Top 10 Worst Video Game Developers

htoutlaws2012

The Top Ten

1 Electronic Arts Electronic Arts Electronic Arts, Inc., also known as EA Games, is an American developer, marketer, publisher and distributor of video games headquartered in Redwood City, California.

They don't make bad games but they make you pay for everything.

They have great games, but they are commonly ruined by DRM, forced DLC, unfinished and broken products.

Example: SimCity: the game had a feature where you always had to be online to play it, even if you weren't playing online. The problem was, on launch day, the servers weren't ready, so literally nobody could play it.

They don't listen to gamers who are playing and notice bugs, failures etc. Patches don't work or don't fix the major problems. Patience of gamers are being tested to the max.

They destroy Criterion with their Burnout series with purpose due to Need For Speed... I will hate them forever.

Every good movie you watch some of the worst license games ever put that all together you have the rainbow company that is terrible - htoutlaws2012

3 Activision Activision Activision Publishing, Inc. is an American video game publisher. It was founded on October 1, 1979 and was the world's first independent developer and distributor of video games for gaming consoles.

Make a game and ship it out. If it's popular, make the game again and release it the following year. Then repeat the process until people are sick of it. That is only half of Activision in my opinion. It's bad enough that their flagship franchises are milked endlessly, but their decision making seals the deal for me.

They don't care about you, your problems with their games, and they don't care about even the quality of the games being made. All they want is a bottom line, and they know that people buy for the name alone. Outside of Call of Duty, their games range from mediocre to overmilked, all the way down to terrible. SpongeBob Heropants is a shining example of how not to make or publish a game, even for licensed gaming standards. They even ditched the Wii u and went with publishing for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which is bull. I have a Wii u, and if I haven't already vowed never to give these penguin suited bastards my money for ditching the Wii u, the only game I ...more

The genius behind the Call of Duty games was NOT due to Activision's money-grabbing bull! They rush the games they create and put no effort into creating what the fans want! MW2 was the last good game they published, and by the way, that was one of the best video games created! But when a game gets popular, they stop trying to make something great, and instead focus on making it look good so people will give them their money. Call of Duty Ghosts is a GREAT example of that! And MW3 was terrible, not as a Call of Duty game, but as Modern Warfare game. It was alright in comparison with every other Call of Duty game they created, but it was a downgrade of everything that made its predecessors great.

While Call of Duty ghosts had arguably one of the best, if not best story in any Call of Duty campaign, the multiplayer all but ruined the game for all the Call of Duty fans out there. Now, I'm a halo guy personally, but I love the Modern Warfare series! They did all those fans of ...more

Thanks to Activision's Greed.. They ruined destiny and most of their Call of Duty games.. Now Activision is turning almost 50% of every game they publish into DLC... And Destiny... Wow... After paying 90 bucks they want me to pay another 40 bucks for the next destiny dlc which would have already been in the game knowing that the House of wolves Dlc was premade since the start.. They just had to talk about the next DLC 1 month later.. Call of Duty will always be the same..

These guys rarely do good. They disrespect classic game characters (Spyro, Crash Bandicoot), They beg for your money. The only timr they ever do good is with rereleasing the original Crash, and Spyro trilogies. - hugh201

4 Zynga Zynga Zynga is an American provider of social video game services founded in July 2007 and headquartered in San Francisco, California, United States.

Seriously, are they even a gaming company? They steal games from other people, specially indie devs! Ugh, they are literally leaking with money, yet they need ideas from other people. Most of the time their games are usually littered with micro-transactions the literal bane of gaming. literally EA's little brother.

Worst ever gaming developer! They were the ones who introduced time-sync in their games and introduced trade between real cash and in-game currency as a way to earn money because they made their games slow as Hell.

I have been a fan of their games back in 2011, but their micro-transactions and game requesting system are the worst business practices on Earth!

Zynga makes terrible games, in which you have to pay to advance faster. - Flamer310

...Which game company ever decide to sue critics saying their game sucks? This one.

