Top Ten Worst Video Game Series


The Top TenXW

1Call 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 makes all Russians look like idiots and Afghans like poor horse-riders. Well, my heritage is in both those countries and they got it completely wrong! AND RussiaNS DON'T SPEAK LIKE THAT, GET IT RIGHT!

Just kill this franchise with fire

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 Is Cancer

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

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

4Bird Mania

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!

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

I don't know what this is - AGENTWASHINGTON

9Sonic 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

If Sonic Still Sucks in Fire and Ice, I might even stop playing his games. For now, I can only cling to Fire and Ice.

10Angry 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)

The Contenders


Yeah... The first game sucks, EARTHBOUND AND MOTHER 3 EPIC. But their stories are so dark

What the hell is MOTHER doing on here!?

Worst games ever how could anything like this

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

14Dempa Men

This series is underrated and deserves more love than it gets

15Big Rigs

Sorry but Big Rigs is not a game series, but still yes this game is bad.

There is a sequel to this game. Its called Survivor: Infestation Stories.

1 game unfortunately does not count - htoutlaws2012

It was so bad it never got a sequel - ikerevievs

16Super 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.

Boring series I played one these "games" and it was just running and jumping - nintendoisdoodoo

This game is about precision and accuracy. You are just mad because it is too hard. - EggShell

17Animal 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

19Awesome Possum... Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt

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

20Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

This was one of the best game series ever. That is until Robomondo got their nasty little hands on it and decided to stomp all over the title.

I bet I know why this is here its like the sonic of licensed games the early games were good to decent
the new ones like shred ride and tsp5 are abominations pro skater 5 is worse than sonic 06 - ikerevievs
