This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

What games you were hyped for this gen but in the end just sucked?

As someone who enjoyed the previous games in each series - Metal Gear Solid 4, Yakuza 3, and Yakuza 4

Need for Speed games - almost all of them don't have split screen multiplayers anymore

Assassin's Creed Revelation - the plot was disappointing

GTAIV - the controls and plot are disappointing, even though I like Niko Bellic and the other characters

Yakuza 3 - some of the features that make Yakuza great are cut out of the game outside Japan

WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2010 - can't edit downloaded CAWs' music and divas are more restricted

Jurassic the Hunted - too short and not enough varieties of enemies

Goldeneye Reloaded - The single player mode is boring

Final Fantasy XIII - plays nothing like the other FF

Grand Theft Auto IV and Prototype are the big ones. Prototype in particular.

Fable 3. I loved Fable 2, and Fable 3 is... Umm... Yeah. Take away Fable 2's soul and there you have a game.

LotR Conquest. Battlefront with a LotR skin?! Am I dreaming?
I wish I was. At least then I could wake up and still have my $65.

Modern Warfare 2. I bought the hype so hard.....
I will never buy a Modern Warfare again. Or CoD in general really.

I was kind of disapointed with Ni No Kuni. I didn't hate it, but after the great story buildup in the first half of the game, it really didn't deliver that much in the second. Overall, I still enjoyed it, but at the end of the day the story had me going "meh" a little.

Also, I really didn't care for the Familiar system and the AI was pretty bad. If there ever is a sequel, this was still a pretty good foundation.

Final Fantasy XIII - too linear, too many monster reskins, too little sidequests, bad characters.

Fallout: New Vegas - too similar to Fallout 3, way too many bugs and freezes, the casinos was a bit of a letdown.

PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale. Easily.

It didn't SUCK, but it could have been a LOT more than it turned out being.

This board hyped me up for both Dark Souls, and Demon's Souls, and they both sucked. I was pretty hyped for Gears 2 and 3, and in the end they were just kind of meh.
