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.
I agree with some of these --disagree with a couple.
Metro 2033 didn't have that much hype. No one really expected it to be that great (even though it was a very, very weak Xbox exclusive) and the fact that it wasn't that great wasn't a huge surprise.
FFXIV was a huge bomb.
MAG was underrated --it's better than people give it credit for.
I think anyone with a half working brain could've told you APB was going to suck.
I thought Metro 2033 lived up to its potential, great graphics, atmosphere, story and gunplay.
Everything was great except for a bit of dodgy AI.
It really showed off the power of the PC.
in retrospect it kind of sucks compared to Fallout: New Vegas
One is a shooter the other a 1st person RPG, dont compare the 2
All games cant live up to their potential if you get so hyped about it. IF you can just keep your cool then many games wotn seem overhyped or living up to their potential.
BLACK OPS nuff said.
