Post stuff that's in a game, (or not in it) that disappointed you

The bonus level in HarmoKnight "Your Bicycle" isn't the Queen song

Also, the fact Vaati doesn't appear in any other Zelda games makes me upset.

Uh, well
There was this game called Megaman 10
And it had a character named Sheep Man
I'm both disappointed that he existed, and that he has a ton of fan art.
Also, Vaati was in two games, Four Swords and Minish Cap.

I've never played Megaman, so I had to look him up.

I don't know why it exists either.

Also, I know, I just meant more than two

The fact that there were no partners in Paper Mario: Sticker Star was a huge letdown. Pretty much everything about that game was a letdown, from the level structured world, and the sticker combat (it was a good concept, it just didn't belong in a Paper Mario game).

Sheep look like clouds.

That's it.

I was deeply disappointed in the Mario and Luigi RPG 4. The game starts off well enough and has plenty of ominous ideas introduced, but it fails to deliver towards the end. Bowser ends up being the final boss for really no reason at all - it's nice and nostalgic to fight the more uncommon Mario enemies in the final dungeon, but there's really no reason they didn't pull a plot macguffin out of nowhere to promote the actual game villain as the final boss instead. It would have just clicked better.

The special abilities and general mechanics are ripped straight from the third game, basically making it ride the coattails of something a lot better.

Add to that the fact that the game never once stops handholding you and you have a game that talks a lot but says nothing. There's a fucking tutorial in the final fucking dungeon of the fucking game. Good lord.

Not to mention the childish underdeveloped plot compared to the previous games. Or the sidekick character's sacrifice at the end, which appears to be the game's one serious moment then they turn it into a joke at the last second.

Anyways, other than Dark Souls 2 not being on PC yet, Mario Galaxy 2 as a whole was a pretty big let down. They took a lot of focus away from the atmosphere of space and the cinematic that made things feel like they were actually important, and switched to way more blue sky levels, cheap nostalgia throwbacks and entirely dropped the cool and grand opening sequence so you could be introduced to the new villain Bigger Bowser.

you die at the end of persona 3, this is something they fixed in persona 4.

Sheep Man was certainly a letdown, but he was the least of MM10's problems. Mega Man 10 was a huge letdown.

I hear that Sheep Man may be based off of a book, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"

Sticker Star was so incredibly disappointing. Even with Super Paper Mario in the mix, I consider Sticker Star the black sheep (too much sheep) of the series. My only hope is that the next Paper Mario game isn't garbage.

DUDE
USE A FUCKING SPOILER
Seriously though, there are probably some people (like me) who haven't played Persona 3, and want to eventually.

The ending of Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate
(Though to be honest I expect no less from a a game of about the same quality as its ending)

You expect the ending of the game to be as bad as the game which has an ending that's bad
Okay.

The way in which expect is used doesn't necessarily imply judging the game from the last part.
I'm saying the game isn't very good, nothing more.

yeah i'd suggest he use a spoiler, but I also wouldn't suggest quoting him, or if you do, at least use a spoiler yourself.

Welp, persona 3 spoiled for me too. ah well.

This topic is turning out to be oddly meta

Even if people can complain about M&L Partners in Time, then it's still far, far more enjoyable than Sticker Star. That game is just completely pointless and i really hope this is both the first and the last RPG game that features no leveling in it at all. It's so dissapointing because i really didn't like SPM that much so i was hoping for something in the vein of TTYD again, but then this happens ;_;

This makes me quite sad, I personally loved SPM, in fact, it's probably one of, if not my favorite Wii game, so it's not always awful to branch out a llittle. But TTYD is probably one of my favorite games and they only used the formula for that for half of the series. If Sticker Star is actually this bad, then that would probably be the most disappointing game I've played.
