RETRO REBOOT - Dragonball GT Final Bout (PlayStation)

Yeah, I hate Dragonball GT immensely. Even though I don’t even care for DBZ at all anymore, I won’t pretend that I never enjoyed it up to a certain point (the Cell story arc demolished it all for me.

RETRO REBOOT - The Uncanny X-Men (NES)

My list of games I genuinely hate is relatively small compared to, say, movies. Even when it comes to bad video games, I have a soft spot for them because they provide me with some form of amusement. But there's some things I just can't muster that kind of love for, and The Uncanny X-Men is one of the closest things I've found to sheer, unadulterated…
