Continue Play's Oliver Zimmerman thinks back to all those disappointing moments in gaming's bumpy past.
I'll give some of my own personal ones, Not in order and def can't do top ten there are soo many.... 1 - BRINK 2 - Bought MK9 during PSN Blackout couldn't 3 - 2 weeks into Playstation Allstars and reallizing how unfinished it is 4 - When FFXIV first came out/The crazy wait for FFXIII Versus 5 - The last guardian delays 6 - The realization of lack PS Vita support on most fronts 7 - My Sega Gensis Broke the day I "bought" Sonic and Knuckles 8 - My PS3 Yellow lighted the Night I bought MAG on midnight launch 9 - Twisted Metal/Starhawk Sales 10 - Most of the endings to Legacy of Kain games (yes I know why they are like that) *BONUS* - Realization I'm Never going to see a Mega Man 8 like MM game ever again **BONUS** - Roy and Mew Two was absent from SSB Brawl ***BONUS*** - Brawl. lol.....but some really Pissed me off though.
Lol yeah Brink was a pretty big disappointment. One of mine was Turning Point. It had SUCH a good premise, just turned out horrible :/. Another would be the lack of people to play MAG with. It was easy enough to play for a couple months, but it eventually turned into a 2 hour waiting game just to get lucky enough to get into a game, and all the other modes no one played. Loved that game personally. I agree on the Vita one, I love mine, and have TONS of games for it... it just really should have more support overall. TOTALLY agree with Twisted Metal and Starhawk, both were so good. Another would be Age of Conan... it could have be so much, but ultimately just fell flat on it's face. There's quite a few moments to be honest, but at least there's plenty of good moments too to make up for them :D
All 10 entries on the same page? What magic is this?!? In all seriousness, this is a well-worded and thoughtful look at the missteps in the gaming industry. Great job! Story quality - Excellent Like the Website - Yes
Thanks man, we appreciate it :)
No order 1. PSN down for a month, the month Portal 2, SOCOM, Mortal Kombat, and other games came out at that. 2. Xbox One reveal 3. Zipper Interactive shut down 4. PS3 from launch until 2009 5. Crash Bandicoot and Spyro not owned by Sony or ND and Insomniac respectively. 6. The Wii 7. RRoD 8. Microtransactions 9. Activision killing Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero by releasing it too often 10. David Hayter not voice of Snake anymore Bonus: infamous 2 reveal with that weird looking douchebag they called "Cole McGrath". I'm glad they changed the look of him back to normal though.
I agree with everything but I would also add Watch Dogs and Sony forgetting about most of their PS1 IPs and cutting all ties with the classics on PS4.
Yes, I did forget those. I went off the top of my head, I'm sure there are plenty of other important disappointing moments I've forgotten too. ......it's better they stay forgotten.....
The Wii wasnt a letdown in my opinion. It was never touted as anything but the Console for Casuals. Now the Wii U launch, there is a bad memory.
I was a young lad when the Wii came out, I believe 6th or 7th grade. I wasn't following advertisements, I just wanted a Gamecube 2, and I didn't get a Gamecube 2 when I opened a Wii Christmas morning. I got, the Wii.....
The launch was bad, but the console itself is fantastic :)
Great list Olitron! I really enjoyed reading this one quite a bit.
In my most humble of opinions, the Kinect 2.0 is the biggest letdown in the last few years I can think of. The 1:1 tracking and voice recognition were severely lacking at launch. I know this is a polarizing topic, but its just my thoughts.
I actually had a Virtualboy smh.
Wow, the "PSP Go" should of made that list. Hell, the Vita and PlayStation TV should of made the list. Microsoft Kinect should of made the list. The OP should of made the list. Lol
The OP did make the list!
But he's not in it, and you neither. Edit: A ten year old could of done a better job.
In other words, "there are things I think that should be on the list which aren't on it, therefore list is crap"? Entitled, much?
The list isn't crap by no means, but it's one sided.
