Worst Games of 2018


The Top Ten

1 Fallout 76 Fallout 76

It's the No Man's Sky of 2018. It was so hyped up by Bethesda and fans of the Fallout series but it turned out pretty much like Mass Effect Andromeda; it's an incredibly disappointing release for a great series. I honestly never would've thought that Bethesda would end up stooping this low. They hyped it up so much saying how the game play would have more "freedom", selling merchandise, heavily marketing the game, and even selling a $200 collector's edition of the game, and all for what? For an unfinished and falsely advertised product with little to absolutely NO effort put into it? Hopefully Bethesda can eventually pull themselves out of this one with the next Elder Scrolls release, because if they mess that up then they are in the hole for sure. - Mcgillacuddy

It could have been a good game but sadly it's not. There is a pitiful story line that doesn't draw you in and I haven't seen 1 comment anywhere that says otherwise. The freedom and cool things you could do (when it doesn't kick you out or freeze your x-box one X console) doesn't make up for the bad that you get from this game. For a great example remember when you were being spawn killed in Call of Duty? That rage and frustration you feel. Well it is like that but can come at any time and will keep coming no matter how many times you quit and try and find a new server. The 2 newest updates somehow made it worse and kicks me and freezes it more often. If the game came out with no glitches at all and ran perfectly smooth the story would still suck and there is no real intro or direction besides, Follow the footsteps of a lady you never met or heard of and don't care about.

Bethesda ruined a great franchise by just this game. Fallout 76 was just a mediocre cash grab developed by them 'cause they knew that with the name Fallout it would make good money, but no they were wrong. Fallout 76 is a disgrace to a otherwise a great franchise which was renowned for its storyline, gameplay among many others. Fallout 76 ruined it all and Bethesda should stop making more copies of this game and should focus on making better games which are worth our precious time and money, instead of these worthless, frustrating and obscene "video games". This one doesn't deserve the title of the renowned and respected Fallout. And it should be destroyed in a fallout/nuclear war. - TriggerTrashKid

Want a real game? Play Red Dead Redemption 2, that game is a million times better than this online only crap. Bethesda, if you make Fallout 5, do NOT make it online only - codgtamk34

2 Nintendo Labo

Would you rather

Play a free shooter game with you and your friends with good graphics and fun smooth gameplay


Pay 70$ for a cardboard game that is basically just a educational children's app but with cardboard that your parents will probably throw away 1 week later - B1ueNew

This is the worst of everything here. Everything else here is an actual GAME that you can PLAY. This is just a scam. 70 dollars for a CARDBOARD BOX? I have boxes lying around the house already! You know how much I paid for them? Nothing, I paid for what was inside. Vote the scam to first!

Nintendo labo is like 300$ wasted on cardboard, it really sucks I mean you can literary find the instructions on the internet and enough cardboard at home depot for like 20$!

Buy Red Dead instead of this, and if you play on a Switch, get a BOTW or Splatoon 2. - TriggerTrashKid

3 Metal Gear Survive

Some of the things wrong with Metal Gear Survive include the following:

1. The inclusion of stamina and water intake as affecting the player character's abilities.
2. The inability to drink clean water unless a SPECIFIC POT (the water container) has been found!
And here I was thinking that maybe Konami would own up to themselves after their dispute with Kojima and his firing, but this is one of the results that proved how much Konami hated Kojima after all. - SelfDestruct

Fortnite can't be worse than this... - B1ueNew

Not surprised in the slightest that Konami screwed up this game. But I must admit...I didn't think it would be this bad.

I honestly loved survive no kidding it was one of the most fun games I played all year.

4 Battlefield V

This game is insulting. It sucks! Dice, please don't add signal player in your games.

Two Words:-
Troll Item. - TriggerTrashKid

Not accurate at all.

"weehhh! my *historically accurate* video game has WOMAN IN IT! "
i'm sure if they put any other race in this game it would be considered 'inaccurate' due to the rights (or lack thereof) they had in the military.

5 FIFA 19

Fifa: play football
Next fifa: play football
No changes
Repeat 91991919191818182727292929292 times - iliekpiez

Even after 7 updates, basic functionalities are still broken. You just can't play the game without going insane.

Worst video game and sport of all time

God Of War 3 < God Of War 4
FIFA 10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18 = FIFA 19. - TriggerTrashKid

6 Detroit: Become Human

What is this game doing on here? I haven't played it yet but it looks quite awesome. Butthurt Xbox fanboy put it on here because Playstation actually got exclusives. - B1ueNew

This proves that PlayStation exclusive aren't always bad.
Also, we should get it off this list. - TriggerTrashKid

I'm a PlayStation gamer and Fortnite hater and I also hate this game - codgtamk34

I haven't played this game yet so I can't really say how good or bad it is, but I'm really worried when fortnite is lower than this game, because fortnite sucks. - MUSHROOM

7 Sea of Thieves

Look I know fortnite is overrated, but trust me this is just assassin's creed but in first person with the water that the wind waker on gamecube looks better - B1ueNew

Hard to decide between this and metal survive, but I'm gonna have to pick SOT for overall boringness

Early access. Rare, you can't fool the game community! Worse of 2018!

best game

8 State of Decay 2

I've seen some gameplay. And holy crap. This does look like an unfinished piece of crap. - B1ueNew

Unfinished, money-making, cash-grab. - TriggerTrashKid

9 Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn

Why does this game even exist. - B1ueNew

10 Just Dance 2019

Hopefully this cancer dies - ikerevievs

The title is dumb, Just Dance?
Buy other great games instead of same garbage as last year. - TriggerTrashKid

On the Wii!

