What games have you guys played that you may have been excited for based on the trailer or word of mouth but then turned out to be boring?

Grand Theft Auto 4. It was a prettier version of San Andreas with what made that game fun sucked out and realism added.

Zelda Spirit tracks. The actual game isn't boring but having to ride that train over and over again gets tedious and verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry boring.

I wouldn't say "bored" as much as "overall disappointed," but RE 5 :-/

I agree. I got bored about an hour into each.

I forgot about LA Noire. That's the only game I ever fell asleep while playing.
Seriously, I was driving to a destination and the next thing I knew I startled out of sleep by my car crashing.
Granted, I was tired when this happened but I've played games tired before and never had this happen.

I agree with Oblivion and Fallout 3, yet I enjoyed Skyrim and New Vegas. Hmm.

I fully agree with Castlevania: LoS. I only got past the first boss and gave up out of disinterest. Bought the collectors edition too and had more fun looking at the case than the game. For the record I don't like God of War so that may explain it.

I think Oblivion and Fallout just take a bit to get into. An hour is hardly enough to get the basics of the game. FO3 technically doesn't even start until you leave the vault which easily takes about an hour.

I only put a couple hours into Oblivion before tapping out, but I played Fallout for roughly 10 hours before giving up. I just got no satisfaction from playing either game. Combat was boring, NPC's were lifeless, and it took so long to get anything accomplished... I don't care if a game lets me do everything if none of it is presented in an enjoyable or interesting way.

See, I love the GOW series but just couldn't really get into C:LoS for some reason, went back a couple of times to play this but just get bored with it fast. Game just feels a bit generic to me, like a Dante's Inferno clone.

Madden, Tiger, MLB 2k... I think it's hard to get excited about an update. The feature additions are never close to as exciting as you think they will be and at the end of the day you end up with more of the same. In Madden's case I've been waiting since like 2000 for innovation. Having the only license to make the games makes Madden a particularly bad update in my humble opinion. I still break out Tecmo Bowl because it has more fun gameplay than any Madden I may have ever played.

Let me clarify: I put in an hour AFTER leaving the vault. I won't say Fallout 3 wasn't fun, cause it was...but it just got boring and like Emu said: it took too long to get anything done.
