No the first fallout. Tactics would've been awesome as it has the BoS, which means liberty prime

Oh, my parents did that to me too, they got me SM64DS for Christmas because I'd been saving up for a DS, then pulled a DS out from behind the piano after all the presents were done.

Biggest dissapointments in my memory (not exactly childhood, but rather early adolescence, when I started being more critical of things):
>Oblivion
After Morrowind, it was a massive letdown and generally made me think for the first time more systematically what makes a difference between good and bad game.
>Homeworld 2
Despite playing Homeworld back in 2000, I only got to HW2 around 2008 or so. It was a letdown on every level.
>Fallout 3
Looking back at it, I feel stupid believing after Oblivion that Fallout 3 is going to be good. But at the time, I still thought less about companies and more about individual games and franchises.
>Modern Warfare 2
I genuinely enjoyed MW1. It was not a great game, it was not nearly as good as, say, Vietcong was, but it was a pleasant surprise and genuinely enjoyable piece of pop-culture. I expected MW2 to be more of the same. It was not.

That is pretty much that. Before that, I don't remember any fundamental dissapointments, and after that, I learned to temper my hype.

Is the punchline the fact that fallout 3 (and now 4) exists? Im still triggered.

No I'm pretty sure that qualifies as the conclusion of a tragedy.

I wanted to get Bloody Roar, by my mom wouldn't let me.

Which is probably good, more then likely kept me from being too much of a furfag.
