2017 Game of the Year Awards

Worst Release of the Year

Release Date: November 10, 2017
Platforms: PC / PlayStation 4 / XBOX One
Genre: Racing
Developer: Ghost Games
Publisher: Electronic Arts

This award is dedicated to the game with the worst technical launch of the year, focusing primarily on bugs. But this mockery of a game launched in such a poor state that bugs were not even the greatest concern. The bugs were there of course, mostly in various gameplay mechanics, but possibly the worst thing about Need for Speed: Payback is how blatant of a scam it is. Filled to the brim with microtransactions, which EA also tried to pull with Star Wars: Battlefront II this year, far too little car customization and gameplay content in general, this game is an insult to all gamers and all of gaming. Rock Paper Shotgun made a hilarious write up further detailing this travesty here.
