Some of these are bad, some of them just failed to meet crazy high expectations, but they are all disappointing games in one way or another.
For me GOW 4. Actually I was waiting for gruesome, horrifying and exciting masterpiece but it proved to be a generic, monotonous and dull FPS for me.
GoW4 isn't an FPS dude...
It's also GeoW4 . GoW4 comes out next next year 🤔
@article ..ok the list started well ..then i saw TLG there ...Wtf?? ....a game that oozes from quality, a near Game of the year contender ..and here is listed as a disapointment ....clueless idiotic people go play a game before 2006 were games werent simple online garbages for retards and you ill understand
I know right? Just like that RTS called Forza 6. Damn, I hate those games. MS even came out with the dating sim named Halo 5.
Made me chuckle 😂
Oh my sides.. 😒
Gears of War 4 was fine for me compared to the other disasters on the list. probably the 5 worst games on the list are: 1. No Man's Sky 2. The Order 1886 3. ReCore 4. Dead Rising 4 5. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Some games like The Last Guardian, Destiny, Halo 5 & Gears 4 shouldn't even be on the list.
I'm shocked Dragon Age Inquisition was on there. I did pick it up a bit later, but I never really heard mixed thoughts on it.
@dumahim I actually enjoyed Dragon Age Inquisition for what it was worth. It wasn't perfect, but I could easily find other worse games to replace it on this list.
No man sky should be higher up this list
Microsoft, EA, Activision, and Ubisoft. What a shock. The mass creators of digital vomit.
You do realize that the most played games on both the PS and XB are from Activision, EA and Ubisoft.
Yeh and sheep are retarded...Whats your point?
And you know a crappy chick-flick is sitting at #2 at the box office with a 37% rotten tomato score made $19,542,248?
If you're a Patriot's fan, then you should also know that cheaters do win sometimes.
Sorry but The Last Guardian isnt. The biggest Disappointing of This Generation is the lack of new I.P. and broken games at launch, tryng to sell old games as new ones and so on.
Have you played Titanfall, Bloodborne, Nioh or For Honor? Awesome new IPs.
I'll give you a star on all of them except For Honor. Titanfall 2 is so underrated it is ridiculous. And that's just the SP Campaign.
Titanfall is not underrated, critically it was well received, but it is most certainly under appreciated. An excellent game, sent out to die, by a poor choice in a release date.
There has been a few good new IP this gen but not a lot from major publishers like dead space , mass effect, BioShock, skate etc etc games that shake things up from the previous gen
Right there with you on the broken games and personally I would have to say the continuous stagnation of AAA games. The only AAA game that to me truly is next gen and inovated is Shadow of Mordor with its awesome Nemesis system and I'm surprised that that awesome mechanic wasn't borrowed by other studios.
I know the game is beloved here on N4g but I couldn't bring myself to pay money for the Order. Reading about it before it released had me pumped. Reading about it after release was something else all together...
The game is graphically amazing but in my opinion, it was dull and way too short. I beat the game in 5 hours and even 100% in that time. I do think a sequel can do it some justice, similar to the sequels of Assassin's Creed and Watch_Dogs being better than the original.
The order is my biggest disappointment it hurts because I could see the potential
The Order had so much potential. It had that co-op Gears of War feeling(but better) from the trailers and it is not what I expected. No co-op, no character progression, no replay value etc... it basically had none of the things I thought it would from the trailers... besides really cool graphics. I'm hopeful they give the series EIN more chance to pull off an Assassins Creed 2(still arguably the best in the series along with Black Flag, those two stand apart).
I would place the Order as my biggest disappointment as well. I even bought the big collector's edition with the statue because I was a fan of the developer's PSP games, and I thought it looked awesome, but it was just not very fun. There were far too many cutscenes and too much exposition but I didn't find the story to be very well-told or interesting, and the gameplay seemed like an afterthought and it was too broken up with interruptions for the mediocre story. It was a struggle to get to the end for me, personally. I even liked Knack haha, but The Order just didn't do it for me.
I completed The Order in about 3 hours and about 5 hours in total to get the platinum trophy. The single player was decent and the gameplay was ok. But I was disappointed because it was so short. I really got into the story and then it just ended. I wanted more I can only hope a sequel will release some day.
