Biggest Failures in Gaming of 2017

These are the biggest fails/flops of the 2017 gaming season.

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars: Battlefront 2 lootbox controversy

Probably the biggest and most famous fail this year, EA games sent ripples through the game market when players became outraged at the pay to win card mechanics and excessively long grind for characters in their new star wars game. EA ended up losing millions in stock as a result, forcing them to backpedal on their mechanics, showing the industry that gamers are not happy about loot boxes. - Jackamalio

Battlefield 1 was a game that significantly boosted EA's reputation, only to fall again after this crap got released. - Not_A_Weeaboo

2 Lawbreakers dead on arrival

Cliff Blazinski's fast paced zero-g hero shooter Lawbreakers opened to a disastrous launch. The game peaked at only about 7000 players on PC, and soon began to plummet in number until today, where the game routinely fails to get more than 30 or so players at a time. Many fans feel the only way to save this sinking game is for it to go free-to-play, though Cliffy B's famous arrogance may impeded such a move. - Jackamalio

3 Sonic Mania being followed by Sonic Forces
4 Shadow of War featuring loot boxes in a single-player only game.
5 Destiny 2 locking pre-existing content behind the first expansion pack
6 PUBG's terrible Xbox One port

And they say PUBG is better than fortnite.. - B1ueNew

7 Yooka-Laylee being painfully average.
8 OB64 update for Paladins: champions of the realm

This update drove off many players due to the card boost system being restructured into a pay2win system. - Jackamalio

9 Paladins: Battlegrounds
10 PUBG tries to sue its competitors instead of actually trying to compete

No no, PUBG war mode a Tequila Sunrise mode coming out. - Not_A_Weeaboo
