Your biggest gaming disappointment for 2011? - Page 30

post #291 of 309
Skyrim without a doubt...
I still have to jump through hoops to get it to start.
Hardcore regionlock on steam (paying for a VPN atm... why didn't I pirate again?), Instantly crashes, when it doesn't crash it manages to pull 30FPS on a monster rig like mine..., Graphics are ****, no directx 11 (they mentioned they would support it), and I still can not F-ing play Skyrim without it bugging out...

gg bethesda... please make more console focused **** for me to buy

it's a tie for me.

Battlefield 3 and RAGE.

Start with RAGE. I saw photos of the game and videos of the game so many months before its release and it looked so lifelike. It was over hyped to hell by everyone and their grandmama and upon release it looked and played like utter doo-doo. But what REALLY REALLY made it a huge disappointment for me was the response from ID. "It's not our fault..it's their fault" ID blamed everyone they could think of except themselves. They made a strictly console game, period, end of story and then got defensive when the PC community didn't swallow that lump of steaming poo. Any and EVERY texture up close, or hell even moderately close looks like something Mario 1 from arcade (not even NES mario) would turn his nose up at. Is that a magazine??? I dunno it's just a blotch overhere overdere. No support post launch, NONE. Is that 64bit executeable out yet, what about the 2nd patch?? Mod support?? I get that they are blaming AMD at this point, but the whole situation and IDs handling of it has turned me off to them completely. I will never again in my life purchase anything by them, I don't care if it is pure perfect 10 gaming godliness. the company has burned a bridge with me that will not be rebuilt


Battlefield 3 was my first true multiplayer BF game and I have this feeling that I missed out BIG TIME. I mean this one game drove my purchase decisions for the last year. i5 2500k, all for you bf, dual gtx 560ti 448's, all for you baby, 8 gig of ram, extreme3 gen3 mobo, water cooled cpu, it's all for you my sweet. Your videos and promises have lured me in and intoxicated me with its arousing aroma. WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT ??????What The EFF is this, no voip for when my friends aren't online??? Indestructible cars?? Boxes??? rocks? Lag compensation??? Console style UI??? Lag compensation?? Lag compensation??? Insta Spawn death...Sweet holy jeebus in heaven insta spawn death. Did I mention insta spawn death? Crashing, constant crashing, extreme sensitivity to overclocks, even stable overclocks. nerf, buff, nerf, buff what am I playing wow again?? Recon bugs, as in ...I pull the trigger, but where's my bullett??? Oh thats right this rock is actually rendered 50 times larger than is graphically shown. Vehicle rape, and I don't mean like Oh i ran in front of a t ank waving my arms. I mean i have fired 3 rockets at this thing only to "disable" it and have it turn to me and casually herpadurp blow me to pieces, so on and so forth insert vehicle here. But best of all, is everyone favorite thing to deny and defend: Hackers/Cheaters. They absolutely are everywhere, if you haven't seen one you are on a single server that you own and only play with family on. it's not just aimbotting or wallhacking anymore. It's no recoil cheaters, vehicle cheaters, no spread cheaters, stat padding cheaters, exploit cheaters. split my platoon in half and let me kill you cheaters. and EA/DICE/PUNKBUSTER ABSOLUTELY DO NOT CARE. Battlelog mods saying they need pictures, videos and the like to even take an investigation serious, punkbuster saying they don't ban based off youtube or screenshots or leaderboards and dice saying please use that teeny tiny ass button hidden away in the persons profile to report them, almost as a LOL@U. BumbleBee still playing and still cheating, enough said on that actually. Dude is a known cheater, and yet he only has his stats set back to 0...man don't let me get to ranting even more. The game was the absolutely positively most overhyped console game ever made, and the sad thing is, I still enjoy it, I'm still actually pretty decent at it..but i am genuinely disappointed MAJORLY in it.

I'm just so surprised to see all the BF3 hate.

This game has literally gotten 6 of my friends to convert to PC gaming, and we all squad up and play it nightly. We have a great time.


As far as my worst game of 2011, I can't really say. I have been more cautious with my purchases, and a LOT of games didn't end up making the cut. If I had to pick which game I was most disappointed that flopped, I would say Homefront first, Rage second.

I agree with this is pisses me off that this game is suppose to be realistic and when I am sniping and trying to aim through a spot that is clearly open the shot won't go through because the devs thought it would be funny to make the structure bigger than it actually appears

1st chapter is you being an errand boy. 2nd chapter is you being an errand boy in the caves. 3rd chapter was pretty sweet.

Game goes like so. city>mines>city>cliffs>city>city>mines>warehouse>warehouse>warehouse>warehouse>cliffs>city>caves>city>city>city>city>

Dead Island, saw the trailers saying to myself "that's gonna be the best zombie game ever, even better than L4D2!"

I downloaded the day it came out, most unpolished POS ever, repetitive gameplay (zombies respawn EXACTLY where you found them, everytime.), and the view distance was so horrible I could see shadows popping up right in front of me when driving a car.

So glad I didn't buy that game.

Then Homefront, hell anyone who played the demo knew after 10 minutes of playing it was crap and even worse for me due the game capping my FPS at 17 FPS.

MW3 for me. Thought i still play it once in a while. I hate most the maps, not all though. Most of them seem like they just put 1 or 2 buildings somewhere on the map, plop a bunch of random debris everywhere, and have 5 or more directions to shoot at you from, basicly meaning: no pinch points..like..at all. Getting shot in the back is the name of the game. Luckily Dome is one of the better maps, though its a little small but im not going to complain more than that since it is one of the better maps, IMO. Plus getting put into a hacked lobby by the matchmaking system, not cool, i worked hard on my stats (i even saved up MW3 experience point codes from Mtn Dew boxes) up to that point but they got boosted, so now there is no point anymore frown.gif Activision said specifically they wouldn't do anything about it either. Overall it was a let down for me all-round frown.gif

But on the bright side, i have more time for SC2 smile.gif Since i'm not playing MW3 much anymore.. I built my rig for SC2 anyways lol