I played through The Order and platinumed it. I took my time to explore everything, read everything. I consider myself a decently skilled gamer. There is no way that was done in 5 hours. We would all like great games to be longer. But the story was so well handled and fused with history (long time fan of the Rani of Jhansi), the combat was tight, the characters interesting, and yes it was a graphical powerhouse. It remains for me one of the best titles of this generation. What The Order did suffer from was what I call the Heavenly Sword effect. This is a reference to what occurred with Heavenly Sword. HS was a game formerly in development for the Xbox. Redmond dropped it, and Sony stepped in. When the game arrived Ninja Theory had pushed the envelope in several areas, particularly performance capture with the help and direction of Andy Serkis. But all anyone could say was the game was linear (as if that is a mortal sin) and the game was terribly short. There were claims of 4 hours in some cases. I actually timed myself and easily hit double digits. Since then, the short linear tag seems to be a method of propaganda for dealing with titles certain persons view as a threat.
I know how fast I beat the game cause I did it all in one sitting. 7am-12pm April 19th. How do I know exactly? Cause I'm looking at my PSNProfile and it tracks when I started and completed the game. 4 hours and 25 minutes according to trophy tracking. Games don't take my long personally. Digimon: Cyber Sleuth also comes to mind. People were saying it took them 100 hours to 100%. Took me 65. How fast a person completes a game varies from person to person; don't say you know for a fact I didn't do it.
When I see an animal that looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, I call that animal a duck. So yes, I am saying it. Playing a game for enjoyment and seeing how fast you can get through it are two different things.
I gather you are one of those individuals that believes a great story can't be told well or engagingly without a sleight of hand. It is an erred assumption that a plot twist is integral to great storytelling.
The Order took me well over 10 hours...probably closer to 15. I enjoyed every minute of it. Dying for a sequel!
Problem here is HS had great action, amazing bosses, and interesting mechanics at the time. The Order seemingly has none of that. I'm fine with the short run time but I played HS at least 4 times through and surely would have platinumed it if that existed back then. I look at the order and even the good reviews turn me off. While I'm sure it doesn't deserve the 4s and 5s it received, I still refuse to buy it because I know disappointment awaits. Now if it comes to ps plus, I'll download it and try it but as of now, I'm won't pay a dime for it.
Read all the reviews you want. After all those have a real history of being on point. If you didn't play it then the fact is you don't know. I guess it never occurred to some people that gamers didn't just defend The Order because it is a Sony title but instead because it is great gaming. Yet they will believe reviews that have demonstrated time and again they are about as accurate as a 20 year old Daisy air rifle.
I can maybe see you rushing through it, skipping cut scenes, and just spamming your way through fights and getting through it in five hours. But if you actually took some time to experience the game, and what it had to offer, you wouldn't have done it in 5 hours. My first run through was about 10 hours or so. Took another couple hours to get the plat. I'd consider it short, but 5 hours is just you rushing through the game. If that's the case, then it's understandable why you have such poor feelings about it. @Morgan I woudn't say it was a great game. It's an average game. It had some flaws, and it was so obviously unfinished and probably Sony put a code lock on it to get it out the door. It was defended against those who made it out to be one of the worst games ever made, which is fair, because it isn't. The mechanics which were there were solid, the story was good, the presentation was phenominal. The lack of variety in enemies, and not enough to do outside the campaign and lack of actual real intersting boss battles though certainly keep it from great status. The game play that was great, the graphics were great, the story was really good(maybe even great), but the actual full delivered package is average.
Dude, just play the game. Its very cheap. The main problem its very, very, very short. Still it got amazing animation, guns and graphics. But i wish it was bigger and had somekind of co-op. But it runs without any problem and doesnt need a 10 gigas patch.
it's like $3 on PSN right now.
i think that the deal is off already. i bought it though. still played like 20 minutes of it so can't say anything so far about it.
It took me about 8 or 9 hours to beat and I didn't get the platinum in that time so I don't understand what everyone is talking about. Now I got the platinum for Fallout 4 about 3 weeks after launch.
Pretty good list but I don't agree with ME Andromeda. The Division and Destiny were solid games but with really lacking end games. I also enjoyed The Order 1886 a lot. For what it was it was damn good, people just had insane expectations.
