Video Games That Are Just Cash GrabsThe good, the bad and the cash grabs... Here are games that ask for your money
The Top Ten
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
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
Huh? This game is free, the only in app purchases are the power ups. - myusernameisthis
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
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.
Why do you need a membership for this game?! It was single player damnit!
This is awesome. I would sell myself for this game. - TriggerTrashKid
This is not really a cash grab. - B1ueNew
This is not a cash grab. - RadioHead03
Not a cash grab - ElSherlock
Any remake of something popular from the past is a cash grab. Otherwise they would've just made a new and original game. - RobertWisdom
It's decent in my opinion. - B1ueNew
Good game. - RadioHead03
I like it. - TriggerTrashKid
It’s free. - Not_A_Weeaboo
Literally a waste. - B1ueNew
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
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.
This Mario Party rip off only exists so that people will buy Amiibos.
Horrible game. Why amiibos? - TriggerTrashKid
This game is okay in my opinion, I loved it as a kid, now I barely play it at all. - myusernameisthis
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.
It wasn't necessarily a cash grab, just very rushed. - Smash64
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
Rip-off of fortnite - myusernameisthis
Terrible battle royale. - TriggerTrashKid
If were talking about the mobile version than yes, total cashgrab. - RadioHead03
EA! Please stop! - TriggerTrashKid
Amazing game, but cost so much money!
This is just a stupid game. - TriggerTrashKid
You have to buy a membership to do almost anything.
Same as Animal Jam. Thank goodness it shut down.
You have to pay for power ups and energy to retry levels
You have to buy VIP membership to do almost anything
You have to buy a membership to do a lot of things
Only made to compete with the lovable Jump Man and the Blue Blur. Gosh, did people actually fall for this game being a good game?
Who thought Konami would do this? - TriggerTrashKid
That "free" is a big lie
Watered down version of yellow with bad forced motion controls. It's also two versions instead of one.
