Here Are The Worst Games Of 2021, According To Metacritic

There’s something about the end of year lists that goes so well in video games. So, here are the worst games of 2021 according to Metacritic.

Metacritic is one of the go-to aggregate websites to get a general feel as to whether a video game is worth your time or not. For better or worse, it gathers multiple review scores from critics and fans, resulting in an overall representative score.

For example, according to Metacritic, the top five video games of all time are The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time – 99, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 – 98, Grand Theft Auto IV – 98, SoulCalibur – 98, and Super Mario Galaxy – 97.

So, what are the worst video games of 2021, I hear you ask? As reported by Pure Xbox, they are as followed:

  1. eFootball 2022 – 25 (PC)
  2. Balan Wonderworld – 36 (Nintendo Switch)
  3. Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthbound – 42 (PS4)
  4. Taxi Chaos – 42 (PS4)
  5. Of Bird and Cage – 44 (PC)
  6. GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition – 47 (Nintendo Switch)
  7. I Saw Black Clouds – 48 (PS4)
  8. Arkham Horror: Mother’s Embrace 48 (PC)
  9. Demon Skin – 48 (PC)
  10. Necromunda: Hired Gun 49 (PS4)

Out of the top 10 worst games according to Metacritic, thankfully I have only played two of them. The worst is eFootball 2022. Coming from someone that has played every PES game for many years, this is the first time I’ve had no intention of going back.