Yeah I enjoyed the order as well and wishing for a sequel. Mirror's Edge and thief isn't a disappointment either for me but hey opinions are opinions.
uncharted 4: boring asf horizon: repetitive asf final fantasy 15: meh no mans sky: lol ... this list goes on. nearly all AAA titles i regretted buying this gen. and then there are many titles i couldn't even bother with... last guardian. this borne-thing, every fps and onlineshooters. the only title that did not disappoint last year was xcom2 and that one i got for the pc because of dumb exclusivity for 6 months or 8.
Why didn't you rent them first? It seem like you don't care much for ps games anyway.
Care to name anymore PS4 games why you're at it? Persona 5 Ni-Oh Nier Automata Ratchet & Clank MLB The Show Gravity Rush 2 Tales of Berseria Tales of Zestiria Digimon World Next Order Digimon Cyber Sleuth
Etc... Yeah, I know there's a lot of them you missed
Where i didnt play some of these i do have to say this generation of games in all platforms has been most disappointing, like this generation was all about hey look at the res and 4k. Did you know about 4k?
I had the same issue with U4 as the Marvel movies, couldn't kill a good guy even for dramatic effect at the end of a series. But the game was great.
Stopped reading at 'repetitive asf' chris235 the lying troll, you have earned yourself a well deserved nomination for the 'Most Deluded Comment/s on N4G - May 2017' award, no need to explain why.
Everybody keeps forgetting Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. That game was so disappointing and medicore
This. I had high expectations for that game and seeing that Tri-Ace still haven't release a patch to fix all the issues, I lost all faith with Tri-Ace. Thank god Star Ocean 3 is heading to the PS4 as a PS2 game so there's that. Other RPGs that I was very disappointed were SAO Hollow Realization (if you still going to play as Kirito, why even bother creating a female avatar anyway?), Akiba's Beat, Omega Quintet, Natural Doctrine and God Eater Resurrection (Is not bad but I guess you could say that I had high expactations towards the game).
@rangerman I completely agree with the hollow realization critique about the female avatar, ruins my fun in the game that one moment you're playing female and then boom you have a cutscene with male kirito as if you hadn't chose the female avatar. It was very annoying and hampered my immersion. I'd rather that they had used the 3d avatars for in game cutscenes than see anime with the wrong avatar over and over again.
What happened to N4G...its like a ghost town here and the quality of gaming news and articles are horrible.
It's the calm before the storm. There will be a flood of new game articles and features from Sony, future games for Switch and more Scorpio talk from MS. Happens every year right before E3. Surprisingly, not that many leaks this year.
Good. Hopefully the leaks stay plugged. E3 is still one of the few instances in the gaming industry where I can feel like I'm 10 again seeing new games get announced. Last year I went in knowing like 75% of what was shown which kind of sucked.
It isn't gaming news per se but rather the gaming press itself. This sort of journalistic decay and moral rot is to be expected when the press for our hobby is populated by self serving egotistical leeches pushing their individual agendas of opinion and greed.
What Paytaa said,.. I could not agree more.
Too much crap gets approved and the good stuff gets buried and most don't want to dig around to find it. I know I don't read many articles here anymore. Most of the hot articles are just flamebait anyway. There really needs to be a push for some quality control.
100% agreed. That will never happen though because the mods depend on users to submit articles, the problem with this is that the mods have ran a certain user base away from this site and the stuff that usually gets approved and go on the hot page are anti-Xbox articles. I am about done with the place and get all my gaming news from The Know and Rich from Review Tech USA.
It's almost summer. People are getting out more. Plus, most of the "news" now is just opinion articles designed to try and generate clicks until the real news comes closer to E3.
Is have to go with The Order and Infamous. I was looking forward to both games more than any other game but both failed to live up to their hype. Now before you fanboys start accusing me of being a xbox fanboy let me add that MS hasn't released a game this gen that I wanted more than any other game.
