Games that disappointed (Blogathon 44/49)

There have been some real video game let downs in my life.

Final Fantasy IX.

I appreciated the FF franchise trying to get back to its roots with some of the character design.  However, the series roots also included great, lovable characters, inspired music, and solid plot (a la FF4 and FF6).  FF9 didn’t quite get those.

Star Fox Adventures.

If you bought this game expecting to fly a ship, like in other Star Fox games, you’re SOL.

Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor.

This was to be the best D&D game ever.  For all us fantasy junkies back in the day, we drooled all over ourselves every day waiting for this thing to come out.

Then it was released and we all bought it like chumps.

Do you recall being disappointed by any games in particular?

This is post 44 of 49 for Blogathon.

Total donors is at 255 (if we hit 300 by 7am tomorrow, even if those donations are just the $5 minimum, 20 campers at Camp Quest Ohio will get to pie Michaelyn or JT in the face)! There will be pictures. That link also has some other ideas for pledging for Blogathon. :)

You can still donate to the SSA by supporting other blogathoners, art contributors, personal fundraising pages or through a direct donation to the SSA! SSA Week lasts through June 17th. Spread the word!
