The Romero classic Daikatana comes to Steam

Written by David Stellmack

Will attract the curious that have heard about it

Often called one of the worst and highly hyped gaming title messes of all time, John Romero’s Daikatana has made its was for sale on Steam. Those that remember the ads where Romero said that he was going to, “make you his bitch” also felt the stupidy after playing Daikatana.

When we tell people about Daikatana, most of them never got the chance to play it, they are curious on how one title could actually be that truly bad. Besides the fact that the graphic engine for the game was outdated before it hit the shelves, the entire game was poorly designed and lacked the kind of cohesiveness necessary to produce a good title. With all of those problems going for it and the hype train making such bold statements, we have to think why didn’t we know this was going to be a failure from the start.

The reality here is that it is for sale on Steam for cheap and if you have a fascination on how bad one game can be, then this is the one that you find the history books are right about. Still it put a studio out of business and became the punch line of choice for any game that people didn’t think was up to snuff. Check it out on Steam if you dare.
