Top Ten Worst Video Games of 2016


The Top Ten

1 No Man's Sky No Man's Sky

This game is full of broken promises... - Moorefamval

Very boring game compared to other free roam games like Minecraft Witcher and Skyrim - ikerevievs

As its been said - This game is like a river that's a million miles wide but only an inch deep. Oh so wide...but alas so shallow!

An absolute atrocity. Don't play this trash heap.

2 Mighty No.9 Mighty No.9

This game is super bland. I feel so sorry for all the Megaman fans out there who were really waiting for this game. - Mcgillacuddy

This game is not what we wanted we wanted a game like the original mega man games not this piece of trash that people will forget in a month - ikerevievs

I also hated the trailer it offended anime fans - ikerevievs

Might as well ditch making a Mighty No.10

3 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

The originality of this franchise is simply dying, and I've realized this ever since BO2 was released, yet so many people kept on buying this rehashed crap that barely even changes with each release. I'm not gonna go out of line and say that this was one of the worst games of the year, because it's actually not THAT bad, but I'm just satisfied that people finally, FINALLY opened their eyes and gave this series the hate it deserves. Stop buying from this cashgrab copy and paste series. Until they release a game that's not a DLC of the previous game, then Activision can suck it. - Mcgillacuddy

This could be the nuclear explosion that will kill off call of duty. The trailer is given huge criticism and is the 4th trailer with the most dislikes on YouTube. This game could kill off Treyarch - Gamecubesarecool193

Or it could exceed those expectations. I think this will be a good game. - SelfDestruct

Of course its Call of Duty it's the same thing like last year - ikerevievs

The game is mehhh, ok I guess. People who enjoyed BO3 will stay in BO3 and the ones that are buying and pre-ordered this are Call of Duty toddlers and people who want MWR which is the real orgasm.

4 Street Fighter V Street Fighter V

Yeah this game sucks hard. And it's STREET FIGHTER? Oh come on, guys you could've done better than this - Mcgillacuddy

I think it's time we accept Street Fighter is Mortal Kombat except for kids

This is one of the worst games I played the content in the game is as low as splatoon or star wars battlefront
and wheres arcade mode - ikerevievs

5 Pokemon Go

I've been playing pokemon since I was 7 and all I'm going to say is pokemon go is dead - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

It has absolutely none of the feel of the original Pokemon games.

It's absolutely nothing like the games, it's absolutely nothing like the "Defeat Mewtwo" trailer, people will hate you no matter which team you join, you need 400 candies to evolve Magikarp into Gyrados, and different areas only get specific Pokemon. In a hotel I went to, it was Eevee and Clefairy, and at my house, it's Magnemite and Voltorb.

Broke more promises than no man's sky. Also, people have been dying in Bosnia due to stepping on landmines from the war there while playing this game.

6 Homefront: The Revolution Homefront: The Revolution

Completely changing the timeline from the first game was a really bad idea in my opinion

Sigh, this game is awful, big dissapointment, it's like a game from the 2000s, buy Call of Duty 2 or boyfriend Vietnam instead of this, an old fps is better

It sucks that we're in the generation where games like Uncharted 4, Doom, Bloodborne, MGS5, etc are being released and yet we still get like this. If you're gonna have your game look like a PS3 game, then release it for PS3! Not only does the framerate and graphics suck, but the gameplay is generic, the story is uninteresting, and the open world is so bland and boring. If you want a first person shooter with good gameplay and visuals, play something like Battlefield 1, Overwatch, hell play any of the Call of Duty games and you'll get a better experience.

7 Madden NFL 17 Madden NFL 17

You guys are so stupid this game is so awesome!

8 Metroid Prime: Federation Force

The game looks good for a spinoff, but it definitely wasn't worth attempting to take down legitimately great and amazing main-series games over (cough, cough, ANOTHER METROID 2 REMAKE, cough) - xandermartin98

This game might be good on its own, but it doesn't deserve the Metroid title at all. Disregarding that though, what's the point of this list? None of these games are out yet. - GamerBoy

Why did they even bother calling this metroid prime? It should've been called "don't buy this game, it's bad" - Sanicball

This is how they celebrate metroid's 30th anniversary... it's not even celebrating metroid's 30th anniversary, it's just a game and for some reason Nintendo decides to acknowledge metroid with am2r, damn it Nintendo just let us have a good game for samus' birthday

10 Rollercoaster Tycoon World Rollercoaster Tycoon World

RCT World is an unfinished, unpolished, and overall broken "sequel" fans have been waiting twelve years for. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on Planet Coaster instead.

Ugh, this game is a disaster. Should've never trusted Atari, a company that's gradually falling apart, with a game that fans have been asking years for. It's insanely glitchy, has tons of bugs, the coaster creator is impossible to use, the coaster point of view framerates are ass, the game lags out when 1k people are in your park... This game just has so many problems fans were screaming about that the developers never bothered to fix after the dozens of patches and updates. After 12 years, this is what they bring us. The funny thing is that I would've waited. I'm patient enough. I would've waited a few more years for them to polish the game, but no, they just had to rush it out because they want the quick buck.

RCT fans, don't buy this game. You want a good theme park simulator? Buy Planet Coaster and not this crap. Atari is dead to me. I don't want to see their ass again. - Mcgillacuddy

All it is a horrible hitman clone - ikerevievs

12 Clash Royale

It has TERRIBLE balancing issues. - MKBeast

13 Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice

How can you judge this game? The first one was bad but you can't judge a game until it's out. And to be honest, I feel like the person that makes these lists only hates on these games for attention. - nintendofan126

Why are judging games that aren't out yet? - RalphBob

This list is stupid, how can you judge these games when they're not even out yet.

The game turned out to be good. Well, look at that. - MKBeast

What The Heck Was The Point Of This Game? , It Was Pretty Boring For Sure - VideoGamefan5

16 Persona 5 Persona 5

I still wonder why Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is number 1 worst game of 2016 in this list, when there are so many worse games that came out this year (*cough*Persona 5*cough). My friend imported a copy of *cough*Persona 5*cough* for PS4 from Japan and I gave it a try. It sucked! - SelfDestruct

17 Finding Dory: Keep Swimming

Seriously, Just Like The Zootopia Crime Files Game, Just Another Boring App Off A Good Film - VideoGamefan5

18 Pokken Tournament Pokken Tournament

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ON THE LIST?! Pokken Torunament is one of the best fighting games of all time! - Neinwott

It is good neinwott, but the fights can go really quickly and the CPUs are very easy and will make you weak for online battles - Sanicball

19 Pokemon Moon Pokemon Moon

This game is not bad. People think it is bad because pokemon go ruined game freak.

Ruined because of the "Island Challenge". I wanted Gyms, dammit!

Nintendo doesn't suck! Nintendo is life! Pokemon is one of the best games of all time! - Neinwott

Oh Nintendrones. You ruined Pokemon for me. So I might as well add Pokemon Sun and Moon to the list. Besides, I am sick of only being able to play as a 10 year old kid. Let us play as full grown adults. - SelfDestruct

SCREW YOU! Have you ever played these games? They are amazing! And you added it because you can't play as an adult! Hello! The point is that you begin your island challenge at age ELEVEN. I bet you would know that if you played the games! Ugh! And try to improve your reasoning. These games were awesome! It's a shame you were too narrow-minded to try them! - Absolite
