Top 10 Worst Video Game Developers

61 Hi-Rez Studios Hi-Rez Studios

3rd Game in a row to be killed by this studio... Well played Low-Rez.

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.

62 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

Update now they made alone in the dark illumination and rct world witch both suck - ikerevievs

63 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

64 Dimps

What NO. They made a ton of great games. - Tayxd123

65 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

66 Quantic Dream Quantic Dream Quantic Dream SA is a French video game developer based in Paris, France, founded in 1997. The company also supplies motion capture services to the film and video game industries.

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

67 Riot Games Riot Games

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.

68 Mojang Mojang Mojang AB is a Swedish video game developer founded in May 2009 under the name Mojang Specifications by game programmer Markus Persson, best known for creating the popular independent game Minecraft, a sandbox game.

One hit wonders would be the right category for this one. - htoutlaws2012

Really, you guys like Minecraft? Minecraft has a cancerous community of 6 year olds who don't know how to spell. It is a boring piece of junk. In fact, it is actually a rip-off of an old game that was released many years ago! Mojang only got their fame of 6-8 year old idiots. Terraria is way better than Minecrap.

I Can't Believe Bethesda Is Above This, Minecraft Is Overhyped And Notch is A Greedy Jerk - VideoGamefan5

A selfish company that ripped off Infiniminer AND Roblox! (FYI Roblox was made in 2006.)

69 Team 6 Game Studios Team 6 Game Studios

They're so bad that nobody knows that they exist.

They ruined the FlatOut series...
Enough said

Come on, this one should be #1 in all "TOP 10 WORST GAME DEVELOPERS". Why? I'll explain you why. Team 6 has completely awful games. Remember the masterpiece of the FlatOut saga? (I mean, from FO1(PC) to FO: Ultimate Carnage). Why not FlatOut 3? Because that game sucked. A lot. Even more that your mind could conceive. It featured the worst physics of the entire PC catalogue. Bloom/blur overuse, worst models, crappy AI...

I got excited when I saw there was going to be a port of FlatOut 1 to wii. FO1 was amazing, however, the wii port was the same crappy game as FlatOut 3, for the same problems mentioned above. Not only FlatOut games by Team6 sucked, as every (or almost every) game from Team 6 feels like an A ripoff you can find on the "FREE" section of the Google Play Store. 70% of Team 6 games are <Insert>RandomEuropeanCountry</insert> Street Racing.

I hate Team 6. I hate Team 6 for making awful games. I hate Team 6 for almost everything ...more

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

72 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.

Rock star sucks

74 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.

76 Overkill Software Overkill Software Overkill Software is a video game developer founded in 2009 in Stockholm, Sweden by Ulf Andersson, Bo Andersson and Simon Viklund, formerly founders and owners of Grin.

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.

77 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.

78 NetherRealm Studios NetherRealm Studios NetherRealm Studios is an American video game developer based in Chicago, Illinois. 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?

79 Kemco Kemco Kemco Corporation is a Japanese video game developer and publisher established in 1984 as a subsidiary of Kotobuki Engineering & Manufacturing Co., Ltd., located in Seika, Kyoto, Japan.

Its like Kemco doesn't even know gaming - tranhotwheel04

You know what's funny these guys are still making games and are not defuncted yet they have made some of the worst games I've ever played - htoutlaws2012

I loved Kemco! Sure, they made Batman: Dark Tomorrow, the Bugs Bunny games and Daikatana, but they made good games too! Just to name a few...
Dragon Wars; the NES ports of Deja Vu, Shadowgate and Uninvited; Rescue: The Embassy Mission; Kablooey! ; the Top Gear series; Phalanx; Kid Klown in Crazy Chase; Dragon View and Stone Protectors.

80 GoodGame Studios GoodGame Studios Goodgame Studios is an online games company founded in 2009 and based in Hamburg, Germany. The company has created several games, including Goodgame Empire, Goodgame Big Farm, Goodgame Galaxy, Goodgame Gangster, Goodgame Poker, Shadow Kings: Dark Ages, and Legends of Honor.

Very greedy indeed! They don't care about making cool games, but rather copying, badly, already existing successful games hoping to make easy money. They have no respect for the gamers, who are treated like nothing more than dumb cash-cows and they exploit their employees with very low salaries and fire-hire policies.

Very greedy company! Sketchy advertising policies. (Targeting children's T.V. channels with so called free games that you can not even begin to survive in, unless you make in game purchases. with every update they raise the cost of items that in game purchases buy. then claim that in app purchases have not gone up. Could have been a top company but got way to greedy.

Its ok
