10 PS3, PC and X360 Games That Flopped Miserably

Crackdown 2

Overall Crackdown 2 was too much like its predecessor. The Co-op was only online; while competitive modes aren’t so great. Lacking a good soundtrack the same song is played over and over again at different tempos. Crackdown 2 suffered multiple major setbacks with much of the same game play as of the original. This game simply should not have existed.

All Points Bulletin

Controversy is another name for APB. The game was bombarded with bad reviews overall, but there was more to follow. Just a few months after the game’s launch Realtime Worlds announced that the servers will shut down soon which was then followed by K2 purchasing APB. The game will be launched again for free sometime in 2011. But the question is who will play this?


There was a ton of hype behind Haze and it turned out to be total disaster. The legion of PlayStation 3 fans claimed this will be the next “Halo Killer” after the horrible outing of the original Killzone on the PlayStation 2, but much to their misfortune the game suffered from a terrible story line and artificial intelligence. Not only that, the game also had bland game play and graphics and a really bad lead in Shane Carpenter.


I think Nier had loads of potential but it really was wasted by a lot of shenanigans. Its way longer than it needs to be and there are loads of features that should never have been put in. I think the focus of the game should have been on the visuals and the story being a little more in depth. If they could go back and remake this game with less crap in it and a lot more story development than it might be a successful title.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • S.M

    why isnt Diablo 3 up there?

    • Shubhankar Parijat

      Because it didn’t flop.

    • Mike

      Yes, it flopped.

    • shadowhawk

      It was a terrible game.

  • Julez

    Maybe it is the fact this this artical is dated 16th, Jan. 2011.

    And yes diablo 3 did flop… for the players that is. Of course blizzard made records and sold millions that is only because of the hype and the love of Diablo 2, Diablo 3 is a piece of crap (sure worth messing around in with friends) but all around not what blizzard promised and now they are just spiting in the customers faces and blizzard will pay for it in the long run.

    • torcedor

      diablo 1 and 2 were my favourate games, I was so looking forward to diablo 3 but I am keeping away from it till and if they fix it

  • Bailey

    If this gets updated.. Diablo 3 should be the number one flop of all time 🙂

  • ResidentialEvil

    Some of these games I agree with, but overall a badly written article. Way too amatuer.

  • smapdi

    Wow. Was this article written by a journalist? There are spelling and grammatical errors everywhere.

  • Till

    why the heck isnt RAGE on here?!??
    great potential but fell flat on its face- linear, rushed to beat borderlands. could have been amaizng

  • Pat

    D3 = Biggest flop of gaming… ever.

  • Anon

    Hell Gate London should be there

  • The new Duke Nukem should have been on this list.

  • Mike

    Killzone for ps2 was my third favorite FPS next time TS2 and 3.

  • wr

    Lol @All Points Bullitin (APB) He Said :But the question is who will play this?. in 2011.
    well Don’t you know how much people play this game now

  • DUKE NUKEM FOREVER should be number 1 on this list. That piece of shit was the most hyped sequel since the return of JESUS CHRIST. If not for the fact it sold 370,000 units (not including downloads) in the first month – thus making it profitable – it would be the king of the gaming hall of shame. HOW DID THEY FCK THAT GAME UP?

  • shadowhawk

    You forgot to say the worst game in history. WoW

  • Marz

    I’m really surprised no one has mentioned Sonic ’06 yet.

  • ryan

    fable 3?
