Which games have most let you down?

Game developers are an ambitious bunch, constantly looking for ways to innovate and advance gameplay. They want to create games that you can interact with in as much depth as real life, games that offer as many possible choices and outcomes as life itself, they want to give players more ways of solving problems than the usual trigger-twitching one. All of which is very admirable, but sometimes their reach exceeds their grasp... (Fallout: New Vegas, Heavy Rain , L.A. Noire, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Totally agree with u jasonhenry.. Me and my online buddy put so many hours into C&C 3 tiberium wars.. Was so so so fun. I was scrin pro he was GDI pro. I did do the Mastermind- mother ship trick a bit but was hilarious when it worked. Both of us got into the top 100 online leader boards ..
When we both got C&C 4 we were so pumped to do it all again, then after playing a few times we both realized it sucked.. Wasn't fun, couldn't build a base 0_o waste of money..

This articles flat out lies
This is what is written about Heavy Rain"

"A game that captures all the thrills of toothbrushing and grocery shopping, adds a few setpieces shamelessly derived from recent movies, demands ten hours of almost comedically mild joystick movements and button pushes, and offers a choice of endings that all have the same key element, scuppering any replay value."

Uh, endings that all have the same key element, "scuppering" replay value? Wha?

Somebody didn't play the game, or else the author would know that every main character can die or be compromised and might not make it to the end, drastically changing the ongoing story as well as the ending.

Main characters can die and the story changes as they are no longer part of that play through.

And it's not just deaths that alter the story as it progresses. Relationships can form between characters changing the story, affecting that particular playthrough.

Lying article, you got caught

I see GribbleGrunger below beat me in pointing out the lies in this bogus article. Well done

It wouldn't make sense to change the killer on choices. The thing I didn't understand was my ending...

I drank the poison to find my son, I didn't end up finding him. At the end of the game I seen Ethan and his son reunite. Now I'm assuming that it wasn't poison, but that was very confusing.

ACtually, it wasn't delayed for 6 months to give Obsidian more time. Development was on hold for six months. I wish people would get their facts straight.

That was the entire development of Alpha Protocol. On/off and when it finally released, SEGA denied Obsidian the ability to release patches.

As for New Vegas, people really annoy me when they bash it. I played both F3 and NV at launch and they were pretty much just as buggy. And Fallout 3 was being developed for 5 years. Obsidian had less than two.

I just think people don't give Obsidian enough credit...
SlapHappyJesus  +   623d ago
It's as mynameisEvil said

Obsidian isn't given enough credit. They do far more with their often limited development times than most any developer would be able to manage, and most issues seen in their games are simply reflective of the restrictions they are put under.

As far as New Vegas goes, all I see is improvement over Fallout 3. Opinions are just that though - opinions.

Alan Wake. It was shown in 2005 and ended up in development for 6 years. Long delayed, PC less, average jog a thon through murky boring forests. PC version came out 2 years later but the premise was long before watered down for 360.

It shouldn't matter how long a game was in development for unless it's being thrown from dev to dev (like DNF was).

This was the first Alan Wake game, so as far as Remedy is concerned, its up to them what's in the final game.

LA Noire was excellent in places. Some of the design was groundbreaking with certain and memorable varied elements that made it more than a shooter.

But I said it was merely "in places". Overall the game provided the classic Naked City experience in a city that was for the most part, lifeless and soulless. The interrogations were erratic, and the cases, though different crimes all managed to feel the same. Anyone that has ever watched movies like The Big Sleep can see the contrast.

Also Cole Phelps could really use an effing sense of humor.

I have all the DLC and the good thing is it completely integrates into the main story. The downside is that when played in such a manner the sheer amount of drudgery is mind numbing.

Another frustrating design flaw is the number of chases where the player can actually intercept the target before a predetermined point is actually quite small. Nothing boggles the mind like catching up to the perpetrator only to see his Edsel emulate the Batmobile, ignite the afterburner, and then conduct a series of maneuvers that defy the laws of physics as well as those of gravity and believability.

