Well the games were good for YTP. But they're still terrible games. A disgrace to Zelda.

HM... I wonder what's for dinner?
This company sucks because of those crappy Zelda games on the CD-i.

I heard anthorer company that made hotel Mario on cdi. Factor factory.

Come on now they made mortal kombat and the burnout series

Well, they did make Mortal Kombat and Burnout, but they also made some bad games too.

How they made #2 I have no idea. Did 4chan decide to raid this list or something?

Are you kidding me? they made Shadow Man for the n64 and RE-volt,those were awesome games,and ports for mortal kombat and Burnout,you can't be serious,Bubsy was made by Acoolade,not Acclaim! - MikeWayne

23 Tiger Electronics Tiger Electronics Tiger Electronics is an American toy manufacturer, best known for its handheld LCD games, the Furby, Giga Pets, and the 2-XL robot product, and audio games such as Brain Warp.

Tiger is smart when it comes to selling, but all they make is outdated games, hell the games are digital watch technology. I still don't understand how they got to be a huge hit back at the 80's and 90's though, they were even outdated THEN. Somebody please explain to me how they got to be a huge hit and I will give you a back-rub, I guess.

There's one word that describes Tiger's games perfectly: Outdated. - lite64

Most of Tigers consoles are crappy junk that require lots of accessories and do not have decent graphics or good games.

"There's a difference between old school and outdated. Old school is Atari 2600. Sure, the graphics aren't that great, but the games are still fun to play. Tiger is outdated. They were never in-dated."- AVGN

I never have, I probably never will, take this group of people seriously. Yes they have some cool things going for halo, but mostly they've managed to dampen my love for this series that was a huge part of my life since I was little.

Halo is good, but I pre ordered halo master chief collection, and multiplayer doesn't work for anyone who pre ordered It! REALLY ANGRY ABOUT IT!

They will ruin the Halo franchise. Can we have Bungie back, PLEASE!

343i Only cares about making money and squeezing every single penny out of their loyal consumer. They do not care about their product and have DESTROYED HALO.

Halo is no longer halo anymore, it used to be as popular as Call of Duty when bungie was making it, can't take these people seriously.

25 Peta Games Peta Games

Peta being peta tried to rip off meat boy by saying that the titular mascot of team meat was made of pig guts. But team meat fought back in a clever way. Peta made super tofu boy to fight it, but if you type "petaphile" on the character select, you can play as tofu boy himself! But he SUCKS. He has troubles even making it past the first level. Peta, just stop making games and stop killing animals but say that you keep them safe. What a bunch of dumb hypocrites. - astroshark

No. No. NO! They are veggie and make the games bad and put them to shame!

So, the infamous terrorist cult has invaded the gaming industry? - thearkis

The only thing they're really good at is euthanasia.

...Which game company ever decide to sue critics saying their game sucks? This one.

The company behind classics like temper tantrum and the slaughtering grounds

Easily the worst developers, by far. They're the Amy's Baking Company of gaming. - MKBeast

How is this not any higher on the list?

27 EA Sports EA Sports

Isn't this the same thing as EA? They do the same crap EA does, but worse. They make sports games every year with updated rosters, a new and useless feature, and better graphics. That's all, it's basically the same game every year, this won't be so bad if it isn't ALWAYS $60, are you kidding me?!? You get the same game, hell I don't even think they bothered to make a new feature sometimes and just REMOVED a feature. Why is this still alive? Why are people falling for this? Well, I guess it's because of the sport it is that they like to watch, they just deny that it is bad in their mind. Well, I'm not going to fall for it. - PinataonSugar

GOD DAMN YOU, EA SPORTS! You actually achieved making people start yammering on about FIFA, the worst franchise in existence.

EA Sports is a spin-off company of EA. It's literally the same thing as EA. It tries to grab your wallet but the difference is that they make sports games.

28 NetherRealm Studios NetherRealm Studios NetherRealm Studios is an American video game developer based in Chicago, Illinois. The company was founded in 2010 replacing WB Games Chicago and Midway Games, which purchased assets in 2009 that were formerly owned by Midway Games Chicago after Midway filed for bankruptcy.

What are they here for?! They've revived Mortal Kombat! What more could you ask for? - MKBeast

They're not bad at all, they brought back Mortal Kombat. Shouldn't be in this list.

Sooo, why is this company here? They made some decent Mortal Kombat games for the 360 and PS4. What's the deuce?

29 Active Enterprises Active Enterprises Active Enterprises Ltd. is a defunct American video game developer headquartered in Miami, Florida which was active in the early 1990s.

Actually... here's the TRUE story. It wasn't the developers' fault.

The founder, Vince Perri, didn't know programming. So he hired a few guys to make Action 52. It took 3 months to make an NES game on average, but they had 52 to program! Vince pushed them too far, thus, the product was rushed. And Vince went too far with advertizing. So it's the founder's fault, not the programmers...

Look up "Action 52: History of the worst game ever! - From Concept to Console" on YouTube.

