Top Ten Worst Video Game Reviewers

Let's say there is this game or movie you wanna try out but is afraid it will might turn out bad. So you listen to a review and you believe them until you found out it was a good game/movie after all. Here are reviewers that suck at reviewing.

The Top Ten

1 IGN IGN IGN is a San Francisco–based games and entertainment media company operated by IGN Entertainment Inc., a subsidiary of j2 Global and wholly owned by Ziff Davis.

These guys should be #1 half of the time I don't agree with there ratings, even Gamespot is much better only because it isn't biased I mean Halo 4 a 9.8 that's overrating it a little too much don't you think, or basicly any Call of Duty game after Blackops 1 with a high rating is absolutely ridiculous. The sport games they rate way too high example Madden why it's the same game with an updated roster with absolutely no changes which can be said for other sport games. - htoutlaws2012

They are so ignorant some of there reviews are good but others suck. The Fox News of the gaming Media. Or am I wrong? - HeavyDonkeyKong

They're well-known for getting paid to give good scores for games we already know are barely worth crap. The only honest review seems to be Xtreme Paintball, which got a 0.7.

I'm not even sure if this guy should count, considering he's an obvious troll if I ever saw one. However, he's heavily biased, he compares games to other games that aren't even in the same genre, his voice is very irritating, and he barely even looks at the games he review before dismissing them as bad. Take a look at his review of Undertale. Regardless of whether or not you like Undertale, you have to admit that he made a bad review. He spent more than half of the video complaining that the game couldn't run on older PCs, and he only looked at the game for about (I'm not kidding) 10 MINUTES before quitting! I'm sorry, but if you think you can form a solid opinion of a game by playing t for 10 minutes, you're a moron! Also, his complaints were just stupid. Even if Mr. gligar13vids is a troll or not, that doesn't change the fact that his videos are a pain to sit through, and he is in my opinion the worst video game critic ever.

This guy just takes good games and just say they are bad. He is obviously one of those first person shooter retarts. He mostly bash Sonic and Nintendo games and only say their music is good. - Chaotixhero

This guy is completely AWFUL at reviewing video games. He screams like a idiot and say things that's in the game but it really isn't. He mostly bash Sonic the most which is no surprise to me what so ever. - Chaotixhero

He's a stupid classic sonic fanboy who bash good modern sonic & he reviews game that never released yet

I like mario better than sonic, but he treats sonic like a duce

His Sonic Adventure 2 review. It's inaudible. - SelfDestruct

His sonic unleashed review & some of his Archie sonic reviews are okay. They are way better then his hideous spongebob Squarepants the Simpsons & family guy review.

I bet I hate everything unknown as alex. is displeased with mixedfan8643's star wars part 2 review & his sonic 06 review.

He's a insult to mature archie sonic fans. Now he's a insult the mature haters now.

When I read his Archie Sonic reviews, there was just something about this guy that rubbed me the wrong way. I think it was his unnecessary vitriol where it may not be warranted and lack of ability to handle disagreement.. Mixedfan just does not seem like a erson you would want to talk to.. at all.

5 ScrewAttack!

They barely review games but that doesn't stop me from putting them here. They are also the same people that called the Wii U Nintendo's biggest mistake, make Goku lose TWICE against Superman in Death battle, and called Sonic Boom worster than (I'm not even kidding) Superman 64 and Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis. No wonder Screw Attack is now getting a little bit of hate. Screw them. - Chaotixhero

I like Death Battle, but these guys don't do a lot of gaming related stuff. The Wii U was a mistake but at the same time it wasn't. A good console with bad marketing. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Everything older went downhill, and so ScrewAttack!

The only reason I watch is for death battles. - Skullkid755

His early reviews were short, but informed discussions of interesting games, but the last year or two his output has ceased to be worth watching. It seems like he is chasing YouTube metrics at the expense of quality

His content is enjoyable, What is he doing here.

He is great, what the hell is he doing here? - Yordridge

This guy tries to review games that he has no idea how to play, and he let's his stream chat walk him through basically the whole game. If he gets stuck and the chat can't help him, he just quits the game. Plus, he complains about people making TIHYDP videos, but if he didn't suck so much they wouldn't have to.

Worst let's player ever... He also does reviews so he can be here.

