Most Disappointing Video Games of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Mighty No. 9

After an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, fans were hyped for the true spiritual successor to the Mega Man franchise. After years of waiting, hoping, and funding, we were left with a game with boring level design, boring gameplay, and Mega Man 8 level of bad voice acting. This game had so much potential, and it ultimately flopped.

Basically megaman meets anime. Bad voice acting, and bad gameplay. Just don't buy it. - WarioMan

Delayed more than Duke Nukem Forever

Why isn't this in at least the Top 5 of this list? - PerfectImpulseX

22 Naruto Shippūden 3D: The New Era
23 Fallout New Vegas

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!

The fact that this is above BO3 and Destiny Makes me loses some faith in this site - christangrant

24 Assassin's Creed III

You thought finally a true sequel that could redeem the two lazy Ezio spinoffs...

The only assassin creed that disappointed me

You guys suck this is a awesome game

I played the Assassin's creed franchise out of order so I found this game pretty good.

25 Alone in the Dark: Illumination

Should be renamed together in the light frustration - ikerevievs

Atari took a classic series and ruined it - ikerevievs

26 Five Nights at Freddy's 3

This game is not that scary at all

Who asked for four of these trashy games - Gunner224

27 WWE 13

What is this never heard of this


28 Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below

I wish this game was just called dragon quest heros naybe more people would buy it

29 Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival

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.

30 Minecraft Story Mode

Why need a story? Isn't the point of Minecraft is to explore wherever you'd like and do anything?

This is not disappointing, this is great but season two is better

This game sucks! Minecraft doesn't need a story. The story is up to the player.

It's actually very good

31 Mario Party: Island Tour

Ugh I thought this game would be good. Isn't Mario Party games awesome well this game will change your mind. The games have poor gameplay and poor map designs. And it feels like the npcs have more of a chance of defeating you. - spodermanfan1000

Uggg one reason why Nintendo should buy hudsonsoft off konami, to make better Mario party games

This game disappointed me. The worst part is that the RNG is terrible on my cartridge. I keep getting numbers BELOW 3. And the game is boring. The only fun gamemodes are unlocked later, and I found a total of 1 FUN GAMEMODE. Nintendo you should be ashamed of yourself. - WarioMan

32 Super Mario Bros. 2

Hey why is this on the list just because it wasn't a true Mario game doesn't mean it was bad. - ZZDOORAL

The charm of this game is that it was different from the first one. The gameplay was really good and many enemies became regulars in future Mario games.

Just because It's Weird Doesn't Mean It's Bad - BeatlesFan1964

Just because the japanese one isn't released in america, and has to be replaced with a reskin of an existing game, doesn't make bad. that's like saying every single rom hack in the world is bad cause it's a rom hack. - WarioMan

33 Star Wars: Battlefront

I've never been so disappointed in a game my entire life. The beta was a blast to play, but when the game came out and I played it for a few hours it got super dry and boring. No PVE content, no space battles and lots of repetitive maps and gameplay. DLC's didn't help either. The sequel better be better!

The original games were so good, the second being my favourite Star Wars game (sorry KOTOR fans) but this game is an insult. No space battles, different troopers, or even a campaign or split screen multiplayer online. Even the multiplayer isn't that good. Only 3 heroes per side, Palpatine absolutely sucks and Luke vs Vader feels like banging 2 toys together. There is no flow and nothing from the prequels (some argue that's a good thing, but who doesn't want to play as Darth Maul? ) Overrall, this was wasted potential. A remaster of the first 2 games would've done the series more justice.

Should be in the top five. It has been abandoned by the developer 15 months after release unfinished and to top that with a slap in the face 90% of it will be unplayable when the low playerbase leaves & the online is shutdown, the other 10% is shallow unfinished rubbish.

You need ps plus to play this on ps4 - Sparkjolt

34 Heavy Rain
35 Star Fox Adventures

That's not how you spell Star Fox Command.

Just because the Star Fox 64 elitists hate it, doesn't mean you should listen to them.

This game is awesome - VicarSlayer23

36 Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness

Great game I love tomb raider

37 Assassin's Creed Unity
38 Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

I was actually expecting this to be great but sega screawed us over and gave us a crappy game - ikerevievs

39 Mass Effect 3

Ending aside this entry is fantastic. I was more disappointing when I played 2 and realized they had removed ALL weapons and armor collecting from the first game.

Taking away charm and likable characters you grew to love over 2 games to boring incarcerates and making the past 2 games lair's

The ending enough said. - htoutlaws2012

I know people don't like the endings (although I did) but you judge the entire game not taking in account the 98% of the game, some of the best story arcs in gaming like curing the Genophage or the Quarian-Geth conflict [to name a few] were awful too? To each his own I guess...
