Disappointments of 2010

2010 was a good and bad year for sequels. Gamers had high hopes for Gran Turismo 5, Bioshock 2, Dead Rising 2, Fable III, Fallout New Vegas. Most of these games struggled to deliver the amazing experience that their predecessor set up. Whether it was from buggy game play, tacked on multiplayer or endless delays, these games lacked a wow factor

Fable 3 was on the top of my list.

Good to see someone had similar feelings, what did you dislike the most?

DenyTheFacts2700d ago (Edited 2700d ago )

LOL are you stupid or what.. He wanted to know the thing you disliked the most IN FABLE 3..

CaptainPunch2700d ago

Lol never mind then. Too be honest Fable 3 was boring and buggy.

Blaze9292700d ago (Edited 2700d ago )

I'd go with:

Crackdown 2
Alan Wake (its ending)
God of War 3 (its ending)
Assassins Creed: Brotherhood (felt like a pointless game)
BioShock 2
Final Fantasy 13
Def Jam Rapstar
Splinter Cell: Conviction
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
Metro 2033
Just Cause 2
Dante's Inferno

whew...played a lot of games in 2010

Hazmat132700d ago

how was Metro 2033 bad????

WildArmed2700d ago

hmm, these games met my expectations (note: MY expectations, not the media's stupid hype)
I disagree w/ the follwing:
Crackdown 2: it was a fun game, it took it for what is was... mindless open world game

GoW3: while they ending did leave me wanting more, I think it was necessary to cont. on the story

AC:B: The gameplay is why I wasn't disappointed in this.
I absolutely loved AC:B SP, much better than AC2/AC1. MP sucked thou, and so did the story for the most part.

FF13: I'm not going to go into this, I've wrote paragraphs about it.. either way, I enjoyed the game

SC:C: Great game, imo. Fast paced action game.. game felt very rewarding for pulling off stealth kills. It was a much better sequel compared to double agent.

Metro 2033: I liked the game.. at this point.. not sure why ;)

Rest i agree w/... ESP. PoP:TFS

Biggest disappointment... FF13... played for 3-4 hours and just left it. Some people said it gets better after 10 hours, but i wasn't willing to find out.

As for Fable 3... It wasn't a GOTY contender, but was quite good. I don't understand why people hate it so much. It was better then Fable 2.

TheDivine2700d ago

I was disapointed in ff13 but overall it was still a great game. I was very disapointed in bioshock 2, it was totally average in every way. Pesonally i loved alan wake and fable 3, two of my favorite games ever. Fable 3 disapointed me in lack of expressions but the story, quests, and graphics made up for it. I didnt appreciate the graphic upgrade until i went back to fable 2 and realized how great 3 looks. One of my fav franchises.

BigPenguin2700d ago

It gets better after 10 hours, because the fight system opens up a bit more, but the game does not become good until 30-35 hours in.

For me it was FF13 I was so excited when it first came out, but I found it so boring I'am yet to finish it even though I hear the ending is awesome.

Oh and Black Ops, it was the game I was most looking foward to and... Well the rest is obvious.

Biggest surprise:Heavy Rain I had so little hope for that game that I rented it. I've rented it 4 times already and plan to do once more :]

kube002700d ago

Yea I got stuck in Heavy Rain. I had heard bad things about FF13.

Brewski0072700d ago

Gotta agree about ff13. As a big final fantasy fan I Was so hyped for it... and while it looked good graphicaly it was just so limited in what it could have been. Definately my biggest disappointment on 2010... if not this console generation.

dkgshiz2700d ago

Fable 3 was pretty mediocre for me. Crackdown 2 was just awful.

MoreRPG2700d ago

disappointments of 2010
bioshock 2 and final fantasy 13

the first bioshock is my favorite game of this generation but the sequel wasnt really an improvement over the first one

final fantasy 13 well the game was too linear and didnt like the battle system

guigsy2700d ago

Bioshock Infinite should've been Bioshock 2.

gamingdroid2700d ago

Bioshock 2 was a big let down for me. It was a great game, but it just didn't measure up to the expectation I had come to expect because of Bioshock 1.

spunnups2700d ago

Bioshock 2 had better gameplay, but everything else was a step back from the first. Bioshock 1 will remain supreme until Bioshock:Infinite arrives. I think it will be a heavy cotender for GoTY whenever it releases.

kube002700d ago

Crackdown 2, I had forgotten about that wonderful game
