With a number of triple A titles releasing on consoles and PC this year, Twinfinite take a look at the six titles that are close to being dangerously overhyped.
Definitely I can see No Man's Sky as that game. There are hardly any info about it after a few glimpse of it last year from the developer. Isn't this supposed to be a Summer release this year?
No info yet overhyped? Wouldnt that be the medias and gamers fault if this game is overhyped?
Exactly my thought.
I don't understand your view. Who can overhype things if not the media and/or gamers?
My point was it wasnt the developer or the publisher that overhyped. They showed a game and then said very little. Yet if the game fails to live up to these expectations that we ourselves have elevated so high, they will be the ones who will be accused of breaking promises. Not exactly fair. It seems silly to me that someone would say theyve told us nothing about the game but its so overhyped.
@rookie bathyj said it best.. 'no info yet overhyped' So if there's hardly any info whos overhyped it? Your comment makes zero sense
I think it's pretty much a global consensus that "hype" is always something that comes from the community, not the devs Yes, devs have no control over hype, but that's what hype is
No, hype can come from devs, publishers and even platform holders. Greatest line up in Xbox history springs to mind. If you toot your own horn too much and then fail to deliver youre fair game, but when its not them doing it how can you very well turn that hype against them which seems to be what people are anticipating with NMS?
@Bathyj You always talk way too much sense to be taken seriously on N4g, lol.
The only game I agree with is No Man's Sky. It has been talked about for years now, little has been shown, few have actually played and no mention on how crafting or anything else truly works. My biggest concern though is how long will interest last for this game? Will all the planets be the same just with different skins to make it appear the creatures are unique to that planet's environment? People complain about the grind in Destiny, imagine how this grind will be with the 18 quintillion planets it supposedly has. The game sounds ridiculously ambitious, I hope it's everything they said it was and more.
They don't make the planets or creatures individually it is all created based on mathematical equations based on things like distance from a sun, gravity levels and toxins etc
Which only adds to the hype especially if the creatures are nothing special or the same are found on similar planets with maybe a color variation.
The difference is that with Destiny the grind became pointless. Sure, you can grind to get to a higher light level but why? There's nothing "new" to see, no new areas to explore that require it so it became a pointless grind. At the very least, with NMS, there will be new places to discover, randomly generated or not. Now, whether they will be compelling & worthwhile is a different story.
"Now, whether they will be compelling & worthwhile is a different story." And that is one of my main concerns. Will all solar systems have planets in the habitual zone, will those planets all have life? Will these new areas be nothing more than re-skin, then that will get old too.
I can understand your concerns. I'm not trying to invalidate them. My personal view is that, based on what I've seen, I'm placing a $60 bet that the game delivers what I want it to. I will not be placing anymore $60 bets on any new Destiny or COD games. I will just steer clear of those as they are truly boring to me. NMS has just captured my imagination. I love the ideas/concepts of the game. I just have to experience this game for myself. Not too many games I can say that about. Hopefully that experience will be memorable & compelling enough spend large amounts of time in. I'm betting it is. I will find out for sure come June 21 :)
I'll be getting this game regardless too. Everything you said to describe it is also how I feel about this game.
No Man's Sky definitely, there's so little gameplay mechanic explained for a title which supposed to come out in just a few months.
I think this is more of a perspective issue...as in WHO is doing the hyping? I don't see much media hype for NMS, although there was a great amount of coverage. However, there has been a great deal of anticipation and discussion, even articles, as to it's value, whether it will be good or not, procedural generation, etc. Generally, there seems to be more mystery, intrigue, and skepticism than hype around it at this point. (at least in the media) That's to be expected because it has gone a bit media silent. Personally, I don't get too high or too low on a game until after it's been released. Maybe that comes with age...or just the experience of getting burned getting over hyped in the past. Either way, I just take them as they come and judge them for myself.
"6 Upcoming Games That Are Becoming Dangerously Overhyped" …By People Who Have the Tendency to Do That Sort of Thing The same sort of person I saw here saying they thought Destiny would be more like No Man's Sky, because you know all the Destiny previews totally gave that impression...
Thank goodness no one here said Destiny would be more like NMS.
They did, but I'm not going to bother looking for it.
Final Fantasy XV has been in development for around 4 years....not 10. They had to redo everything from the ground up, including the engine.
so noctus from Final fantasy versus 13 isnt the same as the one from ff15? theya re still using the same story, some assets or at least concept work for reference. you make it sound like they scrapped everything, which they didn't
No but it was in preproduction for a long time and then put on hold until the re-reveal as 15 so yes the real development time has been around 4 years with having to restart but the story and a lot of the original ideas and concepts stayed surprisingly intact.
they've been working on the game for 10 years. preproduction is still working on it. it wasn't ever put on hold, just a smaller team working on aspects of it, at the time it was versus 13 a 3rd person style action sections along side the RPG elements.
*Author lists Uncharted 4* *Author crosses fingers* What a terrible article. Only NMS is possibly overhyped here. Maybe.
Step 1: Take a shot everytime n4g posts an article about no mans sky being overhyped or going to suck. Step 2: Die.
Kingdom Hearts 3 <3
No mans sky is gonna bomb so hard. i just know it.
