    It's funny because I was hyped for Too Human. I saw terrible reviews that literally complained about LOADING SCREEN TIMES... they were literally like a few seconds longer than most other games. I played the game and it was fantastic with TONS of customization. My younger self finished the game and couldn't wait to find out when there would be a seq-... oh the company died... well that is unfortunate...

    I thought this list was literally made just for Titanfall. Go figure.

    Great list Shaun. Surprised to not see Battlefront on this list, even though I personally enjoyed it quite a bit(I only played the beta though :P).

    A tie with Sonic '06 and Mario Party 9.

    "Its everything we want in a Duke Nukem game"

    I do not want to meet the person who wanted rape jokes in that, or any, game.

    ...where in the f*ck was Other M? When you go from this

    ...to one of the biggest betrayals of a fanbase in gaming history, there is no WAY you can't count that as a hyped game that sucked.

    Honestly, I enjoyed Duke Nukem Forever when it came out. It wasn't what I would call a great game, even today I enjoy 3D more than Forever, but it was ok, and it kept me pretty entertained over the course of the campaign. Some of the level design wasn't the best, but that was the worst thing it had going for it in my opinion. It was definitely better than some games I've seen get high ratings in recent years.

    Heh, heh... I bought Too Human for the 360 on the cheap for that very reason! Now all I gotta do is wait about 7 years and I'll be as rich as Scrooge McDuck... I also have X-Men Destiny for 360 and Shaq-Fu on SEGA Genesis. I'll corner the market on crappy video games fools destroyed from existence! These Shall Be Displayed In Museums! For in the gaming world, we must recognize the dark times of the past, so as to never repeat them ever again...

      I'm now just imagining Indiana Jones breaking into your house, punching you and taking them, yelling "it belongs in a museum!"

    It's a good thing you only included one Ubisoft franchise. Otherwise we'd have Assassin's Creed 3, Assassin's Creed IV, Assassin's Creed Unity, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Watch_Dogs, The Division, Far Cry: Primal, The Crew...

      Actually, I'm a big fan of Primal and the Crew. They are TOTALLY not very good. But I've put a lot of time into them either way. lol

      Why include AC4 and Syndicate on this list, both of those games were well acclaimed the others came out and didn't get great reviews and aren't likely to be remembered fondly or even at all be gamers, but AC4 and Syndicate did.

      I'm not sure that anyone was really that hyped for Primal or The Crew.


      And everyone ended up accidentally loving ACIV because of all the wrong reasons(pirates!)

    Pretty ballsy to put The Division on the list, especially considering how much you've played it Shaun. I tip my hat to you good sir.

      Again, expectation is a lot. Did I enjoy my time with it? Sure. But unfortunately I doubt I'll be returning to it that much.

    To be fair everyone should have expected ESO to be shit. It did not have mod support like Skyrim which meant the community couldn't fix Bethesda's game like they have for the last couple of years. Which makes it that much more hilarious that after GW2 people said they weren't ever gonna play sub based MMO's and didn't try out FFXIV:ARR but did play ESO. And that doesn't even matter because FFXIV did so well it freaking saved Square-Enix. They tried to play it down by saying they had good sales in pachinko machines(wtf lol) and some other stuff, but all you have to do is look at was being developed pre and post FFXIV to connect the dots.

      Bethesda didn't make ESO. Zenimax did.

    Does anybody remember Thirteen. That was a hyped up game that sucked. It stared David Duchonvy and Adam West. It was a special on XPlay and a whole section of Game Informer, and then the game came out...


    A C- grade all around. Even Xplay was like "Yeah... We fucked up..."

      That cel shaded one? I remember liking it okay if at least for the art style.

    Sonic 06.


    Ten years later, I still hate this game for hyping me up

      Man, I totally woulda had 06 on this, but I'd already been so dissapointed with games before it had released. :(

      Sonic '06 I had no problem with, honestly. Sonic Boom, for the Wii U, however... And considering that I went to the Sonic Boom event before the game's release, I'd say that counts to be mentioned on this list, in my view... The only time I've ever been let down by a Sonic game in my life...

    Knights of the Old Republic II (original release)? Had a tough act to follow, had to start following the act before they even knew how the act ended, and had to release the game before it was finished.
