Kind of liking this list, don't about God of War but the others I can agree with
Especially FF13-2, Resident evil ORC and MW3
Im not entirely sold yet on ffxiii-2 as I still hold out hope that they heard us. Ive read many previews and this is the first that mentions the continued linearity. Also, if the graphics are still identical, they wouldnt b outdated. Nonetheless, I will remain skeptical and wont buy day 1. Otherwise, I agree, but my hopes are piqued for dead island also.
"Microsoft has been saying forever that the Kinect is for the core audience just as much as it is for the casual audience. Oh how wrong Microsoft was." It's a shame they didn't create a version for Move. It would have been better suited for that then Kinect. Ah well. And the number one spot goes to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3! Antiquated graphics and horrible lag, who can resist that!?
silent hill should be on that list, instead of Dead island
FF13-2 is not looking good at all. Even if the game isn't linear it won't help much with the battle system and tacked on quick time events. I personally liked FF12, but a lot of people don't and that game wasn't linear. So the same will happen with FF13-2. There was two things that I hated about FF-13 the most. And those two things needed to be change/removed in order for me to want to buy FF13-2. The the two things I hated were the battle system and the linearity. The battle system seems to be the same crap that was in FF13 with a little changes to it. Enemies seem to come out of no where and then you have the chance to do a preemptive strike and then you go on to the battle screen. I hate this with a passion. Square-Enix should have just either leave it random encounter like the traditional FF games or make it real time battles like Kingdom Hearts or the way FFvs13 seems to look like. I prefer real time battles. It looks like FF13-2 is made for those that like FF13. It appeats that those that hated FF13 and are looking for redemption from Square-Enix it isn't going to happen sadly. On the flip side FFvs13 is looking like it'll be solid though.
this is tough... but MW2 was so bad, I'd put it in the 2011 most disappointing game list anyway!
I know this article is their opinion but I have to disagree about Dead Island and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.
MW3 has a sort of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality going on behind it, and certainly makes it easy to make a new title every year. However, if they took their time to work on their projects seriously, instead of trying to milk the living hell out of it, they wouldn't be falling behind so much. I don't think anyone was surprised by MW3's showing at E3. Everyone knows exactly what to expect from it, and with the momentum that Battlefield 3 is building, it may be the year that CoD is finally dethroned.
Are we talking score-wise or sales-wise? Because I'm pretty sure that MW3 will dominate in the sales department...again. BF3 could be 10x better and people would still buy MW3 based solely on the franchise name. It's quite sad but very true.
But it also can do an avatar, even though avatar didn't sell a lot compare to like priates on their first weekend it can sell much a better rate over time.
The only thing I care about here is XIII-2 (Dead Islad: maybe, but I'm so burned out on zombies). And I'm wondering where they saw it was still linear in what? A 15 minute demo? Yep, more than enough time to decide.
If they got the linearity part from the demo, then it's probably in the same boat as fable. Like fable showing only on rails stuff and then after saying it's not all on rails, they probably should have showed more areas where you can explore instead a linear demo. Sure it may not completely represent the finished game, but if you're trying to show off your game saying you learned from the mistakes you made with XIII, why show more linear crap?
Here's what I need to know: What was linear? They show you some storyline-related gameplay and that's enough to convince you it's linear?
The game are not even out
It's a trolling article. That's all there is to it.
Yep it is.
"Last year’s Hot Pursuit felt like a much needed adrenaline injection to the franchise. Now the rains are being shifted back into the hands of EA’s Black Box studio..." "Now the rains are being shifted back..." "the rains" >:C
Well I had hands on with the God of War Collection at E3 and I can agree with the article. I'm still gonna buy it because they're both fantastic games and I want that complete God of War collection on my PS3. Unfortunately, from what I played (which may still be an unfinished version) lacked the lighting and textures of the GOW 1&2 Collection on the PS3. For games that were originally on the PSP, they looked great. For games that have to stand up to other PS3 versions in the franchise... not so much. I was really excited for this release, but playing them at E3 was a bit of a letdown.
Gears of war 3
Everything Kinect related.
I do not know what convention you were at but Modern 3 looked great and had a huge crowd and a giant ovation after their presentation. Just trying to make a name by bashing Modern 3 and then crying as it sets another sales record.
I was agreeing with the article up until the #1 pick was mad and thought to myself, "this is the dumbest thing I ever heard". First off when he said, "COD would have to compete with heavy hitters like Battlefield, Halo, Assassins Creed & Skyrim" This is COD we are talking about. How many 10's of millions of copies has this game sold? There's people that still play the multiplayer of Modern Warfare 2 by the thousands and play Black Ops by the millions. COD is the competition right now and i'm not even a COD fan and I realize this. Companies postpone their games cause they are scared to have it go up again COD. So I kinds agree with alot of what he was saying up until #1 then he just lost his mind.
There's far too many games coming out right around Nov. 8th to say that anyone's scared.
From a real gamers perspective and not the millions of casual sheep that wouldn't know a quality game if it smacked them in the face, most cod games have been a huge disappointment this gen. You can talk about sales all you want, all I care about is quality and cod is not it.
You have to remember these are early builds, but imo theres no way in hell MW3 will improve.
For me: Dead Island not at all representative what the amazing trailer was about. And another (not on this list) That the remastered splinter cell trilogy collection will not have the multiplayer included. It pains me to even write it.
I disagreed with most of these, but it's a reasonable list anyway.
Good List, I have to agree with Fable: The Journey, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Dead Island and LotR: War in the North.
