Ah, the horrid crash that brought forth some of the worst titles yet.

The worst year for hyping trailers and such dissapointing games. I am talking to you Ubisoft! - CanadianGuy99

I can think of reasons.
1. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric & Shattered Crystals
2. Xbox Live & PlayStation Network HACKED around Christmas time
3. Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Discontinued
4. Watch_Dogs, Destiny & Assassin's Creed Unity

If you were an Microsoft fan at this point this was probably the worst year for you lol - htoutlaws2012

Year in which Ride to Hell Retribution got released. Being that it on it's own is capable of easily winning 2013 a "worst year in which A game was released" list it should, at the very veeery least, get the second spot.

The day ps2 died - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Thq died this year :(

Sonic, Bomberman, And Crash Bandicoot Got TORTURED! - VideoGamefan5

I can show you reasons why 2006 sucked.
1. Sonic the Hedgehog's 15th anniversary was terrible. There was Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis for the Game Boy Advance & Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) for Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3. Nice job, Sega. You ruined Sonic's franchise by letting him have an unhappy anniversary.
2. Tiger Telematics went defunct.
3. Crash Boom Bang!
4. Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots is released on the Game Boy Advance & it's horrible.

Here's what 2006 a horrible year for the video game industry.
1. Tiger Telematics is defunct.
2. Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
3. Crash Boom Bang!
Pretty bad!

In 2015 A game called The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt was released. I doubt it. - Aguythatpeopleignores

While the death of Iwata and Konami's suicide is definitely sad, this was the year that brought us The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Rocket League, and much more. If anything, this was a comeback, especially after the pile of crap 2014 was.

At of the three years with the current gen consoles(2013 doesn't count because the PS4 and Xbox one had like 3 games), this one was easily the best. Arkham Knight, MKX, Halo 5, etc. - Therandom
