>>268602085 Yeah, GW2 was pure shit. I knew it from the start that their shitty promises will backfire, but I was stupid enough to buy the game at retail to check. It came true and since I bought at retail, I couldn't get a refund.
>>268601869 Fucking this. This was the game that made me a jaded piece of shit and woke me up to the shitheap the games industry had turned into. I wanted the continuation of my favourite childhood games, and instead I got this half bake piece of motherfucking garbage
>>268601441 Probably Bioshock: Infinite. I bought the Ultimate Songbird Edition, preordered it on steam as well and bought the season pass because I was so 100% sure that it would be yet another great Bioshock game with a beautiful new setting. Never again.
Company of Heroes 2 I was so hyped for it ever since I heard about it. I even preordered it on steam to get all the cool bonuses. You can't even begin to imagine my disappointment when they cancelled all the important bonuses >Sorry we completely fucked over your preorder. Here's some shitty tf2 hats in recompense
Pokemon Snap. My friend hyped it too much for me. I got it a few days after release and played it as soon as I got home. I played it for 4 hours straight until I finished the game. Unless you want to try and get perfect shots of all the pokemon, the is absolutely zero replayability.
what makes me the most depressed is how hype I was for the game even during the first couple of hours of playing it. Had a fucking blast up until the first dragon fight where I shortly realized that I had already played the entire game and quickly got bored and just stopped playing. I still dont know how the game ends but from what Ive heard its shit
>>268604229 there is one brief moment of hope that the game will become good when you are going through Blackreach but other than that the main story is completely forgettable after the first wyvern fight
>>268603983 Good meme, really dank. I'm fucking tripping memes right now dude. That is some mad fucking Dro, got any more broheim? I never thought I'd get memed on this hard on /v/:videogames. This is the delicate, yet robust quality of meme I'd expect from our friends at [esfoures]:Patrick Bateman.
You're the greatest meme maestro of your'e time, truly inspirational, I bet every single instance in you're life where their are numbers is a time of great repeating integers. When you walk down the sidewalk, you don't skip the cracks, you step on two cracks at the same time, a double, if you will. I never expected such a sublime, exquisite meme, I am truly thankful for the bounty you've gifted me with, thank you.

Prototype 2. It may not have been the biggest disappointment, but it was one of the most crushing to me. Prototype 1, while flawed, had some really great gameplay and even the story seemed like it set up for some serious shit to go down in 2 with Pariah. But instead we get James Heller fighting evil Alex Mercer with an oversimplified upgrade system and a lack of Musclemass or Armor, 2 of the better parts of the last game. That and the motivation behind Mercer's evilness was pants on head retarded
In recent memory the most DISAPPOINTING games where I went in expecting NOTHING and was still let down are a follows:
-Thief -Hitman: Absolution -Tropico 5 -Counter Strike: Global Offensive
As all four of those games come from long lasting franchises which are staples of my video gaming childhood and young-adulthood, it was very very hard for me to see each and everyone become a generic nickel-and-dime-you and dumb-this-the-fuck-down shitfest.
It was a good game no doubt, especially when I got it on pc later with mods but it was so disappointing and underwhelming after the masterpiece that is Fallout 3. I hope Obsdian never taints the fallout name again.
DA was like KOTOR for me, a awesome RPG with a ton of different options and paths that just worked so well. The DLC was kind of hit or miss, but it was gearing up for something awesome. It was also clear that they were working on this some time before the EA deal.
...Then EA happened and forced Bioware to make a watered down ME clone with extremely rushed graphics, copy and paste rooms so bad that it looks like a fan mod of the first game, and one of the most boring follow ups to a game I have ever seen.
I even ignored most people's suggestions and bought it when it was on sale a year or so after launch. Jesus Christ, that was a gigantic mistake.
>Pistol is no longer the skill-defining weapon it used to be >Dogshit dudebro KILLAMANJARO achievements >Newer maps were claustrophobic and not as well made as the older maps >Floaty player controller didn't feel as solid as the older one. >Destructible vehicles were great on paper, but really unfun in execution. >Playing as an elite didn't add anything to the game. >Hijacking vehicles was a terrible idea and made vehicles feel worthless in many cases. >The single-player was a cliffhanger sequel bait bullshit.
>>268606241 I thought 4 was pulling too hard on nostalgia for the older games Maybe I'm just a horrible person, but I didn't shed tears through 4. It was pretty sad, but it wasn't enough to break the dam for me.
>>268605994 1 I don't like how it looks and I find the whole thing to just be boring. When I got it I bought the twin so I had 2 as well. Heard that was even better so once I couldn't take anymore of 1, I tried 2. I could see why people who liked Uncharted would say 2 was better but I find the whole thing boring and just not for me.
