The best-selling game of 2019 has been revealed and – strangely – it’s also one of the worst-rated games on Steam.
At the time of writing, the game has a Steam rating of “Overwhelmingly Negative,” with just 15% of the 3,660 reviews being positive. Yikes.
One Steam user summarises some of the main issues in the game, writing: “Cons: -Can’t shoot with my 3-level scorer with 95 mid rage and 95 three point -Can’t dribble and lose the ball a lot with a slashing playmaker – Badges take my whole life to get one – Can’t pass to save a life -Everyone can out run my 87 speed -I lose my points for getting a 3 star in practice -Can’t skip to me coming in game without it slowing down for a minute then letting me play -None of the builds feel like they matter -microtransactions -Lost my name -Servers.
“Pros: -The community is coming together against this garbage -#fix2k20 -#fireronnie”
Another player simply writes: “I paid 90 dollars for a broken version of 2k19, I could’ve bought 40 cheeseburgers with all that money, but I didn’t.”
How the heck this title – which the community has dubbed “largely broken” – has made it to be the best-selling game of 2019 in the US in anyone’s guess.
According to ComicBook, NBA 2K20 took the top-selling spot, just beating Mortal Kombat 11. The following three biggest sellers are Borderlands 3, Madden NFL 20, and Kingdom Hearts 3.
The game, which launched in September of this year, saw the highest launch month sales for a sports game in the United States, ever. The numbers surpassed NBA 2K20’s predecessor, which was the previous record holder.
