The world of video gaming has never been as vast as it is today. There’s a game out there for everyone and it’s become simply impossible to keep up with all the newest releases and updates. This sheer wealth doesn’t mean that every new game that comes out is a total home run, though. A larger amount of games will inevitably mean that the bar gets raised for all new releases that arrive on gaming platforms, and sadly some just can’t make the cut.
Some developers haven’t quite written off their love project as a total loss, however, and moved digital mountains to make their game fresh and slowly rerelease it the way it was meant to be. Let’s take a look at some of those games.
1. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
This was supposed to be a WoW killer at release, but the game was so bad the developers actually took it offline. After a few months of silence and hard work, the game was re-released under the moniker “A Realm Reborn”, and with its fourth expansion Endwalker coming up near the end of this year, the game is more popular than ever.
2. No Man’s Sky
When it comes to huge reworks, this game takes all the cakes. The hype level for this project before its release was impossible to achieve and sadly its release proved just that. Many people were disappointed, lots of refunds were issued and it seemed like this project was dead on arrival. The devs spent months almost rebuilding the game from the ground up, and it’s now one of the best open-world space sims money can buy.
3. Star Wars Battlefront 2
While the game in itself wasn’t bad when it was released, the big issue here was with its loot box system. Many countries deemed it illegal, and this forced EA to rework the entire cosmetic system in the game and for all their future games. If they didn’t, there was a high possibility of them not being able to sell their games in many European countries.
