Every year, a ton of new games make it to the market and though not all of them are worth your time and money, it becomes very difficult to find out the ones that are worth picking up. Of course, we review a lot of them to tell you whether or not it's worth buying but we also come across a lot of disappointing titles almost every now and then.
Well, I decided to list these games out because I seem to have too much time to think about these games during the lockdown. Before I begin, I'd like to point out that none of these games are bad by any means. I mean, it's a huge task to make a game and release it to the public, so if anything, we should appreciate their efforts.
So I am simply pointing out the ones which I found to be very disappointing. Essentially, we're looking at an "overhyped and underdeliver" kind of situation here with these games. Let's check it out -
Watch Dogs is one of those games that literally made me go "Wowza" when I first saw it at an E3 keynote 6 years ago. Seriously, it was one of the best looking video game demos that I had ever seen. But the final retail version that shipped to the players? Well, it was nothing like what we were promised. Anyway, it's currently available for free from the Epic Games Store, so you can check it out if you want to.
If you've played Fable 3, then you're probably wondering why is this game in the list of most disappointing games? Well, as I mentioned earlier, we're talking about the games that couldn't really deliver on the promises made before their release. Fable 3's designer Peter Molyneux is the one considered to be guilty of this.
Game Of Thrones RPG
The only good thing about the Game Of Thrones RPG was the story. I mean, you just can't go wrong with a GoT plot, right? Oh wait, I forgot about season 8. Anyway. The GoT RPG game was disappointing in almost every way. The game mechanics were bad and even the graphics were simply not that great. Simply put, it wasn't on par with the RPGs that were ruling at that time.
Duke Nukem Forever
This is a game that was sitting in development for 15 years. The devs started working on it back in 1997 and it came out 2011. The game legit feels veery old due to that. Everything from dialogue, gameplay mechanics and even graphics, feels like it was made for a 90s game. However, there was way too much hype surrounding this game, and it simply couldn't deliver it.
