61Cypronia

Known for making knock-offs of popular mobile phone games like -- Cake Ninja which is their attempt at Fruit Ninja and currently they have released Angry Bunnies, which has some of us cringing enough that it's another Angry Birds. Though we acknowledge 3DS has more than just one demographic but AG was way too overpriced.

They've improved a little since they released Color Zen however, Color Zen Kids is overpriced. Though serious it doesn't excuse the mediocre knock-offs.

I liked cube life, they are a very open company

62Quantic DreamQuantic Dream SA is a French video game developer based in Paris, France, founded in 1997. The company also supplies motion capture services to the film and video game industries.

Not really I mean heavy rain was good. The others aren't bad there okay. - htoutlaws2012

If you had a Genesis with 2 Add-ons you know what I'm talking about. - htoutlaws2012

64Animation Magic

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.

66Bethesda SoftworksBethesda Game Studios is an American in-house development team at Bethesda Softworks established in 2002. Previously synonymous with parent publisher Bethesda Softworks, the studio's name and logo were established with the release of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in 2002. The studio is currently ...read more.

These are one of the worst companies out there, sure they make good games but how many of them actually work properly? I never got to complete Skyrim because of the game breaking bugs and they never seem to learn from their mistakes, they just keep making them over and over, it's like they don't care about their customers. Not to mention their ludicrously overpriced DLC packs and season passes. Seriously, $60 for a season pass is unforgivable.

I need to give them the middle finger for buying id Software.

Bethesda Made great but Glitchy games but Their Fanboys are WORSE they worship Todd Howard as a god and They say that they respect opinions and then hate Mainstream games and disrespect the people who likes them! - Aguythatpeopleignores

They shouldn't be on this list, they're among the best if not THE BEST developers out there!

Destiny is the worst game. First, the game feels kind of rushing out to get money. Characters are not shock when shot, maps are limited and repeated. Different weapons in same kind has no appearance differences. The expansion even worst that it change nothing but shorten the signature skills and call it new game mode. Feeling that Bungie is not trying to do a good game but just capture some cash

I think that's the point, they don't want people cheating *Glitching*

They should of stayed with the Halo Franchise before 343 took over. Instead, they made Destiny, which was honestly crappy and tried to grab your wallet with its huge price and it's overpriced DLCs.

Ugh. absolutely not! - htoutlaws2012

68NexonNexon Co., Ltd. is a global developer and publisher of free-to-play (F2P) PC and mobile online games.

They ruined Aion, ruined Wildstar, the list goes on and on. This company doesn't create games, instead they "hold major share" in several companies and when their games reach certain threshold of monthly income they either kill it directly or change it to pay 2 win. Other than that they don't care about players, support is abysmal, etc. If every member of their board die tomorrow it will improve humanity as a race.

What do Halo 5 and all Nexon games have in common? Nothing but five-year-olds who constantly denigrate and bully all the others just because the latter have not gone pay-to-win. Is anything being done to fix this? No. Is anything being done to worsen this? Everything.

What do EA and Nexon have in common? Pay-to-win games all the way through. Is it a trend that really has to die? Yes. Is it a trend that is dying? Nope, it even harnesses even more power than ever before even though it already has 99% of all of the power in gaming.

What do Nexon and every free-to-play game company have in common? They say their games are not pay-to-win, but their pay-to-win is obvious and blatant.

What is another thing EA and Nexon have in common? They try to make e-sport titles, but wait, they are not legitimate e-sport titles because they are unplayable without going through the microtransactions and paying extra.

They created combat arms. that's all I have to say to explain how bad Nexon is.

They can't program... I would guess their GAME DEV team is 95% artists and 5% Programmers who just started their game development programming... How hard is it to fix your Hit radiuses.

70MojangMojang AB is a Swedish video game developer founded in May 2009 under the name Mojang Specifications by game programmer Markus Persson, best known for creating the popular independent game Minecraft, a sandbox game.

One hit wonders would be the right category for this one. - htoutlaws2012

Really, you guys like Minecraft? Minecraft has a cancerous community of 6 year olds who don't know how to spell. It is a boring piece of junk. In fact, it is actually a rip-off of an old game that was released many years ago! Mojang only got their fame of 6-8 year old idiots. Terraria is way better than Minecrap.

Only one game they made, dude that's just...messed up

Remove, it NOW! They made Minecraft, that was pretty good game.

71WargamingWargaming Public Co Ltd is an international game developer and publisher headquartered in Nicosia, Cyprus.

The level of these guys do to make a quick buck at the expense of their players is only surpassed by how much more they would do if it wouldn't mean immediate suicide for their company.

Ultra fun gameplay in WoT, as soon as you don't run on a derp tank while in a scout

72Overkill SoftwareOverkill Software is a video game developer founded in 2009 in Stockholm, Sweden by Ulf Andersson, Bo Andersson and Simon Viklund, formerly founders and owners of Grin.

First they added 100 bucks worth of DLC, now they added P2W microtransactions, although they told us, we would be crazy thinking that they would ever do that. The storm of the community is being ignored.

73KemcoKemco Corporation is a Japanese video game developer and publisher established in 1984 as a subsidiary of Kotobuki Engineering & Manufacturing Co., Ltd., located in Seika, Kyoto, Japan.

Its like Kemco doesn't even know gaming - tranhotwheel04

You know what's funny these guys are still making games and are not defuncted yet they have made some of the worst games I've ever played - htoutlaws2012

I loved Kemco! Sure, they made Batman: Dark Tomorrow, the Bugs Bunny games and Daikatana, but they made good games too! Just to name a few...
Dragon Wars; the NES ports of Deja Vu, Shadowgate and Uninvited; Rescue: The Embassy Mission; Kablooey! ; the Top Gear series; Phalanx; Kid Klown in Crazy Chase; Dragon View and Stone Protectors.

74Hi-Rez Studios

Why are these guys even here?
They released smite which is a good $30 games if you bought the gods pack, the rest are just cosmetic which doesn't even matter

77Art Co.

They have made mostly bad games some are okay but mostly bad. - htoutlaws2012

Created bad games such as Family Party WiiU, Flushed Away, and so on.

"Day One: Garry's Incident is really really bad! Day One: Garry's Incident is really really bad! Day One: Garry's Incident is really really bad! And I want to kill myself! " -Projared

I'm surporised this one's not in the top 10. I mean seriously now, aside form being the ones behind the inconceivable Day One: Garry's Incident, these guys are responsible for massive censorship on both Youtube and Steam forums, a multitude of fake, bribed Metacritic user reviews and let's not forget, the false copyright strike against TotalBiscuit. The sheer dishonesty, lack of tolerance in the face of criticism as well as the amount of effort these guys put into removing the negative publicity surrounding them and their dreadful product is more than reason enough why they SHOULD be the absolutely worst game developer to date. Sure, LJN never made a good game in their life. Sure, EA always finds new ways to squeeze every single penny out of your wallet with DRM and microtransactions. And yes, both Treyarch and Infinity Ward deserve to be impaled on spikes. But at least they all NEVER pulled off such stupidity as Wild Games Studios.

80Cryo InteractiveCryo Interactive Entertainment was a French video game development and publishing company founded in 1992, but existing unofficially since 1989 as a developer group under the name Cryo.

If you find a game with their logo on, Stay away. This company makes nothing but garbage games such as Asterix & Obelix Take on Ceasar, Hellboy: Dogs of the Night and Frank Herbert’s Dune.