Wow, it's like I'm really on /v/... *puts a gun to my head*
I still hold a lot of hope for Dead Island because from some of the things I've read it could be interesting even though I do see that the fantastic trailer has very little to actually do with the game play. After seeing a lot of MW3 in action all I can say is I see why it's #1 on this list. Activision milking much?
Nice to see at least one gaming website that isn't in Activision's pocket and speak the truth about the Call of Duty franchise. Disappointed to hear Dragon's Dogma isn't looking too good. At least it is a ways off so there is plenty of time to create something excellent. I think I will enjoy Dead Island. I did not have the same expectations the writer seemed to have. Many other websites and publications spoke very highly of it. Everything else was to be expected.
We are not in anyones pocket. I saw Modern 3 up close and I am telling you it looks great. The trailers are not the game, I have seen the game in action and as a fan of the series it answered any concerns I had.
Sorry...you are not telling me anything. MW3 is a carbon copy of the previous games with tweaks here and there. A handholding 4 hour campaign and multiplayer that caters to the casual audience. A MP that will feature less maps than previous games only to charge you for them later. They will put those maps out in groups of 3 four times in the hope to charge you the exact same price as the full retail game. It is Activision's goal to squeeze $120 out of each game. Oh...don't forget that Elite garbage...you know the feature they blatantly stole from Halo. Except Bungie's version is more robust and doesn't require a subscription. I won't bother talking about the dated engine, hacks and glitches that go unfixed, dated animations, poor weapon ballistics ect. So sorry...you are not telling me anything. You like the game? Great...good for you. Tear it up! Don't get your panties in a bunch when others do not. Are you that desperate to gain approval for what you like or justify your purchasing behavior?
Why dont you wait until you see the final finsihed game before making your decision or is it to much to ask you to be fair and objective and wait for the final build?
For the record, I am media, I do not need to buy it I get one sent to me. I have seen it, I have played it and I liked what I said. Unline you though, I will wait until I play the final game to reserve my judgement on it.
i dunno about dragon dogma i didn't anything to be worried about it's an action game in medieval setting by a team that know how to make action games . With co-op and if it has lenght this could be a real treat
ghost recon future soldier...
Whaaat? That was my favorite game I played at E3 besides SFxT.
looks like crap, farcry 3 was my favorite game i seen there. You play SF and Tekken, that right there tells me you get excited over nothing : P
Resident Evil isn't about action, it's about scares and suspense. Capcom needs to make a new Resident Evil game in the style of Revelations, but for consoles. Also, they need to add the ability to move while aiming. If they just did that then they'd have a perfect Resident Evil game. Operation Raccoon City looks terrible. I'm sick of games abandoning scares and suspense in favor of a "four player co-op" bullet point on the back of the box.
I just see this resident evil as a spin off, it's not supposed to be taken as a real game in the series. It's a squad based co op shooter with a resident evil theme - which isn't a bad premise when you take it for what it is, instead of expecting it to live up to the franchise expectations.
People who're hyped for MW3 think about cod 4 for a second and then just listen to the name "modern warfare 3" yeah you see something very epic and innovative in your head right? but as we all know activision are money whores and the cod games after cod 4 has all been slightly modified cod 4s. Please don't support the mediocrity! there comes a time when we gamers must go against shitty devs & publishers.

I don't get the FFXIII-2 hate, it's the same thing that happened after FFXIII. Although I wasn't at E3, do people really expect it to be that much of an upgrade? I know plenty of people that enjoyed the first game, of course it might not live up to previous games in some aspects, but in other ways it does. And it's still better than 90% of the games out there in terms of graphics and production values. It just seems that people want JRPGs dead for whatever reason, the ones this gen really aren't that bad - don't listen to the critics really.
XIII-2 isn't even out yet. Neither is Modern Warfare 3. How are they disappointing games? This article is full of fail... Let's just hope that these games don't disappoint us.
Maybe they were at E3 and got invited to play those games at special screenings. Lots and Lots of media types get to play unreleased games at E3.
Also many games were playable on the E3 convention floor.
Most of the big games were not allowed to be played we were shown a demo of designers playing them.
"Maybe they were at E3 and got invited to play those games at special screenings" what you said is just speculation. doesn't mean they actually played any of those games and i doubt they did.
Trolling article. Nothing new.
SSX with it's simple white mountains resembling Shaun White Snowboarding and missing the whole point of the SSX series. Yeah anyone else think this game is looking too clean? The colorful moody atmosphere of SSX Tricky and SSX3 seems to be gone. Where’s the neon and night time stages? The long crazy rails to grind on. The fireworks going off for godsake! Where’s a stage like the Tokyo Megaplex for example? Their focus seems to be you and the dangerous mountain. I see characters and dangerous white powered mountains. That’s about it. Where’s the colorful pizzazz and crazy style of the SSX we know and love? This new SSX is looking boring so far. I hope I’m wrong though. Oh and boo to an open world in SSX! It’s what I disliked the most about SSX3. The stages got lost in the open world mountain. There was no individuality in the stages. They all got mixed together and looked alike. I like individual stages that I have to unlock. That have their own style and personality. I guess I’m old skool. Oh and boo to an open world in SSX! It’s what I disliked the most about SSX3.

We don't care about the mountain as much as we care about snowboarding over crazy obstacles. Give us craziness! At this point I want a sequel to SSX Tricky or an HD remix or even better an all out remake!
Out of the games I've bought - 1.Homefront 2.Crysis 2 3.Alice:Madness Returns Games I wanted to buy,but I was disappointed by their reviews - 1.Duke Nukem Forever 2.Shadow Of The Damned
