    This is actually a well put-together wiki. Not only does it list famously panned games, but also a wide variety of other bad video games, both console, PC, iOS or even some obscure browser ones.

    I was afraid of finding a messy, lazily-written jumble (like the inept/incoherent Awful Movies Wiki), but there is effort and passion put into the articles.

    http://crappy-games.wikia.com/wiki/No_Man's_Sky
    http://crappy-games.wikia.com/wiki/Loading_Screen_Simulator

    Not only are there articles on bad video games, but also articles about terrible things related to the game industry:
    http://crappy-games.wikia.com/wiki/Modern_Military_Shooter_genre Aren't you sick of those repetitive FPS games these days?
    http://crappy-games.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Terrible_Moments_in_Gaming_History See all the drama that is hurting the gaming industry! It is GLORIOUS.

    I'm not sure that Loading Screen Simulator should be on there. The entry is so short because there's literally nothing to do in the game. It makes as much sense to make a wiki entry on it as it does to include 'My First Flash Game' uploaded to Newgrounds or one of the FNAF re-skins.

    Actually, perhaps the Spongebob re-skin could be included on the wiki because someone stole the game (which was uploaded as a free-to-play game on another site), posted it on Steam and charged money for it. That's just terrible and a good example of why people hate Steam for it's low barrier to entry and blind eye to the scummy things on the storefront.

    Between not producing games anymore, creating loot boxes, and seemingly being unable to properly moderate their storefront, Valve has certainly fallen from grace. It kind of makes me happy that Half-Life 3 will never be made, because current day Valve would probably give us something worse than Hunt Down The Freeman.

    This is one of the bad sides of this wiki... you can tell at least some of the articles are written by quite young people with some lack of judgment.

    And then there is this:
    http://crappy-games.wikia.com/wiki/Fanboys,_Fangirls_and_Toxic_Fanbases
    Quite hilarious to see the reasons they would have to call such and such fandom "toxic". Even more fun when they feel the need to write it in bold.

    Of course, this and the Chris article are locked.

    The lack of self-awareness from the fursona guy though. It's like these people have no idea what a Mary-sue actually is, get the basic definition of "Perfect at everything and loved by everyone," then they say "I don't want to create a character like that," and they end up going in the exact opposite route, but still ironically end up creating a Mary-sue.

    This is honestly the perfect thing to use to explain why most Mary-sue characters are troubled teenagers with a dark past, or middle-aged men with a dark past, some kind of mental disorder and a substance abuse problem. Really, the solution isn't to go too extreme on one side of the spectrum or too extreme on the other, a mixture of both would be nice. If the fursona was an alcoholic hiding his problem from his loving and wife and kids, the fursona would instantly be a better character than a "Bitter drifter with PTSD struggling with a failing relationship."

    "My character is GOOD because I gave him flaws and character development"
    It don't mean shit if we don't care about the character in the first place.

    Way too many creators/artists/writers are too stuck on their characters rather than what they do with them in stories (if they actually start stories at all).

    I am reminded of Mariotehplumber for some reason.
    "First of all we are going to talk about the most important aspect: the character design!!"

    Speaking of, he also has his page on the Crappy Games Wiki!
