The 6 most disappointing games and trends of 2012

Cnet: By now it's no secret that 2012 wasn't a great year for gaming in general, but perhaps no other event reinforced that feeling than this year's E3 convention in Los Angeles.

Chalk it up as a "filler year" or the stagnant wait time in between consoles cycles, but E3 has a lot to make up for in 2013. New systems from Microsoft and Sony are almost guaranteed to at the very least be teased, so hopefully the buzz will be the shot in the arm this industry so desperately needs.

Releasing unfinished products and charging full price for them.

I'm not sure what's worse, doing that, or the pockets of fans that defend the practice by saying "But (insert one or two good aspects of the clearly unfinished game) is good tho!!!" They only make things worse, ugh.

This has more to do with corporate involvement and people who don't play games who run game companies.

Remember Dreamcast's problem with the lack of RPGs? People wanted Shining Force and upper management didn't listen.

There could have been more D&D games, but Atari sat on the license and didn't do anything with it hence Hasbro taking it back.

People want more original Final Fantasy content and they get stuff like 'Lightning Returns.'

3DS launch? Failed because some guy who gets paid about 100k+ thought it would do well without key titles.

There's probably tons of other stupid decisions, but you guys get the idea.

Bitching about bitching. That is a new trend that needs to die.

Bitching about a guy who's bitching on bitching needs to die.

Your post was uninspiring and boring.

I would replace the wii u launch piece in this article with the practice of releasing broken/glitchy/incomplete games not only becoming commonplace but being accepted as the standard. Are all of us just supposed to believe that the next gen is going to kick sooo much ass when these consoles that have been out for years now have consistently awful flaws in their games AND cost millions to make and take half a decade at best to develop. Next gen= next round of hardware/software consumer raping.
