Penn and Teller's Desert Bus, the worst videogame ever made, gets a VR reboot

In 1995, Penn and Teller released Desert Bus, the worst game ever made, a "VeriSimulator" that challenged you to keep a bus moving between the white lines on an eight-hour Arizona/Nevada drive. If you made it, you got to spend another 8 hours driving back. The bus had just enough veer in its steering that you had to correct it periodically, so you couldn't just tape the controller button down.

The game was rescued from obscurity in 2006 with a playable version being salvaged and has remained a cult favorite ever since.

Now, Desert Bus is back on Steam with VR versions for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Play it again, like it's the first time!
