I was excited for Lords of Shadow 2 back then, but when I played it, I didn't enjoy it as I though I would....
Same goes for some modern game nowadays.... only a few really lives up to it....

When I think a game or a movie is right up my alley, I try to avoid any spoiler, even minor ones. This lead me to not pay attention to the red flags raised by some games. Luckily this happened basically only twice:

- Watch_Dogs (PC): simply unplayable at launch due to performance and bug issues. Then it was a crappy open world game like basically everything made by Ubisoft in the last decade (Rayman and M&M aside). Never bought another Ubisoft game ever since.

- Mass Effect Andromeda (PC): did not get into the early access (why should I pay for that?) and the day 1 patch saved me from experiencing a lot of bugs and most of the horrible animations, but it was a trainwreck in every aspect. I poured in it something like 10-15h hoping to get to the fan part, but when I realized what the game loop was about, the writing and the story weren't improving and the difficulty was basically provided by bullet-sponge enemies which either one-shot you or stay out of cover just to be hit, something clicked in my mind and I finally did me a favor and uninstalled it. My heart was crashed, I was really hoping this would atone the ME3 "disaster" (even though it was an ok game, in the end)... but, oh boy, was I wrong!

Honorable Mention:

- Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4): the teasers and trailers were amazing, the fans were enthusiastic and the graphics were amazing (I'm really into CG, by a technical standpoint), it sold like crazy. I thought it was finally a new awesome PS4 exclusive, but when a friend of mine gifted me the GOTY last summer I was really disappointed. It was another Ubisoft open world game, but more polished, with less bugs and with an interesting, but sloooooow story. To this day I'm still about 1/3 of the way into the main plot.

EDIT:

How could I forget Dragon Age 2? Dragon Age Inquisition was bad too, but DA2 takes the cake as most disappointing rpg I've ever played.
Oh, and Battle For Azeroth too, such a wasted potential... don't get me started on WoW/Blizzard Tongue

Now that I look at my list they are all recent games. Maybe it's a sign...
Consoles owned:
Playstation, Playstation 2, PSP, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, Sega Saturn, Nintendo Switch.

Sega Dreamcast, Wonderswan.

The first two titles that come in mind are Crackdown 2 for the Xbox360 and Alundra 2 for the PS1
both first chapters are great, the sequels... Dodgy

Suikoden 4 - not bad RPG ,but not worth Suikoden name,
Colin Mcree Rally 3 - PS2 game that is much worse than CM2 on PS1,
Spyro games on PS2 - New Begininig was still half good, but then they started to ruin it more and more ,especialy didnt like  Dawn of Dragons,
Legacy of Kain: Defiance - hated that they changed game camera from third person to some kind of static camera similar to Residen Evil games,
Diablo 3 - hated it so much that i had this in my sig for year on TIZ:

i have played it a couple of months ago on xbox360 and dont know if there are differences between versions

imo its a 'rose water' Diablo, a game with automatic pilot, more similar to a Sacred title

yes, they should have called it Sacred xxx

EDIT sorry for the font randomly change, im posting with phone and dont know wtf is happening  Confused

Diablo III is an insult to the memory of the first two games. Total tosh.
I own the 360 version and it sucks worse than a bag full of sucky things..
I waited years for it to be released, that stated it would be the LAST Bliz product I'd ever buy.
Still hold true to this, to the point, I even have a fixed version of Diablo/Hellfire/D2 LoD that run perfectly on 7+ systems,
and I still play them both (Hellfire was Sierra's unofficial expansion to Diablo)

I know there are a lot of people that rate Fallout New Vegas as their favorite game in the series, but I was really disappointed with it after the fantastic Fallout 3. I still completed it, and enjoyed it, but felt that it lacked a lot of what made Fallout 3 so good. It felt overly linear, and I'd exhausted all of it's gameplay within 40hrs (where F3 had kept me occupied for around 100hrs).
Not sure I could say that I'd had high hopes for it, but I'd certainly expected it to be at least "as good"... seems that the franchise has been increasingly deteriorating ever since.
