Default The most overhyped games...

With the recent Oblivion release what where some of the most hyped up games that you can remember? I'm talking over the top on edge, about to pop hype.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty on PS2 (killer killer demo, biggest letdown ever in video game history - thx to the blonde man)

Half Life 2 (I should dig up the old threads on this one)

Doom 3 (anyhting new from JC is a good thing; good but not up to all the hype)

World of Warcraft (I went the EQ2 route due to EQ1 years, just recently got on WoW)

Oblivion (of course)

i agree with basically all of them except for oblivion, though it was extremely 'hyped', it met all my expectations and more

I have a friend who keeps trying to get me into WoW. I take it that it isn't an uber game like people seem to say then? What's wrong with it?

Not saying Oblivion is a bad game (it's the greats RPG of all time IMO), just saying how hyped we were about it (1st game to hit all my expects)

Deus Ex 2 was hyped until the demo was released.

Default Re: The most overhyped games...

Do you mean hyped the most or hyped and then let down?

Oblivion was probably the most hyped game I've seen recently, but it lived up to my expectations.

Doom 3 on the other hand was hyped a crapload and turned out to be... well... a shooter, that wasnt really scary and wasnt anything like Doom. What a letdown that was :\

Just over hyped. Forget let down parts.

I want to add:

Diablo 2
Warcraft III (never played since I can't play an RTS to save my life)

Doom3 was probably the most hyped game in recent memory.

I think all the AAA titles are over-hyped but I'd say the one over-hyped the most ever would be Half-Life 2. Mostly because it was probably the most anticipated title and then the delay added another long period of hype while everyone waited for it.

Well pc games, yeah so far Half-Life 2, that extra year really pissed me off, but man did it hype me up good as each new screen or video came out.

I'm currently pretty hyped for condemned and ut2k7
