Dark Souls 2
It's one of my favorite games. I love it. But I really feel like they just sat on their laurels for this one, all they really did was make another Souls game and make it bigger. Sure they made a few change-ups that people will argue endlessly on and on about which Souls game is best, but the fact is that they took away and left out as many good things as they added. They made a "bigger" game and figured that was enough, but they contracted and condensed on some of the game's key concepts instead of expanding and growing new and interesting interactions. They made the game bigger and the gameplay smaller.
TDU1 was the first iteration of an awesome idea. Test Drive Unlimited 2 was supposed to fix all of the problems and be awesome. And it did fix a lot but also screwed up a lot more by trying to fit into some story driven concept of what other racers were instead of expanding the original vision. Plus they had a sh*t budget, thanks Atari. Forza Horizon tries to pretend to be open world, but its really just trying to make all the walled in track feel organic enough that they can call the over-sized racetrack a "world". I'm still waiting for a quality racer that tries to do what TDU tried to do - open world racing with everyone and everything in one place. Cars, Bikes, Asphalt, and Dirt all in one place, tracks in the world instead of in the menu system, a butt-ton of cars and racing, and an actually open world fun enough just to drive around in. Will someone actually make a good game that executes on the ideas shown off in TDU1?
I only get disappointed by things I love. I mean, stuff like inFamous, how could you not expect to be let down? And if your expectations are met, is it really disappointment?