Rome 2 Spore Metroid Other M Skyward Sword Twilight Princess Okamiden Devil May Cry 2 Resident Evil 5 Resident Evil 6 Resident Evil Operation Racoon City or whatever it was named Metal Gear Solid 4 MGS Peace Walker Animal Crossing DS Ultima IX Wizardy 8 Civilization V (vanilla, the expantions are awesome as fuck) Too Human Sticker Star The Force Unleashed The Last Story New Little King Story
I've been rused so many times that I still wonder how I manage to get excited for a new game
>>268608323 >But the whole Gameplay, Online mutliplayer, Ending (if you ignore the fucking big boss bullshit), Metal Gear Rex and Final Battle, were some of the best moments in the whole MGS series Yes indeed they were, but again, those things are overshadowed by the bad things in the game
>>268608216 I just wanted grand campaigns with massive armies against some decent AI. The flags were too big. I couldn't tell which unit was which. There was so much brown and red. I just wanted... To be an emperor.
>>268601441 Fable 3 GW 2 Smash 4 kind of. Just picked it up yesterday. What the fuck did they do to the combat? Regular attacks don't flow together like past games. The only character that attacks seem to flow is Little Mac.
>>268608714 There are actually parts of the game that are great, Skytown, the pirate homeworld and the valhalla are good examples, but yeah, MP3 is the weakest entry, it doesn't mean that the game isn't good though
>>268604795 Ugh that game could have easily been a goty if they didn't fuck up so badly. It wa incredibly fun and rewarding, but somehow they made it worse to the point I wasn't sure of they purposely killed it or not. Fuck smite
>>268608918 eh, ill agree with you there. a lot of the powers were borrowed from okami, but the introduction of partners also really kicked it up a notch as well, allowing for more stuff to be done.
of course, it did kind of fall into that whole zelda type nonsense where they're useful for one small portion for the game, and useless the rest, but it was still really neat
and cmon, that end was pretty rad.
i think if they waited a couple years for it to be made on the 3ds it would have been far more successful, as more people would get to know about the game and it'd be a good launch title for the new hardware.
oh well, here's to hoping for the future at least.
the gameplay was there the whole time, the ending was one of the most powerful of all the series with the whole boss fight and snake had a hard life (except you know, that part where big boss turned out to be alive, that fucker)
>>268609535 the ending and the whole time travel aspect was a actually really nice to me, but in the end it just felt like a rehash of Okami instead of a sequel, I agree that they should have waited for the 3DS, or they should have made a full fledge wii title.
At least it was miles better than the Zelda DS games, man those were shit in every aspect
Gen 7 slowly turned me from an excited young gamer into a jaded, betrayed realist who still holds out a glimmer of hope for this new gen 8
Mass Effect? Turned to shit after the first game Assassin's Creed? Story jumped off a cliff in 2, everything else jumped off a cliff in Brotherhood Capcom? In absolute shambles Even my beloved obscure Japanese series like Ace Combat, Armored Core, and Front Mission all irredeemably turned to garbage (at least we got one good Armored Core game out of gen 7, 4a). And let's not even get started on the Lightning saga.
>>268610894 It was so broken unfinished shit when it came out, it was unplayable. They have patched it non-stop since release and finally after a fucking year, it's playable. Although all my intrest towards it is allready gone.
Nope. Half the new mechanics don't work and the AI is still crap. You know those seiges where you'd distract the enemy while your ninjas scaled walls in stealth and unlock back gates for a hidden unit ambush? That's gone. All interesting siege mechanics are gone. Every last one is a meatgrinder at a chokepoint. Graphics are shit and absolutely inexcuseable going even from Shogun 2's mediocre visuals. To top it all off, the game is quite clearly just a vehicle for dlc. Like, shamefully so.
>>268601441 Achron Such a fucking amazing concept, and they did it well, but they just fucked up the actual RTS part of the game so badly that it's unplayable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMleXiAoLro
>Hey Shepherd, remember that giant reaper that blew up half the Citadel? Well, everybody thinks it never happened >WE'RE NOT BAD GUYS! >spoilers: they're bad guys >Protheans retconned to be Jamaican lobster people instead of the long-limbed humanoids that they were intended to be in Karshpyn's script >final boss is that one skeleton from Contra 3
I don't know what to think anymore. At least the characters in ME2 weren't as boring as the ones in ME1, but that's the only improvement I can think of.
