I just remembered E3 from a couple years ago, and remember everyone going crazy about it on these forums.
And wow. Who is to blame for the hype? This was probably one of the worst games of all time, not just because of its own problems, but the nickle and diming by Turtle Rock Studio. FOUR E3 Best of Show awards. Jesus.
Is there a game you have this issue with? No man's Sky is certainly up there, and I'd put my sushi coins on Spore.
