Most Disappointing Video Games of All Time


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Cave Story 3D

Yes, ironically, the creators are charging $40 for this game when a lot of the money probably doesn't even go to Studio Pixel and you can easily buy the 3DS E-Shop version (which is actually the all-time best version of this game) for about one-quarter the price. - xandermartin98

Cave Story is easily, by far, one of the best games of all time, but about this version...
1) The original retail price. $40 FOR AN INDIE GAME?!
2) The remade graphics look really lazy and also lazily animated.
3) No Curly mode (? )
4) No Wind Fortress?
5) You can easily buy this game on the 3DS Virtual Console E-Shop.

I've submitted Cave Story 3D as a special prize for my school's next marketing period, but damn is it a disappointingly rushed handheld port of this game. If Ocarina Of Time and Majora's Mask were able to fit onto the 3DS hardware, why couldn't the creators be bothered to at least simply squeeze a few extra bonus features into a 1-megabyte game? - xandermartin98

62 SpongeBob SquarePants: SpongeBob Heropants

After how awesome the first SB movie game was, and how awesome SOOW was, it was with great disappointment that I say this is the worst SpongeBob game ever made. - Garythesnail

Am I seriously the only one who likes this game? - jwaughtal

63 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

This was absolutely stunning. It's easily on of the best. The game has excellent graphics, weapons and a dope landscape. Good for multi. 9/10 - AlphaQ

One of the best if not the best Call of Duty game why is this on here.

Definitely was a disappointing game after MW2, then the franchise just kept getting weaker after that.

64 Sacred 3
65 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

This was so disappointing. The graphics are good and it's in space but the weapons are crap compared to the rest of Call of Duty games. Very awful and is Black Ops gone bad. 2/10 - AlphaQ

66 Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite
67 Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto 5 is the best Grand Theft Auto game

If your mad kill something in Grand Theft Auto 5 if your bored rob something this game is great

There is no way the map is bigger than San Andreas. - doodie

Who the hell put this here

68 The Order: 1886

I want to like this game, but it's just so... Short.

WAY to short! Massive disappointment and rip off!

Like how short

69 Rollercoaster Tycoon 4: Mobile Edition
70 Super Mario 64

Only problem is no luigi. - Dman1972

71 Doom (2016)

For all those doom hate I have one thing to say "to hell with you"

At least it's better than doom 3

I am a HUGE fan of the Doom games from 1993-2004. Great puzzles, enemy infighting, you get it. But this Open Beta is just appealing to the console fanboys by adding ridiculous amounts of gore, underpowered enemies, underpowered weapons (the plasma gun sounds like a unicorn farting! ), fatalities, paintable doomguy armor, and it barely resembles a doom game. The only thing that I like is that you can play as a baron of hell, or revenant. - doodie

WHAAT? I'm sorry, but who is the retarded that put this on the list? this is pure awesomeness, was'nt dissapointing AT ALL (i was suprised)

73 Fallout 4

Heavily dumbed down dialogue system and RPG elements (no karma/rep, no skills, etc.), huge lack of freedom compared to previous titles, lack of gun and armor variety, 3 of the 4 endings are the same, and it has a plothole-filled main story. Good game, but horrible Fallout game.

74 Tomodachi Life
75 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
76 Final Fantasy XIII

Why isn't this higher if it's the worst ff game bisides its two sequels - ikerevievs

77 Rollercoaster Tycoon 3d

I was about to add Mario Party 9 to the list, but then I saw this game. I had always wanted a handheld Roller Coaster Tycoon. I can barely even play the game anymore because my computers are pretty bad. And someone lost my copy of RCT2 (I have a big family). I was ready to play Roller Coaster Tycoon again, on my own handheld, with nobody messing with my data or anything. And it turned out to be the worst video game I have ever played, hands down.

78 Virtua Tennis Challenge

Talk about the lack of imaginativity on the developer team. This game resorts to winning at all costs. Not only does the AI player start hitting unrealistic shots. SEGA controls your player's shots from placement to pace.

79 Jak 2

To be truthful, Jak 2 was good if only the first was not that way. Sorry Jak fans but the first Jak game was the best in the series. Jak 2 was a downgrade.

Why is this on here!? - Zombieguy745

80 Halo 5: Guardians

What made halo different back in the day was that it was split screen for campaign and this one doesn't even have that and just saying the 4th one was not that bad

4 was a lot more disappointing

Not nearly as disappointing as 4. - htoutlaws2012
