I'm not judging the game purely off that...if I was I woulda said it deserves a 0 for not including it.  Its not based on SSE, there should have been a new story mode that is able to compete with other fighting games.  Not having a major single player is a major flaw, worth way more than one point lower on metacritic.  If the next Mortal Kombat released without a story mode it would get ripped apart, but SSB got a free pass.  The fact is SSB has fallen behind other fighting games in that category.  


SSB got a free pass because of no story mode? Tell me does every fighter have as much content in it as SSB? or even close?

Tell me up to 3 fighting genre franchise's that beat SSB in these categorys...

~Number of Stages?

~Number of Playable Characters?

~Number of Soundtracks in the game?

~Extra Modes?

~Extra Content?

~Have over 4 players fighting at once?

 

(Cant think of any more to ask :-/

 I seen maybe 1 or 2 people here who said Nintendo is overrated that actually play their games and had good reasonings behind them.

Right, don't argue with them if they don't play Nintendo games. There's no reason to take their criticism so seriously.

And remember that you still have to be careful...

Yeah so rare^ I guess its as rare for Sony as well? Basing off you grasping for straws ignoring 3DS userbase and only taking wiiu's right? Guess we can do the same with the Vita and ignore ps4 user base. Looks like MS is easily the most popular of the three and will be by far lol!!!

I wonder why you're so angry and bringing up Sony and Microsoft when i was talking about Nintendo? You were banned for this lashing out in the past, but can't contain yourself. Stay out of a discussion when you can't handle other people's opinions.

I'll have to say Naughty Dog, if only for the way that studio's followers defend it so jealously. I'm of the opinion that Naughty Dog is one of the best developers of the last 15 years, yet the hyperbole and adulation that so often accompanies the mention of the studio turns even me off.

Just look at this thread. Critics of Naughty Dog have already been branded as "xbox fans," haters, and "envious" fans. 

Why, when someone picks Bethesda or Rockstar or BioWare, it's fair game, but when someone picks Naughty Dog, it's the result of envy or ignorance?

To be fair, the exact same thing is happening with Nintendo in this thread. Plenty of people are getting jumped on for criticizing them. 


Neither nintendo or naughty dog are overrated in my opinion. Both are good at what they do but they are catching a lot of shit for it. haha



For me, it was Irrational Games last gen. Obviously they're no longer around. Not quite sure who I'd say is most overrated at this point. Ask me again in a couple years

Nintendo.


Thread says overrated, not underrated.


Please, Nintendo is one of the most overrated developers.


Please the only thing thats close to overrated is this comment.

Like a couple users mentioned earlier here in this thread, is this really whats the most overrated developer or just the developer i dislike? I seen maybe 1 or 2 people here who said Nintendo is overrated that actually play their games and had good reasonings behind them. Thats Kumogli (damn srry for the butchering of the name).


Jesus you need to relax. You're quoting anyone who is saying anything negative about Nintendo and just repeating yourself. We get it you like Nintendo and that's fine, but guess what some people don't and that's also fine.

Personally, I do think Nintendo is overrated, especially in their 2D platformer department which is filled with rehashes. While they helped revolunionize the genre in the 80s and 90s they haven't done much to mix things up lately. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that some indie devs are strongly outperforming Nintendo right now in that department. Does Nintendo still create some good stuff, sure but when critics are praising anything and everything that comes out of Nintendo you will have people calling them overrated.

Cuz i called someone out doesn't mean i will get banned, im simply asking how that makes any sense?

Why you as a person think a developer is overrated? What makes you come up with your answer. Im all ears. Stating Nintendo has done little change in 30 years is beyond historical to me imo, especially when i see many developers releasing yearly ips such as COD/AC with little to no change.

FYI: I havent played the last 2 CODs, its not my cup of tea but i do really enjoy Halo as its my favorite FPS.

Nintendo stands out. Little change in 30 years!

These post are terrible, i really dislike it when somebody says [Insert Company] is bad "just because i dont like them" and never play their games. Its depressing and hilarious at the same time :-/

Why? If they don't like them, then of course they're gonna find them bad. And if they don't like them and find them bad, they're not gonna keep playing their games, are they?



for me it is Naughty Dog.....

 

 

 

 

 


jking!
can't even say that with a straight face. they are G.OA.T obviously.

I don't think some people in this thread understand that one can be great while still being overrated.

Anyway, I have to say Nintendo. Love them but there is a certain crowd, especially critics who simply have a hard on for anything Nintendo produces. While I agree the quality is there most of the time, I simply wouldn't call every game a master piece.

As for Naughty Dog, I can see why some people would call them overrated. Believe it or not, some people care very little for story telling in video games and look more for unique gameplay which something like Uncharted lacks imho.

You don't have to add unique gameplay to your games for them to be great. Furthermore, that's hardly a reason a company should considered "overrated", especially when their specialties are character, storytelling, and technical achivements - things they generally excel at. 

I see your point, but honestly I think their character and storytelling are mediocre (technical achievements I agree with you). I think they were much better during PS1/PS2 days (Crash, Jak, I love those games) than they are now.
