Games That Should've Received More Hype

With all of the new games being released, especially now with all the platforms to release them on, it’s easy for an exciting title to get overlooked and lost in the masses. There's a few games that surprised G.R. Bradley at how popular they became, whereas there's others that surprised her equally. Not because they received unearned fame, but because they failed to be recognized as the amazing games they are. Let’s take a look at a few of these unfortunate titles:

Totally agree with Mario Tennis on the 3DS...this game rocks-the graphics,controls,music and mini games are all top notch,it really doesn't deserve all the low scores.

The problem with hype is that it tends to be different from what the end product is i.e.: (people mostly like to set their standards too high and end up being disappointed).

It's even worse when the opposite happens - good games go by unnoticed at all.

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn was a let down. Wasn't a terrible game, but way too straightforward and not as good as the other Golden Sun games. Doesn't deserve any more hype then it received.

Tales of the Abyss was not a remake (what the article states). It was a port. They added absolutely nothing new to the game, and that's why it doesn't deserve any hype.

Mario Tennis Open doesn't really do anything new. In fact, it removed features when compared to the other portable Mario Tennis game(RPG elements were amazing). Also, the single player tournaments didn't hold up to the console version. Adding new minigames are great, but doesn't warrant the game to be hyped up anymore then it already got.

Never played Rhapsody, so I don't know about that one.

I'm not claiming that any of those games are bad, but they definitely didn't deserve anymore hype then they got. There wasn't anything stellar about them (again, not talking about Rhapsody because I never played that one).

Well said bubble for you.

Maybe we would hear more about....oh I don't, if games journalists weren't writing so many trolling articles or trying to be financial analysts.
