Most Disappointing Video Games of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Assassin's Creed III

You thought finally a true sequel that could redeem the two lazy Ezio spinoffs...

The only assassin creed that disappointed me

I played the Assassin's creed franchise out of order so I found this game pretty good.

You guys suck this is a awesome game

22No Man's Sky

Game was overly hype for a indie game. I say no more. Indie games are indie games.

You do the same thing on every planet gets boring

23E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

This game was so bad that they buried it in a landfill lol. The documentary about how bad this game was is actually a good movie, but the game is considered the worst video game of all time!

How is this better then new super Mario bros 2 and SpongeBob heropants? this is trash - jwaughtal

This game nearly killed the gaming industry should be at 1 - ikerevievs

Should be #1. It nearly killed the video game industry.

24Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival

THIS GAME SUCKS! Its Mario party but not really it has little fun very boring and also has no action like a regular animal crossing game would have. - spodermanfan1000

This isn't even a game. I mean, we all play Skyrim, Pokémon, Final Fantasy etc. to have fun, right? But Amiibo Festival isn't fun at all. So what is it then? A non-game?! Anyway, me having a lot of nostalgia from playing Wild World as a kid, I was really exited for the game. I was a bit disapponted that it was going to be a board game, but Happy Home Designer was a fun spinoff and this was Nintendo... It couldn't possibly be that bad, right? Yes, yes, yes. I HATE this game! So here's the formula they went with for this game; take the original Mario Party, add amiibo, takeaway the luck, take away the unique spaces, takeaway the fun and slap on Animal Crossing. Oh, and I almost forgot! There's not a SINGLE minigame in the already boring board game. Every time I see Isabelle walk out of the little train in HD, I'm just sad from the wasted potential. If you want AC, GO PLAY NEW LEAF! It's great. Trust me.

Where do I start?
this game it's like a cash grab because Nintendo thinks animal crossing fans will buy it
I gave it a fair shot because it was cheap and had 2 amiibo figures
and honestly the only way it could be " Fun " is if I drank a few 6 packs of alcohol - AndyMetal92

25WWE 13

What is this never heard of this

26Superman 64

It's considered the worst game of all time.

This game wasn't a disappointment, it was just plain bad!

Anyone else thought a Superman game would be good and not a load of trash?

27Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
28Star Wars: Battlefront

The original games were so good, the second being my favourite Star Wars game (sorry KOTOR fans) but this game is an insult. No space battles, different troopers, or even a campaign or split screen multiplayer online. Even the multiplayer isn't that good. Only 3 heroes per side, Palpatine absolutely sucks and Luke vs Vader feels like banging 2 toys together. There is no flow and nothing from the prequels (some argue that's a good thing, but who doesn't want to play as Darth Maul? ) Overrall, this was wasted potential. A remaster of the first 2 games would've done the series more justice.

This game deserves a lot more. It needs more maps and game modes to begin with. Not through DLC! Thanks a lot EA for ruining this one.

50 dollor season pass like 10 maps no single player microtransactions and bland gameplay while everyone expected it to be epic - ikerevievs

29Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness

Great game I love tomb raider

30Watch Dogs

I learned my lesson about pre ordering games after this crap. It's Grand Theft Auto without all the good things only the bad ones, and with a super gimmicky hacking mechanic.

31Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

I liked this game, actually. It kinda lacked the emotional moments of previous PMD titles though, like when Grovyle sacrafices him self. That moment brought a tear to my eye T_T

-Little variety in dungeons and music
-Only FIVE starters
-Very few Pokemon from the previous games
-Underwhelming afterstory
-Ridiculously easy difficulty setting
Need I say anything else?

32Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Ugh I was so hyped for this game. I played super paper Mario and I loved that game. I had such high hopes for this game but all my excitement fell down the drain. It had a weak story, confusing level design and there isn't an xp system, which makes battles pointless. Definitely a major disappointment.

If you get this game and check all 52 games, all you'll be wishing for is your $200 back.

In my opinion this game is dumb some drunk guy come up with it

36Pokemon Go

I personally find this a failure. A lot of die hard Pokemon fans now think all Pokemon have CP, and a lot of zoos, museums, and restaurants have people coming not for reptiles, fossils, or food, but for the app. My god...

This Garbage Is Brainwashing People And Its More Overrated Than Frozen To Be Honest


What r you guys talking bout this game is awesome

What? this is a good game! come on, people.

38Mass Effect 3

Ending aside this entry is fantastic. I was more disappointing when I played 2 and realized they had removed ALL weapons and armor collecting from the first game.

Taking away charm and likable characters you grew to love over 2 games to boring incarcerates and making the past 2 games lair's

Minecraft fanboys are the worst. I know this will get like 3 downvotes because of them. They defend their game in the stupidest way, by saying "BUT ITS FUN EVERY GAME IS THERE". Get real. Pokemon isn't a bunch of blocks.

I always thought after you played mine craft a couple of times it became really boring. A lot of people will disagree but this is one of my least favorite game ever

TopTenJackson, this is not supposed to be a mortal kombat parody. The blocks are a characteristic and the game is supposed to be creative, not limited shooting and leveling up. Go back to your Call of Duty.

Game is great and you idiots this game has NO graphics and Really all you people like is nudity and gore
