There are few things worse than getting all hyped up for a video game only for it to come out (after many delays) and be a steaming pile of corn filled crap. But, we all know, this happens to gamers quite a bit. Part of the blame falls on us for letting ourselves get so excited and worked up before seeing final product. But a BIG part of this has to do with the developers themselves, who just LOVE to make promises about their game that they cannot seem to deliver down the road. I am not gonna cough here and subtlety say No Man’s Sky between coughs, but you ALL know what I am talking about.
We gamers now call it Molyneux’ing, and if that expression makes no sense to you (ya noob), click here to understand better. Many developers seem to be going that route lately and it only ends up ruining their game for everyone, because what we get promised and what we end up getting are two entirely different things.
But fret not if you have suffered from huge video game disappointments before, as most of us have too as the result of the ‘over hype machine’. This list for you ‘friendos’ out there to will help validate for you that you are not alone in that suffering.
