The last few months game launches have been horrible. But we have seen alot of bad releases through out the years. Here are five of them.
Driveclub was the worst i think. No, maybe Diablo 3... or...
Battlefield 4....wasn't fixed until 2 months ago.
Not for all. I had it on PC and it worked 100% from day one. Never had a problem with it, so for me, I had a really positive experience with the game, even though it could still use improvements....the maps.
At least those game were playable unlike BF4..Which no matter what you did something would always happen.
I have been playing BF4 since launch(ps4) and never saw those signifacnt problems, i did lag once ina a while but NEVER anything that would make the game unplayable Mustve been reqlly lucky i guess
Halo Masterchief Collection Broken 1 week and counting
I think Grand Theft Auto Online was even worse for me than D3. Still get disconnected and then end up in single player and than have to wait like 5 minutes to get back into multiplayer. Loading is so slow.
GTA was understandable though. It was the fastest selling entertainment product of all time, and they launched the MP 2 weeks after the game was released. In that time, people got their "fix" for the game and was ready to play online. When you have 20+ million people trying to connect to a game in the same day(s), it's expected to not work properly. I played on PS3 and I believe I was one of the lucky ones. On the 3rd day after GTAO launched, I had no issues at all. Let's just hope the PS4/Xbone launch is much smoother this time around.
Anybody notice that nearly all games are having terrible launches! We need a video-game related Russell Brand so we can wake up and face this travesty head on in a revolutionary format!
His topics seem to range all the way from politics to Kim Kardashian's arse, so he might touch on gaming at some point, there is hope i think!
Ya BF4 takes the cake on this one. I remember Gears 2 had lots of issues MP wise. BF4 lost alot of players due to the year of issues. Destiny though had a good launch very few issues for the most part.
im gonna have to give it to GTA, Bethesda, but most of all probably DICE. I have said I will never buy a Rockstar or Bethesda game new ever again....I will however buy the GOTY editions from the bargain bins with all the dlc for free once they FINALLY fix most of the bugs or at least the ones that are going to get fixed. I would have to say DICE or Ubishit (the MP in their games...AC3 was my final tipping point, but there were many...the infinite animus hack was the straw) though because I have swore I will never buy a game that has their name on the box period. So those are my votes. Absolutely terrible devs that release broken garbage.
Gta single player worked fine, Online when it did come out did have comnectivity issues but was resolved in a few days. Skyrim was spot-free unless you tried to brake shit. Did you even play these games at launch or did you let some troll tell what to buy?
WoW was worst launch ever no contest. It was unplayable for months. If you got on server you would get stuck in loot bug. The problems persisted for months. 1 Server maintenance took over 3 weeks. Even free game-time was given
WoW is having major server problems right now with its latest expansion, people queueing at login screen for hours to get into the game only to be disconnected after waiting so long.
Halo MCC . Biggest xbox game of the year and multiplayer doesn't work even with all those Servers and the power of the cloud
I think you have to add the new Elder scrolls to this also.
Eso or Skyrim? Cuz Skyrim was a monumental release, ESO is just unmentionable.
Terribly hard to read through google translate, but from what i gather this is more of a rant than actually rating the top 5 worst launches, im sure in fact there are hundreds of games whose launches ended entire companies, these games here all went on to be succesful so according to this author a bad game launch has nothing to do with anything besides broken promises.
Halo MCC should be there. The #1 flagship franchise for Xbox launches with its multiplayer servers broken? Really?
