Like with any other entertainment medium, video game sales aren’t always reflective of their quality. Often, we see great games coming out to widespread praise from critics and audiences alike that somehow manage to not sell very well. Sadly, it’s something that happens quite a lot, and in this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen such games.

DEUS EX: MANKIND DIVIDED

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided ruffled some feathers with its abrupt ending, but no one could doubt that it was a great game. It built on the complex systemic moment-to-moment action from Human Revolution, offering players diverse choices in how they wanted to tackle any given objective, and all in all, was more than just a solid package. Sadly, at launch, the game’s sells fell below expectations, and Square Enix ended up putting the franchise on ice. Both Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have said on multiple occasions that the Deus Ex series isn’t done yet, so let’s just hope a sequel isn’t too far away (but it most likely is).
