Default Your Biggest Video Game Disappointment

We've all had them, that game you've been watching on the internet since it was announced at some fancy gaming expo. A potential game of the year, the show-stealer. The diamond in the rough. But when that game finally hits the shelves, and you find out it is complete and utter crap. That is perhaps one of the worst things that could happen to a gamer. The worst part is having to go back to the same store you bought it so you can get store credit towards a new game that could have the ability to be a complete disappointment as well. I'm a very optimistic guy when it comes to videogames. I am, I don't dwell on every flaw or error a game has and have that one error ruin the overall product for me. I've sat through games like Deadly Premonition and found satisfaction that the story was completely mind-blowing despite how awful the animation, game-play, action, and cut-scenes were. But I can only take so much before I storm up and trade it away.


For me, perhaps the most disappointing Videogame I have ever had to play was Brink. Brink had a very solid promise as a videogame. It was a FPS that offered a lot of unique elements to it. For one, it was set in a post-apocalyptic utopia that two groups were fighting over, law enforcement, and Rioters. The setting itself made the story and it didn't make either group bad guys. Your choice on who to play as was up to your moral compass. Than you had complete, character creation. Your size, your outfit, your skin, your nose. Your weapons, everything was in your hands. The game-play itself also looked promising. It was suppose to be a small CQC 8-8 team play combat. One team would be setting out to do objectives, while the other team tried to hold out before the timer ended. It also engineered a very fun free-running engine that changed the way you ran through a map.

What made this game a disappointment? How completely lop-sided matches could have been for one team or another solely based on the map design. As soon as a map was selected, you instantly knew that you would either be strolling through the other team, or you preparing your own ass for a slaughter. Their was no in between. And the matchmaking itself was complete garbage, the people at Brink H.Q decided that using a P2P connection for their game would be a quick, cheap fix to matchmaking. But the result ended in having the most buggy, laggy, and horrid games seen to date. The game only seemed to work if you played co-op with your buddies against bots. And that can only be fun for so long.


Now I'm asking you.

What is your Biggest Video Game Disappointment?

Hmmm...I'm gonna go with the usual.

Duke Nukem Forever.

Hands down, one of the worst games ever made. I was so excited for it, because I remember the Duke Nukem games for the N64 and I adored them. I was ready for the filthy, horny, alien fighting warrior to return...and then the game finally came out after 15 years. Everyone thought that after 15 years, the game must be good, right? We were clearly all wrong. The game is horribly broken. The loading screens take at least a minute+ for each level or checkpoint. The environments are bland, the enemies are the same over and over and over again, and the graphics are just so poor that the basic functions of Duke come across like crap.

As you stand in the elevator in the second mission, you look at the mirror and jump. You hear the repeated "Hurhh!" of Duke jumping in place and realize that only his legs do moving. The body lifts off the ground and the legs tuck under his ass, but ironically, his whole upper body does not move. It moves with the body, but that's it.

The weapons are cool, but so simple. The "cool Duke" sayings that made you giggle as a kid remain almost exactly the same, but the funny is sucked dry from them. You can pick up poop out of a toilet (For a 10G achievement), write dirty things on a white board with a marker, punch bad guys in the balls, get lapdances from naked strippers, drink beer, take steroids, and get a blowjob from Twins, but even all of that doesn't save this game from the horrible disaster it was meant to be. 15 years of creation, mixed with evolving platforms, companies passing the game around like a breakout of herpies in a College Fraternity, and just the sheer lack of effort brought on by 3D Realms, Gearbox, and 2K Games, has completely ruined any leftover love of Duke Nukem.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

After playing Oblivion and other open ended fantasy games, the LOZ series no longer does anything for me. Nintendo has found a way to make the exact same story of good and evil but beat it to death. I once wrote a term paper on how great the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (my favorite in the series, and possibly the best one overall in my opinion)

But after playing Twilight Princess I felt disappointed because it was more of the same that Id come to expect from Nintendo and from the LOZ series. Ice castle, fire castle, opening sequence of events that lead to some alternate world where the shit happening there effected the shit happening in the other world and blah blah blah the same thing its been happening in the LOZ series for the past 20 years.

Brink was a let down for sure. I remember my friends that work at Gamestop kept telling me to pre-order it because it was going to be awesome. Glad I didn't listen. Aside from the lag and server issues at launch the game was just a mess. The whole parkour with guns seemed cool but nope. The customization factor was pretty cool but that was one of the games few redeeming qualities.

Duke Nukem Forever and Twilight Princess are solid choices as well.

I think in recent memory though two games stand out big for me.
1)Final Fantasy 14-I am a huge fan of MMOs. So when I heard that FF was releasing an MMO I practically came in my pants. I went to pick it up at midnight, got home, installed that bad boy and after about two hours... The interface was bad for an MMO, the economy was shit, the quests were just plain bad and restrictive. It still sits on my shelf to this day unmoved from when I took it out of my PC

2)Star Wars The Old Republic-Now while I still play and greatly enjoy this game its still a let down. I got sucked in big time. The problem is that I was expected a complete 10/10 game and got a game thats a solid 8 or 8.5. The story is great, the interface is good, the economy has been fixed. The problems are it feels more like a regular RPG where you occasionally run into other people than an actual MMORPG, and the quests that do require groups aren't really that difficult. My other complaint is that once you reach level 50, max level, there isn't much else to do. I'm sure it will be fixed with patches and expansions in the future but as of right now the PVP system isn't good enough to keep me interested

Incredibly disappointed with the ending of KOTOR II: The Sith Lords, but overall, the game was brilliant. Fantastic game, shit ending.

