21 Disney Disney The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

The one industry Disney can't dominate.

In a way there was a point they made some very bad Disney/pixar games. - htoutlaws2012

Disney has made some good games...Epic Mickey, Cars: Race O Rama, Toy Story 3: The Video Game, Disney Infinity, Oh my! How have I forgotten Kingdom Hearts? - peaceswagtv

Disney was good, they made some great games. However they did make bad ones to. But Disney is not bad

Well the games were good for YTP. But they're still terrible games. A disgrace to Zelda.

The Cd-i games enough said - htoutlaws2012

HM... I wonder what's for dinner?
This company sucks because of those crappy Zelda games on the CD-i.

CDI games. enough said.

23 Supercell Supercell Supercell is a mobile game development company founded in June 2010 in Helsinki, Finland. The company's debut game was Gunshine.net.

Recent updates for clash of clans really sucks. Clash royale has lousy servers. But they sometimes do the right things like banning cheaters but might anger most players whose use cheats before

Lately it just seems like they're trying to punish you for playing. Like how dare you not spend $50 weekly.

Supercell only caters for the Visa Warriors. Rest does jot even get support not help when you need it. - Barkiestef1

The people that brought you garbage like Clash of Clans and Clash Royale - christangrant

Clash of clans, That's the reason why. - Fullwalking

24 Niantic Niantic

They can't do anything more than small crap updates. It not even a full game compared to what they advertised and the large amounts of money Nintendo put into them. They tease big announcements that only is 8 Pokemon added out of the whole gen 2!

They ban everybody

Wow they ruined Pokémon go - JMaster90x

Created a really good game with ingress and had instant hype with Pokemon go.
Problem is that niantic have proven to be awful communicators with their fan base which was partly to blame for the rapid and severe decline of Pokémon go.
In the case of Pokemon go, updates have been steady but far too minor to keep the majority of the player base interested. Servers were unstable, tracking was turned off within weeks of launch and trading and battling with friends are two key features that were promised but have yet to materialise.
That and niantic's ruthless attempts to close down third party tracking apps instead of implementing their own has caused nothing but anger and frustration with a large section of Pokemon go's fan base.

25 EA Sports EA Sports

NHL 17 - AWF UL! w orse then 5 year olds house league hockey, FIFA 17 - very sloppy and totally reminds me of NHL 17... the A.i ruins both games, MADDEN 17 - also garbage game play! The problem I have with EA is when you prove to (EA) in the forms the major problems with the games and show them video evidence they just block you! There is NO reason EA shouldn't have great games! 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! There's been a couple of updates and all they did was update HUT (for their cash grab), celebrations and uniforms and leave the major issues that every one complains about the most alo ...more

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.

EA Sports is a spin-off company of EA. It's literally the same thing as EA. It tries to grab your wallet but the difference is that they make sports games.

The company was founded in 2010 replacing WB Games Chicago and Midway Games, which purchased assets in 2009 that were formerly owned by Midway Games Chicago after Midway filed for bankruptcy.

What are they here for?! They've revived Mortal Kombat! What more could you ask for? - MKBeast

They're not bad at all, they brought back Mortal Kombat. Shouldn't be in this list.

Sooo, why is this company here? They made some decent Mortal Kombat games for the 360 and PS4. What's the deuce?

27 Philips Electronics Philips Electronics

Thet ruin over and over again, for destroying Nintendo, remeber these awful Zelda CDI games, now they're going to kill the Wii you

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.

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

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

29 Ocean Software Ocean Software Ocean Software Ltd, commonly referred to as Ocean, was a British software development company, that became one of the biggest European video game developers/publishers of the 1980s and 1990s.

This company's fine. They made perfect arcade ports for computers.

Should be number 1. I will agree with Filmnstuff. He reviews his negative reviews of ocean games. They all suck, except for Total Recall for the Amiga with Darkman.

Waterworld,the worst game on the Virtual Boy

BAD THEY GAMES MADE

During its early years, Rare was backed by an unlimited budget from Nintendo, primarily concentrated on Nintendo Entertainment ...read more.

We used to love Rare and we even let Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts slide but until they went on to make Kinect Sports, they were officially dead.

Microsoft ruined this company. Rare used to make some good games, but Microsoft bought their company and created absolute trash to put all of their fame they worked hard for into a waste.

