I know I won't enjoy playing them, so why buy them to begin with.

This was just a feature added to shoe-horn microtransactions in the game, and this game is a single player game not multiplayer. I wish the developers spent time working on the actual game than this throw away feature. Lastly the microtransactions in the game like buying extra Praxis points or Credits only works for one play-through which is quite ridiculous. I just hope they don't do this for other sequels in the Deus Ex franchise.

Apparently the feature was slap dashed in at the last minute (last few months of development) on a request from Sqenix execs. Given they are the publisher for the game I'm doubtful you'll see this trend go anywhere...it's more likely to increase.

Hey! This thread is about disappointing games, not games that are so good they deserve to be in the Smithsonian.
Frostilyte wrote:Hi all,
Asked a few friends this and got a few different answers, but I'd like to know what game disappointed you the most this past year. Doesn't have to be a game that came out last year, but it does have to be something you played last year. It can be something you were looking forward to that didn't meet your expectations or something that you played and simply couldn't enjoy.
For me it was Overwatch. Yes that game so many people enjoyed. I played about 12 hours of it across 2 different beta periods on PC and it just never clicked with me. I really like the look of it artistically, I really enjoyed the animated shorts, and I adore the personality and charm that were put into each character. Despite this I just couldn't seem to enjoy playing the actual game. I was really looking forward to it, but after 2 separate attempts to get into the game and failing to do so I ultimately didn't purchase the game and felt rather disappointed.
So, what was your biggest gaming disappointment in 2016 and what exactly about it was so disappointing?

Seems like they missed the secret sauce that made the first game great. Sure it looked pretty in the Frostbite engine, but hiding all of Faith's cooler moves behind a skill tree was annoying.
Think this game could've done with another 6-12 months in the oven, don't think we'll ever get a another Mirror's Edge game.

I grew up on Nintendo stuff and only "recently" switched over to PC, which gave me a much wider array of games styles and genres to try. As a result part of what I play is "hmm...this looks interesting", or "I wonder what all the hype is about".
