Which gaming series do you think is the MOST overrated? & include reasoning.
Without a doubt on my mind it goes to Halo. why you ask? welll.....
Halo: Combat Evolved
Halo 3: ODST
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
TBR: Halo 4,5,6
I'm completely convinced that the Halo series is the most overrated, it seems that you can put the name Halo on any game and immediately sell well. Which unfortunately some people think that sales=quality
Just no. You didn't even give a good reason why it's overrated besides it sells well(terrible reason btw). It really makes me question how much you have actually played of the series. If you give a good solid reason I'll let you pass, but the reason has to do with the actually game(s) themselves for example gameplay, not sales.
More OT: Imo there really isn't any franchise that is overrated besides COD games released after 4. Mainly because there was little change after that, shorter campaigns, and killstreaks became lame. Also COD Elite is a ripoff(Halo's had the same stuff for years for free).There are other game series themselves that I don't like, but I wouldn't call them overrated just not my cup of tea.
My reason: "I'm completely convinced that the Halo series is the most overrated, it seems that you can put the name Halo on any game and immediately sell well" Everyone here knows that no matter what game you put the title Halo on it will most definatelty sell more than a million. Should a game sell well just because tof the name? Anyways it's MY OPINION!!! you see other people agreeing with me that Halo is the most overrated so It's not like im the only one here. BTW I have played at least 5 - 10 Halo 3 online matches and i was so bored but I didn't want to hurt my cousins feelings so I kept it to myself. It seems that you clearly got mad because your use to halo getting positive feedback. I mean come on 11 titles with "Halo" on them? I know Final Fantasy has had a lot of titles also so you don't need to bring that up.
You judged the entire series by a few online matches? Halo is my favorite FPS and I don't even play multiplayer in it or any other games. Multiplayer just isn't my thing, but Halo's single player is so damn good I keep coming back to replay the entire series.
Oh and Halo games sell because they are of such high quality and people love them. It's not like the letters H, A, L and O have some magic ability to sell anything they are printed on. The name Halo is synonymous with quality, fun, and replay-ability.
I'm not telling you to like it, but your reasons for calling it overrated are pretty thin. How are you counting 11 Halo games anyway. Even with spin offs and the HD remake there are only a total of 7 Halo games. Halo 4 will be the 8th game with the word Halo in it's title. At 11 years that's only 1 game about every 1 1/5 years. I mean, she we force devs to not makes games so there are less of the ones we love just so they come out less often? That's ridicules.
Personally I don't think remakes, even ones are spectacularly good as Halo Anniversary really count as new games. In my opinion there are 3 main Halo games with a forth on the way and 3 spin offs in Wars, ODST, and Reach. All together that's just 6 games in 11 years. I wouldn't want to wait for Halo games like we have to wait for Half-Life sequels.
What is it about Halo that is so overrated? I don't just mean what you don't like about it. What do reviewers and fans claim about Halo that you feel the games don't live up to. I mean I'm not a fan of the Uncharted games, but I don't feel like they are overrated. I also don't care for big sandbox games like GTA and Elder Scrolls, but I don't think they are overrated either. I do think DK Country 1,2,3 are overrated because in my opinion they have mediocre gameplay, flat levels, pointless collectables, and stupid characters. However I think the music and graphics are very good. The DK country games have a lot of fans that claim them to be timeless classics without flaws so I think they are overstating it. Therefore in, my opinion, the DK Country games are overrated by its fanbase.
You can't just say, Halo is overrated because they sell millions and there are too many of them and then qualify with, "Anyways it's MY OPINION!!!". Of course it's your opinion and your entitled to it, but you should back it up with legitimate reasons or people like me and others are going to have a problem with what amounts to an insult to a beloved series of games. I mean if you want to say you don't like Halo because it's just not your kind of game, that's fine. But does that really mean it's the most overrated game series of all time?
