Last year saw the disappointing releases of The Last Guardian, Star Fox Zero, Mafia 3, No Man's Sky, Quantum Break, and Mirror's Edge Catalyst. All of the games had longer than expected development times or were just never expected to be released, but all were pretty highly hyped (some more than others). Not to mention, recent past disappointments of Star Wars Battlefront, Halo 5, and Metal Gear Solid V (fuck Konami). This year already saw the cancellation of the highly anticipated game from Platinum Games, "Scalebound" (which looked pretty dope, if you ask me), and based on the overwhelming sadness for the game's death from many on the internets, we could possibly end up seeing someone else pick up the game for release at some point. I leave this question for you. Which of the following games are likely to disappoint us the most when/if they're released? Half Life 3/ Episode 3 Beyond Good and Evil 2 Star Citizen Prey 2 Super Mario Odyssey Red Dead Redemption 2 The Final Fantasy VII remake Mass Effect: Andromeda Unreal Tournament 4 Of course this assumes people are disappointed by the mentioned games, but we all know that even if the game is good, people are going to bitch about it (Fallout 4...). I know it's an easy out, but I'm really thinking that if Half Life 3 were to come out, that even if were any good, that it would get nearly the same level of backlash as Last Guardian got, and that will surpass any disappointment the others would manage to conjure up.. Valve spoiled us with the Half Life 2 games that were nearly perfect (Episode 1 maybe no so much), that there's no way whatever follows can match our expectations. Maybe that's why it has taken Valve so long to make the next one. Maybe they backed themselves into a corner with how Episode 2 ended, and delayed Episode 3 for so long that they are stuck in the place where they either continue like they were going to with no added features (treading on the "same old shit" ground) or they're waiting on the next big thing that they can use to revolutionize the genre again. Either way, we're likely going to be either extremely disappointed, or our minds are going to be blown like they were at the end of Bioshock Infinite.
