What was hugely hyped up, but flopped?

This can be anything be it video games, devices, phones, movies, albums, ect. 

I feel one of the biggest flops as of late has been Destiny. That game was just so hyped that when it finally came out (saying it would be a 10 year game), it lasted 2 years and basically peaked in the first year. Traaaaash.

My career path that my parents had for me when I was a child...

 

HA! Same. I was one of those kids growing up where my parents planned what I did and where I was going to college. I went, but I dropped out. Was a fun Christmas that year. lol

Damn....memories!

I had one set of ideas (who doesn't want to be a fighter pilot growing up after watching crap like Airwolf, Topgun, etc). while my parents of course had similar ideas but in more practical routes (plumber, electrician, etc.). Then there was the ultimate option: live at home while Ma and Pa pay for everything, leave you to do whatever it is you felt you needed to do to "find" yourself and then just support you when you had discovered online gaming that allowed you to never leave the house.

I eventually chose neither option (because two of them were never really options anyway with the third being ruled out because I'm blind as a bat).

Back on topic I remember always wanting to get the N-Gage thing that was a mix of a cell phone and a hand-held gaming console. It was too expensive (and hard to get hold of locally) at the time but I still wanted one with a passion. It did appear to fail someone badly though so I should probably be thankful for living in a shit-hole country lol. It had bomberman dammit!

I remember these! There was something else like this. It wasn't a phone though it was a handheld something that can go online I think. I can't remember what it was called but it flopped harder than a box of bricks. My mom actually got me one. I only ever used it to play wheel of fortune.

Was it maybe the Gizmondo? I also remember reading about it back in the day but they didn't make it our way

The apple that looked like a coffee machine that had made love with an ATM.

20th Anniversary Mac (1996-1997)

20th Anniversary Mac (1996-1997)
Apple's Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh is a limited-edition personal computer that was released in celebration of the company's 20th birthday. It cost almost $8,000.

Despite its poor sales, the TAM remains a popular item amongst dedicated Macintosh collectors. As of 2010, complete working machines with boxes were selling for $1,000.
