    All these games were ridiculously hyped, but didn't live to expectations IMO. Which would you say was the biggest letdown? I'd say farcry 2 easily - this game was hyped to planet jupiter and back. It had so much potential, I was dying to play...only to be let down.

    GTAIV. ugh. What a waste of money for me.

    It was the one I looked forward to the most on that list (the only one actually) though. So there ya go.

    Far Cry 2 was awful in my eyes, but I wasn't really looking forward to it at all anyways, so no big loss for me. :dunno:

    And why is Resistance 2 on there twice? What did you mean to put? :o

    Fable 2 gets my vote. Also another runner up would have been Star Wars Unleashed. The demo was great, but the main game felt like the an extended demo, and fuck that boss fight with the star destroyer.

    Killzone 2, I voted Resistance 2 though because I was so disapointed in it.

    KZ2 because after all the hype and how good it looks, it's controls were ultimate it's downfall for me. What a buzz kill. What a STUPID easy to fix buzz kill.

    Little Big Planet was supposed to be the game to sell 11ty million PS3's and it turned out to be an average platformer with a neat level creation system.

    LBP is the game of 2008 for me that exceeded my expectations. I bashed it up until it came out and then I ended up buying it. I still think the game is really unique and perhaps the best ps3 game to date.

    Oh yeah, it did come out this year. Bah... i just asked for it for my B-day and I asked for so many others from last year for my B-day, I just assumed. Whatever though...

    Speaking of though, I put it in for a little while today and it looks f'n amazing but again... after about 30 minutes I got so sick of having to wrestle with the aiming in that game that I turned it off. It's like they have 'mouse' accel jacked up too high or some shit. Or whatever their equivalant to Quake 3's Mouse Accel was.

    Tell me about it.
    I am half way through it and there is some sort of corruption going on that is keeping me from finishing the DLC.

    Some of those games kind of sucked but none were epic failures.