Easily the worst developers, by far. They're the Amy's Baking Company of gaming. - MKBeast

The company behind classics like temper tantrum and the slaughtering grounds

How is this not number 1? EA had at least good games like the good old NFS Most Wanted, LJN published a good spiderman game on snes, Activision published good games too, zynga sucks hard, but they don't attack valve and ubisoft is still a good company - LeetHaterz

6 Konami Konami Konami Holdings Corporation is a Japanese entertainment company that formed in 1969. Konami does a high amount of distributing products such as slot machines and arcade games, anime, video games, and trading / game cards. Konami also

I used to love this company, until there is nothing else to love about it. They don't have the slightest respect for their developers. Once they outlive their usefulness they get reassigned to be a part of security guards, cleanup crew, factory workers. Lately, they realized that gamers care about the people who create their favorite games. So, they decided not to give people credit when it's earned. They want to keep the gifted ones at Kojima's level enslaved rather than watch them grow and gain fame. It's one thing to play with your fans emotions by turning their favorite games into an embarrassment like what happened with Castlevania which ended up being an erratic violence pachinko game. But to turn on the people who helped the company succeed and make their lives a living hell is just plain evil.

Arguably the most controversial at the moment, Konami's franchises have slowly been diminishing, to the point where their are petitions to give the franchise rights to over companies. Also, with the apparent mistreatment of employees, some have to call into question how long the company will last.

Aside from throwing away a game with so much potential that came from the greatest horror franchise of all time, all there needs to be said is that firing Kojima is possibly the worst business decision made by a video game company. They love digging their own grave don't they?

Like most of the publishers on this list they care only about one thing and that is easy money and they don't give a damn what their own developers think just look at how they are treating the metal gear franchise after they fired Kojima...They just thought to themselves what was popular a couple of years ago and went oh yes! Zombies of course! let's just make a game which relies on the fox engine a ram a bit of metal gear into it to make metal gear fans buy it only to be disappointed by the lack of fun gameplay.

And don't get me started on how they treat their own developers and how they limit their potential so that they possibly don't outgrow them? Simply put they are self centered *ssholes who care nothing about the people under them or the people that actually buy their crap games nowadays.

7 Ubisoft Ubisoft Ubisoft Entertainment SA is a French multinational video game developer and publisher, headquartered in Rennes, France.

Ubisoft is without a doubt the worst company in the gaming business. They do all sorts of bull business practices like season passes, overpriced DLC, microtransactions, etc.. Also, remember Uplay? The online service that's trying its hardest to not compete with Steam and Origin. Ubisoft is also a master of milking franchises. They annually release Assassin's Creed games, and they all look the same. I'm willing to bet $500 dollars that Ubisoft will milk the Far Cry franchise as well. Far Cry 4 was basically Far Cry 3. Far Cry Primal also looks like another Far Cry 3. Remember when the Far Cry franchise had variety in every release? Far Cry 1, Far Cry 2, and Far Cry 3 looked and played completely different from each other. Well, now it has lost all its charm. Not only is Ubisoft doing bull business practices, they are also an incredibly lazy developer, as is evident with the annual releases that are basically the same thing different year. Ubisoft started those bull business practices ...more - TheMusicNerd

Have put out numerous games on Steam that just plain don't work (conflicts between Steam and Uplay) and they refuse to do anything about it. The one time I tried to do something about it I went to their forums and found thousands of other people with the same issue and the official response on the forums was always the same 'we can't help you on the forums, you need to open a support ticket.' So I did, and support responded about 2 weeks later saying that they could not help and for those issues I needed to post on the forums. I opened another support ticket explain that it was the forums that had told me I needed to go through them and they simply never responded. Upon reading up a little more I discovered that this was very normal for Ubisoft and at that point I decided to never buy their games again.

Makes a lot of buggy games that require a lot of computer power for graphics that aren't that impressive. Do I even have to tell about they making the same game over and over and just giving it different names? They're the most greedy company in this list, not to mention all its lies.

I played Watch Dogs. It was not fun. I hated missions which you have to attack group of cars.

How the heck is Sega...SEGA higher than this abomination of a company? This should be in the top ten! Their games are awful, they're pointless, and they're cash cows. They don't care about you, they care about money. Candy Crush has 12,000,000 different types of micro transactions and aggravating business practices. They also tried to trademark the words "Candy" and "Saga" instead of trademarking the combo "Candy Crush". Instead, they got AWAY with trademarking the word candy and every game on the App Store with that word got TAKEN DOWN. - DCfnaf

They are a ver arrogant company, trying to play big fish, little fish with indy companies that are making games or made games that have nothing to do or were made before candy crush.

