Wait "Shenmue 3" and "Crackdown 3" are AAA tier?

Should they even be on this list? more like AA?

I feel like there may be high expectations on Shenmue III, combined with how it's developed by an indie studio.

I can see BO4 being more hated than Infinite Warfare if the rumors are true. But not disappointing, The zombies mode being made by Treyarch again will most likely save the game from mass disappointment.

Crackdown 3 looks like it is going to be another Crackdown game, but better since it is newer and more polished, so I don't see how people might find it disappointing, could be just because it is an Xbox title and majority of people here are Sony leaning.
Sea of Thieves wasn't really a disappointment, it isn't even done yet, give it ten more years. The game was delivered as advertised, it wasn't overhyped and lied about like No Mans Sky, so they can't be compared in any way shape or form.



I guess it is not AAA, but I am worried that the final season of the Walking Dead will turn out to be a disappointment.

All negativity is coming from people not liking some games for one reason or another. Picking one reason people dislike games and declare that reason as stupid is the same as saying you never should criticize games, because all needed is to stay away. You may not share the reason for some disliking a game you like, but that is because people are different. All you can do is say: you may dislike it for that very reason, but I disagree, as I feel differently. That's OK.

There is a meaningful difference between "I don't like that kind of game" and "I don't like that kind of game and they need to stop making them."  Perhaps it's the same thing to you but I do not believe that.  You can dislike something without aggressively attacking it at every turn.  

Disliking a genre shouldn't  stop someone from critiquing a game in that genre ,but it should come with the critic being open about their dislike and they should ask themselves if they can honestly review the game based on the genre/game style it inhabits and judge it against it's peers in a fair manner , the trouble is knowing exactly what your game related biases are and how they impact your critique can be hard enough let alone confronting them.

I may criticise  the game for having overly convoluted controller inputs to just open a door, now the tricky bit, is this me picking faults with a genre I don't like or a reasonable criticism that relates to games in general, valid concerns can be swept away as bias and bashing can be seen as deserved criticism that is the conundrum.

Is anyone really expecting Shenmue to be good? From the games in the list, it's the only one with potential to be a huge disaster.
