These games had such high expectations, but ultimately failed to live up to them.
Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor should be on this list.
I had pretty high hopes for Twisted Metal. I always wanted it to make a return and do the series justice. Now I think series will be laid to rest.
I don't see how RE6 was a disappointment. A disappointment suggests that people had hopes for the game in the first place. It was clear that RE6 was going the action route MONTHS before the game released, yet people we're shocked to find that it played more like a poor man's Gears than an RE game. Being disappointed by RE6 for not embracing its survival horror roots is like getting naked in front of a rapist in a secluded area and being surprised when he makes a move on you.
There goes that OLD Logicwins that used to say the most stupidest things: "Being disappointed by RE6 for not embracing its survival horror roots is like getting naked in front of a rapist in a secluded area and being surprised when he makes a move on you." Man, I missed THIS real side of you. Lately, u been saying the most obvious stuff, and kissing butt just so u can get more bubbles. But we all know the foolishness inside of you couldn't have possibly been fixed in such a short amount of time. Lol.
what a terrible list.
How is Zombie U on this list...I agree with the others, although RE6 isn't that bad!
Twisted Metal? really? I thought Medal of Honor W would be up there.
This list is trash IMO just because it has Kingdoms of Amalur. That game was fantastic. I had an absolute blast exploring that world.
see. it's articles like this that tend to "impose" an idea that these are the 5 MOST DISAPPOINTING GAMES OF 2012, yet each game having mixed reactions from gamers, reviewers, and the general public. why can't they just say "Here's MY 5 most disappointing games of 2012", coz essentially that's what it is. A list of games the author found disappointing.
Actually, all of the editors from the site discussed their most disappointing games and came to a consensus on what the top five were. Just to let you know :)
given that all of the editors from the site agreed that those are the most disappointing; nevertheless that is still giving an idea that those choices, made by a small group of people are rather disappointing for their taste, and hopefully will be the same for others. the title could have been "Our 5 most disappointing games of 2012", that would at least make it more honest.
Okay so, "Our most disappointing games of 2012."
That means the site is worthless to me. Good to know so I won't waste my time looking at it.
Ghost Recon for me. I'm still licking my own feet just to get the taste out of my mouth.
Taking a cat bath, bathy?
The expression doesnt normally use feet but I'm just trying to stay PG.
I hate how everyone calls games.. apps now.
I can think of alot worst than them games.
Everyone in most gaming forums are praising zombiU. Go figure. How can you be so far off the mark? Not sure about most on the list other than declassified. Why only 5?
Their are a lot of people who like ZombiU so it shouldn't be on this list.
I have heard nothing but good things about ZombiU. The only bad things mentioned have always come from so-called game journalists. but hey I am sure that site is enjoying some hits because of this article.
