We've already had some pretty big and surprising flops this gen the likes of Driveclub, Halo MCC to Destiny and Batman.

Now there is a whole new hype train for upcoming games but not everything is going to receive the all mighty AAA reception at GS. I will add to games to choose from buy you can add your own if you choose.

Which one of these next 2 major exclusive games will flop?

1. Halo 5

or

2. Uncharted 5

Or do you think both will score AAA and choose another major upcoming game for a pending floppage exclusive or not?

Why only those 2? I don't think either of them will flop.

Considering there's little hype for the game, I'd say that's not a good choice. A game like Uncharted 4, Halo 5, or TR flopping would be way bigger.

Could be Tomb Raider, but I could see the next one being Horizon....it's looks great and all but I was really put off how the character commented on everything she did or how to do something out loud to herself. I really hope that is just a tutorial type level or was for show because I don't want a game spoon feeding me the whole way on how to play it.

Out of those two, I'd say Halo has a greater chance to flop

Nobody cares about that game, despite being exclusive. Seriously, no one cares.

^ This and Horizon.

Uncharted 4 will not flop. Don't know much about Halo 5 to judge.

I kinda doubt Halo 5 will flop. 343 has everything to prove right now, and all signs point to them doing a good job.

I'm not too sure on Uncharted 4.

Halo 5, definitely Halo 5. Ever since 343i got their greasy, fat hands on Halo they've driven it into the ground. Halo doesn't have the name it had 5, or 6 years ago thanks to them.

@ButDuuude: I smell your salt. Butthurt because Horizon was best new IP at E3.

Calling it a flop when we hardly know anything and it is at least a year from release is just hating.

Hardly a "big" exclusive... where dafuq do you see hype for it?

OT: Halo 5. The series is getting stale and the E3 demo failed to give a big splash.

Until Dawn is a disappointment already because it's just like Heavy Rain. No real gameplay, only QTE's.

If it played like Silent Hill series I would have been a bit more excited. as of right now it looks like one of those horror movies with teens that are low budget.

Maybe it will be a nice surprise who knows, but seriously fvuck Yoshida for green lighting another Heavy Rain esque game. we need more horror games from them by sony japan or they could have at least made the gameplay not like heavy rain.

looking forward to sony's Bend studio survival horror open world game.

Uncharted, like the Persona and GTA series are immune to flops. That said... my prediction will be Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Halo 5 won't break 90 on Metacritic while Uncharted 4 most likely will. People are raving over the UC4 demo while Halo 5 demo was a letdown.

I say Uncharted 4, that fake action and on rails stuff has got to get boring. For real, how the heck does Drake not get hurt? That shat is so fake.

You shouldn't talk if you have never played the game before because those complaints are so invalid.

Sure you do. All previous Uncharted looked more "fake"/linear than this and yet it scored critical acclaimed each time. You think that this will flop because of that? lol

Some may laugh but I think SFV will flop. Three reasons:

1. Capcom and Sony are hungry for money so they will try to suck every bit of $$ they can with micro transactions. (See: SF4 and Uncharted 3) This will hurt scores as reviewers are trying to act like they are for the gamer now.

2. Traditionalist fans may not prefer the new mechanics because they help "noobs." Many purists didn't like alpha and just want a good balanced SF and nothing new. They just want it to be like Madden and come out every year with no changes.

3. The recent Sony Curse. All the big games they have bet on have been flops imo. Games like Destiny, Asscreed and Watchdogs have been flops and under Sony finger tips.

I dont get this. What you mean costumes? As long as nothing is there to buy to disrupt balance I dont see the problem.

I think we also need a thread of what the next broken game will be. It seems to be a thread to release boken games and just try to patch it later.

I don't think either UC4 or Halo 5 will flop.

I'd put my money on Horizon, Recore, Quantum Break and Shenmue 3.

After Disaster Chief collection and Halo 4 being dead a month after release only die hard lems are still in denial that 343 can't handle a big franchise.

I'm not even really a fan of the Uncharted games, but I don't see Uncharted 4 flopping. As a matter of fact, I have a hunch it will be the best in the series.

Your prediction is pretty sound IMO. Halo games not named the Master Chief Collection have never flopped (Halo 4 got a 9) and neither has Uncharted whereas Shenmue, as much as I want it to be amazing, could turn out to be a mess.

halo & uncharted will sell in the millions even if the games are utter shit. you do know they are the major system sellers for each console, right? fans will hype both the games to high heavens, and everyone will end up buying it. if you're talking about the gameplay then both are equally prone to flopping though.
