Terrible Old Games You’ve Probably Never Heard Of is a full-colour illustrated compendium of the most painfully bad games, based on Ashens’ YouTube series of the same name.Everyone’s heard of E.T. for the Atari 00 and Superman for the Nintendo 64, but these are almost nothing next to the abject incompetence of Count Duckula 2 on the Amstrad CPC. There are people who seriously believe that Shaq Fu is the worst fighting game ever made, having never experienced Dangerous Streets on the Amiga. This book will blow their very soul apart. (Not a guarantee.)Terrible Old Games You’ve Probably Never Heard Of is meticulously researched and written, with the dry humour you’d expect from a man who has somehow made a living by sticking rubbish on a sofa and talking about it. Each entry is accompanied by a series of full-colour images from the games.

About The Author

Stuart Ashen makes videos for YouTube and writes comedy scripts and sometimes acts in things. He lives in Norwich, in a house filled with all sorts of useless items that he tells himself he needs for work. He is obsessed with old video games and things that aren't quite good enough for their intended purpose. On his YouTube channel he reviews the best of the worst tat that the world has to offer, showing an equal amount of commitment and enthusiasm for both.
He has produced over 440 YouTube videos over an eight-year period. In 2013 he raised $73,000 for the production of a feature film Ashens and the Quest for the GameChild starring Warwick Davis and Robert Llewellyn. The film has been watched over 500,000 times on YouTube and is also available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
