Audio Atrocities™ : Firefighter F.D.18 Konami Playstation 2 2004
With the heroic focus of the world being redirected to Police, EMT, and Firefighters in our post 9/11 world, it was only a matter of time before some game company tried to capitalize on it. Konami stepped up to the plate on the PlayStation 2 and made a game that is more of a joke than an homage to modern heroes. The game has the usual silly story line and definitely has cringe-worthy acting, but it's the writing that really amps up the Atrocious factor.

Exhibit A: ...red heels...like fire...
This bit is the most hilariously WRONG clip in the whole game. Are we really to believe that the firefighter hero being honored at this fundraiser is somehow traumatized by the red shoes of his former, uh, flame? Those nutty Nihongo natives have really outdone themselves on this one.

Exhibit B: Mommy! Daddy! Waaaaah!
In a somewhat too-subtle nod to Kamen Rider's crappy localization, the actor here is playing a kid's voice with reckless abandon usually reserved for the mentally ill. The Daddy clip is here, and the 'crying' clip is here. ALL of them are shamefully bad. Get real kids to play kid voices and stop having adults crap in our ears - it doesn't play.

Exhibit C: I'm gonna kill anybody who stands in MY WAY!
Over-the-top bad guy with over-the-top ambition is so out there you can't do anything but laugh at the inept delivery.

The Rest:
Haven't had enough? Here's some additional clips for your amusement:
