Your most deceived hype game
Had a lot of what's your best boss or hardest boss
Now this thread is what is the game you had the most hype on that deceived you the most
Mine is easy. Fable back on the old xbox
Eli Manning is my Lord and Savior
Shadow the Hedgehog, mostly because of my teenage hype following Sonic Adventure 2.
Was actually planning on making a similar thread this weekend.
I'll name a few later but here's one that pisses me off:
Bleach: Soul Ignition/Resurreccion.
I was excited to hear about a Bleach Musou game and thought it would go from the start of the series until Aizen's defeat, but noo. They didn't let Koei handle it and fucking ruined it. I still have the game because I plan to finish it.
I know that Molyneux is a giant exaggerator and really should run everything by his marketing department before he opens his mouth so I never get hyped for his games. He always over promises and under delivers on what he says. Often it's just because the technology isn't capable to do all that he wants, but damn he really needs to learn to shut up until the game is about 6 months from release before he starts hyping what it's going to be able to do.

Gameplay and storywise it felt like a giant step backwards and felt damn near unplayable at times. Thankfully 3 fixed almost all of my complaints about 2, it's just a shame that not enough people gave it a chance after the abortion that was 2.

Going to get so much hate for posting this but Uncharted 3. It was a good game, dont get me wrong. But in my opinion it really could not live up to Uncharted 2 (easily a top 5 game of this gen for me). While Uncharted never had the best gunplay, in 3 they felt especially floaty. I didnt care much for the story compared to 2 either.
I would say SWTOR, but that hype didn't deceive me. Thanks to PS2, I approach most "hyped" games as bad games that needed to buy sales with cutscene-only ads.
Most racing games have flashy hype-machine ads for games that fall flat.
Uncharted, Infamous, LBP, Resistance, Killzone... a fkn ton of PS exclusives (I don't even own a 360 so I'm not trying to flame PS) that I have tried primarily because they were PS exclusives that were supposed to be amazing were all mediocre or not interesting at all to me.
basically the answer of the current console generation, only duke forever could come close to the hype machine made of unpossible

I might have to come back later if I can think of a better one, but off the top of my head, it'd have to be Tales of Legendia. I played it after playing Symphonia, and Abyss(which is my favorite), so I had high hopes.

While I don't let myself get hyped much pre-launch, these were the games I expected a whole lot more from when they came out:
FFXIV (yes, very stupid of me to think SE would unlock a whole lot more after the pre-release beta)
Mass Effect 3 (no explanation needed, ending failed, inb4 matthias)
Most recently: ME3
Mid range: FFXIV, Dragon Age 2
semi-long range: Supreme Commander 2 & Dow 40k2 (pc)
long range: Star Trek Armada
All time: Master of orion 3
But I'd have to say Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm: Generations was my most recent one. Trailers got me so hyped up for a game that I can't even play since the controls / gameplay doesn't mesh well with me.
I too, fell for this trap, sir.

Legendia would be pretty high on the list. They hit a good stride with Eternia and Symphonia being so good and then... that.

Especially more hype since I knew the main character was going to be a hand-to-hand fighter and I was like oh shit yeah... super Farah/Regal.
Tales of Xillia was the only game I was hyped for in the past year or two. Such a disappointment.
