3. No Man’s Sky (2016)
This is because while No Man’s Sky promised an entire universe to travel through and literally millions of planets to explore, these all ended up being very similar and the experience began feeling samey after a few hours of play. Plus, cataloguing alien species and collecting minerals wasn’t so interesting as No Man’s Sky did not have the full-fledged trading and economy many were expecting. And the spaceship and first-person combat were not as exciting or large scale as promised either. This was an infamously bad video game launch then, and one that day one buyers of No Man Sky will have a hard time forgetting despite the substantial patches the game has received to date.
