Top 10 Worst Video Game ReviewersLet's say there is this game you wanna try out but are afraid it might turn out bad. So you listen to a review and you believe them until you find out it was a good game after all. Here are reviewers that suck at reviewing.
Pokémon HG/SS got a lower score because "it's a remake".
The only con of Majora's Mask 3D according to IGN? The water temple. That one con lowered the score to 8.7/10.
What do they think is bad about Pokken Tournament - a fighting game? Is it the sub par voice acting? Nah, of course it's the "overwhelming mechanics".
Now let's look at what they said about Assassin's Creed Unity. Towards the end, the reviewer described it as "revolutionary". Really? The buggy mess that is Unity is revolutionary?
They are the worst reviewers because they'll come up with a bunch of excuses to lower the final score of a game they don't personally like while rating games like Call of Duty and Evolve highly despite them being mediocre for them partnership deals.
If you want a non biased review of a video game, you don't go to IGN. Enough said.
These guys should be #1 half of the time I don't agree with there ratings, even Gamespot is much better only because it isn't biased I mean Halo 4 a 9.8 that's overrating it a little too much don't you think, or basicly any Call of Duty game after Blackops 1 with a high rating is absolutely ridiculous. The sport games they rate way too high example Madden why it's the same game with an updated roster with absolutely no changes which can be said for other sport games.
They gave Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire 7.8/10 for having "too much water" when Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire had just as much "water" and got a 9/10. Not only that, that gave Paper Mario: Sticker Star 8.3/10, while they gave Paper Mario: Color Splash that is essentially the same game except with better graphics and better humor a 7.3/10. No, just no.
I clearly hate IGN for several reasons.
1. They call some games repetitive while they give all Call of Duty games perfect.
2. They give good games bad scores and bad games good scores (usually)
3. They criticize a game for a dumb reason (such as the infamous too much water)
4. They hate the Sonic series.
Clearly 0/10, too much IGN.
This guy just takes good games and just say they are bad. He is obviously one of those first person shooter retarts. He mostly bash Sonic and Nintendo games and only say their music is good.
See the Mario Kart 8 review...
This guy is completely AWFUL at reviewing video games. He screams like a idiot and say things that's in the game but it really isn't. He mostly bash Sonic the most which is no surprise to me what so ever.
I go to watch my favorite YouTubers, Sykoh, play Sonic Heroes (he's great maybe watch him sometime) and Sonic Adventure 2 by Mariotehidiot pops up. I decide to click on it. I hear swearing and just ugh. He is the worst YouTuber ever. Racist, sexist, and just horrible.
He complained about a buckle on sonic I don't see the buckle anywhere
Yeah, he is annoying and swears too much…
Good thing that he came out as a TROLL!
If any game comes in a blue case, you bet your ass it's getting a free pass.
My note is :Mediocre
Whereas I dunno about opinions, his game theories are pretty crappy. He made a theory that Dr. Light from Mega Man is evil, while using Non Canon evidence (the Archie Comics). He tried to use math to claim that Majora's Moon is not a threat, even though Legend of Zelda is a FANTASY series. Finally, I honestly don't know if I wanna take the opinion of a guy who used to make videos theorizing the boob width of game characters, so...
Wikipedia said he was a game critic and if Mr. Enter got on here, MatPat gets on here too.
Fairly harsh for an uninformed opinion. Whilst it is true that metacritic gathers the average opinion on games, they use a system using a significant amount of weighing where the values involved aren't published. As a delightful example reviews submitted by kotaku has a significantly (SIGNIFICANTLY) higher impact on the score (in fact the common belief is kotaku has one of the highest) then other smaller sources.
Which is why I'm also voting metacritic, not only is it widely used as a source of critic score without being properly understood, their business model is incredibly shady and the honestly vast corruption involved in the systems they use cause a much much higher amount of damage then the average reviewer will ever have the ability to do.
