10 Most Expensive Video Games Ever Made


10. Deadpool, 2013: $102,100,246 (inflation
adjusted) The game sees Marvel’s Deadpool kidnap game
designers & force them to make a video game about himself.
Deadpool got mixed reviews – it contains lots of fart jokes. 9. Halo MMO, 2007: $103,243,337 (inflation
adjusted) Codenamed ‘Project Titan’, this game didn’t
even make it to the shelves & was scrapped after 3 years.
It was Microsoft’s expensive attempt to compete with World of Warcraft. 8. Max Payne 3, 2012: $108,776,623 (inflation
adjusted) The 19th best-selling game of 2012 sold 3.61
million copies worldwide. Games developer Rockstar held a Twitter casting
call to feature gamers as playable characters in the multiplayer version. 7. Red Dead Redemption, 2010: $109,078,902.11
(inflation adjusted) 12.13 million copies have been bought worldwide,
outselling Tomb Raider. It has an achievement which can only be unlocked
by throwing a girl onto railroad tracks towards an oncoming train. 6. Too Human, 2008: $110,473,147 (inflation
adjusted) Despite taking 10 years to develop, it only
sold 760,000 copies. ‘Too Human’ was originally planned for
release on PS1 in 1999, but then moved to GameCube… & then finally Xbox in 2005. 5. Star Wars: The Old Republic, 2011: $211,481,334
(inflation adjusted) Set over 3,000 years before the films, it’s
about a war between the Sith Empire & Galactic Republic.
The game’s script is huge & all 2.5 million words of dialogue were recorded. 4. Final Fantasy VII, 1997: $214,481,334 (inflation
adjusted) The second-best selling PS1 game of all time
sold 9.8 million copies. ‘Final Fantasy’ is so named because the
first game should have been the last ever game made by developers Square Enix. 3. Grand Theft Auto V, 2013: $275,568,302
(inflation adjusted) Broke 6 new world records, including fastest
entertainment property, to gross $1 billion. The game is banned in Thailand after an 18-year-old
killed a taxi driver in GTA-style back in 2008. 2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, 2009: $277,168,973.18
(inflation adjusted) Production for the actual game cost just $50
million – but $200m was spent on marketing & distribution.
Fortunately in the first 5 days of its release, it made over $500 million. 1. Destiny, Sept 2014: $500,000,000 It cost $200 million more than the most expensive
movie production, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End’.
5 years before release, developers Bungie slipped a ‘Destiny Awaits’ Easter egg
into ‘Halo 3’.

    The fact that most of the money spent on making CoD: MW was for marketing does not surprise me, the games themselves are mediocre at best and they just advertise the shit out of them to make the extra $, while pumping them out every 12 months.
