Top 10 Worst Years In Gaming History
The Top Ten
As horrid as anything goes, the video game crash is what makes it still impossible to beat such a horrendous year in gaming history.
Ah, the horrid crash that brought forth some of the worst titles yet.
I don't know how anything else can top this one.
The Terrible Industry Crash - VideoGamefan5
2014 was just a year of disappointing releases back to back. Games that were hoped to be masterpieces ended being mediocre. Just an entire year of disappointment. - Tearaxe
I was working on making a list of top three games for each year starting with 2000 all the way to 2019. Literally struggled to even come up with games to put in the 2014 list, much less good ones.
At least there is one thing that saves 2014: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
Almost no good games this year. The only good games were remasters of games from 2013 and everything that could have been good was pushed to 2015 instead. Sad year for gaming.
Sonic got butchered to death with Sonic 06. The good games were Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, and Zelda: Twilight Princess.
This was a good year for gaming! The ps3 and wii were released and a lot of good games
Sonic, Bomberman, And Crash Bandicoot Got TORTURED! - VideoGamefan5
The year Sonic died - B1ueNew
I really don't care if there were some decent games that came out in 2015. It is simply the worst year to ever be conceived in many reasons, and it can burn for all I care. - PageEmperor
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
This was the release of Superman 64, and it sucks so bad. 1999 was a good year, but it's all Superman 64's fault
I actually liked (2006-2012), except 2009. Life started to suck in 2013 though
That is irrelevant. This is where we discuss about years in gaming, not years in general. - PageEmperor
The year when Far Cry 3 and Dishonored was released... Nope. - Aguythatpeopleignores
The year Mass Effect 3 released.
The year of disappointing sequals except Borderlands 2 - htoutlaws2012
Almost no good games came out in 2016. Full of games with microtransactions all over the place.
When the hype train went too far and started to crash and burn the whole industry.
The year Nintendo died, And Overwatch was released - B1ueNew
Jesus christ, not a single good game that interested me that had a score higher than 85 came out! What
Rinse, market, sell, repeat. Rinse and repeat the rinse, market, sell and repeat over and over. Best year ever if you like bugs, glitches, broken games and games that don't even work. What a shameful way for companies and corporations to end a decade of gaming.
Only unfinished were published this year. Only death stranding can save us in my opinion.
Only good game was rdr2, division 2 was alright, Fallout 76 killed everyone, If you were playing games in 2019, it was probably older games smh.
Why is this on here? This is one of the best years of gaming. Grand Theft Auto V ), Saints Row 4, Assassins Creed Black Fla - venomouskillingmachine
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
This is about gaming not about murders. This is the best yea for gaming, remove it off the list. The Switch came out and had awesome titles like Zelda Breath Of The Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey ad way more. Overall this is the best year of gaming in the past 4 years.
I think this is when Fortnite (the abomination) was made.
The year PINK GOLD PEACH was made - Yoshidude
This year was just a continuation of the crash of 83.
No games toyear. - computerfan0
Fortnite and PUBG getting attention. Gamings wrost years. Thanks to gods they are dying. Rise Minecraft lol.
This year was a sad one for the gaming community. especially when bethesda released flopout 69 (fallout 76) - gunzgobang76
Steam especially has the worst games, filled with indie trash. But a lot of big name companies have been squeezing out some real stinkers, too. I'm hoping 2019 will be better.
I stopped buying new music this year, because a lot of the 2018 songs suck!
PlayStation 3 was hacked, Get this higher - B1ueNew
Atari 2600 disappointed us (such as Spider-Man, Pac man...) - KENNYSTEWART
The release of the E.T. game.
Virtual Boy, Sega Saturn, Tiger R-Zone, the Nintendo 64 got delayed to 1996.. but the PS1 released. But still by far the worst year for hardware. And 1995 only has like 3 notable games... Chrono Trigger, Donkey Kong Country 2 and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.
The year that the super creepy NES advert (YOU CANNOT BEAT US! ) came out and scarred many kids watching (I think it came out this year. If not then please correct me if I'm wrong).
The year The Wizard and that those godawful Nintendo cartoons (Mario, Zelda, and Captain N) came out.
Spider man (3 and friend or foe) - KENNYSTEWART
Uh, this year brought is TF2, arguably the best game to play on Steam to this day...
The company known as LJN started to publish games since that year...until 2000 - LeetHaterz
LJN released Spider-Man: return of the sinister six - KENNYSTEWART
