Top Ten Worst Video Games of 2016


The Top Ten

1 No Man's Sky

This game is full of broken promises... - Moorefamval

Very boring game compared to other free roam games like Minecraft Witcher and Skyrim - ikerevievs

As its been said - This game is like a river that's a million miles wide but only an inch deep. Oh so wide...but alas so shallow!

Mighty No. 9 is still a more disappointing game than this. - PerfectImpulseX

2 Mighty No.9

This game is super bland. I feel so sorry for all the Megaman fans out there who were really waiting for this game. - Mcgillacuddy

This game is not what we wanted we wanted a game like the original mega man games not this piece of trash that people will forget in a month - ikerevievs

I also hated the trailer it offended anime fans - ikerevievs

This makes Mega Man X7 look like Mega Man X4! I doubt that Inti Creates (the developers of this game) would make a game like this...but then again they developed Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures and Power Rangers Samurai: The Game (2 licensed shovelware titles for the Nintendo 3DS). - PerfectImpulseX

3 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

The originality of this franchise is simply dying, and I've realized this ever since BO2 was released, yet so many people kept on buying this rehashed crap that barely even changes with each release. I'm not gonna go out of line and say that this was one of the worst games of the year, because it's actually not THAT bad, but I'm just satisfied that people finally, FINALLY opened their eyes and gave this series the hate it deserves. Stop buying from this cashgrab copy and paste series. Until they release a game that's not a DLC of the previous game, then Activision can suck it. - Mcgillacuddy

This could be the nuclear explosion that will kill off call of duty. The trailer is given huge criticism and is the 4th trailer with the most dislikes on YouTube. This game could kill off Treyarch - Gamecubesarecool193

Or it could exceed those expectations. I think this will be a good game. - SelfDestruct

Of course its Call of Duty it's the same thing like last year - ikerevievs

its silly

4 Street Fighter V

Yeah this game sucks hard. And it's STREET FIGHTER? Oh come on, guys you could've done better than this - Mcgillacuddy

This Game Sucked, It Was A Major Disappointment, I Mean Online Only? , What The Fridge Was Capcom Thinking? , It's Just Very Boring After A While, So Yeah 2.6/5 - VideoGamefan5

I think it's time we accept Street Fighter is Mortal Kombat except for kids

5 Pokemon Go

I've been playing pokemon since I was 7 and all I'm going to say is pokemon go is dead - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

So Darn Overrated, Why Does Everyone Like This So Much? , I Got A Bunch Of Thumbs Down When I Made The List Worst Mobile Games of 2016, Everyone Raged at Me for putting It On there, And This Game Just Doesn't Work, I Tried it A Billion Times Already And It Just Can't Work, so Yeah 2.8/5 - VideoGamefan5

The game itself is crap, and one of the worst pokemon games. I can't believe some people were saying that it's better than the normal games. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

It has absolutely none of the feel of the original Pokemon games.

I am glad I never played Pokemon Go in my life. You know that game is really dangerous when you are on a street and you did'nt know what you are going. It's also cancerous with that song on Youtube based on a game.

6 Ghostbusters the Game

The final boss is just literally going to a corner and keep shooting him until he is defeated. And guess the damage taken with this method. NONE! Yeah, the final boss is so broken he can't attack a corner! - SelfDestruct

Its probably going to another movie bust anyways - ikerevievs

The movie looks bad enough

This is offcailly the worst game ever released
lgn would be proud

7 Metroid Prime: Federation Force

The game looks good for a spinoff, but it definitely wasn't worth attempting to take down legitimately great and amazing main-series games over (cough, cough, ANOTHER METROID 2 REMAKE, cough) - xandermartin98

This game might be good on its own, but it doesn't deserve the Metroid title at all. Disregarding that though, what's the point of this list? None of these games are out yet. - GamerBoy

Why did they even bother calling this metroid prime? It should've been called "don't buy this game, it's bad" - Sanicball

Samus even tries to kill herself at the end

8 Homefront: The Revolution

Oh, Homefront, We Meet Again, I Can't Even Begin With How Much This Garbage Sucks, The Graphics Are Pretty Dull To Be Honest, But The Game Is Just An Unfinished Mess, Worst Game Of 2016, In My Opinion - VideoGamefan5

Completely changing the timeline from the first game was a really bad idea in my opinion

Sigh, this game is awful, big dissapointment, it's like a game from the 2000s, buy Call of Duty 2 or boyfriend Vietnam instead of this, an old fps is better

It sucks that we're in the generation where games like Uncharted 4, Doom, Bloodborne, MGS5, etc are being released and yet we still get like this. If you're gonna have your game look like a PS3 game, then release it for PS3! Not only does the framerate and graphics suck, but the gameplay is generic, the story is uninteresting, and the open world is so bland and boring. If you want a first person shooter with good gameplay and visuals, play something like Battlefield 1, Overwatch, hell play any of the Call of Duty games and you'll get a better experience.

