Most Disappointing Video Games of All Timedinosaur
The Top Ten
The definitive #1 for me. Anyone who grew up playing Duke Nukem 3D, remembers how amazing the gameplay was, Duke's witty lines of humorous gold, and an all around fun shoot'em'up experience. Years of development hell later and we're left with a shattered, watered-down catastrophe of a game that spits on the face of former Duke Nukem fans harder than nearly any other game franchise to date. A good reason why this game went from being a hyped release to littered in the Bargain Bin in a mere matter of MONTHS. - BloodyThunderX
Instead of waiting for it in 2001 skip 10 years later and we get one of the most disappointing games of the modern era. - htoutlaws2012
We waited many years for this garbage, I would blow up some aliens right now but I'm out of gum

Those who followed this game before it's release know that there was loads of hype following it, with various publications claiming it was going to be quite the title. However, upon released it was revealed that the final product was left in an unfinished, buggy, and flatout painful state that did serious damage to Sonic's credibility. Apparently, the build used for the final product was NOT the latest build of the game, however was forcedly used due to SEGA's poor reputation for getting games released for certain dates (To keep with it being released for Sonic's 15th Anniversary), and because the latest build was not stable and polished enough to be used.
What a disappointment to say the least. - BloodyThunderX
As one of my all time favorite franchises, I was stoked for this game. This game was so bad that I did not even finish it. I am a completionist and a die hard Sonic fan, so I was expecting to at least play through it, but nope. After a few hours of playing, I had a decision to make: Take it to Game Stop for hardly anything in return or destroy it. It was with great regret that I had to abandon a Sonic game, but I was pushed to do so. I threw the case and then let the disc become crushed underneath my belongings, letting it sit, stored and unplayed ever since. - surgeonsanic
It's Sonic 06. God, it was made in 2006... 666. It had no hope. Sonic is a horrible franchise. It needs to end. Sega is trying WAY too many gimmicks and if it wants good games, make a new mascot. This game, is just AWFUL. Everyone thought we were going to get a great Sonic game, but no. Too many glitches, some scenes look nice and the others look like 1999s. I just don't get how they failed. Great job Sega. Just give up already. They tried Sonic Boom, they failed.
I thought this would be the best sonic but it suckesV 21 Comments
343 didn't do the franchise justice
I've never been more disappointed in a halo game in my life than this one - htoutlaws2012
This really shouldn't be number three. This Halo had the best moments between Cortana and the Chief. It also has some great shootouts. The two things this game really lacked was good map design and vehicle moments. The multiplayer is one of the best of the Halo franchise. This game doesn't deserve to be on this list.
I feel most people that comment this just blame the developers. - NekoHybridV 11 Comments
Actually, if you'd play it for what it IS, not what you WANTED it to be, you'd probably enjoy it. - Garythesnail
Despite never having been able to play the first two games, I can say that this one has nothing going for it. Boring, bland, tedious and departed from the original formula don't describe this game enough.
This game is actually a very great game. I loved it so much when I was younger! I played it over the summer this year after about 3 years of not playing it - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Only Microsoft could screw up one of gaming's greatest series. Massive middle finger to us old time fans of the series.V 8 Comments
It's a very good game. It's just not a horror game. If this were named something else and not Resident Evil, people would like it. - marmalade_skies
Resident Evil 5 is okay, but 6 is really a load!V 2 Comments
"Other M? " Dear Shadow what does that mean!?
Hello, wasted character development.V 3 Comments
This is a good game not a disappointment
I completely disagree with anyone who puts this on this list.
This shouldn't be here! It's awesome!
WOW I mean WOW really it is great and is said to be the best fallout game it's great and has different ways of cmpleting missions and more and better choce options. But that's all I can really say.V 5 Comments
After the masterpiece that is the first castlevania game, Simon's quest was such a disappointment. It's the most cryptic game ever, and the stupid text boxes when it changes from day to night ruin it. - PCgamer98V 1 Comment
Game was overly hype for a indie game. I say no more. Indie games are indie games.
You do the same thing on every planet gets boring
It makes you think its good but its just notV 4 Comments
I'm gonna explain this game in one word, "Broken".
I wanted to enjoy this game! But city sizes are so small! And the way it is designed, no city ever feels complete. The only thing to do in this game after 15 mins of designing your roads is place parks to affect property values.
