Top Ten Video Games that Were Ruined by Their Fanbases

Everyone knows that Video Games are one of the most popular sources of fun and enjoyment. So it's great when you make a video game and it gets recognized and popular, but If it gets too popular, There is the chance of a fanbase coming along and some of the people in the fanbase will make cringeworthy content about it. Examples of Cringey Content Include These: Fan Art, Fan Fiction, Idolization, Videos of screaming kids, and more.

The Top Ten Video Games that Were Ruined by Their Fanbases

1 Cuphead

Don't pick at this game. think it through it is awesome because they brought back older styles of animation like looney toons or Oswald the rabbit I'm 13 by the way

The comment never mentioned bringing old cartoons back. It said that brought back the animation style of them

Based on what I heard from RetroNemo of The Roundtable, this game was already destined to have its fan base start making porn of it in a few months after it came out. I'm not going to let my curiosity get the best of me on this one...

I've heard that Grim Matchstick and Cala Maria are the ones most popular with porn artists, which is still enough to scare me away from this game already. However, the shipping of Cuphead and Mugman is what truly traumatizes me. Just because they are brothers doesn't mean it is appropriate to ship them together.

2 Bendy and the Ink Machine

I adore the game's art style. I despise the weird fanart.

Bendy fans! Whyy!

Mocking ruin the old school fan

3 Minecraft

Minecraft has become one of the most - if not, the most popular game of all time. It was doing pretty well until somewhere in 2014 or 2015. some of the kids that are fans of minecraft loved the game so much, they worship the it and consider people who hate minecraft as... Well let's just say that they hate them back. There is now awful parody songs, animations, Trends in the game, and times where gold is called Butter. It sounds pretty ridiculous for a sandbox building game to end up like this, but there is a thing called being too popular, and I have to say that unfortunately, Minecraft has suffered this. - SpectralOwl

This is my favorite game, I've been playing since 2012 or 2014 Still fun updates keep it good - FallenBlaze

A list of things created to destroy the IMAGINATIVE game of minecraft:

-Butter (Which is gold being called butter by little squeakers)
-Squeeedsss (Little squeakers again)
-Terrible Songs (Because of these, minecraft went from an imaginative game, to a game where if you didn't kill a mob with a cool stunt, you were LAME)
-Ugly Animations (These were used as the scenes in the terrible songs, with the only good animation in my opinion being Fat Herobrine)

That was my list, tfgfrfder5tfd4thjhyygfr. - BurritoSeal

Those little kids has turned minecraft into cancer. It is like the north korea in the game world. There are stupid parody songs and youtubers and A LOT MORE and they started worshio notch and of course, skydoesminecraft. The fanbase probably hadn't allowed OPINIONS, probably the same reason. That has ruined minecraft, SpectralOwl was right. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Youtubers like Super Minecraft Kid and SkyDoesMinecraft just ruin the game! Mostly the kids! I'm 10 years old, but I'm not annoying like the 8 year olds! - Datguyisweird666

4 Five Nights at Freddy's

I am with you,SpectralOwl,I hate the fans,but I like FNAF.It's just the disgusting stuff the fandom does to this game.

How do people ship horror games?

This fan base died months ago

I hate FNAF. That's not just because of the game itself, but the fans. This game was supposed to be scary, but it is not anymore due to the fanart of the animatronics and the people who worship the game. This franchise got so popular that FNAF World was made and now a MOVIE?! I believe that this game was fine without a fanbase like this

5 Call of Duty
6 Sonic the Hedgehog

Modern Sonic fan brats...Modern Sonic fan brats everywhere. These idiots have NO respect for anyone who dislikes the modern games, and will go out of their way to let the world know how upset they are just because people don't like the modern games. These are the very same losers who sit around in their grungy roach-infested apartments all day long bashing classic Sonic,but if someone dares to say one little negative word about their precious modern Sonic, these fan brats will throw a massive temper tantrum and start bullying/harassing/making fun of those who rightfully hate modern Sonic. I wouldn't be too surprised if these fan brats get triggered by Sonic being short and fat with peach colored arms. I hate the modern day Sonic fans because they act like it's illegal to hate modern Sonic. They NEVER listen to anyone when told that people have a right to hate modern Sonic.

Are you kidding? No one even likes Modern Sonic anymore. If anything, Modern Sonic is overhated.

