    I'm disappointed that the "What it was supposed to be" part of Daikatana didn't start off with, "the game that was to make you John Romero's bitch."

    Too Human, surely, on counts of arrogance, complacency, and overreaching ambition. Community Choice for sure.

    I've only heard of one of these games and that's Duke Nukem.

    That tells me you're 12. Maybe.

    virtual boy kinect (disregarding sales, from a purely technical perspective) windows live shadowrun (the crossplatform online one) too human/hellgate london (though these could be considered 'disappointments' instead)

    too human

    Glad you drew the distinction that Shenmue wasn't a bad game, just one that couldn't possibly break even.

    I was kind of expecting pacman for atari with the whole bringing the arcade to your living room idea.

    I've played lair and advent, and I agree: they were horrible. Lair could have been awesome too, such a pity.

    I have to echo the Too Human comments. How did Shenmue make this list and Too Human didn't?? Jesus, all unsold copies of this game were ordered to be destroyed by the US court! Also, I seriously doubt DNF could be considered a flop. When Gearbox got a hold of it they obviously cranked it out with minimal costs and people who have more money than brains ignored reviews and invested heavily in the normal edition or the ridiculous "Balls of Steel" edition.

    I guess Shenmue would be considered a flop saleswise, but it doesn't really fit in with the theme of games that weren't as good as expected, or really sucked, like the others.

    switch Shenmue with Too Human, then your list is accurate.

    Surprised that Kingdoms of Amalur didn't show up.
  • jack-hentschell - January 21, 2013 2:45 p.m.

    Kingdoms of Amalur was actually a commercial success.

    Where's Too Human on this list?
