Forums - Gaming Discussion - YOUR 5 most overrated games of last generation

Multishanks said:

It's pretty straightforward. A game that really didn't match up to all the praise that it received or the hype you had for it. Honestly, the last of us was going to be up there for me but I really was hyped for it to begin with so i didn't include it. So that gives you an idea of how i personalized it. Feel free to throw in an explanation or two.

 

Good stuff by the way.....just keep it clean. And some said how did God of War Ascension make it on my list. Because of the awesomeness that was God of War 3.


Oh Right thanks for clearing it up . I was just making sure it just was not another bash any popular game you dont like. I could do that easily.

Well keep FF13 on the list

2. Smackdown games. now called WWE games. I honestly can not tell the difference between smackdown shut your mouth and WWE 2013. A few gameplay changes like how to pin but its still the same game. Graphics look almost the same and im comparing a PS2 game to PS3. 2K14 looks worse than 2013 in graphics. Not so much the hype but pissed off with lack of improvement.

 

3. Resident Evil 5: I expected a survival horror game and got a stop and pop shooter. This is how bad it is. My brother hates every single RE game ever made. He hated it on PS1 and PS2. I got RE on PS3 he said why buy that crap. He tried it and never put the controler down. He also loves RE6. I also hate that game -_-

 

4. Resistance 2: After playing number 1 the gameplay changed. After seing the screens on how the game "looked". I thought wow teh graphixxxxx. The game looked good for its time but subpar, way way subpar to the screenshots or bullshots they were flashing around.

 

5. The fact Naughty Dog never made a new Jak game. I know it shoud not count but thats my biggest  upset of last gen. I loved uncharted 3 and the Last of Us. To be honest though, for my own selfish i was pissed off when they were announced instead of my beloved Jak game.

 

Sorry for the speech but a list is just a list and it does not really mean a thing.



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st

5. Skyrim - I've played it and it's a great game on itself, but everyone seems to be so in love with it and I just don't get why. Maybe it's fully enjoyable with mods, but I'm not the modding kind of guy.
4. CoD: Modern Warfare 3 - MW1 is known to be a great game. WaW was respectable. MW2 was ok. But MW3 was just repetitive and the storyline is overly dramatic.
3. Assassin's Creed in general - Great concept (Historically accurate, stunningly detailed locations, interesting parkour mechanics) but it can get boring pretty quickly.
2. New Super Mario Bros. Wii - The DS one was like "HOLY SHIT, FINALLY ANOTHER 2D MARIO!", but the Wii one despite being a great and fun game thaat I enjoyed it could've been a lot better.
1. Bioshock Infinite - Story was great, visuals were stunning, but the gameplay itself was boring as hell. 'Nuff said.

Not saying they're bad, just overrated/could've been better.

5. Halo Wars

BUNGIE did the right thing ditching Halo. For all the critical acclaim the franchise got. It didn't win GOTY. To top it off. It lost out to Journey. Yes. An indie game beat out one of the most popular FPS franchises of all time.

BUNGIE knew EXACTLY when to move on. DESTINY looks to be the "real deal". Bring it! :D

You do know Destiny has the same gameplay mechanics as all those halo games right? With a username like that I dont even know if I should take you seriously. Halo is by far my favorite series to date and even though im on ps now I still cherish the moments I spent on it, there is nothing like it on any ps. That it didnt win GOTY does not mean is overrated, the story is unique to a certain degree and even though is a fps it requires more strategy than most fps out there. I also dont like Halo Reach and cant say much about 4 because I left the series after Reach, but as far as CE, 2, 3, and ODST go some of the best experiences on Xbox to date. 

Edit: Games I've Actualy played and thought were over rated-

1.COD BlackOps

2. Killzone 3- campaing dialog is a little exaggerated 

3. COD MW3- not much improvement over 2 and online is the same as the previous iterations

4. Borderlands 2- I just could not get into it yet friends and internet boards praise how great its supposed to be

5. Halo Reach - sadly it lost the traits than made the series unique and became Halo duty 1.5



5. Battlefield III
4. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
3. Xenoblade
2. Rayman Origins
1. Assassin's Creed II

In no particular order:

Crysis 2 - Bought Selnors hype. Lulz Never again.
Uncharted 3 - Least favorite out of all.
New Super Mario Bros Wii - Nothing special imo.
Gran Turismo 5 - Yes I liked/played the previous ones. This one just got stale quick, despite the content.
Half Life 2 - I really don't see it. Yes I beat the episodes too.

Thought you said you wouldn't ever touch a Ps3 because of Sony fanboys...Now suddenly you've played all the best games it has too offer xD


No I said I wouldnt own a PS3 because of people like you. Sorry you cant accept my opinion and have to make something up in order to have a valid response but really the only thing you can do is #dealwithit. Its not like I need your permission or need you to accept my opinion on games I find over rated. I also named off a big xbox game and I didnt own an 360 for more than 2 weeks. I managed to play those games with friends who own those console.

People like me? gamers? or are you calling me a fanboy? 

Think about it and get back to me.

Here you go: remember when Rockstr got suicide threats and death threats when GTA went Multi platform? I sure do because its the day I sold my PS consoles.

So did you travel to the future and play those games and then return to the past and write that?
