What's worse than buying microtransactions? Other people buying microtransactions.
There are few things more frustrating in recent games than being beaten in a multiplayer match by someone using an unreasonably priced rocket launcher. The sheer, grating knowledge that you could have flattened them in a fair fight is enough to make most players switch off for good.
That, or introduce the controller to the nearest wall.
Whether it's special skins being locked behind a vicious paywall, introducing "time savers" and level skips, or even breaking the in-world economy with premium priced pay-to-win features, these games will stop at nothing to get their greedy, rat-like claws on your cash.
Unfortunately, that greed comes at the cost of quality.
The games on this list went from an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon to digital disasters, with enough controversy to give even the most silver-tongued PR Executive nightmares. If an entertaining experience is sought after, then look elsewhere, these games stand as a lesson in why monetising everything at the cost of gameplay isn't exactly the best idea.
