Top 3 Most Disappointing Video Games of 2016 List, News & Update: 'The Division,' 'Titanfall 2,' 'No Man's Sky'
While it is good to focus on the positive and light events in gaming world as the year culminates, we can't simply swat away the worst video games of 2016. After all, we can hide behind the premise that everything is for the reason of documenting the "lessons learned" from these heartbreaks in video game industry.
There are titles coming in before the year ends so who knows if these video games will prove to be even bigger disappointments. Let us just hope that the remaining month is not going to yield bad games. We all know the feeling of being robbed upon purchasing a trash that some game developers disguised as video game. So, here they are - disappointing video games of 2016.
"The Division" by Ubisoft is actually an excellent tactical shooter that looks right for the first few hours then you won't mind that it exists after then. Blame it on short lifespan of coop mode and lack of nice sidequest, "The Division" is simply just a shooter. Further, multiplayer presented an opportunity for cheaters because Ubisoft character data are were stored in player's computer instead of a server.
"Titanfall 2" is a huge disappointment albeit being an excellent game. What dragged him into this list is the limited fan base that also hinders full enjoyable experience. "Titanfall 2" is mostly considered to be an Xbox One title although there are PC and PlayStation 4 versions as well. Lastly, the limited number of "Titanfall 2" followers can be traced from mistake in picking up release date where it was sandwiched with other AAA titles "Battlefield 1" and "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare."
This list isn't going to be complete without "No Man's Sky" on top of it. Hello Games and PlayStation shared the blame for heating up the whole title to the point the gamers are drooling, only to find out later that it was half-baked. Needless to expound, "No Man's Sky" is at least trying to fix everything with game contents and changes being introduced at steady pace.