I decided to put metacritic in here because I heard that the site itself recieved complaints which is mostly about how they assign game metascores like if you assign an 'A' into a review, then they assign it as a 100 which in my point of view should be at least 90 and that the 100 should applied to an 'A+' because its kind of overrating it too much. Its also that some video game critics give some games a low score that lower than it should be and that it has several complaints due to how unfair it is and that's what I don't like and why I put this into this list.
Anybody who votes Metacritic is a moron. It's literally just a tool for getting a comprehensive summary of the average opinion of a game, the same thing Rotten Tomatoes does for movies. They don't even review games. They just tell you what other people think of them.
You get the most reviews on there so that's helpful if you come across a game you want to check out bad or good.
His early reviews were short, but informed discussions of interesting games, but the last year or two his output has ceased to be worth watching. It seems like he is chasing YouTube metrics at the expense of quality
They barely review games but that doesn't stop me from putting them here. They are also the same people that called the Wii U Nintendo's biggest mistake, make Goku lose TWICE against Superman in Death battle, and called Sonic Boom worster than (I'm not even kidding) Superman 64 and Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis. No wonder Screw Attack is now getting a little bit of hate. Screw them.
Everything older went downhill, and so ScrewAttack!
The only reason I watch is for death battles.
According to Screwattack, windwaker is the worst zelda gamer ever.
You take everything (including Archie sonic) too seriously then Mr. Enter. Archie sonic doesn't deserve to be cancelled. The games went down hill after colors. you should read meltingman234's review of sonic colors in the description of his anti sonic colours stamp & watch his 3 part sonic retrospective so you can find out why he still read the comics before the cancellation. I know him more than you do.
When I read his Archie Sonic reviews, there was just something about this guy that rubbed me the wrong way. I think it was his unnecessary vitriol where it may not be warranted and lack of ability to handle disagreement.. Mixedfan just does not seem like a erson you would want to talk to.. at all.
This is a Message for you mixedfan8643. You shouldn't take everything too seriously. Don't hate something too seriously it's okay to hate something (including sonic boom & teen titans go) just don't do it.
His sonic unleashed review & some of his Archie sonic reviews are okay. They are way better then his hideous spongebob Squarepants the Simpsons & family guy review.
Truly the worst reviewer of all time, as he decides which games are good or bad and mostly most of them suck. He has been a rip off of the AVGN for a long time and should be number one.
How on earth was this guy not on here to begin with?
Yeah I put my own self on here. My reviews are pretty bad yet I still make more. I take videos off of YouTube and talk over them calling them my "reviews". I also sound so mellow and I barely edit my reviews. I also try to be funny but the jokes never works. Yeah...when I call myself a terrible reviewer, you know it's bad.
So what if he prefers Sonic over Mario that's fine, what do you have against him? He isn't a brat, either. You can't hate on someone because they dislike what you like! come on ~Gunsn'Shadowhedgehogz
You aren't bad. You are better than Kitten2015
... Well I guess you could be biased but...
This guy tries to review games that he has no idea how to play, and he let's his stream chat walk him through basically the whole game. If he gets stuck and the chat can't help him, he just quits the game. Plus, he complains about people making TIHYDP videos, but if he didn't suck so much they wouldn't have to.
Worst let's player ever... He also does reviews so he can be here.
All about their videos about games are biased and talks down on games that don't deserve. Hitman Absolution is sexist because you can kill strippers and position their bodies around? You can do that for anyone regardless of sex, race and class.
But the worst is their reviews because they talk about the little, unimportant things in the games and barely talk about any of the gameplay, graphics and sound. If you want an example, watch their Rise of the TOMB RAIDER review.
The epitome of uninformed, Feminist Frequency has a tendency to make up whatever bs to get people who haven't a grasp on common gaming knowledge on their side. I may not like the death threats they recieve, but I also don't tolerate blind stupidity, so Feminist Frequency deserves a spot in the top 10 for me.
