You know what disappointed me the most this year, and not for regular gameplay or 'teh shineys' reasons. Soul Calibur 4 They sold out massively to Lucas Arts and their newest game, Force Unleashed. That game physically hurts me when I see the star wars stages in it, yet you see review sites claiming that it was this major 'nerdgasm' I admit I was never a rabid Star Wars fan, but I never hated it so adamantly as I did after this debauchery, it wouldn't have been so bad if they had been put into the extra character menu like the rest of the cameo / guest characters. But no way was that happening, not only are they in there, they get their own stages AND they occupy the top row, usually reserved for the main characters of the game. Honestly that was the biggest let down this year, we all saw FO3's letdown a mile away (at least we pessimists amongst the masses) but this one blindsided me, stabbed me in the back, and twisted three times over, stabbed again elsewhere, and broke the blade off.
