my overall disappointing game list starts with the game everybody forgot about because it came out early in the year- Evolve...had so much potential but the DLC screw-up seemed to sour people before the game even officially launched
most disappointing launch goes to Arkham Knight (PC)...although things have improved performance wise and the game itself is actually excellent
most disappointing release which could turn into an excellent game after 6 months to a year- SW: Battlefront...not enough content at launch but EA games always take awhile to simmer
Metal Gear Solid 5 gets my vote for most disappointing. Took everything fans loved about the other games and threw it out the window.
My most surprising game was Mad Max! While not mad unique they did a LOT right with it, especially th environmental stuff.
I played Evolve on Pc at top level comp play. you probably either heard of me or some of my friends like Aurora Symphony. I loved that game, but TRS (Not 2k, actually they had nothing really to do with it's failure) really fucked that game up. From balance, at ANY level, to patch release pacing to just everything really. Game had potential to be one of the best competitive shooter games in a decade and instead they just utterly fucking ruined it.
The only game I've played were balance got WORSE after release, not better, especially with the nimrods they chose to pick up out of beta because they had the popularity contest won, not the actually skill to balance a game, ungh. what a waste, here's to hoping Paragon has much better luck, need another good fps/3ps game worth a damn for once that is NOT counter strike lol.
