What is your answer?

Hmm probably the ending to Mario bros 2...I mean c'mon, it was just a dream?

My original Xbox died right in the middle of a battle while playing Fable. That was pretty disheartening.

If BioShock Infinite doesn't live up to my sky high expectations, and it ends up being anything other than extraordinary, then that.

I don't know. It's been pretty disappointing that the Last Guardian has taken so long to release (assuming it ever exists). Shadow of the Colossus was my all-time favorite game, so I was pretty much hyped for the game before a formal announcement was even made.

Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light. I was so excited for new Final Fantasy, and then so quickly and so deeply disappointed.

The end of ME3, three epic games worth of build up for that garbage.

Assassins Creed 3 comes to mind. It was a good game and the ending was ok, but it didn't offer the closure I was looking for. Felt like Ubisoft just kicked the can.

GT 5, I mean six years of development combined with an 60 million dollar budget..... All that for a solid sim racer, nothing special. I was expecting far more. Still a solid game but not what I expected. Heck a large portion of the cars weren't even built new, rather GT4 cars from the ps2 upscaled. Wtf?

Oh and Alien:CM has to be n many lists. That entire event gets a giant wtf from most gamers.

When my first Wii stopped playing discs while I was playing Other M.

I went to the midnight release, was hyped for months on end about it, then a day and a half later I beat it with 90% of the promised features never showing up. Replayed it to try making different choices and it was the same game with a slight twist at the end.

Lucanus says:
Yeah I agree. Fable just wasn't the promised Project Ego.

Kirksplosion says:
Yep. I know that exact feel with Fable. I wasn't familiar enough with Molyneux to know of his over-promising nature, so I expected so much more from it (I also pre-ordered). Not only did it not deliver on the lofty promises, it ended up just being an overall average game to boot.

This is another huge disappointment for me. I was so excited about it when it came out, but damn, it sucked!

Hm, not really sure.

Maybe Valkyrie Profile 2.

A game wasn't as good as I hoped, gaming isn't the riskiest of hobbies.

The ending to Borderlands 1! Great game but what a disappointing ending!

Does Diablo 3 count if I found the core aspects of it so hideous that I didn't bother to try it?

EDIT: same question goes for Paper Mario Sticker Star.
