Games On Net: The Most Disappointing Games of the Decade

Games On Net writes "One of the major problems of our industry is that expectations are often blown out of proportion due to the inability of the media to give negative previews. 95% of the coverage of any given title is glowing pre-release coverage, while the remainder is usually the realistic critical assessment that actually tells you whether a game is good or not. As a result, disappointment is all too common." (Culture)

I don't agree about Black & White. I belong to the kind of people that found Fable a bit overhyped but good and Fable 2 disappointing and extremely overhyped, so I'm not a Lionhead fanboy. But B&W was quite good. Even if it was a bit glitchy, it had a good concept, great animations and really fine gameplay. Playing such game only with the mouse was quite ingenious, especially when current games use 20 keyboard shortcuts.

It's even B&W that got me into the RTS genre with Homeworld.

You gotta admit: this list is far more informed and balanced than most lists. Most lists just throw down Lair, Too Human, Haze, and a couple other games. This list actually lists games from almost every platform (although I don't totally agree with every entry on the list).
