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 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.

I clearly hate IGN for several reasons.
1. They call some games repetitive while they give all Call of Duty games perfect.
2. They give good games bad scores and bad games good scores (usually)
3. They criticize a game for a dumb reason (such as the infamous too much water)
4. They hate the Sonic series.

Clearly 0/10, too much IGN.

Pokémon HG/SS got a lower score because "it's a remake".
The only con of Majora's Mask 3D according to IGN? The water temple. That one con lowered the score to 8.7/10.
What do they think is bad about Pokken Tournament - a fighting game? Is it the sub par voice acting? Nah, of course it's the "overwhelming mechanics".
Now let's look at what they said about Assassin's Creed Unity. Towards the end, the reviewer described it as "revolutionary". Really? The buggy mess that is Unity is revolutionary?
They are the worst reviewers because they'll come up with a bunch of excuses to lower the final score of a game they don't personally like while rating games like Call of Duty and Evolve highly despite them being mediocre for them partnership deals.
If you want a non biased review of a video game, you don't go to IGN. Enough said.

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.

They gave Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire 7.8/10 for having "too much water" when Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire had just as much "water" and got a 9/10. Not only that, that gave Paper Mario: Sticker Star 8.3/10, while they gave Paper Mario: Color Splash that is essentially the same game except with better graphics and better humor a 7.3/10. No, just no.

2 Gligar13vids

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.

Even ign has better reviews than him

See the Mario Kart 8 review...

3 mariotehplumber

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.

I go to watch my favorite YouTubers, Sykoh, play Sonic Heroes (he's great maybe watch him sometime) and Sonic Adventure 2 by Mariotehidiot pops up. I decide to click on it. I hear swearing and just ugh. He is the worst YouTuber ever. Racist, sexist, and just horrible.

He complained about a buckle on sonic I don't see the buckle anywhere

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

4 Mixedfan8643

This guy is worst then mr enter & illiniguy34 (I don't hate but there's someone that I prefer over him & that someone is meltingman234) he never shut up things that hate like spongebob squarepants (not just new spongebob but old spongebob) he deserve to have a article in a troll wiki. If XMarshmallowBunny99X & mobrosstudios now anim8ball see his cartoon review's & that spongebob hate art they will be not happy about him.

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.

This is a Message for you mixedfan8643. You shouldn't take everything too seriously. Don't hate something too seriously it's okay to hate something (including sonic boom & teen titans go) just don't do it.

This guy is a mr enter fanboy. he made a top ten list that's inspired by mr enters Top 10 Worst Patrick's a Prick Episodes. this list is about the worst bart Simpson episode I maybe hate bart but this list horrible. That's not all he reviews other T.V. show that is worser then the SpongeBob review that he made.

5 ProJared Jared Knabenbauer (born August 28, 1985), better known online as ProJared, is an American YouTube personality. He is best known for his video game reviews and videos related to Dungeons & Dragons. Knabenbauer also worked extensively with various YouTubers outside of his own channel.

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?

Yeah, I'm a GAMER
G - cheat
A - on
M - my
E - wife
R -

He didn't actually do that, it was all a hoax, and if he did, why is that such a big deal? People do that all the time!

6 The Game Theorists (MatPat) The Game Theorists is a YouTube channel that centers around gaming. They have shows such as: Game Theory, The Science of, Sidequesting and Digressing, Crossover, Game Change, Culture Shock and a Brief History. This channel is mainly argued against for their game theory content.

Whereas I dunno about opinions, his game theories are pretty crappy. He made a theory that Dr. Light from Mega Man is evil, while using Non Canon evidence (the Archie Comics). He tried to use math to claim that Majora's Moon is not a threat, even though Legend of Zelda is a FANTASY series. Finally, I honestly don't know if I wanna take the opinion of a guy who used to make videos theorizing the boob width of game characters, so...

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

How is he here?! he's brilliant!

he's terrible at reviewing

7 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.

Stop saying sonic boom is good only beacause its sonic Chaotixhero stop saying all sonic games are good I agree A:BfA and superman 64 are worse heres my scores
Sonic boom:Shattered crystal gets a 17/100 it sucks has weak gameplay,mediocore graphics bad designs looks cheaply made. Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric gets a 5/100 terrible like shattered crystal but worse and terrible 3d gameplay Aquaman:battle for atlantis gets 4/100 terrible gameplay graphics and visuals superman 64 gets 0/100 So awful

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.

Everything older went downhill, and so ScrewAttack!

8 DSP Gaming

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

Um...

Only 4 games deserved praise.
Splatoon, Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors and Pikmin 3...

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

My note is :Mediocre

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

10 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.