The Contenders

11 The Culling 2
12 NBA 2K19

I like basketball, But why play a game when you can play in real life? - B1ueNew

I don't get why people would make a game about basketball when you can go outside and play it in reality.

I just took a look at the User reviews on Metacritic, and just like I feared, this is yet another money-grubbing pay to win hell from EA. - Mcgillacuddy

If they put curry on the cover like 2k18 they woulda sold billions 2k here lies ya tombstone⚰️💣

13 Bloodstained

This game is delayed like a million times - Dvafan2

Hey ikereviews, "Shovel Knight", "A Hat in Time", "Hyper Light Drifter", "Divinity: Original Sin 2", and "Thimbleweed Park" beg to differ.

After the dissapointment that is mighty no
.9 I don't trust kickstarter games anymore - ikerevievs

14 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

People actually think this and battlefield 5 will kill fortnite lol, so many things wrong with that first
1. People will stick with fortnite because I don't know it's FREE, not everyone has 60 dollars to buy a new game, unless you have rich parents because let's be honest the only people extremely hyped around this bf5 and fortnite are like 11 year olds
2. Call of duty games don't last that long now, no one played ghosts for it's crappy lag and maps, who actually cared about advanced warfare, and infinite warfare only people cared about it for the first few weeks it came out because people knew it was horrible, ww2 lasted pretty decent, Call of Duty black ops 3 is the only Call of Duty game on ps4/xbox that lasted a decent amount of time - B1ueNew

I just watched the trailer and there's NO CAMPAIGN. Multiplayer is BO3 without fly packs. - Marine_Soldier

NaH, This shouldn't be here. This game is actually decent. - B1ueNew

It isn't bad, should I say. - TriggerTrashKid

Last year:- Madden NFL.
This Year:- Madden NFL.
2099:- Madden NFL.
I hate this trend. - TriggerTrashKid

Ea makes awful microtransaction filled garbage - ikerevievs

16 The Crew 2

Worst car game of 2018. Forza Horizon 4 is way better. - TriggerTrashKid

It’s really damn annoying and disappointing!


17 Lego DC Super-Villains

I love Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, The LEGO Batman Original Video Game, adore Lego Indiana Jones and want to come out on the PS4, love LEGO City Undercover, and like Lego Marvel Superheroes. I even enjoyed LEGO Jurassic World and LEGO Hobbit. However, these DC games I am starting to heavily dislike. LEGO Batman 3 was a disappointment, and LEGO Batman 2 was OK. However, at this point, the LEGO Games have gone stale and are pretty much the same thing sadly today. - iliekpiez

What is next lego fortnite, lego jake paul game? - B1ueNew

Get those inspirational and creative LEGO blocks instead of this. - TriggerTrashKid

This game sucks. - iliekpiez

18 Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning

People can't even realize that this game is SUPPOSED to be bad. - 445956

This game is so overrated! It's jut a crappy horror game with crappy graphics? How did it get so popular? Is it because of the horrible graphics? Is it because of the horrible animations? Why is it so overrated? Mario and Quest For Glory are waay better (not meant to be rude) - darthvadern

Crappy garbage. Likers back off.

Baldi is bald, and BAD. - TriggerTrashKid

19 Kirby: Battle Royale

I mean the original 3ds version is bad but I don't think the new one is better it's just kirby triple deluxe but with a twist, crappy 5 minute battle royale I mean I don't think it's even online!, what is a battle royale with no online? - B1ueNew

Mediocre game, Not worth 40 dollars at ALL, Just get triple deluxe instead - B1ueNew

This game is the worst rip off ever

This is the only REALLY bad Kirby game. Use your money to get Planet Robobot instead. - Drawbox

20 Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee

21 EA Sports UFC 3

Just a slightly updated version of UFC 2 - MrCoolC

EA SHUT IT OFF! - TriggerTrashKid

More ea crap - ikerevievs

22 Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

The damage has already been done crapcom the greeediest of the greedy - ikerevievs

23 Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Very disappointed about that game. Overrated just like Red Dead Redemption 2. Not impressed by the "everyone is here". I really hated most of the newcomers. Story Mode is a complete disappointment, the one of Brawl is much better. But the part I hate the most about the game is the Spirit Mode, a complete waste of developpment for this game. It's okay if peoples like it, but honestly, I'll go back to Melee, Brawl and Wii U instead.

Pretty sure it will get good reviews - B1ueNew

Shouldn't be here at all.

Unlike my other comments on praising it, I want to say its wayy tooo overrated. Doesn't deserve it. Buy Splatoon instead and if you have that, remember, Switch has many games worth it. - TriggerTrashKid

24 Hunt Down the Freeman

Everything about this game is bad, the writing, the voice acting, the gameplay, etc. Out of the worst games of this year this one shines out the most with 76 and Metal Gear Survive close behind.

