The Most Tragic Game Reveals Of All Time
Game reveals are meant to be exciting, they’re meant to blow us away. That’s not always the case, though, as Final Fantasy 7’s recent reveal for PS4 at PlayStation Experience proved. When the Final Fantasy 7 logo popped up on screen, everyone was expecting news of the remake fans have been clamouring for. When it turned out simply to be a PS4 port, disappointment was always going to be the reaction.
That terrible Final Fantasy 7 reveal has inspired us to look at back at the worst, most embarrassing and tragic game reveals of all time.
When your showcasing a bit of software that lets you play drums, a la Wii Music, what you don’t want is the drummer demonstrating it to find it impossible to get a solid beat going.
That’s exactly what happened at E3 in 2008.
Talk about painful to watch. This reveal of Rock Band clone Rock Revolution couldn’t go any worse, with the ‘guitar’ player messing up so badly that they fail the song. Not best advert for the game.
We challenge you to find a room of people who care less about what they’re being told about. When you have to follow up a joke with the acknowledgement, “not funny”, things aren’t going well.
