7 Disappointing Games That Broke Epic Promises

AlienLion:

2005 – 2013, or the seventh generation of gaming (let’s call it that), was certainly fun but it will probably not be remembered for its’ lack of disappointments. Plenty of releases did not live up to expectations, and others never happened at all. I bet that nobody is as bothered by this fact as the developers themselves. After all, they spent years of their lives working on something that either sucks or will never see the light of day. I feel for them, too, because they can’t always help things, but there are some instances where they need to be called out, and that’s when they completely over-promise and under-deliver. So, let’s do just that, by listing the seven biggest broken promises of this particular period in gaming. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Culture, Dark Sector, Diablo III, Gran Turismo 5, Industry, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The War Z)

Lol, I knew Aliens: CM would be on this list the second that I read the title. I also loved the 'full retard' reference XD

After reading this, I do have to admit that these games didn't (to varying degrees) live up to their promises. Not that they are bad (at least not all of them), but still.

Totally disagree with gt5. That game has more in it for a $60 game than 99% of the games released this gen. Not to mention if you don't play it with a steering wheel you are playing it wrong.

GT5 definitely is ripped by the media for no reason. If people actually play it with a Wheel you find out how the game far exceeded anything else out there on consoles.

As Killrate said, it's not that they are bad games. GT5 wasn't bad by any means but it did not live up to the promises. I enjoyed the game and yeah it exceeded other console racers in many ways but it wasn't a big step up from Prologue.

GT5 could have never lived up to the expectation, It is too masive of a game . They had two options delay it until its finished maybe a 2011-2012 release, or release it how it was released.
Both ways would get a backlash, im happy with the way it was released

How about just about every Fable game
maximaz  +   533d ago
The first one is famous for that but the other two not so much.

Least those games came out, what about Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
