Top 10 Worst Video Game Developers


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Sony Sony

I have no idea why this is on here.. Probably an Xbox fanboy..

WHY?! Home to many great video game franchises and beloved characters like crash bandicoot and spyro the dragon!

This shouldn't even be on this list, they made many many fantastic games.

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.

43 Mystique Mystique

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

Love Terraria but Payday 2 is pay to win too much :/

Terraria is one of my favourite games of all time, so I disagree with this being on the list. - astroshark

Makes some bad games like H2S and Terarria - EliHbk

They decided it would be better to make DLC and milk us dry of our money than trying to give us a product that works.

They pretty much slapped Arkham fans in the face, and also cut all my relations from DC. - WonkeyDude98

WB ruined Arkham game series

Monetizing a tribute to a late cancer patient. Stay classy. - regularshowman

49 Blizzard Blizzard Blizzard was founded under the name Silicon & Synapse on February 8, 1991 by Michael Morhaime, Frank Pearce, and Allen Adham. 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 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.

This should be 1 for making overgarbage the biggest cancer of all time

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

53 Sachen Sachen

If you don't know this company, it's a Chinese company (Hong Kong I think) that made unlicensed NES games. Their most famous game: Little Red Hood.

Most of these unlicensed video game companies are utterly horrible. This company should be way higher. While this company utter crap, at least they weren't as bad as Yong Yong.

Although Sachen is bad, I personally think that Yong Yong is worse.

Unlicensed companies like this one usually suck.

54 Aeria Games Aeria Games

They don't care about their old games anymore... no more updates instead, the milk out money from whats remaining of that certain old game

Bless online should never have accepted aeria games offer and should be looking for a way better partner then this pay to win company!

Worst company in the universe

This one should have been in the top 10, greedier that this you only can find with EA and microsoft games.

55 Gameloft

A company that once used to make mobile ports of games like Rayman 2, Spiderman and 2, other games. Now they release mobile crap just to milk money out of there fans. And anyone who is stupid enough to spend a penny.

What can be said here? Ridiculous microtransactions, check. Mobile ripoffs of other games, check. Licensed games that are clones of their other games(with gameplay ripped off from other publishers), check. And of course the games that are supposedly free to play but require payment to proceed beyond a certain point, especially ones aimed at getting small children to run up big purchases on their parents accounts...

How is this not in the top 5? Gameloft makes pay-to-win games such as Modern combat 5!

Well what should I describe gameloft...oh well here it is 1) paywall, 2) paywall and 3) paywall, 4.9) worse than activision like seriously a lot of people critizises Call of Duty for having microtransaction but look at gameloft they literely forcing you to pay Money for everything.

56 Infinity Ward Infinity Ward Infinity Ward is an American video game developer. They developed the video game Call of Duty, along with five other installments in the Call of Duty series.

Seriously they made some of the good Call of Duty games with potential, such as Call of Duty Ghosts, terrible. The spawns in there games are ridiculous. The best games in Call of Duty were the Black Ops games and guess who didn't make it. Oh wait that's right Infinity Ward!

Call of Duty? Seriously? Why would you buy the games again and again if they are the same thing with different aspects? Makes no sense whatsoever

The creators of many Call of Duty games. The whole franchise is pathetic. - Turkeyasylum

Ruined Call of Duty - VideoGamefan5

57 Namco Bandai Namco Bandai

Disagree almost all the games are either good or are average but not terrible. - htoutlaws2012

I disagree they are actually pretty good and at least subtly reliable

The best games they made were a 3 Godzilla games. NES, Super Nintendo, and PS4


58 Bungie Bungie Bungie, Inc. is an American video game developer located in Bellevue, Washington, United States. The company was established in May 1991 as Bungie Software Products Corporation by University of Chicago undergraduate student Alex Seropian, who later brought in programmer Jason Jones after publishing more.

Destiny is the worst game. First, the game feels kind of rushing out to get money. Characters are not shock when shot, maps are limited and repeated. Different weapons in same kind has no appearance differences. The expansion even worst that it change nothing but shorten the signature skills and call it new game mode. Feeling that Bungie is not trying to do a good game but just capture some cash

I think that's the point, they don't want people cheating *Glitching*

Destiny is such a cash grab its even more embarrassing how destiny 2 is the same

They fell off with Destiny. Honest to God it should get worst game ever made. Over priced dlc that consist of a pay to win gimmick. RNG is such a joke. And the balance in the crucible is horrendous. There are literally hundreds of guns to use but the same 4 are constantly abused and people would rather use their spammable abilities overy their primaries. And on top of that, the Destiny 2 beta is already failing.

59 Nexon Nexon Nexon Co., Ltd. is a global developer and publisher of free-to-play (F2P) PC and mobile online games.

They ruined Aion, ruined Wildstar, the list goes on and on. This company doesn't create games, instead they "hold major share" in several companies and when their games reach certain threshold of monthly income they either kill it directly or change it to pay 2 win. Other than that they don't care about players, support is abysmal, etc. If every member of their board die tomorrow it will improve humanity as a race.

What do Halo 5 and all Nexon games have in common? Nothing but five-year-olds who constantly denigrate and bully all the others just because the latter have not gone pay-to-win. Is anything being done to fix this? No. Is anything being done to worsen this? Everything.

What do EA and Nexon have in common? Pay-to-win games all the way through. Is it a trend that really has to die? Yes. Is it a trend that is dying? Nope, it even harnesses even more power than ever before even though it already has 99% of all of the power in gaming.

What do Nexon and every free-to-play game company have in common? They say their games are not pay-to-win, but their pay-to-win is obvious and blatant.

What is another thing EA and Nexon have in common? They try to make e-sport titles, but wait, they are not legitimate e-sport titles because they are unplayable without going through the microtransactions and paying extra.

They created combat arms. that's all I have to say to explain how bad Nexon is.

Most cancerous South Korean game """""""""""developers"""""""""

60 Reto-Moto

This company does not listen to their community and do not balance anything. Instead, they add more and more and make things look fancy instead of fixing crucial things. They add what they want despite the communities likes and dislikes. They take your money but do not finish or make the game better, It has been in Beta for 2-3 years with minimal updates and it has actually gotten worse. Reto-Moto should be No. 1!

Professionals in wasting of good ideas and defrauding of their game community

Only solvable with a bullet to the head of every member.

There is only one word to describe this bunch of devs, trash, absolute and complete trash. they never listen to the community and the advice, they barely update the game and in general, never fix any problems.
