fun, but the real fun starts at level 3.

The worst video game ever was "Desert Bus".

The objective of the game is to drive a bus from Tucson, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada in real time at a maximum speed of 45mph, a feat that would take the player 8 hours of continuous play to complete, as the game cannot be paused.

The bus contains no passengers, and there is no scenery or other cars on the road. The bus veers to the right slightly; as a result, it is impossible to tape down a button to go do something else and have the game end properly. If the bus veers off the road it will stall and be towed back to Tucson, also in real time.

Do they have this for the Wii?
2008-01-17 11:25:57 PM  
Damn you to hell, Subby!!!

2008-01-17 11:35:41 PM  
I want to be a librarian now.

More precisely, I want to burn down a Library now.

/+1 Subby for the find!

Hey, what kind of game is this! I can go to the next level even if I rebelliously miscategorized a book!
2008-01-18 12:10:25 AM  
wow.... et at least e.t. had an alien in it.
2008-01-18 12:13:42 AM  
Level 3 was terribly unpleasant.
2008-01-18 12:17:43 AM  
I am the computer guy for a library, so I am really getting a kick out of...

OK, that is a steaming pile of Hotspur.
2008-01-18 12:21:56 AM  
..I'm still showing this to the librarians.

via my blog(p)...
2008-01-18 12:38:07 AM  
Damn, no hot librarian chick.

Funny game. Lame, but funny.
2008-01-18 12:54:08 AM  
It's the relentlessly upbeat music and gleeful voiceovers that really sell the surreal.
2008-01-18 01:05:44 AM  
I was going to click it so I could declare E.T. still the worst game I've ever played, but that's waaaaaay worse than E.T.
2008-01-18 01:19:55 AM  
I get just a blank white screen?
2008-01-18 01:42:34 AM  
Yeah, this may suck as a game, but its my job. So I'm getting a kick out of this.
2008-01-18 03:37:42 AM  
Damn. I actually made it through level 3 and won the stupid game.

DoctaCheeko: Hey, what kind of game is this! I can go to the next level even if I rebelliously miscategorized a book!

Bzzzt. Lame.

You need to get at least two books to progress to the next level. At least from level two to three. How do I know? Maybe I'll tell ya some day if you're lucky.
2008-01-18 04:06:58 AM  
Nice job! All done!
2008-01-18 04:07:38 AM  
This game gave me a horrible flashback to junior high school. A much hated grammar teacher, otherwise long forgotten, leapt to the fore of my consciousness.

Damn you, Subby!

The subby may be right

About 1.5 seconds after it finished loading, I had to close its Firefox tab, lest I threw a mug through my monitor.... That's how bad it was.
2008-01-18 04:19:39 AM  
Well, I got to level 3 and gave up because my screen is too fuzzy to read the poster. If I'd known you win after level 3 I probably would have finished it. Gives me flashbacks of my old job.
2008-01-18 04:19:40 AM  
As much as this game sucks. I still believe the magic that is Jenga for the Wii is a terrible terrible game.
2008-01-18 04:20:42 AM  
I personally hate you submitter...

I'd forgotten all about the countless Saturdays spending 6 hours making sure books were in the right order for next to nothing...

I'm gonna go cry myself to sleep and thank god i'm done with that

How'd I win? I think it was just trying to make me feel good. But that's impossible.

ladies and gentlemen i direct your attention to "the zoo race"

go ahead i'll wait
2008-01-18 04:25:53 AM  

The best part about Desert Bus is that when you do make it to Las Vegas, you are awarded one point and the option to drive back to Tucson. The scenery is exactly the same and when you reach Tucson again you are awarded another point. The game was made by Penn and Teller in response to the negative public reaction to violent video games.

There is a Japanese video game which I believe is called "Takeshi No Mori" (Takeshi hates video games) which involves virtually impossible challenges. For instance, one level forces you to make a jump that has to be timed accurately to a thousandth of a second to be successful. There is a part that makes you sing a note into the controller (it had a microphone built in) continuously for two hours. And at the end, you have to hit the final boss ten thousand times without being hit once to win the game.