I hate the fans that create crazy shippings and make crazy fan art

It sucks when fans cross Sonic over with many old cartoons.

Get this to number one, lol.

7 Fortnite: Battle Royale

Fanbase is one of the reasons. There is so much to the game being trash. Worst game ever.

It wasnt the fanbase it was just that people already hated it, but its dead now - FallenBlaze

It's like 11 year olds being a noob and one angry kid cried cause he got trapped in a tent.

As Comic Book Guy would say "Worst Battle Royale Game Ever"

8 Roblox

I Do not even like this game, and the fans could be part of the reason. That's it.

ROBLOX is cancer at least it comes with bleach

This fun game has one of the most terrible community.

Roblox is a bad enough but the fanbases ruin it. It's wrong now like people on Roblox have Relationships (even though one of them is like 7 or summat) and disturbing stuff. Roblox fanbases are so bad they ruined Scratch (75% at the least, the other thing is Warrior Cats). They ruined Scratch by saying rude stuff like "this game sucks" one legendary scratcher Splo deleted his account because of them. They are noobs and they start dabbing in 2018 it died in 2016.

9 Doki Doki Literature Club!

Monika is a disgrace

The game is great but the fandom... oh god

They spam "Just Monika" too much

@Discord1 I didn't knew that the characters are adults since I thought that they were teens at first

DDLC was good, until Weebs, Game Theory and 9 year olds touch it. spamming "Just Monika" jokes that ruined it, not just that, but the memes, however some are ok but most of them are cringe worthy and some ruined it for me, and the worst of all, all my God, the fetish and the lawd, I kid you not, you'll not wanna see this, I've seen rule 34 of Sayori and Natsuki kissing striped, they're suppose to be shipped as friends not lovers, and there's even an fetish mod for this game, don't look it up unless you want to suffer, the mod is called (That Special Day WG) that made me bleach my eyes, and made me disgust, here's what happen, I was looking through images for my project until I saw a picture of Monika being Immobile being stuff by food surrounding in her room, this made me throw up and feeling uneasy more then the game, I say Dan Salvato did a great job on this game, however I don't feel like playing it again after what saw.

10 Undertale

The fandom made me not give the game a chance thankfully once the fandom died then I saw what a masterpiece this game is

I'm not a fangirl. People need to stop ruining video games! Undertale was a Amazing game, with good story lines, wonderful characters, Catchy music and was well made...but now... it's ruined by it's own fanbase, I think Undertale would've been better off if people just kept their ships to themselves and leave this game alone...

Some friends of mine say they hate it when the played it and loved it. I asked why, and they said that the game is excellent but the fanbase is horrible.

Undertale was a cute little game, but after one playthrough I was done. Some of the fans have blown it out of proportion, and now you can't view a YouTube comment section on any video without seeing a Sans account.

The Contenders

11 Super Smash Bros.

Letting the fanbase decide on a (sadly permanent) character was the worst business decision ever

One half is "Melee was better! All new SSB games are trash! " While the other is the Rosalina, Peach, and Daisy wars that I don't even wanna go in to. The rest is just people who take the game too seriously and they will type in Caps Lock if something isn't to their liking, and a tiny sliver is people who just play the game.

Funny how only about 2% of the fanbase actually plays the games

I love these games (Brawl and onward because I never played Melee). They’re so fun to play.

12 Dark Souls III

Good game but ruined by cringy fanbase.

13 Pokemon

Decent idea, awful execution, horrible games, bad anime, horrendous fanbase. Never met a single fan I liked or fully respected.

Well, actually only the ones that continually(and hypocritically) hate on the newer generations for literally no reason other than making themselves feel good.

Millennials like the nostalgia. But called a Genwunner. (Even if they might have played gens after the first generation)

14 Hello Neighbor

Fgteev, trinity and beyond, etc, turn this game from a horror game, to a kid friendly disaster.

15 Overwatch

There's always an idiot on my team in nearly every game that forces one of their teamates to switch just because there is no Tank or Healer or I just picked Hanzo

most of the people in the fanbase have a Fetish with Tracer & Widowmaker's Butt and do fanarts even before the game was even released and due to that people are making Porn Videos of the game.

