Weekly Webcomic Wrapup feels the sting of disappointment

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Aliens: Colonial Marines was a disaster. I think we can use that word, right? Development took forever and thanks to it being a terrible game that looked and played nothing like the previews shown, resulted in a lawsuit against publisher Sega and developer Gearbox. Yet this is hardly the first time gamers have felt the sting of being let down by something they hoped would be great.

This situation made me curious: what are the games that have failed to meet your expectations? Keep in mind this question isn't about which games you feel are bad or which games you think don't deserve their hype, but is instead about which games you were looking forward to and played, only to wind up disappointed. Since this week's question is a bit of a negative nancy, I'd also like to remind everyone to play nice in the comments and share your opinions respectfully.

Or, you could just check out and vote for your favorite webcomic! You know, whichever.
