Redline 1999 fps shooter mostly because the controls sucked then, and the controls still suck now. Could have been a good game if it weren't for the horrible controls.

Timesplitters 2, the aiming then was new but now it's so old and it's too hard to aim and the A.I are idiotic and too easy.

Sonic Adventure 1 had two really problematic glitches. There were some areas where Sonic or whoever would get stuck to the ground while doing the falling animation. You wouldn't be able to jump, only move slowly off the glitchy spot. I found one in Station Square, Mystic Ruins, and Windy Valley. I didn't see the glitch in Adventure DX though so I guess they fixed it later on. Also Sonic's homing attack seems to work only when it wants to. You'll really notice it when you fight the Egg Viper.
Sonic Adventure 2 also had that problem with the homing attack, but there weren't any bosses that required you to hit multiple targets to reach its weakpoint.

Yeah, Sonic Adventure has its fair amount of glitches and annoyances. I remember being stuck in a tunnel at the main town. The falling through the ground glitch was insane.

Jet Force Gemeni.

I played the shit out of that game as a kid but the control scheme feels so terrible now because 3rd and 1st person shooters have come so far.

Tried playing Snowboard Kids.. everything about it was awful. We had so much fun with this when we were kids..

On the contrary I recently played Banjo Kazooie again and I think it's the pinnacle of "aged well".

Totally agree, loved it as a child but now it's unplayable.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but King's Quest 1....

It kinda drops you, with only a shopping list from a king and many ways to die.

And, if you play the original, it gets kinda exhausting having to type everything...

I still love it to death.

don't forget about the move wrap and most games that tried to be a great 3d adventure all look awful besides a few nowadays.
