For me GOW 4. Actually I was waiting for gruesome, horrifying and exciting masterpiece but it proved to be a generic, monotonous and dull FPS for me.

InTheLab2321d ago

It's also GeoW4 . GoW4 comes out next next year 🤔

I know right? Just like that RTS called Forza 6. Damn, I hate those games. MS even came out with the dating sim named Halo 5.

XanderZane2320d ago

Gears of War 4 was fine for me compared to the other disasters on the list. probably the 5 worst games on the list are:
1. No Man's Sky
2. The Order 1886
3. ReCore
4. Dead Rising 4
5. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5

Some games like The Last Guardian, Destiny, Halo 5 & Gears 4 shouldn't even be on the list.

I'm shocked Dragon Age Inquisition was on there. I did pick it up a bit later, but I never really heard mixed thoughts on it.

XanderZane2320d ago

I actually enjoyed Dragon Age Inquisition for what it was worth. It wasn't perfect, but I could easily find other worse games to replace it on this list.

No man sky should be higher up this list

Microsoft, EA, Activision, and Ubisoft. What a shock. The mass creators of digital vomit.

You do realize that the most played games on both the PS and XB are from Activision, EA and Ubisoft.

aaronaton2320d ago

Yeh and sheep are retarded...Whats your point?

Rachel_Alucard2320d ago

And you know a crappy chick-flick is sitting at #2 at the box office with a 37% rotten tomato score made $19,542,248?

Rambokind2320d ago

If you're a Patriot's fan, then you should also know that cheaters do win sometimes.

corroios2321d ago

Sorry but The Last Guardian isnt.

The biggest Disappointing of This Generation is the lack of new I.P. and broken games at launch, tryng to sell old games as new ones and so on.

Deep-throat2321d ago

Have you played Titanfall, Bloodborne, Nioh or For Honor? Awesome new IPs.

morganfell2321d ago

I'll give you a star on all of them except For Honor. Titanfall 2 is so underrated it is ridiculous. And that's just the SP Campaign.

DaFeelz2321d ago (Edited 2321d ago )

Titanfall is not underrated, critically it was well received, but it is most certainly under appreciated. An excellent game, sent out to die, by a poor choice in a release date.

buttcheeks2320d ago

There has been a few good new IP this gen but not a lot from major publishers like dead space , mass effect, BioShock, skate etc etc games that shake things up from the previous gen

Imalwaysright2321d ago

Right there with you on the broken games and personally I would have to say the continuous stagnation of AAA games. The only AAA game that to me truly is next gen and inovated is Shadow of Mordor with its awesome Nemesis system and I'm surprised that that awesome mechanic wasn't borrowed by other studios.

InTheLab2321d ago

I know the game is beloved here on N4g but I couldn't bring myself to pay money for the Order. Reading about it before it released had me pumped. Reading about it after release was something else all together...

CocoaBrother2321d ago

The game is graphically amazing but in my opinion, it was dull and way too short. I beat the game in 5 hours and even 100% in that time.

I do think a sequel can do it some justice, similar to the sequels of Assassin's Creed and Watch_Dogs being better than the original.

GTgamer2321d ago

The order is my biggest disappointment it hurts because I could see the potential

ShwaaMan2320d ago

The Order had so much potential. It had that co-op Gears of War feeling(but better) from the trailers and it is not what I expected. No co-op, no character progression, no replay value etc... it basically had none of the things I thought it would from the trailers... besides really cool graphics.
I'm hopeful they give the series EIN more chance to pull off an Assassins Creed 2(still arguably the best in the series along with Black Flag, those two stand apart).

callahan092320d ago

I would place the Order as my biggest disappointment as well. I even bought the big collector's edition with the statue because I was a fan of the developer's PSP games, and I thought it looked awesome, but it was just not very fun. There were far too many cutscenes and too much exposition but I didn't find the story to be very well-told or interesting, and the gameplay seemed like an afterthought and it was too broken up with interruptions for the mediocre story. It was a struggle to get to the end for me, personally. I even liked Knack haha, but The Order just didn't do it for me.

ocelot072321d ago

I completed The Order in about 3 hours and about 5 hours in total to get the platinum trophy. The single player was decent and the gameplay was ok. But I was disappointed because it was so short. I really got into the story and then it just ended. I wanted more I can only hope a sequel will release some day.

morganfell2321d ago

I played through The Order and platinumed it. I took my time to explore everything, read everything. I consider myself a decently skilled gamer. There is no way that was done in 5 hours.

We would all like great games to be longer. But the story was so well handled and fused with history (long time fan of the Rani of Jhansi), the combat was tight, the characters interesting, and yes it was a graphical powerhouse. It remains for me one of the best titles of this generation.

What The Order did suffer from was what I call the Heavenly Sword effect. This is a reference to what occurred with Heavenly Sword. HS was a game formerly in development for the Xbox. Redmond dropped it, and Sony stepped in. When the game arrived Ninja Theory had pushed the envelope in several areas, particularly performance capture with the help and direction of Andy Serkis. But all anyone could say was the game was linear (as if that is a mortal sin) and the game was terribly short. There were claims of 4 hours in some cases. I actually timed myself and easily hit double digits. Since then, the short linear tag seems to be a method of propaganda for dealing with titles certain persons view as a threat.

CocoaBrother2321d ago

I know how fast I beat the game cause I did it all in one sitting. 7am-12pm April 19th. How do I know exactly? Cause I'm looking at my PSNProfile and it tracks when I started and completed the game. 4 hours and 25 minutes according to trophy tracking.

Games don't take my long personally. Digimon: Cyber Sleuth also comes to mind. People were saying it took them 100 hours to 100%. Took me 65. How fast a person completes a game varies from person to person; don't say you know for a fact I didn't do it.
