ITT: We talk about our biggest disappointments of the Year so far

Forums - Gaming Discussion - ITT: We talk about our biggest disappointments of the Year so far

Eh I haven't been very disappointed this year but I guess I will say Dragon Age 2. It took a step back in my eyes, but it was still a good game.

Time for some different ideas.

Brink - Parkour-infused shooter looked promising, then ended up being poor to mediocre thanks to a hollow campaign and lag-ridden online.

Bulletstorm - This game looked like brainless fun. But it ended up being just brainless.

Crysis 2 - Wasn't this game supposed to be the tits? It wasn't.

Just games in general.

While there have been some good games this year, I think the overall quality has gone down. I just have not had as much fun this year as usual.

- Killzone 3
- Conduit 2
- Battlefield 3

Dragon Age 2. First was so awesome, then then they dumb it down and the gameplay became shit.

iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)

As much as I hate saying this, so far it has been Uncharted 3.

I'm going to have to agree with this, it was an amazing game, it just didn't blow Uncharted 2 out of the water like I expected it to, it let me down in a lot of ways.

I've got nothing else to list really, haven't played much this year.

i dont see how yall can be disappointed in it.. yeah it didnt blow uncharted 2 out of the way but uncharted 2 won goty and alot of other awards.. its gonna be hard to beat that plus when uncharted 2 had hardly any flaws but minor ones maybe.. i dont understand it. i loved it

Probably Crysis 2 if we are only talking about disappointing games however if we are talking about just gaming in general it would be that ME2 was delayed until next year.

3DS, anyone?

Dragon Age II, although I did finish it twice I found it a let down compared to the first one, although some aspects such as combat I've enjoyed more - the same scenery over and over again has totally killed the game for me. All shit goes down in the same basement and cliffside..

I forgot about that game, must have mentally surpressed it :/ I did 2 playthroughs too which only highlighted further how illogical certain turns of events were to get the story back on the same track. That game quickly turned into equal loading / playing time, walk 10 sec, load 10 sec, repeat. The worst part for me: the highlight of the first game, exploring the deep roads, was reduced to one shitty re-used corridor.

Also, it hurts to say this but, Uncharted 3 is a little disappointing. I beat it this afternoon and the whole time I was playing the SP, I was waiting for the big WTF moment/scene that would be on par or exceed the moments from Uncharted 2. Alas, they never really came. I mean it did have some crazy moments, but I was expecting more. Plus, they don't have bonus tweaks, so I completely wasted my time looking for those treasures.
