FFD: What was 2011's biggest gaming disappointment?

1 min read


We’ve talked a lot about how 2011 was a magnificent year for video games, giving us some of the best games we’ve ever played. It’s also been a year for gaming disappointments; games that just don’t live up to their predecessors or own media hype. Kinect’s given us pretty much diddly squat worth playing, and PlayStation Move’s been even worse. Hackers made life difficult for Sony and PS3 gamers. We’ve seen DRM get in the way of everything, online passes propagate and purveyors of DLC plumb ridiculous new depths.

Duke came back (though we wish he hadn’t), we’ve been bombed with HD remakes  and Dragon Age II exists.

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.
