Revolution X

If Midway's Revolution X had stayed in the arcades, it mightn't have been so bad, but Aerosmith's branded lightgun rail-shooter was ported to SNES, Genesis, PC, PlayStation and Saturn, and that's when things went horribly wrong. Set in a dystopian 1996 in which the "New Order Nation" have banned rock music, video games, and being a rad teen, you're tasked with taking down the government and rescuing Aerosmith. You do this by shooting a million bad guys with CDs, laserdiscs, and skull bombs. None of the ports were lightgun compatible, and a D-pad is categorically not a great way to guide sensitive crosshairs. And although the 20 continues it gave you sounds generous, Revolution X was designed to keep players pumping money into an arcade cabinet, and was almost impossible without bottomless pockets.
