FFD: What big game will fail to live up to expectations?

2 min read


2014 is set to be another great year for videogames – and if you take a look at our mammoth recommendation for the games to watch out for this year, there are quite a number of games that promise to be huge.

Inevitably though, one or two (or more!) of them are going to end up being a bit disappointing, a little less than expected, or just downright terrible. The question is, which ones? Obviously, many are now worried that Titanfall, with its by design 6v6 player counts just isn’t going to be as good as all those people who’ve played it keep saying it is. (We’ve played it. It’s really good!)

There’s every possibility that Ubisoft’s delayed Watch Dogs isn’t going to be nearly as exciting as we hope, and could in fact be a rather dull experience. We’ve liked what we’ve played of it so far, though one wonders if that’s going to make for a complete experience.

Destiny, from Halo guys bungie could end up being a disappointment, when people realise that’s really just Borderlands in Space (wait a minute..that sounds AWESOME!). Dragon Age Inquisition, though it looks magical, could end up being a little more like Dragon age II than we’d hoped. the new Super Smash Bros might not be half as good as Melee, or even Brawl and the new Thief reboot certainly has some design decisions that long-time fans aren’t fond of.

There’s every possibility that The Witcher 3 could end up a disappointment with its new open-world structure; games of that ilk tend to lose focus when they’re not quite as linear.

what big game in 2014 do you think is going to completely fail to live up to the hype and expectation?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
