Hey GT you forgot the real disappointment of 2012, Resident Evil 6 hands down winner/loser no contest.

What? Not WarZ? Promising to be everything DayZ wasn't (i.e. stable) but turning into easily the biggest bust of the year? I honestly felt betrayed when I played the alpha. It's broken, sound files are missing, animations are stuttered and dodgy at best and for the false advertisement on the game's Steam Page (and Sergei Titov's subsequent interview by Gamespy: http://uk.pc.gamespy.com/pc... ) alone, Hammerpoint should be shut down. Mark my words, the name Sergei Titov will go down in infamy for this debacle.

I don't think RE6 was a disappointment because anyone with half a working braincell who sat through a 5 minute gameplay video of the thing could tell it wasn't going to be any good. Oh sure, there's fun to be found but you need to dig reaaaaal deep and it certainly doesn't last for long before it's back to tedious poorly implemented TPS mechanics and some genuinely shocking design choices.

i played re 6 mercenaries mode, and the story of jake for the first level or 2. it was pretty decent. but why do ppl say its horrible. aside from repeating a mission with a different character or or rewatchin a scene? like wat about the feel or gameplay is bad.

Max Payne 3?
LOL. Whatever you say reviewers

Declassified was just always going to be a disappointed. Herald as the VITA savior even before any footage or screenshot or even concept art was ever aired, this game was carrying alot on its proverbial shoulders.
The fact that it was a critical flop only cemented its fate as one of the most disappointing gaming events of the year.

Steel Batallion for the 360 was pretty horrible as well. Everyone was hyping it to be the saviour of core gaming with Kinect but in the end it stunk horribly.

I was one of those disappointed by Steel battalion so I agree.
Funny thing though, Kinect games aren't usually termed 360 games when tallying up exclusives, so it was rather amusing to see you refer to it as a 360 title in this particular instance.

RE6, there's no contest there.

I don't know...Operation Raccoon City gives it a run for its money.

Though that's depending on whether one was excited for ORC to begin with. lol

Raccoon city wasn't a cannon title and wasn't developed by capcom.

PS. Whoever disagreed with me has no clue what RE is all about, this is fucking sad.

Many people were disappointed with ME3 and Diablo 3. Doesn't mean they were bad games, just didn't live up to the hype.

I heard a lot of people complaining about Madden 13, but I never played it. Just wanted to toss that out there.

I'm playing hitman right now and other than the disguises I don't see the major problem with the game. Sure you can't do it like before with the safe house, but its all due to the part of the story. I think this is just the basis to establish whats to come. The fact that Max Payne 3 is on here just makes their whole argument invalid.

Max Payne 3? WTF? Max Payne 3 was incredible!
Hingle_Mcringleberry  +   1145d ago
Sorcery. Much like Declassified was supposed to be the savior of the Vita, it was meant to be Move's killer app. In the end it was mediocre and very disappointing.

Great call on Epic Mickey 2.

Personally Sleeping Dogs was my most disappointing game last year, after looking forward to it for ages I just couldn't get in to it and gave up after 2 hrs!
