You hand over all your hard earned money and expect a game to be decent, right? Megabits of Gaming picks some of its biggest gaming disappointments.
He claims it was killzone 2 becaus of "warehouse grinding"?? He claims that they added a bunch of tedious sections to lenghten the game but what makes me laugh was if the game was any shorter then everyone and their mother would be b!thcing about how short it is and not worth 60 dollars blah blah blah.. Tittie babies man never satisfied...
It took me nearly twelve hours, but I have the thumbs of a 90 year old washer woman, it's probably a quicker game if you actually have decent reactions! That said, one of my gaming resolutions this year was to not bitch about game length. Portal and Split/Second have pretty much defined short, sharp, fun and doesn't outstay its welcome for me recently, and thats the ideal for now. Be as long as you like if you can maintain my interests, but if you lose my attention or pad things out to reach some magic number of gameplay hours, then you've lost me.
I honestly don't know how long killzone 2 took me to complete but I could care less.. Thats the mark of a great game, whenever you can play through a game and you enjoy it soo much that you don't even notice how long it took.. On top of that I dumped 200+ hours into the multiplayers so I got my money and then some out of it.. People are always looking for that magic combination of length, content, graphics, yadda yadda yadda to justify a purchase and for me the only thing I look for is enjoyment.. If I enjoy a game and it's not stupid short then I'm happy.. But on the same foot if a dev decides to add sections to lengthen the game then I'm fine with that as well.. I like those sections as it allows me a little time to catch my breath if you will... It's only on multiple play throughs that those sections become irksome... So I guess it's in the eye of the beholder.. My opinion is that length should never be an issue as long as its not to the detriment of the quality of the game...
The game that just missed the cut on this was Resident Evil 5, which was a huge disappointment as a Resi game, but a good enough co-op action game to get a pass. Just.
I returned both my Killzone 3 and Black Ops to the shop got almost all my money back in trade at gamestation. I got my KZ3 for £40 traded for £30 I got my Black Ops £25 traded for £23 So im happy. I'll be getting Crysis 2 tomorrow looks alot more fun than both games mentioned. Killzone 3 campaign really a let down for me and multiplayer was ok but got boring fast. Back to playing Bad company 2 on my PC. So ill wait for BF3.
Crysis 2 is pretty much the same average as both of those haha. You will be trading that in as well if you traded in the others.
Hate these lists. They're always, and will never be more than the product of a personal opinion (unless there's some voting process behind it, but even that will be influenced by some more than others), and this kind of lists belongs on forums.
yeah to say Bayonetta is a button basher is fairly brainless .You can button bash in fact but that's like saying a Chess master can randomly move each of his pieces- doesn't mean he expects to play well or artfully this way The fun comes from learning the art of Bayonetta and then applying that for maxinum satisfaction.He likely played it on easy as well and that of course means auto combos where you can literally press just the one button- great for players that are initially daunted by the extra combat layers and want to see what's possible from Bayonetta's moveset
WORST ARTICLE EVER. He seriously put Bayonetta on that list. The fucking brilliant Bayonetta!!! Just because he sucks at the game doesn't mean he should hate on it. The reason it's so critically acclaimed is because it's GOOD.
Moron 1: Hey we suck as a web site, were getting no money what should we do. Moron 2: Hmmmmm, I know a guaranteed way of gettin clicks. Put a image of a AAA much loved game whith the head line Big gaming disappointments next to it. Moron 1: Your right, make it happen. Now lets go back to mine and jump on a bag of kittens.
See many ads on the site, do you? You don't have to agree with the list, in fact it would defeat the point of making a list if everybody already knew what would be on it, but at least respect the intention to entertain.
@ MrDead - lol, very well constructed argument. Well done you. It ain't about making money or getting clicks - it's about stimulating discussion. Not everyone will agree with all the choices but hey. And no kittens were harmed in the writing of this article!
So a picture of one of the biggest fps out with the headline "Big gaming disappointments" has noting to do with getting clicks? Why not put a picture of a sad/disappointed face up
@Mr Dead - mmm, good point about the sad face - will bear that in mind for next time!!! The choice of Killzone 2 pic, however, was because it was one of the games listed in the article about "Big Gaming Disappointments" so it seemed wholly appropriate.
Your only complant for killzone is "so why is it on this list? Mainly because the several hours of really enjoyable gameplay are largely preceded by and in some cases broken up with some fairly tedious warehouse grinds" You dont go into any detail for this argument, which warehouse grinds? The main part of the artical is about Mad World, so why not have an image of that game? Killzone takes up the the least amount space on the page but its the focus of the headline. It seems that its only there because a negative headline next to killzone on n4g is a click generator.
I don't see the purpose of these kinds of lists. Your disappointments AREN'T my disappointments, and when you list stuff people weren't disappointed in, you spark controversy. For me personally, I rather enjoyed Halo 3: ODST, sure, I got it for free, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't have enjoyed it more if it had been $40 at retail launch. As for Black Ops, sure, it was overhyped, but come on people, how many FPSs have you played that dealt with brainwashing and COUNTER-Brainwashing? Yeah, very few, if any at all.
Well...that list is crap. ODST, KZ2, and FF13 should not be on that list. Timeshift is really fun but could have been better.
I mostly agree with the list aside from Killzone 2 and Bayonetta. That was a shocker. Bayonetta has the best combat in the hack and slash genre, but everything else that makes it a game completely sucks. Terrible plot, voice acting, protagonist, recycled boss fights, and that damn Jpop trash playing on repeat. Then there's the endless loading (should have picked up the 360 version but the controller sucks for non shooters) every time you picked up an object or paused the game. What's shocking about Bayo making the list is the fact that it's not a AAA title and was never expected to be a blockbuster. K2 was an excellent game. I don't even remember going into a single warehouse, but I do remember battling through Pyrrhus City and that was bad ass. I'm on the fence with ODST. The actual game was fine, but the price was not. I refuse to pay full price for a game that's half new and half rehash and damn sure wont pay for maps I already own on a completely different game. Any other franchise would be crucified for doing something like that. What killed ODST for me was what could have been. Imagine running around New Mumbasa in a huge multiplayer slayer match. That would be awesome, but sadly, the game had no competitive multiplayer. Very disappointing.
Okay, this guy apparently thought Madworld and Bayonetta were supposed to be serious business mature games. That alone tells me something is wrong with him. Some of the entries are okay, but no Lair? Red Steel? Other M? I can understand someone thinking Madworld is mediocre, but those were WAAY more disappointing.
I have to say playstation move heros. I got it only to be left in tears its that bad and i was all hype for it.
