Hype has its pluses and negatives. One of the negative side-effects is the constant rising of expectations, thereby creating hopes that can't possibly be fully realized.
So which of the hyped titles of 2013 do you think will fall short in delivering the goods? Do you think it'll be Grand Theft Auto V , just because a whole lot of franchise followers are still hoping for a game closer to the old-school PS2 iterations? Maybe GTAV will in fact be more like GTAIV, thereby disappointing that crowd. Yeah, you know who you are.
Or maybe you don't have the same faith in Naughty Dog as others do; maybe you're a little leery about their attempt at an action/adventure with survival elements. Then again, there's Bioshock Infinite , which has been delayed a few times and reports of internal dissent at Irrational Games has been relatively well justified (due to the numerous employees who left last year). So perhaps that has you nervous. Or there's Beyond: Two Souls , which is likely to invoke the ire of Heavy Rain haters everywhere.
I don't have a pick 'cuz I don't like to be too pessimistic these days. 😉 But I thought it'd be worth discussing, especially because we've spoken about the detriments of huge hype at PSXE before.