Their games are pointless. There's nothing wrong with that. There's always time for a distraction. The problem is that they try to cash with the games by addicting people and then forcing them to buy. I had luck escaping...

My parents think I'm a moron for spending time and money on gaming, and yet they sit around yelling at Candy Crush and undoubtedly buying its horrible microtransactions. I'd call them hypocrits, but it's King's fault for trying to be EA for your phone!

Capcom used to be badass in the eighties and nineties, but they have fallen like Sega and Atari, but EVEN WORSE. Capcom is almost bankrupt ed now and there's a good reason, Capcom treats their fanbase badly, they didn't bring Mega man back even though almost all of their fans demanded for it, they have turned Resident Evil from a horror shooter to a mindless generic shooter, and they have been just milking Street Fighter for all it has, gee, I wonder why they are going bankrupt. - PinataonSugar

No megaman, No resident evil, No castlevania, Making Street Fighter bad, and that comes to my conclusion: CAPCOM has died. Rest in piece CAPCOM. In the 19's you were good, but you dumped some franchises. So now, you can go downhill.

Oh boy... Where do I begin?... We started from having games that could be counted as "masterpieces", now most of those franchises are either dead or being treated like dog crap! They really need to step in their A-game... A lot!

This company is coming back in someways with megaman 11, and the legacy collections - hugh201

Tiger is smart when it comes to selling, but all they make is outdated games, hell the games are digital watch technology. I still don't understand how they got to be a huge hit back at the 80's and 90's though, they were even outdated THEN. Somebody please explain to me how they got to be a huge hit and I will give you a back-rub, I guess.

There's one word that describes Tiger's games perfectly: Outdated. - lite64

Do they even count as games?

Yeah bad company.

Bought greatest game company ever, Rare and made Rare into garbage

They destroyed Rare, they'll have have Rare develope Viva Piñata for DS but nothing released from the N64 days released on Wii Virtual Console or sequels of past games from the days of 64 on Nintendo's. consoles.

You know the game rare replay well rare were going to put it on Wii u but since Microsoft own them they said make it exclusive to Xbox one I do not want it on any other console this is true this is why banjo kazzoie conkers bad fur day cannot be on virtual console Wii u or Wii and also why conker live and reloaded and banjo nuts and bolts is exclusive to Microsoft consoles screw Microsoft Nintendo should buy rare back

Most of Xbox exclusive characters aren’t memorable other than Master Chief and Arbiter. I respected Rare during N64 generation until Microsoft bought it. There hasn’t been any good games by Rare recently. Now they are slowly fading into obscurity. Fable series are mostly meh. I prefer Halo’s original trilogy than recent installments. I decided not to buy future Xbox consoles since the defective hardware that caused red circle of death on many Xbox 360s. I predict Xbox One will lose its competition with PlayStation and Nintendo Switch a couple decades later.

Its been since 1991 and I've owned every NHL and FIFA game since the start. The thing is they know this as well... If they made that perfect NHL game where the passing was great, the physics and everything else about the gameplay was top notch, They know it would potentially take away from fans on buying the next years version! NHL 17 is the worse gameplay I have seen in years for a very very VERY long time and they don't care!

Isn't this the same thing as EA? They do the same crap EA does, but worse. They make sports games every year with updated rosters, a new and useless feature, and better graphics. That's all, it's basically the same game every year, this won't be so bad if it isn't ALWAYS $60, are you kidding me?!? You get the same game, hell I don't even think they bothered to make a new feature sometimes and just REMOVED a feature. Why is this still alive? Why are people falling for this? Well, I guess it's because of the sport it is that they like to watch, they just deny that it is bad in their mind. Well, I'm not going to fall for it. - PinataonSugar

GOD DAMN YOU, EA SPORTS! You actually achieved making people start yammering on about FIFA, the worst franchise in existence.

28 Active Enterprises Active Enterprises Active Enterprises Ltd. is a defunct American video game developer headquartered in Miami, Florida which was active in the early 1990s.