16 Super Mario Bros.

To be honest, I think the only worst aspects of the Super Mario fan base are the ones that always start flame wars over certain characters in the franchise and those that constantly start fandom rivalry arguments with the Sonic fan base. I wouldn't say it's as toxic or divisive as other video game fan bases, but Super Mario isn't completely safe from it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I kinda disagree - Randomator

17 Portal

Portal isn’t completely safe but it is still playable and still one of the greatest series of all time - Ilikegames

18 Star Fox 64

Same problem as Super Smash Bros. Melee; the fans are overly obsessed on one game, but the second you say ANYTHING positive about the other games, they'll hunt you down and attempt to kill you.


Eastern Europe ruined this awesome game.

Americans tell me to go away.

Barnsey and Vilso are both admin and they are both idiots, they should be banned or taken their admin away from them is a online game part of the rise games this was ruined by Poles, Turks and Serbs and Georgians. The Turks do nooby stuff like spamming and that. Same with Poles even though they score a hat-trick of own goals. Georgians leave in 1v1s they are losing 1-0 and they will quit. Serbs are just Roblox noobs.

20 Um Jammer Lammy

Well, even the game itself thought that Lammy and Katy were hot, so there - xandermartin98

I keep on seeing this everywhere. I don't know what it is. - Pointingfingers

21 Minecraft: Story Mode

The physical copy is now a collector's item.

Crap Game. Crapper Fanbase.

22 Jailbreak (Roblox)

Jailbreak is a good game ruined by the noobs who think you are a hacker.

Who? That hacker emoji that shares the same name as this.

23 Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning

Oh god, I hope there aren't fans that are shipping playtime with it's a bully out there

24 Grand Theft Auto V

Sonic,Call of Duty,Minecraft,Smash Bros,Undertale,Bendy and FNAF fanbases are all old news,yet,have everyone forgotten about hacker who made rape mode in the multiplayer of this game few years ago?
Everyone's gonna ignore Ali-A level of clickbait garbage on youtube made by LispyJimmy,Sernandoe and NoughtPointFourLive? No one's gonna mention screaming youtubers? Annoying hackers and all children's that shouldn't even play this game,filling the multiplayer?
Let's be real, we can all ignore DA,but we just can't escape from clickbait garbage on youtube nor yelling childrens on multiplayer game(the same goes to cheaters).

25 Super Smash Bros. Melee

Fanbase is toxic

Fox shine earrape.

26 Pokemon Go!

It is now dead, guys come on play something else.

27 FIFA 18

I could buy a Playstation 4 Fifa right now at my local shop for 50 cents. I am not lying.

FIFA 18 is a awesome game but Ronaldo and 8 year old noobs ruined a bit of it but still a really good game!

28 Brofist Simulator: Sweden
29 Kirby Series
30 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Fanbase is just as bad as fortnite, and smash bros, You have fortnite fanbase that consists of Ninja (who also played H1Z1 and Pubg before) and cringey kids posting their wins and bragging and the pubg fans that think this game has no problems and is very original when it's just a 3rd person shooter but instead of having a story mode, it's a game where you kill other people, So original! - B1ueNew

31 League of Legends
32 Little Nightmares

People totally ruin the atmosphere this game sets.

33 Grand Chase

Ruined by Vyond (formally Go! Animate) "Bad users" - Discord1

34 Deltarune

The Undertale fanbase decided to infect this

35 Tattletail

Tattletail x Reader fanfics exist

36 A Hat in Time

Don't lewd the Hat Loli.

-Hat Kid.

37 Inazuma Eleven

Ruined by Yaoi fangirls

38 Star Fox Command
39 Fire Emblem
40 Mega Man

Rocket League game ruined by Turkish noobs and 1v1s.

42 Madden NFL 18

Ragers ruined the game we know and love.

43 Super Mario Maker

There a lot of hate comments online somebody swore at my friend's level.

44 Final Fantasy

Just the franchise in general. If you like a game in the series, people will call you a retard for enjoying it. If you don’t particularly care for a game, people will swarm you calling you a retard because you couldn’t understand it.

45 Powerpuff Girls Z the Game
46 Battlefield

I find it ironic that the Battlefield community bashes other FPS communities for being inferior to Battlefield when they themselves are tainting the picture of their own game franchise.

47 Granny

This game has been milked too much on YouTube - ElSherlock

48 Spyro the Dragon
49 Freedom Planet
50 Fran Bow
