Is worser a word?

No. Worse is already the superlative for bad. So you don't need to add an r to it to make it a superlative.

Worse is NOT superlative for bad...Instead it is COMPARATIVE to bad...so it is bad, worse (comparative), worst (superlative)...

Comparative degree is used when you compare two things...and superlative is used when you use it as an absolute expression

While common in the 16th and 17th centuries, worser is now found only in some regional dialects, and is considered nonstandard.
