Top Ten Worst Video Games of 2016

The Top Ten Worst Video Games of 2016

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!

This Game Is Full Of Broken Promises, It's Not Even Worth Trying It, I Was Like, "What Is This? ", This Game Came Like Out Of Nowhere, This Game is Such A Huge Lie!, One Man's Lie, Which Is Why I Give It A 2/5 - VideoGamefan5

2 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

While all the video game review sites are trying to put a positive light on both the sales and quality of this game, there's a reason why Activision's stocks have gone down over 20% since the game's launch.

This game was simply a disaster; the very epitome of all the things gamers DID NOT want from the next installment of the (in)famous Call of Duty franchise;

Firstly, there is a fairly lackluster campaign which reminds me far too much of HALO.

Secondly, there's the infamous copy+paste multiplayer with the horrible addition of the double-jump.

Thirdly, this game included a horrendous pay-to-win system in which players can only achieve more powerful weapons by BUYING THEM with REAL MONEY!

Finally, Activision made it so that the only way to get the Modern Warfare remaster we've been waiting for all these years was to pre-order this garbage game.

In addition, the reaction of the major video game sites is a prime reason as to why we should not ...more

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

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

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

3 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

Thank god mega man 11 is out now. This game made me cry like an anime fan on prom night.

I also hated the trailer it offended anime fans - ikerevievs

4 Street Fighter V

Nobody asked for a 5th game. I mean sure you can make miscellaneous or updated ones. But the 4th should’ve conclude the franchise. So no, not gonna see it.

The Street Fighter series was made before Mortal Kombat, so MK is an adult version of Street Fighter - Mcgillacuddy

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

5 Pokemon Go

A kid who sang "I play Pkm go" is a ugly trash guy like Garbage pail kids

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

This game and the deaths along with it is the reason I sold Pokémon Black 1 for the DS.

6 Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Samus's 30th birthday was celebrated very grim with this and the cancellation of an actual good Metroid title (*cough* ANOTHER METROID 2 REMAKE *cough*

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

7 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 should be number 1

8 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

9 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.

10 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

11/10 ign

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.

As a big fan of the RCT series. This is the biggest slap in the face to the fans. More of a slap than RCTMobile. Such a terrible game.

Thank god for Planet Coaster and Parkitect. - cjWriter1997

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

12 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!

13 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.

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

14 Halo Wars 2

Microsoft suck

It was kinda meh, but very unfriendly to beginners. - MKBeast

15 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!

16 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

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

Wait, so you're upset that Game Freak changed one of the things that people complained about being the same over and over again, to try to make things different? If that ain't hypocrisy than I don't know what is - cjWriter1997

17 Lego Marvel's Avengers

This game is awesome

18 Rolling Sky

Rolling Start

What is this? - VideoGamefan5

19 Destiny: Rise of Iron

Activision Is Taking Your Wallet - VideoGamefan5

I'm mixed on this. It's fun at times, but isn't worth $30. - MKBeast

20 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

21 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

22 Star Fox Zero

Why would I play a watered down version of 64 when I play 64 in my Nintendo 64?

One Of The LAMEST And Overrated Games Of 2016, The Other Star Fox Games Are MILES Better Than This Mouth Fart, Star Fox Zero sucks, The Story Is Junk, The Multiplayer Sucks, And The Controls Are Just As Bad As Watching Norm Of The North, I'm Done With Star Fox, If Nintendo Pulls A Star Fox Game For The Switch, Out Of Nowhere, I'm Definitely Extremely Ain't Getting It Anytime Soon, You Did For Me, Star Fox Zero - VideoGamefan5

It SUCKED allright! This was a game we thought was going to be epic! But it turned out to be a disappointment for the Star Fox series. This was NOT the sequel we waited 10 years for.

This game would've been alright if it wasn't for the Gamepad functionality that it forces you to use. Nintendo needs to learn that not every gimmick works. - MKBeast

23 Final Fantasy XV

I don't see why this was on there it is definitely the best ff since 12

24 Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Do We Really Need Another Olympics Game? , No, Not Really Unless You're Actually Going To Bring Something New To The Table - VideoGamefan5

The Wii U version is by far inferior to the 3DS version of London 2012. Want a proof? Here you go:
- Newcomers are restricted to only one event.
- Less events than it's predecessors.
- Lack of dream events.
- No online. (which I don't care)

The only thing going for it are maybe the graphics and the music.

