I thought that title belonged to infamous. Oh well, Bungie has always been good. What happened?
Yeah but at least infamous and Destiny are fun to play meanwhile WatchDogs is just pure garbage.
That's a sad attempt at trolling, even if you are a psychotic stalker. Destiny is not disappointing, you just don't see any people defending the game because they are all busy enjoying the game
"Destiny is, so far, the most disappointing game of 2014" Says the press. Not gamers who've actually played the game.
Yeah right. Watch Dogs had way less hype than Destiny and it has a higher metacritic score. (80 vs 75). By any objective metric Destiny was more the game that failed to live up to its hype. Your own opinion doesn't matter in this discussion because we all have our own opinions. One person might hate Destiny and Infamous and love Watch Dogs, while someone else hates Infamous SS and Watch Dogs and loves Destiny. We all have our own opinions on these games, but if we are going to talk about the overall reception or hype of a game we have to go off of things that can actually be measured.
Absolutely agree. Watch Dogs was a waste of pixels. The most disappointing game I have played this year.
As I own alll three , watchdogs is by far the most boring game I've bought in a few years . Infamous was a 7 . It was just way to easy & the story made me mad after the brother died . It was fun , but way to much of the same type of missions . Meanwhile Destiny is pretty amazing if you give it a try . A solid 9 in my opinion . But I find my self playing plants vs zombies gw way more then any game on next gen . Such a sleeper . Can get lost for hours playing it !
Definitely Watch Dogs.
Nah, Watch Dogs wasn't hyped nearly as much and it still has a higher average score than Destiny. Therefor Destiny is further away from matching its hype than Watch Dogs. Watch Dogs has an 80 on metacritic while Destiny has a 75. In any case, I liked Watch Dogs. I haven't played Destiny yet, but it seems some people really like it while others don't. We all have our own tastes and preferences.
The disagrees are pathetic. You stealth disagree-ers can't even provide a counter argument or any ideas of your own. All you can do is hit that disagree button. What is there to disagree with? Do you disagree that we all have our own tastes and preferences? Are you disagreeing with the fact that Watch Dogs has a higher metacritic average than Destiny? If so, provide some evidence to the contrary. And if you disagree with my statement that Destiny was hyped more than Watch Dogs I would love to hear your reasons for thinking otherwise because it seems pretty obvious to me that Watch Dogs received a lot of hate long before it ever came out while Destiny's hype was almost purely positive.
Don't feed the troll, guys.
Titanfall sucks EDIT: i havent played it (not available in my country) but do you see how annoying that is by any chance?
Infamous you stupid? That game was never hyped like destiny, and destiny actually reviewed worse, please.
After leaving MS to keep from being trapped into making Halo games forever, they turned right around and made a Halo game. Something with an overly grand scaled adventure which only a sole ground solider, a "chosen one" who really gives off no indication of being extra ordinary, can complete. Though I think Halo had at least more than one instance where "shoot it then shoot it some more" solved everything.
@mrpsychoticstalker, LMAO! I said the exact same thing! Friggin Infamous is by far the most disappointing GOTY at this point.
Destiny is really fun. Most of the complaints I've heard are about the Story and PvP. * Basically = this: * Those who are only interested in the Story, found it disappointing, they then equate the entire game to sucking. * Those who aren't good at PvP, so then say there must be something wrong with the PvP, because they are doing bad. You know the whole " PvP takes no skill"......mean while they go 3-17. It takes skill, you just don't have any person complaining... Destiny is fun for what it is, and it gets A LOT of the small details right. The story's main concept is awesome, the actual story we get though, kind of does suck. The gameplay is awesome, and the sparrow is the funnest in game vehicle I've ever driven. They got a ton right, but people who are ignorant.....those things are above their comprehension level, so they don't understand those small details.
says the guy who has obviously play infamous.
So glad I passed on Destiny. No games have disappointed me yet as I haven't bought into any hype. Wolfenstein is my favourite game so far this year, totally unexpected and amazing!
If you haven't bought into the hype, then it won't disappoint you, as its still an awesome game. Does it live up to the impossible amount of hype behind it? No. No game could have done that. But as long as you are okay with a weak story, and very similar missions, then you will be okay, as the actual gameplay is immensely fun and polished. Basically, aside from the two things I mentioned, which seems to be the biggest argument from all the reviews, the game is great. I give it a solid 8.5.
The game deserves an 8 at most but nothing lower than a 7.5 and this game has critically wounded bungie as a triple A developer as it hasn't ever been able to make a game like Halo because all the other games they developed have not managed to be that great. I would blame the poor performance of bungie on Bobby Kotick as I view him as the reason the game that the game is past gen and probably forced bungie for parity between consoles like he did with the COD series. Had this game allowed more players per map and actually pushed the 5GB of ram that the next gen systems could handle, I wouldn't doubt that we would have Battlefield lovers praising this game for the immensive enviroment, destructable enviroments with the Halo touch and MMO elements included but instead the Destiny we got could never be what it was meant to be.
