New or old.

I’m not familiar with many but I’d say Kingdom Hearts 3 was one of them. Not for the loyal fans but for casual players like me, yes. Psychonaughts 2 might be one as well.

Borderlands 3, to an extent. Maybe the FF7 remake.

Duke Nukem Forever. Took so long it became a joke, and when it came out it was--surprise surprise--a joke of a game.

@speeny:

Kingdom Hearts 3 turned out to be a total letdown for me. It wasn't even worth the wait.

The Last Guardian PS4 comes to mind and it took a decade to get that game release and the hype surrounding it died off. I wasn't even excited picking it up and decided to wait for a sale after release. Played the game and I couldn't bring myself to get hype while playing it.

Putty Squad took from 1994 to 2013.

Though from my understanding it wasn't in development all those years, System 3 cancelled the game and came back to it a decade or so later.

@davillain-: That really does suck. I remember it was a very underwhelming release. I really loved what I played of ICO.

@nepu7supastar7: Agreed. It felt so rushed. The gummi ship content was complete trash too.

What I didn’t like is that all of the worlds were shown off before release. (No surprise worlds, what?!) Kingdom Hearts II is so much better in my opinion.

I concur with KH3. All that hype and wasn't what everyone expected.

I also like to add FFXV. So many years of development and speculation, and we were left with an incomplete game with the Day One edition. Then Square-Enix repackaged the game a few years later FFS.

With episodic content and generic hack-and-slash gameplay, Final Fantasy VII Remake is destined to be a game with "all flashes zero substance".

For me it's Yandere Simulator. I used to be so exited for the game, but after like 4 years of "I didn't manage to make much progress on the game" I just got tired and grew out of my weaboo stage.

Alan Wake the story and characters are great but the gameplay gets repetitive the game was originally suppose to be open world I wish it stayed that way the game needed more variety. Shooting ghost like enemies isn't as satisfying as shooting normal human villains.

@warmblur: Wow I didn’t know it was originally going to be open world. I think it would of been much better that way.