The only thing that makes up this game is lag, cheap build, and glitchesV 2 Comments
I expected this game to by the best ever! And I'm not the only one. Hundreds of thousands... Seriously hundreds of thousands thought it would be the best, if not one of the best. This game was a huge disappointment... Activision destroyed my favorite video game company, Bungie, and ruined what could have been a masterpiece!
Disappointing and it had such hype with BUNGIE AND Activision?!?! How did they mess this up?
This game was good way better than any Call of Duty people hate on it because of the fact that it requires teamwork and you can't solo everything and you actually have to do the raids to get the best gear it's cool if you have a group of people the first year wasn't that good but year two was
It's not a bad game, don't get me wrong. It's just that it really didn't live up to all the hype.V 23 Comments
The original 2D Bubsy titles were mediocre at best, but had a few fans left and right. This pretty much not only killed Bubsy, but was in my opinion one of the strong points of what led to the eventual demise of Accolade only a mere 3 years later after this game.
What could possibly go wrong? Use your imagination. - BloodyThunderX
To be honest, the Bubsy franchise sucked from the start, so this wasn't such a disappointment.
What happened to the 2d bubsy games that I loved... ? He's dead because of this horrible game.
So the 2 2D Bubsy games were average, then we get one of the worst games of all Bubsy 3D. - htoutlaws2012
Bad game all around. - SteelCity99V 5 Comments
It is personally my least favorite of the new. super Mario bros series
I only have the "New" WII version. Shame this is on the list.
This has NO POST GAME AT ALL but the story mode is really good though
Its like super mario bros (the first one) But in this there are TONS of gold coins! its like a modded version of the first game!V 6 Comments
2 was great, 3 was great, 4 was good, then after all theses years here is pro skater 5 and holy hell this game is horrible it's even a contender for worst game of 2015. - htoutlaws2012
This game was so bad that they buried it in a landfill lol. The documentary about how bad this game was is actually a good movie, but the game is considered the worst video game of all time!
How is this better then new super Mario bros 2 and SpongeBob heropants? this is trash - jwaughtal
Worst game ever bingo et sucks -
This game had so much hype it was funnyV 5 Comments
You thought finally a true sequel that could redeem the two lazy Ezio spinoffs...
The only assassin creed that disappointed me
I played the Assassin's creed franchise out of order so I found this game pretty good.
You guys suck this is a awesome game
Delayed more than Duke Nukem ForeverV 2 Comments
What is this never heard of this
THIS GAME SUCKS! Its Mario party but not really it has little fun very boring and also has no action like a regular animal crossing game would have. - spodermanfan1000
This game made me tired its terrible
This isn't even a game. I mean, we all play Skyrim, Pokémon, Final Fantasy etc. to have fun, right? But Amiibo Festival isn't fun at all. So what is it then? A non-game?! Anyway, me having a lot of nostalgia from playing Wild World as a kid, I was really exited for the game. I was a bit disapponted that it was going to be a board game, but Happy Home Designer was a fun spinoff and this was Nintendo... It couldn't possibly be that bad, right? Yes, yes, yes. I HATE this game! So here's the formula they went with for this game; take the original Mario Party, add amiibo, takeaway the luck, take away the unique spaces, takeaway the fun and slap on Animal Crossing. Oh, and I almost forgot! There's not a SINGLE minigame in the already boring board game. Every time I see Isabelle walk out of the little train in HD, I'm just sad from the wasted potential. If you want AC, GO PLAY NEW LEAF! It's great. Trust me.V 1 Comment
Very few games were so sorely disappointing as Aliens: Colonial Marines.
It had everything going for it. Finally, a true sequel to the incredible movie Aliens, greenlight by 20th Century Fox themselves to overwrite Alien 3 and be cannon. Previews looked amazing, and it had so much promise. It was a to-die-for recipe for everything fans of the series could ever hope for.
Then... it came out.
It wasn't that it wasn't awe-inspiringly great. It wasn't that it wasn't awesome. It wasn't that it wasn't just good. Or okay. Or even mediocre.
It was bad.
Graphics had been downgraded. It was buggy, boring, repetitive.
As the story unfolded, it had been lazily handed off from company to company with the thought that "they'll finish it and give it back" until no one cared about it anymore. And in the end, it was just rushed together so they could finally deliver and get it out.
What a waste...
Thank god alien isolation came out to save the series
Really buggy A.I that really ruins this game. - htoutlaws2012V 2 Comments
