This year we have seen some amazing games come out, and as usual developers hyped up their games to promote sales. Promoting is not an evil thing for the most part, however when developers go overboard in hyping the game to no end, is when gamers should draw the line and take it with a pinch of salt.

Games like Assassins Creed Unity, Destiny, Watch_Dogs, were all decent games, but they did not live up to the hype that the developers set, and thus bringing our hopes crashing down. At every E3 or for that matter at most gaming events, a new game is announced and gamers are told what the game will contain and how it has amazing new features like never before, which results into gamers getting excited.

And as hype increases to an uncontrollable level, many companies realize that they cannot deliver the hype that they promised and so gamers are forced to hate the product and company with extreme prejudice. With that said here are some games that were hyped and in some way, didn’t deliver or meet expectations. Please note that the games on this list aren’t necessarily bad, but they represent what the developers promised and didn’t deliver.

Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands

After the enormity of success that was The Prince of Persia trilogy, Ubisoft  decided to create another Prince of Persia game, only this time, it was a interquel. Now obviously with the Prince of Persia title on the game, fans were super excited for the game and wondered what would the game be like. Sadly they were in for a major disappointment, as The Forgotten Sands under delivered by a lot. Overall, the game was rushed making it the weakest entry in the series.
