Hype can be a dangerous thing, and as we have learned on no few occasions over the years, it can be just as detrimental to a game as it can be advantageous. There have been countless instances of games that have launched on the back of massive and prolonged hype, either because of their developers or because of the games themselves were promising, but have ultimately ended up failing to live up all of that anticipation. Here, we’re going to talk about a few such games- specifically, single player titles.

 CYBERPUNK 2077

Let’s begin with one of the most recent – and biggest – examples of a game failing to live up to its hype. Cyberpunk 2077 looked set to take the world by storm, with CD Projekt RED promising an RPG unlike any other that would no only build on what they accomplished with The Witcher 3, but take the role playing genre to completely new heights. It clearly did not do that. Overpromising and underdelivering is a dangerous combination, and it was in full effect here, with Cyberpunk 2077 suffering not only from severe technical issues, but also a core gameplay experience that, though not bad by any means, wasn’t even close to delivering on the lofty promises that CDPR had made for literally years on end.
