Games that lived up to the hype

Perfect Dark is the first one that comes to mind. Lived up to my expectations and more.

Starcraft

Quake - (though due in large part to Team Fortress)

What are some games that completely lived up their hype for you?

Everything id has released is always super-hyped, but always lives up to it.

I would disagree about ID. I loved Doom 1&2 and Quake but Quake 2 was really disappointing to me, just seemed like more of the same turned up a bit.

Perfect Dark more than fufilled it's role as the sequel to Goldeneye. I am glad they didn't make another PD game on gamecube or xbox. That game just was perfect pun intended.

Vice City

Gran Turismo 3
