When you think of the company Colgate, you most likely think toothpaste, but years ago, the company went into the market of TV dinners. Despite a massive marketing push in print and on television for entrees like Chicken Stir-Fry, Colgate's Kitchen Entrees were a complete flop. It's life on the market was brief.

Superman has been an iconic characters since he was conceived in the 1930s, and has seen success not just in comic books, but also movies, TV shows and more. However, one game with the Superman name is considered by some to be the worst video game of all time. Superman: The New Adventures, more commonly known as Superman 64, had a grand concept of Superman flying around the city battling crimes and villains. However, the game had flaws ranging from glitches that clipped Superman through walls and had him stuck in objects. Many reviewers also criticized the game's repetitive gameplay, which include numerous levels of Superman flying through rings.
