Most Disappointing Game of 2021

VGChartz's Christian Evans: "‘If you expect disappointment, then you can never really be disappointed’ may be the mantra to live by for MJ, but within the machinations of gaming's hype-machine we're promised the best, thus we expect the best. Of course, as if the universe expects balance, what the gaming gods give with one hand, they taketh away with another, and some endeavours inevitably fall short of our lofty expectations."

Oddworld Soulstorm for me I think.

for me it was phoenix point on PS5, got it on release day and the amount of bugs and constant crashes made the game impossible to play.....even the PS5 update released lately crashed out on me after the 1st mission i went on so quickly deleted it and will never return

This wasn't a 2021 release, but I did only play it in 2021 and it did come to PS5 and Switch in August.

The Falconeer as it released on Xbox. The voice actors all sounded the same, there was so much open space that every mission I played up to had a "Skip" button appear almost right after you'd start up. You would fly for minutes to get to the mission and the missions were all the same. Checkpoints were infrequent, the feedback didn't feel right when shooting or getting hit, and the flying just wasn't fun to me.

To date, it's the worst game I've played on Game Pass.

I have Battlefield sitting on my table from Gamefly, not even opened. Been hearing nothing but disappointment from the game.

Will probably return it and get Guardians of the Galaxy which in turn people have told me it's excellent.

Viva La Gamefly

I heard 2042 (on console) has been... not too bad. But considering how slow important updates have been taking (even according to a DICE dev), bouncing to Guardians is way more reasonable.

gangsta_red684d ago

I should just give it a whirl since I have it...but yeah, I definitely would rather just skip to GoG

Battlefield and COD Vanguard for me. Both were very disappointing.

GTA was pretty broken at launch, but I still had great fun with it, mainly for nostalgia reasons.

Who has high expectations for annual COD/BF games?

NoFanBoy684d ago

The millions of people that buy them maybe ?

coolbeans684d ago

Battlefield games aren't annual releases.

I expected much of COD Cold War since I had big hopes for an SP with 60s/70s weapons. I expected much from Vanguard and I was disappointed in the SP and MP map designs

Battlefield 2042 Update 6.2 Out Next Week, Lis Nerf Incoming

DICE has revealed that Battlefield 2042 update 6.2 is out next week! Lis nerf incoming to open up the windows for other Engineers.

Too bad the other Engineers aren't really worth using...

So this makes helihell even worse? Why? The community keeps asking for better defense against helis and the answer is: buff helis and nerf anything that harms them. They already nerfed Sundance''s grenades.

Helihell lol learn to play, there is a lot of thing you can do agains Heli.

Sadly i've already deleted it, played it for awhile but started to get bored of it.

It just does not feel like Battlefield, Lacking destruction, maps are too big and pointless.

They really need to concentrate on the new game. With full destruction, 64,96 players only. maps slightly larger then BF4. Maybe 1 or 2 more flags etc.


DICE Dev Seems to Be Teasing Battlefield 2042 Season 7 in the Most Obscure Way Possible

It looks like we will be getting Battlefield 2042 Season 7, if this recent vague message from a DICE dev is to be believed.
