Predictions: Which game of Q4 2018 will disappoint the most?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Predictions: Which game of Q4 2018 will disappoint the most?

Tagged games:

1. Battlefield V - A disaster waiting to happen.
2. Fallout 76 - Sounds like this one will be something like Elder Scrolls Online.
3. Starlink: Battle for Atlas - There are really people who are getting their hopes up because it has Star Fox.

My pick for the game that is going to do the opposite: Pokémon Let's Go. By the time it releases, most people will have made their peace with what the game is while at the same time knowing that a conventional Pokémon game is only a year away. This is one of those Nintendo games that receive hyperbolic hatred, but will be recognized as good eventually.



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

With gen 8 of Pokemon coming next year, I'm pretty sure most of the bad vibes for Let's Go aren't gonna be that significant in the long run. It'll be seen as a mildly annoying spinoff at worst. It's not gonna ruin the series or anything.  The game has been marketed mostly as a gateway game, and the new gen never comes to a platform this early anyways, so I'm fine with this.

Battlefield V... Oh man, this one is gonna be a bloodbath. Between the lootbox controversies from last year, the shitstorm over the trailer, and the overall EA fatigue lately (seen with FIFA sales), this game has no chance.  It's Infinite Warfare all over again.

I'm also worried about Fallout 76 and RDR2, though I feel those could go either way.  Fallout 76 doesn't seem like it's what the fans want at all, and after seeing the utter wankery that is NBA 2K18, I'm worried that Take Two is gonna destroy RDR2 with microtransactions.

Just looking here and there, it looks like Megaman has been well received, with the fanbase and critics (correct me if I'm wrong), and Super Mario Party has a higher metacritic for a MP game in twenty years.

Add these two to the list, along with Assassins creed and Forza, that have "not dissapointed", at least not from a quality standpoint.

edit: so far it doesn't look like that any big game from the start of September till now has been "dissapointing".



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Probably Fallout 76 and Battlefield V

I am not worried about Pokemon. Switch owners are thirsty of any new Mario, Zelda, Kirby or Pokemon game and they'll buy this one whether it's a good, average or bad game.



I can say now from a quality point of view AC Odyssey is pretty disappointing. Buggy mess



Nothing to see here, move along

Haven't read much of the previews, but is it really that bad?



Fallout, Pokemon and Battlefield sales will disappoint this year.

What kind of experiences did you have? Just curious, since the reviews were very glowing.

Icons on the map has disappeared, audio disappeared, life-bar refused to fill up out of combat, adrenaline-bar froze, important characters are stuck in places i can't get to. I think it so weird that it seems i am the only one that has experienced these things

Hitman 2
