and did it live up to your hype? doesnt have to be exclusive.

for me, halo 3. halo 4 i had very litter hype, and may have been disappointed by bungie certainly fueled my hype with the trailers, screenshots, previews..... i miss those days. the trailler (starry night I think?) made me wonder if the games were going to have flashbacks and stuff to give it a deeper feel. although the hype may have been over it a little, i still enjoyed. i remember the beta and everything.... the game was so enveloped in mystery.

lol, feel like i can tear up i know, its stupid. what about you guys?

Last game I was really hyped for was Max Payne 3, huge fan

Gameplay , music and atmosphere surpassed my expectations, it was incredible in those areas

Story and characters was abysmal compared to the first two though, Max was awesome but everyone else were either uninteresting, boring or pointless

AC3. Was the single biggest disappointment I've ever personally experienced.

Borderlands 2

I really enjoyed the first game so I was hyped for the sequel.
And while the sequel improved on some things, it fails to hold my interest for some reason. I play for about an hour and I get bored with it, and I can't quite fathom why..?
I think part of the reason why is because the loot seems more stingy...sure, the game drops lots of weapons, but most of it is utter garbage. And people claim that the story is better, but I fail to see how or why.

On the flip-side of things...I picked up a game for the XB 360 not too long ago that wasn't even on my radar, but it was suggested to me and so I checked it out and the X-ray feature intrigued me and so I picked it up...the game was Sniper Elite V2, and I was truly impressed with it.

So there was a game that I was hyped for and was ultimately disappointed (Borderlands 2)...and a game that I wasn't even following but ended up pleasantly surprised with (Sniper Elite V2).

I think I'm indecisive, but I'm not sure. Brubalities are the future of Mortal Kombat.

RE5. Resident Evil was my favorite series until that came out.