Breath of the Wild for me. I don't just dislike it like I did with Skyward Sword, I actually hate this game with every single bone in my body. I guess that's what happens when you buy into epic trailers and ignoring the blatantly obvious boring gameplay demonstrated in the treehouse. I saw amazing storytelling, heard amazing music and felt the need to have this game day 1. Little did I know that all I got was a game where you walk, and walk... and walk, and occasionally ride a horse that goes in all the directions except the one you want to go in unless you tame it. Music is pretty much nonexistant and the track used in the trailer is nowhere to be found in-game. This is also truly the weakest Link (no pun intended) that was ever created. This weakling dies in 1 hit due to ridiculous balancing and the game forces the aspect of survival onto you at all times. If I actually gave enough shits to cook stuff then the game would probably be ez, but I'd rather be actually good at the game's combat rather than cheesing my way through with items which require a lot of trial and error to even figure out the recipe to begin with. Then there's the 'realism' they added which really only brings more annoyances for me instead of helping the game. I gave up when I was near Zora's Domain and it never stopped raining so I couldn't climb. That was the turning point where I realized I don't like open world games at all, mainly because I'm nearing my 30's, have a busy lifestyle and just can't be bothered nor wowed by the concept of exploring unless it's in real life. All of this is pretty crazy if you consider that I've been buying all the Zelda games ever since I played it on NES and loved the shit out of all of them. (PH and ST can fuck off tho) Luckily, NieR: Automata was exactly what I was looking for. Tho imo not as good as the first game at least it doesn't perform a complete 180 and turns into something you don't even recognize anymore.
Spot fucking on!!! I will say though, the reason for the non-stop raining at Zora's fall, is because the Divine Beast is corrupted. After playing this game for a while, I said to myself, I actually like Skyward Sword much more, and that game was shallow. Also the killer part about all this is, between the mainline Mario & Zeldas, I absolutely love the characters, but it's beyond bullshit that we're still fighting Ganon & Bowser after all these years. GTFOH
Andromeda is my most disappointing game this gen no question.
You forgot Lords Of the Fallen.
TLG, Dragon Age Inquisition and For Honor are on the list but not Quantum Break, Akiba's Beat, Star Ocean 5, Star Fox Zero, TMNT, Legend of Korra, Assassin's Creed Unity, Titanfall (the first one), Infinite Warfare, MGS5 Ground Zeroes and/or Final Fantasy 15?
Akiba's Beat might be too new. Also, I'm not really sure anyone really expected anything from it in the first place to really be disappointed. Good call on Unity. I had forgotten what a mess that game was.
"Releasing to mixed reviews, The Order was heavily criticized for the short length of its campaign, which could be bested in an afternoon’s sitting. A lack of multi-player or any worthwhile collectibles meant that The Order was quickly forgotten about once players had stumbled through its lukewarm narrative after >>>>>>repeti tive cover shooting galore>>>>>> " Does not mention Gears of Wars (5) ... pretty much suffers/has the same "narrative-repetitive cover/duck&shoot galore" except for 2 levels and a forgettable single player campaign with it´s "Nathan drake" son of Fenix ripoff including one of the dumbest A.I of video game history (where the enemy won´t finish you off because >reasons<). The MP might have been good, but if you criticize The Order for being too repetitive because of its "repetitive cover shooting galore" apply same critique and add Gears of War 5. The Order 1886 was a much better game than Gears of War 4 or 5? with it´s - lackluster single player campaign - repetitive cover shooting galore ;) - big arenas/levels <<< tower defense gameplay <<< wave 1 <<< wave 2 <<<< wave 3 - not the best visuals imho - stupid story/plot with one companion carrying around Fenix´s (Father of the annoying Protagonist) Bandana for some unknown reason - stupid waste of time fighting off robots for 3 levels ... no conclusion to that - forgot most of the cons this game had ... it had one great level though "Gundam Level" ... check out Red Letter Media Review of the game ... Got my money back! While both are not worth the full price of $60 ... the characters, the visuals and somewhat the story of The Order 1886 were good enough for me. Ask yourself : "Would you have purchased Gears of War 4 or 5, if the game came without any multiplayer?" ;=)
Everything you listed is an opinion but you honestly say $60 for The Order was worth it but $60 for Gears 4 wasn't worth it? Measuring on a content scale, Gears has single player, coop, multiplayer/competitive online, and horde mode. The Order had a 5-6 hour campaign and that was it. I've played both games and Gears got way more time for me cause of the online aspect. I cannot disagree the campaign was lackluster but, in my opinion, I felt that way with every Gears campaign; it's the online that gives the game more bang for its buck.
>>>While both are not worth the full price of $60<<< ;=) i did not say The Order was worth the $60. I agree on the content aspect of both games. €: just saw i worded it poorly, my bad. :D
