COGconnected: 2018 has been a year of highly anticipated announcements and sequels, but they haven't all been gems. Here are the top 10 disappointing games of 2018.
Can we even really call Radical Heights a game, was more like an egotistical experiment gone wrong.
Quantum Break was the most disappointing game of the entire gen imo. I thought it would be incredible, and it turned out to be absolute garbage.
Too late to edit, just realized the article was about 2018. In that case it is DEFINITELY Sea of Thieves. So much hype, so little game.
Radical Heights was bad, but had nowhere near the hype that Sea of Thieves had. Sea of Thieves is BY FAR the most disappointing game of 2018. I honestly can't believe that this "game" was hyped as much as it was.
I can it was Microsoft’s only major game so they had to hype something ;)
Each to their own but Metal Gear Survive is one of my best this year so far. Maybe because im not on the F Konami bandwagon, or a over paid youtube celeb wanabe that only played less than an hour to make an opinion that it is too hard for them.
No. Sorry, but no. Metal Gear Survive is crap. What exactly do you like about the game??
The being different part about liking it ..
@prettygoodgamer Was that even a reply to my comment? I honestly don't understand what you're trying to say.
Prettygood is suggesting that GamesMaster is only saying they like the game to be different.
What so i have to blindly follow the sheep and hate the game because it's the cool kid thing ?. I'm sorry but NO, i really enjoyed every hour i put into it. Each of us like different games.
What exactly don't you like about the game?? What's your achievement/trophy %??
You don't need to be any of those to not like the game.
Id add, Detroit Become Human Mario Tennis
What was disappointing about Detroit? It was a David Cage game, and honestly did pretty well for a David Cage game. I thought it was much better than Beyond, and even liked it better than Heavy Rain.
The controls were clunky... basically my biggest gripe. Agreed tho, it was his best effort
@painted I don't disagree that the controls were clunky, but this would be obvious if you've played the previous QD games. I agree that the controls could be better, but overall I enjoyed the game.
I didnt pay 60$$ i rented it on gamefly, beat it, and returned it. You shouldnt automatically assume someone paid full price for a game... hell i could have rented it from redbox for 3 days and paid 9$
Detroit was amazing wtf kinda drugs are you on ?
Not every game is going to be for everyone... you loved it, good for you.
If you played detroit and expected a fps experience then i have bad news for you
@paintedgamer Why on earth would you pay $60 for a game that you KNEW you wouldn't like? Detroit is the exact same type of game as Beyond and Heavy Rain, but better. What exactly were you expecting? Not hating, just wondering?
What i'm trying to say is, those who buy cage's games already know what they are in for. You can't go in expecting something different, BUT if you liked one of his previous work and hated this one, you might have an argument. Also i would appreciate it if you can leave my tits out of this, they did you nothing wrong
I’ll add “Sony exclusive” since the list has 2 Xbox exclusives.
There was nothing disappointing about detroit. Maybe it was disappointing from a hater's perspective (hence why you want to add it), because the game turned out to be fantastic.
You had high hopes for cardboard? Lmao It entertained who it appeals to and didn’t entice people who it didn’t appeal to. Idk how it can be disappointed in it
LMAO I know right.. it's not like they went out of their way to Hype it up, bill it as the next great game or anything like that. It's just a cool little side endeavor that they did and nothing more. Where is you have VR that people won't keep trying to hype to the high heavens that isn't really doing shit in the industry. And that WAS actually hyped to hell and back and defended tooth and nail. Though to be fair they are talking about 2018, but just using that as an example. You're trying too hard if you're had high hopes for or was disappointed with Labo. As most of us damn sure we're not expecting much from it. Especially us supposedly informed gamers that log into message boards and such And those that work interested in it saw what it was fairly quickly as it wears no real smoking mirrors about it .
LABO should honestly be number 1, how is cardboard supposed to to make any noise in the video game industry?
LABO is cardboard, I don't think that anybody on this website considers it as a serious game.
I saw someone on here say "Labo is LITERALLY better than God of war". An actual person said that LOL LOL LMAO.
Will I agree with all except Metal Gear Survive, that game was clearly stated as zombie non Sneak or Boss or even Raiden relevant story and not even a something that is like a enjoyable spin off with great gameplay, it the same MGS5 with zombie mod.
1 Radical Heights 2 Sea of Thieves 3 Shaq Fu 4 State of Decay 2 5 Metal Gear Survive 6 Agony 7 Attack on Titan 2 8 Lego Incredibles 9 Extinction 10 Labo Thats the list, I didn't get any of those games.
I almost wanna buy LEGO Incredibles because my kids enjoy LEGO games but I haven't brought them to the movies yet to watch the movie for them to even appreciate the franchise enough for them to care to even play the game. so...maybe later
There's a bunch of cheap Lego games you could get them like Lego Marvel or Avengers for example.
@Chevalier I'm a sucker for LEGO games on all platforms. name it and I'm pretty sure I have it. the only games I don't have left are the LoTR and Hobbit ones because I'm not a fan of that franchise.
ITT: a bunch of games no one expected to be any good.
I was hoping State of Decay 2 would be really good and not a buggy piece of garbage with awful co-op.
But was anyone actually thinking Metal Gear Survive would be good?
Nope cash grab from Konami now they fired the main influence of the entire series I’m sorry but a metal gear game without Hideo is basically umbrella corps of the rest franchise... utter dribble
No Fatal Bullet? No Seven Deadly Sins? No New Gundam Breaker? No Final Fantasy Dissidia NT? No Conan Exiles? No Dynasty Warriors 9? No Inpatient? No Bravo Team? No Fear Effect Sedna? No The witch and the hundred knights 2?
It wouldn’t be proper clickbait article if it wasn’t all well-known games.
2018 has been very disappointing with respect to PC games. Once again, this was the year that was supposed to be stellar. It's half over and probably the worst year I can remember.
