Top 10 Video Game Companies With the Most Annoying Fanbases


The Top Ten

1 Activision Activision Activision Publishing, Inc. is an American video game publisher. It was founded on October 1, 1979 and was the world's first independent developer and distributor of video games for gaming consoles.

I understand the point of this list, but it seems rather unnecessary to include Activision or Sega on this list, since it's really just one franchise of each of the two game companies that have the very annoying fans. Have you ever heard of very annoying fans of Shenmue, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Jet Grind Radio, Vectorman, or Virtua Fighter?

They have a lot of once a year games like Call of Duty and skylanders that died

Is it still 2015? Their fanbase is almost dead now.

Call of Duty fanboys... I don't think I need to explain anything more than that. - Mcgillacuddy

Stupid company making people pay $60 on a upgrade for a weapon in a video game. - RadioHead03

This has a fanbase - Maddox121

Wait. They have a fanbase? - DarkBoi-X

3 Nintendo Nintendo Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and software company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan.

Okay, I like Nintendo. They make great games. They make fun games, but fans treat them as the GODS of the gaming industry. Like any other gaming company, they have their flaws. Stop treating them like every single game they make is a masterpiece! I also can't stand Mario Kart fans! There are kart games that are better than ANYTHING Mario Kart has released (CTR, Sonic & All-Stars Racing), but every time they do release, people always use MK as the standard to judging the game instead of looking at it as its own thing. Gaming media like IGN and Gamespot ALWAYS mention MK whenever they review a kart game, always pandering to that series. Just shut the hell up about Mario Kart already! Nintendo is a great company, but they are not PERFECT. - Mcgillacuddy

I am a Mario Kart fan myself. I am not offended by this comment, as I agree with the judging and stuff. I do judge and look at the games themselves, but at least I am not those controversial whippersnappers. I don't mind if everyone mentions Mario Kart, unless it is constantly.

I don't think every game is perfect, but I see what you are pointing out. - DKartWoomy

I won't deny how revolutionary they've been to the gaming industry back in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, nor how ridiculously top-notch most of their game library in general has been in terms of overall quality (Super Metroid being released all the way back in 1994 and single-handedly becoming one of THE all-time largest sub-franchises in video game history, along with 1990's Super Mario World, thanks to ROM hacks, for example)...
but my GOD, has this company devolved into a complete nostalgia-obsessed, Mario-milking meme-lord (as much as I love the new Smash Bros games, the absolutely RIDICULOUS amount of hype surrounding those games isn't exactly helping Nintendo's case in that regard either, nor is the fact that they are STILL making embarrassingly underpowered consoles apart from the 3DS; seriously, how DARE they after how powerful the Gamecube was for its time) - xandermartin98

I'm a huge Nintendo fan. I spend a lot of time with the Nintendo community and I can say from experience that they can be awfully annoying. - Atham

They and Epic Games both honestly need to be higher on this list. - PerfectImpulseX

4 Sega Sega Sega Games Co., Ltd., originally short for Service Games and officially styled as SEGA, is a Japanese multinational video game developer and publisher headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, with multiple offices around the world.

The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise has one of the worst fanbases in the gaming industry. Okay, yeah, I do love the Sonic franchise. I loved Sonic CD, Sonic 3, Generations, Mania, All-Stars Racing, Colors, Riders, Rush, Unleashed... well, yeah the series has had a lot of great releases under its belt, but it's also had AWFUL releases! Sonic Forces is one of the most overrated games I've ever played, and it's all thanks to the heavily persistent fanbase, trying so hard to convince you that the game brought the series back. No. No it didn't. Sonic Mania is what brought it back. Sonic Forces is an unfinished mess. It's not crazy bad, but if you're comparing it to the standards of Sonic Generations or Unleashed, that game ain't shizz. - Mcgillacuddy

Dude you sound upset over petty things, is something bothering you?

I'm just explaining how I feel about these things. It makes the list more interesting and relatable for the masses. - Mcgillacuddy

Sonic fanbase. - RadioHead03

Especially back in the 90s when they we're super biased towards Nintendo. - LightningStrike

5 Microsoft Microsoft Microsoft Studios is the video game production wing for Microsoft, responsible for the development and publishing of games for the Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Games for Windows, Steam, Windows Store, and Windows Phone platforms.

