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 seems like a good idea for a online fallout, but it is executed poorly - EvilEyedWarHawk

Buggy game, high requirements and frequent disconnections. Personally the always online is just the tip of the iceberg of bad things in this game. Bethesda you messed up, you really messed up

Possibly the worst game that I’ve ever played. Don’t buy it. Save your money.

2 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

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

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

Metal Gear is screwed after this. They had a nice little series going, until a portal appeared for some reason to make it a trashy zombie survival game. what?

3 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!

Wait... is this a toy or a bad idea of a game add on more less? If so why is it #2 its not an actual game. - htoutlaws2012

It’s at #1, finally - MrCoolC

4 Battlefield V

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

Not accurate at all.

Oh boy the controversy putting women in WWII oh boy Battlefield can hopefully distance themselves from not getting too dislikes with this move. Yet again it is EA which nobody really love that much in fact another predictably terrible EA conference with both teasing, and just same old same old. - htoutlaws2012

"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.

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

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

8 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

Worst game ever

More like Detroit: Become Stupid

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

9 Bloodstained

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

10 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

T His game is awesome

Ea makes awful microtransaction filled garbage - ikerevievs

12 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

Lego KSI vs logan paul the game - B1ueNew

13 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

14 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.

Music is sooo *2 infinty so lator* boring

15 NBA 2K19

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

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⚰️💣

16 EA Sports UFC 3

Just a slightly updated version of UFC 2 - MrCoolC

More ea crap - ikerevievs

17 Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

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

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

Wait should be high at 2 behind trashy fortnite

The only way to get a lot of exp is to use the mediocre gyro, the bad joycons, or the paywall to catch pokemon. Trainers gives you little exp.

19 Call of Duty (2018)
20 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

Capcom will find a way to make it bad look at resident evil street fighter v and marvel vs capcom infinite - Dvafan2

21 Hunt Down the Freeman

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

22 The Crew 2

It’s really damn annoying and disappointing!

23 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

24 Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Pretty sure it will get good reviews - B1ueNew

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.

Shouldn't be here at all.

Whoever said that it would get high 80s or low 90s on metacritic well,
Smash 64:79
Smash Melee: 92
Smash Brawl: 93
Smash Wii U: 92
So it would make sense that ultimate would get like a 94, 95 or even 96.

25 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

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.

26 Ace Combat 7
27 God of War

You mean this? - Neinwott

It shouldn't had been on this list. People think its overrated.
It's the game of the year right now and pretty much one of the best if not the best game of the current generation, deal with it. - Johnalove


28 Vampyr

43 Secret of Mana HD

The original was (and still is) awesome. This remake does nothing new other than ugly 3D graphics and terrible voice acting. If you still have the original SNES version, keep it. - raidramon0

44 Extinction (2018)
45 Rules of Survival Rules of Survival

Worst online game ever. 85 percent cheaters, 15% fair player. Reporting sucks. Normal player get banned 1800 days. Cheaters get banned in 1 day. Banning system worst.

46 Resident Evil 7 Switch

You can only buy this for a month this is a scam and you need a streaming service too just to buy it - Dvafan2

47 A Hat in Time

2017 game. - Extractinator04

48 Command & Conquer: Rivals

So this is what's become of Command & Conquer. How sad. - Zach808

49 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

50 New Gundam Breaker

A game with unlimited lagging

Never heard of it - B1ueNew