9 FIFA 17

Who makes this list?

In my opinion, this is kind of like EA's version of Call of Duty, with the exception that they actually make minor changes to their game.

This game is awesome you are stupid you should play the journey in Fifa 17 it is awesome you have not lived yet if you had not played it!

I don't think you used your brain to right this list

10 Madden NFL 17

Ea + dollar + ign = 11/10

EA is taking your money. - DCfnaf

OH It's A FUN GAME BUT It's THE SAME AS LAST YEAR, SO 3/5! - VideoGamefan5

You guys are so stupid this game is so awesome!

The Contenders

11 Rollercoaster Tycoon World

RCT World is an unfinished, unpolished, and overall broken "sequel" fans have been waiting twelve years for. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on Planet Coaster instead.

All This, Is Rollercoaster tycoon 3D For the PC, So 1.7/5, - VideoGamefan5

Ugh, this game is a disaster. Should've never trusted Atari, a company that's gradually falling apart, with a game that fans have been asking years for. It's insanely glitchy, has tons of bugs, the coaster creator is impossible to use, the coaster point of view framerates are ass, the game lags out when 1k people are in your park... This game just has so many problems fans were screaming about that the developers never bothered to fix after the dozens of patches and updates. After 12 years, this is what they bring us. The funny thing is that I would've waited. I'm patient enough. I would've waited a few more years for them to polish the game, but no, they just had to rush it out because they want the quick buck.

RCT fans, don't buy this game. You want a good theme park simulator? Buy Planet Coaster and not this crap. Atari is dead to me. I don't want to see their ass again. - Mcgillacuddy

I have watch a video " RollerCoaster Tycoon World VS. Pl**** Coa****...Peeps on Coasters! ", the graphic of the RCTW looked like a cursed video...

Even I am a big fan of Roller coaster tycoon series, This game is unbearable due to those cringey animation, low quality graphics, and those broken physics and coaster creator, though there are few features that is slightly better than its competitor like its road editing and custom content.

Atari is similar to Michael Bay, ruining every childhood as much as they want...

12 Alekhine's Gun

A stealth game with a broken stealth mechanic, where you are only attacked when you strike a weird pose, only serves to worsen this game dramatically. - SelfDestruct

All it is a horrible hitman clone - ikerevievs

Best game ever

Unmitigated garbage. 0/10.

13 Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice

How can you judge this game? The first one was bad but you can't judge a game until it's out. And to be honest, I feel like the person that makes these lists only hates on these games for attention. - nintendofan126

Why are judging games that aren't out yet? - RalphBob

This list is stupid, how can you judge these games when they're not even out yet.

I can't wait for sonic mania and sonic forces!

14 Pokken Tournament

It was a good game, but one of the more less played games on the Wii U - ChiefMudkip

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ON THE LIST?! Pokken Torunament is one of the best fighting games of all time! - Neinwott

Alright, it was an okay game. But it was not the pokemon fighter we have been waiting years for. In my oppinion, it was a huge dissapointment. I like it, but it can really only entertain me for about half an hour before I get bored.

First of all where I come from this was released in 2015 and secondly WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL! This is easily the best Pokémon spin-off and one of the best Fighting games and that's saying a lot. Well whatever the reason people don't like it; people who do like this are cool.

15 Pokemon Moon

This game is not bad. People think it is bad because pokemon go ruined game freak.

Nintendo doesn't suck! Nintendo is life! Pokemon is one of the best games of all time! - Neinwott

Uh Best Game of the Series so far >:/ - ChiefMudkip

Pokemon sun is better, pokemon moon sucks. Left sided games are always better. if it was moon and sun, then moon would be better, but its sun and moon, so sun is better. - USGC

16 Zootopia: The Crime Files

Really Disney? You rip-off Criminal case and put Zootopia characters to lure people to buy it?

What The Heck Was The Point Of This Game? , It Was Pretty Boring For Sure - VideoGamefan5

17 Rolling Sky

Rolling Start

What is this? - VideoGamefan5

18 Finding Dory: Keep Swimming

Seriously, Just Like The Zootopia Crime Files Game, Just Another Boring App Off A Good Film - VideoGamefan5

19 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

Thanks for putting this game in a hostage for ransom situation, Activision! - PrinceOfFire

It was exciting to hear this game was getting remastered but turns out that it's nothing but microtransaction trash. This is what happens when you trust Crapivision. - Mcgillacuddy

20 Clash Royale

It has TERRIBLE balancing issues. - MKBeast

Wanna reach arena 12 fast? Pay money
Wanna get balanced gameplay? Spend money, but you'll not get
