Disappointment is a part of life. In fact, most things in reality are fairly disappointing which is why many people turn to video games. They're a kind of trap door that leads to a different world. In this world players get to experience a sense of value and worth not found to the same degree in the real world. As time goes by, the depravity and disappointments of the real world have begun to appear in the virtual game world that many of us find refuge.
This is a list of games that had a world of potential but the developers failed us in making a truly remarkable title worthy of the praise they've been given. Damn them.
