Gaming became an escape for plenty of gamers during the last – but despite offering a diversion from the daily dreariness of lockdown, it hasn’t stopped people online voicing their frustration and angers about certain games on social media.
From severs being down, to gameplay being slow or generally feeling hard done by, a new report from Ebuyer reveals the top 15 games that have received the most negative energy online over the last year.
By running social listening tools across the past year, Ebuyer have managed to uncover the biggest culprits behind controllers flying across the room and people screaming out ‘HOW’ and ‘WHY’ at the screen.
Which games receive the most negative energy?
It’s no surprise to see some of the usual suspects, with FIFA and Super Mario making the list – but taking the top spot, and wearing the crown, is Grand Theft Auto V. Despite having the freedom to rush around the map and literally do anything you fancy, the game has received over 26,000 negative posts over the last year… probably due to those unbearable loading times.
Predictably, also sitting high up on the list is Fortnite. Over the last few years this game has started to feel impossible, thanks to people building 90s faster than you can blink and it always feeling like your shots aren’t hitting. It’s really no shock the game has received nearly 25,000 negative posts this last year.
The top 15 games can be seen below:
|Position||Game||Number of negative posts on social media|
|1||Grand Theft Auto V||26,636|
|5||Animal Crossings: New Horizons||9,948|
|6||The Last of Us||7,901|
|9||Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War||1,880|
|10||Call of Duty: Modern Warfare||1,279|
|11||Assassins Creed Valhalla||476|
|13||Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege||169|
