Only game on this list worth saving is Cyberpunk, tbh.

Was Cyberpunk 2077 a flop though? I guess it's already sold over 15 million copies.

How many purchases were refunded?
Financially, yes a success.
Long lasting effects due to said bugs and misleading comments about performance etc are yet to be seen.

Not that I think a lot of players asked for refunds... nothing that would put a huge dent in that 15 million units number... but having a refund stamped onto a game could bleed into the “failure” title since it is not common practice in gaming.

I like the concept of this article but I don’t care about any of those games

Ya I was thinking more of games that didn't get the sales they should've. Not a bunch of AAA funded games that didn't live up to game quality expectations.

To me, all those games were flops because the developers put them out too early or had a bad economic model for them. Those are all things that should've been addressed with longer development or talking to gamers about their economic models.

To me, a game truly worth saving is an under funded game that needed to ship because that is all the developer could afford to do or a game that shipped and didn't get the sales it deserved from the gaming community. A perfect example was Titanfall 2. Really good game, lousy sales.


Godfall just needs matchmaking and animation cancels then it would be great.

Games are dying as soon as they release only shows they show have spend more time in development.

Not all the time. Sometimes a turd is a turd, no matter how much you polish it.
