Top 10 Worst Video Game Developers

21UbisoftUbisoft Entertainment SA is a French multinational video game developer and publisher, headquartered in Rennes, France.

Ubisoft is without a doubt the worst company in the gaming business. They do all sorts of bull business practices like season passes, overpriced DLC, microtransactions, etc.. Also, remember Uplay? The online service that's trying its hardest to not compete with Steam and Origin. Ubisoft is also a master of milking franchises. They annually release Assassin's Creed games, and they all look the same. I'm willing to bet $500 dollars that Ubisoft will milk the Far Cry franchise as well. Far Cry 4 was basically Far Cry 3. Far Cry Primal also looks like another Far Cry 3. Remember when the Far Cry franchise had variety in every release? Far Cry 1, Far Cry 2, and Far Cry 3 looked and played completely different from each other. Well, now it has lost all its charm. Not only is Ubisoft doing bull business practices, they are also an incredibly lazy developer, as is evident with the annual releases that are basically the same thing different year. Ubisoft started those bull business practices ...more - TheMusicNerd

Have put out numerous games on Steam that just plain don't work (conflicts between Steam and Uplay) and they refuse to do anything about it. The one time I tried to do something about it I went to their forums and found thousands of other people with the same issue and the official response on the forums was always the same 'we can't help you on the forums, you need to open a support ticket.' So I did, and support responded about 2 weeks later saying that they could not help and for those issues I needed to post on the forums. I opened another support ticket explain that it was the forums that had told me I needed to go through them and they simply never responded. Upon reading up a little more I discovered that this was very normal for Ubisoft and at that point I decided to never buy their games again.

Makes a lot of buggy games that require a lot of computer power for graphics that aren't that impressive. Do I even have to tell about they making the same game over and over and just giving it different names? They're the most greedy company in this list, not to mention all its lies.

Not because they make bad games, but because they break promises and just release the same game over and over again. Watchdogs 2 will probably be a great game just like Assassins creed 2, after which I will never play another game in that franchise again.

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.

23Capcom ...read more.

Capcom used to be badass in the eighties and nineties, but they have fallen like Sega and Atari, but EVEN WORSE. Capcom is almost bankrupt ed now and there's a good reason, Capcom treats their fanbase badly, they didn't bring Mega man back even though almost all of their fans demanded for it, they have turned Resident Evil from a horror shooter to a mindless generic shooter, and they have been just milking Street Fighter for all it has, gee, I wonder why they are going bankrupt. - PinataonSugar

No megaman, No resident evil, No castlevania, Making Street Fighter bad, and that comes to my conclusion: CAPCOM has died. Rest in piece CAPCOM. In the 19's you were good, but you dumped some franchises. So now, you can go downhill.

Oh boy... Where do I begin?... We started from having games that could be counted as "masterpieces", now most of those franchises are either dead or being treated like dog crap! They really need to step in their A-game... A lot!

How is this not higher. They went from making masterpieces to mediocre games at best. Not to mention their favorite practice of making you pay for content already locked on the damn disc.

...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?

252K Games2K 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

26Blizzard

They're such a big company now that they don't care about their players opinions and have basically made their biggest game a Facebook game.

They don't make bad games. But they don't really push the envelope either. Hands down some of the best in game cinematics in gaming history.

What? Ok their new mentality might be crap but Their games are Still GOLDEN (Even though it took an Expansion pack to make Diablo 3 golden) - Aguythatpeopleignores

Blizzard allows to much cheating in there games!

27Active EnterprisesActive 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

28EA 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.

29Ocean SoftwareOcean 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

30SupercellSupercell 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

31Titus SoftwareTitus Interactive SA, previously Titus France SA, was a long-running French software publisher that produced and published video games for various formats over its lifetime.

The worst French company ever, made the most memorable bad game of all time superman64 and later did robocop which was also terrible. - htoutlaws2012

Don't get me started on superman64. - tranhotwheel04

The PC games they did were decent... Even the Titus the Fox game with its crappy music.
The console games however... Sucked ass.

32Square EnixSquare Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. is a Japanese video game developer, publisher, and distribution company that is best known for its role-playing video game franchises, which include the Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Kingdom Hearts role-playing game series.

Square Enix made kingdom hearts 2. They should be put in the top 20 game publishers because of that how does one put square Enix in here? Guessing they just butthurt fans who put this in here

I agree with the guy who says that this is one of the most awesome of developers. They created FINAL FANTASY!

I don't think the shooting and driving is bad. You must be horrible at cause I am too. You have to learn to flow with the controls and Square Enix isn't the worst.

They make great RPG's don't agree - htoutlaws2012

Most of the games they made on the Wii are piss poor they should be higher. - htoutlaws2012

These guys didn't have one game that even came close to average score.

They made one decent game that is Lego Rock Raiders for windows(PS1 version was crap),the rest are just poor Wii games that are so ad you would wanna destroy it.

34Peta 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.

They decided it would be better to make DLC and milk us dry of our money than trying to give us a product that works.

They pretty much slapped Arkham fans in the face, and also cut all my relations from DC. - WonkeyDude98

They made Batman: Arkham Origins. Enough said.

WB ruined Arkham game series

36Big Red Button

They shouldn't of even existed before they made a single game. They didn't make a single game until they picked their prey, which was SEGA. So they made one of the worst games ever, Sonic Boom on purpose to kill the Sonic Franchise, which was one of SEGA's most popular franchises.

An unpopular video game company who never made a game for at least 6 years until they developed their first game which is Sonic Boom:Rise of Lyric.

So they made Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric... and that's about it... Who's idea was it for Sega to give the Sonic license to them anyways?

Want to know the weirdest thing? The founder was from Naughty Dog.

38Valve

Honestly, Valve didn't really make bad games, it's that they refuse to see the ton of money they could be making. Lots of people have been demanding Half Life 3, enough to out-sell everything this year. So what does a company need to do, SUPPLY. I learned this in 7th grade, but for some reason Valve dropped out of preschool because they don't even know how to count to 3. It's not only Half Life 3, people wanted Team Fortress 3, Portal 3, and Left 4 Dead 3, but Valve is just to blind to see this. They are making money on Steam, but can't they do both like EA is doing, or heck Sega split into two to make the USA games and the Japan games. Valve needs new management or they WILL go bankrupt. - PinataonSugar

What? I love Valve's games! Especially Team Fortress 2! - Pastakirby7

The fact that Valve is even on here says a lot about the company. Half life, Team fortress, Portal, Left 4 dead. All games which should have been continued on. Games which would have probably made a ton of money just from their IPs, from their legacy. But valve honestly doesn't listen. It doesn't put an ear to the ground, because they think what the customers have to say isn't worth listening to. It's a sad state of affairs, it really is.

HOW? Half-life, Portal, Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress 2, how could you not like this company?!? (And to that person who said that "good games doesn't make Valve good", that is the stupidest thing I've heard all month.)

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

Their games are pointless. There's nothing wrong with that. There's always time for a distraction. The problem is that they try to cash with the games by addicting people and then forcing them to buy. I had luck escaping...

They are a ver arrogant company, trying to play big fish, little fish with indy companies that are making games or made games that have nothing to do or were made before candy crush.

Literally ALL their games are the same. Don't bother defending them. you know it's true.

Wow this company gives me diabetes