9 GameSpot GameSpot GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on certain video games.

If any game comes in a blue case, you bet your ass it's getting a free pass.

Oh JOY! Didn't we all ADORE their Kirby and the Rainbow Curse review? - DCfnaf

10 TheMysteriousMrEnter

Wait, he reviews video games? - Delgia2k

I will admit he's still doing decent now compared to the others on this list but now he's getting... A little bit boring now. He starting doing re-reviews because "his older ones ain't so good because he was so angry". Who cares? - Chaotixhero

Well, there were a few cases in which these were justifiable, like with his original Pet Sitter Pat review, which caused people to harass one of the writers, but I can see where that's coming from. He can be a bit boring at times, but I think his recent reviews are doing a bit better at keeping people's attention (or at least my attention). - MKBeast

I thought he just made crappy, boring reviews on animation while getting angry.

He's a hell of a lot better than MatPat.

Anyway, I think this site overhates him. Plus, he doesn't review games. - DCfnaf

Yeah I put my own self on here. My reviews are pretty bad yet I still make more. I take videos off of YouTube and talk over them calling them my "reviews". I also sound so mellow and I barely edit my reviews. I also try to be funny but the jokes never works. Yeah...when I call myself a terrible reviewer, you know it's bad. - Chaotixhero

There's this guy that you should listen I don't know his real name but his user name is meltingman234 he's from YouTube & deviant art you should check him out

... Well I guess you could be biased but... - HeavyDonkeyKong

So what if he prefers Sonic over Mario that's fine, what do you have against him? He isn't a brat, either. You can't hate on someone because they dislike what you like! come on ~Gunsn'Shadowhedgehogz

12 Metacritic

Fairly harsh for an uninformed opinion. Whilst it is true that metacritic gathers the average opinion on games, they use a system using a significant amount of weighing where the values involved aren't published. As a delightful example reviews submitted by kotaku has a significantly (SIGNIFICANTLY) higher impact on the score (in fact the common belief is kotaku has one of the highest) then other smaller sources.

Which is why I'm also voting metacritic, not only is it widely used as a source of critic score without being properly understood, their business model is incredibly shady and the honestly vast corruption involved in the systems they use cause a much much higher amount of damage then the average reviewer will ever have the ability to do.

Metacritic Is Just Awful, If You're Looking For Rotten Tomatoes For Video Games (By The Way Metacritic Also Reviews Movies And By The Way They Also Suck At Reviewing Movies) Than This Is The Site For You, I Hate Metacritic So Much They Gave Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, Paper Mario: Color Splash, Halo 4, And Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare Higher Ratings Than Sonic Generations!, Man Metacritic Just Sucks And Is So Biased - VideoGamefan5

Anybody who votes Metacritic is a moron. It's literally just a tool for getting a comprehensive summary of the average opinion of a game, the same thing Rotten Tomatoes does for movies. They don't even review games. They just tell you what other people think of them.

They dump all over the FNaF games. All of the time. And for dumb reasons too. - DCfnaf

Wikipedia said he was a game critic and if Mr. Enter got on here, MatPat gets on here too. - DCfnaf

14 The Irate Gamer

How on earth was this guy not on here to begin with?

He's a sonic fanboy who bash sonic unleashed

Truly the worst reviewer of all time, as he decides which games are good or bad and mostly most of them suck. He has been a rip off of the AVGN for a long time and should be number one. - BatmanOfToday

18 Angry Joe

How? I agree mostly with the RTS reviews even though he destroyed civilization 5 and total war 2 AND angry joe actually put battlefield the cops and robbers one as one of the worst games of 2015. So your points are invalid. Also he barely reviews Call of Duty so you cannot get so salty because of the advanced warfare review. Or the over watch review. by the way ever heard of the witcher franchise s? I would say he loves those games.

Simply biased to all hell in every single way towards anything that isn't Battlefield or an RTS. Simple as that.

So, what about his launch score of Battlefield 4 being a 4, before it got fixed or Hardline being a 5? Or how about they time he ripped into Rome: Total War 2? - MKBeast

These guy are not that good at reviewing. They are almost at IGN's level of suck. Thanks to to popular reviewers like SomecallmeJohnny, X-play is going down the market. - Chaotixhero
