    I'm going have to say Evolve and Paladins

    I agree with you for Evolve. I remember I played the beta version and was quite disappointed. If it's less than $5, I may buy it then.

    All games people talk about in this topic seem hyped definitely!

    But I find 1 game hyped and it is an interesting one maybe: Half-Life

    I loved the game , but than it vanished in my opinion. Al the other versions are short unfinished and uninteresting , only glimpse of a new part.

    I actually really enjoyed Catalyst! I feel it was a really good game (Granted I got my copy though EA Access) The story is fairly good and the world is extremely cool to play in! A little flat for a game of that type but still, overall I thought it was a good game, don't let game reviewers be the people who say you like or dislike a game, try it and you can see for yourself if you like it or not!

    Haha, that's definitely good to know! I will try out the game for sure when I get the chance! :relaxed:

    This is tricky because unless the developer continually releases updates and DLC, then technically any game "falls into obscurity." However, most "big" games that have several popular ads and teasers and trailers, once released seem to become more obscure just because everyone is either over the hype or busy playing it. lol
    Now if you're referring to games that received negative feedback, that's a whole different discussion entirely(*cough* No Man's Sky *cough*).

    I dont think stardew valley went to 'obscurity' i think the game didnt had much more to show, too many people playing made that all secrets were discovered, but still some secrets stay 'secret'

    I actually really enjoyed Division... clocked almost 600 hours on it. Though I would admit I was lucky with drops and hit "Tanktician" status very early on in the first Gear Set series... After that, keeping up every patch was not too difficult.

    But I stopped recently. Graduate school got way too busy. Now I just play Overwatch whenever I have time.

    Let me put some fuel in the fire here ... but anyone remembers the project we were all waiting for - StarCitizen? I mean No Man's Sky was a flop at start ... SC? Did it ever even start?

    No Man's Sky. It created hype and it was a good idea but in my opinion almost the worst game ever.

    I actually liked NMS, but I did not see the hype or anything about the game before it's release, so I had no expectations (also the price tag should be alot cheaper), but nonetheless, I enjoyed a good 20-30h out of it, which is more value for your money than a 4 hour CoD campaign.

    Evolve just because it was SO BIG at PAX East and then fizzled into nothing so soon.

    From my point of view, to be fair, majority of the Pokemon GO players were only on it for the hype train. Once things got a tiny bit more difficult for the ones on the hype train, it just ended for them. I'm still currently a Pokemon GO player, not as active on it as I used to be, But I still walk out of the house to go catch me a Snorlax / Lapras / Dragonite / Larvitar / Tyranitar / Unowns and etc lel This is just my take on Pokemon GO.
