What games do you think will likely bomb this year

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What games do you think will likely bomb this year

I am currently rooting for The Order 1886.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I say Mario party 10 and Evolve,

what are yours?


I actually preordered Mario Party 10, but I may be one of the few.

 

I suspect Hardline might sell fewer than they'd hoped, but won't be surprised if I'm wrong there. Otherwise... not too sure. People just seem to buy most big titles this day almost as if they feel obligated to.

Wait, I still don't understand thread title. What games I do expect to bomb this year, or what games do I want to watch bomb this year?

You should not read my mind. There are creepy things there.

@OP. By "should", do you mean "will" or "I want to"?



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

SHOULD bomb? Well, no game deserves to bomb normally (there are exceptions like Sonic Boom). Some will bomb, some won't. Now I think the proper question is which games do you BELIEVE will bomb. Personally, I am on the fence for Mairo Party. It is bound to sell over 1m. But will it be a system seller, or will it be another Mario Party 9? If Final Fantasy 15 lets us down like FF13, then it deserves to bomb too. So. Really, you can't decide if a game deserves to bomb until after it is released.

Evolve, Battlefield: Hardline

Wii U + PS4 

Consoles>Mobile

I think Evolve and Battlefield: Hardline are the two most obvious choices to bomb.

You aren't one of the few. It recently got 30k pre-orders this past week and has a total of lke 48k. That's pretty good. I suspect it'll have at least between 120k-150k pre-orders by launch date with lifetime sales in between 1.5m and 2.5m.

Remind me why everyone hates Evolve again.

It's a generic shooter. ( There is nothing wrong with one or two generic shooters a year but sometimes enough is enough )

Others Reasons which will lead it to flop though include that it is horrible advertised.

Evolve is hardly generic...



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

How is it a generic shooter exactly? Name 2 games similar to Evolve.
