Im of the belief that if uncharted 3 was actually two, people would talk the same crap about uncharted 2.

Rage, battlefield 3, Reach, halo 3, gears 3, halo odst

Age of Conan. :( Dynamic crafting system, castle sieges, non linear game play, breath taking graphics, open world...with that invisible wall to that area we haven't coded yet. Then they wanted naked people, breast reduction programs, and finally nipple removing. WTF - it got weird, weird, weird fast. /run

Dragon Age Origins for me. I could not stand the game play. Didn't bother with number 2

Most of the reviews were the most obviously bribed journalism ever.

Yep, with LittleBigPlanet Karting. Granted it wasn't THAT hyped and it didn't really suck that bad, but I was very disappointed. Thought us PlayStation owners would finally have our 'Mario Kart'.

The game was fun for a week but now I can't bring myself to play it.

Uncharted: DF
God of War
GTA IV

I didn't find any these games crap, just incredibly overrated.

Although the game didn't really have much hype behind it, I bought Shadows of the Damned last year during the summer drought, and that was a real mistake. I usually like Suda51's games, and the fact that Shinji Makami (Resident Evil) was involved had my hopes up, but no, the game was just a generic and bland RE4-wannabe shooter.

I kept thinking that the game would get better the more I played it, but it never did...it wouldn't have stung so bad if I had only bought it for like $20, instead of $60.

Deus Ex Human Revolution pissed me off. The combat was annoying, sloppy, and poorly designed. That and those damn boss battles.

Honorable mention goes out to Fable 2, even though I got it as a Christmas gift, I had never been so bored playing a game before. It was definitely one of those games where I was like "Oh, I haven't played that in a long time!" only to quickly remind myself why I stopped playing it. I must have forced myself to play it only to shelve it again a dozen times before I finally sold it. Good riddance.

Games friends told me were cool but I thought sucked:
Oblivion
Gears of War

Games with the hype machine behind them that I fell victim to:
Dragon Age 2
Final Fantasy 13

I wouldn't count god of war as a bad game, but with everyone hyping it, there was no way it could live up to what everyone was saying about it.

I was suckered into a game on grounds of being so bd it's good, then when I played it I was like, nope just bad...

Earth defense Force 2017, but I did get deadly premonition for the same reason, ended up trading it in before I ever opened it.

Neither game was crap, but I was severely disappointed in ME2 and DA2, but I don't regret buying the CEs.

Mass Effect 2? I always thought you really loved Bioware games. Nothing wrong with not liking either games, though. Just think it's interesting.

Mass Effect 2 took away a lot of the frustrating things about Mass Effect (the Mako controls, having to sift through tons of equipment, elevator rides, etc.) but also took away a lot of great things about Mass Effect (notably the exploration and the customizability.)

The galaxy felt a lot smaller in ME2 and it really felt like there was a lot less you could do in it, as you were pretty strongly railroaded to follow the script. It wasn't necessarily the direction I had hoped they would take the series in, but I liked it nonetheless.