Well I tried the alpha and beta and they bored me to death. I let a friend (with very similar tastes) buy it first and he hates it, and ive watched streams and found them very boring too. I'm not saying its a bad game, technically it was impressive. I was surprised how solid and stable the game was, the alpha was more stable than many final releases. But as far as tastes and opinions go it really isn't for me and I'm glad I didn't buy it. I very nearly did just because everyone else was but I held back.
Don't waste your money on Destiny. It sucks. Some of these people who wasted their money are making the best out of their purchases and try to play the game. But the whole time they know it sucks. They're not defending Destiny they're defending their $60.
translation: "others don't think like me, listen to me and don't buy the game. Any praise for this game stems from buyers remorse. Think like me." Wolfenstein is a good game.
Nope. the gameplay is solid,the PvP is fun and skillbased.and about the story ,i think it was on purpose,most people are forgetting that it's supost to be a ten year project,so the story is not finish,it'on the open se have to wait (mostlly DLC of course). Hate all you want me and my buddies are having a blast. Someone wanna join me in a strike =)?
Oh no...... Not another "those who like it, really don't, but are trying to justify their $60 purchase" arguments.... If I hate a game, the last thing I do is go around the internet telling everyone how much I'm enjoying it!!!
I'm having fun. But you know me better than I do so I guess I'll go kill myself.
nahh its still watch dogs, but destinys not that far behind IMO.
Nope. Watch Dogs was mainly in the news due to delays and talk of "downgrades". Destiny was by far the game that was hyped more. Yet it also scored 5 points lower than Watch Dogs. (Watch Dogs has an 80, while Destiny has a 75). Watch Dogs was just about what I was expecting. It didn't absolutely blow me away, but it was a very enjoyable game.
But I coulda swore I said IMO at the end of my initial comment...
Yeah, but individual opinions are worthless in this context. There are as many opinions on these games as there are individuals. The subject is which game was a bigger disappointment and which failed to meet its hype to a greater degree. Looking at the hype and the critical reception of both games Destiny was clearly the worse in that regard. If we're just talking about personal opinions, I doubt anyone cares, but I wouldn't consider either game to be a failure or a disappointment because I don't buy into hype in the first place. Watch Dogs was a fun game to me, and Destiny will probably be too. Edit: Oh never mind. Reading over all of these comments I realize what it is all about. Sony fans are defending Destiny and bashing Titanfall and Watch Dogs, while Xbox Fans defend Titanfall and bash Destiny and Watch Dogs. That's just sad and pathetic. The gaming community is a joke.
It's trendy to hate on the most hyped game of the year. I'll say this. If this game is a 6/10 like most haters want people to think, it's the goddamned best 6/10 game I've ever played! I want more 6.0 games!
Exactly. Most 6/10 games have something fundamentally wrong with the gameplay. There are glitches, or the game itself is unfinished, and lacks polish. This game has none of that. Like I said before, aside from a weak story and similar missions, the game is great. No way in hell is it a 6/10.
agreed the game is no 9-10 but not WAY its a 6 7-8 is fair though. Too bad, because I expected wonders from them. Maybe its beause they went multiplat like Insomnia or perhaps is Activisions fault. I know that here at N4G they will find someway to blame Ms though. :)
I did not buy it did not like beta. This game is not a 6 and the people I know love the game.
So, you like playing average games that are devoid of quality?
Again I would NOT go that far. The game has major problems but the overall experience is NOT disappointing.
Yep....funny thing is I enjoyed this and watchdogs...yep...they have their flaws but calling it the mist disappointing games is going overboard.
Titanfall, Destiny & Watchdogs The holy trinity of overhyped disappointing games. PS4 fans are diligently defending their purchases of Destiny like it was an exclusive or their own child. Xbox fans did the same with Titanfall which was do boring after 1 or 2 days you had seen it all. Watchdogs....the less said about that one the better and I am glad there was not a rallied defence for it.
Dude... Stop acting like PS4 fans think this is some kind of exclusive to their system. Its not. Everyone knows that. Believe it or not, this game is not as bad as the "professional" reviewers would have people believe. Just look at the amount of people in these Destiny comments that love the game. It isn't because we are justifying our purchase. Its because people are actually having fun with it. Believe what you want, but there are hundreds of thousands of people playing this game that would disagree with you.
"Just look at the amount of people in these Destiny comments that love the game." there are equally as many, if not more people who are disappointed in destiny. that is also evident in every thread about the game. I think its a fun game in co op. But it certainly is missing a trick. I expected more/better from bungie.
Ive had enough of it.All missions were the same. Go to point A, get out your ghost to scan & defend against waves of enemies. Then at the end there's a big bullet sponge boss that takes forever to kill.I think the actual shooting & overall gameplay was fine, just so repetitive, too repetitive for my liking.
I call bulll Titanfall is awesome. What are u smoking sir! watchdogs i agree.
