Red Letter Day?

I uninstalled Neverwinter Nights 1 last Wednesday night. Does that qualify as a red letter day of some sort.

Definitely weird, it's been on my CPU for a while.

NWN2 is of course still installed.

Worst game ever?

A friend of mine pointed out this game and the following youtube clip. It's a game called 'Big Rigs'. Apparently it's one of the lowest rated games every and some have given it the dubious title of 'worst game ever'. I've never played it but it looks pretty bad.

If you can get it to run, which is supposedly quite difficult, it's barely playable. Note the following in the video:

* Missing walkmesh on the bridge
* Going 160 MPH in a circle (rotating)
* Stopping rotation on a dime.
* Driving through buildings.
* Driving stright up a sheer cliff.
* Driving off the edge of the world.

I'm told you can't die and the only challenge is trying to find the finish line.
