A new report from Ebuyer reveals which of our favourite games creates the most ‘gaming rage’ – the blind anger gamers experience whilst playing a game.
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.
To calculate the index, Ebuyer used the social listening platform Linkfluence.
The platform scanned social media for negative mentions of the games over the course of a 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.
The top 15 games from first to last can be seen below:
Grand Theft Auto V
Animal Crossings: New Horizons
The Last of Us
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Assassins Creed Valhalla
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
