10) Assassin's Creed Syndicate
Syndicate makes no fucking sense on this list. Unity was slammed by reviewers so how would a sequel that got great reviews be disappointing. Holy shit you put Siege as a disappointing game then had the nerve to put it after Halo 5 lol. On top of that major fuck up you thought Mad Max was a disappointing game. Mad Max the game that literally no one thought was going to be even halfway decent, you put as one of the more disappointing games of the year. Then finally after all of that you don't mention Fallout 4 which was a step back in the franchise and one of the most hyped games of the entire year. Seriously man some of your lists are just so bad it's painful, and I think you don't understand what "disappointing" means either. I have no idea how you haven't gotten more dislikes with such a bad list.
So, the defining characteristics for a disappointing game are microtransactions, poorly ported to the PC, issues at release, but where was Mortal Combat X? Oh yes, one of the best of the year according to Joe. What happened to you, Joe? I miss the passionate no pulled punches reviews.
9) Need for Speed
Apparently the new Need For Speed is fun to play with friends and if you enjoy driving nasty cars that you get to customize yourself WITHOUT some restriction from the developer, then you'll love it. Loads of fun, but otherwise an alright game if all things are considered.
8) Beyond Earth Rising Tide
How can a fucking expansion be a disappoint for the Top 10 Most Disappointing Games of 2015?
7) Heroes of Might & Magic VII
I don't see how Heroes VII are on this list, apart from their bugginess. To me it is the first time since Heroes III that I can see an improvement in my enjoyment of the game... 2 was good, 3 was great, 4 was meh, 5 was meh with terrible controls in 3d, 6 was just out there somewhere... and 7 is the first improvement over 3 that plays similarly yet has some new stuff... I don't get the hate at all.
Side note for Heroes 7 - if you want to play a truly awesome game from the Heroes genre, play HOMM 3 Complete, that game has beautiful graphics (for its age), great gameplay, challenging campaigns and an extensive map editor. HOMM 4 is also a good choice, though the third game to me still is the best one of them all.
6) Batman Arkham Knight
How can you put in Batman Arkham Knight as a disappointment when it was critical acclaimed? If it's because of the PC version then you should've added Mortal Kombat X as well since the PC version is shit. Batman Arkham Knight was great game on console.
5) Halo 5
The problems with Halo 5 are valid, but they are not nearly as bad as he made it sound. Requisitions and micro transactions are quite bad, especially with a randomized req system, however the req system does not affect Arena in any negative way, leaving a pure balanced multiplayer with solid controls, although unfortunately there is a lack of game modes as of now. Since I am a HUGE Halo lore fan, I found the story enjoyable, not amazing or worth the hype, but it was alright. The lack of a proper boss fight with Locke was a bad flashback to the Didact "battle" from Halo 4, and by the end of the game I was beyond sick of the same boss battle 6 times over. All in all Halo 5 did not deserve the hype it had pre release, but it also doesn't deserve so much hate either, but to each their own.
You know Joe complained a lot about the Warden being reused(not defending Halo 5, don't even have an xbone), but he didn't complain about MGSV spoiling all of the enemies before you started a mission, and didn't complain that the "skulls" were used about 8 times, oh and how about Chapter 2 just being a repeat of chapter 1?
4) Rainbow Six Siege
The whole Rainbow Six tangent is just bizarre. Seemed really out of place and I think it's silly to call a game you like a disappointment over the nomenclature then swoon over a hypothetical singleplayer component that by all accounts was garbage. I've been playing Rainbow Six since the original and Siege is definitely a step in the right direction away from the Vegas games, which were clearly influenced by the rise of casual console first and third person shooters that came with the PS3/360 launches. It's not an HD remake of Raven Shield but it's an extremely tactical game that rewards positioning and map knowledge as much or even more so than sheer reflexes and aim.
My only real complaint about the game is the netcode and matchmaking. I'm surprised AJ didn't bring that up. 30% of the times that you enter the matchmaking system, you'll be booted out because of a 'Matchmaking Error'. The other 70% of the time it'll work fine, but maybe 40% of that remaining 70% of the time you'll be put on a team of all-Bronze ranked against a team comprised of Diamonds and Golds, all in the same clan.
Case in point:
Assassins creed is disappointing because no innovation, Rainbow six is disappointing because too much innovation. Joe is fucking stupid.
3) Mad Max
Mad Max was surely a solid game. I think it could have had a little more to it but overall I really enjoyed the game, especially with the finishing moves, customization ect.
2) Infinite Crisis
Infinite Crisis had MANY other problems. For one the roster was way too samy with 4 Batman and 3 or 4 Jokers, plus a huge amount of Supes and WWs, when it came to iconic different characters, Yes the setting was Multiverse and the new characters that got added later are from different IPs, but if you launch a game, with half of your characters being copies thematically which is a huuuuuuge disadvantage if you look at the other Mobas on the market. There were other things, being rather small nut I think marketing was just horrid.
1) Star Wars Battlefront
Now I'm not defending EA BUT credit where it's due they are giving out free updates and adding new skins and balance tweaks and the stuff in the expansions is said to be Cloud City with Lando as a hero, a Death Star expansion that will incorporate the famous trench run scene in A New Hope, etc. But that doesn't make up for the shit they shoved out at launch. I don't buy a game, see it's shit then wait several months and hope it improves, I expect a game I can play by itself with no DLC and stand on it's own two legs. I shouldn't have to rely on DLC to get a good experience out of a game. Star Wars Battlefront EA is such a disappointing game and that's what hurts the most about it because the potential was there but it was never realized plus NO CLONE WARS ERA when every other game in the series including Renagade and Elite Squadron on PSP had a Clone Wars era to play in.
Now if you actually read that mega sized rant then I'll leave you with another brick of text:
The the title of the video says that it's about games that disappointed Joe, but actually it's more like about games he simply didn't like. Like for example, Assassin's Creed. How the game could be disappointing if you do not expect anything interesting from the franchise in the first place? Or Mad Max, which is better than a usual movie-licensed game, so how it is a disappointment. And to Joe any game with micro transactions that isn't free to play is irredeemable. That's really what it comes down to. Also Joe complained about a new ass creed game even though they already did make an assassin's creed in medieval china it's called Assassin's Creed Chronicle's : China and it is a disappointing game if not it's the worst assassin's creed game out there. Idiot can't even be bothered to do research.
Games which should have been on the list but were probably removed because Joe is a fucking hack and shill.
- Fallout 4
- Witcher 3
- The Phantom Pain
- Call of Duty Black Ops 3
These games should have been on the list for obvious reasons, nuff said. Also look forward to the Top 10 Controversies of 2015 in 2017! And notice how half of the list doesn't have an angry review this channel is a joke now
