Top 10 Worst Video Game Developers


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Valve Valve

Honestly, Valve didn't really make bad games, it's that they refuse to see the ton of money they could be making. Lots of people have been demanding Half Life 3, enough to out-sell everything this year. So what does a company need to do, SUPPLY. I learned this in 7th grade, but for some reason Valve dropped out of preschool because they don't even know how to count to 3. It's not only Half Life 3, people wanted Team Fortress 3, Portal 3, and Left 4 Dead 3, but Valve is just to blind to see this. They are making money on Steam, but can't they do both like EA is doing, or heck Sega split into two to make the USA games and the Japan games. Valve needs new management or they WILL go bankrupt. - PinataonSugar

What? I love Valve's games! Especially Team Fortress 2! - Pastakirby7

The fact that Valve is even on here says a lot about the company. Half life, Team fortress, Portal, Left 4 dead. All games which should have been continued on. Games which would have probably made a ton of money just from their IPs, from their legacy. But valve honestly doesn't listen. It doesn't put an ear to the ground, because they think what the customers have to say isn't worth listening to. It's a sad state of affairs, it really is.

Couldn't care less about community hope a miracle happens and valve bankrupts...

102 Halfbrick Studios Halfbrick Studios Halfbrick Studios is an Australian video game developer based in Brisbane, Australia. They have developed the Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride franchises.

Really? Monster Dash?! Jetpack Joyride?! They were epic original games!

Someone had to be really really stupid to put this here.

What GUYS THEY MADE FRUIT NINJ -- oh wait, I remembered that they kicked out all of their game designers.

103 Teyon Teyon

Best known for the Heavy Fire series, This company apparently thinks its still the year 2000 since on the Heavy Fire games they thought it would be a good idea to make it a RAIL SHOOTER. Oh and did I mention their latest game was made in 2013 and costed $40 dollers? They should be on the top 10 for MAJORLY ripping people off.

They made Just Cause, those games are brilliant. And then they made a good Mad Max game.

They developed DBZ Sagas and ruined MK, which is even worse than Acclaim

There is no word, on how bad they are.

If anyone else has a reason, put it down!

Not a Develop game. It's a Company.

110 Sierra Entertainment Sierra Entertainment

They are just getting on my Nerves! They recently developed Kings Quest. This game was released on 7/28/15... They released the FIRST Chapter out of 5. If you are going to follow the Big hitters ( for example, "TellTale") with an Episodic game be prepared to release each episode every 4 to 8 weeks. It is getting close to the 5 month mark and they haven't even released part 2 of the 5 Part Series? Are you kidding me? This isn't the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones or Tales From the Borderlands! They are Completely Horrible in my eyes because they couldn't give a S*^_ about their Fans waiting on the next 4 Episodes! Five Months & still NO Part 2... Sierra Entertainment is a JOKE in my Eyes!

Activision owns them now. They made the first PC CD games, and now they're working for greed. It's a good thing nobody remembers them anymore.

118 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.

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.

What? Ok their new mentality might be crap but Their games are Still GOLDEN (Even though it took an Expansion pack to make Diablo 3 golden) - Aguythatpeopleignores

119 Sega Sega Sega Games Co., Ltd., originally short for Service Games and officially styled as SEGA, is a Japanese multinational video game developer and publisher headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, with multiple offices around the world.

You people are idiots they made Sonic but they sort of going down hill my main complaint is now that they don't make consoles which is a shame

They are a stupid joke. They decided to start torturing their one of the most popular character (Sonic the Hedgehog) by creating Sonic '06, which was a glitchy mess of a story. They didn't stop, however; a few years later, they partnered with Big Red Button to brutally tear apart and murder Sonic with Sonic Boom. With the Sonic Franchise coming to an end, they are absolutely dumb for partnering with Big Red Button.

Although Sega doesn't deserve to be the top spot on this list, or even in the top 10, they really do deserve to be higher on this list. The games they make now are mediocre at best.

Really?! Sega?! The company that brought us Super Monkey Ball, Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd, Billy Thatcher & the Giant Egg, Samba de Amigo, Shenmue, Ristar and House of the Dead is on the list? Actually, SEGA deserves to be on the best list and the worst list. Me tell you why later. - Kieran Stark (aka The Ultimate Daredevil)

120 Square Enix Square Enix Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. is a Japanese video game developer, publisher, and distribution company that is best known for its role-playing video game franchises, which include the Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Kingdom Hearts role-playing game series.

Square Enix made kingdom hearts 2. They should be put in the top 20 game publishers because of that how does one put square Enix in here? Guessing they just butthurt fans who put this in here

I agree with the guy who says that this is one of the most awesome of developers. They created FINAL FANTASY!

I don't think the shooting and driving is bad. You must be horrible at cause I am too. You have to learn to flow with the controls and Square Enix isn't the worst.

Square Enix had there own online distribution system, which they scrapped after several years and switched to steam. Anybody who had purchased a game from them online lost all ability to play them or redownload them. Square Enix gave no refunds or steam keys as reimbursement. Basically a big FU to their fan base
