Top 10 Worst Games of 2020

Alex S. from Link Cable Gaming writes: "There are no two ways about it, 2020 sucked. Many will remember the last 365 days as some of the most trying in living memory and are more than thrilled to cast our 2020 calendars into a large fire. But we can’t really move into 2021 with a clear conscience without totally confronting all the negative things that happened in 2020, including video game releases."

It really hurts to see the XIII Remake in that list. I loved the original game and bought the remake without reading reviews, that was a big mistake. It is sad what they have done to this game.:(

RgR265d ago (Edited 265d ago )

I completely misread your comment before.

Yup I agree

Darthpaul84265d ago

Oh wow! Is it really that bad? Was hoping to give it a go after I play thru my fall backlog

PitbullMonster265d ago

I m sure they will patch a lot of broken things in this game but it will take time. Just wait half a year or a year.

The list became a shit list as soon as Cyberpunk was listed. Just because you played it on your shit base console, doesn't make it one of the worst games of 2020.

Paridinojelly265d ago (Edited 265d ago )

Definitely one of the most disappointing, though. It kind of reminds me of Mass Effect 3.

mikeboccher265d ago

Mass effect 3 was great, just the ending sucked beyond everything.

Ashunderfire86264d ago

Mass Effect 3 was great up until the ending compared to being Cyberpunked by this game!

Knightofelemia264d ago (Edited 264d ago )

ME3 is at least playable and has no game breaking glitches or random crashes unlike Cyberpunk the only thing that blew about ME3 is the ending. I got to enjoy ME3 never had to sit around and wait for an update like Cyberpunk and the second update made the game worse.

Are you thinking of Andromeda? That was a train wreck at launch that never really recovered

it was announced for the base console, so yes it should be on the list

Mr_Luke265d ago

If they say the game is for X, Y, and Z, it has to run well on X, Y and Z.
No excuses. If i can't buy a new console, i still have the old one and i'm really waiting for that game, i get a bad surprise. Bad surprise = disappointing. So yes, it deserves to be there.

Sherif129265d ago

Maybe read the author's reasoning into why it's in their list? Completely agree with their justification.

thorstein264d ago

The game runs well on PC, PS5, and XboxSX. That doesn't mean it isn't a terrible game that (as the author of this piece said) "Cyberpunk 2077 has the best chance of being updated and fixed."

Running well doesn't mean it isn't a glitch filled, unpolished mess.

Ashunderfire86264d ago

Ray Trace Lotion 🧴 only mask the problems on the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077, and it’s not just the bugs! The A.I is outdated especially with the police 👮‍♀️ 👮‍♀️ that randomly appears to shoot you! And the NPCs are dumb as rocks with barely any reactions to your actions! The world building sucks compared to GTA 3-5, Watchdogs, and Red Dead 2!!!

ScootaKuH264d ago

So all of a sudden the base consoles are shit and it's not the developer's shit optimisation?

There may be a decent game underneath but all versions have issues. It shouldn't have been released in the state it was in so it absolutely deserves to be on the list

CYALTR264d ago

If you are going to release a game, it should work on the consoles it is released on. Everyone should understand that it's not going to run the same on an next gen or high end console as it runs on base, but it should at least be playable, and it is not for many.

F&F Crossroads & PC3 were dumped on gamers by Codemasters knowing they were going to get taken over by Take Two or EA. It was a last ditch attempt to get rid of those steaming piles of dogs mess.

Terry_B265d ago (Edited 265d ago )

Cyberpunk does not belong in this list. After seeing the many many positive reviews for Tamarin (it has a 72% positive rating on Steam) I also doubt it belongs in a list of disappointing games of the year.

gamer7804264d ago

I could understand how it could be disappointing for those on base consoles but it doesn’t make the game itself bad.

ScootaKuH264d ago

Oh it does. It was released in a broken state. After the sky high hype how can it not be anything but a disappointment? Anyone who's happy with the state the game is currently in is lying

Magog264d ago

Cyberpunk is a bad game folks. No AI and a rushed incomplete story. Graphics are the only thing it has going for it. Difficulty is completely busted as well.
