As the Holiday season slowly approaches the end of 2021, many gamers busily wade through a sea of hot video game releases and try to avoid the worst games among them.

Naturally, there were some games released this year that were highly anticipated, but ultimately failed to capture the hearts of gamers around the world. In fact, some of them have already made it on the list for Most Disappointing Video Games in 2021. So it shouldn’t be surprising that they also made the worst games list this year.

1

‘Popeye’ (Switch)

This list starts with what is by far the strangest title to be allowed on a marketplace: "Popeye." Starring the titular sailor from classic Saturday morning cartoons, this lazily put-together 3D remake to a classic arcade game lacked almost no soul when it was released. Subpar graphics, boringly designed levels, and highly repetitive music make this game feel even less than the cheap cash-in it was meant to be. Poor Popeye!

‘eFootball 2022’ (PS4/5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, iOS)

Following its controversial rollback on AAA gaming, Konami and its IPs had seen better days. Specifically, ‘Pro Evolution Soccer,’ now rebranded as ‘eFootball,’ is off to a rough start. The latest entry ‘eFootball 2022’ featured the worst in-game rendering to date with inconsistent animation, clipping models, and hilariously wonky ball physiques. The game is also split into two versions: a free-to-play model and a premium one that locks the game’s most sought-after content behind a paywall.
