Icrontic takes us on a trip down fail lane, as they relate the top eleven gaming fails of 2009. No company (or country) is safe from their judgment.
Great list, Demigod launch was THE WORST
For me the worst fail was the 360's atrocious line-up. Seriously, it was almost non-existent and the only thing I played on it were multiplats. "Gran Turismo 5 Delayed… Again" How many times must this be said? GT5 has NEVER had a release date until the one for March was announced. How can you possibly delay something without a release date? It's been delayed... ONCE, not "again."
Sure, but Polyphony Digital's continual push of half-assed portions must be noted. Sure, the game has been delayed, and it will be released when it's done (something all of us will appreciate). But in the mean time, they release prologue. They release a time trial demo. They promo all sorts of 'not quite' versions of the game. Stop messing around with these frivolous extras and focus on completing the game!
It's not always that simple in the development world. If the publishers wants a demo, you gotta give them a demo. There's more to making games than, sadly, JUST making games. Trust me on that one.
"For me the worst fail was the 360's atrocious line-up. Seriously, it was almost non-existent and the only thing I played on it were multiplats" Halo Wars,Ballad Of Gay Tony and Lost and Damned,ODST,Forza 3 And L4d 2. Ok,not the greatest line up ever and not a patch on the ps3 this year.but still not that bad and imo definitely not the worst thing about 2009 by far.... these 6 games alone gave me a big chunk of my gaming year.
Top 11 gaming fails?.. Or "I could only think of 11 gaming fails".
Really? That's your comment on this story? What number would you like? 25? 70? 140? Seriously, I could think of a hundred reasons in which the game industry failed in 2009. But writing is about concise brevity. No one would read an article that long. Heck, most won't even read past 10. It's how internet publications work - information in brevity. You know as well as I do that you can't hold peoples attention for much longer than that.
"It's how internet publications work - information in brevity. You know as well as I do that you can't hold peoples attention for much longer than that." Not with total flamebait at least. Top 11 gaming fails - calculated for neutral response.
I agree. If you want to point fingers nintendo had the worst line-up for 2009. If forza 3 didn't come out this year I probably would've agreed with Saaking.
Should have been 365 days of gaming failure, would have saved making a short list. Even the best games to have come out of last year were disappointing in the long run.
