  1. Are u ? serious. Destiny wasn’t a let down. U guys probably never even played the damn game.

  2. personally the halo 5 ad campaign was meant to lie to us and mislead us

    atleast thats what i took from it

  3. Come on only Honorable mention for Watch Dogs…? That shit had me dying to play and by the time i saw the real thing i didn’t even buy it. lol

  4. i knew no mans sky was gonna be on here i mean its fun but the trailer made it look WAY more fun

  5. You can blame Activision for Destiny’s missing content. The DLC was originally going to be part of the game, but money grabbing Activision.

  6. #0.5 Pokemon GO–Released in July 2016, with the trailer showing tracking, trading, boss events, and the legendary birds, none of which exist as of May 2017. But you have to go get all the series 2 critters. Oh boy!