Hey people this what I would do if I want Youngdefiant to be gone(Send a Note to YouTube."Dear YouTube, There is a Youtuber Named youngdefiant. Youngdefiant is a selfish YouTuber who calls himself the king of YouTube and thinks he is better than everyone else. You want to know why I called him selfish, it is because He makes fun of us and calls us fake gamers and called his self a real gamer he also he hated on his own subscribers for no reason. And I Think I know why he wants to call himself the king of Youtube, It's because he wants to make us to feel bad for our selfs and get rid of all our YouTube channels so he could be the only YouTuber around here. Youngdefiant blamed the people that do rants on him even if it's his fault. So YouTube can you please block his channel and sue him." From The Youtubers.
This dude thinks he's the greatest gamer of all time when the only games he plays are anime games and hates all nintendo games, wow, and he thinks he is better than anyone else
Often poorly researched and offering a knee jerk reaction to the video games industry. His input is often in the same vein as the loudest person on a steam forum. Believes himself to be the voice of the people whilst showing a disdain for the people. A terrible reviewer but somewhat likeable person.
One of the most stuck up reviewers of all time, he thinks he's the only honest video game reviewer left, yet his videos have no structure and are completely biased.
A complete hypocrite, and overall moron that I don't actually think likes video games deep down.
He doesn't like anything.
1. He doesn't review games.
2. His reviews themselves aren't too bad. Yeah, he's not the best with his temper at times, but at least he has enough self awareness to realize if he screwed up. His reviews are also pretty good ones, since he covers a lot of flaws and information, and he doesn't show much, if any, bias.
3. To anyone who says that he's a disgrace to NC or whatever, please realize that there's more than one reviewer, and there are reviewers that came before them.
I will admit he's still doing decent now compared to the others on this list but now he's getting... A little bit boring now. He starting doing re-reviews because "his older ones ain't so good because he was so angry". Who cares?
There are worse reviewers than mr enter. I don't hate him but I used to be a hater of him a immature but I'm still not a fan of him.
I thought he just made crappy, boring reviews on animation while getting angry.
How? I agree mostly with the RTS reviews even though he destroyed civilization 5 and total war 2 AND angry joe actually put battlefield the cops and robbers one as one of the worst games of 2015. So your points are invalid. Also he barely reviews Call of Duty so you cannot get so salty because of the advanced warfare review. Or the over watch review. by the way ever heard of the witcher franchise s? I would say he loves those games.
Simply biased to all hell in every single way towards anything that isn't Battlefield or an RTS. Simple as that.
These guy are not that good at reviewing. They are almost at IGN's level of suck. Thanks to to popular reviewers like SomecallmeJohnny, X-play is going down the market.
While he is no longer on YouTube, He is the most hateful, mean-spirited, biased, and unpleasant game reviewer I have seen. He has no respect for his viewers, and he even insulted them, and was very condescending to them for half of his videos. He always jumps around multiple topics when talking about one thing, and repeatedly explodes over the smallest of details.
His revisit on Wrath of Cortex was one of his worst examples of how horrible he sounds as a reviewer.
While Jim used to be great, his ranting has gone way too far, especially from the beginning to 2021.
While I agree with his point that members of the LGBTQIA community should be treated better, the way he explains his points is downright abysmal. His research is poor at best, his rants are tiresome and repetitive, and his reaction to criticism is childish.
Again, I agree with most of his beliefs. However, at the end of the day, I cannot stand a man who constantly complains and moans, while also refusing to listen to valid criticism for his channel.
If you line up his reviews with those from other sources for a long list of games, you will see a noticeable pattern - his scores are consistently contrary to the popular direction of appeal. His only consistent tendency when reviewing is that he is a contrarian, seeking to elevate games the community finds problems with and damage those with universal appeal. He doesn't review to tell us a game's value, but to get attention. This is why he can't be trusted.
He gave Mario Kart 7 a 5 out of 10 for being basically the same game as Mario Kart Wii, and yet gave Call of Duty MW3 a 9.3 out of 10.