Actually... here's the TRUE story. It wasn't the developers' fault.

The founder, Vince Perri, didn't know programming. So he hired a few guys to make Action 52. It took 3 months to make an NES game on average, but they had 52 to program! Vince pushed them too far, thus, the product was rushed. And Vince went too far with advertizing. So it's the founder's fault, not the programmers...

Look up "Action 52: History of the worst game ever! - From Concept to Console" on YouTube.

Reasons why Action 52 sucks:
-Major bugs and glitches
-Awful controls
-Terrible gameplay mechanics
-Poor level design
-Repetitive gameplay
-Tiny sprites
-Unbalanced difficulty
-Endless games
-bad graphics
-poor music
-No storyline

Just for those two games alone they should be let alone top 10. - htoutlaws2012

You people are idiots they made Sonic but they sort of going down hill my main complaint is now that they don't make consoles which is a shame

They are a stupid joke. They decided to start torturing their one of the most popular character (Sonic the Hedgehog) by creating Sonic '06, which was a glitchy mess of a story. They didn't stop, however; a few years later, they partnered with Big Red Button to brutally tear apart and murder Sonic with Sonic Boom. With the Sonic Franchise coming to an end, they are absolutely dumb for partnering with Big Red Button.

Although Sega doesn't deserve to be the top spot on this list, or even in the top 10, they really do deserve to be higher on this list. The games they make now are mediocre at best.

Sonic is the worst game ever made

I like Sony's games, but I can understand why certain people might not like the company, I guess.

Starts games, but doesn't them. Takes foolish peoples money then abandons their games. Allows big spenders to cheat without punishment. Bans players who ask for money back.

Ever since I've played custer's revenge I hate hate hate mystique they always make crappy games with porn

I can agree this company sucks... but it went out of business during the Game Crash of 1983. So we don't gotta deal with them, anymore.

Porn games enough said. - htoutlaws2012

I'd rather play Japanese hentai dating sims than play their porno games. good thing they went bankrupt. - jojofag

41 Rockstar Games Rockstar Games Rockstar Games, Inc. is a multinational video game developer and publisher best known for their Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead, Midnight Club, Max Payne, Bully, and Manhunt games.

Your support ticket is useless, don't even try to request a support ticket to this ass sucking company

I Don't Understand, They Made Grand Theft Auto, Max Payne, Red Dead Redemption And Bully, I Don't Know Why Are They Here - VideoGamefan5

Who put this on here? They Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne, and Manhunt. They should not be on here.

It wasn't Rockstar who wanted to ban modding or add micro-transactions, it's take-two's fault. - jojofag

A company that thought updating it to make it more realistic was the way to go, unfortunately, that its crumbled into dust since 2013. The community want a 2010 ROBLOX back. This is NOT what people of the golden age of ROBLOX wanted. They sold out to the millennial age. I understand the updates to keep up, but keep up with what? that have absolutely no competition and it was perfectly fine as it was considering users made their games, so why make it worse?

They don't have any competition in their video game genre, therefore they never, ever, EVER, listen to their community.

We should protest in front of their Headquarters that they removed tickets. Like If you are with me. - MinecraftHater

They used to be good until they decided to do what ever the hell they wanted to do with roblox. they're one of the reasons why Roblox has turned cancer. there is also no quality control with the games I have seen but that just be me and I haven't played the game since 2014. - jojofag

I was so excited for no mans sky, but what did I get? Horse crap and I fat kids barf, rotten cheese, big smokes big butt, which was used to make no mans sky.

Activision and Microsoft greed levels multiplied by 60. Sums it up.

The reason is "No Man's Sky". - kevin76517651

These are one of the worst companies out there, sure they make good games but how many of them actually work properly? I never got to complete Skyrim because of the game breaking bugs and they never seem to learn from their mistakes, they just keep making them over and over, it's like they don't care about their customers. Not to mention their ludicrously overpriced DLC packs and season passes. Seriously, $60 for a season pass is unforgivable.

I think the bugging on skyrim is an isolated incident, and besides, what game at launch doesn't have glitches? - MasonOcker

Brilliant developers

I need to give them the middle finger for buying id Software.

I think they are good and not bad at all.
