Top 10 Worst Video Game Launches of All Time
5. Mass Effect Andromeda (2017)
Back in March 2017, some Mass Effect fans were shocked when a Bioware general manager said that Mass Effect Andromeda would be “softcore space porn
”. This did not turn out to be the case in the end, although many players found the romances were not so great in the final game due to the plethora of glitches and bugs Mass Effect Andromeda shipped with. Worse of all were the wonky facial animations, which made conversations in the game look comical at times.
This also had some of the worst writing in a Bioware game to date, making the proceedings feel like a cheap space soap opera at time. But it’s clear that the crashes and performance issues at launch left many disgruntled, as this was a game that simply was not ready for release. Bioware made amends in the coming months with a series of patches which even added new romance options for protagonist Ryder, even though it’s clear that Andromeda’s poor launch may have sadly damaged Mass Effect’s reputation for some time to come.
