Top Ten Worst Video Games of 2016


The Top Ten

1 No Man's Sky 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!

2 Mighty No.9 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This Game, It's A Horrible Pile Of Junk, It's Not Even That Hard, The Graphics Look So Darn Outdated, The Game Feels "Childish" As A Whole, What A Mega-Fail To Atempt a Mega Man, 1.4/5 - VideoGamefan5

3 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare 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

Ok, I'll Be Completely Honest, It's Not that Good Of A Game, As It Tried To Have A Similar Concept To Ghosts, Where It Didn't feel Like The Whole Franchise, The Campaign Is Okay To Be Honest, It Feels Like A Sci-Fi Call Of Duty Game, Which Isn't What Call of Duty Was Made For, But AT LEAST It's Playable, So Yeah, 3.1/5 - VideoGamefan5

4 Street Fighter V 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

This is one of the worst games I played the content in the game is as low as splatoon or star wars battlefront
and wheres arcade mode - ikerevievs

5 Homefront: The Revolution 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.

6 Ghostbusters the Game Ghostbusters the Game

Its probably going to another movie bust anyways - ikerevievs

8 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

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

This may be beyond the meaning of "overhyped".
The game turned out quite bad. The poor design decisions are rather stupid, given that they could have went the easy route and made the mechanics similar to the real Pokémon games (with necessary adaptations). It really wouldn't be too hard to have made it a much better game by launch (as in better than it is currently). I don't think it matters if they add more Pokémon.
Personally I think that they should just ditch the game as they have it and remake it from the ground up, with good levelling mechanics, battling with nearby players (but with non-pathetic battles), and pokémon that don't stand in front of you staring at you waiting to be caught.

9 Rollercoaster Tycoon World 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.

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

10 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

Where Do I Start? , Everyone Raged At This In E3 Nintendo Conference 2015, And We Get This Pile Of Junk, A Game That A Lot Of People Hate So Yeah 1.9/5 - VideoGamefan5

The Contenders

11 FIFA 17

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

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.

All it is a horrible hitman clone - ikerevievs

14 Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice 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.

The prime example of a video game that exceeded our expectations.

15 Zootopia: The Crime Files

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

16 Finding Dory: Keep Swimming

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

17 Clash Royale

It has TERRIBLE balancing issues. - MKBeast

18 Persona 5 Persona 5

I still wonder why Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is number 1 worst game of 2016 in this list, when there are so many worse games that came out this year (*cough*Persona 5*cough). My friend imported a copy of *cough*Persona 5*cough* for PS4 from Japan and I gave it a try. It sucked! - SelfDestruct

19 Pokken Tournament 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

It is good neinwott, but the fights can go really quickly and the CPUs are very easy and will make you weak for online battles - Sanicball

20 Pokemon Moon 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

Ruined because of the "Island Challenge". I wanted Gyms, dammit!

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