    What was the most disappointing game this gen?

    With the PS3 going into it's final year as the only Playstation console on the market I think it's time to take a look back. I know we have had some great joys playing PS3 over the years but times weren't always bright. The launch brought about some great promise but the end result didn't quite wind up so intriguing. There were just titles that didn't quite live up to the hype. *cough* *Haze* *cough* So what do you think game/games disappointed you the most this gen?

    For me I would have to say there were a few that stuck out the most to me. As I already mention in my coughing fit earlier, Haze was just awful to me. I couldn't get past the first couple hours of the game. I rarely turn a game off and never look back. I did with Haze. Another game that I would add to that list was Rage. It was a fun game to play but it has to be the most unpolished game I've ever played. For a game that was supposed to push the graphical boundaries, It sure had it's share of flat surfaces that didn't load.

    One game that stuck in my craw some kind of bad was Dragon Age 2. How do you scale back on everything that made your IP great and dumb it down to preschool level. The combat was the only bright point to me. It was faster while keeping it's basic RPG elements there. That isn't enough to save the rehashing of levels and atmosphere. I kept thinking to myself playing through the game, "Haven't I been here before?" Well that's because I had just with a different color in the background or the layout reversed. It sure was a big disappointment for me considering that DA:Origins was coincidentally one of my absolute favorites of the current gen.

    Battlefield 3.

    The game had so much potential and hype. BF2 was great, Bad Company 1 and 2 were even better... and 3 was just a piece of $#@! in every way possible and I hated it

    Yeah I didn't get all the hype surrounding BF3. It was a good looking game but the SP was one of the worst shooter stories I've ever seen. The MP just didn't pull me in either. Don't know if it was due to the extreme scale of the maps but I felt like I spent too much time trying to get to the fight than actually fighting. I played it for a bit but never got into it.

    I think a lot of the support come from the fact that it wasn't COD tbf.

    Black Ops 1&2 i hate the online gameplay.
    The Last of Us, Anime, Rosie Jones

    No matter what race you are or what you look like or your sexuality or where you come from, We are all the same people and we are all bothers & sisters so love each other & don't let anyone tell you any different.

    Remember you can't choose what you are from birth but you can choose what you want to become.

    Just because you haven't seen them doesn't mean they are not there we all got to have something to believe in.

    I want to agree while simultaneously scoffing at you. Arkham Asylum is one of the greatest action adventure games I've ever played. Arkham City... Is a brazen cash grab. I would probably pick Arkham City has my most disappointing game of all time. The few relatively superficial improvements it made did little to alter its overall mediocrity.

    Strange....I would pick Arkham City as one of my favorite games this generation.

    I was only talking about gameplay and how Resistance 2 just felt like two steps forward and one step back.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    So you're complacent with a piece of $#@! game?

    So Arkham City, Infamous 1, Assassin's Creed 2(the only one I played), Max Payne 3, Sly 4, and Medal of Honor are games that fell considerably short of expectations.

    I semi agree, Arkham Asylum was amazing, Arkham City wasn't as good but it was still great. Not sure if I'll get the next Arkham game at launch like I did with AC.

    I'm going to have to agree with you. I was so excited to play them because of all the great things I've heard. Once I did play them, I was very disappointed.

    AC3. After all the promising previews and pre-release write-ups and trailers, and gameplay vids- it looked to be one of the most epic games ever.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Two come to mind.

    1. Red Dead Redemption(bring on the hate!!!)- This game had literally 4-5 missions repeated over and over again. I herd cattle and capture horses and races at the start of the game, the last missions leading up to end are me herding cattle and capturing horses. The place was big, but was not much to do compared to the size. It was to repetitive and boring.

    2. Rage- I mean the ending WTF??? I have never before bought a game and felt like I was ripped off but with this I did. I feel like I got suckered into a $60 tech demo. The ending made no sense and whatever DLC they planned got canceled so you are left with a mediocre shooter whose online isn't even shooting but car racing.

    I will agree the beginning for RDR is complete $#@! but once the game opened up after that it became one of my favorite games this gen. Also the zombie dlc is total $#@! awesome.

    Assassin's Creed, the first one. The game looked dope when it was nothing but trailers leading up to the release. I got it day 1, played 2-3 hrs and have never gone back to it. What a $#@!in let down. Haven't played an AC game since.

    Resident Evil 6 for me. I absolutely loved RE5, though I did play it co-op the entire time. RE6 just ruined everything.

    Duke Nukem Forever. 12yrs in the making and it completely sucked.

    Easily FF13, a lot of franchises went downhill this gen but that one most of all.

    Even Duke Nukem Forever wasn't as big a disappointed, I actually played through it twice and got SOME enjoyment out of it.

    The font some members are using makes it a chore to read their posts.

    Most disappointing game...

    There are a few, but I'll just stick with the big two:

    1. Dragon Age 2 - I actually liked the game, but it was... one step forward (Art design), two steps back (No sense of exploration and the plot) to keep it simple.

    2. Mass Effect 3 - I also really liked this game, but like DA2 it did some things better than the previous games (Combat, customization), but other things worse (The ending and lack of side quests). I really, really like the lore of Mass Effect but feel Bioware could have done so much more in the games.
    I talk to myself because I'm the only one whose answers I accept.

    Assassin's Creed 3. Thought it was going to top AC2 but I guess the time period just isn't interesting enough.

    Off the top of my head it was probably SOCOM 4, there was nothing "SOCOM" about it. It was pretty much a new IP with the SOCOM name.

    If Sony were smart they would remake Socom 2 multiplayer for PS4 add a map creator and sell it for $20-$30 on PSN.
