Oh, does anyone remember Battleborn? I remember Cricket started streaming just to show me that game, and that game was destroyed by Overwatch. Poor Battleborn. It actually looked pretty good...

I do remember Battleborn, but never took interest in the game myself, although did read your (Maniak's) blog post about it, and watched you play it. Don't remember much about the game except it was seen similar to Overwatch, thus becoming quite obsolete pretty much because of that unfortunately.

There's probably a game or two I should know (don't think I own them), but have forgotten about because of how bad they did. XD Knew of Star Wars and No Man's Sky.

I'd call that more a victim of circumstance rather than the game itself having a poor launch. Similar to MotorStorm Apocalypse having its launch affected by the earthquake in Japan right as it was about to launch, forcing it to be delayed and then releasing quietly due to the advertising budget already being used for the original launch.

Yeah, Battleborn doesn't qualify. The game itself was fine at launch, from everything that I've heard. It just released at a really terrible time (near the same time as Overwatch, if I remember correctly).

Terrible timing for sure, but not a bad launch itself.

Battleborn is basically what I feel could have happened if PUBG and Fortnite released close together. Neither are necessarily bad, one just has a lot more marketing and popularity behind it to make people overlook the other one.

Socom 4 was pretty bad. It released and immediately after PSN was hacked and down for a month. Socom was always an online game first, that’s where you it’s userbase mainly played and once PSN was back it pretty much killed that franchise.