As regards the overall article I look up at the main N4G page and see Enslaved in another story and can easily say that manage digital trickery because it was meant for this article whereas Heavy Rain was not. Unlike LA Noire, Heavy Rain's innovation, story, and sheer unique gameplay overwhelm it's less than perfect parts.

@Dboy, to be fair I remember there being an article about Naughty Dog having a second team that worked more on it than their original team members, and that the original team members were secretly working on "The Last of Us", before the world knew that those random scenary pictures that sprouted out of nowhere were actually from Naughty Dog themselves... and by that bein the case, I believe they could have did better than UC2 if the ENTIRE Naught Dog team were focused on it... but "The Last of Us" looks so promising :)

If we're just talking this gen...

1. Dead Island
2. Brink
3. Assassin's Creed
4. Rage
5. LA Noire

3,4, and 5 are interchangeable... more of a tie for 3rd I guess. Dead Island is first because I'm a huge fan of anything zombie related and the game wasn't much like the trailer, besides being the buggiest game I've ever played in my life. Brink seemed like a great concept and fell totally flat for me. AC, Rage, and LA Noire were all repetitive and boring. Just my opinion.

I actually liked KZ3, it was like a "mind f*ck" that was needed to keep things going, but the game did kind of fail at its main purpose and that was; To have the players, feel the emotions of being stuck on a planet far away from home, where EVERYONE, and EVERYTHING on it, hates you, and wants to kill you!... That right there alone was the main, of many reasons way I bought it... and also to keep up with the KZ game series...

Saints Row 3 was very dissapointing sequal compared to Saints 2. I like funny and quirky, but being a corporate "gangster" who makes appointments for manicures while doing drive bys is not my idea of a criminal. Plus the octopus gun and outer space stuff is just over the top childish. Finally they removed the aawesome customization of Saints Row 2 and SR3 is only 12 hours then there is little reason to go back. I know it sold 4 million copy's, but I think that was because people expected a great game (like SR2). SR 3 was "fun", but in a dumbass ren and stimpy slapstick kind of way that didnt stay fun for long once u beat it.

Hope SR4 can be more like SR2

How the flying foook would he know that if he didn't finish it multiple times... It certainly didn't 'scupper' the replay value for him then did it. And very clearly he has NEVER played this game because he assumes that only the ending is different when in fact there are multiple branches throughout the entire game.

I find your inclusion of Heavy Rain most perplexing...And stupid. Heavy Rain was a game that really drew me in. Especially knowing that my characters could die and I would have to continue the story without them.

Heavy Rain is 1 of the most immersive (dunno if that's a word) titles I've ever played in my life-time! I lost my favorite character throughout the storyline and was deeply saddened by my failure to save him. The game was just plain amazing!

You also say that Vanquish is like Halo meets Gears...I find this confusing as well since the suit is the only similarity with Halo and in Halo it's just armor, in Vanquish it's actually improving his ability.

If you wanna get nit-picky about the space station being the similarity, it made me think of Gundam Colonies rather than Halo's Halo station.
Reiko  +   623d ago

Knushwood Butt  +   623d ago
There's so much to GT5 it's amazing, but it's not perfect either.

One thing that really annoys me is that whenever you get into trouble your car just does a 180 degree spin, leaving you facing the opposite direction to the way you are supposed to be going, EVERY TIME NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO. That's really lame.

Then, if you're unlucky, if you actually bother trying to recover another CPU car will come along and knock you 360 degrees around, so that you'll still be facing the opposite direction to the way you are supposed to be going.

Still love the game though.

It's not always easy to tell an honest opinion from a fanboy's praise or trolling.

Despite the fact that I loved Heavy Rain, I can see why some people wouldn't, so I don't think it's inclusion on this list is a "fail" as some claim above. One person's honest opinion is no more valid than another's, when speaking about "fun".

I can see someone not liking the Uncharted series too. If everyone loved the same gameplay, there wouldn't be much variety to games. What I don't get is when a person says they loved UC2 and hated UC3. There are differences between the two, and I'd say UC2 is better overall, but the differences aren't so great that they justify a complete change of heart.

