Everyone cannot be a winner and that applies for video games too. There has been a lot such instances where an unexpected game end up being the most successful one. On the contrary, we have also seen a lot of games from famous franchises and studios not being able to live up to their expectations.
Today, we take a look at a few video game franchises which we thought would be great hits but things turned out otherwise. We have tried to point out the lowest points in such games in this feature.
1. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is definitely the most successful skating video game franchise. The first four installments of the series were massive successes.
Unique gameplay and varied soundtracks made the initial installments of the series great games. Pro Skater 2 and Pro Skater 3 are critically ranked among PlayStation and PlayStation 2’s best ever games.
Nearly thirteen years after the release of Pro Skater 4, Activision released Pro Skater 5 in 2015. The studio promised that the game would be a streamlined skating game during its announcement.
The fans too had a lot expectation from the game as the Pro Skater series was being brought back again after a long hiatus. However, the studio failed to deliver on that promise and hence the game was unable to live up to the expectations.
Hopefully we’ll see another good Tony Hawk’s game soon.
