Angry Video Game Nerd (Episode 74)
Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

One of the most bizarre and poorly-reviewed titles in video game history, "Plumbers Don't Wear Ties" was a reviled and unsuccessful game for the (similarly unsuccessful) 3DO console.
Throughout the game, the player assumes the role of various characters in an adult romantic comedy storyline, deciding what plot development will happen next. However, instead of the forking, "Choose Your Own Adventure" storyline implied by such a game mechanic, players are kept on a linear story track, with their "wrong" decisions scolded before returning them to the decision screen.
The "Full motion video" promised by the game's packaging is similarly misleading, with only the game's (less than three-minute) introduction featuring FMV, and the entirety of the game proper consisting of still images. Non sequitur humor, illogical sequences of events, and bad post-production contributed to the unpleasant experience of playing the game.
Released in 1994 by Kirin entertainment, "Plumbers" immediately received terrible reviews and today appears on many lists of the worst video games of all time.
