In the video games industry – in any media industry, for that matter – hype is pretty much unavoidable- but it can also be a very dangerous thing. Because while some games can live up to all the hype surrounding them – based on how they’re looking prior to launch, or who’s making them, or what series they belong to – others fall flat in their attempts to do so.

There have been quite a few of the latter this generation, and in this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen of those. Do note that you might find a few titles mentioned here that actually manage to turn things around eventually thanks to great post-launch support- but for this feature, we’re looking only at the state of these games at launch.

FALLOUT 76

What a colossal screw up this was on Bethesda’s part. Let’s just ignore all the things that went around the game, and focus on just the game itself- because even that was bad enough to leave a terrible stain on Bethesda’s reputation. Fallout 76 was a broken mess of a game at launch that was lacking in any kind of a souls or identity, and felt like a hastily put-together cash grab that failed to understand what Fallout was all about. Bethesda are making efforts to turn the tide, and they’ve got some new things planned for the game in the coming months- let’s see how it pans out.
