The 9 Worst Videogame Launches of All-Time

Dorkly: The launch of the latest SimCity was, to put it mildly, not handled well. To put it spicily, it was a huge unimaginable mess – with people unable to download the game, play the game due to lack of available servers, features being turned off, and with a number of updates released post-launch trying to fix some of the major issues users were experiencing. This didn’t go on for just the first few hours of its release though – some of this is still going on, a week after release. For a smaller game and company, this might not be such a surprise – but this is from one of the largest publishers in videogames and one of the biggest franchises in videogames. However, SimCity is not the first game to put users through this kind of launch mess. Here are 9 other games that had terrible launches. (Diablo III, PC, PS3, Ultima IX: Ascension, World of Warcraft, Xbox 360)

Diablo 3 is also one of the worst sequels from well known franchises in the history of video games, if u ever do a list with the worst sequels dont forget to put it at the TOP, at 2nd place put FFXIII & 3rd RE6 & this will be perfect.

there have been much worse sequels than diablo 3. I was at least able to enjoy diablo 3 more than most games, it just wasnt an all time favorite like the first 2.
Heres a list of terrible sequels.
Deus Ex: The Invisible War, Devil May Cry 2, Duke Nukem Forever, crysis 2, fable 2/3, dragon age 2, perfect dark zero, driv3r, etc...
its hard to call a good game one of the worst sequels ever...

These are all mmo's. I thought for sure Daikatana would be on that list. Still not a bad list, though.

D3 was so disappointing I was so excited waited ten years then we get the infamous error 37 not to mention how much the game sucks
