Yeah, I know, it's a WatchMojo Top 10 list, and you should take what you see with a grain of salt. But there were some pretty nasty screw-ups in the industry this year. This video covers Telltale's closure, in addition to other bombs like Fallout 76, Agony, Far Cry 5's DLC and Metal Gear Survive, in addition to a couple of PUBG/Fortnite clones. Surprisingly, it doesn't show anything from certain other games that I, personally would've included: We Happy Few, which was the epitome of promise and potential being utterly wasted by a buggy, nearly unplayable release; Hunt Down the Freeman, which has pretty much destroyed any remaining goodwill people have toward the Half-Life series; Super Seducer: How to Talk to Girls, which is exactly as unintentionally hilarious as its title would have you believe; Seed of the Dead, which combines the most boring first-person zombie shooter ever made with an erotic dating simulator; and perhaps worst of all, the announcement for Command & Conquer: Rivals, with a reveal trailer on YouTube that has one of the most one-sided dislike bars I've ever seen--3.3k likes versus 65k dislikes (for reference, not even YouTube Rewind 2018 has a dislike bar that severe).

Anyone have any other massive video game fails of 2018 they want to share? Don't worry, there's a lot to pick from.
I have no mouth, and I must scream.
