List Rules Vote up the 2016 video games that just couldn't live up to the hype.

In 2016, there were a lot of really awesome video games, but there were also a lot of really terrible video games that didn't live up to the hype that came along with them. This list is made up of the most disappointing and underwhelming video games released this year, so vote up the games that weren't as exciting as you expected them to be and vote down the games that actually weren't so bad.

2016 has certainly seen its fair share of virtual disappointment from MOBAs, shooters, survival and role-playing games, among countless others. With all sorts of over-hyped promises and all-around issues including crashing servers, bad graphics, and repetitive gameplay, good games can have such bad problems that it pushes away the player base or just makes the game downright unenjoyable. Take all the server and login issues Pokemon GO had (and still has) and the downright unexciting gameplay No Man's Sky ended up having, for example. It certainly wasn't what anyone was expecting and ended up making the game more of a drag than hours of endless fun and games. Here are some of the most disappointing video games of 2016.
