...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?

23EA 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.

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?

25Active 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

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.

Remake a good game from a great developer into a mediocre game and pretend it's not a rip-off, charge the game as "Freemium" and sue any developer who's game has a similar name (they sued for a game called Candy Land Saga that was written before Candy Crush Saga). Spend less then 10 million dollars developing said game and 400 million advertising it. Treat their employees bad enough that they are fed up with the industry as a whole and leave to write their own game. Yes, this is the company that drove Notch to write Mincraft. I guess we have that to thank them for.

Wow this company gives me diabetes

27Ocean 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

28RareRare 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 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.

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

I hate supercell and I always will

30Titus 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.

31Square 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

32Peta 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.

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

34Sledgehammer GameSledgehammer 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

35Interactive Television EntertainmentInteractive 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.

36Rovio EntertainmentRovio 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.

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

Ever since I've played custer's revenge I hate hate hate mystique they always make crappy games with porn

I can agree this company sucks... but it went out of business during the Game Crash of 1983. So we don't gotta deal with them, anymore.

Made the worst Video Game Ever Custer's Revenge, enough said - IHateDonaldTrump
