The year 2016 is the year where some of the best video games have been released. However, it is also common to have some failures. Here is our list of the 5 biggest video game fails in 2016. Please take note that it is not about the whole game as a failure but some elements of it are a bit off.

Assassin's Creed 2

No one would have missed what happened to Assassin's Creed 2's supposed to be remastered version. As everyone knows, a remastered version is supposed to give the game an enhanced and much better look. However, what happened to the game is the other way around. A non-playable character in the background looked scary with his bug-like eye staring at you from the screen.

Final Fantasy XV

No, it's not about Chapter 13 although a lot will say this is what made FFXV one of the worst games in 2016. Rather, it is about the not so obvious product placement of Nissin's - from the van to the dialogues making it look like a giant ad for Nissin's cup noodles. Check out how Gladiolus rave about it in the game.

Battlefield 1

Don't misunderstand us but Battlefield 1 is one of the best games in 2016. However, their attempt to advertise the game on Twitter was somewhat an example of what bad marketing on the platform is. Who would forget the hashtag #JustWWIThings and the caption, "When you're too hot for the club"? Many criticized EA for that and they immediately took it off.

No Man's Sky

No Man's Sky is good but it did not leave up to the hype created for it. After the game was released, the developer seemed quiet after that which ired a lot of players. Players started demanding for refund and a lawsuit was brewing. The developers were trying to fix all that up and they even released an update last month.


Cuphead has not been released yet and that's why it's one of the biggest video game fails in 2016. The developers promised to release it in 2016 but turned out the game has to be delayed and scheduled for release in 2017.
