It literally blows my mind that Too Human was not on this list. Too Human was one of the most hyped games of all-time and not only was it almost universally panned critically, but it essentially killed Silicon Knights. The game was expected to be the beginning of the next great series but it wound up being so bad, apparently this author forgot about it.

I bought a 360 for that game and ultimately sold it for the same reason.

I believe X-Men Destiny was their nail in the coffin, but I know what you mean.

Too Human had so much promise and it was supposed to be a trilogy.

Lets give a big round of applause to the 5 Sony Exclusives that made this list!

I'm so angry at this list of top 10 games that flopped this gen in gaming.

I'll agree that Too Human most certainly deserves a spot on this list. It seems like most of the games on this list definitely qualify as flops too. I think with a game like God of War: Ascension, fans obviously have high standards for the series and thus were disappointed with the end result. I could say the exact same thing for Gears of War: Judgement which should have been DLC as opposed to a $60 retail release, yet it's also not on the list.

Oh, you mean the Top 10 Biggest Current Gen Flops That Aren't On The 360?

Beyond: Two Souls is actually on target to reach Heavy Rain numbers at some point.

Why is Too Human not here? Gears of War: Judgment?

ATiElite990d ago

Too Human was actually good but I dunno about Gears Judgment as I'm NO Gears fan.

X360 fans at that time were all about TEH SHOOTAZ so Too Human sold poorly.

What, no Alone in the Dark 2008/Inferno?
That game flopped harder than a fish.