Microsoft also has a terrible fanbase. - RadioHead03

Like Sony, Microsoft fanboys ignore all major issues they do, including them making big deals over SMALL things such an email change. - codgtamk34

I've seen some of the best examples of the worst fanbases with Microsoft. I've seen it with Sony's fanbase too, but Microsoft fanboys are on another level when it comes to being the worst fanbase. They keep talking about the Xbox One X and it's 4K 60 fps. Worst part is, they keep harassing gamers who bought a PS4 instead of an Xbox One. Like seriously, those Microsoft fanboys forget the bigger picture and what really matters, which is that it doesn't matter which console people use. It's a matter of taste. It's like they need validation for the choice they made when they bought an Xbox. - RogerMcBaloney

6 2K Games 2K Games 2K Games, Inc. is an American global developer, marketer, distributor and publisher of video games, like Borderlands, Civilization V, The Darkness, NBA 2K and more recently, WWE 2K.

Like Activision, I'll sum it up with this:

"NBA 2K fanboys"
No need to say anymore than that. - Mcgillacuddy

7 Mojang Mojang Mojang AB is a Swedish video game developer founded in May 2009 under the name Mojang Specifications by game programmer Markus Persson, best known for creating the popular independent game Minecraft, a sandbox game.
8 Epic Games

Nah, more like one of the most annoying hater bases

These are the guys who made Fortnite. Enough said, really.

85% of the fanbase are 12 years old or under. 15% is 13+ - codgtamk34

9 Square Enix Square Enix Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. is a Japanese video game developer, publisher, and distribution company that is best known for its role-playing video game franchises, which include the Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Kingdom Hearts role-playing game series.

Square Enix is a very reliable company. I've always been a Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts fan, and they've released many other outstanding games like Tomb Raider, NieR: Automata, and Hitman. But like Nintendo, their major fanbase is quite annoying as they treat the company like they're so perfect, yet they are NOT. They've released many stinkers in their lineup, and honestly, I actually believe that they are starting to veer off too much into paid DLC practices. - Mcgillacuddy

10 Ubisoft Ubisoft Ubisoft Entertainment SA is a French multinational video game developer and publisher, headquartered in Rennes, France.

Every person that plays ubi games is toxic including me

The Contenders

11 Roblox Corp. Roblox Corp.
12 Rockstar Games Rockstar Games Rockstar Games, Inc. is a multinational video game developer and publisher best known for their Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead, Midnight Club, Max Payne, Bully, and Manhunt games.

Uninspired, boring, repetitive games with crappy online that try to make up for it with excessive violence.

I guess I am annoying as well, because I am a die-hard fan of Rockstar Games. They screwed up with Red Dead Online, but I honestly could care less because the base game is outstanding, and I fully trust them with Grand Theft Auto VI. Again, considering their failure with Red Dead Online, they aren't perfect like any company out there. They have their flaws, but they still are a very dedicated company that actually gives a crap about giving audiences some solid material instead of half-assing everything they do like other companies. - Mcgillacuddy

Does not need to be #2 on the best game companies list, but thanks to its abundance of annoying fans, it is.

The two residents fanboys here prove it

13 Sony Sony Sony Corporation, commonly referred to as Sony, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in K┼Źnan Minato, Tokyo, Japan.

I like Sony, but the fanbase is ungrateful. - RadioHead03

They always start fights with the Nintendo and Microsoft fandoms and it's annoying. - myusernameisthis

Their fanbase defends everything they do including (they fixed some things):
Supporting SJWs
Blocking Fortnite Accounts
Refusing to add cross play
Censoring games
No Refunds

They approved a bootleg

15 Infinity Ward Infinity Ward Infinity Ward is an American video game developer. They developed the video game Call of Duty, along with five other installments in the Call of Duty series.
16 Bethesda Bethesda Bethesda Game Studios is an American in-house development team at Bethesda Softworks established in 2002. Previously synonymous with parent publisher Bethesda Softworks, the studio's name and logo were established with the release of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in 2002. The studio is currently more.

Fanboys still defending 76 and claiming we haters never played it. We did and did not like it. - codgtamk34

When Fallout 76 was announced at E3 last year, a lot of fanboys were angry at those who did not want an online-only Fallout and even said "Todd Howard said you can play solo". That's not single-player or offline, its STILL online! I'm in the 50% who did not want an online Fallout...

23 Naughty Dog Naughty Dog
24 CD Projekt RED CD Projekt RED

Fanbase claims the company is modest and generous but it isn't. And they praise the games as second coming of Christ! If your games are so great as you say, doesn't mean that games from other companies are worse than games from your "lord and saviour of video games" company!
PS: Geralt is WEAK! Just like Infinite from Sonic Forces ;p
