5 most disappointing games

Post by Ender on Wed Nov 10, 2010 10:28 pm

What be they?

For me,

Pokemon Channel: Not wildly hyped at all, and for good reason. This is my pick for worst game I have ever played, even beating out ET, which I think was good enough for being in development for only 6 weeks.

Metroid Other M: The storyline was interesting but in no way a novelty, Samus's life already being detailed in a classic Nintendo published comic series. The graphics were fine, but eh game play and mechanics were all fundamentally flawed and unintuitive.

Fable 3: What was supposed to fix all the bad things in Fable 2 ended up just dropping all content from the game. All of it. This 5 hour adventure has no more than 20 different weapons of note and a very limited combat system. Interesting story though and a good concept.

Sonic and the Secret Rings: Sonic was long known as the king of action-platforming, but this game took out the "platforming" and the fun, replacing it with speed and absolutely no control over what the hell you were doing. While the mechanics made for some unique gameplay, as it became a trend in later sonic games, the gimmick got tiresome quickly. As Pika later points out, it may actually be my worst game of all time, over Pokechannel.

Spiderman 3 (Wii): Spiderman 2 was in all respects a great and ambitious GCN game, one of my favorites. I forgot to put it in my TOP list...Anyway, the developers thought it would be immersive to include motion controls in the game. Wrong. Nothing responded to the player and the game itself was a chaotic mash up of blatant fan service.

Im sure i can think of more games than this, but give me time.

i actually kind of liked pokemon channel, it was cool to have a pet pikachu and do gaemz n quizzes for cards and other things to collect for your room

i think sonic and the secret rings is the worst, i rented it back when giant eagle still had renting video games, i didnt even get past the tut because of the controls...

Yeah, in brawl's case, it wasn't really the GAME'S fault for the disappointment (which I share, btw), but the ludicrously high expectations of the gamer.

Every sonic game after Adventure 2 Battle. Not counting DX, obviously.

Metriod was a sad one, but Peanut Butter and Radishes was indeed a real let down.

Your number 1 is a rather lofty and arrogant claim. Have you never played RE4, TOS, Metroid Prime, Viewtiful Joe, Sonic Adv. 2 Battle, and about 30 other games I can think of?? Evil or Very Mad

Agreed. I have a huge stack of amazing Gamecube games. Oh, and TALES OF SYMPHONIA. That game was for Gamecube and ranks right up there with Klonoa on my list.

But for me, my 5 most disappointing games would be...

-The DS Zelda games (Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks)
Being a huge Zelda fan from the beginning, these games were a total letdown. PH was pretty decent, but still not completely enjoyable, and ST just plain sucked...

-The Conduit
Yeah, it was way overhyped. The Multiplayer was annoying as hell, and the storyline was pretty short and basic.

-Modern Sonic Games
Just...no. Ever since SA2B (Which was AMAZING), Nintendo hasn't released anything even close to decent in this series in my opinion.

-Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2,3,others
As much as I loved the first game when I was a kid, the sequels totally failed to even come close to comparing to the original (Which was completely amazing).

-Fullmetal Alchemist games
Great anime. Horrible video games.

-Guitar Hero: World Tour
Yes, this makes six games, but I had to add it in. This game phailed epically.

This right here, that hurts my heart. Because that statement is so untrue. ToS is one of my favorite rpg's ever it's like, 3rd, but considering ffx and twewy are the two above it, it's ntot saying anything bad about it. SA2B is my favorite sonic game. i likeda chao's a lot. wind waker is also pretty good. to say that you are disappointed by the gamecube its self is faaaaaar too unfair to the not so hidden gems it contains. OH and pso, pso is my lover Razz
