10 Games in 2010 that failed to live up to their potential

XMNR: "Maybe they were massively over hyped, maybe they failed to live up to the legacy of their developer or maybe they just weren’t all that great to begin with. Regardless, here are ten games from this past year that could have been awesome, but, for one reason or another, simply weren’t."

MAG was fun, but I expected more. I'd love to see a sequel.

I never had high hopes for Metro 2033 and in retrospect it kind of sucks compared to Fallout: New Vegas.

NYC_Gamer4957d ago (Edited 4957d ago )

metro 2033 and fallout new vegas are two different type of games

Best4957d ago

Gran Turismo 5 was said to be the biggest let down of the century by cnn reviews.

seraphcaeli4957d ago

Completely different games - no wonder that guy has 11 disagrees lol

visualb4957d ago (Edited 4957d ago )

metro 2033 compared to Fallout New Vegas...wow =P

@ Best -

a) what does that have to do with nyc_gamer's reply?

b) cnn reviews, because they know their gaming ;)/s

c) biggest let down of the century is the fact that ******s like you actually waste their time to down play a game they never played and never will play to gain a little bit of ego and self appreciation by quoting a completely irrelevant source in a completely off topic manner

that to me is the biggest let down of this gen: you **** *** **** fanboys

game wise? I was above all let down by RDR Multiplayer, but thats because I had unrealistic expectations of what it was going to be like =(

IronySucks4957d ago

A better comparison is Metro 2033 to STALKER.

Personally, I thought Metro 2033 sucked. Everyone was hyping it up like it was going to be the next big thing (especially Xbox fan boys) and look how well it did.

Horrible AI and the hit detection was pathetic.

I honestly think Metro 2033 was one of my biggest disapointments this year after FFXIV.

BattleAxe4957d ago

You must have played it on the 360.

mikepmcc4957d ago

Yeah, I played Metro on the PC, and it was pretty awesome.

nnotdead4957d ago

i have heard that most of the 360 problems, like AI, aren't bad on the PC version. still need to play the game. wanted to pick it up on Steam for $10, but with the holidays i have very little extra cash. maybe next sale i won't have to be so tight with my wallet.

hoops4957d ago

Play the PC version. The Xbox360 version sucked ass.

GT5 isnt only the biggest letdown this year, but probably in the history of gaming.

Cogan14957d ago

yeah 6 million sold in 2 weeks, what a let down!

garrod4957d ago

Your retarded you dumb troll have you even played the game?

DRIIV4957d ago

It's easy to say something is a letdown if you hold up to insane expectations, and do sever nitpicking of anything you think is wrong with it(even if it isn't true)

DeFFeR4957d ago


I don't quote sales, but it's funny that when "xbox fanboys" quote Halo sales, "PS Fanboys" get all riled up...

Ohh the hipocracy is rampant.

htownrocket874957d ago


men lie, woman lie numbers......don't. lol

kwicksandz4957d ago

pretty sure the 6 mill figure was shipped not sold

Silly gameAr4957d ago (Edited 4957d ago )

I always find it funny when certain people bring up the shipped not sold argument.

It didn't matter a few years ago, now all of a sudden, you better be sure to mention that they're shipped numbers, or it won't count.

ECM0NEY4957d ago


Dude sales does not have to do with quality... It sold bc of the name not bc of quality. Same reason why CODs sell these days.

Panzerkanzler4956d ago

You must be retarded, sorry.

I actually enjoyed Metro 2033. I paid 10$ for it and hell, it was actually pretty awesome.

That may be just me, it seems.

pixelsword4957d ago

someone disagreed because you didn't pirate I guess...

CrzyFooL4957d ago

Metro 2033 is one of the best PC games released this year and is a staple for PC benchmarking.

Bolts4957d ago (Edited 4957d ago )

LOL! So did everyone buy Metro from the Steam holiday sale or what? Bought mine for $10 as well, figured I can't lose at that price and was blown away by the graphics. But the game spent too much capital on atmosphere and not enough on gun play mechanics. Overall Stalker CoP is a better game.

otherZinc4957d ago

Kinect shouldn't be on this list!

GT5 should be the first game on this list!

pixelsword4957d ago

Kinect isn't a game so yes, it shouldn't be on there, but GT5 is not a game that should be on there because it does what car lovers do, that is who the game is for.

Viper74957d ago

GT fans where hoping for more, but not many are that disapointed since its still a really good game.

Kinect however was praised to heavens and yes the tech department seems awesome, but the nature of the tech doesn't really seem like it could be used in games for anything other than high precision Eyetoy or getting 3D models from house objects to your game.

bobdog6264956d ago

If kinect is on this list where is MOVE .It should B at number 1 at the top of the List =FAIL

Dave13514956d ago

move should definitely be on the list. i wasted 150 bucks on it and haven't touched it in weeks. theres no games