>1. Duke Nukem Forever I waited 13 years for it. Posted regularly on the 3D Realms forums, too >2. Pokemon Crystal I was young and naive, so I expected a whole new game. Instead, I just got Pokemon Silver+ >3. Destiny We all know why by now.
>>268612201 >like every rpg ever made? But it was blatant as fuck and the other parts of the game were also bad. >lol, you said ass, that was teh funneh I literally just didn't want to type out Assassin's.
>>268612054 >The game itself was good Only after the v. 2013 patch. It was boring as fuck before, consisting of pressuring oponent until you hit one solid combo and running away for the other 80 seconds while the oponent had no options to screw you over,
The patch made the game decent, but by that time everyone already felt like a dirty whore for buying that shit.
>>268601686 Pretty much this, skyrim basically turned me into a tired gamer from all te disapointment and nv made me want another fallout game with the improvements that nv made but wasnt shit over all

I'd also say Amnesia, not because it was bad, but because I bought it without playing the demo. It gave me motion sickness really bad after 10 minutes of playing. I was really disappointed I couldn't play it.
>>268612937 >it's not like they shoved it in your face all the way through the game Literally the entire plot of the game is people have brutally murdered elves for no real reason other than they are different.
>Racism like in american history Racism and slavery in the USA is some of the tamest in history.
>>268613012 >Too Human Oh god, the memories. That game crushed my spirit, it turned me into a grown up man as soon as it was released. I realized there is no hope for the world, everything is always going to be shit, and no, I can never be happy.
>Animal Crossing: New Leaf I played the shit out of Wild World in middle school, and I'd thought it was long enough since I'd played AC that it'd feel fresh again. It ended up feeling monotonous after ~10 hours.
>FE Awakening I really don't like that reclassing/pair up are both available and encouraged. The story also was a letdown. I was hoping for it to escalate after Ch. 13, but it dropped the ball instead.
Mine was Sonic the Hedgehog 4. Played like shit. Music was shit. Levels were shit. None of the magic of the genesis trifecta. Sega just needs make a 16 bit sonic again. Retro has been in for fucking ever why haven't they realized this.
>>268602939 Reach's story was pretty good. I absolutely the art style. Elites and Spartans played and looked totally different from each other. Other than that though the gameplay did suck. A lot. I think blook ruined it. Also it was way too slow and I didn't like the direction which armor abilities took the game. Armor abilities+sprinting+reticle bloom=bad fucking time
>All those people saying Bioshock Infinite was their biggest disappointment Really? You thought it was going to be good after all the bullshit "We want the CoD audience" focus testing? I can't feel sorry for you. At least the studio bit the dust, so there's something to be happy about.
>>268601784 Thread should have ended here. Spore is objectively the most dissappointing game of all time when you compare the original plans to the final product.
Fable is a runner-up for that classic Molyneux fuckery. Fable is saved by being a great game in it's own right, albeit one that is very different than originally planned and promised. Spore had no such luck.
People who are confused: this is the most DISAPPOINTING GAME of all time, not the worst game of all time. Stop pointing out like >Mass Effect sequels >Guild wars sequel >Ass creed sequels >Fable Sequels
EVERYBODY knew these games were garbage, as their first installment was garbage. Stop posting these.
Instead, shit like >Total war >Spore >Resident Evil 5 THAT'S the shit. That's the shit that belongs in my thread.
Guild Wars 2. I was so damned excited to make a Charr. Thought they were total badasses in GW1, and they were shaping up to be badasses in GW2.
Then I learn that they are just a little side thing that is mostly forgotten as far as the story goes. That all focus ever will be on the mary sue tree people.
And of course, the game is more unbalanced thas it was at release. And after two years, not only have they added no significant content, but haven't even added new skills, save for one heal per class that no one uses.
All the new weapons are cash shop All the armors are cash shop All the anything is cash shop And they added a god damned gear treadmill Still no end game PvP is still terrible Still no guild halls
>>268614080 loved* lol indeed ok I laughed at that myself >Reach's story was pretty good Ok by "pretty good" I mean it was passable. 7.5/10. an infinite improvement over the fucking abomination that was halo 4's "story". Being a part of a team at least tried to inject emotion into the game
Fable 2 and 3 Didn't pay attention to it until it came out and loved the first one Allowed myself to get hyped for 2 and it was awful Somehow didn't learn my lesson and let myself be disappointed by 3 (though it was better than 2 I guess). Didn't touch 4 because it looked retarded and trying not to pay attention to the new one
>Literally 2 our less hours of gameplay >Yoda and Boba Fett are teased in the marketing >Yoda appears for 10 seconds in a cutscene >Boba Fett appears for even less >Story is pants on head retarded and just repeats the same "you might be a clone, who knows, does it matter anyway" idea for said 2 hours >Game just sort of ends at what should have been an act break
I haven't played the first one, but I read some good things about the whole franchise, so I gave it a try. Controls were very clunky. Kind of reminded me of GTA a bit when walking around. Story wasn't particularly engaging. Characters weren't very relatable or likable. Pre-rendered scenes were decent to look at, but actual gameplay wasn't all that impressive visually.
