When the Hype Becomes Too Real

  • Among my IRL friends, I was famously hyped for The Crew. Played the beta. Left a sour taste in my thumbs. I still stand that the announcement trailer for the game is the one of the best.

  • Titanfall. It was the beginning of next-gen and this was supposedly the killer app that was going to take us into the future. In hindsight, I don't think many people are hyped about this game anymore but right when it came out everybody was raving, and review scores were in the 90's. I popped it into my Xbone and was ready for some next-gen gaming and I was just disappointed. Just another multiplayer shooter + robots. And so little content to offer with that game, I would not consider it a finished game.