Just crap

Why is this game not number 1, This is the worst game to release during 2018. Sure fortnite is overrated as hell but it does not give it the reason to be put on number 1 on the list becuase the game was fun before it blew up in popularity and at least it is a playable game with redeeming qualities. Hunt down the freeman on the otherhand is just not just bad, it's a broken game.

There are so many things wrong with this game such as:
- inconsistent art style (which is a mix match of diffrent textures that don't go well together as well as guns which do not feel like guns you would find in a half life game)
- broken game mechacanics (such as its parkour system)
- stolen assets (this game had stole assets from not only the gmod workshop but left 4 dead, Half life 2, black mesa and other games and places too)
- Inconsistent level design (the levels just feel like is mix-match of diffrent levels put together and some levles where stolen like some of the assets such as the ...more - jojofag

25 Kingdom Hearts 3

Just because it's delayed doesn't mean it's bad. Besides, this game looks pretty good, compared to the turds at the top. - Gehenna

This will probably be amazing.

Delayed - Dvafan2

26 Diablo Immortal

Activision, how dare you. This is a slap in the face to Diablo fans. When people wanted a new Diablo game, they didn't say they wanted an already existing mobile game just reskinned with Diablo assets. This is how franchises die. - Zach808

Is this even a game? - Gehenna

45 minute presentation at Blizzcon... What could it be? Diablo 4?! Yes! that's what fans want... Wait its not D4? Well... maybe a new addon for Diablo 3? No? Not even that? Alright then its just a new Diablo 3 season...? No. Even worse. Presenting Diablo Immortal - a cheap chinese looking phone game that probably will have microtransactions. Meanwhile at Blizzard: Yes! that's what the fans asked for after 6 years of Diablo 3.

27 The Quiet Man

Just watch Angry joe or Jim Sterlings gameplay on youtube...it sums it up pretty good...

28 Call of Duty (2018)
29 Mega Man 11

We barely know anything about the game. The most we got was a trailer back in December 2017. HOW CAN YOU DETERMINE A GAME'S QUALITY BY ONE TRAILER?! - Pikachu7586

I don't trust capcom either - ikerevievs

This was a good game. - Drawbox

I love this game. - iliekpiez

All the ads are fake. I played it and I was like.
IT RUINED ME! - TriggerTrashKid


I get it,Fortnite is overrated but it doesn't mean it should've been number 1.Not when this atrocity exists.The fake ads pop out on my phone ALL THE TIME.The gameplay is total garbage.-5/10 - Hellohi

This terrible game is terrible for many reasons. Not only did I was tricked by the already crappy ads, it was also fake. The gameplay was like playing Busby 3D, which is a gigantic failure. Seriously, I’d rather play Rules of Survival or even Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing than this trash. - AnLSUQB

34 Dark Souls Remastered

A pretty bare bones HD retexture of the original. Includes a couple of conveniences like using multiple consumables at a time, a new bonfire near a merchant NPC, and being able to switch covenants on at checkpoints.

However, for the major overhauls, there's something to negate the change almost immediately. More players and better connectivity for PvP and Co-Op, but the match making is based off level-adjustments from powerful items in your inventory you can get by random chance and might not even have currently in use, making it easily abusable for invaders and unfair to newcomers. The ability to use your estus flask even as an invader or summon, but now everyone can spam healing AND you can still carry mushrooms, divine blessings and humanity in stacks of 99 as alternative healing sources. Various bug fixes like dead-angling and ghost hits, but chain backstabs and teleport glitches still exist. Move swapping and item menu dublication patched, but perfect frame duplication and ...more - MarioHead

41 Dynasty Warriors 9

Worst Dynasty Warriors/Musou game ever. 'enough said. =|

42 A Hat in Time

2017 game. - Extractinator04

43 Yume Nikki: Dream Diary

I've had to start my review series due to how much of a disappointing trainwreck this game is. Terrible gameplay, from limited exploration that kills the point of Yume Nikki to nearly unplayable 3D platforming, which also gives this game no identity of its own. Top that off with bad character design, lazy level design, horror elements that insult the original, and a ton of glitches as well. No matter if it's a sequel, reboot, reimagining, etc. this game is terrible, and it will live forever in memory as one of the worst gaming experiences I've ever had. - nerffan8000

EA STOP IT! - TriggerTrashKid

50 Spider Man (Ps4)

I don't wanna live anymore. How could this game be this high. I know that actually every single game of 2018 deserves a spot here because even the best game has to get the last position on this list. The ending wasn't all that likable, but okay I guess and I am pretty sure some crying to his/her momma Xbox or Switch owner put this here. It is a great exclusive by the way. And Xbox is feeling sad it doesn't have this one? You don't deserve it. - TriggerTrashKid

Did some Xbox owner put this here - B1ueNew

Or just someone who hates Spiderman. But I doubt that anyone hates Spiderman. - AnLSUQB

My gosh this was a good game, But overrated as HELL, and the ending was so terrible I wanted sell this game again - B1ueNew
