Top Ten Worst Video Game Series


The Top TenXW


Isn't it one of the worst games of all time?

Bubsy is 1000x worse than anything Call of Duty has ever made,

Bubsy is not underrated, he's hated by everyone

Bubsy should be 1#, not Call Of Duty - IHateDonaldTrump

2Call of Duty

A quick recap on the enemies, terrorists, terrorists, terrorist, terrorists, Russians, terrorists, terrorists, Russian terrorists. Plus all the guns have names like AB-12468 which no one remembers. They just know it as the pistol o the assault rifle. Oh yeah, and it's like 2 shots, boom you're dead. Everyone goes for the automatic guns and snipers. Most people only play it for the zombie mode. ANd all the maps look. Exactly. The. Same.

There's no innovation, very few (good) new ideas, and yet every six months there's a new one that fanboys will pay $60 for. Activision doesn't care about making this game better. They've gotten people hooked on this like it's meth and are now just peddling it to feed the addicts, no matter how low-grade it is.

! Call of Duty is the best game ever made... NOT!

The only decent game in the series was the first black ops game. The series is overrated garbage

3Animal Crossing

Each of its "games" shouldn't even be considered legitimate games. There is literally nothing fun about it! All it is is toddler crap! - SelfDestruct

This game is so much fun I would love to live in this game

The one that came for the 52 & it's crap sequel. - htoutlaws2012

Just one of the series that made Action 52 so terrible.


I got Spyro's Adventure for my birthday, an old fan of Skylanders who was my moms friends son donated Giants to us and some figures, I didn't really like Swap Force so I didn't get it, and I got Trap Team. After that I realized the games were kinda dumb, so I stuck with my old ones and didn't buy the new games. Now they're making a 7th game. Wow Activision. Wow.

Its especially bad since the characters are $15.00 EACH!

I can't believe I used to LIKE this, and the figurines are 7 pounds! - DapperPickle

7PokemonPokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

It only became a guilty pleasure, until some Nintendrones ruined it by talking crap about Microsoft and Sony and didn't stop doing so ever. And they kept mentioning this as a part of why Halo, Grand Theft Auto, and Call of Duty sucked! - SelfDestruct

8Flappy Bird

Terraria shouldn't be on this list, it is very fun like with the swords and armor and stuff, but the only annoying thing is that you don't get creative ;(

Lol people be saying that terraria is a ripoff of mine craft when terraria was released May 16 2011 and Minecraft was November 18 2011

Also, Terraria wasn't a series in the first place (unless you include Terraria: Otherworld, which isn't even out yet)

How is terraria a bad game its awesome!

10Super Mario Bros.

Without super Mario bros. the video game industry would still be dead. - egnomac

Umm... Without this series, the Legend Of Zelda, Pokemon and many other beloved franchises would be dead. This shouldn't be on the list.

No Zelda and Pokemon would be alive without Mario. Pokemon was created by a different person, and Zelda was created by the same person, but at the same time. It just took longer to develop Zelda.

Should NOT be on the list along with Sonic. - DCfnaf

The Newcomers

?Midnight Club

I wouldn't have put this in this list, if it didn't die! Midnight Club Los Angeles was amazing, but it just couldn't withstand the test of time. So MIdnight Club was eventually killed off, never to be revived as of now. - SelfDestruct


Other than being used to create good anime adaptations, Persona games are useless. - SelfDestruct

The Contenders

11M&M's Kart Racing
12Angry Birds

Running Out of ideas I say...
Angry Birds rio? WHY NOT?
Star Wars? WHY NOT?
Transformers? WHY NOT?
You See, Angry Birds Team, You can't just make millions of pointless games.
You have to just make a few games, update from time to time, and when you have fixed everything, make a new one, or a new series. - DapperPickle

Re-hash after re-hash, but with new artwork, personally angry birds star wars made me quit playing a lot of games on my iPhone (well, ONE of the games)

13Awesome Possum... Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt

It was so bad it never got a sequel
it was just another sonic clone - ikerevievs


Minecraft is NOT a series, nor does it have sequels

Not even a series. You're welcome,


This list makes me cringe now that Danganronpa, a series of games where you can't save during 1-hour long or longer class trials, is below great game franchises like Grand Theft Auto, where you can do literally anything, Call of Duty and Battlefield, 2 amazing FPS's. And yes, Danganronpa, like Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, and Battlefield, is rated M. But what makes Danganronpa so insufferable is the terrible save game mechanic as aforementioned. So why is this below Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, and Battlefield let alone last place? - SelfDestruct

If class trials take over an hour to complete and you can't save your progress during one, what's the point of buying the games. Still, the only saving grace is that it has good anime adaptations. But that's about it. - SelfDestruct

16Sonic the HedgehogSonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

I think we can all agree that in the 90s and early 2000s sonic was a masterpiece and sonic adventure 2 is the best sonic game. After the 2005 the sonic franchise went downhill with Sonic 06 the worst sonic game ever, now the sonic franchise is now mixed because there were 2 story book adventures featuring sonic, a time travel game with 2 sonics, a ridiculous team is the main antagonist in sonic lost world and now sonic boom knocked on drugs? Even though I'm a huge sonic fan (not the character) No offense but I only play sonic games when shadow is playable

Just let it die already. This is starting to become like keeping a person who has become a vegetable alive. If you love it, remember it as it was and just pull the plug. Be it's angel and set it free.

What is this doing here Sonic is one of the best video game franchises ever now I am not a sonic fanboy but I know this series is amazing

When the boost feature died, the fun in Sonic games died along with it. - SelfDestruct

Uh, of you wanna play football, you could play it outside for free, not 40$ bucks. - DapperPickle

I work in retail. Every time I work the gaming section and someone comes to me saying they want to buy this, or any sports game, I want to smack them.

Every year, same game, new players.

Noo I love this series take it off - nintendoisdoodoo
