Top 10 Video Games that are the Biggest Cash Grabs

The good, the bad and the cash grabs... Here are games that ask for your money

The Top Ten

1 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Product Image

Yes most definitely, I mean your releasing a game with no story, and adding in a popular feature from another popular game that just shows we (as in Activision) want money nothing more, nothing less. - htoutlaws2012

You could pretty much put the entire franchise on this list, since there isn't much of a difference between the older entries and the newer ones.

I'm hoping they tie up the series' loose ends and go out with a bang with this next installment, be it MW4 or Ghosts 2. I'm no Call of Duty hater, but dangit if Activision doesn't need to just move on, work on other things, and set an end to their series.

End the series

2 Star Wars Battlefront II Star Wars Battlefront II Product Image
3 Angry Birds Angry Birds Product Image

Crush the Castle rip off. You could definitely tell they were desperate when they made that movie, during a time when nobody played Angry Birds anymore. - Smash64

I still played it when the movie came out cause I was like 7 at the time and I was a fan of the series at the time. - myusernameisthis

4 Action 52 Action 52 Product Image
5 Skylanders Skylanders Product Image

Man Skylanders was awesome 7 years ago. It was actually fun until they made the 3rd and fourth one, at which they had run out of ideas for new characters. - MattAffterburner

Plain cash-grab. - TriggerTrashKid

6 Minecraft Story Mode Minecraft Story Mode Product Image

Why are you surprised? It was planned to be a century long game, the only way I see it slowing down is if Hytale completely overshadows it.

7 The Sims The Sims Product Image
8 JumpStart World JumpStart World Product Image

Why do you need a membership for this game?! It was single player damnit!

9 Resident Evil 2 Resident Evil 2 Product Image
10 Apex Legends Apex Legends Product Image

The Contenders

11 Disney Infinity Disney Infinity Product Image
12 LEGO Dimensions LEGO Dimensions Product Image

Literally a waste. - B1ueNew


13 Halo: The Master Chief Collection Halo: The Master Chief Collection Product Image
14 Roblox

I love roblox, but it feels like a cash grab and I think the administration is just bad - TuxIsAPerson

They removed Tix so they could steal your money

I hate roblox. I absolutely hate it. - myusernameisthis

You can’t earn Robux for free and therefore you have to pay real money for clothing

15 Fortnite Fortnite Product Image

This is so much of a cash grab it went in many of the newly released popular ads, movies and shows in 2018 and 2019 with examples being their floss dance, gameplay footage, cameos, artwork, the word Fortnite and more.

You have to pay just to change the way your character looks.

16 Clash of Clans
17 Medal of Honor Medal of Honor Product Image
18 Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival Product Image

This Mario Party rip off only exists so that people will buy Amiibos.

Horrible game. Why amiibos? - TriggerTrashKid

19 Mario Party 10 Mario Party 10 Product Image
20 FIFA 19 FIFA 19 Product Image
21 Fallout 76 Fallout 76 Product Image
22 Webkinz World

You have to buy either a stuffed animal or a Deluxe Membership to do almost anything.

Webkinz used to be amazing! Don’t get me wrong, it still is. However, now you have to pay for EVERYTHING, it feels like Webkinz World is desperate to make money. Still a good game though with a great community.

23 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Product Image

It wasn't necessarily a cash grab, just very rushed. - Smash64

24 New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe Product Image

Made for the Switch. This is already on Wii U, and if this is a remake, at least not 60 Bucks! - TriggerTrashKid

$60 for a game that came out 6 years ago. I don’t mind Wii U ports but Nintendo seriously overprices these ports. - RadioHead03

25 Radical Heights Radical Heights Product Image

Rip-off of fortnite - myusernameisthis

Terrible battle royale. - TriggerTrashKid
