Has any game in recent memory attained such levels of hype? How far back would you have to go before you find a game that was this highly anticipated?
I think GTA V was more Hyped up then this.
I think that because you used 'then this' that your opinion belongs in the toilet...
Well GTA 5 is an established franchise. The hype was warranted. And it lived up to it partly. Minus the online heists.
ah, GTA V, is a Chuck of Boring Repetitive Shit
Probably the COD series, though that was unwarranted in my opinion. I wasn't buying in to the destiny hype but after playing the alpha and the beta I have to say it earned it. Watch_Dogs almost had a similar amount of hype until ubisoft went and shot themselves in the foot with how they handled the backlash of the fidelity downgrade. Saying it doesnt matter that your graphics took a hit because the gameplay is good and then continuing to release those heavily doctored bullshots as promotional material? Smooooth. Real smooth. The game I'm most hyped for currently is definitely No Mans Sky. Can't wait, feel like a lil kid again reading sci-fi novels for the first time.
Yeah, that's what he meant.
And Watchdogs before that
Yep, both Titanfall and Watchdogs which both turned out to be just decent games but nothing special.
Halo 4 i think !
Titan fall: I can remember when not knowing much about this game and a few ign users flipped and name calling as well as asking what rock did I just crawl out of Watch_Doge
mario kart 8
It says hows far back , how did you miss titanfall?
I've never been so hyped for a game like I am for this one, mostly because I played the Beta and the Alpha and I'm just itching to have the full game.
Is not nearly every major release of a big publisher hyped up beyond good and evil?
Halo on the original Xbox but not before it came out but after people played it and told friends about it.
What about Halo 2, it was the first Game to Have a MidNight launch, which was because of the mass generation of Hype that was Created, Halo 3 also had a Damn load of Hype
Halo 2 was probably the first example of how modern AAA games are advertised and launched. Microsoft poured so much money in to its ad campaign with massive bilboards and invasion posters catering to each locale, the ARG ilovebees, tv spots, reveal trailers in theatres before slect films and so on and so forth. It also revolutionised how matchmaking and stat tracking was done on competitive games for consoles. Being able to go on bungie.net and see where you were killed in a game on the map, how far away and with what weapon etc and the heat maps, still don't see a lot of games going in to that much detail with its post game stats. Halo was never really about the MP for me though, I loved the first games single player and I don't think it has been matched since by any of the Halos that came after. Destinys SP experience has been fantastic so far, I don't care if its PVP is lesser or greater than Halos, I barely touched the PVP during alpha/beta, I'm just happy to see Bungie back on form, even if it is with the greater of 3 evils, Activision.
Sorry i feel nothing for this game. :( I played the beta on ps4. Really tried to like it but i didn't. Gonna see it and play it at a friend's house hope my opinion change.
Destiny is definitely best enjoyed with friends for the single player portions. Didn't really touch the PVP all that much myself, and I found myself reluctent to play it when none of my friends were online. Shame theres no local co-op so you guys can play together when you're visiting his house. Also proximity voice is awesome, death to party chat! :P
Mass Effect 3.
'Insane hype'? I can't say this game has registered Insane Hype in the community - maybe half assed blogs and hack journalists trying to write sensationalist articles have tried to claim that (and probably have 'Destiny fails to live up to insane hype' articles already written!). Most people who played the Alpha / Beta know what to expect - so it's more excitement now than hype.
Yeah, I think you're right. "Hype" isn't the correct word, "Excitement" is. I think what happened with Titanfall got people to be a bit more realistic in terms of what to expect. While I love Titanfall, The problem came when it was hyped to be the new "CoD killer". Destiny doesn't have that pressure on it. Destiny's only real competitor is itself. The comparisons to Halo are going to be all over the place if it fails to live up to what they've promised. I, however, really believe that Destiny will succeed and will be exactly what people wanted it to be.
Well said you two :) Bubs and bubs galore!
And watch Dogs
probably Skyrim, and Star Wars the Old Republic for me personally
Watch Dogs and look how that turned out. 22 missions, thats weak bungie, this game will be cleared within its first month of release.
Pretty much. I can't believe how much that game was hyped here.
Watch Dogs had more hype.
My friend said that his ex-wife was pretty hyped up.
TitanFall had more hype in my opinion, people were going insane thinking it was going to destroy Call of Duty and be the highest rated game of the year, which in a way kind of flopped because it diddnt meet the expectations of both sales and reviews.
The beta and alpha is the reason for the hype. The fact that they were better than most complete games says it all. Bungie put the game in our hands months before launch and made the masses experienced it and ultimately make their own judgement. That being said, it's safe to say that this hype is real. It's not as if all we got were articles and videos discribing the game, nope, we actully got to play it and we loved it. Destiny hype is unrivaled. The last time I saw hype like this was for Vice City and Grand Trismo 3 on PS2, massive hype.
Halo Reach? The Last Of Us? Titanfall? Any other rubbish console games I've missed out on?
Rubbish? Kindly disagree.
On this site I guess anything by those happy dog guys or what ever they are called.
for me personally, Skyrim
I remember when I saw the video of master chef with that bubble shield around him every since then I was in with halo and I still play it today lol best gaming ever thank you bungie 4 the great job u have done
The Last of Us. GTA V. Any newer Western triple-A title really.
No game can match GTA for hype...
COD Modern warfare 3
as new ip that lived up to its hype was borderlands 1 or bioshock
