Most DISSAPOINTING Nintendo games?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Most DISSAPOINTING Nintendo games?

Quick reminder, dissapointing does NOT mean BAD. NONE of these games are bad. To me these games just didn't live up to the immense hype and prestige they carried before release. Some are definitely better than others, some are even GOTY. They're all good from a technical standpoints but the HUGE fan inside me expected much better.

Quick example: The Force Awakens is entertaining as a stand alone movie so it's good but to me as a SW fan it was a dissapointing mess and i don't want to watch it ever again.

Feel free to dissagree and share your thoughts! 

Fire Emblem: Fates

Donkey Kong Country 3

Star Fox Adventures

Metroid Prime 2

Pokemon Colosseum

Super Paper Mario

Super Mario Sunshine

Metroid: Other M

Super Smash Bros: Brawl

Zelda: Twilight Princess



Around the Network

Wind Waker

Majora's Mask

Mario Sunshine

Starfox Adventures

Starfox Zero

Metroid Other M

All are not only disappointing but also legitimately bad games

Metroid: Other M is absolutely an awful game.
Star Fox Adventures is absolutely a bad game.
Metroid Prime 2 is absolutely an incredible game.

So, I'm instantly compelled to not even make a list of my own because yours is so jarring - in fact the only game there, at least from the ones I've played I'd agree was disappointing is Twilight Princess, and even then that was a great one.

You are not only disappointing but also a legitimately bad person.



Fire Emblem: Awakening, Mario Paper: Sticker Star, Super Mario 3D World and Animal Crossing: Let's go to the City come to mind.



Around the Network

Starfox Zero
Every pokémon game since B&W 2
MK7
NSMB2
Every Mario party since the 8

 

Disappointing in the sense of they were good franchises before or had good installments before but those ones suck.

Like I said some of these games are better than others but they aren't bad imo. TP is indeed not bad but to me it's just a wannabe OoT and MM clone and i did enjoy the game, but for being the most hyped Nintendo game of all time (along with SMB3) I sure felt let down as a huge Zelda fan. Same goes for the other games.

Game and Wario
Star Fox Zero

Easy home runs but Nintendo shit the bed on these two. And for the record, I LOVE Star Fox Adventures.

I remember lots of Zelda fans being dissapointed in MM when it released and only strengthened OoT's reputation as GOAT.

Wind Waker was also despised for its kid graphics. I love them both!

Yeah, to each their own. Hey, more power to ya, that 2 more games you can enjoy but I can't.

Coming after the amazing Ocarina I personally felt both dropped the ball, Majora cos the 3 day system was gimmicky and annoying, WW because the sailing was so goddamn boring and the art style retarded. IMHO of course.