SOCOM is a slightly different story. The differences between the originals and the PS3 versions are pretty significant, especially with S4, but I've played and enjoyed them all so I don't like it when people declare S4 to be "trash". It's different, that's all.

vickers500  +   623d ago
Oh. I really like the world so far. The beginning fall themed environments I didn't like so much, but once you get out of that particular area, there are some very beautifully designed and varied environments.

The other aspects of the world (ai encounters, enemies, loot, findable items) seem fine to me though. There's tons of treasure to find (especially if you have the detect hidden skill up to like 3 or 4), there's lorestones to find, which are cool because they're actually worth searching for since they give a permanent stat bonus to you, there's npcs with side missions, there's unique items to be found.

In terms of people I'd have to agree though. The npcs don't feel believable as characters that actually belong to the world, rather they feel like tools for you to help you on your journey, but even so, that doesn't ruin the game for me.

The story was lackluster at best for a GTA title and there was nothing to do besides the story. I saw that game as a good police chase/shootouts simulator with a forgettable story and main character. Also the on foot gameplay was clunky.

I did enjoy the story for lost and the damned though. I am a huge sons of anarchy fan so I liked the mc storyline. I started TBOGT but lost interest after a few missions. I need to pick that up again and finish it.

@ape007
So just cause he didn't like a game you consider him casual? Who says he didn't like the game because he found it hard or even because of the gameplay? GTA 4 has a really standard control scheme and is really easy. So I don't even know where you got the idea that he didn't like the game cause he's too casual...

could be becuase the story was beat and for as detailed as it was, why does the character still act broke after he robbed a bank.

or......how about the fact that they made the game more casual, every gta up to that point built upon the previous entry added a whole new list of things to do, in gta4, all you could do is the story

nop more customizing your characters looks, no more bicycles, no airplanes, you could only get a few propertiess, no gaining territories, no customizing cars, removed all stats, etc....the list goes on.

they took away all the elements that made it deep and made it accesible and casual. if anything, your sir, are the casual gamer

@GTRrocker666, man with all due respect Niko Bellic is the best gta character to ever, even rockstar themselves showed no hesitation of showing him in the very first trailer of the game, the were confident that it's going to be a great character, all gta characters are awesome but imo i find niko the best

Niko better than Vercetti or CJ? You must like depressing characters with 0 personality.

Lost planet 2. I played both demos and loved it. Then when I got my pre order copy I was so dissapointed. The best part of the game was the demo part. The boss battles and mech parts were good but the rest of the game was crap .

Not to mention there was no storyline whatsoever. Completely lazy game making if you ask me. There was so much potential for a good storyline with the planet they were on with all those crazy giant insects to have great scenes with characters. But that game had neither: a story or characters. WTF

The biggest let down was by far Diablo 3 I cant believe that I w8 for a decade for this garbage...

But D3 was not the only disappointment for me, for the past 10 years I get nothing more than one disappointment after another, all my once favorite franchises like Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, Silent Hill have turn to shit.

At least Kojima (MGS4) & Takahashi (Xenoblade) continue to create unforgettable experiences of triple-A quality I cant w8 to play Mikami's Zwei next.

looooong list here.....

this year......
kingdoms of amalur
dragons dogma
armored core 5
the amazing spiderman

in the past....( current gen )
GTA4
halo reach
uncharted 2/3
gears of war 3
god of war 3
mass effect 2 ( compared to 1 otherwise still great )
dragon age 2
resident evil 5 ( compared to 4 but otherwise still a good game )
bioshock

Skyrim ( worst offender since morrowind is my fav game of all time and oblivion is up there as well )

.....pretty much every overhyped sequel turns out meh for me. i stopped buying into all the hype and just buying what i though looked good and i still ended up with duds like kingdom and dogma.

I thought gears 3 was better than gears 2, not story wise, but everything else. everything else makes sense.

Do the approvers read the articles before approving them?

This was awful
cchum  +   623d ago
They scan the headline for negativity.....and then automatically approve them.
