Top Ten Most Hyped Video Games That Ended Up Being Terrible


The Top Ten

1 Sonic the Hedgehog

Right where it belongs. It's not the absolutely worst of the worst as others say, but yeah it was bad. - SelfDestruct

I'd say it's the worst video game ever created.

2006 version do you mean

2 Watch Dogs

Still love this game

3 50 Cent: Bulletproof

This is a Thing that Exist if he didn't survive Being shot multiple times this game won't exists - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

Why the hell was this hyped?

4 Halo 4

Best Halo game in my opinion. Great storyline and action. Halo 5 was boring.

5 No Man's Sky
6 Duke Nukem Forever
7 Daikatana
8 Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
9 Call of Duty: Ghosts

Really any Call of Duty game after MW2 can take this place - FettiMC

10 Far Cry 3

How is this boring?

The Contenders

11 Aliens: Colonial Marines
12 Haze
13 Mighty No. 9

Why isn't this number 1? This atrocity is a disgrace to the Mega Man franchise. - PerfectImpulseX

14 Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse
15 Pokemon Go! Pokemon Go!

People still play this - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

This should be in the top 10 easily! - Userguy44

17 Destiny
18 Life is Strange

Cliché ridden in my opinion...

19 Wipeout: The Game

When was this hyped? - Extractinator04

20 Gundam Extreme vs. Force
21 Super Smash Bros. Melee
22 Ryse: Son of Rome
23 Need for Speed (2015)

This was based on feedback from the Need For Speed fanbase. So how could this be bad? Well, this is the answer. - SelfDestruct

24 Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified
25 Virtual on Marz
26 Mario Party 10
27 Rise of the Robots

Why is Life is Strange on the list? It's a great game and I don't remember it being considered as terrible.

Rise of The Robots was true disappointment back then. It had good idea and impressive graphics for it's time but the gameplay was trash.

28 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
29 Two Worlds

That's some voice acting (Obvious sarcasm)

30 Need for Speed
31 Paper Mario: Sticker Star
32 SimCity (2013)
33 Undertale
34 Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
35 Resident Evil 6
36 Metroid: Other M
37 Street Fighter V
38 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
39 Scribblenauts Showdown
BAdd New Item
