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.

Shouldn't even be a doubt in anyone's mind how this is the worst video game developer. Whose executives live off the money of addicted gamers and see them nothing more than walking wallets.

2 LJN LJN LJN Toys, Limited was an American toy company and video game publisher in operation from 1970 to 1995. It manufactured toy lines and released battery operated water guns and video games based on licensed properties from movies, television shows, and celebrities.

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

I just voted for this because I had researched that Activision publishes games. Update: I did a little more research and found out it USED to develop games. - Sprightly - Sprightly

Stop getting angry at things that are your fault and blame it on someone else if you want to erase your wallet on virtual money then do it but don't complain when you can't pay you're bills because you spent all your money on v bucks aka wallet emptyers - SkyRimLegend21

They copy other game companies worst of all their games become more popular. - XxembermasterxX

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.

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.

Even though I was only born in 2004 and never really got to play any of the silent hill games, I was really mad when they cancelled silent hills. I feel bad for the 90s gamers out there..

They only make money from slot machines now in japan and the yearly pes games and whatever game they come up with - Dvafan2

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

It looks very scary - bobthehallwayman

The name is a lie. - MrCoolC

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.

12 Capcom Capcom Capcom Co., Ltd., or Capcom, is a Japanese developer and publisher of video games, known for creating multi-million-selling franchises such as Mega Man, Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Ace Attorney, and Monster Hunter, as well as highly successful games based on the Disney animated properties. ...read more.

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

They invented on disc dlc ruined street fighter marvel vs capcom resident evil before 7 ruined dmc ruined everything lets not say mega man 11 will be a on disc dlc microtransaction fest - Dvafan2

Many reasons. Here's what they've done to their series:
They abandoned Mega Man.
They've ruined the Resident Evil series. Heck, even the guy who was behind the development said that 6 sucked.
They have thrown away Castlevania.
They are ruining the Street Fighter games with V by not adding an Arcade mode and a Vs mode. It was designed for their online 'Capcom Cup'.
Lastly, they have trashed the Devil May Cry games with an uneccessary reboot, which sucked horribly.

They invented a new form of 'DLC', which actually stands for 'Disk Locked Content', meaning you had to pay for dlc items that were already in the game.

There's more reasons why, but I think that this should cover on why Capcom is really going downhill, and fast.

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

13 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

They are the reason I'm broke because of for honor steel but I don't mind they wish for money they can take mine - SkyRimLegend21

35 Gumi, Inc

This company took an amazing game by Alim and corrupted it with their greed. Game companies need to make money but gumi is disgusting with how they handle their playerbase. They never listen to them, hand out bans for no reason, can never accept that they are wrong or made a mistake.

I have a friend who works for gumi and he told me about how toxic the environment is there and how greedy upper management is because they employees get really low wages.

Their website was hacked over a year ago and they still haven't fixed the website.

Majority of the players only play to support their guilds which is like their little families and severely hate gumi and the game.

Brave Frontier is long dead. They decided to prolong the maturity stage of the product life cycle and missed out the opportunity of harvesting. Therefore lead to a horrible cash grabbing Limited Edition sequence of summons that has angered the player base.

Bruh straight ass. 'Emergency" maintenance breaks are pretty common and poor compensation usually ensues. Recent "glitch" (there's plenty of these in the game to be honest) allowed players to buy items without losing tokens they had earned through the game. Immense ban wave removed all legitimate and illegitimate items from players.

Even when a banned innocent player has appealed that his/her account is clean from any hacks, exploits, or any illegal changes, gumi will not admit its mistake in banning an innocent player.

44 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

I think this is the worst. Not because they made Action 52 and Cheetahmen II; but because the people in this company have little to no programming experience. In total; it's obvious why they failed.
