Hype and expectation are dangerous things, but somehow, they seem unavoidable. They’re even more unavoidable, in fact, when a successful game or franchise is about to get a new sequel. More than a few times over the years, sequels have released on the back of immense expectations, only to fail to deliver on them spectacularly. Here, we’re going to talk about a few such games.

Most Pokemon fans will tell you that the series has been on a downward spiral ever since Black and White, and Sword and Shield are probably its lowest point to date. Even if you ignore the controversies surrounding the whole National Dex fiasco, Pokemon Sword and Shield are still disappointing games. The shocking lack of ambition, the almost complete lack of challenge, the excessive linearity- for all of these reasons and more, Pokemon’s mainline console debut fell severely short of expectations.
