Top 10 Most Disappointing Video Games of the 2010s

These were the games of the 2010s that should have been great but ended up disappointing.

The Top Ten

1 Mass Effect: Andromeda
2 Metroid Other M

The game that managed to tarnish the reputation the awesome bounty hunter Samus Aran by turning her into an unlikable brat and making the game play as confusing as possible and not only that but having Samus have all her abilities and weapons and not allowing her to use any of them without being ordered to instead of obtaining them in the game. - egnomac

3 Halo 4

So disappointing it made the list twice. - htoutlaws2012

4 Star Fox Zero

Not the comeback we were hoping for though its nice to see new Star Fox game for the Nintendo console unfortunately the controls are a huge mess switching between the game pad and the screen is really frustrating especially during boss battles and the new vehicles are just annoying to use. - egnomac

5 Duke Nukem Forever
6 Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Ultimate 3 were awesome Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite is not with its smaller cast mostly made up of returning characters from the last game with no X-Men characters a dull story mode that gets repetitive and the game really wants to be more like a part of the MCU rather than a fun over the top fighting game. - egnomac

7 Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5
8 Resident Evil 6

I personally liked Resident Evil 6, but I can see why a lot of people didn't it was way more action packed like a Michael Bat movie and not as scary as previous installments though we have the live action Resident Evil movies to blame for the change in game play. - egnomac

9 Evolve
10 Destiny

The Contenders

11 Dead Space 3
12 Star Wars Battlefront (2015)
13 Fallout 76
14 Yooka-Laylee

About as close to Banjo-Threeie as we were ever gonna get it plays a lot like Banjo-Kazzoie but offers almost nothing new and there's only five worlds. - egnomac

15 Sea of Thieves
16 Bioshock 2

Plays way too much like the first game the only difference is you play as Subject Delta a less powerful version of a Big Daddy. - egnomac

17 Street Fighter X Tekken

Sounded like a good idea on paper but the execution was terrible. - egnomac

19 No Man's Sky
20 Detroit: Become Human
21 Mario Party 9
