worst demo, not BITS?

category: general [glöplog]
Clearly most thumbs down is not the best path to "worst demo", especially the ones that still have more up than down. That said, having 70 or 80 thumbs up and down in near perfect balance is something of an achievement.

opposing opinions => art

psenough: Interesting read. Don't mix gaming and demos or face the consequences.

This one comes to mind, but i am sure there are much worse productions, which says a lot.

Ugh so true 4play, was a time at every party (more or less), these "funny" demos would appear and never spoken about again !! Haha i think it was in KinderGarden that they had to start checking the entries before going to the bigscreen, after too much gayness was submitted !! :D :D Of course submitted by Finnish guys :D

TV Noise demos are the best demos.

no sound with incoherent visuals
Even BITS demos have some outsider-art charm. That's a redeeming quality. The worst demo would be something with no redeeming qualities, that's just depressingly bad, and conceptually distasteful in more ways than just aesthetical and technical. I can think of a few examples, but quite frankly, I don't want to showcase any of them.

Instead, I'll go with the least original response possible, Rush Hour, which isn't the worst demo, but it is arguably the greatest bad demo classic of all time. It's telling that before 2010 it received mostly downvotes, and after 2010, it has received mostly upvotes.

Rush Hour is the equivalent of The Room - something that at least APPEARS to have been made in earnest.

I totally agree, Jobe. BITS has an outsider-art charm

Awww, 100bit. I'm sure your demos aren't that bad. I'd run them but I don't know your scene group name

Well, there is at least Wurst Demo

I’d say some ISO demos have aged poorly…
They are purposely bad and many funny for that reason, but some have been made in bad taste.

Has to be something with unironic nazi/racist shit, or one where everything has been ripped from others' work. Hard to choose the worst offender in either case.

I'm very proud to have been involved in a "demo" that has a 1.8 / 10 score on CSDb.

What, under 9.0 score on newish production on csdb, unheard of! :P

Yes, 8 is considered "downvote."
