Developers and publishers often don’t seem to understand that the more they hype up their games, the more they’re going to have to live up to. Seems like simple logic, right? Well, several high profile disappointments over the years have shown us that it’s not nearly as commonly understood as you’d expect. Here, we’ll be talking about fifteen first person shooters that made massive promises in the lead-up to their launch, but ended up falling short of expectations.

HALO 5: GUARDIANS

343 Industries weren’t exactly in an enviable position when they took the reigns of the Halo franchise from Bungie, but even so, Halo 4 was a respectable (albeit imperfect) first outing for them. After that, everything just went downhill. The Master Chief Collection had a terrible launch (that it would take years to recover from), while Halo 5 just continued that downward spiral, thanks to a disappointing story that for some reason decided to shift focus away from Master Chief, and gameplay mechanics that seemed too taken by the likes of Call of Duty for their own good.