Just for those two games alone they should be let alone top 10. - htoutlaws2012

Reasons why Action 52 sucks:
-Major bugs and glitches
-Awful controls
-Terrible gameplay mechanics
-Poor level design
-Repetitive gameplay
-Tiny sprites
-Unbalanced difficulty
-Endless games
-bad graphics
-poor music
-No storyline

30 Ocean Software Ocean Software Ocean Software Ltd, commonly referred to as Ocean, was a British software development company, that became one of the biggest European video game developers/publishers of the 1980s and 1990s.

This company's fine. They made perfect arcade ports for computers.

Should be number 1. I will agree with Filmnstuff. He reviews his negative reviews of ocean games. They all suck, except for Total Recall for the Amiga with Darkman.

This is the worst. I mean think about it, the only reason people hate ljn is because the avgn. If he didn't exist, we would not are about ljn. Ocean, should be the worst. Their games are really bad, and they're on par with acclaim as the worst

31 Supercell Supercell Supercell is a mobile game development company founded in June 2010 in Helsinki, Finland. The company's debut game was Gunshine.net.

Recent updates for clash of clans really sucks. Clash royale has lousy servers. But they sometimes do the right things like banning cheaters but might anger most players whose use cheats before

Lately it just seems like they're trying to punish you for playing. Like how dare you not spend $50 weekly.

Clash Royale is unbalanced garbage. - MKBeast

Supercell sucks

32 Rare Rare Rare is a British video game developer located in Twycross, Leicestershire. The company was established in 1985 by Tim and C hris Stamper, founders of Ultimate Play the Game. During its early years, Rare was backed by an unlimited budget from Nintendo, primarily concentrated on Nintendo Entertainment ...read more.

We used to love Rare and we even let Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts slide but until they went on to make Kinect Sports, they were officially dead.

Microsoft ruined this company. Rare used to make some good games, but Microsoft bought their company and created absolute trash to put all of their fame they worked hard for into a waste.

Probably of the recent Rare games but back then nobody would say it. - htoutlaws2012

Kinect Sports is not that bad.

33 Apple Apple

Their five good games are now-obscure Click Wheel iPod games: Klondike, Maze, a Breakout clone, Vortex (their better Breakout clone), and PARACHUTE.

Well they did make a console that failed miserably but developer I'm not sure about that. - htoutlaws2012

So weird looking at my quote from 1 or 2 years ago ("Apple did make a console called the Bandai Pippin, but failed.").

Why is that? Your right, any one who doesn't see it that way are complete masochists. I even made a long review of the console itself on my page now hard to search for. - htoutlaws2012

I have no idea but this suck

They can't do anything more than small crap updates. It not even a full game compared to what they advertised and the large amounts of money Nintendo put into them. They tease big announcements that only is 8 Pokemon added out of the whole gen 2!

35 2K Games 2K Games 2K Games, Inc. is an American global developer, marketer, distributor and publisher of video games, like Borderlands, Civilization V, The Darkness, NBA 2K and more recently, WWE 2K.

2k have made so many good games and bad games also but more good Borderlands bioshock and more

Not for the NBA games but the WWE games recently with them are the same every year their turning into EA it seems like. - htoutlaws2012

36 Sledgehammer Game Sledgehammer Game Sledgehammer Games is an American video game developer, formed in 2009 by industry veterans Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey.

The make the worst Call of Duty games with activation

Honestly I think their involvement with MW3 kinda put them here. The multiplayer was garbage.

Call of Duty's downfall started when this company came in 2011 and did MW3. - htoutlaws2012

37 Interactive Television Entertainment Interactive Television Entertainment Interactive Television Entertainment was a Copenhagen-based Danish company founded in 1988 as SilverRock Productions and renamed to ITE in 1992. It was best known for developing and producing the Hugo media franchise.

Good before, now there trash and ps2 Hugo games as well as 3d hugo games for ps1 sucks too.

38 Rovio Entertainment Rovio Entertainment Rovio Entertainment Ltd., previously known as Relude and Rovio Mobile, is a Finnish developer, publisher, distributor of video games and is an entertainment company headquartered in Espoo, Finland.

Angry Birds has just become an abused cash cow... They arrogantly released the Angry Birds trilogy way overpriced on 3DS and didn't even bother to make it different. They hate gamers, apparently. Especially if they buy anything they make for a Nintendo console.

All I can say is they just been milking Angry Birds and refused to make a new series that can become a big hit. I didn't even like Angry Birds, how the hell is there going to be a Angry Birds movie. - PinataonSugar

Angry birds was great until they added coins to some of the games. Now you have to pay coins for the levels, and you can't even really earn the coins, you have to BUY THEM!

They were good, until they released all of the new birds and games. Stella sucks.

Starts games, but doesn't them. Takes foolish peoples money then abandons their games. Allows big spenders to cheat without punishment. Bans players who ask for money back.

40 505 Games 505 Games 505 Games Ltd. is a global publisher of video games founded in 2006, and is a subsidiary of Italian company Digital Bros.

Love Terraria but Payday 2 is pay to win too much :/

Terraria is one of my favourite games of all time, so I disagree with this being on the list. - astroshark
