First person shooter games have enjoyed a long and profitable run, churning out billion-dollar franchise darlings such as Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2: Ancient Warfare 1, Call of Cthulhu's Duty, and whatever other Call of Duty sequels I may have forgotten. Unfortunately, nobody seems to recall the less popular FPS titles, which might be one reason why they are considered "less popular." Today we'll take a look at the 17 most awful FPS games we've played this year, which can easily be considered the most awful FPS games ever, assuming an alien race starts immediately carpet bombing our planet and prevents additional individuals from continuing this horrid trend of garbage. This list comes courtesy of our Youtube channel, Video Game Abominations Broadcasting.

Like always, you can keep up with the worst games ever by subscribing to our Youtube channel. We highly recommend it, and we're not just saying that because we're really biased and also want a lot of money.

#17: "Rotten Prison"

The most least worst of our games wins the distinctive prize of "actually being entertaining," by way of including a ludicrously overpowered shotgun and insanely designed enemies. Would you like to explore the violent, weird mind of a highly damaged 13-year old boy who has apparently suffered several million strokes that interrupted his ongoing asphyxiation? Welcome to the exciting and strange world of "Rotten Prison," a virtual jail packed full of disfigured cartoon characters, crying babies, and urine-soaked keys!  It's everything you could ever want, assuming you've set the bar pretty low, want-wise.

#16: "Dystopia"

Okay, I've got to admit I have absolutely no idea what's happening in this game, but I willingly give it credit for happening at such a fast speed. Travel through the exotic world of [WHATEVER] as a [SOME STUPID NAME] soldier who must travel at 400 miles an hour, shooting everything that moves and many things that don't. It's like crushing up Adderall and dumping it into a fishbowl full of Monster Energy Drinks, chugging the concoction to wash away the bitter taste of all that meth you just smoked. CHECKPOINT!

#15: "Save Captain Kirk!"

Captain Kirk is in trouble and requires saving! Are you a bad enough redshirt to free the world's most eligible space bachelor from his filthy mud-encrusted prison? We sure as hell weren't, and subsequently gave up after 10 minutes or so. This exciting, banal game is one of countless titles that combines Doom-engine graphics with Gamemaker-engine engines to produce something that's not only uninteresting, but tremendously boring as well. I doubt anybody has saved Captain Kirk and I seriously doubt anybody ever will.

    The Fracking Fables of Groggery Gibbonman

    ‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.

    Your Dog is Totally Worth Refrigerated Food

    Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
