Well, "overhyped" means a game that didn't live up to the hype, which is subjective to begin with. The only game for me this gen that TRULY felt overhyped was GTA IV. Other than that, I don't think many games this gen have been "overhyped', nope not even Killzone 2 or Halo 3 either...
You are right with your first part, but I do see Resistance 2 did not live up to its hype. I mean, we talked about R2 could do Gears of War 2 numbers, maybe even pass that. but that is just saleswise, quality seemed to be a nice 8.5 / 10 game.
But how can you say Halo 3 was overhyped?
It is heading toward 11 million (!!!), it received a 94 on metacritic, it is still the most played online console game ever? I think it did what it was supposed to.
GTA IV has great sales and great critics, too. But it failed to amaze players or fans of the franchise.
All the games you mentioned were hyped, but most of them delivered.
Errr......read my post again, I said NOTHING of the sort.
Edit: Perhaps you're talking to the OP, and even that wouldn't be fair, the article isn't the topic creator's either...
sorry, this was a question @ OP. I should have said that.
And I saw these posts in September 08 or something. People predicting R2 could do this.
There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.
A moment of silence would be appreciated.
