Remember Evolve? Disappointments general talk

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Remember Evolve? Disappointments general talk

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.

I actually bought it full price, and the funny thing? I actually really liked it :D



Predicted 15+ million lifetime-sales for God of War:

There was really that much hype for it? I really don't remember there being all that much interest for it to be honest.



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

The Borderlands people making Battleborn and citing all their resources going into it and felt like within weeks after launch no one cared about it.



Just Cause 3 was a huge letdown for me after the, IMO, sublime excellence of Just Cause 2. The overall hype wasn't out of control or anything, but my expectations were high.

I was let down by DKC: TF at first, because it didn't feel at all like DKC1 or 2 to me.

Regardign Evolve: Apparently it wasn't a pure shit show. I wouldn't know given I haven't played it, but it apparently had some fans.

Comment from the article on Kotaku (in response to someone saying it was a pared down Left 4 Dead):
http://kotaku.com/evolves-creators-are-no-longer-working-on-the-game-1788214917

"It was not a pared down version of L4D. In fact, it was much more complex with a long learning curve. Unfortunately they put the cart a bit too far ahead of the horse, and was looking ahead to more paid content without properly supporting the base game first. The frustrating part of Evolve isn’t that it was a bad game, because it really wasn’t. The frustrating part is that it had a ton of potential but was left to die in infancy before it was fully realized."

As for me, I'd say Spore, too. Peter Molyneux hyped up his ambitions for that game waaaay too much.



The BuShA owns all!

Hmm, there haven't really been games I've been disappointed with. The games I tend to like and buy turn out to be good, or great games. The few games I bought that were, were the few I didn't have interest, but still tried due to hype from the general community, or to test out a game. These are very rare for me though.

I guess I was dissapointed by MGS V.It was still a good game, I felt it was lackluster in many departments, such as story, music, lack of bases to sneak inside and so on



Never cared for it.
