IYO: What was the biggest disappointment during this generation?

Sonic. Little blue fella took 5 steps backwards at the beginning of this gen. Colors and Generation took him about 3 steps forward. Lost World took a half step back...so the franchise still is behind a bit.

Force Unleashed 2

Metroid Other M

Spore

Playstation Home

Star Wars Kinect

Force Unleashed 2


Before I allowed myself to get derailed by Stig, I was going to say this.

Demo showed the combat engine was sooo much better. Too bad the levels were crap, the game was insultingly short and the story was pants on head moronic.

And Gears Judgement, which I actually liked it for a bit when it came out but they let the community destroy the game with their crying.

I've never seen fans cry so much and for the devs to actually change and cater to one specific area of fan-base

Only game I've traded in, in a year or more

In terms of general business practices it's been very disappointing to see DLC schemes where developers (many times at the command of the publisher) take a completed portion of the game that is on the disc and ask you to pay extra to unlock it.

I was sad to see so many great studios die this generation.. Factor 5, Free Radical, Hudson Soft, Zipper Interactive, Bizarre Creations, Black Rock Studio, EA Chicago, Radical Entertainment, Vigil Games... just goes to show making 1 high budget flop can sink a studio easily. Even THQ and Midway couldn't survive.

To me seeing the industry I grew up loving change in so many ways for the worse... was more disappointing from the few bad video games I landed up playing.

Halo 4. Snoozefest. Ordnance.
Dead Rising 2. Downloaded it when it was free. Snoozefest.
Black Ops. Returned it and never bought a CoD after that, never will unless they innovate. The maps didn't grab me like MW2.
Gears of War Judgment. It looks bad content wise and a step down from Gears 3.

- RROD
- The introduction of season passes, disc-locked-content, pay-to-play, etc.
- The bugs found in both the X360 and PSP versions of Blood Bowl (much more prominent in the PSP version, but the X360 has bugs too).

^ Oh yeah, and I agree with SunDevil that Sonic has really gone backwards this gen.

Assassins creed 3. That game totaly destroyed the AC franchise for me.