Titanfall is awesome...for the first 4 hours. Then you've seen the ENTIRE game
Seriously this game sold millions and the line I waited in to pick up my copy was full of xbox gamers. Just because the internet says its crap and a few vocal people hate it means little. Millions bought it and only 50 or so people on here really complaining. Its a good game.
I strongly disagree. Destiny isn't perfect by any means but compared to watchdogs, it's stellar.
The real games come out next year in my opinion that's when ps4 will truly shine destiny is OK but nothing special
After spending the whole weekend with it I disagree. It started a 7.5 to me and ended up a 9.5 by Monday. Its a great game.
Yep I had it at 7 on friday but by Sunday I was seriously hooked I give it 8.5.
The game is awesome. you're either playing it alone or with people who are way to serious... me and my mates spent an hour playing football on the tower..
there is a "soccer" ball on the tower.
What? Instead of outside in the Park? Maybe I'm missing something........
How many damn posts do we have to have about this?
Agreed. Im over this whole thing now. And so should the gaming community, be. Not like there aint other games coming out.
Sometimes I look at these articles/comments from the internet and I wonder if we all played the same game but I know we did. It just baffles me to see some ppl say Destiny is worst than Titanfall when Titanfall's so called story is very laughable compared to destiny and Destiny's Mp has more stuff to keep you coming back than Titanfall's such as guns etc... also its really fun to play. Well I'm just so glad internet comments or whatever never influences my personal opinion on a game or anything for that matter. I played the Destiny beta and loved it and That's why I bought the game. Anyone can disagree with me but I got what I was expecting out of Destiny and personally I'll rate it a 8.5/10 solid game play that sometimes made forget there's even a story, great atmosphere/environments, great soundtrack, that gets you in the mood, good loot system. But hey!!!! that's just my opinion.
"I think Titanfall had a better story" #1.5 http://n4g.com/news/1585892... They exist! Mindblowing. I know!!
Destiny is being held to a higher standard than other games (especially titanfall) because Destiny is making some people look bad. The articles are paid for in advance to bash the game. The gamers are praising the game and the articles are doing their best that people don't buy and find out for themselves what a masterpiece it is.
enough with these articles. If you like it, play it. (I know I am) If you don't, pass it.
infamous was a solid title destiny is solid too if you balance everything you do in the game not sure the hate on either, despite me hating the destiny beta I gave it a 2nd chance and it offers a lot.
wow , sure are a lot of buthurt halo fans flooding the internet with garbage reviews this week ............
It'll be interesting to compare Halo:MCC (and eventually Halo5) with Bungie's new universe. I don't think Destiny stands a chance narratively speaking, and I think Bungie knew that. I'm most interested in seeing how the player customization compares. I love customizing my armor. Halo:Reach was really where it shined for Halo. Halo 4 seemed like a step back - and Destiny, obviously, has taken it to the next level. I wonder whether Halo will be able to come back and top Destiny's armor customization, cause IMO the last best was also the last Bungie made Halo, not 343i's Halo4.
Destiny is making some people look that, that why the mixed reviews are there. its bash Destiny to get paid month. Personally, I couldn't be happier with Destiny, playing it on hard is some of the most fun I've had playing a videogame in a long time. (not that its not painful sometimes)
The (blame Halo fans) excuses coming from the PS side is pathetic. Halo fans don't control 95% of the game media.
Butthurt? I'm still excited for both announced Halo games and I loved 343's Halo 4
No it's not.
This whole ordeal is really kinda sad if you think about it. We have these game journalist calling a game a disappointment when it was them that 'hype' games up to the enth degree. Sure the developers are also at fault delivering on games that are far below what was promised. They are guilty of hyping their games but guess what that is what they do. They spent years of hard work creating something they think is great so of course they are going to be proud of it. I don't get why the game journalist are trying to act all innocent here when they are as much to blame for hyping a game up as the developers. We get constant previews saying this 'game is the next best thing', rave about it in previews but when the actual review comes out it isn't as glowing as their previews. See i applaud Activision for not handing out copies of the game (Destiny) for gaming sites. In the end it is the general audience that will decide if a game is good or not, i don't see why we need game journalist to tell us what is good or bad about a game. The reason cause everyone has different opinions, I rather make my own assumption.
I haven't been paying much attention to this game at all. I get the impression this game is online multiplayer only? You know like Defiance? Or does this game have a campaign mode where you can play online with people like online co op through the story like Halo or Gears of War?
When the likes of watch dogs is around, I am not even going to grace this site with my clicks You know what is sad about this codd ghost was mediocre bf4 was a disaster yet they got 9-10... I am done with reviews Good day
Even though this game is not as great as expected you can bet your ass Sony will still push the white PS4s as eventually the black model will run out and 150,000 to 500,000 that sony produced will be sold out for that reason. Sony should focus on investing on first party exclusives or established blockbuster franchises to sell bundles. Microsoft is smart for offering COD and Madden with consoles sold as it is a franchise people enjoy. Sony should try getting a Fifa 15 bundle and NBA2K15.
