Top 10 Worst Video Game Developers


The Contenders: Page 4XW

61BungieBungie, Inc. is an American video game developer located in Bellevue, Washington, United States. The company was established in May 1991 as Bungie Software Products Corporation by University of Chicago undergraduate student Alex Seropian, who later brought in programmer Jason Jones after publishing more.

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.

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.

63MojangMojang 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.

64WargamingWargaming 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

65Bethesda 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 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.

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

66Overkill 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.

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.

68KemcoKemco 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.

69NexonNexon 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 have made mostly bad games some are okay but mostly bad. - htoutlaws2012

"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.

76GoodGame StudiosGoodgame Studios is an online games company founded in 2009 and based in Hamburg, Germany. The company has created several games, including Goodgame Empire, Goodgame Big Farm, Goodgame Galaxy, Goodgame Gangster, Goodgame Poker, Shadow Kings: Dark Ages, and Legends of Honor.

Very greedy indeed! They don't care about making cool games, but rather copying, badly, already existing successful games hoping to make easy money. They have no respect for the gamers, who are treated like nothing more than dumb cash-cows and they exploit their employees with very low salaries and fire-hire policies.

Very greedy company! Sketchy advertising policies. (Targeting children's T.V. channels with so called free games that you can not even begin to survive in, unless you make in game purchases. with every update they raise the cost of items that in game purchases buy. then claim that in app purchases have not gone up. Could have been a top company but got way to greedy.

Thet ruin over and over again, for destroying Nintendo, remeber these awful Zelda CDI games, now they're going to kill the Wii you

They made arcade ports to computers very badly.

If you want a good failure in game design, then look no further than A Bug's Life for the GBC. It's always a bad sign when the unlicensed version looks and sounds a lot better than the original game.
