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

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

Looks horrible

Bubsy came back... - Fullwalking2

3 1-2 Switch

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

The worst starter game I've seen. - Randomator

This needs to be #1 on this list. As of writing this, it's at #2. - PlanetDeadwing

Worst switch game ever! - Fullwalking2

4 Sea of Thieves

Its not even out yet

5 Destiny 2

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

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

It hurts to know a good game like this is on this list.

6 Star Wars Battlefront 2

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

With a current average user score of 0.8/10 on Metacritic after over 4,000 ratings, this is easily one of the worst-rated, if not THE worst-rated game in history. Why? Because the whole game is a microtransaction-driven scam, designed and sold purely out of greed. - PlanetDeadwing

Pay 2 win EA cash hoarding garbage. - cjWriter1997

7 Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3

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.

9 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

Angry joe, anybody? - Fullwalking2

Where do I start so disapointing

10 Halo Wars 2

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

Finally, Call Of Duty Is Not Number One - VideoGamefan5

The Newcomers

? Super Lucky's Tale

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 - ikerevievs

? 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

The Contenders

11 Scalebound
12 NBA 2k18

Same crap every year - Mcgillacuddy

Overhyped garbage

Pay to win nonsense - ikerevievs

13 Yooka Laylee
14 Tacoma
15 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

16 FIFA 18

A massive stupidity of gaming. - Fullwalking2

17 Metal Gear Survive

This Game Ugh Just Ugh - VideoGamefan5

18 Madden NFL 18

EA makes more trash. - Fullwalking2

19 Crackdown 3
20 Project Sonic 2017

Sonic forces is a good game only critics hate it - ikerevievs

This shouldn’t be on the list same as super Mario odyssey. Both games look awesome & very promising. 2017 is a great year for gaming!

54/100 on Metacritic. $40 is criminal for a game that only lasts two hours.