Witcher 3 is supposed to be true "open world", so I may give that a try, but I'm not buying unless it's good.
In any case, before CoD became a shitty series, I was actually excited for Modern Warfare 2. I had sincerely enjoyed CoD 4 and wanted more. What I got was a shitty single player and a shitty multi-player with DLC.
>>268614987 >quite liked ME1 :^) >GW was by all accounts a very good PVP MMO According to who? GW was the MMO for kiddies who's parents wouldn't pay the monthly subscription for WoW. That's the ONLY purpose it served. As a CONTAINMENT game.
Go ahead, lie and tell me you had other reasons beyond being unable to play WoW.
However, I was so disappointed by Earthworm Jim 3D that I returned it to my local game store during the first night of my rental. I paid extra to exchange it for another game, which was godly Harvest Moon 64, even though I'd rented that before.
>>268615029 Skyrim was good, just not as good as oblivion. The dumbed down the character creation/skills WAY to much. The story was ok though, not great, but ok. Ive played through skyrim 3 times and feel like ive done pretty much all there is to do. Ive played through oblivion like 10+ times and i still feel like theres something neat in missed. In skyrim, it just felt like nothing you did mattered. And it pissed me off that you dont actually end up killing aulduin at the end.
While I don't agree with him he is right. If you read Raising the Bar, it shows a shitload of great ideas, locations, and characters that they just sort of cut for one reason or another.
>Cut the Hyra monster shown in early trailer and previews >Cut a combine "Janitor" who's job was to carry a flamethrower and get rid of bodies >Combine tanks were originally pilotable >Originally a lot more variety in the combine >City 17 was going to have a much more cyberpunk vibe to it >Manhack arcades where citizens would control manhacks
I think that HL2 is great, and it may just be selection bias for the book, but the section about HL1 seems to point towards the final game being the best of everything they came up with regardless while HL2 had a ton of awesome ideas that never got beyond prototyping.
Playing through DOOM 3 BFG as we speak, and boy, is it assy. I can't even imagine how monotonous this game was with the original flashlight mechanics. I guess it would basically be like Mace Griffon: Bounty Hunter but that's still likely a far better game.
>>268614670 > awakes in lab not knowing where he is >told he is a clone, has awesome psychic powers >discovers he will be abused, uses his powers to blow up lab and escape >goes on quest to find his purpose
>>268616386 >Me3 >fine >extended cut Throw yourself off a bridge you fucking moron. There's no way in the world you can be both a fan of the series and a fan of ME3, let alone being a fan of ME3 and having an even average IQ.
>>268616582 Mass Effect 3 is a zombie game. Shirtless apes run at you and shoot peas for twenty hours. Nobody uses biotics or tech against you. There is absolutely no gameplay outside the admittedly addictive MP. But what a shame, its mainly addictive because it uses design elements lifted from video lottery terminals so you get hosed for shekels.
>>268614670 There was one redeeming factor though. Costumes, especially since they stayed on in cutscenes. Now you can have an actual account of Admiral Ackbar becoming a Sith Lord and getting killed by edgelord the clone
>>268601441 probably dark souls 2. I rode the hype train so hard I sold my copies of dark souls 1, metal gear rising, red dead redemption and maybe 1 or 2 others. To my dismay everything but the gameplay was worse and I even started to cry a little bit, cause before that I treated the souls games like a gift from the gods and the fact that it seemed way more high budget and they lied about the better level design ( being able to get halfway through the game immediately if you were brave enough ) and the grafix and the torch thing... Now I'm saving up to get all those games back. I still hate myself.
>>268616742 Oh you know what, you'll be even madder after this: ME3>ME2>ME1 but cry to me more about how gaming is being ruined by games with anything higher than a 1 after it. >muh exploration/shity upgrade system is gone nah, you space yourself
>>268617210 Nah its cool. I realize you don't like narrative or characterization. I understand some people just need to down some NyQuil and ignore the crying baby, the bills on the table, and the woman who slams the door every time she goes to "hang out with her friends." I get it. ME3 took the pain away fro you. It kept you out of that moment. You loved the codex, even with the newly added inconsistency. The plot was gold. Bosses were excellent. Even the final boss battle which was cut during the final 48 hours of development. Welcome change! Too videogamey! Just slam on narrative mode and pour yourself some NyQuil buddy.
