Games That Turned Hype Into Disappointment

Game Informer - Today's cancellation of Aliens: Colonial Marines on Wii U is the final chapter in the long and sad story of the game's development. At one point, Colonial Marines was a highly anticipated title, but fans' excitement and expectations hit rock bottom once they actually played it. This doesn't happen often in the industry, but occasionally we are unpleasantly surprised when the reality of a title falls far short of our high hopes. These are some of this generation's examples of this concept. They aren't all bad games; some of them just couldn't live up to the ridiculous hype surrounding them. (Culture)
