Hey, it’s our first bottom five!
In the pre-Wii/PS3 days, if you tried selling kids things like motion control and 3D graphics, you’d have a nice collection of pissed-off 9-year-olds. Since 1986 we’ve been promised new advances in gaming that never do what they’re intended to do.

The U-Force was a laptop-looking device that was supposed track your hand movement, except it didn’t. The one thing it did well was occasionally pressing the A button, and even that took effort.
22 years later, I realize the “A” button stood for “Amateur Hour”. If you’ve never heard of it, consider yourself lucky.
4. Sega Activator
Same idea, but now you can use your whole body to occasionally press the A button! What a value at $149.99!
Even these old talk show host can’t sell this piece of shit. And if you can’t sell something on ABC’s Home, then you might as well just give up on virtual life.