Probably of the recent Rare games but back then nobody would say it. - htoutlaws2012

Kinect Sports is not that bad.

31 2K Games 2K Games 2K Games, Inc. is an American global developer, marketer, distributor and publisher of video games, like Borderlands, Civilization V, The Darkness, NBA 2K and more recently, WWE 2K.

2k have made so many good games and bad games also but more good Borderlands bioshock and more

Stick to 2K sports

Not for the NBA games but the WWE games recently with them are the same every year their turning into EA it seems like. - htoutlaws2012

2K Games is not Japanese! It's American! I hate this logo! Nintendo wants 2K Games back! BioShock sucks! Borderlands suck! And that furry JRPG game Bouken no Nyaki sucks! - Neinwott

32 Rovio Entertainment Rovio Entertainment Rovio Entertainment Ltd., previously known as Relude and Rovio Mobile, is a Finnish developer, publisher, distributor of video games and is an entertainment company headquartered in Espoo, Finland.

Angry Birds has just become an abused cash cow... They arrogantly released the Angry Birds trilogy way overpriced on 3DS and didn't even bother to make it different. They hate gamers, apparently. Especially if they buy anything they make for a Nintendo console.

All I can say is they just been milking Angry Birds and refused to make a new series that can become a big hit. I didn't even like Angry Birds, how the hell is there going to be a Angry Birds movie. - PinataonSugar

Angry birds was great until they added coins to some of the games. Now you have to pay coins for the levels, and you can't even really earn the coins, you have to BUY THEM!

Angry Birds is a terrible game and there are TRILLIONS of versions of that stupid pointless cash grabbing game. - MinecraftHater

33 Roblox Corp. Roblox Corp.

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 support oders

34 Peta Games Peta Games

Peta being peta tried to rip off meat boy by saying that the titular mascot of team meat was made of pig guts. But team meat fought back in a clever way. Peta made super tofu boy to fight it, but if you type "petaphile" on the character select, you can play as tofu boy himself! But he SUCKS. He has troubles even making it past the first level. Peta, just stop making games and stop killing animals but say that you keep them safe. What a bunch of dumb hypocrites. - astroshark

So, the infamous terrorist cult has invaded the gaming industry? - thearkis

The only thing they're really good at is euthanasia.

Tanooki Kills Mario, Stupid Tofu Boy, Pokemon Black & Blue, Kitten Squad... the big bad weasel of animal rights is LJN's propaganda games division!

Come on now they made mortal kombat and the burnout series

Well, they did make Mortal Kombat and Burnout, but they also made some bad games too.

How they made #2 I have no idea. Did 4chan decide to raid this list or something?

Are you kidding me? they made Shadow Man for the n64 and RE-volt,those were awesome games,and ports for mortal kombat and Burnout,you can't be serious,Bubsy was made by Acoolade,not Acclaim! - MikeWayne

They primarily made ports of other games for other studios until 1993, when they made Rock N Roll Racing and The Lost Vikings . In 1994, They became Chaos Studios, Then Blizzard ...read more.

Literally everything they work on gets expensive DLC somewhere along the line, and even their special anniversary or holiday events are just used as opportunities to sell even more needless items. I don't think I've ever known them to do a giveaway of free special event items - one of the few companies that's so greedy they wouldn't even consider it

They're such a big company now that they don't care about their players opinions and have basically made their biggest game a Facebook game.

They don't make bad games. But they don't really push the envelope either. Hands down some of the best in game cinematics in gaming history.

I never have, I probably never will, take this group of people seriously. Yes they have some cool things going for halo, but mostly they've managed to dampen my love for this series that was a huge part of my life since I was little.

Halo is good, but I pre ordered halo master chief collection, and multiplayer doesn't work for anyone who pre ordered It! REALLY ANGRY ABOUT IT!

They will ruin the Halo franchise. Can we have Bungie back, PLEASE!

343i Only cares about making money and squeezing every single penny out of their loyal consumer. They do not care about their product and have DESTROYED HALO.

It killed Halo

Where you can't save in the middle of class trials that are an hour long or even longer. Literally the worst saving mechanic ever in gaming history. Just watch the anime if you want to go through it. The anime is miles better than the games. - SelfDestruct

40 Fox Interactive Fox Interactive

It's weird how I'm finding this company on the list; they published Croc.

Almost every simpsons games they made except for a few are bad. - htoutlaws2012
