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

What magic is this?!?

In all seriousness, this is a well-worded and thoughtful look at the missteps in the gaming industry. Great job!

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.

ForgottenProphecy1429d ago

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.

ForgottenProphecy1429d ago

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.

SteamPowered1429d ago

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.
