Top 10 Worst Video Games of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Mass Effect: Andromeda

It's sad to know that this is a part of an incredibly successful series. The whole game just felt entirely empty in terms of story, which was once the main strength of the Mass Effect games. - Mcgillacuddy

Now this is just a big middle finger to the fans of the original Mass Effect series. - cjWriter1997

This just ruined the Mass effect franchise. - Fullwalking2

By far the worst. this is literally the worst videogame that has ever been produced and it manages to stink the most when its compared to other bad videogames. It's just so horrible that you can only throw it into a trash can instead of playing it, This game is not even worth pirating. - CupheadTheBest

2 Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back

Bubsy's new pose is literally a rip-off of Sonic's pose. Trust me, I saw on Twitter when one guy edited the picture of Bubsy and moved his arm from side to side in a similar fashion to Sonic. Expect critics and audiences to tear this game apart. What could possibly go wrong? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Why is he back nobody asked for him to be back - ikerevievs

Damn you JonTron for making him relevant again!

Ok it wasn't THE worst last year - codydoestuff

3 Star Wars Battlefront 2

Terrible gameplay, incredibly bad story, and just piss easy. Its incredible how pandemic battlefront 2 was made twelve years ago and kicks this one ass

Star wars is garbage anyways

My jaw dropped like a rock when I saw the User score for this game on Metacritic. It's literally one of the worst scores of ANYTHING on the internet. This game is typical EA, though. They will find the most ridiculous ways possible to milk you of your bank account. - Mcgillacuddy

Same here. And things aren't much different on IGN's community score, which is sitting at a 2.6 "painful" rating! - SelfDestruct

At least Bubsy didn't have any microtransactions. - chopsie01

4 1-2 Switch

God, and I thought Knack was a bad starter game. Why did they make a game that adults can't take seriously because you're literally jerking off the controller - Mcgillacuddy

IT DESTROYED WARIOWARE! I know I sound like a fanboy, but I grew up playing Smooth Moves on the Wii! THIS game destroyed my childhood!

I know I'm going to sound like a fan boy when I say this but, it should've been WarioWare! - GreninjaGuy

5 Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: Mega Battle

Angry Joe gave this a 1/10, and I will have to agree with him on this one. The dodgy hitboxes on enemies make even trying to defeat the smallest of them painful. Not only that, but the final boss is painfully lame, where the cool sword fighting is just quick time events. To make matters worse, the Power Rangers theme, which could have been extremely good, is on a 30 second loop all the time whenever music is programmed, yes in most stages there is literally no music when there should be. So yeah, this is an awful game and is overpriced even at 15 dollars.

Oh yeah I remember when Angry Joe played this. It's one of the laziest and most ridiculous games you could pay money for. It looks and plays like a flash game you can find on the internet, and yet, there are even flash games that are better than this. - Mcgillacuddy

The only good thing I can say about this game is that it does a better job of capturing the 1990's nostalgia than Dean Isrealite's 2017 reboot that ripped off "The Breakfast Club". That's it. There are far better ways to relive your childhood than playing this garbage. - raidramon0

I have never heard of this game, but why make a lazy game? On an Xbox One, especially. in my opinion, I have never even played the game, but this is completely B-rated bull. Only a 7-year old would find this appealing.

6 Just Dance 2018

Four words: SAME! THING! EVERY! YEAR! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

They removed mashups and they mainly havee crappy modern music - SpectralOwl

7 Halo Wars 2

Microsoft studios ran out of ideas! Why did they even make a sequel? - Fullwalking2

I seriously forgot this game existed - Mcgillacuddy

Finally, Call Of Duty Is Not Number One - VideoGamefan5

8 Friday The 13th: The Game
9 Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
10 Gran Turismo Sport

The sad thing is this was one of my most anticipated games of 2017. And what Polyphony delivered was spectacular graphics and intense online but with extremely limited offline (the offline was actually one if Gran Turismo's Staples and to see it being thrown away is a big mistake) and car slots wasted on Vision GT cars and same cars with different body kits, which is also a big deal considering that the car list at launch is rather small at 160 something cars. Will the 400-car free DLC redeem this game for its flaws? I have no idea at this point. - SelfDestruct

I have to agree heavily with SelfDestruct here. This was also one of my most anticipated games of the year next to Project Cars 2, but I was very disappointed at its release. Regardless of its amazing graphics and fun online, this game has a very limited offline. The car choices are garbage. There's literally only one car that was made before 2009 and there are too many concept cars taking up the slots. There is no career mode, just a "campaign mode" that gives you random challenges that don't last or aren't built for the moments. The track selection is also ridiculous as most of the slots are taken by multiple versions of a single location. GT Sport is by far the worst GT in the series. If you want a good racing game for the PS4, get Project Cars 2. The racing customization and 50+ tracks in the game make endless possibilities in custom race mode and even though the car count is similar to GT Sport, it's much more diverse, featuring GT, Rallycross, Indy, old school Indy, Nascar, and ...more - Mcgillacuddy

11 Destiny 2

Much like the first Destiny, D2 features good controls, nice graphics, a better loot system, and a great soundtrack. But it squanders these improvements with a bland storyline, a horribly boring PVP mode, and a terrible first expansion. It has gotten a little better, but its certainly no must buy. - Jackamalio

Not that bad of a game but the expansion thing ruins it. - Mcgillacuddy

The worst dlc of all time, I hate it - Ale9991

Absolute CRAP! - Fuziion

12 Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Bad storyline. - Fullwalking2

This game may become a lot better once it expands like MvC3 did. For now though, it's quite a disappointment - Mcgillacuddy

A robbery, this game is really bad - Ale9991

13 Frenzy Pop: A Emoji Movie Game

This game is just a lame ripoff of candy crush and not even good and the fact it's the emoji movie the game makes it the 2nd worst game of 2017 and one of the worst of all time - ikerevievs

Yes this exists :( - ikerevievs

They seriously made a mobile game based on The Emoji Movie? Well, looks like we're going to have a fun time seeing all the negative reviews for the game...*Goes to Google Play and sees generally positive reviews for it* WHAT. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

14 Sea of Thieves

Its not even out yet

15 Scalebound
16 Super Lucky's Tale

The game looks like its aimed at REALLY young kids, but seems to be trying to be like an old Rareware game. What kid is gonna remember that? - Jackamalio

Cuphead is a much better xbox exclusive than lucky or even yooka laylee witch came out 6 months ago - ikerevievs

This is the reason why no one buys xbox exclusives this is a bland platformer that we got instead of a banjo kozooie or conker sequel instead we got a crappy vr exclusive sequel that doesn't requires vr - ikerevievs

17 Shenmue III

Overhyped SP RPG. If you were a fan of the Gothic series, you will probably enjoy it, or be more forgiving of it's shortcomings, than players new to the title. graphics and animations seem almost a decade behind current offerings. The visuals and environments are nice but certain areas, cutscenes and textures appear overly blocky and flat (post processing appears absent). the Voiceovers (in the English language) are monotonous and mostly devoid of emotional weight, as well as audio hiccups that make environmental effects way too loud. The combat is really a hit or miss kind of thing, regardless of abilities or tactics. timing your attacks has more effect than actually trying to engage enemies tactically. The player movement and animations are somewhat forgivable but when combined with the loot detection mechanic, makes it really frustrating to find items when simply turning your character then requires you to adjust your camera angle to relocate the item you wanted to pick up.

20 Metal Gear Survive
