The Top Five Most Disappointing Games of 2008

From the article: "There's still a small (and rather unpleasant) step that has to be made now, just to make it easier for everybody to understand that huge budgets and obscene amounts of advertising are not the only things needed for a game to be considered a success. Because, as you will see, we will not talk about unknown, indie or low budget productions - we're talking about products that we, as gamers, considered "smoking hot prospects" when they were announced. But we were proved wrong."

I wish i can see the droids faces when after 2009 hits and you will see the 2009 disappointing games hehe

Panthers3281d ago

At least there are PS3 games coming out... cant think of 1 360 game besides Halo Wars that is worth playing.

Keele3281d ago

I don't know how you see it that way because compared to Suckstation 3 games even Too Human is worth playing.

TheMART3281d ago

Well

360 - 130 games on or over 8 out of 10 average, 17 games on or over 9 out of 10 average

PS3 - 84 games on or over 8 out of 10 average, 9 games on or over 9 out of 10 average

I can't think out of any other reason then Little Big Planet to pay 400 Euro and get less, compared to the 360 for 200 Euro and get the better gaming machine, with more great games and the best online service.

It's that simple.

Magic_The_Celt3281d ago

Like LittleBigPlanet

you ALL said it would be a flop

and now? its the highest rated exlusive on Metacritic hahahaha OWNED

Disapointing? dude, MGS4 + LBP how can you call THAT disapointing given how amazing they where

If anything id say 08 was disapointing for the 360

its still 2008 and we can already count off blockbusters on and fill a hand

Pitty the 360 cant say the same.

GiantEnemyLobster3281d ago

#1) HAZE
#2) Lair
#3) LittleBIGflop
#4) Resistance 2
#5) Motorstorm pacific rift

God those games were horrific.

Haze

i thought you learnt this in your special school?

GiantEnemyLobster3281d ago (Edited 3281d ago )

Go back to 1.4 to see how you spelled 'exclusive', 'were', and 'pity'. Good job on owning yourself there buddy.

That one is not mentioned in the article, you should learn to READ

Second:

Too Human average review 6.5 out of 10

Haze average review 5.5. out of 10

Don't forget that other great PS3 exclusive, Genji also 5.5 out of 10

THE GIANT ENEMY CRAB

Plus, Killzone 1 got rated close to Too Human. Guess thats a bad game also? Which also means if Killzone 2 is great, Too Human 2 could be great also I guess.

Too bad for you

FOTY 2007: Lair
FOTY 2008: HAZE

Magic_The_Celt3281d ago

Except MART

Too Human had -WAY- more hype, and was spouted to be this amazing ground shattering RPG for the 360

I mean my god, 10 years, LMFAO TEN YEARS?!?!

thats just embarrassing beyond belief, and i don't recall the developers or Sony trying to say it was AMAZING after it flopped?

HAHA remember Too Human? the developer having a hissy fit and crying about it was awesome and its all our faults for not recognizing its awesomeness

We all know the Flop of Too Human got way more attention than the Flop of Haze

Shane Kim3281d ago (Edited 3281d ago )

lol at the mart. You mean like Two Worlds wich was hyped beyond belief and end up with 5.0 on metacritics? But if it is of any comfort Mart, at least there is a sequel coming up in 09.

And what is even more mind numbing is your logic that if KZ1 and Too Human have a similar score, Too Human will be a great game if KZ2 get high reviews. I mean WTF?! I fail to see any logic in that sentence at all.

Then we have other Flops as: Bomberman 34 on Meta
Last Remnant 66 on Meta
Ninety-Nine Nights 61 om Meta
Lost Odyssey 79 on Meta

The list could go on but I've made my point. Xbox 360 has more flops than it has RROD.

Xbox is the BEST3281d ago (Edited 3281d ago )

the problem. Every PS3 exclusive gets hyped by the droids as the killer of the 360. You can't deny the hype Haze was getting on this board.

Fable 2 is easily my biggest disappointment...It was a solid game that I played through to the end, but it didn't deliver what I was expecting at all. It was too short, even with doing all the available extra missions, I beat it in 15 or so hours, which is ridiculous for an RPG. The story was crap, they jobs were tedious and boring, the lack of customization, especially after the first one, was disappointing as well. And don't get me started on the fact that you couldn't die.

Monchichi0253281d ago

Are you nuts!!!!! Fable 2 was incredible; don't know what game you played! That's why it's won some Game of the Year awards and is in everyone's top candidates!

But whatever, there's always haters....and you my friend are one of them!

Mr Marbles3281d ago

Fable 2 was pretty solid, your nuts.

Toolster3281d ago

You cant call him a hater just because he felt it was not the game it should have been. everyone has games they love and hate that other ppl will hate and love.

shovelbum3281d ago

I actually had a pretty good time with mercs 2 especially in co-op. Haze is just horrible and I was one who was looking forward to the title but after a few minutes I wondered why it was even released in its current condition.

N2NOther3281d ago

I do know what game I played...It was Fable 1.5. I love RPGs and Fable 2 was just an incredibly dumbed-down version of one. It lacked the depth of a truly great RPG like Fallout 3 or a Final Fantasy. I had fun with it, but considering the hype and the scores and my expectations, the fact that it failed to measure up makes the game a huge disappointment. See, just because I didn't LOVE the game, doesn't mean I hated it, it just means I was, get this, DISAPPOINTED. Sucks, I know.

ThanatosDMC3280d ago

Pretty much Haze for me. I was looking forward to it till i downloaded and played the demo. Textures were blurry and all the weapons were just lame. No promises fulfilled.

I can't wait for Resident Evil 5! I hope the Mercenary mode is also co-op or something with other players.

SL1M DADDY3280d ago

They took a pretty cool concept and ruined it with lousy game mechanics. If only Infinity Ward had their way with the game it might have turned out great.

Bnet3433281d ago

The games that come to my mind are Haze and Too Human for 2008. As for me I didn't really buy any games I was disappointed in.

SRU96003281d ago

Too Human was one of my top 5 games of 2008.

Despite the MASSIVE amount of bad press it received (I still maintain that most of that bad press came from people that hate Denis Dyack) I had an absolute blast playing it.

I think I put about 60 or 70 hours into it before I grew tired of it.

Too Human "2" will be a day one purchase for me.

Mr Marbles3281d ago

was also a solid game, people just hated on it to prove some stupid point. Great fun once you started playing the game, and that is all that matters.

ASTAROTH3281d ago

...that for Xbox 360 fanatics every game released for their beloved console is solid, but everygame for the PS3 is a flop!!! . Hmmm!! I respect your opinions but respect others opinions.
