4 Popular Games That Didn’t Live Up To The Hype

The Non-Fiction Gaming writers share their experiences with some popular games that didn't quite live up to the expectation.

"Did you ever play a game that everyone seemed to love except you? Or do you disagree with our opinions on your favourite game?" (Assassin's Creed, BioShock: Infinite, Dota 2, PC, World of Warcraft)

Bioshock infinite didnt disappoint me really , it was a masterpiece to me , yes the gunplay felt dumbed down but it was still good , its a shame they closed the studio after that game , we keep losing these awesome devs and get stuck with those whose game is copy and paste and sells million :( about WOW i actually installed it played it for 20 min , closed it , removed it from pc , never looked back . Dota 2 is great but i always feel like a noob , i dont think i ever won a match :D . And finally assasins creed 1 , that game is the only one that i rank really high next to Assasin Creed 2 ..

I agree. In my opinion Bioshock Infinite is not only great, but in the top 10 of all time games.

BioShock Infinite is frickin amazing

Like any game it's subjective. One friend said it was amazing, another traded it in without finishing it.

For me:

GTA 4
Halo 2 PC
Any COD after COD4
Gran Turismo 5

Sounds like he is fishing for controversy. Just listing some very popular games to start some arguments.

This list is just his personal views. No way did World of Warcraft not live up to the hype. It seems the author did not play it with friends, or even reach a decent level.

Its an MMO, you are supposed to play with others.

I thought Bioshock Infinite was wonderful. Also WoW, yeah it did not live up to the hype that is why people are still playing it almost 10 years later.

As for AC it blew me away back when I first got my 360 it was gorgeous with a detailed and lively world just left me in awe plus I thought it was pretty unique and original at the time
