<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



But to be dissapointing someone would have had to be excited by that game :-"



Yeah, you're right. I guess we should start a new thread for the flat out crappiest game ever!! :lol:

NWN for me. *sigh* I had such great expectations for that game, and then I loaded up the game... played for a bit, and after a few minutes, the game started slowing down... and then chugging... and then it crashed to the desktop. 'Ok, no biggie" I thought. "I'll just start it up again."

Corrupted video display. Reboot.

Downloaded some older drivers, since I was already using the current ones for my Radeon 8500 card... still no luck. Eventually, I found a combination of drivers and a version of the game that seemed to coexist all right, although at a pretty significant hit performance-wise (took a few day before I stumbled upon it, but all was well), so I settled in and delved into the greateness that was the NWN OC.

Yak.

All things considered, it wasn't the worst game I'd played, even if it was a flat, repetitive affair in both gameplay and graphics, but after anticipating the game for soooooo long...

Yak.

PoR2 might have gotten my vote in this category, but I'd followed the development of that game for a while, and after seeing the high turnover rate of 1) developers, 2) designers, and 3) rule sets, I couldn't for the life of me see how they were going to deliver on everything they were promising. I didn't really have high expectations for that one in the first place, so it was hardly a disappointment when I picked it up in the bargain bin. On the contrary, considering all the crap the game was receiving online, I went into the game automatically assuming that my Windows installation was in mortal peril. Not only did it not wipe out my OS, the game didn't even crash.

"NWN was neither. And 90 Dollars? Are you including expansion?"

$90+ just the original game. Looking back I've spent adecent amount of change on NWN in the last few years.

$200 for the 3 games than another $70 for the Platinum Edition as I gifted my old copy to my brother for his second computer.

Then about $100 on the various manuls/strategy guides.

WOWSERS!

Funny thing, it was all worth it even though it isn't perfect since I still play it lots 2 and a half years after its initial release. That's staying power!

Anyways, I'd have to say DD was a dissapointment as well due to all the 'net hype for an actual RPG with it and all it was a wannabe Diablo with role-playing elements.

LH wasn't bad though I didn't play it long. As for one who said people were expecting a BG with Special rules.. well, people were expecting that as that's what they were basically led to believe..


That is all. For now.

Ώ90 $ NWN? Spain NWN 49.95 €, SOU 29.95€, HOTU 29.95€, Platinum Edition 39.95€, and when SOU was released NWN+SOU 49.95€. I bought NWN+SOU and after HOTU total 78.90€, less than 100$ but the three games. Volourn you have to change the store where you buy the games "te vieron cara de tonto" :shifty:

I'd say Commandos 3. The first two games were excellent, they were very intensive, innovative and well balanced, but C3...oh boy. Everything that made the first two ones great was gone in C3. WORST GAME I EVER BOUGHT.

Short as hell, too.

In answer to the question, I'd say Ultima Online. I was a naive fanboy for it before it's release, believed every word the Developers said.

The result is the bitter, cynical black-hearted SOB who is currently writing this message. :devil:

Lionheart. As much because I thought the concept had so much potential and I convinced myself to ignore all the signs that it was never going to even come close.

Why did you pay 90$ for NWN?? Are games that expensive in your area because I bought it the day it was released and i payed around 40$ for it, either you are one big sucker or your game stores are some of the biggest rip offs I've ever heard of :devil:

Volourn would be quoting prices in Canadian dollars, and likely figuring in the tax as well. $90 CDN when NWN was first released sounds about right. Atari retailed that thing at a massive price; I often saw it at $79.99 CDN at release.
Now, I see the Platinum edition for less than the price of one expansion pack.

I think I've mentioned this before, but I played Daggerfall like a nut (only stopped because my hd crashed a few months back, actually). Naturally I awaited Morrowind with great expectations, and I even pre-ordered it from the US (in a special, more expensive box)..

Morrowind is the most disappointing game I've ever played. And expensive too.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I forgot about Morrowind!

Morrowind was a huge disappointment for me too.
But Daggerfall still rules!

In chronological order of purchase:
  • Deathtrap Dungeon
  • Tomb Raider III (and IV, shame on me for being naive)
  • Master of Orion 3
  • NWN Gold Box thingy (NWN+SOU)
Mind you, there is a lot of crap out there. I think I managed to stay clear of most of it though (except the above mentioned) :">

I would say NWN .. I bought the game the day it came out and after 20 minutes I was so bored I never touched it again ..

or Lionheart .. same deal .. never got past Barcelona! tried several times! but I just get so bored that I feel a need to go to sleep after 20 minutes ..

which is really strange, since I love playing games like Europa Universalis II where you can stare at the screen for 10 minutes without doing a thing ..

seriously? good thing i didnt buy mine right at release. i got the gold edition one (came with sou) for $49.99.

as for most disappointing game....probably star wars: battlefront. it wore out its fun factor after about 2 days (thats including multiplayer with buddies). not worth the $70 or so i spent on it. :-

Not quite. When it was released, it was ~60 € methinks. Nowhere near 50, otherwise I would have bought it considering all the hype about it. That was before I was disappointed by uberhyped games. :)

Anyway, I would say Doom 3 and Half-Life 2. I wonder why I keep playing FPSs at all. :)
