The code that didn't work really made people mad though! I'd buy that for a dollar! :D

I voted for BC racers as the worst. Funny thing, I kind of liked BC racers, I mean all the elements for a great kart racer are there, but it was just too choppy frame wise. Then I picked up a Genesis/SCD/32X system that came with BC racers. It's the exact same game as the 3DO version, but GOOD. The frame rate and control are amazing and 1000% inprovement over the 3DO version, and the graphics were identical. It's a shame the 3DO version was so bad when the pitiful 32X's version rules. If you have a 32X, I recommend BC racers.

Am I the only one who voted for plumbers? :o This game (and I use the term in the "loosest" sense) was so bad, I sold my copy (and I own most all 3DO garbage, BC Racers included) C'mon, I'm sure there must be others who recognize this title for the trash that it is. Oh, and since I am still technically a newlywed, I do most certainly love women ... I mean my wife.

Man that game sucked, but still not as much as to surpass BC racer, thats the videogame equivalent to a heroin overdose.

Thanks. I have been slowly winning my wife over to the 3DO cause. (can't ever let her catch me w/a title like 'plumbers' though)

Talk about your loaded questions...

For my money... yeah, let me explain this. I played BC Racers on the SegaCD, where gameplay was considered more optional than on a lot of the lesser 3DO games, so BC Racers didn't come off as especially bad compared to some of those little nuggets. PDWT had a blonde running around in her skivvies, sure enough, but it was a nasty little piece of five lines of code that somebody thought constituted a game. It was less interactive than Tender Loving Care, and that means something.

So no, I DO love women... but considering the limited intellect of the Sega Genesis w/ cd unit, I'd rate BC Racers higher until I play a 3DO version.

Really though, if the design theory around that time was more than ports... if there had been a killer ap racer from some other company, we might be playing on our M3s today.

Here is another old poll to revive. And since there was a fairly recent review of this title, I thought it was worth doing.

Somebody, PLEASE join me in voting this game worst on 3DO! I can't be the only way who thinks BC Racers is better ...

I'm voting for Doom on the 3do - this was unforgivable - ported by a team well out of their depth and it made us the laughing stock of the gaming community

Stick a blind man in front of Doom and they may enjoy the soundtrack. Stick a blind man in front of 'Plumbers' ... well, you see where I am going w/this.

It's kinda funny, in the thread I started of the 5 worst 3DO games, Plumbers got multiple votes, yet BC Racer only got one. Even stranger, I was the one who had BC Racer in the list ... :?

I think the "I don't like women" line in the poll skewed the results. Recount, hanging chad! :P

I think you will find that 3DOkid style election rigging is all above board. You could vote for Plumbers, and we would all understand you prefer to watch pudgy little animated characters, than a women in stockings and suspenders. :wink: And we wouldn't hold it against anyone.

BC Racers may have won the electoral college, but Plumbers has the popular vote ...

I am going to take this fight all the way to the convention! :twisted:

According to 3DOKid Top 50 it is the #1 game on 3DO.
I played BC Racers only on Mega CD - it s a joke: Drive, "steer" and hit the opponents.
it is the ultra light edition of Road Rash Trash.

Actually, if I remember right, the code doesn't show a heck of alot more than the regular game does, so I don't think you are missing much of anything.

Are you tying it on Freedo or something? It worked on my old fz-1 back in the day.

I'm sorry to resurrect an old topic, but I wasn't around here the last time this post made it's rounds. I've had my 3DO since just after launch, and never played Plumbers until yesterday. Good...god...

Now I must rant...

Look, I know BC Racers wasn't a great game, hell it wasn't a good game, but back in the day, if you got wasted enough, you could play it. You could play it and have a damn good time, in fact. I whole-heartedly concede the point that it was the act of getting completely shit-faced that made it playable. I suppose it was a matter of "syncing" yourself up with the horrible frame rate...slow the brain down until the frame rate looks right. I spent many a late night getting trashed and playing BC Racers with friends, and I have no regrets. I'm sure the game would be nearly unplayable while completely sober. I haven't even tried it. The point is that BC Racers did have some value to some people at some point.

Plumbers Don't Wear Ties on the other hand, is and always will be the worst pile of crap that was ever made in any format...ever. For Christ's sake, just look at it. I couldn't make anything that bad if I tried. Honestly, if I were trying to make a bad game, something would end up being fun, funny, or interesting, if only by accident. This game doesn't even have any accidental value. Nothing. If I would have paid for this, I would have taken it back the same day...no matter how far I had to drive.

If anyone reading this thinks for a second that I'm being harsh, you obviously have never played this "game", or maybe you just need electro-shock therapy. Here...I'll sum it up for you:

You watch completely uninteresting still photos of a coked-out D-Movie skank and a gay porn star, and occasionally you're asked by a nearly incomprehensible asian woman to make a decision about how these uninteresting people will spend their morning. If you've gotten more than 2 "decisions" in, and haven't yet turned off the game, there may be no doctor that can help your particular condition.

Now I've recently adopted the policy of downloading a rom of a 3DO game to check it out before I find a copy to buy, so I didn't pay money for this attrocity. Even still, if I ever have the opportunity to meet the stammering nitwit that was responsible for this game, I would feel it was my responsibility to kick him square in the nuts, and proclaim: "This is for everyone in the world who's ever owned a 3DO." Then I would make him submit a written apology to us all, and I would post it on this board for all of you.

-Smacker

P.S. If any of you think for even a second that a picture of a skanky girl is enough to add any value to this pile of crap, I sincerely urge you to open a browser window, and search google images for the term "chick". There...I just found you 9 pictures of baby chickens, and 3-5 pictures of better looking girls. You're welcome.

I take onboard evereything you said. But when I see a woman in suspenders it makes me smile. I see 5FPS it makes the baby jesus cry. That's all I'm saying.

A big welcome to 3DOSmacker who clearly is a bright chap when it comes to 3DO's cancerous growth (otherwise known as 'Plumbers')

I agree wholeheartedly! :)

Hey Trev, thanks for the warm welcome.

Incidentally, I tried popping in BC Racers again for the first time in years, and although I was still able to win most of the races, I found that it gave me horrible motion sickness. I get that every now and again with some first person shooters, but this was pretty bad. Anyone else out there suffer motion sickness while gaming?

Just to be clear though, I don't care if a game causes bleeding from the eyes, irritable bowl syndrome, or spontaneous human combustion, I still can't rate anything below Plumbers!!!...(which has been known to cause all three) :wink:

I'll say it again - plumbers as bad as it was - was not as bad as doom!
Why do I hear you say?
Plumbers was never meant to be anything other than an adolescent boys powerpoint presentation.
Doom however had been around for nearly 2 years by the time 3do got it.3do's hardware was full of tricks unavailable to even most pc's.It was a game that many judged system power by - and what did we get?
C R A P
Unforgiveable - it was a title we should have been able to rub detractors noses in.
Doom should have delivered at least at PC specs
Plumbers was what it was and didnt pretend
there's crap and then there's C R A P
BC racers was a lazy port as well and I only just rate it higher than doom at least it came from inferior pedigree.
I feel the same about movies - a B movie giving you exactly what it says it will is far better than a blockbuster with higher production values that leaves you cheated/disappointed after parting with your money
