62 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.

63 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.

64 Atari Atari Atari is a corporate and brand name owned by several entities since its inception in 1972, currently by Atari Interactive, a subsidiary of the French publisher Atari, SA.

The Atari today is awful! Remakes of classic games like: Alone in the Dark and Haunted House destroyed. Even after 30 years they haven't really pulled out of the hole that caused the '83 industry crash

With the release of Alone in the Dark: Illumination it's really hard not to see where Atari has come as a company nowadays, producing some of the worst games in each year since the early 2010's.

This one is a mix-bag yes the 2600 was a revolution but everything after it was not I mean the bad things were crash of 1983, E.T, Custer's Revenge, Pac-man, Atari Jaguar. - htoutlaws2012

Roller Coaster Tycoon World... >.<
I have no idea what supports the company still running today...

65 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.

Seriously how is this not on here? This is possibly THE WORST company to ever stain the world with its existence. They care nothing for their players and their customer support is worse then EA (I'm not even joking) they close your ticket instantly, don't even bother with you. Then they try and scam kids out of every penny they have. Even the employees are miserable. They refuse to do anything that would benefit a game.P.S. they tried to buy EA, and the sad part is that I would have cried because it would be worse, much worse.

This company doesn't suck at all

When they 1st started out they were unknown does tony hawk ring a bell. Then we skip to 2008 which was W.A.W which was a pretty good game, then 2 years later the 1st Blackops game comes and that was really good as well, but then a sequel comes another 2 years and it wasn't as good as the 1st and everything begins 2 fade as the made a unnecessary third game. - htoutlaws2012

67 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.

68 Wargaming Wargaming Wargaming Public Co Ltd is an international game developer and publisher headquartered in Nicosia, Cyprus.

The level of these guys do to make a quick buck at the expense of their players is only surpassed by how much more they would do if it wouldn't mean immediate suicide for their company.

Will ruin the gameplay by introducing pay to win vehicles and do nothing to change anything about them, after deeming them OP.

Ultra fun gameplay in WoT, as soon as you don't run on a derp tank while in a scout

Trash devs

69 Hi-Rez Studios Hi-Rez Studios

Why are these guys even here?
They released smite which is a good $30 games if you bought the gods pack, the rest are just cosmetic which doesn't even matter

Hi-Rez is notorious for neglecting their own games. But since I haven't actually played any of those smaller games I'll focus on Smite. Smite is not a bad game, in fact it's probably the best MOBA right now - if you can even get it to start, by some miracle of the gods. Even with Smite as their primary priority, the bugs keep coming and they don't stop coming. Every patch seems to create a dozen more. At least you do get responses for your support tickets - most (if not all) of them automated replies.

Overall, Hi-Rez is one of those corporations that are too ambitious. At this current stage, they've bitten off more than they can chew and they're choking to death on it.

I only play smite. And I really wonder how the game is up yet. Always has a lot of bugs after patches. The game is down at least once a week and sometimes more than that. They do give free in-game money (gems in smite) but for a good event you need to spend more than 40-50 euros at least to buy skins and extra stuff.
They have made chests which you randomly get something and you need to pay for it (If I want to play joker I will let you know, thank you.)
If there is a crash in the game and you have a quest, the game kicks you out, bans you and you don't get the quest as well.

After that. Paladins cannot be uninstalled from your pc for some reason.

This company has become very expensive and amateur while it used to be a good one. Too bad...

70 Cypronia

Known for making knock-offs of popular mobile phone games like -- Cake Ninja which is their attempt at Fruit Ninja and currently they have released Angry Bunnies, which has some of us cringing enough that it's another Angry Birds. Though we acknowledge 3DS has more than just one demographic but AG was way too overpriced.

They've improved a little since they released Color Zen however, Color Zen Kids is overpriced. Though serious it doesn't excuse the mediocre knock-offs.

I liked cube life, they are a very open company

Not really I mean heavy rain was good. The others aren't bad there okay. - htoutlaws2012

They can't program... I would guess their GAME DEV team is 95% artists and 5% Programmers who just started their game development programming... How hard is it to fix your Hit radiuses.

Delay of certain framchises to bring out Uncharted all the time. Yeah there was the odd The Last of Us recently, but Uncharted is just milked at this point - Soldierhero

76 Cryo Interactive Cryo Interactive Cryo Interactive Entertainment was a French video game development and publishing company founded in 1992, but existing unofficially since 1989 as a developer group under the name Cryo.

Infamous game developer who make terrible adventure games.

This French game developer are infamous for their horrible adventure games. some examples of games published by Cryo include Frank Herbert's Dune, Dreams to Reality, Hellboy: Dogs of the Night, Aliens: A Comic Book Adventure, Virus: Is it Aware, Asterix & Obelix Take on Ceasar and a boatload of Universal Pictures licensed games. They have made some good games such as the Atlantis series and a Woody Woodpecker 3D platformer for the PC and PlayStation 2, but most of Cryo's library is garbage. Stay away from their games at all costs.

If you find a game with their logo on, Stay away. This company makes nothing but garbage games such as Asterix & Obelix Take on Ceasar, Hellboy: Dogs of the Night and Frank Herbert’s Dune.

Greedy Developers much said.

Too early to tell. - htoutlaws2012

They are almost greedier that EA, almost.

First they added 100 bucks worth of DLC, now they added P2W microtransactions, although they told us, we would be crazy thinking that they would ever do that. The storm of the community is being ignored.

79 Koei Tecmo Koei Tecmo Koei Tecmo Holdings Co., Ltd., is a holding company created in 2009 by the merger of Japanese video game companies Koei and Tecmo.

Turning great games like samurai warriors into a T&N series. Also constant and expensive DLC...

...meant T&A.

They've ported tons of games PC but all of them are of the same **ty polish. Lackluster video options, horrible PC input support, terrible performance, to name a few.

Killed ninja guiden with NG3

announced that dead or alive 5 will be the only game at it's time to never use costumes and dresses as DLC's and they lied, the base game might cost you around $30 or $40 the DLC's as a whole will reach around $100.

Oh ha ha it's funny as hell mate so can u take this off?

Great company that isn't greedy

This joke isn't funny. - MKBeast

Nice joke but actually the witcher 1 and 2 were bad or pretty decent. Nevertheless, with the witcher 3 this company is now one of the best ones - Ale9991