>>268617669 >you in charge of talking shit about a game you didn't play and not looking like a joke this weak ass argument that is entirely false. I don't even think me3 haters can think for themselves at this point
>go to midnight release with brother >get two copies for me and him >can't play till 6 am because of that error code >finally get to play >think it's great for a little while >after about a week I realize it's kind of shitty and not nearly as fun as Diablo II >play on and off for another week or so >realize the game is even more shitty >read people's opinions online and they feel the same way, explaining how and why it's bad >reinforces my feelings >never play the game again
>>268618467 >I remember the previews of it's development where they promised that you basically lived from start to finish as this amazing character that could effect every part of the game you interacted with
Well that's just Peter Molyneux discussing shit casually over breakfast.
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of a New World. Shitty story, shitty characters, and shitty voice acting aside, the actual game was so devoid of content that it was obvious they didn't come close to finishing it.
Fuuuuuck man. X3:TC ended up being a game that took me so long to get into, but I was really into it when I finally got there. Rebirth looked and sounded great, then I got a shiny looking, broken turd...
They're coming out with a major update, 3.0, in December and it's got a free Xpack for people who've already bought it. I'm likely going to go back and try it, since based on the preview videos they look/sound rather impressive, and I doubt they could really have made the game any worse.
>>268602281 not realizing all the bioshocks where the definition of bait and switch. >put together an incredible 30 minute to one hour long demo >release it >hype goes crazy levels >play it >it's absolute garbage, powers suck, guns suck, bullet sponges everywhere yeah I never got the reason why people like these games.
-people who don't know what they are talking about. (girls, children) -people who like to pretend they are the voice of reason. (girls, children) -people who are opposed to negativity and criticism. (girls, children) -bioware employees. (faggots)
This is coming from someone who spent probably $300 on the MP alone.
Crackdown 2. Holy Christ, what a fucking train wreak that was. Not only did it remove the things that made the game feel like a real progression of a superhero/cop, it took out the gang structure and replaced it with shitty zombies. Also, it was the same exact city with some buildings blown up. Fuck that game forever.
>>268616341 The only reason why it's popular is because it's one of the most influential games every made, at least as far as game design is concerned. Really bumped MODing up and was the first game to use scripted events.
>>268618528 One of the best shooters for the previous gen, IMO.
I played it pretty heavily with a friend of mine on Xbox when it first came out, and there were some tense battles - and lots of possible ways to play (loved being able to TP through floors and whatnot)
-people who don't know what they are talking about. (girls, children) -people who like to pretend they are the voice of reason. (girls, children) -people who enjoy to negativity and criticism. (edgelords, children) -bioware competitor employees
I mean, damn that was easy, try a little harder next time (though you probably can't judging from the usual intelligence level of me3 haters). I'll ask you for a legit complaint, then you can cry to me about what translates to you not understanding the story, or giving a damn about petty shit like a woman would. It's how it goes every time.
>>268620631 I've had this conversation many times before. You pretend you have but your reading comprehension is obviously quite bad so I won't bother re-typing what's wrong with the game. There are too many bad memories, too many bungled plot points, too many issues, from the Elcor Homeworld, to Legion, to Samara. There's no point explaining it to you because you have a dog in this race, and I can't give a fuck about your situation.
The old ones were large open levels that you could explore at your own pace, checking every nook and cranny in any order you wanted
The new one has extremely linear levels and a lot of sections where you're locked out of being able to backtrack so if you miss something then it's gone for good. It also has forced chase sequences where the old games never forced you out of stealth.
The also scrapped all the pretty cool story, lore and cinematics.
>>268621765 Get fucked, if you think that you never played the old ones.
>>268621765 >old thief model in 2014 would be fucking horrible. God forbid we get something refreshing in these trying times. We need instant gratification 20+ xp for headshots in a game about stealing shit without leaving any traces
>>268602281 I kept expecting 'Lizbeth to use her powers and coordinate with me like she did in the trailers. The story turned to mush as soon as you start dimension hopping, capped off by a truly terrible ending.
It sucks cause i also got golden and in golden there's a thing that lets you see the concept ideas and art and they look amazing compared to the vanilla game, but they got scraped because "Mu-Mu-Muh Waifus" and "Muh Yens". Shit sucks yo.
>>268601441 Amnesia a machine for pigs was one of the most disappointing games in recent memory. Even though it was such a let down, I played all the way through it because it was only around 2 hours long. I know /v/ warned me about the Chink Room but I still bought it