I decided to put metacritic in here because I heard that the site itself recieved complaints which is mostly about how they assign game metascores like if you assign an 'A' into a review, then they assign it as a 100 which in my point of view should be at least 90 and that the 100 should applied to an 'A+' because its kind of overrating it too much. Its also that some video game critics give some games a low score that lower than it should be and that it has several complaints due to how unfair it is and that's what I don't like and why I put this into this list.

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.

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

The Contenders
11 Darknessthecurse
12 The Irate Gamer

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.

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

He's a sonic fanboy who bash sonic unleashed

Obvious AVGN ripoff.

13 TheMysteriousMrEnter

1. He doesn't review games.
2. His reviews themselves aren't too bad. Yeah, he's not the best with his temper at times, but at least he has enough self awareness to realize if he screwed up. His reviews are also pretty good ones, since he covers a lot of flaws and information, and he doesn't show much, if any, bias.
3. To anyone who says that he's a disgrace to NC or whatever, please realize that there's more than one reviewer, and there are reviewers that came before them.

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?

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).

There are worse reviewers than mr enter. I don't hate him but I used to be a hater of him a immature but I'm still not a fan of him.

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

14 Chaotixhero

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.

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

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

Pretty biased, weirdo.

15 TheCrimsonTaco

His Twilight Princess Review.

16 Game Trailer
17 Silent Rob
18 Feminist Frequency

All about their videos about games are biased and talks down on games that don't deserve. Hitman Absolution is sexist because you can kill strippers and position their bodies around? You can do that for anyone regardless of sex, race and class.
But the worst is their reviews because they talk about the little, unimportant things in the games and barely talk about any of the gameplay, graphics and sound. If you want an example, watch their Rise of the TOMB RAIDER review.

The epitome of uninformed, Feminist Frequency has a tendency to make up whatever bs to get people who haven't a grasp on common gaming knowledge on their side. I may not like the death threats they recieve, but I also don't tolerate blind stupidity, so Feminist Frequency deserves a spot in the top 10 for me.

Can the internet police please come and just.. I don't know... slap their wrists?

19 Worth a Buy

Often poorly researched and offering a knee jerk reaction to the video games industry. His input is often in the same vein as the loudest person on a steam forum. Believes himself to be the voice of the people whilst showing a disdain for the people. A terrible reviewer but somewhat likeable person.

One of the most stuck up reviewers of all time, he thinks he's the only honest video game reviewer left, yet his videos have no structure and are completely biased.

A complete hypocrite, and overall moron that I don't actually think likes video games deep down.

I agree, this guy never knows what he's doing

20 youngdefiant

I'm actually a friend to Youngdefiant, so when I private chatted him twitter, he said that he was just messing around with his channel just to get views, and entertain himself on a daily basis. He also said that his channel is just a joke channel and it shouldn't be taken seriously, as he did said he had played games that he ranted on his channel but he replied that those videos are just a joke even though he's very stubborn heck, I even saw him playing Dragon Ball FighterZ with a friend and behaves nicely to him rather than tolerating him and respects his opinions like a normal person so I had questioned a lot of questions to him.

I questioned how was he doing, and he said that he was doing fine.

Another being what is his favorite anime

And he said his favorite anime was My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, One Piece, Naruto, Yu Yu Hakuso, Demon Slayer, Cowboy Bebop, Seven Deadly Sins, Sword Art Online, Bleach, Gurren Lagann, The Promised Neverland, Full Metal ...more

Hey people this what I would do if I want Youngdefiant to be gone(Send a Note to YouTube.“Dear YouTube, There is a Youtuber Named youngdefiant. Youngdefiant is a selfish YouTuber who calls himself the king of YouTube and thinks he is better than everyone else. You want to know why I called him selfish, it is because He makes fun of us and calls us fake gamers and called his self a real gamer he also he hated on his own subscribers for no reason. And I Think I know why he wants to call himself the king of Youtube, It’s because he wants to make us to feel bad for our selfs and get rid of all our YouTube channels so he could be the only YouTuber around here. Youngdefiant blamed the people that do rants on him even if it’s his fault. So YouTube can you please block his channel and sue him.” From The Youtubers.

he's legitimaticly at the botton of the barrel him saying that the people need good taste is retarded. everyone has tastes why try to manipulate them. he's just nothing but a tool and a flodder and everything he says is like seeing a troll doing this.

He is the worst youtuber ever

21 DSXVV
22 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?

Must be a Call of Duty kid who put ths here

well I've seen him go full retard for once

23 Ike reviews AEBG

This guys sucks at reviewing so BAD

24 Nathaniel Bandy Nathaniel Bandy is a Gaming Youtuber. He was born on October 12th, 1993 in Virginia. His favorite video game is Super Mario 64.
25 X-Play

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.