If we are talking about the overall game experience, and not just the ending, I am going to go with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. I own both Ultimate Alliances and both X-Men Legends games on which the gameplay is based...3 of the 4 games are really good. The 4th is just too damn short, especially considering the Marvel Civil War storyline it's based on. I just did not enjoy it nearly as much as I did Ultimate Alliance.

Mine was probably Legends of Wrestlemania.

After the disappointment of The 3 Legends of Wrestling games I was very excited when I heard THQ was making a game solely bases on WWE Legends. When the announcement was made I can't tell you how excited I was. Afterall they made the Smackdown vs. RAW and Smackdown series and even though not every game was great in my opinion they were at least good, I have played and own every single one of them and even though some were forgettable none of them were bad. Because of this I'm thinking "well there is no way this game will be bad". They literally could have taken the Smackdown vs. RAW '09 engine, put in legends and I would have been happy and satisfied just because I would finally be playing as all my favorites growing up.

So I buy the game the day it comes out. Put it in and when the menu screen comes up the song playing is the LOD theme and I was like "fuck yeah". Then I actually played the game and man it doesn't get more uninspired and suck ass as that. The game play worked but was boring, I get what they were attempting to do but was executed poorly. After 2 hours I couldn't play it anymore. I waited YEARS for that game to come out, it finally does and I was so disappointed. How can you fuck this up? It would have been so easy to make a good Legends wrestling game, they already made good WWE games NUMEROUS times and the game that came out 3 months beforehand was good (not great but good) and this monstrosity of a game comes out and pretty much crushes any hopes for another Legends WWE game.

There have been a lot of highly anticipated games for me that weren't good or simply didn't live up to what was expected, some of the games were even worse than Legends of Wrestlemania BY FAR but because I was so pumped for this game and so disappointed when I played it I have to put it as my biggest video game disappointment.

Mine is Metal gear Solid 2 but Assassins creed 1 came very fucking close.


How do you make sure the sequel to one of the most popular Playstation 1 games of all time is successful? Why you take out the main character that's insanely popular of course! And throw in a plot that makes absolutely no sense while your at it!
While a good game in it's own right it never came close to living up to the expectations i had for this game after the brilliance of Metal Gear Solid 1. I had been looking forward to this game since i finished the original and after seeing the teaser trailer and more importantly the massive improvement in graphics my interest was well and truly at an all time high leading up to it's release in spring 2002.

However once i got to play the game i was left feeling cheated at the choice to only have Snake as a playable character for the prologue before introducing us to Raiden, a whiny unlikeable cunt(for lack of a better word). I say i was left feeling cheated but i was too busy trying to make sense of the clusterfuck of a plot Kojima had put together. I must have played through that game 5 times before i actually got a grasp of what was going on, "he's got liquids hand grafted on his arm therefore liquid can control him", "The colonel talks to you on the codec but it's not really the colonel", "Vamp can dodge bullets without a care in the word in the cutscenes yet you can easily kill him in the boss battle", "the enemy have a nuclear warhead no wait it's a purified hydrogen bomb no wait their going to release toxins into the ocean" and don't even get my started on the damm patriots.

To be fair the gameplay was solid and i guess it redeems itself somewhat by the fact the plot ended up making more sense as the series went on but honestly Metal Gear solid 2 was one of the most anticipated games of 2002 and Kojima gave the fans a giant middle finger by taking Solid Snake out of the game and replacing him with a guy that's been included in many peoples lists for worst character of all time and providing a plot that made no sense at the time whatsoever. No game since then has disappointed me as much as it did back in 2002, it could have been a classic it should have been a classic but instead it's seen as the blip in the franchise.

For the record Captain Morgan Freeman, Metal Gear Solid 2 released November of 2001, not 2002.

I know their your opinions, but I can't even grasp how Twilight Princess was even remotely disappointing--but that's a debate for another thread.

I'll go with Devil May Cry 2. This game is like the handbook on how to ruin a sequel by removing everything that mad the predecessor so great. The confident and wise-cracking Dante was gone, replaced with a silent and grim shell of himself who, for some reason, had a Two-Face-like obsession with coin flips. The challenging difficulty that made the original game so popular was dumbed down to the point that the game was mind-numbingly easy.

The levels were bland and uninspired, the boss fights were poorly designed (that helicopter fight being the worst offender--you can't even SEE the damn thing) and the story is as uninteresting as it is confusing.

I was a huge fan of the original DMC and purchased DMC 2 on day one after saving for a month. Calling it a disappointment is an understatement.

Most wrestling games have disappointed me since the N64 versions. I appreciate how they're more in-depth now and the graphics are awesome, but simple and fun gameplay is why I play video games and I find most wrestling games don't have that fun element any more.
