When WoW: Warlords of Draenor released, I was working for a consumer rights TV programme. I ended up sat in the main office, trying again and again to log into my own WoW account, with other people out on shoots filming other players doing the same thing. It was a total shitshow. Going to be interesting to see how BfA does.

Destiny 2 should be on this list

I like giving lots of money to the companies of games I like since I'm rich but EA made me regret giving them so much money for obvious reasons.

Not a single Nintendo game in sight. Why? Quality over quantity, and gameplay over graphics. Call me a Nintendo fanboy blah blah blah, but the truth is the truth. They'll forever remain the father of video games.

Did Ben quit or something? Just wondering.

games that require internet connection is completely stupid.  I was looking forward to THE DIVISION, and even though it could be a single player game it still required the internet and had a free roam map you had to run around until you could find where to continue the story.  Same with Homefront Revolution.  Do game makers really think that making shit needing the internet more really makes the game better?

Skyrim for PS3

all I hear..pc is so much better.  what I see is pc always has glitches, crashes and lag..lol
Teresa hikes (7 months ago)
this is why I never buy day one or new games. I always wait at least a few months, to actually hear the truth about the games. not the paid media reviews and hype. I learned from ME3

Diablo III can still jump in a lake. Even if there is a single player for PC now.

Pretty sure the Title is meant for the video lol meaning it’s not supposed to be that way( so many literal people lol). Some of these games have been fixed( to some degree) but if it takes years to fix is it really worth it lol Unity might be great now, but it’s been about 4 years lol
Paul Archer (7 months ago)
WWE 2K18 is still broken after all this time, they've had a few patches but career mode is still a broken mess.
Rob Ballantine (7 months ago)
The visuals on "crashes" and "freezes" hahahaha
Aaron Seddon (7 months ago)
How you missed Halo Master Chief collection?
David Curry (7 months ago)
I'm sure there's been much more complaints about the Assassins Creed movie.
Andrew Hayford (7 months ago)
I played AC Unity very recently. Seems they mostly fixed the issues it had, at least PC side. Game played fine. I never saw the horrific inverted faces. Games was pretty good. Its a shame it launched so roughly.
Sky (7 months ago)
I don'y think 7 million copies sold is a "botched" launch. They are adding loot boxes back and the game is still going strong.
AlainShadowz (7 months ago)
Even though I love the game, SFV had a pretty bad launch.
alberto sanchez (7 months ago)
Battlefield 4 was nowhere near as bad as a lot of people said. Most of these games were practically unplayable at launch besides the occasional crash or freeze you could still play BF4
Justin Jones (7 months ago)
Seriously Jules should do video games list every time. He's just entertaining.

Andromeda The game is actually pretty good, and they have an amazing Fanbase, yet somehow they managed to fuck it all up with a shit starter and afterwards nobody want to hear it.

Critically acclaim trilogy? That means that corporate propaganda had win over common sense? Something that even this fucking channel had critic rightly about Knight and now dismiss it because you need your nice paychecks? Sorry, but I think that Origins a far much better job than Knight, but of course, I bet that you are willing to put aside the problems of Batman World of Tanks for a nice paycheck from your corporate overlords.

MCC had the WORST launch I have ever experienced. I will never buy another Halo game.
angelix (7 months ago)
I honestly wish you had covered the horrible remastered versions of Bioshock and Bioshock 2 (for PC). -_- THOSE were horrific.
Chillzz Chillzz (7 months ago)
0:37 that is exactly the reason for such botched launches. You do not understand the correlation eh?
Livoynju Edwards (7 months ago)
All this time i had no idea Ben and Peter left time to unsub here.

Dunno what you guys are talking about. My copy of Arkham Knight for PC works just fine now. Check your facts Mr. "Never truly recovered"
arami187 (7 months ago)
Total War Rome II That Launch was a real shit-show and their support page is ignoring players at this point. 18 patches and the game is still broken beyond recognition.

If PUBG isn't number 1...
danny phenton (7 months ago)
Wait, PUBG isn't and wasn't promising 😂😂😂

NFS payback? Upgrades in loot boxes? And it's still happening.

There was an easy fix for Arkham Knight, play it on console where it was designed to be played. All the PC master race BS doesn't magically fix a poor PC port.
Khodexus (7 months ago)
Why does everyone trash talk the D3 auction house like it was some unusable terrible idea? It was actually a really interesting concept with alot of potential. It honestly was a great evolution of the massive trading economy that was built up around D2. The fact that it didn't really click with how the game itself has evolved is not due to any fault in the AH itself. It actually worked quite well for what it was intended to be. It simply created a bit of a disconnect with certain aspects of the gameplay. The decision to remove it had nothing to do with it not working, but instead was done because Blizzard decided it put the emphasis on the wrong aspects of the game.

There's a sexual health centre in Gateshead?
ZeroArmour (7 months ago)
I wish people would cut the NMS devs some slack, it's not their fault. They're clearly dedicated to trying to make the game they promised, but were forced to release the incomplete (being kind here) version by the publisher (you know, the people with the money & power). If all we do when an unfinished game is released is attack the developer, where the decision to do so was the publisher's, then nothing will change.
Wireshock (20 days ago)
Besides, NEXT has SERIOUSLY improved the game, with proper online multiplayer and greatly quality of life, as well as third person, character customisation, freighter fleets and so on. (Not that the game was bad, in my opinion.)
Sakkoliha (7 months ago)
Publishers don't care about the game or day one patches, all they care is does the ingame cash store works on launch.

Some people aren't getting the joke about the wrong title and the botched edit at the end...

I don't know why people thought FF14 would be good. I remember seeing the information before launch. It looked horrid.
Owen Jarrett (7 months ago)
Here’s one on the list, that should have been on. WWE 2K18 on Nintendo Switch
Whitney Asante (7 months ago)
How'd you stop at 8? Battleborn launching in the same month as Overwatch? Street Fighter V forgot Arcade Mode? Titanfall 2 Launches in the midst of Modern Warfare and Battlefield 1 Watchdogs graphical bait and switch? Mighty No 9's everything at the same time during anime fan's prom night? Mortal Kombat X's PC Launch? Marvel vs Capcom’s Roster and Graphics? This list ended too soon.

U forgot pubg on xbox
Brian Willis (7 months ago)
FFXIV. Absolutely. It was horrendous at first launch. They killed it with Realm Reborn. Now amazing!! Totally amazing that they pulled it and completely redid the game. Most respect for Square-Enix for ever more on their accomplishment.

I knew something was wrong with Final Fantasy XIV when I signed up for the PS3 Beta and I got a congratulations email for getting into the Windows PC beta after telling them I had a weak Macbook.
Cameytoe (7 months ago)
I know the subject of the list is focused on games being disappointing, but it's kind of comforting seeing most of these games getting their act together in the end
The Grim Peanut (7 months ago)
Surprised the Division wasn't on this list. But the game has improved over the years I guess.
Gaming the Wolf (7 months ago)
2 things: 1.- Is it weird that I think that halo 2 looks better than halo 5? 2.- I heard that Disney cut contract with EA because of the Battlefront 2 micro-transactions fiasco, is that true?

The master chief collection was basically released in an alpha state
TheFancyUmbreon (7 months ago)
A good while after the launch of Arkham Knight, Rocksteady gave people the entire Arkham series for free if they stuck with them and kept Arkham Knight. So got Asylum GOTY, City Goty, Origins, Knight, and Origins Blackgate
