We've all been there. You're playing a game, and you're enjoying it. Everything's going well, and then the developer announces a new patch. You're initially excited, but when it rolls out, the patch breaks something you liked, or changes the game in a fundamental way. Our community picked these eight games as some of those hardest hit by bad patches and updates.

Special thanks to Vausch for starting the thread!

Terraria
First mentioned by Fallow

The biggest problem with patches in Terraria is the same problem that you encounter in Minecraft and other games that use procedurally generated worlds: Whenever something new gets added, you won't be able to access it in any area in your saved game that's already been generated. That leads to players having to make decisions between continuing to play on a saved world that they've sunk countless hours into, or starting from scratch to get access to the newest additions to the game.
