Knights of the Old Republic 2 was beyond disappointing because it was released on Xbox before PC, and it was rushed and buggy as heck. So if you bought it for Xbox, there was no chance of it ever getting fixed because it couldn't be patched like a PC game.

AMD 3900x
32GB RAM
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB

A buddy on mine had Old Republic and it brick his console, no idea why they would rush it in that state

Mario Party for the Switch. One of my favorite game series but now Nintendo has a chance to redeem itself with Mario Party Superstars. Please, lord, please.

everquest next.  they never launched the actual game and instead just released a half-assed map editor they called a separate game.

No Man's Sky is definitely up there.
Halo 5 Guardians too.

Something about a PS5 with no games to buy

Cyberpunk, Crackdown 3, Evolve, and No Man's Sky (though I love that game now).

Cyberpunk for sure. To be so hyped and for it to fall so far from grace. I don't know if it will recover.

Cyberpunk wasn't that bad as a game, but it was just way to overhyped, oversold and deceptive. Anthem never made it out and No Man's Sky flopped heavy. NMS was at least able to recover somewhat.

How is Duke Nukem Forever not top on this list? Daikatana Should be number 2.

Anthem, by far.


I bought Anthem a few months ago knowing it wasn't very good, but it was on sale for $8 so I said sure why not. Well, long story short I feel robbed of $8. It really is just pure crap and I'm surprised it's as bad as it is.
 
Another funny thing is the very next day after I bought it they discontinued Anthem Next lol.

Cyberpunk, I knew it from the beginning that this will not live up to the hype.

I am pretty sure they just gave up too! Like flat out stopped updating things, no new content, just dropped a steaming pile and left it.

Duke Nukem Forever was my first thought. 15 years of development and hype for a junk game.

Death Stranding has got to be the most boring game I tried to play so it tops my disappointing list!

They came out with worse physics than games from a decade ago and some people are still defending them

Every game that's been released since the death of dedicated servers has been disappointing

I'm gonna say two of my favorite games.
The first is Diablo III, at launch day it was awful, for the few who could even get into the game servers.
The second one, and I'm astonished no one mentioned it, is Final Fantasy XIV 1.0.
It was way too tied to its precedessor (XI) in an era where MMO where moving in a total opposite direction. And be warned, being "as XI but with better graphics" wouldn't even be all that bad, the fact is the game come out grindier than XI, with almost nothing to do except levelling up and buggy as sh*t. And it stayed that way for a loooooooooong time.
Eventually, Yoshi-P came on board, it brought some content on 1.x game but, most of all, he had to courage (him and whoever at SE had control at the time) to trash basically the entire game and develop it almost from the ground up WHILE STILL SUPPORTING 1.X.
There's a wonderful three-part two-hour(ish) long documentary from No Clip on the whole story, it's such a story and such a ride I suggest you try and take the time to watch it.