You can still buy this game if you REALLY want but I rather recommend you to not buy this garbage and give SEGA the middle finger, until they learn of their faults. you're saying SEGA is the person to blame here and Nintendo is allowed to get a free pass because it's Nintendo? Both are at fault here. - DCfnaf

25 Just Dance 2017

Will this game ever just go back to the place it lives in called HELL?

I wish this up would just die already - ikerevievs

This game needs to die...

26 Horizon Zero Dawn

2017 retarded mate

27 Destiny the Collection
28 Paper Mario: Color Splash

This game is alright! - DCfnaf

Splashed in dissapointment

Is a gay game

SURPRISE - JG love this game!
DISAPPOINTMENT - Taco-Man hates this game! - Neinwott

29 Pokemon Sun

NO IT DOESN'T, STUPID. Pokemon is awesome! - Neinwott

Pokemon Suck

30 Finding Dory: Keep Swimming

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

31 Disney Magic Kingdoms

Disney magic weed

32 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

33 Mafia III

Wow, just wow - VideoGamefan5

34 Quantum Break

What A Stupid Attempt To Rip Off Infamous, This Game Is Mostly Just Cutscenes, And That's It, What a Fail, Microsoft, 2.9/5 - VideoGamefan5

A total shame. If the T.V. show wasn't forced in, along with stupid product placements, maybe it would've been a better game. - MKBeast

35 Skylanders Imaginators

Activision make money

Endless milking

This series needs to die!

This game does not suck! Sure, maybe a few tweeks, but I wouldn't say its bad...

37 Miitopia


38 For Honor

What? Ike, do you think my retarded mate? This game isn't even out yet, and ubisoft maybe delays this one to 2017

What's bad about this game? - RalphBob

This isn't even out yet. - MKBeast

It's not even out yet…..

39 Yooka-Laylee
40 Overwatch

Game is basically Team Fortress 3(We know how great Team Fortress 2 was) and is pretty rad. But, like a lot of games, The fanbase is killing it and is so cancerous. Not many people may know it, but it's terrible. Almost every single Overwatch animation is porn. Enough Said.

If Overwatch is online multiplayer only, then why is it not free to play, like Team Fortress 2? This makes Blizzard seem like they were making a bad attempt at a cash grab with this game! - SelfDestruct

Overwatch isn't bad. Overrated, yeah. Bad, no. There is fun to be had with your friends. - MKBeast

I hate this game so much. Should be number 2 behind Infinite Welfare. - B1ueNew

41 FNaF World

This game was a mess. Scott was nice enough to take it down, fix it, and put it back up for free. Good job, Scott. - DCfnaf

If Scott wasn't the caring developer he is, it would've been left a complete mess. - MKBeast

42 Forza Horizon 3

It's not even out you idiot.

I like this game

Worst game ever

The Jaguar D-Type in this game is painfully broken as such an old car can surpass 300MPH with upgrades!
Also, too much water. - SelfDestruct

43 South Park: The Fractured But Whole

That's not even out yet.

44 Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

It's On Here Because Retards Investigated This Site, 5/5 - VideoGamefan5

What moron put this on the List? - VideoGamefan5

Worst game ever hehe

WHO PUT THIS HERE?! This game is a GOTY contender. - MKBeast

45 XCOM 2
46 Ark: Survival Evolved
47 Arctic Dash: Norm of the North

It Has TERRIBLE Graphics, And I Hate Runner Games Anyways, 1.1/5 - VideoGamefan5

Wait, there's actualy a norm of the north game?


48 Sniper Elite 4
49 Miitomo

Why did Nintendo go so low by making phone games - ikerevievs

Nintendo like money

50 NASCAR Heat Evolution

It's gonna suck. The graphics aren't even acceptable for last gen! And the gameplay, the AI looks too easy. This is gonna suck horribly.

This is not even out, I'm hoping it will be good.

1 more day until we see the bad reviews. I predict:

IGN: 3.0 (Awful)
Gamespot: 5.0 (Mediocre)
Metacritic: 42 (Generally Unfavorable Reviews)
Gameinformer: 4
Official Playstation Magazine: 3

The odds that my predictions are correct are 80%. I'm not pre-ordering it because I know it will be an absolute failure. DMR, You failed us. You promised us a good game, and this is what you gave us?
